7x12 review and thoughts
How is no one talking about the secret passageway on the game map?! They do no analysis of this board game at all!!!
“Her help is dead, his head rolled over your feet remember?” - Hanna
‘What about Sidney? ‘- ‘Oh please let’s not go there’ - Emily
‘Em you’ve already been there!’ - Spencer. Omg this made me laugh so hard
Emily is the one that wants out this time..interesting.
“I may have been the one driving this car but we have to be in this together ”- Hanna
I bet A.D didn’t know that the only new information being given this episode is to A.D! Obviously the game is insane and has a recording device, they know A has always stalked them, why do they talk right there? Why not ditch their phones and talk somewhere out in the open?
“Nicole Gordon was never his fiance, I am! ” - Aria. Oh Aria you wonderful crazy thing
Addison Derringer is not A. She probably got manipulated or bribed by Jenna, or another A minion, even the minions need minions in this A game.
Addison is just like Alison in high school, and Alison now.
I am loving Spencers dress and Arias’ hair!
I can’t believe Veronica still backs up Peter..it infuriates me.
“Wow, so only you and dad could appreciate the bitter irony of me checking into the same mental hospital where I was born ”- Spencer-
I really feel bad for Veronica, I do. She adopted a child who was born because her husband was cheating on her, she covered for his ass all these years and Spencer never felt like anything but a Hastings, I think Spencer is being pretty horrible to Veronica. I get that she hurting but she’s in her twenties not she isn’t a child. What did she want Veronica to do? Discuss the fact that Peter is a cheating bastard and that Spencer is the result of an affair?
So..does Hanna make her own clothes to wear? Hence the ‘you went through my closet!’
Does she sew them? Design and send them somewhere to get made? Does she buy the materials?
Emily benches Addison for missing a practice, Addison is pure attitude, not even looking up from her phone.
“My head was throbbing, listening to your rusty whistle wasn’t going to help” - Addison, reminding us of old Ali.
Alison is in pay attention to me mode…what if I have one like her..or me… She has not decided if she is keeping the baby
So are Spencer and Marco together?
Spencer tells Marco about Mary and shows the letter, changes one detail..she found the letter rather than she was given the letter after playing a crazy board game
Hold up…if the beading, the belt, the collar was Hanna’s bosses idea that Hanna took then what did Hanna design? A plain black dress with a tutu skirt?
Addison is a little psycho, she goes to Paige, accuses Emily of hitting on her and other girls on the team then shows Paige a photo of Emily being’inappropriate’ with Alison, hoping to anger Paige. Addison’s eavesdropping has paid off, she’s overheard Emily and Paige, and Emily and Alison.
I find Holden really attractive this time, also he’s so damn normal, and nice, and sweet.
Aria taking off the ring, foreshadowing?
“Did Ezra propose to her first?”- Aria
Holden reminds Aria that everyone has a past, that even Aria has had other men tell her they love her, and she doesn’t talk to Ezra about that so maybe Ezra wouldn’t tell her if he had proposed to Nicole before she disappeared
“Just because you met him when you were in 11th grade doesn’t mean he’s frozen in amber” - Holden. Holden is so anti-Ezra but not in a tell Aria to ditch his ass way.
Emily tells Paige she will go tell Hackett about what Addison is doing, Paige tells Emily she will handle it before it gets worse and Emily is accused of hitting on students
Marco has a lead in. Mary..Lead out of Scranton! Mary Drake works at Dunder Mifflin!
Spencer has enlisted Marco to help find Mary
Tap tap tap Jenna is coming!!!
Jenna can identify Spencer by her breathing? Come the fuck on now. Jenna can see, at the very least she can partially see
So we know Jenna has been told to say all this, she does it convincingly, so convincingly that I question all the other times I’ve felt bad for Jenna when she has a sob story.
I think Jenna has always wanted revenge for the liars blinding her, and Noel for him getting suspended for cheating, and perhaps other things we don’t know about.
Jenna tells Marco that Noel was the psychopath that lured Jenna to the blind school to kill her, and he had her work for him so she could have money for eye surgery.
Not sure why Marco didn’t take Jenna aside, to begin with..it’s unprofessional and ridiculous to let Spencer stand there as Jenna makes her statement
Hanna tries to call Claudia about the dress…
“She has balls the size of church bells.” - Omg Spencer..just omg.
She hasn’t told Marco about the game but seems to want to.
Sparia discusses Spencer wanting to find Mary. She wants to get to know Mary, not as someone to fear but to forgive.
Jenna walks in with 2 other blind people, flanking her on either side..or..’‘bookends’ - as Emily would describe it.
Jenna sends a text and Emily hears Addison’s phone go off at the same time
Spencer tells her Veronica she won’t be working with her anymore. I’m really disappointed with Spencer right now, Veronica does not deserve this treatment, I get that she is upset but to take it all out on Veronica instead of Peter is unfair. Veronica continues to tell her she loves her and has never felt they were not a family and Spencer is just cold. I really feel for Veronica, and find Spencer irritating and a little much right now. I usually love Spencer but she’s 23, not 13. This woman adopted you and raised you as her own, not telling you you’re the product of an affair her cheating husband had with a mentally ill woman sounds like the safer thing to do.
Spencer has the audacity to sound upset about the house being sold after she’s outright said Veronica isn’t her mother and after she’s been nothing but cold to Veronica since she found out Mary is her mom and she seems to want to forgive Mary but punish Veronica.
Arias dress is cute
Aria gets an article on Ezra reuniting with his fiance Nicole Gordon. The article talks about Nicole’s kidnapping and being held by guerrilla forces. They show pictures of Ezra and Nicole before and after the reunion. I am low key shipping Aria and Holden. I get the feeling that Ezra won’t be able to leave Nicole. He will tell Aria this in a way that makes him seem like some white knight to Nicole and how Aria would always feel guilty for Nicole not getting Ezra.. he will make it seem like he’s doing her the favor. He’s everyone’s white knight.
Mona seems to be working like crazy on this fashion business and Hanna is too busy waiting to eat with Caleb to even look at jewelry designers Mona is showing her right this minute? She asks Mona to forward them to her. Hanna this is your business, get yourself into it, Caleb can eat by himself, you can see him later. I don’t get this too busy for a career and relationship thing.
Catherine is going to BORROW shoes from Hanna? Why wouldn’t she buy a pair like them? Hanna is having these shoes fixed.It’s not like Hanna designed the shoe, it’s just strange to me.
OMG Jenna walks in wearing Hanna’s dress but in white, and I must say it looks better in white, and great on Jenna
Mona flips out, more so than Hanna, who acts rather meekly, wtf where is crazy Hanna right now? Mona confronts Jenna with a..’Yo Jenna! ‘ Omg Mona is amazing
Jenna claims the dress was a gift, Jenna says she and her posse have an uber waiting and she tap taps the fuck out of there
Hanna says it’s all part of the game and Mona is left asking what game.
Mona is getting left behind again. I don’t want A to be Mona again because I feel Mona has gotten past that and is a strong and confident woman now.
Emily wants to get into the barn to see the Game to play it because she is convinced Addison is working for A.D
Emily reminds the audience A.D took a final exam for her
“I’m living proof, once you invite the devil in, horrid little seeds start to sprout” - Alison.OMG
Jenna and her posse meet at the cobbler place where Hanna’s shoes are
Caleb wants to handle Jenna
Jenna smells Hanna on Caleb, and guesses it is Hanna behind her. Caleb questions why she is here, and where she got the dress. He even grabs her by the cane and threatens her. She reminds him only Noel could contradict the story she told the police and he’s dead.
Hanna gets locked in a caged off room at the cobbler’s place, someone obviously closed that door, it didn’t swing randomly closed on its own, and someone shut off the lights.
lol @ #benchme lol Addison is taking bong hits with her boyfriend in a car behind the brew.
Aria the greatest liar convinces a nurse to let her in after visiting hours but telling her she’s brought her good friend Nicole some salt water taffy.
317 is Nicole’s room number.
Holden stops Aria from going in to see/confront Nicole. He’s such a sweetheart and really mature!
The sander thing is going off, something swings from the ceiling tries to punch Hanna, she’s having pure flashbacks of being tortured in the barn with that cattle prod. She gets a text from A.D and A.D really seems to hate Hanna, like a lot.
‘Wait your turn, Bitch, It’ll come. And you’ll be ready - A.D
A.D seems to hate Hanna more than anyone, Spencer gets clues about her mother, Aria just has Ezra drama and Emily gets help from A.D in dealing with Addison. Why the major Hanna hate? Spencer twin would hate Hanna for the Spaleb mess. HMM.
Caleb rescues Hanna
Emily confronts and threatens Addison with the bong video, Paige intervenes and tells Addison she’s in trouble for gloating about getting rid of Emily in an email they found. Her parents and principal Hackett have been informed
‘Why? you gonna smack me? “- Addison.
“No I can’t do that, but somebody should have a long time ago”. - Emily
Aria asks Holden if she should give the ring back and Holden tells her not to expect Ezra to be on her timetable, if he needs time give it to him and that he’s probably more torn up than she is.
Emily is given another puzzle piece, still black and white, still scrawly lines and an abstract feel. Spencer theorizes it’s a map but I still think it could be a sonogram or a collage that includes a sonogram picture.
So that’s my live watch review..I’ll try to post some more thoughts later!
