Pretty Little Liars Round Table: "I Must Confess"

at . Comments

A confession led to an abduction this week on Pretty Little Liars. Where is Dr. Sullivan? Is that the main question you have heading into next week's midseason finale?

Such topics are on the mind of TV Fanatic Editor-in-Chief Matt Richenthal, along with staff writers Carissa Pavlica and Teresa Lopez. Won't you come along as they analyze "I Must Confess" via the latest edition of the Pretty Little Liars Round Table?


What was your favorite scene?
Matt: NOT seeing Ezra on my TV screen. Does that count? Nothing against the character, but that whole storyline is played out: Will he go public with Aria? Yes? No? Just decide already, please.

Carissa: The girls telling Dr. Sullivan about A. FINALLY an adult knows. It obviously doesn't bode well for the good doctor, but at least they tried. Second favorite scene was Aria and Mike coming clean about his shenanigans. They are less like liars now.

Teresa: Hanna's grandmother grossing out the girls was so funny. Her crass comments and I-don't-give-a-crap attitude is just perfect for a show that sometimes takes itself a little too seriously.

Were you happy to see Maya again?
Matt: No. She doesn't seem like a real human being. She's always smiling, and saying cheesy things, and she started hitting on Emily right away back on season one. The character just comes across as some kind of lesbian-related plot device.

Carissa: Surprisingly, yes. I found her a bit annoying the first go around, but she seems to have grown as much as Emily since they were last together. I hope they find happiness.

Teresa: Yes and no. I thought it was good for Emily to get some closure on that relationship, but I don't really want to see these two couple up again. They were kind of annoying and overly mushy.

What secret is Spencer's father hiding?
Matt: He's Jason's father. No doubt. Book it. Credit me later.

Carissa: I'm guessing Spencer's father is hiding a bushel full of secrets. The tip of the iceberg is that he changed the date on the will. The real intel will start falling out of the basket when A decides to focus on Spencer instead of Emily. Secrets about the DiLaurentis family should be good ones!

Teresa: A whole bunch of illegal activity? Actually, I hope its that Spencer actually killed Allison, but had some kind of psychotic crack up and doesn't remember it. Jason knows and exchanged his silence for the change to Grandma's will. Too crazy?

Kate's plan for vengeance: So cruel, or so lame?
Matt: Beyond lame. It relied far too much on factors outside of her control: What if Hanna didn't like vodka? What if she could hold her liquor? What if she had a big meal beforehand? What if she simply threw up in the toilet? Calling Blair Waldorf! Someone needs help scheming!

Carissa: Cruel and lame... would have been more cruel if we hadn't met Hanna's awesome grandmother. I really hope she sticks around. Surely, she can see how much Hanna needs her. Lame because the idiot was "babysitting" the dress and somehow thought it being ruined was Hanna's fault? But she wasn't the one babysitting it!

Teresa: It was kind of lame since it really relied on Hanna being dumb enough to drink herself stupid at such a formal event... and then dance around drunkenly with the dress... and then miss the sink, toilet, and/or floor to vomit directly on the dress. I take it back. Hanna was the lame one for falling for this complex revenge plot.

What is the one question you hope gets answered on the midseason finale?
Matt: What is Byron's middle name? Also: is Spencer's dad Jason's father? Just so I can be proven right.

Carissa: Who "A" is. It's time to find out and then move on to who was behind it. Because you know that part of the story will be an entire arc of its own.

Teresa: Please, please, please tell who us who A is. It's been long enough and I'm so ready to know


to all you Maya haters.Bianca can act very well.As good or better then the ones thats on there.I enjoyed her and Emily together.She is the only one who showed Emily how she feels about her.Samara wanted to date other people and piage had a problem.You dont date someone who push your head under water.Iam very happy to see Maya back.


Matt, you freakin genius!! Never would've thought of Spencer's dad being Jason's father...but that midseason finale pretty much spelled it out. how does it feel to be proven right? lol


Maybe the throwing up on the dress was just luck? Perhaps all kate planned to do was make Hannah drunk so that she would show herself and her father up at the dinner. Yes leaving the dress around a drunk Hannah could signify she wanted her to damage it in someway but in general, I'm sure Hannah's father would have been angry at just the fact she was drunk!


i just got finished reading the second book of pll last nite. nd at the end of the book there was a note from A saying spencer my have a gpa of a 4.0 but your not genuis enough to figure out who i am yet. but rember my name has A's 2. which means....4 people r A....jennA....gArret...jAson...monA. oh and one other thing emiLy+arIa+hannA+spenceR=LIAR


1. Fav scene was definitively the scene with Spencer's dad and the one where Mike was crying and asked if he was gonna be okay. I CRIED!
2. Maya, she's not that great of an actor so I don't care that much. I liked Samara!
3. Jason is totally Spencer's half bro! Best twist/secret EVER!!!! would rip everything to shreds!
4.Kate = a lucky bi*** cuz that revenge tactic would have never worked out logically!
5. I want to know what's up with Mike (i think he's either "in the closet" or part of NAT). I want to know what Mr. Hastings is hiding, and I think A will be relieved!


I liked the scenes with Hannah's grandmother however my least favorite thing about this episode was that Ezra was not in it. I look forward to Aria/Ezra scenes. They are by far my favorite couple.
I wasn't too excited to see Maya. I find her a bit annoying. And she definitely seems to eager. I feel like the actress tries a little too hard.
The whole A storyline is getting dragged out, but I imagine they can't really reveal A until close to the end of the show itself.
Ok, did anyone else find it weird that Kate would be carrying the wedding dress around the rehearsal dinner? Seriously, why would her mother even allow her to carry the dress around. That whole storyline was very stupid. Just plain stupid!

Matt: What is Byron's middle name? Also: is Spencer's dad Jason's father? Just so I can be proven right. OMG! I never thought about this! It seems prefect, it always seemed like he thought he was protecting one of his kids, either Spencer or Melissa..but if Jason were his kid it would make a lot more sense!


1. Favorite Scene was between Spencer and her father. OMG, I think the plot just advanced a little! The only time during the whole episode!
2. Maya seemed brainwashed just by looking at her. I bet she's not even gay anymore, that Jesus boot camp "cured" her!
3. Spencer's dad was probably banging Allison and the NAT Perverts have it on video. The DiL's are blackmailing S's Dad into helping with the will because he's got motive to whack Allison. She liked older guys, and she probably threatened to tell Spencer's Mom or her parents.
4. LAME! Kate was "babysitting" the dress. Kate got Hannah drunk. Kate left Hannah alone with the dress. Therefore Kate is responsible for ruining the dress.
5. What happened to the Doc? Who is A?


What was your favorite scene?
Dr. Sullivan investigating, circling stuffs, comparing pictures, and then with her magic words, "I know this person!". Best scene in the whole season 2. Were you happy to see Maya again?
Maya always creeps me out. She can't be a human, right? I mean her aura, her all mushy attitude. She must be a witch. Oh well, she's one in Vampire Diaries. What secret is Spencer's father hiding?
Alison is Spencer's father's daughter with Jason's mother and Jason has been blackmailing him. Kate's plan for vengeance: So cruel, or so lame?
On a scale of cruelness 1-10, the plan comes off as 0. At least, Jenny Humphrey is a better schemer. What is the one question you hope gets answered on the midseason finale?
Mike's big secret. We've seen the impact now we want it out. C'mon, Mike! Spill!


wouldnt it be funny if ARIAS DAD was JASONS DAD. lolololol. i actually need them to reveal who A is or i will actually burst. is it bad that for the past few days i have been pausing on A's file to find out as much as i can about them? too weird? ok. im so glad they brought emaya back, i didnt like them the first time round but now im a huge shipper. also i thought emily went for 'ballsye' women? i cant quite see how samara was.. too plain for me, i miss claire holt being a mermaid anyway:(
