A ‘Pretty Little Liars’ Mystery: Who’s In The Trunk?
Pretty Little Liars’ third season came to a dramatic conclusion, and left us with more questions than answers. The episode opened up many cans of worms (Ali is alive?) and made things even more mysterious (can we really trust Toby?) than ever before. I’m still pondering some of the many mysteries surrounding Ali, Toby, Jenna, and the ‘B’ Team.
One of the mysteries leaving audiences on the edge of their seats revolves around Wilden’s waterlogged police cruiser, its mysteriously durable laptop, and a little something shocking in the trunk. Considering all the other questions from the episode, this one makes my brain hurt the least and doesn’t feel like I need to draw a flow chart to answer.
In an interview with Zap2it, producer Oliver Goldstick more or less confirmed the mysterious shocker in the trunk wasn’t a what… but a who. So which unlucky Rosewood resident got Rosie Larsen’d in the trunk? (I promise that will be my only reference to The Killing.) We’ll find out in the opening moments of season four premiering June 11.
If, like me, you just can’t wait that long to wildly speculate, here are some of my top contenders:
'Pretty Little Liars' Recap: Spencer Finally Snaps
This week on Pretty Little Liars, Spencer finally completely loses her mind and it’s a glorious thing to behold. If you’ve been enjoying the half vampire, half rage-monster Spencer has become since finding out about Toby, than this was unhinged Spencer at her very best.
On a skank spiral and with nothing to lose (her hairbrush having been lost many weeks ago) Spencer finally just snaps and dives directly for Mona’s jugular. It was like watching one of those nature documentaries on the science channel. Or like that moment in Mean Girls when Lindsay Lohan imagines the mall fountain as the communal watering hole. If it wasn’t for Wren and the surprisingly jacked academic decathlon member Andrew, Spencer would have ripped out Mona’s throat and then retaken her tribe of nerds.
(PS: I think the show is giving teenage girls unrealistic ideas about life. Namely, that dudes in the academic decathlon look like extras from Magic Mike. The only magic there is the magic of television. Your debate team is probably not hiding an Abercrombie model. The more you know!)
Spencer’s amazing mental breakdown was clearly the highlight of this episode, the rest of the hour being more of a mixed bag. As usual, with Spencer off getting good intervention from Wren, poor Emily is left being the only Nancy Drew of the group. Meanwhile Hanna wraps herself more firmly in Caleb’s uncle-daddy storyline, while Aria’s big plot of the night involved spilling wine on a rug.
I’ve mentioned it before, but sometimes it literally feels like Aria is on a completely different show than the rest of the girls. Spencer is going insane, Hanna is reuniting her boyfriend with his deadbeat dad, Emily is almost being chopped in half by an elevator, and Aria is…trying to figure out how to lift a red wine stain out of a white rug. One of these things is not like the others.
Every episode of Pretty Little Liars usually contains about five thousand working parts and subplots. How they tie together can sometimes be a hodgepodge. Such is the case with this episode, where every moment we aren’t watching Spencer play strip academia seemed like a waste of perfectly good meltdown screen time.
Giving the girls fairly equal screen time really didn’t work this week. Spencer and Emily’s plots were a lot stronger and more interesting than Hanna and Aria’s relationship capers. Who wouldn’t rather get to the bottom of the Alison mystery or watch Spencer leap across a table to strangle Mona?
Next week it looks like the girls join forces again, but for this week the scattered plots made for an entertaining yet ultimately equally scattered episode.
The town of Rosewood, Pennsylvania is home to more creepy people and murdering sociopaths per capita than possibly any other fictional town on television.
As we get reacquainted with our favorite liars and psychos in the winter premiere of season three, just who is the creepiest of them all? You don’t have to ask the mirror, I’ve got your answers right here.
'Pretty Little Liars' Webisode: Who is Jason Talking To?
Still reeling from last week’s shocking Pretty Little Liars finale? Well the good news is that ABC Family is rolling out a series of webisodes leading up to the big Halloween extravaganza airing in October. So fans of the series won’t be in withdrawal without their favorite liars and potential serial killers for long!
Last week’s episode showed a Halloween store full of creepy masks (hey, at least it wasn’t creepy dolls?) and a voice ordering tickets to the Halloween train. If you live in a town where literally every single person seems like they probably have body parts stashed in the bushes, does ‘Halloween party train’ really seem like the best idea?
This week we’re back in that Halloween store, only this time with former lovers Jason and CeCe Drake. Called ‘A Reunion’ CeCe and Jason start with some polite chitchat…for about five seconds before the claws come out. Ouch! Turns out the breakup was a lot worse than we knew. Jason thought that Ali had run away with CeCe when she turned up missing and CeCe had promptly broken up with Jason for mysterious reasons.
Soon the two are accusing each other of being the origin of Alison’s evil. Jason says Alison basically evil leveled-up after meeting CeCe. While CeCe accurately points out that Jason was part of a group of people who weirdly taped his little sister and her friends changing. Sure that seems bad, but if you haven’t duct taped someone in a closet in Rosewood you’re basically person of the year. The standards in this town are pretty low.
As Jason storms out, the camera zooms in on the shopkeeper girl. Will she be important? Does she know something? Will she skulk around every webisode just listening in on conversations like a cast member from Downton Abbey? It’s too soon to tell.
The most important part of the webisode might have actually been the beginning. Jason is hissing on the phone with an unnamed person, demanding that he sees some proof or gets his money back. I had nearly forgotten about the large chunk of change Jason put out to find what happened to Ali’s body. Who was Jason talking to? Mona? Or perhaps it’s Toby, the other recently outted member of the A team.
Also did Jason even hang up the phone when CeCe showed up to have a conversation?
Creepiest person: It’s a tie between the mysterious person on the phone with Jason and the wall of masks. It’s hard to get creepier than a wall of masks.
A Team Member? If CeCe taught Alison everything she knows, her cunning could serve her well on the A Team. Could she know more than she’s letting on? She certainly seems to know a lot about Jason’s former activities. And maybe current as well? Does her allusion to the liquor store mean she knows about his hit and run?
ImportAnt Information: We found out part of the why and how to the Jason/CeCe breakup. But it seems like there’s more to the story than what CeCe is letting on. Then again, there’s always more to the story on Pretty Little Liars!
