      why pll why?

    I literally screamed when they showed that Ezra is evil. SCREAMED. So happy. I’ve been saying for years now that he’s creepy, and look what happened! So stoked to see where this story goes. Dead Mama needs to GO. Forreal. But I’m SO excited to see Aria crack this season when she finds out about her pedo boyfriend. And ALISON IS BACK. Rejoice, rejoice peasants, rejoice! It’s gonna be so good. The newest one was a pretty good premiere, this season will hopefully keep up the forward momentum but we both know it won’t; I just hope we have a scene of EzrA (lol) torturing Maggie. That would be pretty satisfying.

    • Default avatar Recap Everything January 8th, 2014 / Wednesday

      Evil Ezra is easily the best thing to happen to him. <3 On a scale of 1 to 10, his character skyrocketed from a -100 to just -10 for me now. THIS IS NOT AN EZRIA ENDORSEMENT, but I actually find myself looking forward to Ezria scenes a little now. ;O

      I actually don’t think Aria will crack after she finds out Ezra is A. :O My theory is that after she finds out, Aria will turn ~*dark*~ for Ezra and become his evil partner-in-crime. *lol*

      Can’t wait for Alison to start pwning bitches everywhere~~~ Nobody is safe in the living world anymore!

      And I just watched the last episode. GURRRRL. Those Mona x Ezra scenes were my everything.

    “Speaking of which, who else thinks Pretty Little Liars should totally send the four actresses to London next season??? I kinda want to see them do shooting in a new location instead of this dinky little Rosewood set all the time.”

    “Honestly, we’ve watched four seasons of this show take place in Rosewood so anywhere else just feels kind of wrong.”

    Haha, contradicting yourself much? ;P

    • Default avatar Recap Everything January 8th, 2014 / Wednesday

      *lol* GURRRRL. You know I’ll be campaigning for the pretty little liars to travel overseas, but then as soon as they arrive at the London airport, I’d be already complaining about them not staying in Rosewood. That’s how I rollz.

  4. Default avatar don't take away his nuts! January 8th, 2014 / Wednesday

    Great recap as always! I honestly think I will go psycho paige on this show if they pull the same toby crap on ezra, “oh aria, I was only doing this for your protection”. NO NO, I will definitely not take their shiz if they do that! I want ezra to be evil, he doesnt have to be head A, but as long as hes part of the opperation ill be a happy camper…oh and deadmama drama has got to go, it has to be one of the worst sub-plots carried out on the show, it sounds horrible but toby I don’t care if your mama died, even spencer looks irritated and bored of this plot. But for realz ever since season 3 started this show has really gone down hill, like there’s always a couple of juicy episodes here and there but it’s not the same as the first two seasons. The beginning was easy and less convoluted to follow, now I feel lile its so complicated, that the writers don’t even know what’s going on half the time. Does anyone else notice that the girls are so snippy with each other lately, they always seem so angry and so snarky, like the way pll portrays friendships are so unrealistic at times. AND IM DONE! (Felt good to get it off my chest)

    • Default avatar Recap Everything January 8th, 2014 / Wednesday

      omg is Ezra not Master A? If so, I hope in every season finale, they keep revealing there’s an even bigger and badder mastermind behind The A Team. <3

      DEADMAMA HAS GOTTA GO. GOT2GO. And lmao yes, Spencer totally hates this storyline too, so that's why she secretly sabotaged it.

      GURL IKWYM. Season 1 of PLL was top-notch, and now it's like *lol hot mess* but I still like it anyway~

  5. Default avatar ash January 8th, 2014 / Wednesday

    Aria girl control yourself!!!! D:
    I think we all knew it was heading in that direction lol. I feel conflicted cause ezria scenes are awful but jake and aria just aren’t compatible. That earth worm line make me crack up!
    I think everyone on this show has teleportation skills now. I mean, Cece was literally five feet away from them and no one saw her get up? So many plot holes omg but I love it anyway
    Thanks for posting :)

    • Default avatar Recap Everything January 8th, 2014 / Wednesday

      lol aria, she never fails to make me laugh with her ridiculous antics. Yeah let’s face it, we all know this ~*EZRIA KISS*~ was gonna happen down the line, but I just find it funny that she was so nonchalant about the whole thing. *suddenly kisses Ezra* … *immediately goes back to conversation*

      ~~~o o~~~ <-- Ezria in their earthworm forms. I have no idea if CeCe is alive, dead, teleported away or whatever. Her character has just been so random as hell this season. *lol* Thanks for reading :)

  6. Default avatar Anonymous January 8th, 2014 / Wednesday

    I give up with this show im done help me
    Emily really needs to get it together geez
    Im looking forward to the SHOCKING Ali is aliv reveal coming soon to RecapEverything ;)

    • Default avatar Recap Everything January 8th, 2014 / Wednesday

      WHAT? Is Alison DiLaurentis alive!?!? When did this happen!? Why haven’t they mentioned it on the show yet!? O_O

  7. Default avatar Socially Awkward January 9th, 2014 / Thursday

    Is no one going to comment on how Emily literally woke up in a conveyor belt? Like, I get she might pass out pretty quickly (one shot wonder!!) but seriously? Like…the hell girlfriend, get your ish together! Ain’t nobody got time to be trafficked like that.

    • Default avatar Recap Everything January 9th, 2014 / Thursday

      lol @ everything about Emily’s abduction was random as hell. She was like la dee la, look at Aria club into that bo- *suddenly ends up on a conveyor belt inches to her death* I think the whiplash from her magical teleportation must have caught Emily off-guard so that’s why she is in such a daze~

  8. Default avatar RE Fan January 9th, 2014 / Thursday

    Am I the only one on here that thinks the dead mama storyline is brilliantly written and was beautifully acted?
    – SAID NO ONE EVER!!!!!!!!
    And omg the caption of Jake yawning! HAHA! Well done gurrl, my mind so went there but I would never dare put it on paper like you! As for Aria’s literary interests.. LOLOLOLOL that gurl probably thinks Twilight is the best book ever written
    And PLL, please, can people’s bodies remain the same location after they have been pwnt? Thank you.
    Unfortunately, the only time I can ever give up on this show is when they come up with a decent explanation to wtf shana is doing all the time, which apparently seems to be far far away.

    • Default avatar Recap Everything January 10th, 2014 / Friday

      bwhaha all the DEADMAMA bashing gives me so much life~~

      Jake totally set himself up in that compromising position. And I am the only one crass and juvenile enough to make a lot of these jokes, but that’s what makes Recap Everything so Recap Everything. :D

      I love that dead bodies can just get up and walk away every single time. It’s like *i don’t like this location for my last moments in life so imma get up and move*

      Shana is such a miscellaneous character that it is almost hilarious. They just drop some random bitch into all these storylines and expect her to fill out the gaps.

  9. Default avatar anonymous January 9th, 2014 / Thursday

    i dont understand how A got emily in the coffin… its not like she could have been knocked out or drugged in broad daylight. someone would have seen, and if she wasnt drugged then she would have remembered. confused?
    Btw.. if this is what ezra does in his spare time in between drinking in his crappy apartment, then he has even less of a life than i thought.

    • Default avatar Recap Everything January 10th, 2014 / Friday

      I bet tree was Emily’s abduction had *audience participation* and A told all of them to join in on the fun.

      Ezra’s life is a total pathetic mess, but what else is new amirite?

  10. Default avatar HOC January 10th, 2014 / Friday

    LOL Aria went Xena Warrior princess on Cece, i guess thats normal after 4 seasons of dressing like an amazon warrior.


    Are you going to recap Ravenswood? That show is so awful and ridiculous that deserves to be mocked at till the day of its inminent cancelation.

    • Default avatar Recap Everything January 10th, 2014 / Friday

      lmao I would love if Aria became like a MMA fighter or a wrestler as her future career. Writer Aria, Photographer Aria OR Fighter Aria? That should be a poll.

      I will be recalling Ravenswood! I should be caught up to PLL weekends by this week and then I can start dishing the dirt on Ravenswood. SPOILER ALERT: that show is not only bad, but it is soooo boring too. There was like one decent episode out of six so far. Needless to say, the recaps are gonna be a huge bitchfest from yours truly.

  11. Default avatar nikki January 11th, 2014 / Saturday

    re: ezra’s obsessive bank statements. hello?! do you recall seasons 2 and 3 when A was spending money out of control. i mean i guess it was mona buying the cashmere sweaters and the cupcakes and the pawn shop diamond ring and oh yeah, my favorite, tory burch boots… A used to buy more and more *expensive* props all the time. or was that mona channeling big A’s account? its so confusing, and the sad part is, the writers are probably less aware of the conflict than i am and there will be no real satisfying answer. its not fair! i believed. I was a believer! I believed there would be a grand denoument. Basically, I believed all their pretty Little Lies! So bitter!

  12. Default avatar Anonymous January 11th, 2014 / Saturday

    I really hope Aria is head A. She is never involved in a relevant plot, all she does is make out with her teacherS. Also, if EzrA is really evil (and he better be!!!), then making Aria part of the A team is really the only option the writers have if they don’t want the Ezria shippers to kill them.

    • Default avatar Anonymous January 11th, 2014 / Saturday

      I don’t ship Ezria, I just want Aria to actually have a good storyline.

    • Default avatar HOC January 12th, 2014 / Sunday

      Aria is way too dumb to be part of the A team, let alone big A.

    • Default avatar Anonymous January 13th, 2014 / Monday

      Oh I totally agree. She’s an idiot. But all the Ezria fans are gonna want their couple back together, so the writers are probably gonna make Aria A (even tho she could never pull that off. Lol oh Aria…

  13. Default avatar spobAy January 11th, 2014 / Saturday

    Why were people so shocked about this?? A promo was released like a week before the episode giving it away, AND EzrA is a creepy pedophile teacher. It makes a ton of sense. Toby being A didn’t really make much sense, and that’s why I’m glad they did the whole protection storyline, because he and Spencer are one of the only couples I actually like. But Toby really needs a better storyline than deadmamma. Like if spoby was on the A team together the whole time. I kinda wish both of them had been trolling everyone the whole time and were evil. #spobAy That’s what I think they’ll do with Ezria. Maybe that will make them mildly interesting *Not an Ezria endorsement ;)*

  14. Default avatar DarkAngel January 11th, 2014 / Saturday

    Ezra reminds me of an angry muppet baby. But they better not take the Ezra reveal back. Or I will go all A on the writers.

    Before the EzrA reveal I thought of Ezra as a pathetic loser with no life, after the reveal he’s still a pathetic loser with no life. So he better at least become an interesting pathetic loser with no life.

    Man, are the PLL’s dumb. It’s no wonder that Alison didn’t tell them about her psycho stalker, if she did EzaA would’ve killed her within the week. But I love the fake out of Aria in DANGER. Only for them to be like just kidding! It’s Emily again like always. Why does Ezra hate Emily so much? I guess it’s because Alison loves Emily more than him.

    If we have Queen Mona and Queen Jenna working together, we need Queen Alison to join them to complete the Holy Trinity, so they can kill Ezra once and for all and take over the world.

    • Default avatar Anonymous January 13th, 2014 / Monday

      Yessss! We need the holy trinity!!!!!! Die Ezra DIEEEE!!!!!!!

    Can’t wait to see what comments you make about the Halloween episode, it was absolute shit in my opinion. If I wanted to watch shitty Ravenswood I would so don’t force it down my throat in what is supposed to be one of the best episodes of the season kthanks Marlene King. I quite enjoyed the winter premiere though and am cautiously optimistic about the rest of the season, I think.

    • Default avatar Anonymous January 13th, 2014 / Monday

      I totally agree with you. The Halloween episode is supposed to be one of the best ones every season. This year it was an hour long commercial for Ravenswood. Which sucks. I feel bad for Ali having to reveal herself in *that episode*
      I think that’s why the writers did it though, because Ali is the only reason people would keep watching that shit.

    • Default avatar rebekah January 21st, 2014 / Tuesday

      I know, the Ali reveal was actually quite well done in my opinion so it’s a shame that such a crucial, game-changing scene had to appear in the worst episode of the entire series, lol

  16. Default avatar kate January 14th, 2014 / Tuesday

    The writers have said big A / master A won’t be revealed until the series finale and the girl in the black veil in the S4 premiere is “endgame”. So whatev Ezra isn’t doing he isn’t big A which is kind of obvious they aren’t going to reveal big A this soon

    When I was watching this I was just like ‘Seriously Liars??? Seriously?’. Emily disappeared in daylight in the middle of the magic show and then no one decided to check if CeCe was really dead? They just decided to all turn their backs on her? Bitch please!

    Yay for Ali though.

    • Default avatar Happs May 2nd, 2014 / Friday

      Also, Aria’s fight with CeCe in this is kickass

    Keep your terrific work on! Congrats for the page!
