Pretty Little Liars Round Table: "The Goodbye Look"
There was one seriously HOT kiss on Pretty Little Liars this week, along with a few frustrating storyline holes.
But TV Fanatic staff members Matt Richenthal, Steve Marsi and Eric Hochberger are here to pick them all apart in the latest installment of the TV Fanatic Round Table. Come along as we analyze "The Goodbye Look" and sound off with your take on the following topics...
What was your favorite scene from the episode?
Matt: How is this even a question? You saw the leap-into-his-arms-and-lay-a-big-kiss-on-him-in-public-for-the-first-time between Aria and Ezra, right? Hawt.
Steve: When Spencer found Melissa's soaking boots and the ultrasound photo. I thought it was sort of boring up until that point, but that development shocked me. There's no way Ian is alive, right?!?
Eric: Can the inner cinematographer geek in me come out? They shot Emily's dive and swim into the pool in a very cool way. (Sorry.)
More far-fetched: Emily not protecting her computer better, the girls not checking Melissa's phone closer or the Danby scout saying Emily wouldn't get a scholarship if she moves to Texas?
Matt: Option number-one. Those videos were only the most important pieces of evidence to support the Liars' version of events. You'd think Emily might use a password for her computer, buy a USB, something... anything.
Steve: It's a tie between the computer and the phone. But require a complete abandonment of logic from the viewers. We're really meant to believe Emily would leave the files wide open, and that the girls wouldn't think to check Melissa's Sent Messages?!?
Eric: The scholarship thing. I agree with you two that the technology overlooks were stupid, but whatever. Let's just say the gals were panicked. But this simply isn't how scholarships are awarded. Emily is already into her senior year, no school would possible care if she finished it in a different state.
Eric: Of course!
Do you trust Melissa?
Matt: Yes. This is what I don't understand: why are the girls convinced Ian is alive, simply because he texted the name "Taylor?" Why can't that just be the work of "A?" Everything else is, even when it seems physically impossible.
Steve: No way. Those shifty eyes, that sly smile, her outfits. Girl might not even be pregnant!
Eric: Yes. I trust that she'll rarely tell the truth! She's definitely up to something, though I doubt she's still working with Ian. She may even have been the one to push him to his death.
