    This is one of the best you’ve done in a while, some of the comments nearly had me crying!
    Everything about Hanna and Mona = spot on, your description of Zoe and Emily’s scene was hilarious, I did not even notice Mama Hastings’s face until you pointed but I can’t stop laughing now omg and Aria, what the fuck are you wearing?!
    And Toby has made me so sad this season, he’s always been my favourite male character of the show but his storyline seriously sucks this season. I haven’t given up hope on them making him interesting again in 4B…

    • Default avatar rebekah October 15th, 2013 / Tuesday

      Oh, and the edit of Karate Jake and Kung Fu Panda – priceless.

    • Default avatar Recap Everything October 15th, 2013 / Tuesday

      tyty gurl~ I don’t even know what to think about Hanna and Mona’s scenes, they are so damn bizarre. XD Confessing to Detective Wilden’s death is already lulzy enough,but Mona playing along with her just makes it even funnier.

      lmao I love Zoe if only because she was so desperate and so transparent and so horny all rolled up into one. I ~*saw through*~ that bitch right away. Of course, Emily continues to be oblivious even though Zoe was hitting on her hardcore. :D

      Aria has MUTILIATED SHOULDERS when she was wearing that comic book dress, it was seriously freaking me out. O_O

      The dead mama storyline, man. it is killing Toby’s character and even a little bit of Spencer’s character by association. How many more victims will the Mama Cavanaugh black hole of doom claim!? I want to like Toby again too, but they really need to rethink and retool that dead mama angst in 4B. :(

      I made that photoshop of Karate Jake and Karate Jake just out of the blue. I was like…oh, this screenshot looks like it could use a little bit of panda in it. *lol*

    I read this at my university library. I was kicked out.

    • Default avatar Recap Everything October 15th, 2013 / Tuesday

      Getting kicked out? Gurrrrl, that is so Cece Drake of you~ lolz

  3. Default avatar new ArrivAl October 15th, 2013 / Tuesday

    Mona is my new idol.

    • Default avatar Recap Everything October 15th, 2013 / Tuesday

      Every sunday, we shall worship at the church of Mona Vanderwaal.

  4. Default avatar ash October 15th, 2013 / Tuesday

    oh gosh, I was already laughing by the first line. Hanna’s bad decisions just won’t stop. And Mona’s face when she made the confession was so twisted and creepy and amazing.
    Emily continues to be completely oblivious to people flirting with her, lol. Also, I can normally ignore the outfits on this show, but’s Aria’s was just. too. much. The poofy shoulders, why?? D: On a semi related note, I saw someone in my class today wearing one of those missing shoulder shirts and was instantly distracted by thinking of all the comments you’ve made about them in your recaps.
    This was great :)

    • Default avatar Recap Everything October 16th, 2013 / Wednesday

      Each and every one of Mona’s EVULFACE is more amazing than the next. Her actress has those facial expressions completely nailed down.

      Emily is so oblivious lol~ I love that she’s just giggling and batting her eyelashes without noticing there’s drool coming out of Zoe’s mouth.

      Aria’s outfits are always just. too. much. but this dress of hers just takes the biscuit. Those shoulders make her look like she’s in a perpetual shrug. XD

      Every time I notice someone wearing one of dem missing shoulder shirts IRL, I’m just like GURRRRRRL *judging u*

    Peter Hastings impregnated the next door neighbor… Let Veronica have her fun! haha

    • Default avatar Recap Everything October 16th, 2013 / Wednesday

      Heh heh, that is true, we can consider this as Veronica’s ~*hall pass*~. :D The intern looks like a young Papa Hastings in some parts too, so I geddit gurl~

  6. Default avatar George October 15th, 2013 / Tuesday

    OH MY GOD, SIMMER DOWN ZOE. Most people just say “Hello!” or “How are you?” as a greeting! I was surprised Zoe didn’t drop down on her knees and start licking Emily’s clitoris on the spot, because you know this desperate ho was ready to do it on a moment’s notice.

    AHAHHAHA holy shit! that’s the best one

  7. Default avatar HOC October 15th, 2013 / Tuesday

    WTF!!! why there is no mention of Aria wearing that hideous dress in the first few scenes. I mean it was like “heres comes the court jester”…seuriosly, its the ugliest thing i’ve ever seen.

    FYI my native language is not english so excuse me if my writing makes no sense

  8. Default avatar DarkAngel October 15th, 2013 / Tuesday

    I just love how descriptive Jenna and Mona are in their storytelling. I remember Jenna telling the girls about picking up Emily and she’s like “Dead of night, edge of town” or something. And Mona describes what the freaking lake smells like. And we’re supposed to believe that Ezra and Aria are the tortured writers.

    I think Mona’s lying lessons actually convinced Hanna that she did kill Wilden. She was probably mega confused when Mona confessed.

    I think I missed most of what happened on this ep because I was trying to wrap my mind around what the fuck Aria was wearing. Even Karate Jake’s arms couldn’t snap me out of it.

    As for the Rosewood Fight Club, I think everyone is in it except the Liars. It’s town full of pedo serial killers so of course they are the ones that learn how to knock people unconscious.

  9. Default avatar don't take away his nuts! October 15th, 2013 / Tuesday

    Lol, love your commentary on the insidious 2 cameo.

  10. Default avatar Anon October 16th, 2013 / Wednesday

    Jake is pretty much the Riley Finn of PLL, there’s one for every show.

  11. Default avatar Anon October 17th, 2013 / Thursday

    When. Are you posting the summer finale recap?

  12. Default avatar Anonymous October 19th, 2013 / Saturday

    Hey can you please do a recap of Glee 5×03? it would mean a lot to me and other finn/cory fans

  13. Default avatar nikki October 21st, 2013 / Monday

    Because of you, every time I see a seemingly doomed relationship on a TV sitcom, I say something along the lines of “I wonder which TV network will be picking him up next.” Like when Jackson fake died on Grey’s Anatomy and then came back, I was like, guess ABC won’t be picking him up after all. I have been completely sucked in by your Caleb in Ravenswood references, and now that 4th wall has been shattered forever! Thanks a lot!

  14. Default avatar nikki October 21st, 2013 / Monday

    and omg, how you saw that boner is beyond me…maybe he caught a glimpse of under hanna’s shirt from that perspective on the ground? and also, mama hastings top being unbottoned. intense.

    HAHAHAA!!! This recap, I like it. ANOTHER!

  25. Default avatar RE Fan December 30th, 2013 / Monday

    Your vacation has ran far too long!

  26. Default avatar Mona is a QUEEN January 1st, 2014 / Wednesday

    Mona’s smirk at the end MADE this episode. Oh my god that bitch is so cray cray and I LOVE IT! Seriously, Janel is the best actress on this show besides Troian! We need more Mona!

    • Default avatar Abby January 20th, 2014 / Monday

      I think Janel even trumps Troian. She’s so SO good, and Mona is my favorite character on the show.

    • Default avatar Recap Everything January 23rd, 2014 / Thursday

      I am inclined to agree! Janel seriously delivers in every scene, she’s a goddess, I love her!

  27. Default avatar Nonny February 12th, 2014 / Wednesday

    This is going to sound stalker-ish, but those colour pencils in Hanna’s room… pretty sure Spencer has the same kind too in her room. I was fascinated by the chaos Spencer called her table in Season 1.

    • Default avatar Happs May 1st, 2014 / Thursday

      Bit late but that is Spencer’s room she’s in. She ran upstairs after Veronica explained Ashley wasn’t getting bail.

  28. Default avatar no March 27th, 2014 / Thursday

    Has nobody noticed that in the scene where Aria and Jake are both watching tv, the stuff they see while Aria is switching channels are all about the crimes A did? There was a channel that featured a bee (mama montgomery, duh), then the next one was a train (halloween!). I forgot the other ones but yeah.

  29. Default avatar Leese July 3rd, 2014 / Thursday

    Did anyone else notice that Spencer was dressed like a Gryffindor this episode?

  30. Default avatar Jane October 8th, 2014 / Wednesday

    LOVE LOVE LOVE your recaps :).
    “Caleb: Hanna doesn’t move on. She goes right through. Don’t you, Mona?”
    Caleb was talking about how -A “went through” Emily’s house with a car :).

    Re: Kung-fu Panda – for a while I thought I missed it in a show and that’s actually some advertisement for Jakes “fighting & making-out” school :).

    Re: Aria’s comic book jacket – oooh, those shoulder pads would be perfect for Alison in season 5 LOL.
