Okay, guys, I am seriously so freaking confused right now. I’d better start watching seasons one and two of Pretty Little Liars here ASAP, or else it’s just going to keep getting worse and worse with every episode. At least I’ve got access to Netflix! Thanks, Cory…I knew being your friend would pay off at some point.
Just kidding, Cory, you know that I love you.
Episode six, ‘The Remains of the A’ begins with Hannah and Spencer. They are in the hospital looking for Mrs. Reynolds room so that they can replace the note they found on her wristband with a new, fake note that Hannah forged herself. So Hannah slips into the hospital room, nearly killing Mrs. Reynolds—she touches her and all of a sudden the woman has a mini heart-attack—but thankfully still manages to attach the new note to the band on her wrist. The old note said: “April Rose has the proof.” They know that the note was initially intended for A. The new note that they forged, however, says to come to Rosewood church later that night. The plan, of course, is to lead A to the church so that they can finally figure out who the hell he/she is. Naturally, I didn’t think this was going to work. Turns out I was right, too, but… more on that later.
Meanwhile, looks like Ari and Spencer are both having troubles with their boyfriends. Spencer is so preoccupied with everything that’s been going on that she’s tuning him out almost constantly. She’s also been spending an awful lot of time with Jason who, apparently, is her half brother. (Sorry, but I just now got that. Again, don’t hate. I’m new here.) Spencer has been investigating this April Rose character mentioned in the note for several days, but so far she hasn’t been able to come up with anything. When she asks Jason to help her out, however, he quickly discovers that April Rose is not a person. It’s actually a place—an antique shop. So Spencer and Jason both make a fieldtrip to April Rose, and when they do Spencer comes across a familiar anklet hanging on one of the mannequins there—an anklet that belonged to Alison. We see a brief flashback of Alison and Spencer hanging out (the night Spencer first noticed her wearing the anklet) and once again pretty much the only thing I could think while Alison was on screen was: Bitch, bitch, biiiitch. Seriously, why were they friends with her?! I just don’t get it.
As for Ari, she has recently discovered that Ezra has lots of cash in his sock drawer. And when I say lots, I mean a shit ton, probably somewhere around…oh, fifty-thousand dollars, maybe? Hmm. Isn’t that how much Jason was offering in exchange for information on the whereabouts of Alison’s body? Looks like Ezra’s got something up his sleeve. Sure, he says the money came from a car that he sold to some random guy a while back, but do I believe him? Naaah. Not really.
And Toby? I’ll admit I really don’t like the guy, but I did feel bad for him when Hannah dragged him to that boring party at Rosewood church. Things really started to get freaky, however, when Emily arrived and Hannah slipped into the church to wait for A. Imagine how surprised (and probably partially relieved) she was when she met a detective instead! Apparently a nurse at the hospital found the note she and Spencer put on Mrs. Reynolds wristband and gave it to the police. Oops. Again, though, I wasn’t really surprised. I imagine they’re going to drag out the mystery of A until the end of the season, at the very least.
Then, last but not least, we get the shocking moment where Spencer’s dad reveals that the anklet she and Jason turned into the police had traces of blood on it. Some of the blood is Alison’s, but some of it is someone else’s. And that someone is not Garret. So…looks like Garret isn’t the killer after all. Oh, and it looks like A is coming to Rosewood very soon. Or at least, that’s what the last scene implicated.
I’d say what I was most confused about was the flashbacks that Emily kept having. That tattoo and that note…yeah, I don’t really get it. Again, though, I’m sure if I start watching the show in its entirety it will all begin to make a lot more sense.
Don’t forget to watch Pretty Little Liars episode seven tonight! I won’t be home, but you can sure as hell bet that I will be watching it online as soon as I can. See you all next week. Or…ha. You know what I mean.
