Pretty Little Liars Round Table: "Know Your Frenemies"

by at . Comments

There's no way A means well... right?

We can't possibly be on Emily's mom's side... can we?

TV Fanatic staff members tackle these questions and more in the latest edition of the Pretty Little Liars, based on this week's "Know Your Frenemies." We encourage reader feedback on the issues posed below...

So, did Ian kill Alison?
Matt R: No, but he's clearly killing independent Melissa. What does he have on her? Why has she changed so much over the past couple weeks? I like how they've developed this character and relationship.

Steve M: Of course. You did hear the sounds emanating from that video, didn't you?

Teresa L: No way. Expect a twist to come out of this. I say Ian was actually making out with Alison, which makes him a slime ball. But not a killer.

Is Emily's mother overreacting to Maya?
Matt R: Yes, and then no. Her initial reaction to the simple news that Emily was gay was clearly based on ignorance and homophobia. But give Nia Peeples credit for creating a nuanced character here, one that is clearly just concerned about her daughter's well-being.

Steve M: Not really. Think about this: if Maya was male, and Pam reacted the same exact way, wouldn't you say she was being protecting of her teenage daughter?

Teresa L: Not at all. Didn't anyone see Refer Madness?!? That stuff has the power to brainwash you in ways you can't imagine.

Who would you least want to date: Noel or Sean?
Matt R: I don't mind Noel. At least the guy has ambition, even if he tries to arrive at it via manipulative means. Sean, on the other hand, is simply a douche. Sorry. Can't think of a better word to describe him.

Steve M: Noel. Sean is as pure as a Jonas brother. I respect his values.

Teresa L: Sean. Saint Bernards may be loyal, but they give sloppy kisses.

Might A be on the side of good?
Matt R: Only if it's opposite day! We're still talking about the same individual that ran Hanna over with a car, are we not?

Steve M: Allow me to cop out and simply say: I hope so. It would be a fantastic twist if A, for reasons that are eventually revealed, was actually helping the girls bring Alison's killer to justice. Through rather unusual means, of course.

Teresa L: A is definitely on the dark side. She's Regina George in Mean Girls evil.

    and if anyone tries to bash me for my opinion
    then your a hypocrite.
    cause if you have the right to say yes gayism is good
    then i have the right to say no its not.

    It pisses me off that they don't tel;l the police what's going on! Poor Toby might go to jail because of them when they have evidence on Ian! @Stacy Waldron Cooper I totally agree with the Melissa theory!

    It's weird, but I thought that scene with Hanna eating the piggy cakes was much harder to watch than the one where she got hit by the car. I already hated A for that, but after last episode..wow, I felt so bad for Hanna :(

    There are a lot of twist in this tv show which I come to like because nothing been keeping me on my feet for the past year until this came back on.

    I just have to say that I started crying during the Hanna "eating/binging" portion of the episode....But I more or less agree with Stacy

    Couldn't have said it better myself.

    I think that Melissa killed Alison because she was jealous. Ian knows she killed Alison, so he is black mailing her.
