Pretty Little Liars Round Table: "Monsters in the End"

by at . Comments

Following the most action-packed, mystery-revealing episode of Pretty Little Liars yet, let's get right to the latest edition of the TV Fanatic Round Table.

What did lead critic Teresa Lopez and fans Kate Sage and Tara Gans think of "Monsters in the End." Read on. Find out. Chime in with your own take on these topics...

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

What was your favorite scene from the episode?
Teresa: My favorite was definitely Spencer kissing Toby in front of her family. No one can keep these two apart.

Kate: When Melissa accidentally revealed that she hasn't been to Hilton Head. What does Ian have over you, Melissa??? It must be good if you're willing to fake a pregnancy/abortion/miscarriage and let your sister become a person of interest in a murder.

Tara: How about my favorite scene that did NOT happen? When Toby (the knight in shining armor) rescued a trapped Spencer from the clown room. It would have been so cute! Instead, it was terrible Ian.

What's scarier: finding out you and your best friends have been secretly videotaped for years by an unknown murderer ... OR ... the clowns in the funhouse?
Teresa: Oh, those clowns were terrible. The stuff of nightmares!

Kate: The videos of the girls were absolutely chilling. It makes it so much more creepy that Alison was happily smiling and flirting with Ian on the video from the night she died, though. Like, shouldn't she have been wary of videos after seeing all the ones that she had locked up?

Tara: Clowns. I hate their tricks.

Was it wrong for Mona to read Caleb's letter to Hanna? Was is right for Hanna/Aria to set up a fake Facebook account to get intel on Ezra?
Teresa: Wrong on all counts. There are no excuses for snooping.

Kate: The writers did a good job on this. Mona's personality would totally snoop and interfere in Hanna's life. No friend should make decisions like this for another - Hanna had a right to read that letter. Meanwhile, Aria has integrity, and didn't go through with her fake "website" account. Props to Aria... and forgiveness to Hanna - she was just operating on emotion in suggesting it to Aria, I don't think she would have gone through with it in her own life, either.

Tara: Mona was just trying to help her friend, and Aria just wanted the truth about Ezra. As long as they are honest in the end, like Aria was, then it's okay. Mona will tell Hanna about the letter, too, just wait.

Samara vs. Paige: Who is better for Emily?
Teresa: Samara is such a better match. After Ali and Maya, Emily really needs a relationship without drama.

Kate: Emily needs to take a break for awhile. Maya to Paige to Samara... just take some time for yourself, girl! Get your thoughts straight, work on your relationship with your mom, solve Alison's murder, catch A, and take your time figuring out what kind of girl you want to date.

Tara: I still think Maya will come back and win over Emily. Paige and Samara are just rebounds.

Favorite Scene?
Spencer and Toby kiss. I knew the moment Spencer didn't see Toby when she went in, that she was mislead. I was still uncertain as to Ian's role in this, but through her relief, she did have her shoulder to lean on. Scarier?
The clowns had that misty eyed scary touch that lasted throughout that moment, but something about the videotapes seems creepier, more sadistic and scary for the girls, knowing that there could be copies of personal conversations and things not meant for camera lurking out there. Sadly that does not go away. Mona reading Caleb's letter to Hanna? Aria and the profile?
Not best friend worthy, more of a jaw dropping moment when Mona decided to open the letter. Hannah is responsible enough to learn from situations like this one. It was Mona-like, but not being a good friend in this case.
As for Aria setting up the profile, as much as the teenager side to her might have been okay with Hannah's idea, I applaud Aria for her maturity in confronting Ezra instead. This brings up new revelations for their relationship which is complicated in the sense that they do have feelings for each other, but age-wise they would have a lot of catching up to do. Aria should not be dealing with her boyfriend having an engaged ex, that is a lot of baggage, but the writers create an Aria that matches up to the challenge for the time being. Samara vs. Paige?
Too much extra drama, while Emily has her own hectic drama to deal with. Maybe being single is the best option right now.

I loveeee Spencer and Toby together!!! That kiss was adorable and her moms face was priceless! I think what mona did was wrong but i know that she only did it because she wants hanna for herself so they can be close again. The fact that they were being videotaped and stalked is the scariest thing ever! Forget Samara and Paige! Bring back Maya. I am a huge fan of Bianca Lawson since Buffy, and plus i thought they were great together...plus she had good hair unlike Paige

omg...i almost cried when the cop showed up to Ezras. I love Aria and him together. I wish when he had orginally talked about finding another job so they could be together he would have done it. Maybe he will now. I just want them to work out on the show. I think the producers will keep him around though...he's a good twist in the show.

I feel like I'm the only one who likes Paige, I don't get why they keep bringing in so many different romances for all these girls and then kind of not addressing when they go away, like spencer's guy from the country club, but toby is better anyways

My favorite scene was when the cop showed up at Ezra's! I'm dying to see what happens next.
Clowns are creepy. Especially the one's in that fun house. Could the one that was videotaping them be Ali's brother Jason?
It was wrong of Mona to read the letter. It was even more wrong for her to rip it up. But I saw that one coming a mile away! I initially thought that her mother might rip it up but when Hannah left Mona to talk to him, I knew she'd rip it up. Props to Hannah's mom for trying to make Hannah see him though. She earned points in my book.
I don't blame Aria for doing that. At first when she deleted it, I thought she was being a little hasty, however I do think she made the right choice.
To be honest, I don't really care who Emily dates. I'm glad Maya is out of the picture.

this episode was just..wow. And omg I hate Mona!! I kind of want Ezra to be arrested..it would be an interesting twist.

Fav Scene; Spencer and Toby all the way. But that's my tiny obsession with them speaking LOL
Scarier are the clowns for sure. I have such a fear of them that looking at them made me want to burst into tears. Clowns are never good signs. Mona was so wrong on this. No matter her intentions, Hanna had a right to read the letter. But Aria didn't go through with the Facebook thing so she has so much more respect for me. She is very much more mature then you'd think. Emily needs to be alone for awhile. Just a bit. But Maya will eventually be back, so they are going to be together in the end. i just know it LOL

What was your favorite scene from the episode?
When Spencer went inside the fun house and got traped,it really showed how well the girl can act, i even felt the fear she had. What's scarier: finding out you and your best friends have been secretly videotaped for years by an unknown murderer ... OR ... the clowns in the funhouse?
The video tape only for the fact that in the book it was toby who was spying on them but he isnt in the show so its making me scared thinking who was stalking them this whole time,who is that sick. Was it wrong for Mona to read Caleb's letter to Hanna? Was is right for Hanna/Aria to set up a fake Facebook account to get intel on Ezra?
It was wrong of Mona to tear up the letter, she wasnt sopports to read it and she isnt a good friend and Aria has the right to set up a page and check whats up with the man she is with right now. Samara vs. Paige: Who is better for Emily?
How about Maya, come on they were hot and right for each other

I also like that Spencer embrace Toby right in front of her family. I strongly believe that Hanna and Caleb will be together because they have to much of a strong fanbase to let it go.
