The ‘Waiting’ Game
Well, it came, after nearly eight months of a hiatus, Pretty Little Liars returned with it’s first of the final ten #endgame episodes, “Playtime.”
I know that it was a premier event and that there was only so much territory possible covered, but I kinda hated this episode. Andrea Parker (Mary Drake) said there would be a “mouth-gaped” shock moment in episode 7×11.
… an absolutely, pick-your-teeth-up-off-the-floor, mouth-gaped, didn’t-see-that-coming” scene happens in the first episode of 7B. It’s right up top. It happens pretty fresh in the first episode… and it is an exciting ride.” (Source)
Um, when? Did I miss it?
Unless Parker was referring to the most obvious of obviousness?
When it comes to Spencer, Peter Hastings IS the father (and Mary was supposed to be Jessica, but then wasn’t.)
Of course, Mary Drake is Spencer’s mom. Of course, Peter slept with her ‘thinking she was Jessica DiLaurentis.’ For real, 85% of the PLL fandom already predicted this.
It was an NC-17 switcharoo; Peter needed to get his playtime sorted out.
Also, what the hell kind of cruise was Peter and Veronica on that, they took a week to get back to their recently shot daughter? And Peter had trouble with his passport? Is that because it’s a fake and he’s wearing a mask? I won’t go there, but I bet somebody will.
I feel for Spencer, however. What a mess. This girl cannot catch a break with that clan of hers. Mary being her biological mother actually does make a lot of sense.
The ‘ships have sailed
Okay, I know people shit their pants over Haleb, but they bore me. I don’t care about the ships at all. Unless it’s the friendSHIPS, I don’t ship it. I just can’t with these couples.
Regarding the ships, I will say this though, APPLAUSE to Emily Fields for telling Ali to back the fuck up unless she figures her sexuality out, right quick.
I still hate Ezra
Ezra. He’s AD. You know what I think. Is he in New York with Nicole’s family? No. He was translating his plans to torment his girlfriend and her friends into braille for Jenna Marshall.
“Keep planning your wedding, Aria, and he’ll show up,” says Hanna.
Um, no. Take a break from the bullshit, Aria, and try and figure out why somebody wants to ruin your life so badly. I mean, besides the obvious.
Who the hell is in France?
Spencer’s gunshot wound was from a .22, not Jenna’s .45. Marco Polo confirmed the ballistics. But Archer’s passport was scanned in France.
So some mofo is eating baguettes by The River Seine with a Huw Collins mask? This stinks of Charlotte, and I don’t know how I feel about that. I’m still holding out hope for Melissa’s involvement.
Katherine Daly is .actually a chick named Katherine Daly. The fandom had all hoped that the name Katherine Daly was a cover up for a young Mary Drake flashback. Lame. Hanna gave her a dress to wear, and Mona took the credit. We don’t have time for this.
Again, we don’t have time for this.
The return of ‘Bitchy Ali’
“Bitchy Ali” is back. My prediction? She’ll be gone by minute 4 of the next episode with maybe a few bits of flare here and there (ooh, that rhymes!). That wasn’t the old Ali that was the hormonal-I’m-knocked-up-with-a-conman’s-baby, Ali.
AD’s board game is ridonkulous.
I do, however, like the idea that the Liars are forced to put together a puzzle.
Time is too limited for the game to be random at this point.
The bottom line?
This episode didn’t meet my expectations, but I suppose this is because of the super long break we had to endure.
I’m, of course, going to keep playing Marlene King’s game.
Because believe it or not, I have faith that the ending will be worth all of her fuckery.
So, greatest troll of the Internet Marlene, let’s play!
Despite my feelings on this episode, I want more.
