Pretty Little Liars: "Monsters in the End" Episode Review  
Pretty Little Liars 1.21 "Monsters in the End"

OMG THOSE CLOWNS ARE FREAKY, HEART RATE GOING UP NOW! D: D: D:

THIS IS PERHAPS MY FAVORITE SHOT WITH THEM OPENING THE STORAGE AT THE END OF THE EPISODE TO FIND WHAT ALISON HID AWAY (HALF EXPECTED TO SEE SOMETHING MORE GRUESOME, LIKE A DEAD BODY OR SOMETHING....IDK, I WATCH TOO MANY CRIME THINGS....):



OKAY SO. SECRET KEY LEADING TO A HARD DRIVE TO WHOEVER HAS BEEN SPYING ON THE GIRLS FOR YEARS. THIS IS SERIOUSLY GETTING CREEPIER AND CREEPIER. :O AND ALL CENTERING AROUND ALISON, AND NOW THE GIRLS ARE PAYING THE PRICE FOR HER SINS. OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT. Like okay, I'm completely into figuring out who has been sending them messages and who is Alison's real killer, and it's definitely a tag team of two individuals, either both working separately or together (or two working together while a third party is involved.) Though I have my theories, however one is kind of shifting a bit....

While I still think Jenna is a mega bitch and is definitely up to no good, perhaps she thought about getting that key from the girls, and setting up Caleb to do so, was so that she could prove that Toby was innocent at the night the stink bomb exploded leading to her blindness. Or perhaps that it could also prove that it was Alison that caused it, and the girls by association. Obviously that lunchbox held all footage of whoever recorded them over the years, and we don't know if there was any footage of them committing certain crimes. If so, could whoever did this also be A? Or be her killer stalking them now? Because we do know that someone is also recording the girls during this entire thing......

I'm getting chills right now, omg.

OMG HANNA. ;_____; I understand her right to be upset, because that is seriously a violation of her privacy, though I think she should cut Caleb some slack. They're not all innocent when having to do something that they were setup by someone else for cash, she would know, after what A had her doing and all. I feel like she feels used, and she was, but I also feel like she doesn't truly blame Caleb and is just using him as an emotional punching bag.

I wonder if he'll be coming back, or if they are officially done. I don't want them to be done, he obviously cares for her, and she does for him. She's just hurt but, I would hate to think that they're over all because of stupid Jenna. :( :( :(

Oh, and NOW Hanna's mother is all like "well I was wrong about him" Great. Thanks. You've been a big help in that department.

Still don't like Paige. She's such a dead weight with her dramarama, like I understand the resistance but srsly, grow some fucking balls or don't be there at all. She needs to go away forever and let Emily hookup with that blonde chick, because they had more chemistry than Emily and Paige ever will. Just saying. *kanyeshrug*

LEGITIMATELY SO FUCKING SCARED FOR SPENCER. I mean, not that I haven't been for the last several episodes now but JESUS FUCKING CHRIST, HER CONFRONTATION WITH IAN AND THEN GETTING TRAPPED IN THE FUN HOUSE WITH ALL THOSE MESSAGES FROM A AND THEN LOCKED INSIDE. AND THEN IAN POSSIBLY LOOKING AT HER PHONE AND MAYBE USING IT AGAINST HER IDK. I AM JUST SO FUCKING SCARED FOR HER AND WHAT MIGHT HAPPEN IN THE FINALE. PEOPLE ARE SUGGESTING THAT SPENCER GETS SERIOUSLY HURT AND I'M LIKE NOOOOO! NOT MY BB SPENCE! D: D: D: D: D: Someone seriously has it out for her, and it's definitely Ian because who else would it be? He's such a crazy and scary motherfucker, the way he's always creeping around and making sure that Spencer shuts her mouth. I mean seriously, why doesn't Spencer wear like a recording device on her while they're talking alone? Catch something on audio with him threatening her or whatever? I mean seriously, best case scenario would be that they drop the "person of interest" charges against her.

Also about Melissa....I saw someone theorize that Ian abused Melissa and Melissa is actually scared for her life, and therefore must lie in order to remain alive (and now that she's pregnant, for her sake and for her future child.) I don't know how that works with everything, but it's plausible. Especially since Spencer caught Melissa telling a false tale about Hilton Head.

BUT ANYWAY, AREN'T SPENCER AND TOBY TOO ADORABLE FOR WORDS?? I MEAN, I LOVE THAT SPENCER DECIDED TO GO WITH THE "FUCK THIS SHIT" RESPONSE TO ALL THE WHISPERING AND SUPPOSED RUMORS AND JUST RAN UP TO TOBY, HUGGED AND KISSED HIM. SPENCER CHOSE TOBY OVER HER FAMILY, Y'ALL. IT'S NOT AS SKETCHY AS IT SOUNDS, BECAUSE HER FAMILY (EXCEPT HER MOTHER) SEEMS TO BE ALL AGAINST HER AND SHE FEELS TOTALLY UNSAFE AT HER OWN HOME. SHE NEEDS SOMEONE LIKE TOBY IN HER LIFE, ASIDE FROM THE GIRLS WHO ARE SHARING EACH OTHER'S SECRETS, TOBY UNDERSTANDS HER SITUATION BETTER THAN ANYONE ELSE AND I HOPE THEY REMAIN TOGETHER FOR A LONG TIME. ♥ ♥ ♥



TOBY/SPENCER = OTP


EZRA AND ARIA ARE (SUPPOSEDLY) GOING TO GET CAUGHT, AND ALL I CAN SAY IS THIS: IT TOOK Y'ALL THIS LONG??!! I MEAN IF A ROOKIE COP CAN PLACE THE PIECES TOGETHER WHILE AN ENTIRE TOWN/SCHOOL FULL OF WATCHFUL KIDS AND AUTHORITIES, THEN THAT'S REALLY LOLARIOUS TO ME.

Not sure if they'll be found out or if it might look like Ezra is taking sexual advantage of Aria (as the detective was looking around, one would suggest pedophilia suggestions everywhere.....) So idk how it'll all go down.

BEST LINE OUT OF THE ENTIRE EPISODE:



SPENCER: He stuck his hands in her panty drawer!


This is tied with Hanna's "Fool me once, shame on you, fool my best friend, you're dead freaking meat!", which comes close to Emily bitching out at Paige.


PLOT THICKENS. SUSPENSE IS KILLING ME. CAPSLOCK REQUIRED.

SOMEONE WHO WATCHES THIS SHOW, COME TALK WITH MEEEEEE! D: D: D:

OH SHOW, YOU ARE JUST SO GOOD. The Spencer/Toby moment was just so perfect! And yeah, definitely lolarious if the rookie cop figured out Ezria. And I like them!

I'm so sadface for Hanna and Caleb!! And lol, Em. "I didn't realise you'd be so.. punctual."

(Do you watch any of the promos? Curious.)
Renée: Pretty Little Liars. Emily.rogueslayer452 on March 16th, 2011 04:56 am (UTC)
EVERYTHING ABOUT TOBY/SPENCER MAKES ME SQUEE. THEY ARE JUST TOO PERFECT! <3 <3 <3

I'm just wondering how is this rookie guy even finding out all of this crap, he's purposefully following all the girls? I just, yeah, idk. But it's still funny to me how after all their close calls they get caught by this rookie, lol.

OMG EMILY YOU ARE CRUSHING ON BLONDE GIRL. That was so hilarious. XD

I haven't watched the promo for the finale yet.

AL;KSDFLAKSJFAKLSDJF

I'm starting to think that Ian is not A but he KNOWS about A and he's the one who left that funhouse message thing and he's the one who trapped Spencer. IDK. BUT GOD IAN IS SO FUCKING CREEPY JFC. AHHH!

I want to think that Caleb is going to come back in the finale and he got on the bus but he decided to get off or caught a bus back into town because of everything with Hanna and how they left off and everything. :(

AND TOBY/SPENCER OMG. ♥♥♥

Oh, oh! And Ian as the one spying on them? Y/N?

AND CAN PAIGE JUST GO AWAY ALREADY. Her and Emily have no chemistry and that plot is so shoehorned in. :( AND BLONDE/EMILY HAVE WAY MORE CHEMISTRY AND ARE WAY CUTER.
Renée: Pretty Little Liars. Spencer.rogueslayer452 on March 16th, 2011 06:48 am (UTC)
Ian is definitely up to something. He's too much of a creeper who is trying to hide whatever secret he has involving Alison, and doing whatever it takes to frame Spencer for everything. I mean, fuck he's creepy. D: WHEN HE OPENED THE CYLINDER HOLE WHERE SPENCER WAS TRAPPED IN AND HE HAS THAT CROWBAR IN HIS HAND?? PSYCHO POSE OMFG! AND YES, I TOTES THINK HE MUST BE SPYING ON THEM. WHO ELSE WOULD BE DOING IT?

IKR? He and Hanna were adorable and this just leaves us with no real conclusion to them. I also want to think he'll return in the finale, or next season. :(

TOBY/SPENCER ARE MY OTP. THEY ARE JUST TOO FREAKING CUTE ASJFDLA;JSKFDASKFJDKJ. ♥

ITA RE: PAIGE. Like, I understand their implications of what they want to do with the storyline, awkward teen girl trying to come out of the closet but is super afraid to, however didn't we already do this with Emily? Paige is just holding Emily back plus is super annoying anyway, and I feel like Emily need someone who knows who they are and aren't afraid of themselves. GTFO PAIGE NOBODY WANTS YOU AROUND ANYMORE. EMILY/CUTE BLONDE CHICK, Y/Y?
kaiyotekaiyote on March 16th, 2011 01:11 pm (UTC)
If he didn't kill Alison I would be SHOCKED. (Unless it's something like he THOUGHT he killed Alison but she was actually still alive and then someone else killed her.) But srsly. He is so creepy and just up to no good at all. And Spencer should totally have a recording device on her when she's with him AND CATCH HIM IN THE ACT. ...of saying something.

MAYBE HE WILL! Because things really did seem so unfinished with them. :( And it seems like there's ~more to be told with their story.

THEY'RE SO LOVELY. ♥

Yeah. It's also wayyy too close to Emily's storyline with Maya. :\ Like, we JUST did this. Which was the same problem I had with TVD and Tyler/Caroline basically, but that's unrelated.

AND Y! DEFINITELY Y!
Renée: Pretty Little Liars. Emily.rogueslayer452 on March 16th, 2011 10:06 pm (UTC)
The thing is that in the video we don't see anything other than him and Alison together. So there's definitely another piece of the puzzle that they're (and we're) not seeing. But his actions have been veryyyyy suspicious borderline dangerous. D: D: D:

I hope so. Because it seems very open-ended there and you can tell that he cares for her a lot, same with her, but she's pretending to be stoic. JUST MAKE-UP AND GET BACK TOGETHER ALREADY!

And other thing, which might be somewhat just in my head, but isn't Emily still technically with Maya? They never officially "broke up" that was outright stated, right? She had called and just assumed that Maya had moved on. It just fills me with some kind of uneasiness over the whole thing with Emily getting involved again. idk, does it seem like that to you?
no good eitheralanna_zero on March 17th, 2011 12:04 am (UTC)
I was so sad about Hanna/Caleb and Spencer/Toby, but then Spencer turned around and ran back to Toby and they HUGGED and KISSED and everything was alright again.

When Ian "rescued" Spencer - scariest scene ever, like...JFC.
Renée: Pretty Little Liars. Still here bitches.rogueslayer452 on March 17th, 2011 07:01 am (UTC)
I loved that Spencer ran to Toby in the end. Of all the people who she can trust at the moment besides her friends, it's him, and I love that she made that decision herself. I love their blossoming relationship sfm. ♥

I'm sad for Hanna/Caleb though. :( I hope that he returns and they b work things out.

SERIOUSLY! That entire funhouse scene was incredibly creepy, imagine getting trapped inside of there with someone like Ian fucking around with you (I still think that he probably did it, just to scare her because honestly, who else would it have been?) He's such a creeper. *shudders*
no good eitheralanna_zero on March 17th, 2011 12:50 pm (UTC)
NGL, the Spencer/Toby scene at the end made me so unbelievably happy.

I'm sad for Hanna/Caleb too. I hope as well that he'll come back and that they won't just FORGET about him like they did with other characters.

Haha yeah, Ian really creeps me out.


Renée: Pretty Little Liars. Secrets.rogueslayer452 on March 17th, 2011 12:59 pm (UTC)
Spencer/Toby are totally my OTP, they make me smile because they just work. :D

It's interesting how the show has secondary characters there one minute, but gone the next. But some of them return unexpectedly like they were never gone. It's weird.
Chrissaodysseedesreves on March 17th, 2011 03:36 am (UTC)
I'm too tired to really offer any comments of substance but for some reason I don't actually see Ian as a threat anymore. I don't know why, but I don't.

I am worried for Spencer, though. I think chances are high that something could go seriously wrong for her in the season finale.

I want Paige to go. She's annoying and makes me mad. I love the blond chick, though. She should stay!

I loved Hanna in this episode. I totally understand where she's coming from but I also think she should cut him some slack. I liked seeing her stand up for herself (in a way, I guess) and her friend, though, because in the past she's really taken a lot of crap from guys like Sean and I'm glad she's not. I do want her to get back together with Caleb, though!! They should definitely be together! I wonder if she'd be AS upset if she hadn't slept with him. Maybe that's what's bothering her so much, that she slept him while he was keeping this secret from her. Because, seriously, I think Sean has done worse things than what Caleb did and she kept going back to him.

By the way, I also wanted to reach through the screen and punch Mona when she tore up the letter and threw it away!

Do you think that the former fiance will come up again in the Ezra/Aria storyline? It just seemed like a waste of airtime because we've already covered that Aria doesn't like that they can't have a real relationship with pictures and hand-holding in public... I don't know, it feels like it was there and over way too quickly!
Renée: Pretty Little Liars. Hanna.rogueslayer452 on March 17th, 2011 12:52 pm (UTC)
Ian is particularly scary, though, with the way he acts towards Spencer and making his threats towards her. But it does make you wonder what he's hiding since we only know the suspicions based on the video the girls saw, but we don't know anything else other than that. While I'm not convinced that he's no longer a threat, I've also been theorizing that if Ian isn't behind what happened to Alison and isn't really A, that he's been blackmailed by whoever is and framing Spencer is the only way of ensuring his safety. idk...

I'm extremely scared for Spencer, because whoever is doing this is definitely doing whatever it takes to make her life miserable and make her guilty of something she didn't commit. D:

I wonder if she'd be AS upset if she hadn't slept with him. Maybe that's what's bothering her so much, that she slept him while he was keeping this secret from her. Because, seriously, I think Sean has done worse things than what Caleb did and she kept going back to him.

I think you're right, Hanna probably wouldn't have been as harsh if she didn't sleep with him, because she feels betrayed on the worst level. Imagine having feelings for someone, letting your guard down (not to mention giving up something she was saving for someone she cared about) and realizing that they were being paid by someone you despise to search through your personal belongings during that entire time? Even if Caleb is sorry and regretful and broke off his arrangement with Jenna the moment he knew he genuinely cared for her, it must hurt really bad regardless. ;___; So I understand that for sure, though I hope they do get things straightened out between them because they are so cute together. Like Spencer and Toby. ♥

By the way, I also wanted to reach through the screen and punch Mona when she tore up the letter and threw it away!

Am I the only one that thought she could have been A for a split second when she read the letter before tearing it up? What if Caleb had written something about Jenna in there and that Mona didn't want Hanna to know the truth about? But then it was just an apology letter and him saying that he loved her. Idk, this show throws me for a loop sometimes that you don't know what to expect.

And yes, the former fiance will definitely appear again. I think in the preview/promo stills for the finale we actually will see her in person, so this adds more tension to them. But I don't like the Aria/Ezra thing anyway so, meh.

THIS SHOW.

I don't write it up in my journal because I'm so bad at fandom lately, so I'm really glad you wrote this up and just.

SPENCER/TOBY MOMENT OF AWESOME.
LOVE THEM.

Also yes, also very worried for Spencer.
It's weird how Hanna used to be my favorite but now I think Spencer wins this.
IDK.


Lol, I love Aria/Ezra but OMFG I AGREE. SRSLY. HOW ARE THEY ALL SO CLUELESS?
Renée: Pretty Little Liars. Spencer.rogueslayer452 on March 17th, 2011 09:50 pm (UTC)
Hanna was my top favorite character too, and still is out of all the girls, but Spencer has totally been stealing the show for the last several episodes. I've just come to appreciate Spencer a whole lot. Not that that's a bad thing, I love them all. But yeah, I'm kind of torn between being a Hanna!girl and a Spencer!girl. lol
