I did watch the entirety of the crossover week. And it was pretty damn good.
It’s just a shame that this very personal, gratifying, hundredth episode of Arrow, the show that started it all, had to get awkwardly sandwiched into the whole affair.
Dat Laurel, tho.
At this point, the flashbacks and Dilaurentis family past are too much to keep up with. I was sitting there during Jenna’s exposition dump and I honestly was putting in as much effort as possible to keep up. But I can’t, anymore.
If I get something wrong, please feel free to chew me out in the comments. It’s the only way I’ll learn. Because the show isn’t doing anything to help me in that department.
We finally found Sara.
But don’t you wish that we hadn’t?
Oh, get real. You know better than to trust anything PLL shows you.
If they can retcon Mona’s dead body, then a flimsy text isn’t out of the question.
Can you imagine, though?
I think my favourite part about this second half of the season has got to be that Pretty Little Liars is making Cece’s murder the new big, important mystery
Because Pretty Little Liars seems to think that anyone, anywhere, would give even a quarter of a fuck about Cece.
Why wasn’t PLL nominated in the Comedy categories at the Golden Globes?
Lucas’ unnecessary return aside, I’m glad to say this is actually an engaging episode of Pretty Little Liars.
The soap suds are thick, as expected, but they don’t get in the way of the actual plot.
The Dan revelation was disappointing, but it was kind of just chucked in there. And did it really matter who was Gossip Girl?
In Pretty Little Liars, on the other hand, the identity of A is everything. Does anyone really care if Aria’s going to end up banging her teacher ever after?
Which makes this mid-season finale’s ass-pull even that ass-pullier.
Yes, the complication-free PLL renaissance has come to an end.
A’s back, bitches.
And they don’t know anything. Because if they did, they’d know how much better the show was without them.
