Pretty Little Liars Recap

Pretty Little Liars Recap: Addison, Subtracted

Is anybody else kind of obsessed with Addison?

Sure, Pretty Little Liars‘ newest addition — whose name literally rhymes with Alison, in case you weren’t able to deduce that she’s essentially the mean girl’s second coming — isn’t re-inventing the wheel when it comes to cyberbullying. But as evidenced by the fact that I’ve watched 152 episodes of this show, I’m a sucker for a mystery, and Addison is nothing if not mysterious.

Like, why is she so obsessed with the Emily-Alison-Paige drama? Why did she make up lies about Emily getting “inappropriate” with her in the locker room? Is she working with Jenna? And, most importantly, why did she pronounce “federal” as “fed’ral?”

Either way, I hope this isn’t the last we’ve seen of Addison. I liked the idea of Emily giving into her “dark” side in order to win, and it was fun watching her team up with Paige. Although… when Emily lashed out at Addison in the locker room, did anyone else think she was saying some things she wanted to say to Alison a long time ago?

Elsewhere this week…

* Even though we all know that Ezra and Aria will make it down the aisle — we’ve all seen and analyzed this on Instagram, yes? — the show is determined to make us wait for it, hence this week’s entire wallow-y Aria subplot. Following an awkward encounter with a reporter for the Philadelphia Enquirer, one who assumed that Nicole was Ezra’s fiancée, Aria took her troubles straight to Holden’s kitchen, where her old pal lent her his ear in exchange for her tomato-slicing skills. … Then, things got a little weird. Aria tried to visit Nicole, bearing the gift of salt water taffy, only to be stopped outside the rehab clinic by Holden. And instead of giving her another ear, he gave her a romantic dinner — and a shoulder. (Aria, what are you doooooing?!)

* This week also brought us Episode 2 of Hanna and Mona’s fashion-centric spinoff. (Drop your suggestions for a title in the comments section below!) Things started off snoozy — unless you enjoy watching Hanna sit around while no one returns her calls — but got real interesting when the ladies spotted one of Hanna’s unreleased designs being worn around town. And by Jenna Marshall, no less! Hanna enlisted Caleb for a somewhat successful trip to Philadelphia, where she — naturally — found herself locked in a cage, which nearly doubled as her coffin. Honestly, this girl should never leave the house.

* Lastly, Jenna may not be able to see — but damn, she can act! Following a dramatic arrival at the police station, Jenna claimed that Noel forced her to do his bidding, and that the only reason she brought a gun in the first place was to protect herself. Honestly, if the world’s hottest detective hadn’t been there to hold her back, I feel like Spencer would have given Jenna the Noel treatment. (And speaking of Spencer, didn’t you get a little sad when her mom revealed that they’re selling the house? Nothing screams “our show is ending!” like a major character leaving town.)

    Omg Aria & Spencer had the funnesit lines today. Spencer saying Jenna had balls the size of church bells was LOL worthy & aria saying the knife was bigger then her also was funny

  2. Kennedy says:

    I love Hanna and Mona together! I could seriously watch a spin off with them! I think Hanna had the best lines tonight and I loved the back in forth with Jenna and Mona. Also Addison is ridiculous and while I’m a Paily fan, I know they won’t put them together. Makes me sad because I seriously can’t stand Alison

    • fernando933 says:

      I think the best thing about this show is the dynamic between duos or groups. I love when Sparia or Spanna are together, Spencer works so well with Aria because they kind of have a sister vibe but Spencer and Hanna are a funny, when Hanna says something ditzy or dumb, Spencer always throws funny sarcasm at her. Then you have Hanna and Mona the cool bad azz girls and Emily and Hanna also are a great duo but that’s real life chemistry between shay and Ashley. Then all 5 girls are great with each other and don’t get me started on the moms when they are all together, they really need their spin off: Pretty Little Moms

    “Aria, what are you doooooing?!”
    Hopefully Holden

  4. ok this is where i disagree it did not feel romantic to me when Aria and Holden was at dinner and when Aria put her head on Holden shoulder maybe it was just me just felt like someone who needed a friend and someone who was being friend

    • Jeasica says:

      No it wasn’t just you it didn’t feel romantic to me i just wish people would get over Aria with anybody else then Ezra cause that’s not gonna happen they are endgame not Aria and Jason or anybody else it is what is and people are gonna have to deal with that

    Yeah, all that town needs is a blind girl with a gun. (The cops didn’t question that?)
