PLL 7×11 Recap/Tiny Theory Session

Okay, so I watched Pretty Little Liars today! As I stated, I’m going to try to write at least one blog post a week for the rest of the series, since this is what really got me into blogging and since it’s going to be really the last chance I get to theorize while PLL is still airing new episodes. Who knows, maybe I’ll come back and write more once we know who Uber A is so I can try to fit all the pieces together. That’s what my best friend and I joked I would do before the show started its downhill spiral. Anyway, I must admit, I did like today’s episode! It wasn’t one of my favorites of the series, but it wasn’t a bad episode necessarily either. I took notes while watching it, and basically, I’m just gonna share my thoughts of the episode today with a little bit of theorizing as I go.

Ezra’s back. We knew he would be from commercials and teasers, but I do have a few thoughts about him. Does anyone else think he might just be back because Nicole didn’t want him? Or simply because he doesn’t know what he wants? I got that vibe in his first scene with Aria and I got that vibe again when he told her had to go to New York because Nicole’s parents asked him to go. I also get a super weird vibe from him and the fact that he’s always conveniently not around when Uber A stuff goes down. I mean, we know he’s got the tech savvy to potentially build a high-tech board game. Could he be Uber A? Or A.D.? Whatever we’re calling our torturous stalker these days? I would say I think not, since there’s supposed to be a wedding this season and that a little birdy (IMDB) told me his mom is supposed to be another episode, but I just don’t know. I don’t know who to trust anymore! At this point, of the regular characters, Ezra is definitely up there on the “Do not trust” list! Maybe it’s just his acting, I don’t know. I’m just saying, he always seems super sketch.

HALEB! Let me repeat, HALEB! ❤ I know we didn’t get a lot from them, but I don’t really care! I’m rooting for them! Not only because at this point they’re the only couple not having issues, but also just because I love them! That being said, I still haven’t completely ruled out Caleb in the “potential A” department, but that’s mostly just because A is a techy and so is Caleb. Other than that, I don’t really get any sketchy vibes from him, but I could be wrong. After my strong desire to rule out CeCe as A was crushed—even though I did mention she could be a hardcore suspect in past posts—I refuse to even think about not wanting someone to be A.

I do NOT like Paige! She gives me the wiggins (Yeah, clearly, I’ve been watching way too much BtVS, which as you can tell from other posts is my newest obsession)! I don’t know what it is about her, but she does! Again, maybe it’s just her acting—the acting from PLL isn’t as good as I thought it was eight months ago; maybe it’s just that they play better teenagers or something? I don’t know, but Paige just creeps me out! And what’s the deal with her and Alison? Like, I get that Ali was super horrible before disappearing, but once she came back she was fairly decent—at least, as decent as anyone in Rosewood is. Besides, Alison has been through A LOT! Give her a break if she is plays the victim a lot, it’s not like she’s faking—I mean, unless of course she is, but that’s a different story. Alison was forced into hiding by someone trying to kill her and her friends. She found out she had a sister who was originally her brother who was the one tormenting her and her friends and said sister ended up murdered after mending a relationship between herself and Alison. Then, Alison fell in love with and married a man who claimed to be a doctor but whom is really just someone entirely different! Speaking of, is Alison really pregnant? Is her baby really the “baby of a perfect stranger?” Or is the baby Emily’s? And Emily’s right. Why does she and the other Liars have to keep proving their love and loyalty for Alison? They’re only in this stalking/murder mystery mess because of her in the first place.

To be honest, I’m kind of digging this new board game A has for the Liars. I mean, it’s totally creepy, but it’s kind of cool too. Speaking of the board game, now we know Spencer is really Mary Drake’s daughter. That means Peter Hastings has three kids—Melissa, Jason, and Spencer, who are all half siblings, because Melissa is Veronica Hastings’ daughter, Jason is Jessica Hastings’ son and Alison’s half-brother, and Spencer is Mary Drake’s daughter and CeCe Drake’s half-sister. So in total that’s five siblings with Spencer coming in with the biggest family since she has three half-siblings, a biological mom and dad and an adoptive mom. Which, btw, answers question number thirteen of my twenty-one listed questions in first blog post of the season, so YAY! Maybe that’s what Maya knew? Maybe, after living in the DiLaurentis house, she learned that Spencer is half-Drake. Idk, but at least that’s one question answered. Oh, and btw, that letter from Mary to Spencer! ❤ 💔 I totally feel for Spencer and her anger toward Veronica for staying in a relationship with Peter after he cheated on her not once, but twice with two different women! And produced a child each time! Kudos to Veronica though for taking Spencer in! Knowing Radley, they probably would have done much worse than just give her up for adoption! Maybe that’s why she felt familiar in Radley? Maybe she visited Mary a bit before growing old enough to remember? I doubt it, since Veronica and Mary seem to hate each other so much, but maybe. Or, maybe it’s just another one of Peter’s lies? Maybe he secretly took Spencer to visit her birth mother?

Okay, and let’s talk about Mona and Hanna! I just LOVE them! And they’re chat totally summed up basically every relationship in Rosewood. Mona: “Do you trust me?” Hanna: “Sometimes.” Mona: “Make this one of those times.” That’s the show right there! They summed it up perfectly! haha. Anyway, I just love them. They are the ultimate screw up best friends! haha.

Spoby! ❤ 💔 We didn’t much from them either, but what we did get was just… ugh! Why didn’t she talk to him about Mary? I know they’re not together anymore and that she’s trying to be the noble ex-girlfriend, but dang it! He was always the one person there for her! I need him to be here for her now and vice versa! Maybe Spoby doesn’t end up together, but that doesn’t mean they can’t still be best friends! I see nothing wrong with that as long as they’re not like locked up in a room or the woods somewhere by themselves, because stuff, both A stay and love stuff, happens when couples are alone together! Also, they totally summed up the whole show with that conversation! Spencer: “The world doesn’t work like that.” Toby: “Maybe not the rest of the world, but this is Rosewood.”

Finally, what is up with Jenna in that dark room with A? Is she really on the A team? Or has she been captured by the A team? Or do they have something on her? She smiled pretty hugely after she said, “You said you’d tell me today about the game” and then read that it said, “End game.” Maybe it was a sadistic smile, or maybe it was just a smile of relief. Maybe she’s tired of being one of A’s chess pieces. Only time will tell.
