Pretty Little Liars Review: Cabin Fever

by at . Comments

This was definitely the night for yelling at the television screen. From Spencer's close call in the locker room to Emily's ill-advised kiss with Nate, I couldn't help but shout at the Pretty Little Liars during some of the tensest moments onscreen.

"What Lies Beneath" begins to draw the mystery of Maya's killer to a close. With only two more week's until the summer finale, it's about time that we can cross some names off the very long list of suspects.

Hanna and Emily Investigate

After last week's unsatisfying round of the Kahn game, Spencer wanted more answers from Noel. Confronting him didn't seem to get his attention, but searching through his locker apparently worked. As Spencer watched the surveillance footage that was possibly sent by Noel, Hanna and Emily went to the cabin to look for whatever it was Maya wanted to share with Emily the night she died.

The two found a hidden room, which was obviously Maya's hangout when she ran away from home because her bag was there with an unused bus ticket. They might have found more pieces to the puzzle in that bag or in the room, but A decided to remind them that they were still very much in danger. Emily managed to get the two of them out, and Hanna somehow stabbed herself in the leg (another yelling at the screen moment!). The two found some interesting clues in that cabin, but Spencer's video footage proved to be the most helpful.

So, just what did the surveillance video prove? Well, apparently Garrett wasn't the last person to be seen with Maya alive because by the time she disappeared, he was already at Spencer's house. Noel and Jenna are in the clear as they had just entered the cabin when a mysterious someone grabbed Maya from behind. So, who was it? Wren, Ezra, Nate, Holden, Caleb, Toby... or Paige? 

Each of these characters appear to be suspects for the big betrayal, but who do you think it was?

Wren is highly suspicious to me. When Hanna tried to tell him that they couldn't get involved, he didn't seem too discouraged. He took advantage of the opportunity to spend time with her while he stitched up her wounded leg, making her dinner out of the questionable ingredients in her refrigerator. Wren's interest in Hanna, like his interest in Spencer, is just a little too convenient. Or maybe he just genuinely likes Hanna. But Hanna is wisely keeping her distance from him while also trying to keep her relationship with Caleb a secret from everyone.

Aside from all the trouble with the Kahn cabin and Wren's continuing advances on Hanna, there was another tense and frustrating scene between Emily and an increasingly unhinged Nate. He'd responded aggressively to Jenna earlier at the cafe and came by to explain that Maya's death was having a much more intense affect on his life than he thought. Emily was empathetic, having spent most of this summer season grieving for Maya. And then Nate kissed Emily....what?!?

It wasn't so surprising that Nate kissed her, especially since he has flirted pretty heavily with Emily. But it was shocking that Emily let it go on for so long. Plus, Nate's anger at Jenna and his aggressiveness with Emily make him even more suspicious.

And then Paige saw the two of them kissing! She looked incredibly pissed and despite her illness excuse, Emily seemed to sense that something was up. This scene not only made me upset with Emily for both leading on Nate and disappointing Paige, but it made me realize just how intense Paige can be. Could she be A?

On a brighter note, I loved the interactions between Zack and Ella! They seemed to complement each other perfectly, and now that Ella has decided to date him exclusively, their relationship should be fun to watch in the coming weeks.

I don't understand, what are the clues that point to Ezra being A? I feel like he's just eye candy, not a major part of the storyline

I have a feeling that in the season finale Hanna's mom is going to die. I think she probably found out something concerning A or something else and A is going to kill her. I think that Emily is going to be the one to find Hanna's mom and that's why she has the blood on her hands in the pictures. Hanna is sobbing in the pictures. Spencer and Aria are just comforting her, not crying.
I also think that Nate killed Maya. I think he is the guy who was stalking her and he is not her cousin! I feel like Paige is way too obvious to be A. I don't know who A is going to be in this finale though...

ok - seriously. Obviously Noel let Maya stay at the cabin! Why wouldn't he have told the police that when she was missing. Why not search the room? Why not give that tape to the police? None of that makes any sense...

I'm so done with erzia boring just end it already bring back Jason!!!! Jaria was 100% more interesting. I love Wren I hope Wren isn't A. I wish Wren & Jason even Noel and Cece were season regulars cause they are all intersting and I enjoy their screen time.. I like to see more wrencer but if Spencer with Toby than I like to see Wren & Hannah! I loved hannahs pink jeans random just saying. I don't think Toby, Wren or Jason have anything to do with A but I think its paige? I.hope its erzia so he.can go away

I think Nate killed Maya because Maya said she has a stalker boyfriend from When she went to true North and I think he was the Boy she dated. And he killed Maya because she turned him down for emily so he got angry because like I said before she turned him down so he went to rosewood killed Maya then he got close to emily so she would believe he is her cousin and she would earn his trust. BTW I feel really bad for em because the 2 mai au

Are you kidding me with all this Wren stuff? He is no older than Ezra, and if he were to have a relationship with any of the girls it would be looked upon better than Ezra's relationship with Aria. And he is obviously just attracted to these girls because of how great they are! I get his interest in Spencer more and I do think its strange that he moved on to Hanna. I love having him around, but Hanna needs to stay with Caleb, that boy would die for her! Nate and Paige are both weird, my money is on one of them for being the killer!

Their is nothing boring about Aria and Ezra at all and they belong together they won't break up and I also don't believe he is part if the A team at all I don't buy that at all. I am leaning toward Nate and Paige. I don't have any idea who betrays them I just don't think it is Ezra Caleb Toby or any of the liars. Ezra would only be a betrayer for Aria same with Toby for Spencer and Caleb for Hannah. So I am going to have to wait and see
