Pretty Little Liars Review: CeCe's Revenge?

by at . Comments

I hate to be a viewer who complains week after week about the lack of progress on a show and then grumbles when too much stuff happens....

BUT what's the deal Pretty Little Liars?

Hanna and Caleb in the Kitchen

"The Mirror Has Three Faces" broke the routine of dull episodes and gave us a lot of information. In fact, there was a little too much crammed into this overstuffed episode. Can't the series parcel out interesting reveals on a more steady basis? Why do we always have to wait until close to the end of the season for anything to happen?

But I wonder: did we really make any progress tonight?

In preparation for World War A, the writers are really playing up the CeCe Drake angle. Caleb's sleuthing traced the Philly P.O. Box to a physical address, which Aria investigated. The girl moving out claimed the CeCe was her former roommate. More interestingly, the roommate claimed that Ali got CeCe kicked out of UPenn. Remember that incident from "The Bad Seed?" Alison seemed to yearn for a rival for Ian's attention down the stairs. Well, apparently, CeCe thinks all the liars were responsible.

And Mrs. DiLaurentis told Spencer and Hanna that the CeCe and Ali's friendship became toxic. Yes, Cali became rather codependent, trading clothes, makeup and even personalities.

Does that mean that CeCe is Red Coat? Has she been trolling around Rosewood in an Ali mask?

I think she has some very important information for the liars, but I'm not ready to call her Red Coat yet. Experience has taught me to not trust the information the show gives us.

In addition, we've gotten some pretty solid evidence that Wren should not be trusted. I already thought he was super sketchy after he made moves on both Spencer and Hanna, but now it appears that he's manipulating Mona's situation...but for who's sake?

Clearly, he set up Mrs. Hastings by going to "warn" her about Mona's intentions, and Mona suspects that his loyalties lie with the other side, but is he working for Red Coat? Or A? Perhaps he's part of the A-team or one of the many men that Red Coat uses to make the girls' lives miserable.

In other creepy news, Mrs. DiLaurentis discovered that someone was living under her house, as we saw last week, but only Emily noticed the holes drilled into the floor. Plus, it looks like Ashley's muddy Manolo's are going to show up at the Fields house. Will Ashley be returning to jail?

On the boring side of the evening, Ezra found out that Malcolm is not his child, so really what was the point of that plot thread? For her part, Aria seems committed to moving on with Jake, even ignoring Ezra's call. But now the biggest obstacle to their relationship has been removed, I'm sure it won't be long before Ezria returns.

Who else wants to see that take place?

Seriously this show is getting ridiculous! The Ezra thing was soo predictable! I think the writers realised what a mistake it was to give Ezra a kid so they retconned him out of it.
Aria continues to be the worst character, she does nothing, suffers nothing, and is completely useless except for getting a boyfriend and dressing up!
I swear if the CC Drake thing turns out to be a "plot twist" revolving around Courtney i'll be pissed. Its a little bit of a coinceidence that courtney and cc share the name intials: C.D?
Wren being shady? Like i care.
Tobys mother i'm so uninterested in!
At this point it looks like the writers are pulling ideas from their asses with no clue what to do next. A is not threatening, red coat has gotten old, the girls no longer go through character development.

Nothing new or shocking here except 1) Mrs D put Ali's room back wrong - the bed was on the wall across from the door and vanity, not the wall across from the windows; and 2)the random arm in the photo of young Ali and Mrs D - hello twin theory! Mrs D either know she's harboring someone or really is bat shit crazy, because if a homeless person were living there, they wouldn't leave stuff like a sleeping bag behind when they left.
Wren is sketchy? Yawn!
Malcom isn't Ezra's kid? Thanks for wasting our time. I weep for the hours I'll never get back.

i agree ezria just needs to end. Today when scandal after scandal comes out of teachers and students being caught in illicit relationships and having babies and what not, we should not be so accepting of Ezria I think it just gives out the wrong message to many teens. I know it is fiction but history has shown that teenagers are perceptive to what the media sells as cool and hip and this relationship should not be one of them. Otherwise good show

IMO, this show is still fantastic! I like it just as much as I did when it first aired. I loved seeing Lucy, Ian, Keegan, Troian win for their roles and the cast win this past weekend for Summer show and tv show!
Yes some episodes may not be as stellar as others but all in all it is a solid show! I look forward to it each week.

there was a hand in the picture of Ali and her mom as a child so they might be going the way of the books, alternatively the girl Ali actually pushed down the stairs was Meredith who then transferred to holis and got with brian as the first stage of her revenge against the girls and is now in cahoots with Cece

I liked this episode we found out some interesting stuff. I've never trusted wren but now he is actually giveing me a reason not to trust him. So Emily found the holes drilled in the floor but what I'm wondering is what are they for is it so that who Evers been living there could hear conversations? It seems like there setting up something so Ezria gets back together but I honestly don't want them to I think aria needs to move on and date some more I mean she's only in high school going to be in college she doesn't a very serious relationship like that she needs to date more. I can't wait till the next episode it looks good.
