Pretty Little Liars 6×02 ‘Songs of Innocence’

PLL-Recap-602-M3

The girls are back in the real world, but their minds are trapped in the dollhouse. Each Liar is dealing with their trauma in a different way, some choose to lie to the police, some choose to remodel their room and some choose guns.

We still don’t know what happened in the 3 weeks the Liars were trapped inside the dollhouse. But throughout the episode the girls have flashbacks that show us a little bit of what they had to endure. It appears that Charles liked to play games. He would make them choose between their friends, sometimes to cause pain, sometimes to simply choose who would get water that day. It’s understandable that we don’t really see the Liars together throughout the episode. I would think after having to inflict pain upon your closest friends that you would feel a little embarrassed or ashamed to see them face-to-face. Aria and Spencer do meet up to discuss Aria’s lie to the police. Sparia has a brief awkward moment when Aria apologizes to Spencer, seemingly for the things she had to do while imprisoned. But I know there are some PLL fans that think Aria is the true A, the mastermind behind all of this. If this is true maybe she is apologizing because she had a moment of remorse for putting Spencer through that torture.

If A really is Charles DiLaurentis, Allison’s long lost brother, Jason’s twin than what is his obsession with Allison all about? The only thing I can think of is he is vengeful for being the outcasted child. But then why does he not go after Jason? What is his issue with Allison and why does he care about her friends?

We are introduced to Officer Lorenzo, Toby’s new partner and Allison’s possible new love interest. The two first bump into each other when Ali comes over to talk to Toby. I think that Allison is just trying to fit in now, to be a part of her friend’s lives. Of course Toby doesn’t trust her or like her due to his past experiences with her as well as everything she put his girlfriend through. Their exchange felt a little threatening but I think that stemmed from Ali just wanting to make friendly conversation and Toby pretty much brushing her off. He says that Spencer has been through a lot, but he says it with a tone that I’m sure Ali didn’t appreciate and she just wants to remind him that she has too. The second time that Lorenzo and Allison meet is at church. A strange place to see Allison, she thinks so anyways. She tells Officer Lorenzo that she doesn’t want people to know she was at church because she thinks that they will judge her and think she is just there for show. Lorenzo responds aptly with my favorite line of the night “ would you like one of these little hamburgers?” Lorenzo seems just the right amount of funny and weird, just how I like them. But in Rosewood you have to always be suspicious of new people.

Like Sarah Harvey. She could be another victim of Charles’ psychotic games but in this show it seems like every new person is guilty of something or other. I am suspicious of the fact that she immediately ran away from home and straight to Emily. Is she planting herself close to one of the Liars as a means to further A’s agenda? She could be a new love interest for Emily. We know that the writers love to randomly add new people for the Liars to kiss but it seems like a lot of set up for just a kiss.

It seemed like this episode was all about exploring the girl’s inner demons and showing the struggle they are going through after the torment they had to face. We didn’t learn much more information about what happened during those mystery 3 weeks. It was just a set up episode, a bridge from their captivity to the next step. Hopefully next week will provide a little bit more information and excitement.
