Pretty Little Liars Round Table: "Miss Me x 100"

at .  Updated at . Comments

Welcome to the Pretty Little Liars Season 5 Episode 5 Round Table, PLL Fanatics!

Below, our panelists wonder... are A and Mona working together? What's up with Sydney being in Mona's Army? Ezria, Emison and the mysterious Bethany Young are also hot topics, as is the biggest shocker of the 100th episode.

Join TV Fanatics Teresa Lopez, Leigh Raines, Nick McHatton and Carissa Pavlica as they banter about those scintillating topics and join in by hitting us up in the comments!


A is back! Is it Mona or are they acting separately?

Teresa: I think Mona is working with the new A. Possibly giving him/her tips on how to freak people out with creepy dolls.

Leigh: Well it seemed like someone was approaching the picnic table with Mona, Sydney, and Jenna. So they are definitely all working together. Mona is SO unstable. Love how she was trying to convince herself and Ali at the church that she was fine.

Nick: I like to think there's always a grain of truth to everything Mona says and does. Her confrontation with Alison in the church, and the look on her face when Alison mentions what she has done to the girls feels rather sincere. I think she's very much in this with her army and that's it. She wants Alison gone. Mona, for now at least, does not seem to have any care in the world about going after the rest of the ladies. All this leads me to believe that A is working separately from Mona since Mona is only targeting Alison.

Carissa: I hope we think they're working together and then A blows Mona's house to bits or a Mona's Army cadet's car explodes and they're in it... that sort of thing.

PLL RT - depreciated -

What's your opinion on Sydney now?

Teresa: New people are always trouble! It's curious that she spends so much time trying to get Paige and Emily hanging out. Maybe that's part of the plan to separate Emily from Alison. Emily is very susceptible to Alison's manipulations (as we saw this week), so perhaps she's going to step up her efforts to get Paige and Emily together more often.

Leigh: That she's just as predictable as the rest of them. She better not hurt Emily.

Nick: Never had much of an opinion on her now, and now my only opinion is this: so typical. The new girl is working with someone else. How shocking! Although, the idea that Mona has moles with each of the liars is pretty genius. The way she matches Jenna as they meet Mona seems telling to me. Could they be related?

Carissa: I wonder if she was once blind and met Jenna in blind school. It would mean her "powers" of perception are enhanced like Jenna's. I agree with Teresa; Mona's using people to keep the Liars from getting close to Ali again, but it's not working.

Ezria and Emison are reunited. React!

Teresa: Emison was really troubling for me cause I could see Ali working on Emily from the very start. It really made me dislike the character more than I usually do. As for

Leigh: More predictable stuff! Ezria: duh. Hot scene though. Emison: I'm not really sure how into it Alison is and I don't want Em to get hurt.

Nick: Ezria was basically foretold the minute Aria began to lean on Ezra for her Shana "kill" but I have to admit I did enjoy them coming together again. As for Emison - I have no clue. I don't know if Ali is working Emily over, if there's some bisexual feelings, both, or none of the above.

Carissa: Ezria? Now that he seems like he's in high school again (kinda pathetic nerd boy act going on), I'm good with it. I'm really shocked Emily just went for it with Ali. I knew they had a thing, but it never hit me how into Ali Emily was. Poor thing.

Any idea on Bethany Young?

Teresa: If there's a God that listens to the pleas of the fandom, she must be Alison's random twin who spent all her time at Radley. Or maybe it goes back to that spooky little girl from Pretty Little Liars Season 3 Episode 13 or you know that other twin story in Pretty Little Liars Season 2 Episode 13.

Leigh: Didn't they mention Bethany's parents asking for privacy in the press conference? Either way, Mrs. D definitely knows her and I assume that the twin theory could be very on track. Or at least some relative. Maybe Bethany was the blonde that Toby's mom was warned about.

Nick: Lots of ideas, but of course nothing is ever concrete. The always popular twin theory is my guess here, but who is Bethany's twin remains unanswered. While I would love to see Courtney make a visit to Rosewood I'm beginning to wonder Bethany's related to Sydney. That would give her some purpose for joining up with Mona.

Carissa: Since she was 17 when she disappeared, she can't be Ali's twin, but I still think twins will play into it somehow. Bethany Young will have to be important -- we just have to wait to learn why.

Biggest shocker of the 100th episode?

Teresa: The fact that Hanna didn't puke after drinking all that punch? Nah, seriously, it was definitely that explosion at the end. Way to announce your return, A!

Leigh: Lucas's facial hair. No for real that explosion was NUTS.

Nick: The explosion! The ending felt like a rebirth. It's not the core group of ladies anymore. It's everyone in on the secret, and working very hard to find the truth.

Carissa: Nick, you put it really well. All of the kids are in on the secret and it's not just four phones ringing anymore. With everyone involved, it should be more intense. Not lies, just survival.

The girl was alive on their way to Ravenswood. She died in a car accident that Caleb and others were in at the end of the premiere. It was a supernatural show that picked up all of the hints dropped during the Halloween episode, etc., about Grunwald being haunted, etc.

A is back! Is it Mona or are they acting separately?
I do not think this A that has returned to Rosewood is Mona, but I do think Mona is working with this A. What's your opinion on Sydney now?
I should have known she was trouble. I was really hoping she would be there just to get Paige and Emily back together. Ezria and Emison are reunited. React!
I have always liked Ezria so I am on bored and that scene was hot! Ali is 100% using Emily to get her on her side, she knows that if Emily falls in love with her then she will side with Ali over Aria, Spencer and Hannah. Any idea on Bethany Young?
I know someone on the recap page commented that the reveal was a let down. This is PLL they would not have revealed the name if it was a let down. My first thought is that she is Alison's twin that was adopted by the Young family. So I am interested to see how that develops! Biggest shocker of the 100th episode?
The explosion...100%! It is funny because half way through this episode I said to myself that this show is now a drama not a suspense drama as there had been no A action and then at the end of the episode BOOM and then we see A is back.

First I must say I'm thrilled you introduced Discuss to your site! #ThumbsUp 1.Mona & "A"!?
I think Mona sought out "A" at this point. She is quite desperate and she knows how to contact "A". Can't wait for "A" to out smart Mona and set her up at some point. But if you think "A" was the 4th person to arrive at the secret meeting, my gut is saying that Caleb is part of Mona's minions. 2.Sydney!?
I'm so surprised how well Chloe is playing Sydney, Donna was such a stellar character and Sydney is quite different. I knew she was trouble but the story needs new characters I'm interested to see how well she is fitting the whole Jenna/A story.
3.Ezria and Emison!
I knew Ezria would get together at some point but still thought the would have a tougher time to get there.
Emison! Not a fan! I wasn't an Paige fan but I fall in love with her along the way and now I'm a Pemily fan all the way, 4.Bethany Young
Bethany is maybe even the reason "A" is hunting Alison. Maybe Ali did something to her and things got out of control. 5. Biggets shocker!
None! Really a bland episode. The thing that surprised me most is Caleb's adtitude, didn't watched Ravenswood so I don't know where that shit is coming from. Favorite moments: The Ali vs Mona. One of the most epic showdowns PLL ever gave to us. Just sad that Ali was so easily outsmarted.
Besides that their phones ringing was a nice touch.

LMAO at your comment on Caleb and Ravenswood. I watched the entire series (liked it better than PLL last year) and I still have no idea where the attitude is coming from. The girl Hanna asked about was killed and in ghost form the entire season (Hanna never knew) and all his friends were dealing with murders, creepy dreams and such. He saw Hanna a couple times and they ended on a decent note. Maybe he's pissed because he cut his hair. Who knows?!

Wasn't hat girl in the bus outside of Ravenswood with him? Somehow I didn't like Ravenswood premise and the way the took caleb away frm the show.
His currenta adtitude is probably part of not getting close to Hanna again plan. Stupid! But I hink he could be the mystery person wjo joined Mona, jenna and Sydney at their meeting, to protec Hanna from Alisn.
I hope he switches to normal soon.

The chick on Ravenswood was killed in the premiere. He had feelings for her, but she was a ghost, soooo... I never thought who it might be joining Mona. Not sure how I would feel about Caleb, even undercover.

This whole season feels so forced! Like they want to surprise us like they want to keep it interesting. But not working for me honestly. But still I'm hooked, cause I want the big answers to happen.
The show lost a lot of momentum and now bringing all hese people back, makes it just messy. Hoping for some real answers by midseason.

No offense, but if she's sad, she could cry in New York.


If the truth is the details, we still don't know what happened to her.
