Our take on the PLL Halloween episode.
Spencer: “What in the serious fuck, Mona?”
Mona: “Look, I played dumb for a really long time. That’s boring now, I want to be myself. I kept up with my schoolwork while I was … away…”
Gay Side-Eye Kid: Most amazing and gif-able face of all.

Aria, I’ll have you know, spends almost the entire episode in a Big Top Circus Ringleader jacket with black pinstripes, over a monochrome cheetah-print shirt and matching miniskirt, like a hooker would wear. It’s not the most mindblowing shit she’s ever pulled, but the offense you take from each separate part of the outfit is so much more than the sum of its parts. No checks, no balances. Absolute power, everywhere at once, shooting out of each and every fucked-up area of Aria just like the blood of Cousin Heshy. The difference is, Cousin Heshy got better. Aria?
Later, at the charity marathon, girlfriend will have traded out — over an American-flag skull t-shirt, of course — a black cardigan with shoulder pads and sequined patches over the shoulder pads, on trend with that “drum majorette” look that’s so popular these days, but more importantly providing a seamless transition from “Carnival Day” to more of a “Carnival Night” look.
Meanwhile, Emily looks like a hot steaming cup of sex, as usual these days, Hanna’s wearing a classic blue dress from a grownup’s closet and is totally beautiful of course, and Spencer is wearing… voluminous emerald pleated old-lady pants like you would wear to cover your stilts, if you were in the Aria Circus. So, half of us are doing okay.

Who’s That Girl?
The second season finale promised that we’d find out who A was… and while we now know that Mona had a Saw situation with A and did some of her dirty work, we’re still basically in the dark — not that we’re complaining. “unmAsked” featured A’s freaky Liars-obsessed lair, revealed that A’s a size two (that bitch) and delivered a truly insane explanation from Therapy Anne about Mona being able to be omniscient, omnipresent and have perfect cell phone reception all because she’s just really, really smart and filled with adrenaline.

Sometimes this show’s so unbelievable but then other times it’s like watching a documentary about my family.

[J]ust when it’s getting to Hellraiser amounts of creepy, the scariest robot baby voice summons them to a cupboard in which the Alison Chuckie is finally revealed: A blood-covered blonde girl, half-buried in diorama dirt, waving a shovel around giggling about, “Follow me, end up like me!” Then the dolls start attacking, shelves are crashing down around their ears, and the Liars get the hell out of there. It is a peak moment.

I guess the truth is that it’s because I secretly wish Wren were my boyfriend, and somehow acting like an ass about it will help that imaginary situation come true. Is that what shipping is? I think I have that. And I do not wish to learn the cure.
