This is probably going to be one of the easier recaps to write. Why? Because next to nothing happened in this episode. Marlene King or whoever is writing these episodes need to stop underestimating their fanbase and step it up a bit. This show has amazing potential. Don’t let it dwindle away.
Recap of tonight’s new episode of Pretty Little Liars: “Crash and Burn, Girl!”
Orange Is The New Black
Things have gone from bad to worse for Ashley. Spencer’s mom thinks it looks so bad at this point that it would almost be better if she did do it because the charge would only be 20 years. Seeing his girlfriend suffering at the hands of A once again, Caleb decides to team up with Toby to do a little investigating of their own. They have their own web board of secrets. They’re using post-its. They’re not playing around.
It looks like Emily has taken the reigns from Spencer as the lead sleuth in this episode. She steals the key to Wilden’s apartment and together, the girls go in search of clues. They’re actually using their brains tonight. They’re wearing gloves! Not much of interest in the apartment. Wilden watches a lot of porn. That’s pretty much it. And there are some nasty, expired steaks with a note from A inside. Why is A everywhere? Emily’s sleuthing may have come at a price. Her mom gets suspended from her job for losing the key. As if her night couldn’t get worse, A drives a car through their house. That’s right. Plows right through it. What a bitch.
Connor’s destroyed car is the talk of the school the following day and Mike is the top suspect. Aria worries about her brother when the principal informs her Connor’s parents want to press charges and get him expelled. The principal believes Mike stopped taking his pills. Mike is adamant that he didn’t do it but wish he had. I don’t blame him. Connor is a douche. So then, if Mike didn’t do it, who did?
Could it be? Could my dream of Ezra finally doing something
interesting violent be coming true? He certainly seems sure that Mike didn’t do it and goes out of his way to get him out of trouble. He would do anything for Aria. Here’s hoping that includes vandalism. Please be A.
Caleb and Toby investigate the plane from that night of the fire at the lodge. They run in to a mysterious guy named Nigel Wright at the airport who tells them a girl named Cece Drake was on the plane. The guys leave confused and ponder what they’ve learned. Could Cece have been who the girls saw that night?
He admits to faking a flight plan and bolts out of there. But not before Caleb steals his phone. Gotta love him. The cell phone has been calling the same number in New York. That’s not all that’s weird about Nigel. Nigel brings tea to a hidden face that he calls babe. Babe has a pair of sunglasses and what appears to be markers. Jenna? Someone else? I’m just annoyed we have to be suspicious of another new character. Don’t we have enough?
Funny Quotes of the Night:
Aria: Gee, what am I gonna watch tonight? Jimmy Kimmel or Boobs.
Aria: Not if you consider Lord of the G-strings a classic.
Caleb: John Smith? Sure it is. And I’m Pocahontas.
