Pretty Little Liars 6×07 ‘Oh Brother, Where Art Though’ Did you remove your

25

 

The girls preform amateur surgery to remove their trackers, Toby gets stoned before he ambushes Charles, and Ali gets kidnapped. 

Alison has disappeared. All the Liar’s calls have been going straight to voicemail. Come to find out Alison has been kidnapped, by her father. After receiving the threatening birthday card Mr. D has freaked out, packed Ali up and driven all night to a hotel in the middle of nowhere. Dude, don’t you know you aren’t safe anywhere? A has the Liar’s chipped, he had an underground dungeon, he followed your daughter to New York, getting out of Rosewood isn’t really going to help things. Especially when you daughter drugs you with sleeping pills and sneaks out after you fall asleep. Alison is worried about Jason who has opted to stay behind because he actually wants to meet his psychopathic brother. Charlie leaves him a little birthday invitation attached to a red balloon instructing Jason to RSVP alone or not at all. Jason actually listens to Charlie and follows the address on the invitation to what seems like an old arcade.

But of course when you throw a party there is always someone wanting to crash it. The Liars have been warned by Ali (once she steals her dad’s cell phone and locks herself in the bathroom) that Charles is planning on a big surprise for his birthday. They decide to surprise him first. Since he doesn’t know that they found the trackers implanted in their necks they are going to use them to their advantage. Spencer and Hannah do some research and come up with the perfect plan. Let’s cut the chips out of each other necks, track Jason’s GPS location right to Charles, and follow them without alerting anyone, not even the police. Ya…sounds like a great plan. Hence where Toby comes in. Spencer agrees to tell Toby in lieu of the police, since their plan hinges on secrecy. But Toby has other plans once he learns about Charles and his secret birthday brother bonding. Toby won’t tell Tanner but he insists that he follow Jason alone. He doesn’t want to put the girls in harms way. Buddy you should know your girlfriend by now, she won’t just sit by at let you endanger yourself for her. So after all of five minutes the girls hack Jason’s GPS themselves and follow after the boys.

The plan actually almost goes fairly smoothly aside from Charles (or the hooded figure we assume to be Charles) letting loose a barrage of baseballs, fired from a pitching machine, at the Liars, Jason, Toby and Lorenzo. Everyone is down except for Toby who has a clear shot at Charles, if it wasn’t for those weed cookies he found in Spencer’s bag and ate. Obviously he didn’t know they had a special ingredient, Spencer didn’t even know she had them. But they are making Toby trip something fierce. So not only did Charlie get away, but now Jason is pissed that his family reunion got ruined. Toby knows about Spencer’s drug problem, and is now worried that one of his colleague will see him and he will get fired. Oh and the girls are all terrified because A is still out there.

After the fact, the DiLaurentis children are discussing their long lost brother when they hear a boy’s voice yelling for Jason to come and play. Following the sounds of laughter and fun they come upon a video playing in their house. The video shows a young Jason and Alison celebrating the birthday of cousin Freddie (aka brother Charlie) in an arcade, playing games and having cake. The little boy in the video seems so sweet and so happy to be playing with his siblings, until he asks when he has to go back. We assume this is to Radley. His mother must have signed him out to celebrate his birthday with his siblings, probably one of his few treasured memories, considering he still has the video commemorating it. If this is the case, why all the blackmailing? Why the torture? Why is he so obsessed with Alison? Why is he not focused on Jason? Perhaps I was right in assuming that he resents Alison and sees her as the reason for his incarceration. But if that isn’t the case maybe Charlie isn’t A. Maybe he has a partner, someone with a vendetta against the Liars. At the moment there is no clear motive for why Charlie would have put the Liars through all of the black mail and harassment that they were subjected to. We can only speculate that it was to get to Alison. But it seems a bit over the top. And with the show having another season and a half to go I think that Charlie isn’t going to be the big A. To me it is looking more and more like they are going to reveal Charlie to us soon, but that A will still be out there. Perhaps Charlie’s partner is a female like Clark’s accidental photo implies. I’m sure it will already be someone we know, the question is who?

With only two episodes left of the summer season you know some intense stuff is going to go down. We just have no idea what. The fact that this episode wasn’t that crazy makes me think they have set it up to have something amazing happen next week. Will they finally reveal Charles? Will we get to see his face? Is he even the hooded figure? Is the hooded figure even A? There are too many questions that we are waiting for the answers.
