Pretty Little Liars – s07e18 – Choose or Lose – REVIEW

ATTENTION! This review contains some strong language and (obviously) spoilers from the 18th episode of season 7 of Pretty Little Liars. You have been warned!

Okay so, I’m back from episode 18. And I’m really upset because I saw a spoiler while on twitter. I managed not to read any spoilers during these past few months, and of course I did it on the third to last episode. Anyway, let’s get into it!

Already from “the previously on” I know that there’s going to be Toby in this episode because when they bring back into the “previously on” characters I haven’t been in the show for a while, it means they are on the episode. And this upsets me quite a lot: I WANT THE ELEMENT OF SURPRISE!!
Speaking of people who are back, Ali is in the house!!!

It still feels weird for Emily and Ali to be together as I was so used to Emily and Paige and I shipped them so much. I wish they would have stayed together.
And now the police have search warrants for the girl’s flats. At least Marco hasn’t appeared yet I would’ve been so fucking pissed. But he’s not longer on the case!
The police woman who used to investigate all the cases related to the girls is back. Marco is gone I’m so happy I don’t want to see your stupid face anymore.

Aria as the villain is something that I really can’t get behind of. It just seems innatural and forced. And so close to the end of the serie, depicting her as in evil character is absurd. I’ve said this before and I will continue saying this until the end of the show (in two weeks): RIDICULOUS.

So then Emily and Alice and tell their friends live been sleeping together and that they are actually a couple. And there is literally no reaction. NOTHING.

One of the craziest thing that happened is that Mona barged into the room and told the girls but I has been working with A.D. .

She had a couple of episodes to say this and she decided that this was the best time? I think everything is happening very very quickly and they could have spread it across the season and deleted all of that bullshit that they put in those “filler” episodes.

But my favourite thing in this ep is definitely Toby’s appearance. He looks like a poor and trashy version of a real man like Nick Offerman.

Ezra is finally getting suspicious about Aria’s behaviour. WAKE UP, MAN!

Thinking of meeting with A.D., Aria goes to a hidden location in the middle of the wood but instead of the person who has been terrorising them for ages, she finds her friends who have set her up. Obviously, they get really really angry and Spencer and the conversation with “we’re done”.
Very dramatic…

Anyway, she tells her friends the reason she has been working with A.D. It’s because when they found out about Ezra’s book about Alison, she wanted to get back at him so she filed a police report saying that she had been taken advantage of. Isn’t that stupid? She is now marrying the guy she filled in a police report about. Of course the police is going to be suspicious! This show amazes me every single time!

But they are called back to the police station where Detective Tanner (see?! I remembered her name) shows them a piece of glass from the windshield of Archer’s (ICYMI, it’s Alison’s dead husband) car. And this piece of evidence has blood on it.
They are definitely in big trouble…

At the beginning of the episode, A.D. sent the girls a phone with a countdown clock. We don’t know what that means, we don’t know what the countdown stands for. It is actually frustrating. I hate it.

But let’s not forget what I’m most looking forward to find out. I want to know who the baby daddy is! Why can’t they just tell us!?

Now Spencer is confronting Aria for all the bullshit that she did. I was expecting so much drama but they don’t yell at each other, they don’t say anything. But then Detective Tanner comes in and gives back all of Aria’s belongings to her and of course, Spencer is pissed.

Wait! Now she’s telling Ezra what she did and he knows about the report? He’s not angry? Why aren’t they fighting! I just want them to lash out at each other so bad.

2017-06-20 (6).pngEverybody stop everything that you’re doing: Hannah and Caleb are getting married. Like, right now. And now Mrs Marin is here! It’s sooo cute! I can’t believe it but I am actually happy about this. I’m so glad they’re getting married without a pompous Ceremony. No white gown, no cutesy lovey-dovey shit, no stupid vows…

Exactly the opposite of the following scene with Alison and Emily.

But wait, the romantic shit is not over yet. Spencer went to Toby’s cabin for whatever reason. I just can’t look at him with that beard. It’s really really ridiculous. Getting together in this episode means they have literally no morals. He has just lost his fiancΓ©e in a car crash that he was driving. And now she’s pulling moves on him. Yes, they are smooching. No wait everybody is smooching and having sex. Why? Literally everybody!!! Not a fan of this scene.
Except the Hannah and Caleb part, because that is actually very very cute… 😍😍

Time is running out! The countdown is about to hit zero and I can’t wait to see what happens next.
But Spencer smashed the phone! Is she stupid?!

And Aria is now volunteering to turn herself into the police and committing a murder? But now A.D. tells her that she has limited freedom and that she has won the game?

Oh look! A Samsung galaxy has exploded!

Who is in her trunk?! ARCHER?! And now she’s been pulled over by the police? I am loving this so much.

So is Mona actually the villain? Is she A.D.? Because frankly I don’t believe it.



The trash is back, baby! I’m not a huge fan of this half of the season. There is so much stuff we should be worrying about and instead the writers are focusing on bullshit nobody cares about. (See: Yvonne).

What are A,D.’s motives? Where are Aria’s parents? Don’t they have jobs they have to get back to? What about Lucas and Hannah’s fashion firm? There are so many questions!!! And only 2 episodes left!

I’m baffled.

Hope you’ve enjoyed this long review and please let me know of any other trashy show I should watch because I am in need of some bad television.

Pretty Little Liars – s07e17 – Driving Miss Crazy – REVIEW

ATTENTION! This review contains some strong language and (obviously) spoilers from the 17th episode of season 7 of Pretty Little Liars. You have been warned!

I feel like my latest posts have been only about this show, but I promise: I intend to broaden my orizon and post about something else. In just a couple of weeks the entire series is coming to an end. I have to admit: I’m pretty sad. What other trashy show should I start watching? Please help me. I need my trash. (And one hour and a half of “Th Bachelorette” does not even begin to scratch the surface. ❀

Without much ado, let’s drive straight into the episode!



Right from the first shot, the tension between Aria and Ezra was palpable. That whole dancing thing was unbelievably awkward. Finally he starts asking questions: just not the right ones.

2017-06-11WAIT!! Aria has “How I Met Your Mother”‘s Ted’s red cowboy boots!!! I’m certain that under the sole there is the tag: “Property of Ted Mosby” πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

So, let me recap: AD is blackmailing Aria because of a report she filed against Ezra when they were student and teacher. Great.

MARCO! Why are you here? Please disappear. But for the first time he asked the right question: “Why does Caleb live in a hotel?”

2017-06-11 (1).png

And Alison is in New York. Thank God, one less problem.

On a side note, when Mona said: “What did I miss?” and I started singing Hamilton. Lin-Manuel Miranda and Daveed Diggs, I love you both.

2017-06-11 (2).png

Uh! Hannah’s mother is back. And Caleb lied straight to her face. Nice son-in-law…

I am so disappointed in Aria. I truly am. She was never my favourite character. I loved her relationship with Ezra, but let’s face it. She has terrible judgement.

I love Mona. Please, tells us about Emily and Alison’s baby daddy! I desperately want to know.

I am convinced Hannah is beginning to see through Aria’s bluff.
And Spencer has found the phone that Aria planted in her house!

I have been waiting 3 episode for a big fight between Aria and Ezra, or at least some kind of confrontation. AND I THINK IT IS FINALLY HAPPENING. I’m through the roof.

NO WAIT.
But they are not fighting. He is just misinterpreting everything! This is unacceptable. And now they ae hugging. Great.

2017-06-11 (3)

Why? Why are they bringing up Spencer and Caleb relationship? I have been trying to forget about it since it ever happened! Of course I basically shouted when Mary appeared on Spencer’s backseat. And really cannot care less about the entire conversation.
So Spencer’s dad and Alison’s mother tried to kill Mary with some pills. That’s it. NOBODY CARES! TELL ME ABOUT THE BABY DADDY!!

 

And what’s with the awkward conversation with Hannah, Caleb and Ashley? And the bullshit excuse he gives? Come on! So sappy! I want to puke. *eye roll* πŸ™„
WHAT?! WHAAAAAAAT?! HE PROPOSED?! In front of her mother? And the looks they gave each other? To me, it was the physical rappresentation of sadness.

2017-06-11 (6).png

But wait the surprises are not over! Aria has a weird musical dream in a prison. Every episode I tell myself that the show cannot get more ridiculous, but it does! I love it so much.
With the Elvis rock and roll music. It was so bad. Never have I see such bullshit. They did a similar thing once: Spencer having flashbacks or having black and white dreams. But they were all wearing clothes from the 40s… This show is so ridiculous. Nobody can keep the “facts” straight.

Uh! They are going to tell us the name of the baby daddy! Ehm no well, the ID number but still. Maybe by next episode we will have an answer.

2017-06-11 (7).png

I really want to storm off like Mr Hastings did! I want to yell, scream and then storm off slamming the door. I came close one day when a friend got me unbelievably upset, but I’ve never done it! And I desperately want to!

What is with Caleb and Hannah and the tent. It is not romantic. Do you know how warm it gets with two people in that small shitty tent? It’s not just that!! She took a piece of paper from the sigars and used it as fake wedding rings? I hate it. I was about to write that the tent scene was cute, but now.. EW.

Mary looked very disappointed when Spencer said she wouldn’t leave. And it was so sad when Spencer referred to Mrs Hastings has her mother in front of Mary. And she gracefully took it. She might be crazy but at least she has integrity.

2017-06-11 (8).png

Uuuuh! What is Mona hiding?
Is she AD?

What?

No!!!

This is stupid.

(Of course she is not AD. They just want to build suspence and make us think she is AD. Oldest trick in the book. Nobody is fallin for that.)



There is no doubt that my favourite trash thing in this episode was the musical/dream. Why did they think that it would be good? BECAUSE IT IS NOT.

But at the same it soooo is.

There are only three episodes left and there are so many unanswered questions. Frankly, I believe they are going to leave us hanging. It is impossible that they will wrap up all of these shenanigans in ony three 40-minutes episodes. What I really want to know is: WHO IS THE BABY DADDY? PLEASE TELL ME!!!

Hope you enjoyed my rambly review. πŸ™‚
