Aria in 7x15

So…

She showed ‘A.D.’ All of the girl’s cards.

She broke into Lucas Loft and stole that comic book?

She delivered it to a high school locker that must have like a false back or some shit…

Cause she earned her hoody in like 2 seconds after dropping off that comic book.

Do we think it’s strange that the drop off was at the high school of all places?

She FINALLY stood up for herself to Ezra, who was… hard to read in this episode.

And Lucy gave one of the most natural performances of her entire career in this episode. Whoever made the official call to go minimal on Lucy’s eye makeup this episode, definitely made the right call. It did a lot for capturing her turmoil.

The Alison We See is 100% The One Calling The Shots!

Okay! Alison purposefully ran in the opposite direction of Emily. That was 100% intentional. Notice how Alison suddenly “falls” and “wasn’t able to catch their face”. She says that immediately before Emily can even ask if she saw who it was… This is definitely going to end up being how Ali pretends that she lost the baby from the fall, but I’m sure she already got the abortion. That’s why she didn’t care to take the vitamins. Doesn’t it seem like A had Aria doing one A-related thing at the same exact time Ali was ambushed? Not to mention, A probably gave Aria strict instructions and told her to send the liars to the high school. Sounds like Alison used Aria to give herself an alibi so that it seems as though she couldn’t possibly have ruined the nursery. Don’t forget: Alison is a PUPPET MASTER–and the writers didn’t forget to remind us with the metaphor of the baby mobile. Meanwhile, I believe Alison used LUCAS to ambush her–therefore giving her even more of an alibi and an excuse for the loss of the baby. Even look back at the moment when the liars+Ali confront Lucas in the loft. In this scene, Alison always seems to know something and is always asking the questions to get the answers. I think Alison and Lucas are working together. They have planned all of this out. Even after that conversation Lucas has with Hanna, I still felt as though Lucas was only trying to make himself innocent by forcing Hanna to feel guilty for 1.) not loving him back; and 2.) making him lose all of his money for investing in her. Don’t let the sob story fool you. Now the question is: why is Lucas working with ALI?–the person that tortured him?? Maybe the Ali is see is not the real Ali. We all know of the very real possibility of an Alison twin. It would bring the whole show full circle to where it all began–with Sara Shepard’s books. I personally think that Alison’s twin could have taken her place after she was forced to run away. But who is the twin that we see? I’m guessing either Bethany or Charles. I don’t think Cece’s story is credible nor true. Cece was only covering for “Alison” (the twin). I think Charles is Alison’s biological twin brother who transitioned into an identical form of his twin, Alison. I think that might be who we are seeing today and who is pulling the strings. Real Alison might still be hiding, or she might possibly be the actual body that was found in the grave. Or that part of this theory could be totally wrong, and her twin could just be Bethany–or possibly she might not even have a twin. But it would help make Lucas’s involvement make sense; He could be helping out his old friend Charles seek revenge on those that have wronged them, or he could be in love with Charles like the boy in the comic is with the female heroine that protects him. REGARDLESS, the Alison we see now (whether this person be the real Ali or a twin of sorts) is definitely pulling the strings behind the scenes. It was just thrust in our faces tonight. *Side Note: Tonight’s episode had such a different feeling than others. I’m not sure what it was, but it just felt more intense and mature. I really liked it though.

7x18. More mystery solving please!

The liars get their places searched and phones confiscated by Tanner who is now in charge as Marco has excused himself.

Aria get a caught as black hoodie by the liars and is banished from the group

Spencer changes her outfits a lot and seduces Toby. Spencer twin vibes ? A little but it isn’t my favorite theory. This bugged me because he’s been a widower for less than a month. Just..no.

Emison finally went to the kissing rock as a couple.

Haleb got married

Mona has the game and I’m sure she will be the one to figure out who A.D is

Everyone except Mona gets laid in a montage style scene

The game is now CHOOSE or LOSE. One must plea for the others to go free.

Any one else think Alisons personality is missing ? She was the center of the mystery that started those whole show and now she’s part of the story with the Emison baby but that’s it. I think I compare her to flashback Ali who had a personality that stood out. Alison seems like a background character now. Just my opinion ! I know many may not agree.

A.D likes Aria.  Major Jason vibes only because of this! And they mentioned Ali went to see him in NY

I hate that I watch promos and read spoilers but I do. The promos give away all the big stuff. I already know what happens with Aria and cops for example.

There’s a lot of parallels for Mary and Spencer IF There’s a Spencer Twin. Seducing the twins man..Mary slept with Peter and it’s possible Spencer twin slept with Toby.

2 episodes left and we don’t have much new info. None at all on A.D.  newest fact is aria once filled out a report on Ezra. All original ships are coming together. I dislike how all of them are coming together, Emison is together because of this baby born out of a strange psycho ok with rape. Ali was unconscious and inseminated. That’s insanely rapey! I’m just floored that it’s not being called that. Don’t get me wrong, those two are adorable as fuck together. Wicked chemistry and some crazy history, there’s love but this baby isn’t some happy accident. I wish they had been flirting this whole season and finally gotten together or something. My rant on this is done now.

Other ships they railroaded together..haleb who are now married with no jobs and lucas loft to live in ?! Where is Lucas living ?! Isn’t he broke? Haleb is just meh because they broke up Spaleb and hurt Spencer. I have always been anti Ezria so seeing Aria tell Ezra he’s fantastic and she was just angry was infuriating. Spoby is too soon. Yvonne died a few weeks ago right?

I’m disappointed we are not getting more mystery. The ships were never my favourite thing about the show I watch it for the mystery and I just hope the end is satisfying and that I’m going to rewatch these episodes and see things are clues one day that seem like nothing to me now. I hope to be floored. You know what they say though..hope breeds eternal misery.

I’m still for an Alison twin. It would come full circle. Alison as A. And the Alison we’ve seen with Emily is really the twin, possibly Bethany?   I think they will keep Emison so an Alison twin would make sense. Flashback Alison is A.D. The Alison that returned has always been Bethany the twin. We have seen A.D before but only in flashbacks.

Are the liars just giving up?no solving the mystery just give up and fuck once more and go to jail?
So...?

-Aria tells A.D. About the comic book.

-A.D. Makes Aria steal the comic book from Lucas’ loft, then drop it off in a high school locker.

-A.D. gets the comic book from the locker, puts in an envelope and mails it right back to the person they had it stolen from.

-A.D. Attaches a note to Lucas that if he wants to keep his friendship with Charles a secret, to meet them at the Radley.

-No one shows up at the Radley meeting.

-A.D. Or Charles (probably the same thing?) break back into the loft and steal the unfinished book?

Does that sound a little suspect to anyone else?

Also… am I the only one who doesn’t buy Lucas’ entire story?

Why would he be so afraid of the police finding out that he was friends with Charles/Charlotte?

I mean? Being friends with her doesn’t make it more likely that he killed her? And it’s not like (as far as dealing with the police goes) that being friends with Charlotte made anyone’s life worse?

I dunno man. This all felt really off. Just like the entire timeline of the writing of these books does.

I suppose it could just prove that it was just a test, to see if Aria could and would do it. Why else would A.D./Charles want the book, just to give it back to him?

Double standards much?
  • Aria leaves snookers and goes to Ezra's place where they hug and he comforts her
  • PLL fans: Oh my God Aria you sick at staking out at snookers. Hanna is missing and you're too busy with your love life. You should be ashamed.
  • Hanna leaves Noel Kahn tied up and goes to Lucas's loft and sleeps with Caleb
  • PLL fans: yes Haleb is rising. This scene is so hot. He's kissing her wounds

You know what was great about 7x15?

When Spencer decrees that when they search Lucas’ loft, they should search discreetly.

And then Emily and Hanna are like “hey nothing’s more discreet than talking loudly about how we are suspicious, as we dig through the boxes under your desk.”

THOUGHTS: Evil Emoji vs Previous ‘A’s

There’s been a lot of talk so far this season about how the new (not improved) shadowy texter is playing by “different rules” than the previous A’s.  And although I wouldn’t really say that any people who out you to your parents, put finger bones in your corset, run you over with a car, get you thrown in jail and then kidnap and imprison you in an underground torture bunker are playing by any specific set of rules, per se, it might lead to something if we do think about the ways in which Evil Emoji is acting in ways that are different from what we’ve previously seen from the big bAds.

1. EE has a clear objective.  Whereas Mona and Charlotte declared they were out for revenge / playing a game / wanting to avenge themselves because the Liars wronged them for various slights real and imagined - EE declares in their debut text message that they want to find out what the Liars know about Charlotte’s death.  But why?  So they can take revenge on the killer?  So they can turn the evidence over to the police?  (OR they are the police and want the liars to do all their illegal investigation?)  So they can swear fealty to their new overlord?    

2. EE is not nearly as omniscient as we’ve come to expect.  Things they’ve been aware of: Spencer having a little hit of mixed emotions when she sees Toby with the ring (observed by Bellman); Hanna getting ready to go to the police with her fancy lawyer; Emily selling her eggs; Hanna having erased the security footage; the back up footage going missing.  Things EE may or may not be aware of but has made no attempts to exploit yet:  Spencer being with Caleb; Aria writing Ezra’s new novel; Spencer’s Murder 101 term paper; Charlotte’s actual cause of death (strangulation) as given by the police.  Things EE has not been aware of: Aria suggesting they drop a fake drive; Caleb making a fake drive and giving it to Hanna; Caleb putting a video and virus on the fake drive; what the security footage shows; who killed Charlotte.

Aria and Hanna talk about the fake drop plan at Ashley’s house.  Caleb and Hanna discuss the fake drive in the Hastings barn.  Everyone discusses the footage / Aria leaving / Ezra maybe being a killer at the Montgomery house and Ezra’s apartment.  So we know several locations at least are not under constant surveillance.  

Interestingly, the things EE does know about - aside from the Toby ring sighting - were all discussed in the Loft of Lucas where Hanna is currently staying.  Worth noting: Emily and Hanna discuss Spaleb there, so if it’s really the Loft of Lucas and Listening In, EE knows about Spaleb and either doesn’t care about it or wants them to stay together.

Also, either EE does not know who killed Charlotte, or they killed Charlotte and are trying to make sure the Liars have no idea.  Why else send them on a wild goose chase for a missing 9 iron?  It’s like suggesting a wrong weapon in a game of Clue, you do it to see what someone else knows.  In this case, EE can basically clear Aria of serious wrong doing as she hops all over town getting her finger prints on every golf club in Rosewood.  If she did it, or if she knew for sure who did, she wouldn’t need to jump through all those hoops.  They could also be employing a similar strategy with the security footage - if Hanna tears up her Mom’s entire house trying to find it, that tells EE that Hanna herself did not steal it.

3. EE uses emojis.  This seems obvious, and kind of dumb, like the new stalker did not do any market testing about what is scary vs. clownish.  (Although clowns, very scary.  If a clown texted me, I would run.)  But it’s a significant difference between these messages and the old ones.  Does it mean EE is an older person who doesn’t understand technology?  Or does it mean EE has never received an actual A message in the past, and hasn’t sent one either - they have a basic unfamiliarity with how they look.  Alison has gotten threatening texts in the past.  Ezra certainly knows what those texts look and sound like.  Mona is a master in the art of cyber-samurai.  Melissa is a genuinely scary person, I think she would know better than to dilute the brand with pig faces.  So who then?  Sara Harvey?  Sabrina?  Lucas?  Dr. Rollins?  Jason?  Lorenzo?  Someone who knows the story, but not exactly how it works?   

Or is the emoji thing just a way to cast suspicion on Sara Harvey, in exactly the way it makes Spencer suspicious of her - it’s hard for her to type, emojis might be easier.  Which, this would maybe be valid if anyone believed Harvey can’t use her hands.  Anyone?  Anyone?  So it’s possible that we can write down “State of Harvey Hands” as another thing on the EE doesn’t know about list.

I made notes on the specific emojis, in case there was a pattern, but if there is, I’m not seeing it.  In which case, we can simply look at all the pictures to see if they might be clues to some other meaning.  (Note: we can’t actually look at them because I have no idea how to do screen grabs.  But I will describe them in great detail, I promise.)

You know who did it and I’m going to make you talk.  [Emoji: Horned skull of a red devil]

Could refer to: Shana swimming for the Red Devils, all the times they called Toby a devil during the first season, Mona dressed as a horned devil during the 6a finale, or could be a friendly sign off indicating you’re all going to hell.

I guess she is better than you.  He will never put a [Emoji: diamond ring] on your finger.

Could refer to: Toby’s engagement ring, explicitly.  Or Spencer pawning the ring Ian gave Melissa.  Hanna’s engagement ring.  Ella and Byron’s engagement.  Melissa’s engagement to Wren Kingston, ended when he was caught kissing Spencer.

When the [Emoji: Two pigs in cop hats] come calling you’d better not squeal about me.  [Emoji: Bomb with xx eyes] [Emoji: Broken heart]

Pigs could refer to: Pigs on the cupcakes A forced Hanna to eat before she confessed her eating disorder to Aria.  The Toby/Caleb/Ali/Ezra plot to get Alison out of the house and free to go be A-bait in the woods, wherein the call was coming from a doll in a pig mask.  Ali calling Paige “Pigskin.”  The pig in the trunk of Wilden’s car.  The fact that we’re calling cops pigs could also refer to the many awful cops Rosewood has employed: Wilden himself, Garrett, Holbrook, and Lorenzo all had very icky involvements with teenage girls. 

Bomb could refer to: the bomb that didn’t blow up Radley, engineered by Charlotte, defused by Spencer, electrocuted Harvey.  The explosion that blew up Toby and Jenna’s house.  The firecracker that originally blinded Jenna Thing.  Small explosion at the school caused by Lucas. 

Broken heart could refer to: an ex-lover of one of the Liars.  No shortage of those!  Or an unrequited love.  Top of that list right now: Lucas, Toby, Ezra, Alison.  But seriously, this real list would be one million miles long and chock full of sketchy ass names.  For Hanna, we’ve got: Sean, Travis, Caleb, Lucas, Mona, Wren, and Holbrook.  For Spencer: Ian, Wren, Andrew, Toby, Alex, Jonny, British Colin, and maybe a few others that I’ve blocked out.  For Aria: Ezra, Noel, Jake, Clark, Andrew, Jason, Holden, random dude at the bed and breakfast, and the douchebag who tried to slut shame her that one time.  For Emily we have: Ben, Toby, Maya, Samara, Paige, Talia, Shower Shark, and OG Ali.  We could include Alison on this list, but since she is not getting these texts (that we know of) I’m not going to.  But let’s keep everyone who’s made moves on more than one liar on the watch list.  That’s: Wren, Andrew, Caleb and Toby.  Oh heck, I’m going to include Ezra and Holbrook and Noel and Ian because they would all be on Alison’s list, too. 

Also, this one is kind of why you should not use emojis in your threat.  What is the threat saying, exactly.  You’d better not squeal on me or I will bomb your broken heart?  I will explode your relationship?  It’s clearly something like that, but to paraphrase Willow Rosenberg when she promised to bludgeon Riley to death with a shovel, a vague threatening text message is nobody’s friend.  

I get that drive or you get a [Emoji: broken heart] [Emoji: clock] is ticking.

See broken heart, above.  This is the second time we’ve seen the broken heart used.

Clock could refer to: It looks like an alarm clock, Hanna and her boo were just talking about oversleeping.  We also have moments in this same episode where we see Spencer using her space age Apple watch, a fairly prominent shot of the watch on Ali’s wrist, and Hanna eventually getting sacked for not arriving on time to have her boss spit gum into her hand.

4. EE doesn’t hand write notes to the Liars.  In fact, they’ve been phoning it in the whole time up until Emily gets the carton of freshly laid egg-threats.  Which has a paper tucked inside with what looks like a computer print out.  Is the magic so far gone?  Or would one of the Liars recognize EE’s writing / printing?  Or is this another sign that EE is guessing about the A game and how it works?

5. I don’t lurk in the shadows, I hide in plain sight.  This is the big one the show wants us to think about.  But it’s also the most doubtful.  You don’t wear hoodies, but you also aren’t exactly wearing a t-shirt that says “Hug Me, I’m Your Stalker.”  And they’re still wearing a mask of a face on their face, even if it is rubber instead of hand-crafted plaster made by the creepy woodsman.  One thing that it does seem to imply, though, is that the physical presence of EE is more important that it was for A.  Mona and Charlotte (and Ezra) worked tons of tech angles to keep tabs on the Liars.  Blue snarfing and therapist office bugging and making Hanna’s replacement phone record and transmit all conversations and hacking the GPS on Emily’s car.  EE seems far more low-fi, although it does seem pretty likely that there are listening devices in the Luxury Loft of Lucas, Likely in the Lamps.

6. EE is not as good with the tech side.  When Caleb’s virus starts causing havoc, they push a couple of keys and then resort to smashing some things to vent their feelings.  No counter typing, no trying to block anything.  No line of defense.     

Those are the main differences I’ve noted so far.  Any others I’ve missed?  Anyone who seems like a better or worse suspect based on all this? 

A Summary of 6x13 - The Gloves Are On (at least for Sara)

So Hanna, Spencer and Emily are getting spa treatments because being suspected for murder is really stressful. Aria is not there so I guess they took Alison’s dinner threats seriously.

Anyway, since she’s not there they can also question Aria and Ezra’s relationship, I mean it’s a few years too late but okay.

Oh, and Sara is there too because why not:)

Meanwhile Aria’s talking to Liam while looking like she’s about to perform on Eurovision next.

Liam however, unknowingly, supports the idea of Aria staying in Rosewood with Ezra. Poor Liam.

At the Brew Hanna meets Lucas who is now rich. But honestly though who isn’t?

As Emily goes to the drugstore so that Pam can go through her mail Hanna spots Aria and Ezra having lunch for some reason. Aria’s talking about how shocked she is by the content of Ezra’s book, so while Aria is having a déjà vu moment Ashley appears and tries to lengthen Ezra’s compulsive sobriety.

So, Emily’s sitting in her car and Pam is rushing towards her at the speed of all my responsibilities emerging.

They go having coffee (yes, coffee) while talking about her skipping school and going costume shopping.

Hanna though, after crashing Spencer’s interview, runs to Lucas’ loft to ask him to be her alibi despite the fact that he couldn’t even keep his hamster alive.

Later, Aria and Emily are sitting in Aria’s living room reading Ezra’s book. This is basically going to be Aria’s storyline for the rest of the season. A book.

Anyway, Aria is dismissing Emily’s suggestion that Ezra wrote the book about her.

I mean why would he do that?

Just saying, unless Nicole disappeared while she was out buying chickpeas this book is about you, Aria.

Meanwhile Spencer goes to see Hanna to ask her if she can take over her shopping cart and Hanna who says she’s okay with it is not really okay with it.

The next day Ezra and Aria are sitting on a bench talking about Ezra’s book. Again. I swear to god this is worse than the barrel storyline.

I guess Aria is just going to start writing his book for him now. This would be a great opportunity for payback but I doubt we’ll get that…

Later, Hanna and Emily are hanging out in Aria’s bedroom while Liam is giving them a striptease and when Hanna goes to throw away her junk food she finds out that Emily is not in fact sick but that she’s just been preparing her gift for Alison.

Back at Spencer’s barn Spencer tells Caleb how Sara was electrocuted and we all know that water and electricity don’t mix well.

Then Caleb says he always thought it was Sara who killed Charlotte because, really, who doesn’t know what Kimye is?

And then they sleep together lol.

Anyway, A is back! And he’s looking for uniforms so maybe Emily can help him out.

Ok, but why is Hanna still staying at Lucas’ loft?

Sincerely. If the fact that he was suspicious and cagey as hell didn’t bother her enough to leave…

Then feeling like she ruined his life on multiple levels should be enough to convince her to move back home or get an apartment of her own.

Where TF does Caleb even live? Does he also live at the loft now too?

If Lucas is guilty, they need to move their asses out of there. If Lucas is innocent, they need to stop taking advantage of him. Either way… I hope next week they’re talking about getting out of that Loft.
