I promised you flashback filter and I will deliver flashback filter. The last photo in Part Two obviously falls under that category but it never achieves its full potential without Alison.
Bam! There it is, in all of it’s vaseline on the lens glory. The storyline goes that Alison was murdered but, and maybe I’m alone in this, is it possible she tanned to death. I mean, that glow however aided by technology is unnatural. Also, anyone else wish she had a more commanding voice? I like HBICs brassy, like Jessica Walter.
Another trend I’ve noticed is that Ashley constantly mentions that she just brewed some coffee but that it’s not as fresh as it should be. Oh, she also walks with some sort of beverage container, like, all the time. The top is a little too Stevie Nicks for me though. I wonder if she can tell whether thunder really only happens when it rains.
Wow. Definitely not questioning my sexuality anymore. Hot body in a flashback filter swoon.
Ugh. Jenna. Come on. Are you seriously going to tell me that she wore black all the time even before the accident? AND that she kept the same sunglasses? No, I refuse to believe it. Not in a town where the average teenage girl has steamer trunk devoted to accessories.
Jason DiLaurentis, I do declare you’re down right dashing. Fantastic choice on the patterned tie. Let this be a lesson to you all: ties need not be solid all the time. If you’re wearing a suit, punch it up with a patterned tie or, for the bolder gentleman, a loudly coloured pocket square.
But when you choose that patterned tie, make sure it doesn’t blend in with your shirt. Otherwise, you run the risk of looking like your dad in a rented suit at a wedding reception. Oh hey, Ian - when did you slither back into town?
Finn? Finn from “Glee”? Is that you? Oh no, my mistake, it’s just Sean in the uniform of a typical high school boy. I’m going to stop buttoning my shirts so I can recapture my youth. And date the hottest girl in school.
SEE!??!?! I wasn’t being facetious - even Noel Kahn is rocking the unbuttoned shirt. Side note: Noel Kahn must always be full named. It’s never just Noel - always #NoelKahn.
Poor, poor Lucas. Trying to get all up in Hanna’s grill and ask her on a date. When will you realize she’s sees you as nothing more than a confidant? Maybe once you grow a pair, I guess. “I can haz swag?” - no, Lucas. No you may not.
It’s not that I don’t like Lucas’ character, I really do but I also really wish that he would come out of the closet. Sure there’s not evidence of him being gay other than this hideous periwinkle cardigan but I find him crazy adorable. Even with this cardigan. Which is hideous.
OK - cute explosion. Short shorts, remote controlled boats and, forgive me for being crass, an impressive posterior. Every time I look at this photo, I get that Ja Rule/J-Lo remix of “Ain’t It Funny” stuck in my head; specifically the opening poetic line from Ja Rule that goes, “It must be the ass that got me like this”. I’m so street.
Now we draw ever closer to the Season 2 premiere and I’m not ashamed to say that I have a bottle of Prosecco and some snacks planned for the event. I’m not proud to say that but like I said, I’m also not ashamed. Keep checking back for more PLL Retro Recaps and until next time!
