    :D :D :D :D :D :D

    THANK YOU!! For doing this lovely recap. It got some chuckles out of me as usual.

    5×25 was my favourite episode out of the entire show, so I’m glad you gave it an A rating. I love Mona and Spencer teaming up, the two of them working together give me life.

    I was seriously loling at hoq everyone but Spencer was dashing to the fence and she was the only one who took the time to notice it was electric.

    Pleaseeeee do more of these soon!

      :D :D :D :D :D :D

      This finale was SO bizarre and I thoroughly enjoyed it even though nothing (Ezra: “NUTHIN!”) made sense. I was watching with a slack-jawed fascination throughout the whole thing.

      The pretty little liars almost getting electrocuted in end was hilarious. They’re like moths flocking towards the nearest flashing light. WE’RE FINALLY FREEEEE-*zaps*

      I’m already working on the 5×06 recap, but that episode doesn’t inspire me a lot so it’s hard to focus~~~ It will be up soon-ish though!

    OMG i still can’t believe how contrived this isht has become. This is beyond ridiculous, my head hurts when i think of the logistics, resources and technicall skills necessary to pull this dollhouse nonsense.

    And mona is Alive?… Give me a fucking break.

    Glad to see you back though.

    • Default avatar Recap Everything March 29th, 2015 / Sunday

      LOL~ I always tell myself to shut off my brain so I can enjoy this show more, but the stupidity and the contrived plots sometimes make it so hard for me not to scream out loud. ARRRRRRGAHGAHGAHGAH. *punches a wall*

      Seriously rolling my eyes at Mona being alive. Remember when they showed us her dead corpse in the car trunk? This show is so full of shit sometimes lol.

    • Default avatar Julia March 30th, 2015 / Monday

      Maybe A used that drug from Romeo and Juliette on her to make her appear dead?

  3. Default avatar Alex March 29th, 2015 / Sunday

    YOU’RE BACK OMG THANK THA LORD. You’ve been missed. I loved this finale, it finally went to the places I’ve wanted it to go for years now (aka fucked up). I’m still sticking with my theory that Wren is A, and Melissa is Black Veil/ the real Red Coat/ Oprah. YOU HEARD IT HERE FIRST. Also, kudos for the Maze Runner shoutout, Dylan continues to be bae *cough cough do your Teen Wolf recaps again gurl cough* ILYSM don’t leave us again <3

    • Default avatar Recap Everything March 30th, 2015 / Monday

      *sends anonymous text message to u* I’m back, bitches. Miss me? <3 -A

      The finale was so fucked up, more so than anything that PLL has done before. When Mona started combing her hair in that gas mask, I was like WTFFFFFFFFDISSHOW. I mean, sure, we still got zero answers or explanations about anything, but at least they took us on a crazy ride.

      I dunno what my A theories are! I'm inclined to believe that Melissa is definitely an accomplice of some sort tho. Her confession earlier this season just barely scratched the surface other crazy.

      Mr. O'Brien continues to be amazing starring in TV, movies, and my fantasies. WHAT IS TEEN WOLF? *loljk* I haven't watched the show lately, but I steered far away from spoilers so that I can get a fresh perspective when I recap the show again out of the blue.

    GURLLL~~ THANK GOD YOU ARE BACK! I have missed you and your hilarious recaps so much! This season has repeatedly had me going WTF as well, and I can’t wait to see if you had the same reactions as me! As for this recap, I totally agree with you on the Andrew thing. I really liked the thing he had going with Aria. He was a nice guy AND age appropriate. I really liked the actor (and his abs!) so I was glad they finally found a more fitting role for him! But how am I supposed to fantasize about those magnificent abs if they’re going to be covered up with a black hoodie? :( I also think that Andrew hasn’t played a big enough part on this show to be A! And if he is Charles, it doesn’t many any sense (although this is PLL). Jason is 7 years older than Andrew, so how can they be twins? And Andrew would be Spencer’s half brother, so that would make his crush really disturbing/creepy. I feel like Charles has to be someone Melissa’s age- a guy she hasn’t dated.

      GURRRRRRL. There are some hilarious subplots in a lot of episodes this season that I am itching to recap about, but first I have to trudge through the boring filler first. :\ Somebody help me give a damn about that nobody bitch Bethany Young omggggg. (Yes, I consider her the biggest filler character ever lol)

      Andrew is Jason’s long lost twin brother separated at birth in the ~cryogenic pods~ ZOMG, that explains the age difference! I didn’t mind him being Aria’s new love interest since he’s a step up from Jason, but I don’t know if I am ready for him to turn evilz. I dunno, maybe he will take a bullet for Aria next second and he’ll automatically turn into a good guy again~~~

      Good luck finding a guy that Melissa hasn’t dated yet lolz~ I would not be surprised if Spencer hooked up with her half-brother though, she certainly seems *tempted* by Jason and gave him a couple of longing gazes in the past. ;O

      If some of the episodes are too boring for you to recap, feel free to skip them! I think we all just want new recaps- we’ve missed you, gurl! Besides, your best recaps are the ones on the episodes with hilarious subplots, so please recap the Jason/Ashley love affair ASAP! I’ve been going crazy waiting for your opinion on that one! You could also go back to season 4! I’d love your take on the black and white episode and the amazing ~ARIA RAMPAGE~ when she finds out about Ezra’s stupid book.

    • Default avatar JOHN April 18th, 2015 / Saturday

      Seconding Kathryn! Skip the boring ones if they make it tough for you to continue. We just really want new recaps T_T.

      If anything you could dedicate a paragraph about a boring ep in at the beginning of a review of a more interesting one.

    • Default avatar Recap Everything April 23rd, 2015 / Thursday

      That’s actually a great idea I never considered? *lol* I’m so obsessed with recapping this show in a ~*chronological*~ order even though I’m obviously failing and I’ve been staring at a partially completed S5E06 recap for weeks. T_T

      SPOILER ALERT: I unabashedly love the Jason x Mama Marin whoremance and genuinely believe it is one of the Top Three storylines in Season 5. <3 Okay, I'm just kidding, it's definitely the TOP ONE storyline of the season. *lol*

    • Default avatar Anonymous May 6th, 2015 / Wednesday

      We miss you sooooooo much! If that 5×06 recap is too difficult to complete, then forget about it and make fun of Aria “volunteering” at a mental institution in the next episode *lol*. I know you will have a TON to say about Big Rhonda vs. Aria, and now I want to hear your complaints about that Bethany bitch! I hope you knock some new ones out before season six because I know those episodes are gonna be ~cray~!

  5. Default avatar JOHN March 31st, 2015 / Tuesday

    So… I was the only one who thought Mona was really dead and was genuinely surprised when she was revealed? :'(

    Now that you’ve recapped the Season finale though, will it dampen your review of the mid-season finale? Will you have to type “dead” in quotes all the time up to 5×24? xD

    • Default avatar Recap Everything April 1st, 2015 / Wednesday

      It’s okay, I seem to be the only one who thinks Andrew could actually be A, so I know how you feel bruh~

      I think I might start putting quotation marks every time I use the word dead in ALL of my PLL recaps. Is Ian actually “dead”? Is Garrett “dead”? Is Toby’s mom “dead” too? WHO KNOWS!

    “You might think the girls would make a practical escape and kick off their heels before running away, but this is Pretty Little Liars and the motto is to never sacrifice your fashion for your safety! If we’re gonna die in this place, then we’re gonna die with our goddamn stilettos on!”

    I would have been let down if they weren’t. It’s not fun watching them run for their lives unless there’s glitter shimmering from their eyes and glam dresses flowing in the wind. I thought their makeup was the best part of this whole damn episode. Also I was thinking Maze Runner too before you mentioned it – I just read it for first time three days ago!!! Although maybe that’s what we were supposed to be thinking or what the writers were already thinking. Honestly, the writers waste soooo much potential this show has. But where they go right is:
    1) Mona’s a) attitude and b) machinations
    2) you said it best – A’s attention to detail. Remember when she laid out all the real life Clue pieces at the end of one episode? Those doll staged pictures took the cake.
    3) Hanna’s interpersonal wisdom
    4) Mama Montgomery and Grandma Marin
    5) Jake Dilaurentis’ hot body

    Everything else is wasted without continuity of actors and plot lines between episodes. Also, Ezra has never stopped giving me the creeps from the very first episode – for that he must be A.

    • Default avatar Recap Everything April 23rd, 2015 / Thursday

      Yup, half the fun of Pretty Little Liars is watching these girls be so ~*pretty*~ and ~*glam*~ even when their lives are on the brink of ending. I knew it wouldn’t be a true PLL finale if they were stuck in orange jumpsuits for the whole episode, so I’m glad the writers made up a contrived reason to give them a fabulous wardrobe change.

      I have a lot of opinions on The Maze Runner series! Newt and Minho are my inspiration. <3 Also, without giving away spoilers, Teresa almost acts like she's a Pretty Little Liars reject. I can totally envision her characters fitting right in as part of the PLL universe.

      This show gets a lot of things wrong, but they redeem themselves by getting certain aspects soooooo right. Mona is basically perfection no matter what she does or says. One perfectly timed *imma cut a bitch* look from her and I'm like *lolded*.

  7. Default avatar I don't have a name May 8th, 2015 / Friday

    When will we get another recap? Please, let it be soon, we need it :). I’m looking for your comment about Toby’s saccrifices he had to do to be a cop. ( You know, Like 2 days in police academy, BUZZCUT, him being dick to Spencer and stuff :)). And his heroic (lol I wrote heroin accidentaly, *plot twist*, Toby will be so devastated about Spencer being abducted, he’ll became heroin addict :D) choice that he’ll give Tanner an ultimatum, either she’ll accept him being BF with Spencer (A.k.A. person Tanner was convinced is involved in Mona’s “death”) or he’ll QUIT!!! :O. Like Tanner would care about his “one-week-cop sorry ass” lol.

    I thought you were kidding about overzealous PLL fans thinking that the product number on the chair was a clue. Nope. Yesterday I saw a theory that had somehow deciphered that it meant something like “bitches die in a fire.” *lol* Some people have too much time on their hands!

    • Default avatar JOHN May 10th, 2015 / Sunday


      When I see fans over analyze every little thing like this I tend to get some good laughs :’) xD

      I’m pretty sure the product number was just there to prove to Spencer she wasn’t in her real room.

    • Default avatar Recap Everything May 10th, 2015 / Sunday

      PLL fans are so obsessed dedicated that it’s scary amazing. <3

  9. Default avatar Anonymous May 20th, 2015 / Wednesday

    I thought you broke out of prison!

  10. Default avatar Anonymous May 30th, 2015 / Saturday

    I hope you come back soon and recap the season six premiere once it airs!

  11. Default avatar R.E FC June 1st, 2015 / Monday

    I miss you so much. Hope you’re back soon! .____. Season 6 premier is just tomorrow!
