Speaking of last Tuesday’s episode 7x15 “In The Eye Abides The Heart” directed by Troian (which i must say was amazing bravo to her!!) there are many things in this episode that are worth discussing..
Since everyone is talking about THAT scene with Wren and “Spencer” and of course Ezra in the airport (which i must say i totally agree that was NOT Spencer) i have decided not to focus on that but on the scene where Hanna introduces Mona to the game.
One thing that strikes me about that scene is how strange Mona was acting around the game itself. I don’t know if it’s just me who picked up on it but i felt she was putting on an act for Hanna. Also she made a very interesting remark about it..
“Why build a dollhouse when you can turn the entire town into a dollhouse?” I don’t know about you but i could not help but get the vibe that Mona was referring to her own involvement with Charlotte’s dollhouse which would not shock us as there is plenty of clues that Mona was involved, not only in faking her death but in creating the dollhouse itself.
Throwback to this scene with Aria:
Anyway back to 7x15..
Overall this season i find Mona is acting unusual..
Mona is clearly acting suspicious in this scene but not in a creepy way it was like she was way too happy to see the game (which rings alarm bells to me) She was basically disappointed she didn’t make it herself.. or did she? The part where she took out her phone to take pictures of it just made me cringe! She was also able to tell Hanna certain information about the game like its batteries would run out when the game ends, which got her all sentimental (weird) and that it was handmade..with love..Not exactly information that could help Hanna to be honest.
Also when Hanna begged Mona to help her beat the game and Mona gave this big “emotional” speech about how they were dealing with an addict (cough herself) and playing with lives (something she’s been doing since the start) She exclaimed that she only reason she wasn’t freaked out by it was because a tiny little Mona wasn’t on it.
Yet it only took for Hanna to convince her that she would beat it, for her to agree to play the game.
Mona will help the girls beat the game in 7x17 “Emily teams up with Mona as she makes inroads in the game”
But in Rosewood not all help is genuine!
Mona has proven that already because she was A before.. and i could write a whole other post about how she is encouraging Hanna’s fashion career with the senator’s daughter or whatever but yet Jenna ends up wearing the same dress..and next week’s promo Mona freaks out as Lucas has sold Hanna’s factory fashion business from under her etc..all obviously planned!
Mona is one of the characters on the show who you can never tell who’s side she is on..i mean season 5 she basically was anti Ali and co. and made an entire army. What changed? If she was apart of the Dollhouse then, that means everything since is an act and if she was able to pretend before why not now.
I don’t think Mona is A.D or will be our big bad but she is definitely more involved that we think.
It is also interesting to note how the episode is titled “In The Eye Abides The Heart” the same song Mona sang in 3x03 “The Kingdom Of The Blind” while in radley holding THE QUEEN OF HEARTS in her hand.
Melissa was TQOH on the Halloween Train and i like to think this clue is somehow connected to Melissa being A.D.
Also it is important to remember Mona was waiting for Melissa to arrive at one of her Mona army meetings back in season 5 which also included Lucas and Paige. How strange was it that this storyline was dropped suddenly?
(btw look at that face even Paige looks scared of her)
I would also like to add that i believe Mona, Jenna and Sydney were waiting for Melissa in this episode also back in season 5
Considering we just got a massive clue last week that Sydney is on the A Team you best believe that these bitches are working for A.D too!
“This is a podwer that when applied to the air causes ghosts to become visible,” Henry said.
Magnus tilted the jar of shining grains up to the lamp admiringly, and when Henry beamed in an encouraging fashion, Magnus removed the cork.
“It seems very fine to me,” he said, and on a whim he poured it upon his hand. It coated his brown skin, gloving one hand in shimmering luminescence. “And in addition to its practical uses, it would seem to work for cosmetic purposes. This podwer would make my very skin glimmer for eternity.”
Henry frowned. “Not eternity,” he said, but then he brightened. “But I could make you up another batch whenever you please!”
“I could shine at will!” Magnus grinned at Henry.

Comment: Now I lowkey hope Victor ft. Yuuri harem show up again because that part was too good… (Context is here)
“Yuuri, if you’re going to engage in kinky sex, keep it in the bedroom,” Mari grumbled as she walked past.
Yuuri dropped the grocery bags and ran so fast he practically Apparated into his room.
Dressed in a skimpy, copper bikini, his copy fluttered its eyelashes sultrily as it lounged in Viktor’s lap, bare skin pressed flush against him.
Viktor gazed at Yuuri with the saddest puppy eyes. “I just wanted to see how you’d look in it - ”
“Burst it,” said Yuuri, “Or I’ll do it myself.”
He couldn’t decide which he regretted more: introducing VIktor to that blasted wishing gum, or to the original Star Wars trilogy.
LESSONS IN LOVE
Comment: This was so sweet but the perv inside me insists on the sex like bunnies as a side fic, for fashion!!!
“Ah,” Yuuri’s head falls back, knocking a ball of yarn off the shelf.
Viktor chuckles, the vibrations sending jolts of electricity right down to his toes. “Hush, zaika,” he mumbles, and Yuuri wonders through the haze of desire how the Russian can speak with his mouth wrapped around his -
“Oh god,” Yuuri chokes as Viktor does that thing with his tongue, arching further into the heat, hands tugging at the silver strands beneath.
In response, Viktor groans in the filthiest way possible, and Yuuri can no longer tell right from left.
- at least, not until Guang Hong steps into the supplies room for, well, supplies.
The resulting screams are enough to ruin any kind of mood.
“We need rules, boss,” Leo states simply, holding the traumatized man in his arms, quelling the tremors with soothing strokes to his back. “You know, like, locking the supplies room if you’re going to be giving a BJ in it?”
“Or NOT giving a BJ in the supplies room,” Guang Hong wails.
“It has been the fifth time,” Leo agrees, deepening his strokes.
“It wasn’t always a BJ,” Viktor huffs indignantly. “I’m not a one-trick pony, much as zaika enjoys riding my - ”
