Pretty Little Liars Review: “Scream For Me” (Season 5, Episode 8)

29 July 2014 10:11 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Aria (Lucy Hale) is apparently channeling all her guilt about Shana and directing it at Hanna (Ashley Benson) on this episode of Pretty Little Liars. It was only a matter of time before she found something to focus on besides her own grief, and Hanna’s current penchant for alcohol makes her an easy target. What it also does, is make it that much easier for A to get what she wants.

Obviously the text message from A was about ‘divide and conquer,’ a method that isn’t usually successful when it comes to the Liars, but Aria is playing right into his/her hand. Not only does she condemn Hanna for coping with the recent events in her chosen manner, but she doesn’t even hesitate before going off on her about the Zack confession. Hanna could have easily kept it to herself, and after listening to Aria’s self-serving rant, »

17 June 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

The Liars found Mrs. Dilaurentis’ body and Mona went back to her wicked ‘A’ ways in Pretty Little Liars’ “Whirly Girl.”

Ali Lies To The Police

Ali (Sasha Pieterse), Emily (Shay Mitchell), Aria (Lucy Hale), Spencer (Troian Bellisario) and Hanna (Ashley Benson) return to Rosewood after their disastrous run in with Shana (Aeriél Miranda) in New York with a plan: Ali will tell the police everything, including the fact that her mother buried her alive by mistake and that she has been running from whoever tied to kill her ever since. Once the police know about the ‘A’ that’s been tormenting all the girls for years, the girls will explain how Shana attacked them and Aria killed her in self defense. No more lies and no more hiding from the police – they all believe that Shana took over being A when Mona (Janel Parrish) stopped and that this whole mess is over. »

‘Pretty Little Liars’ Recap: Alison Gives Emily A Chilling Warning About ‘A’

21 January 2014 6:15 PM, PST | HollywoodLife | See recent HollywoodLife news »

Plus: Aria finally chooses between Ezra and Jake, and Hanna makes a major post-Caleb move!

Alison (Sasha Pieterse) activated the full power of her underground lesbian spy network on the Jan. 21 episode of Pretty Little Liars, using Shana to lure Emily (Shay Mitchell) into a secret meeting. Their reunion was brief — disappointingly so, after viewers have been extremely patient — but Emily and Ali did finally come face to face, and had Spencer (Troian Bellisario) not totally ruined the moment, they probably would have kissed.

Not much came of Emily and Ali’s meeting, except Emily now knows that Ali believes “A” is the person who’s been trying to kill her all this time. (Is this news?) I guess we’ll have to wait for the next time Ali decides to reach out to to Emily via Rosewood’s lesbian network, so keep checking the sky for the boob signal, »

'Pretty Little Liars' Recap: EzrA Steals Ali's Journal Back, Hanna Is In Denial About Her Breakup

14 January 2014 9:00 PM, PST | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Pretty Little Liars’ “Love ShAck Baby” had Hanna put on a brave face in light of her break-up with Caleb, while the girls go on an adventure to track down Ali based on clues found in her journal.

This week’s episode began with Hanna (Ashley Benson), Emily (Shay Mitchell), Spencer (Troian Bellisario) and Aria (Lucy Hale) agreeing to take turns reading Ali’s journal and marking which entries were about themselves. Ali (Sasha Pieterse), always crafty, gave everyone pseudonyms and wrote parts of her journal in code. To make matters even more complicated, the girls all have stories in the journal they’d like to keep hidden from each other. Emily takes the first turn and spends her night examining the journal, presumably reading about Ali’s flirtation with her and the kiss they shared before Emily came out to her friends. That night, Emily dreams that Ali comes »

Caleb said goodbye to Hanna for Ravenswood, Ezra and Aria rekindled their flame and the liars tried to deal with the reality of Alison being alive in Pretty Little Liars’s winter premiere, “Who’s In The Box?”

After coming face to face with Ali – the real red coat – in the Halloween special only to have her disappear again, the liars are desperately trying to figure out their next move. Hanna (Ashley Benson) takes the lead and decides that, instead of focusing on trying to track down Ali, the girls should aim for something more attainable, like determining who is buried in Ali’s coffin. Hanna thinks that if they find out whose body was found in Ali’s backyard (identified as Ali, supposedly by ‘A’) and connect this dead girl to someone they suspect or someone they can connect to Alison.
