Pretty Little Liars: "Someone To Watch Over Me" Episode Review  
Pretty Little Liars 1.20 "Someone To Watch Over Me"

DID I SEE WHAT I THINK I JUST SAW? DID HANNA REALLY SLAP THE EVER-LOVING SHIT OUT OF JENNA?



YES, YES SHE DID! BOO-YAH! IN YOUR FACE JENNA, YOU SUPER STUPID MEGA BITCH. THAT'LL TEACH YOU TO MESS WITH HANNA MARIN. I STILL THINK THAT JENNA ISN'T REALLY BLIND AS WE'RE MADE TO BELIEVE, BUT SEEING HER FINALLY GET HERSELF BITCHSLAPPED WAS SUCH A SATISFACTORY WIN, AMIRITE? WHO THE FUCK CARES IF SHE IS SUPPOSEDLY BLIND. SHE HAD IT COMING A MILE AWAY.

EMILY AND ARIA'S EXPRESSIONS WERE BRILL, BTW.

Although I am super heartbroken after what happened with Hanna and Caleb. I knew something was gonna happen, even though I was begging and praying that it wouldn't be true. Unfortunately it happened, and now I'm worried that Caleb is going to disappear like the majority of other characters that have come and went on this show (to which, I have to say I was surprised about Shawn being in this episode, thought they drop-kicked him after he broke up with Hanna at the dance episodes ago, oh well) Although I feel horrible for Caleb because obviously he, too, was setup by Jenna. He was the new boy, didn't care about other people and just wanted the money, but he started growing feelings for Hanna and then called whatever deal he made with Jenna off. I feel like he still genuinely cares for Hanna and he realizes this was a huge mistake, so I hope things can work out between them soon, yes? *crosses fingers*

No, I still don't like Emily and Paige together. Mainly just Paige. I don't know what it is, but her whole story seems incredibly blah to me. I don't know if that makes me horrible because "afraid of coming out" stories are never glamorous, but idk. Paige seems fake to me (and not like that as in what happened in the episode, but the actress.....) Ugh. :/ I think my main issue is that they keep introducing these new characters and forcing some kind of connection when there's such a lack of development. Had Paige been introduced sometime in the beginning of the show I wouldn't have such a huge deal with this. But yeah, that's just me though, idk about anyone else but Paige annoys me greatly because she's that huge competitive bully that suddenly turned nice and it's like, really? Not buying that shit.

Get her out of my show she bugs major, kthx. :/

Aria is being reckless about her relationship with Ezra again. Not surprising. And her brother is acting like a whiny bitch. Also not surprising. *rolls eyes*

Guys, I am legitimately scared for Spencer. Like, seriously now. The police raiding her house, her room, taking things, stalking around her house and making her absolutely terrified, not to mention that they actually found something that connects her to Alison's murder? D: D: D: D: D: D: Ian is behind all of this, that creepy smug bastard, I think it's safe to say that he has everyone fooled except for Spencer and the rest of the girls. Like, how can you not suspect him and be confident that he's behind planting all this evidence onto Spencer and framing her? I think that Ian and Jenna might be working together, without a doubt.

But Spencer and Toby are still adorable. ♥ I love how he's supportive of Spencer, giving her advice and making sure she doesn't freak out or do anything she'd regret. Awwwwwwww. OTP of the show, for real.


Random non-spoilery things:

++ When are we gonna see Lucas again? I want to know his thoughts on the entire Caleb thing, and why he hasn't been there the entire time going "why are you rebounding with The Breakfast Club regret?" or something to that effect. I mean, they aren't done with him completely right? You would think Hanna would have mentioned him or them crossing paths in the hallway or something.

++ I still am jealous that not only are the clothes these girls wear absolutely fabulous, but their rooms are amazing too. And a lot bigger than mine, but then again most television show bedrooms are. FML.

++ I want more Alison flashbacks.

++ When people are going IF JENNA IS TRULY BLIND WHY IS SHE USING A LAPTOP?!, it makes me wonder if they've heard about computers and laptops specially made for the blind and disabled. Just saying.

++ WHO THE FUCK IS A???!?!! /forever gonna be obsessing over this

Exactly! That drives me crazy!

I don't think we've seen the last of Caleb. I'm also really hoping that we're not. I love him. He's quickly becoming one of my favorite characters. Like you said, he just started out as the new guy who needed to make some money and found a way to do it. But once he fell for Hanna he did the right thing and pulled out. I think he genuinely likes her and wants to be with her.

You'd think that if Aria's relationship with Ezra is as important as she says it is, that she'd be more careful, instinctively, to protect their relationship and him! She is slipping up way too much! And what's up with her keeping the book? She gave Emily that bag of chopsticks and darts--things that you actually wouldn't be able to trace back to Ezra--but keeps the book with a message to her that he SIGNED! There aren't a lot of Ezra's out there, it would be very easy to trace back to him!

I don't really like Paige either but I do like her better than Maya. Maya rubbed me wrong from the first episode. I want them to bring in a nice girl for Emily to date, one who's nice but brings out the fun side of Emily that Paige brought out at karaoke.

I am really scared for Spencer too!

It was really emotional for Hanna and Caleb right now because Hanna feels betrayed, which is understandable. But I really hope that we see them trying to patch things up because it's obvious that Caleb really genuinely cares for her. Besides, Hanna hasn't been this happy in a long time. I don't want whatever nice thing they have ruined all because of Jenna.

I'm still not wholly convinced of Aria and Ezra's relationship because it's not really being taken in the serious light it is. Sure, there are close-calls but nothing that really suggests they are taking this as seriously. It makes it seem like oh, student-teacher relationship, no biggie. idk, it's not really handled in a manner I would like and if it were I probably would like it better. Know what I'm saying?

I liked Maya more, but she's not coming back and Paige seems so forced with her entire storyline. It's like "we gotta get Emily to do something with her gayness, oh let's have this random bully become gay!" Perhaps there's more to it than that, but that's how it feels. And the actress who plays Paige is irksome, imo. Idk if it's the shit-tastic hair that puts me off (srsly, get a new stylist) or how she was introduced. *shrugs*

Emily does need a nice girl who isn't afraid of being herself, who isn't judgmental and who is just like her. Some think that's who Paige is, but I don't see it with her. :/

OH GOD SPENCER. D: Shit is gonna get real since we're heading the end of the season, idk what is gonna happen. *clutches pearls*

I've read somewhere that Lucas is supposed to be in the finale again, but who knows if that's true. I was confused by his sudden disappearance as well, same with that guy from the tennis club that Spencer used to date. SUDDENLY HE WAS GONE.
But who cares, since she has Toby now hehehe ^^

The behaviour of Aria's little brother is seriously pissing me off to no end.

And YES to the Paige thing. I want her GONE since she's just so...blah.

Especially since he still has a crush on Hanna, and after the whole dance-a-thon situation it wasn't like Hanna repelled him or anything, so I always wondered where he went off to or why there hadn't been a mention of him since. This show is weird with having secondary characters there one minute, then the next they disappear, then episodes later they magically reappear again. I know that they can't always include them but, some continuity of their whereabouts would be nice. Particularly since Hanna and Lucas had been friends, you'd think that there would be something, you know?

I can understand being frustrated about the parent dealio, are they or aren't they going to fix things, etc. However he seems to be such a cynic and for all the wrong reasons.

With the Paige thing, I understand what they're trying to do with her storyline, but it's not executing well because I think they introduced her far too late and made her seem like such a bland character to begin with (not to mention a mega bitch which, no, I am not turning the tables over to someone who is like that just because they are revealed to be a closeted gay). She rubs me the wrong way.
