Pretty Little Liars Round Table: "Touched by an 'A'-ngel"

at . Comments

Welcome to the latest edition of the Pretty Little Liars Round Table.

In this installment, Editor-in-Chief Matt Richenthal breaks down developments from the latest episode - Emily's torment, Hanna's new nemesis and more - along with staff members Carissa Pavlica and Teresa Lopez. Come join us, won't you?


What was your favorite scene?
Matt: Aria sorting through Ali's memory box. It's nice to stop for a moment and remember a close friend of the Liars is dead. The only emotion running rampant shouldn't be fear.

Carissa: Poor Hanna telling the world exactly what she thought about Kate and her obnoxious family at the stables. I'm sick of our Liars being pushed around. I want Kate to go DOWN.

Teresa: Agreed. Watching Hanna get caught in full on bitch-mode was pretty satisfying, especially when it was followed up by the equally bitchy phone call from her soon-to-be stepsister. I like the way the show is setting up the future step-family drama.

What did the N.A.T. club actually do?
Matt: Not much. Members spent most of their time at the library, looking through Latin dictionaries for the most confusing club name. I think mea navis aƫricumbens anguillis abundat was the second choice. (Look it up, readers.)

Carissa: This is like a quiz as to whether or not I was paying close enough attention, and I refuse to answer on the grounds that I may incriminate myself. Tossing acronyms around. What is this? CIA interrogation?!?

Teresa: I'm betting they filmed all the young girls in town and made money off the videos on the internet. Or something equally sketchy.

More useless character: Mike or Dr. Sullivan?
Matt: Dr. Sullivan, no doubt. Mike gives his parents something to be concerned over at least. Sully (she hates being called that!) is just around to make us believe there's a responsible adult in town. But we know better.

Carissa: Mike. They should have put him up for adoption. If he walked up to me on the street, I wouldn't recognize him, nor would I care to. Aria should have been an only child.

Teresa: Well, Mike is supposed to teach us a very important lesson about the dangers of teenage depression (at least that's where this character arc seems to be heading). HOWEVER, he's not very relevant to the show's primary mystery. Sullivan might actually turn out to be useful, once Emily finally loses it.

Is Emily overreacting?
Matt: Totally. She was eating Alpha-Bits, right? So one box happened to be full of As. Big deal. I'd only be concerned if they showed up in a bowl of Special K.

Carissa: Heck no! Getting a massage is daring enough. Knowing A's hands were on your back? Good God! She should have seen shoes, however, and known whether it was a man or a woman. She should have been astute enough to come out of it with at least one clue!

Teresa: Nope. Not one bit. It feels like A is picking on her more than any of the other girls. Hanna was hit by car, but only because she was too close to the truth. Emily's life and career are in serious danger.

What are Aria and Ezra's survival odds this week?
Matt: On a scale of 1-10? Let's go with 8. Ezra actually took a positive step here. The odds of him ending up in jail for sleeping with an underage former student, though? Not nearly as high, unfortunately.

Carissa: If I were writing the show, they would be zero. The pedophilia in Rosewood is running rampant. From teachers to the police, authority is being abused. When Aria's mom said "I would be disappointed," I thought... that's all?? A teacher is having an affair with a student and you'd be disappointed?!?!? Might as well pick one out of the bunch for yourself, Ella, if you'll only be disappointed in yourself.

Teresa: Much better than last week, especially when Ezra showed up to "save" Aria and really fight for their relationship. Although they do need to wake up to the reality of their situation. It's not okay for high school teachers to date their students and if anyone finds out, there could be trouble.


I think dr.sullvin was -as biggst problum to keep there identie form them !


I'm glad the commentators admit that Ezria are wrong. At least someone on this blog does.


What was your favorite scene?
Ezria scenes... What did the N.A.T. club actually do?
Stalk people? Pretend to be important? Spy on people? Idk its sounds weird to me... More useless character: Mike or Dr. Sullivan?
Dr. Sullivan- At least Mike is giving some drama tohis family. I think DR Sullivan will prob die soon since she knows too much in the next ep... Is Emily overreacting?
No- her reaction is totally justified. A is really messing with her with a whole season's worth of stalking/scaring.... What are Aria and Ezra's survival odds this week?
Um... I'd say 9 out of 10.... Of course they aren't going to break up! I realised that in the last ep after Jason kind of got out of the picture....


i just think that jason is HOTTER than ezra. this ezra-aria relation is so BORING!


What was your favorite scene?
Emily again. Getting massaged by A. Hey turns out A is one talented masseur. Didn't see that one coming. Other than that, Jackie telling Aria to grow up is awesome! Way to go, Jackie! What did the N.A.T. club actually do?
They sing and dance around. Compete in Regionals then Nationals. Oh wait! I thought you said Glee Club. More useless character: Mike or Dr. Sullivan?
Dr. Sullivan. She should have realized up to this point that the girls were not ready to open up to her. A clever therapist should've found another way to approach the girls. But she used old technique, "Try me." Is Emily overreacting?
No, I would freak out if I were her too. Yuck. At least, the massage is good. What are Aria and Ezra's survival odds this week?
Another trap question! I'm not answering this. Ezria forever.


I am all for Ezra and Aria. I'm rooting for this couple. Truthfully they are the reason I watch the show. And no, I don't think it's pedophilia. I mean think about it, how old is Jason. He can't be much younger than Ezra. He is Ian's age, Ian is out of college, I bet they are close to the same age. If he and Aria got together, it would be a very similiar situation. I totally agree with the last posting from N. I remember rumors of this stuff too when I was in high school.
As for the comment that Ezra and Aria woke up in bed together. It was a dream, it wasn't real!


*Nadia, sorry.


Okay, maybe I'm crazy, but I really can't see what's so wrong with the Ezra/Aria relationship.
She's 16, so it's legal.
They haven't had sex, so it's not a crime.
They met before they knew their exact ages and the fact that he was going to be her teacher, so it's not abuse of power.
They're in love, and not in an unhealthy way.
Naida, you kept saying "if this relationship happened in the real world", but it HAS happened ! Sure, it's not something considered normal, but when I was in high school I remember hearing a few stories of this kind, and it never became a law suit !


Has it actually been confirmed that Ezra and Aria had sex? We can just assume they did, but has it been said or shown in the show that they have? Because if it hasn't there is no proof to that statement.


lets face it, all the men on there are pedophiles then.
Jason kiss Aria.
Aria dad made out with a student of his.
Ian been secretly making out with Alison.
Garett been going with Jenna.
Ezra is with Aria. If that is the case you are making then every single one of them should be in jail. I love Ezria and always will and they did not have sex so I don't see the big problem.
