Pretty Little Liars – Season 7 Episode 12 – “These Boots Are Made For Stalking”

ATTENTION! This review contains some strong language and (obviously) spoilers from the latest Pretty Little Liars episode. You have been warned!

So…. I’ve been terribly busy (Uni, my driver’s license and tutoring… I’m so sleep deprived) and reviewing an episode takes time. I’m sorry for the delay!

NOTHING HAPPENED IN THIS EPISODE. NOTHING.

What are the producers thinking? There are only a handful of episodes left and they are dragging this shit for miles!!!

it’s been a lot of weeks since episode 12, so I’ve had to skip through it AGAIN and it was painful. Let’s break it down (almost) character per character:

SPENCER:

Spencer existential crisis only remotely interesting thing that has happened here. I’m sorry about her screwed-up family and this situation is ridiculous, but at least there were some real emotions involved. Her stubbornness in finding her birth mother is totally legitimate.

BTW to be perfectly candid, dear Spencer… DITCH THE COP! Such a useless and boring character! What is his purpose in life?!

One of the lines that made me laugh the most was Spencer saying: “Lock her up” to the cop guy because she wanted to get rid of Jenna Marshall. I kid you not, the first thing that came to my mind was when Donald Trump said it referring to Hillary Clinton. I pictured Spencer with a blond wig, power-red tie and fake tan yelling in front of a crowd of racists.

EMILY / ALLISON / PAIGE

The mini-Alison student called Addison. To quote Alanis Morrissette: “Isn’t it ironic??!” COME ON! IT IS RIDICULOUS!! SO BORING…

And of course, she works with Jenna Fucking Marshall. And she impossibly appears everywhere? Does she teleport to places? How the fuck does she do that?!!?

HANNAH

And what about Hannah’s dress? It’s ugly. Like, really ugly. The white version not so much but the other is definitely not my taste.

By the way, Caleb comes back and he delivers the fakest dramatic lines of the episode. Something along the lines of “Jenna, go the fuck away. I’m the smart tech guy and I’m threatening you.” Caleb, please… Get a better hair style and better facial hair. Also, go play with your hacking devices thing-ys and stop making empty threats. Thank you!

And Mona making the “Mona Lisa having a perm” joke was just…. No.

ARIA

Where the fuck is Ezra? No seriously. Where is he? Why isn’t he here? Why did they resuscitate Nicole? It is just one more useless thing they decided to add into the show. Just to fill in the 42 minutes. Ew.

And who the hell is this cook guy? He has been back for two episodes and I have seriously never seen him before. And it is so fucking obvious that he is into her. He is asking Aria if Ezra is the only person who said “I love you” to her… Mind your business, man!

I sympathize with Aria, she is struggling with her relationship with Ezra and frankly, he is being a dick…


I was kind of disappointed with the episode. Boring. Meaningless. Useless. Meh.

Nevertheless, I enjoyed it! I might sound over-critical, but I love it!!! Like every single episode of PLL.

Love,

Georgia 🙂

Pretty Little Liars – Spring Premiere 2017 – Season 7 episode 11 – “Playtime” Review

ATTENTION! This review contains some strong language and (obviously) spoilers from the latest Pretty Little Liars episode. You have been warned!

I have reviewed a couple of episodes (ep 8, ep 9 and ep 10) of the latest season of Pretty Little Liars and I had so much fun. This show unloads so much stuff on one single episode. It’s unbelievable.

Pretty Little Liars

I have been waiting for a long time for the show to come back and finally, I can get back into the trash. If you’ve read my other posts, you know that I heavily trash the show, even though I adore it. It’s so teen-angst. To get back into the show and to refresh my memory, I re-watched some of the old episodes, just to remind myself of all the nonsense that happened.

And it’s been great. To quickly recap: Noel Kahn was working with A.D, he is psychotic and got beheaded by an ax (which was stuck on the floor), Jenna pointed a gun at the girls and started shooting around. (Need I remind you that she is blind?), someone shot Spencer but as Jenna was about to pull the trigger on Spencer, Mary Drake knocked her over and while someone dragged away an unconscious Jenna, Mary revealed that SHE was Spencer’s mother. And happy with all this tragedy, the creators decided that Toby and his fianceé (whose name eludes me) had to get into a really bad car crash.

AND, in the last few seconds, it is revealed that Jenna didn’t know A.D. and wasn’t working for them. But now she is trapped (presumably) in a van with him/her.

And bear in mind that this happened in the last 10 minutes. SO MUCH INFORMATION TO GO THROUGH!

But it’s been almost a year since this episode…. Let’s not waste more time and let’s dive into it. The following things that you will read were written while watching the episode, so it’s my genuine reaction to all the SHIT that happened.

Right in the first two minutes the amount of information is ridiculous. Yvonne (that’s the name of Toby’s fiancée!!!) is in a medically induced coma, the liars find out about Toby and said something about Mary Drake. What I don’t know. It was so fast!

Also, Ezra comes back! In the last episode, his previous girlfriend and girl he wrote his book about, came back to life. Yes. THAT HAPPENED.

Hannah pinching Caleb to “check that he is real.”  *eye roll* COME ON. The entire conversation was a cheesy sentence after another. I wanted to puke.

Can we just talk for a minute about the fact that Alison is a teacher now? It’s absurd.

PRESENT TIME!


Hannah:“Did you talk about the wedding?”

Aria: “No, we didn’t.”

IT WAS THE ONLY THING YOU HAD TO TALK TO HIM ABOUT!!!!


This whole Spencer/Cop thing is just stupid. Why is he even here? What is his point?!? So annoying.

And as you can see on the right…. Who the fuck is this guy? Holden? Where are you coming from? What’s the point of you? Meaningless people seem to be the theme of this entire episode.


It seems that for once, Veronica told Spencer the truth! Mr. Hastings had another illegitimate child! This time with Mary. But he thought she was Jessica? And Mary was in the asylum so Veronica took the baby in and adopted her as her daughter. I feel so bad for Spencer. It was completely absurd, but I really felt sorry for her.

So after her meltdown and her mother’s confession, she decided to play A.D.’s game and went to see Toby. And had an emotional heart to heart. Blah blah blah.

Then some shit with Mona and Hannah and a Senator’s daughter.  *eye roll*

Sometimes these subplots are so boring and at the same time better than any shit the show can make up. Just like this tension between Emily, Paige and Alison. I don’t really care. And it’s getting pathetic.

Anyway, as Hannah prepares to stab the game A.D. sent them, a video appears on the screen. It’s them, digging up Alison’s husband.

And as the final scene, we see Jenna asking questions to someone off camera. Obviously A.D. She says “End Game” and…. that’s the episode.



Frankly, I expected more. I was all in for a ridiculous episode like the summer finale but this one wasn’t as much fun. I liked it, don’t get me wrong. It was cheesy, stupid, ridiculous, annoying (like Ezra and fucking Nicole… COME ON!) and magnificent.

I’ll definitely try to review episode after episode until the very end, but I’m starting to live again and I’m getting slightly better and I don’t know how much time I’ll actually have 😦

Let me know if you liked the episode and your thoughts on it. I’d love to discuss it with you! BYE!
