These Halloween episodes make me a little crazy, because they have become WAY more central to the plot of the main series than a seasonal one-off should be. Fortunately, this one was mostly meandering and setting up the Ravenswood spinoff, before the big movements at the end. So I think we can make this quick. Famous last words, by the way; you know there’s seventeen nuances I have already forgotten that will end up being the crux of the next slew of episodes.
Fug File: Pretty Little Liars
The girls looked much better than usual, on average, so instead I need to bang my head against the wall about a few things that happened in this summer finale. In a nutshell: I think this show is written by randomly thrown darts, and also, A is better than anyone else in the world at online shopping. AND THERE IS A GAS MASK AT THE END. Of course.
Aria managed to put a belt in a place I have never seen one before.
The very first line of this episode — in reference to needing information — is one of the girls saying they should break out their candy striper uniforms again. I love when this show has a sense of humor about itself.
Hanna is wearing loser pants. For real.
I will say this for Pretty Little WTFs: The show has done a good job this season coming up with a big overarching story that doesn’t pertain THAT heavily to all the other stuff everyone has forgotten. So, yeah, I’m puzzled about Red Coat and I am in desperate need of about six more evidence walls, but at the end of the day, Who Shot Wilden/Who Is Confessing To Shooting Wilden is something I can enjoy even if most of the other details escape me. AND THEY DO.
Also: Aria’s dress is mind-boggling. so much so that Boggle is upset that its good name just kinda got dragged into this.
