Pretty Little Liars Round Table: "Save the Date"
Someone is on Caleb's trail, Aria might have interest in Jason and... what was up with that scene in the morgue?!?
All of these questions are on the minds of TV Fanatic staff writers Matt, Carissa and Teresa this week, as we delve into another edition of the Pretty Little Liars Round Table. Come along and share your feedback on the following, "Save the Date" related topics now...
Is Aria seriously considering Jason as a potential boyfriend?
Matt: Of course she is. Chalk it up to the hair, the muscles or Aria's attraction to a men that dig ditches, black out and rarely smile, but there's something between these two.
Carissa: I don't know why the powers that be think Ezra and Aria should be together, but I think that's the way it will go, even though I want Aria to find someone more suitable. At least she seems torn at the moment. If writers weren't pulling her strings, I think she would choose Jason.
Teresa: I don't think she's really in that mindset yet. She's definitely attracted (who wouldn't be?) and he's been able to comfort her about her brother in a way that Ezra can't. I don't think she's really given much thought to how serious it could get and how much trouble it would cause for her relationship and for the girls if he turns out to be dangerous.
If it's not the police following Caleb, who is it, and why?
Matt: It's gotta be my wife. She's way too smitten with that guy. Darn your dimpled chin, Caleb!
Carissa: Because Caleb's real family is such a mystery, my guess now is that this person is somehow connected to Rosewood and we have a big secret in store. When Hanna confronted the follower, it made whoever was in the car think Caleb didn't want to hear from him/her. But he doesn't even know who it is. I'm up for a new mystery, and less focus on A.
Teresa: The stranger in the car has to be someone in Caleb's family. It's likely that one of his parents wants to reconnect.
Will the parents ever understand the severity of the situation their girls are in?
Matt: No. It's pretty much a teen soap opera rule that parents aren't permitted to actually parent in any useful way. Gotta love how 90210 embraced this idea and has not ditched the adults entirely.
Carissa: It's all getting a bit scary, isn't it? Emily's father took the situation very well, but as a whole, I keep wishing the adults would see a pattern. Yes, I know that would put a crimp in the whole mystery - but they are so in the dark that I am finding it harder to respect them each week.
Teresa: They seem to be getting wise to the real danger that follows their girls around, especially Hanna's mom. But being worried about their safety doesn't mean they know how involved their daughters really are in this mess.
Which is worse: Eating a cookie while doing an autopsy or while emptying trash bins?
Matt: Gonna go out on a limb here: anything one does while in the middle of an autopsy is grosser than when one commits the same act while doing anything else.
Carissa: I was right there with Aria when she disgusted at the plate of cookies in the morgue. But seeing the man using one hand to tie up a bag of trash and another to eat a cookie literally made me gag. No dessert is so good that it can't wait until your hand is out of the trash!
Teresa: Hmmm... I just thought it was weird to eat cookies with latex gloves on. Oreos and rubber just doesn't seem like a good combination.
Consider the morgue scene. Is A a man or a woman?
Matt: Neither. A is clearly a robot of some kind. This stalker lies calmly with corpses, manipulates all kinds of technology and is somewhere everywhere, at all times. If A isn't revealed to be of another species, I'll be very disappointed.
Carissa: Whoever was under the sheet was definitely a female. There is no doubt in my mind.
Teresa: Either way, A is definitely strong-willed. It takes a lot of guts to lay perfectly still around a bunch of dead bodies. But, for some reason, I've always thought of A as a woman, mostly because of the over-the-top theatrics.
