MONA’S ALIVE?!

It’s possible. I mean it’s more likely than it was last week when I was hopefully claiming she is still alive, so that’s progress. Turns out what Mike was hiding from the girls was that he knew all along about Mona’s plans to fake her own death. Mona went all Gone Girl, extracting her own blood and setting it up to frame Allison for her murder as a means to win A’s trust and finally find out who they really are. A brilliant scheme for sure! But Mike and the girls now believe that A double crossed Mona and murdered her themselves. Because Mike hasn’t seen or heard from Mona since. It pains me to say that Mona’s murder could still be true, I can’t help but remember seeing an obviously dead Mona stuffed in the trunk of a car, but I have kept hope alive all season that our Ms. Vanderwaal will reappear and this just adds fuel to my fire. The question now becomes what to do about Allison. She is in jail and about to go to trial for Mona’s murder and now the liars aren’t even 100% sure if Mona is dead. They are 100% sure however that Ali is innocent. So we are pretty much back to square one on who A is. It’s not Mike, and it’s not Ali.

Since Hannah’s dad was a jerk and isn’t going to give her enough money for her to go to one of the amazing schools she got into, Hannah is taking matters into her own hands and entering a beauty pageant. Bad news is, turns out she isn’t pageant material. And after she worked so hard to learn a kick ass dance routine to showcase as her talent. Her ‘coach’ says that she would rather be coaching Emily because Hannah isn’t what the judges are looking for. I’d vote for you Hannah! But Emily being the awesome friend that she is, tells off the mean pageant coach and then offers to do the pageant for Hannah and win her the money.

Speaking of Emily, guess who meets their girlfriend’s husband this week? Yes, that’s right, Emily comes face to face with Eric, Talia’s husband. The whole encounter is strange and awkward and what makes it worse is that Eric seems to think that Emily is just a fling. Emily Fields is nobody’s fling. The woman is doing a beauty pageant to win $20,000 to give to her friend. You don’t just fool around with a woman like that, you put a ring on it. What makes matters worse is that he didn’t just assume this, but Talia told him this because she claims she didn’t know where things were going with Emily. But as Mrs. Marin says, you don’t just jump into relationships without any intention. Clearly Talia was on a different page than Emily. I for one am of the mindset that honesty is the best policy. If all Talia wanted was a fling with a girl to experiment and try it out with no strings attached then that’s fine but at least have the courtesy and respect to tell the girl that. Let’s have all parties know the situation and make an informed decision whether they want to participate or not. Seems like Talia is just trying to have her cake and eat it too. Good thing Emily dumped her. She can do much better.

It finally happened, Spencer went full on stealth mode, broke into an art gallery, almost got arrested by her boyfriend and kissed barn boy. Yup, it was an eventful episode. While strolling through the Hollis campus Spencer and Johnny spot their vandalism showcased in an art gallery window.  The injustice of it all causes the two to wait until dark, pick the lock of the gallery and steal back what is rightfully Johnny’s. Unfortunately Johnny is an amateur and ends up setting off the security alarm as he is grabbing the last piece. The two still almost get away with it, making it all the way to a gas station before Officer Toby catches up to them. Spencer doesn’t understand why Toby has to arrest Johnny, I for one think she should be focusing on the fact that he is nice enough not to be arresting her too. I mean they committed a crime by breaking and entering. It doesn’t really matter who the art belongs to. Either way, Toby puts Johnny in cuffs and tells Spencer to walk away. But he also reveals the reason he hasn’t been around is because she is still on Tanner’s radar. He is keeping his distance because Tanner is trying to use their relationship to get closer to Spencer.

He doesn’t stick around to explain it in depth but it makes sense. Toby joined the force to try and protect Spencer so it only makes sense that he is still doing everything in his power possible to protect her. I don’t know why he couldn’t have just explained this to her sooner. Maybe then it wouldn’t have ended with Johnny kissing Spencer before he goes to pack his things. Apparently Spencer’s mom doesn’t like criminals as boarders.
