Pretty Little Liars – The Goodbye Look – Recap
Last week the girls were shocked to discover who they thought was Ian had been texting Melissa. But for how long? Is Melissa hiding something? The girls panic about him possibly being alive and find it difficult to find the time to discuss it. They can’t just always meet in a creepy random overgrown greenhouse. Thanks to their parents they can’t even sit together at lunch. Maybe all this free time could be used to get some practice in common sense. Like, perhaps not leaving your laptop lying around when random strangers are traipsing through your house. Especially when said laptop has incriminating evidence on it that people are dying over. Sigh. I don’t really understand quite why Emily is being rewarded in this episode for being so stupid but she is. She’s being scouted for college and she thinks this is a fantastic excuse not to move. Honestly, she probably should. There are killers running around that town breaking in to people’s houses. Get out while you can.
While we haven’t gotten any closer to discovering what The Jason Thing is in this episode, we learn that he has moved back and wants his privacy. Oh and the actor was replaced. NewJason has floppy 90′s hair and apparently was an underwear model. And he’s even creepier than before. I’m not loving him actually but I appreciate that he’s obviously hiding something. Spencer goes to see him and welcome him back and he almost looks on the verge of wanting revenge on her. He repeatedly asks Spencer if there is any truth to Ian confessing to Ali’s murder. It’s like he wants to be sure of something. If in my opinion, Ian weren’t already dead I would think Jason was on his way to kill him. Maybe he already has the body and is mulling over how best to lay it to rest. When Spencer kept repeating Ian’s words “I killed Alison” I really thought Jason had a recorder in his pocket. That would really not be good for poor Spencer.
Spencer’s not having a good week. She can’t see her friends and her boyfriend Toby gets hired and fired for a job in one day. To top it off, someone breaks into her house(more on that later) and her sister is obviously lying to her. I love that Melissa is lying to Spencer. I’ve always been suspicious of her. Spencer discovers that Melissa went outside with the sonogram. Who was she showing it to? Ian? That’s what they want us to think but I have my theories..
The subplots in this episode were wayyy too long and were incredibly boring. Hanna’s dad comes back to town to see her now that she’s in trouble. Blah blah blah. So he’ll come to see her when she’s in the paper but won’t when she’s run over by a car and in the hospital? Well, I guess he sent a plant so that’s okay. Mona tries to reconnect with Hanna and is finally forgiven. Who cares. I’m more interested in the Alison flashback where she says she has hiding places all over the house. What else will we discover she has been hiding?
It’s Ezra’s last week at school and he’s desperate to win back Aria before he leaves. It’s not like she doesn’t know where you live. Although why she would stay there alone when A has a key is beyond me. I hope they changed the locks. Ezra is late at a “meeting” and Aria waits at his apartment for a couple hours. She finally gives up and leaves and heads to Spencer’s house. Unfortunately, Spencer is off chilling with Toby. Aria arrives to see that the house has been broken into. Yet she walks in anyway. Who does that?? Call the cops! As she stands in the kitchen yelling for Spencer over and over, a hooded figure attacks her and pushes her into a desk before bolting out of there. Was it A? Were they waiting for Spencer? Why don’t they tell their parents?? Or at least go to another town to talk to the police since the ones in Rosewood don’t do anything right. Fitzy has his last day at school and gives a heartfelt speech that results in Aria running to him in slow motion so they can makeout in the parking lot. Oy.
Jason is creepily putting up a fence as the girls walk by and notice a tarp on the ground. Why don’t they question that more? It’s obviously supposed to be a body but in my opinion if it was Ian, it would totally smell. An innocent puppy is sniffing it until A’s gloved hand comes over to pet it. I was seriously holding my breath thinking A would snap it’s neck. Save the puppy!
