Ok ok, you know what this is. Time for another TeamAli rant, I know. But this topic is something I would like do address better and I got to back up my main bitch right now.
A lot of you look at this first gif and you go, “wow look at Alison’s smirk, she’s so playing Emily”. But no! Take a look a the second gif, now the first, now the second, now the first again. Do you see similarities? It’s not a smirk, it may seem like one but maybe that’s just how Alison is. It’s actually a genuine, heartfelt little curl of her lips that has SO much meaning that you wouldn’t understand unless you were TeamAli.
She wasn’t smirking because she thought she had Emily in her trap again, she was smiling (I think Alison’s softly smiling) because for one tiny second, everything was ok because for the one tiny second, Emily was still by her side. Emily is Alison’s rock, her support, without Emily, Alison is just like… Floating by. Alison thought she lost Emily, but when Emily told her “I don’t want things to be this way” Alison believed her for a second because that’s what she wanted to hear from Emily at that moment. By the time she turned around, that second of hope was gone because Alison realized she was being played at her own game.
We all know that you can’t pull the wool over Alison’s eyes, especially as the game that she’s starting Varsity for. She’s been playing the game for two years, staying one step ahead. Don’t expect to win at something Alison is experienced in, let alone trick her. She saw right through Emily when she realized her mom doesn’t do last minute shopping (which is a small detail Alison remembered and makes me go aww), and I think Alison was pretty crushed, which is why she fired back the way she did.
Just review those two gifs again, the smiles are the same. The one in the library and the one when she had her back to her give me that warm and heartfelt vibe, and some people probably see it as a smirk because we have barely seen these types of smiles come from Alison ever.
Really quick I just wanted to throw out a small connection I made. So in “Welcome To The Dollhouse”, the boys are working in Toby’s apartment desperately trying to locate the girls. When the Hasting’s show up, it gets a little distracting but I focused on the part where Ezra gets some kind of notification to his phone and explains to the group gathered at Toby’s that the police are downstairs and they want to come in.
Now, this was extremely strange to me because first of all, Toby is a cop, wouldn’t he get a heads up?? At first, I thought nothing of it because Ezra had cameras everywhere but then I remembered they took them all down and that they were at Toby’s. Then they show Andrew downstairs at The Brew. So,, clearly what happened was Andrew is working for Ezra listening and watching, he saw the cops pull up outside and texted Ezra that they were trying to enter the premise.
Now, I would just LOVE to find out the motive here. Did Ezra tell Andrew to swoop in once they broke up so he wouldn’t lose his source of information/story?
Point off topic..
The sticker on his laptop makes me think of this:
So just how long has Andrew been taking orders from Ezra?
OR is it a situation where Andrew wasn’t supposed to fall for Aria but Ezra asked him to follow her and then he fell for her? OR is it that Ezra told him to date her when they broke up for info? twisted, but possible in PLL world.
I know its the school logo, but really how many people in the PLLs circle would wear that?
RIGHT NOW, EMILY DOESN’T DESERVE ALISON DILAURENTIS. ALISON SAVED HER TIME AFTER TIME, TRUSTED HER, BEGGED FOR HER FORGIVENESS, GAVE HER SOME SPACE WHEN SHE ASKED FOR IT…. MEANWHILE, EMILY WAS GOING TO PLANT FALSE EVIDENCE TO GET HER ARRESTED. ITS NEVER ONE OF THE LIARS THAT NEED TO GET REDEEMED, BUT THE TABLES HAVE TURNED CAUSE THEY ALL OWE ALISON A BIG FUCKING APOLOGY
….to the podcast Bros Watch PLL Too; they do awesome recaps of each PLL episode but also interviews with a lot of the PLL writers and directors, etc. They are the only podcast I can listen too! You can find their podcast on iTunes or you can go to their website at www.broswatchplltoo.com
….you can re-watch all the episodes by using NetFlix or the DVDs but both options only have Seasons 1-4. So, I found this website that you can watch each episode (including Season 5) that has taken place so far! www.movietube.cc
….The Pretty Little Liars series (yes, there is 17 books, and yes they are super dragged out but hey it gives you a complete different point of view of the story we know & love) I can honestly say the PLL is the ONLY circumstance where I think that the tv show or movie is actually BETTER than the books. Weird right?! ….The Lying Game series, written also by Sara Shepard. Easy read, good story, good twist! Six books, it had somewhat of a same element of the Pretty Little Liars books. ….Also written by Sara Shepard, The Perfectionist.. another easy read and similar writing.
The_pll_sherlock Such an amazing account. The don’t write theories, but they do find just about every single clue and literary reference! They see things I don’t see anywhere else!
Any other suggestions, feel free to comment, how else will we get through this who is charles wait???
