It was not a shock at all that A deleted all the texts from the girls phone's before they got a chance to use them. As soon as Hanna agreed to tell the truth I knew it was going to happen. Everyone did. Which makes it a really annoying plot device by the writers. Constantly we as fans are questioning why these girls don't just go to the police and thinking they are dumb, and finally, they get the courage to do what they haven't been willing to do before and they can't even do that? It made sense to me when A kept the girls in line with fear, but now A is just getting to all powerful. The girls should be given room to grow as characters, and getting the courage to finally stand up to A and go to the police is one of those ways they could grow. Also, the fact that no one has any PHYSICAL evidence they can use against A? Really? They all have gotten hand written notes at one time or another. They should have been saving them for a rainy day, because right now it is pouring. And Ezra. You stalked these girls for how long? Had multiple people watching them for you. You found no actual proof of A's existence during this time? I don't buy it. Hanna going to jail is ridiculous to me. It is quite convenient that Tanner found Mona's blood clothes with Hanna's blood on it. Yes I know we saw A plant the blood on it so I understand that part, but how did Tanner find these clothes? Were they just laying around somewhere? Were they given to her? I think that needs to be explained before I can get behind the storyline. Unless Tanner is the one behind all of this and setting the girls up. Also the big reason before that they thought Hanna was involved was because of the barrel yet they can't even ID the remains that are in the barrel?! Doesn't all the evidence seem a little too neat and tidy to the police? Wait who am I kidding. This is Rosewood PD we are talking about. Am I the only one who finds it weird that the two blondes are the ones going doing for this? Probably just me lol. The Ezria break up was much harder for me to swallow than I thought it would be, mostly because I FINALLY liked Ezra again this week. I feel like Aria blaming him and their relationship for why she missed out on the high school experience is a little ridiculous because once they were finally allowed to be open about their relationship they could have done normal things that a high school girl would do with her boyfriend and she didn't need to spend all her free time with him. That was her choice. If anything, she is the one to blame for missing out on high school, well and A. It also doesn't help me that she was kissing Andrew last week before her and Ezra even broke up. What is with these girls. Between her and Spencer I want to give them a smacking. Yes I absolutely loved seeing carefree Spencer when she was hanging out with Colin this week but break up with Toby. He may be a jerk right now but he doesn't deserve to be cheated on with TWO different guys! I was so happy to see Melissa back this week. She is definitely one of my favorites of the minor characters. This week made me really want to rule out both her and Wren as A suspects. Melissa has always seemed determined to get Spencer away from the A drama, so if she was A, wouldn't she just leave Spencer out of it? And if Wren is A I am pretty sure Melissa knows about it at this point so I don't think she would be okay with him targeting her sister. I too loved that Mama Hastings went to Mama Marin with the news about Hanna. I love when the moms of PLL come together.
This was really a fantastic premiere. I wasn't sure how I was going to like this show because I am not a fan of Juliette Lewis whatsoever but I have always been a big fan of Ryan Phillipe so I figured I would give it a shot. Thank god I did because I was not disappointed. No I still am not any more fond of Juliette Lewis than I was going in but that's okay. We don't have to like her character. I kind of get the feeling though that she had a child who was murdered. The look on her face when Ben said obviously you aren't a parent said a lot. I know it is probably far too early to be trying to figure out who did it but my main suspect is Christy. She has been helping the police along in their investigation each step of the way. She made a point to say in front of Cornell that Ben had one of those flashlights she showed them, she let the police into the house without a search warrant, she kept sending her lawyer friend who wasn't a criminal lawyer and really wouldn't be much help to Ben and he was the one who advised against giving a DNA sample which ended up making Ben look guiltier. Dave had a point when he brought up how did Scott find out about Ben being Tom's father. That means someone else had to know. My guess would be Christy. Yes we know that Ben just confessed to her about sleeping with jess the night before Tom died but we don't know why he confessed because why would he all of a sudden confess after 6 years? Maybe Christy is the one who brought it up because she found out somehow. Then again I could definitely be jumping to conclusion. My second suspect is one we haven't met yet: Matty's (I think that was his name) brother Tyler. Matty was asking for him and he is supposedly away and the mother said Matty was just confused but what if he isn't? What if he came back from wherever he was and he killed Tom and the mother knows so she sent him into hiding? Just my initial guesses. Great show all around and I can't wait to delve deeper into this mystery.
Alright I am fully prepared to be labeled an awful obnoxious shipper right now but I have to say my peace about this Stimmy situation. I feel like bringing back Stimmy was just a slap in the face by the writers. It felt like (and from what I have read many other fans feel the same) they were sick of Stimmy/Fiona shippers complaining about wanting Stimmy to return so they were like "Eff it. Let's bring him back and destroy all hope of them ending up together. Then maybe they will all finally shut up." The problem is I think they overestimate our ability to let go of Stimmy. Stimmy and Fiona were the heart of the show from day 1. The writers insisted on making him a complete jerk in season 3, probably because they wanted the fans to be okay with him being killed off, but that doesn't erase the first two seasons. Season 1 they were fantastic together. Season 3, let's be realistic, Fiona turned Stimmy into a glorified housewife and wasn't there for him. Yes, he cheated on her but I honestly don't fully blame him. If they were going to just bring Stimmy back to have Fiona reject him then they just should have just had him stay dead. I personally was starting to get used to the fact that he was gone and wasn't going to be coming back, and then the season 4 finale happened and I went right back to my Stimmy/Fiona shipping. In what world would Stimmy have given up as easily as he did in this episode? He wouldn't. If he is really the "selfish jerk" they want to portray him as he wouldn't have honored Fiona's wishes. He would have stuck around, integrated himself into her life and proved he could be the person she needed. But instead he just rides off on his motorcycle without really trying? Come on. The character that was in this episode didn't seem like the same character we saw in last week's episode. Plus the fact that we have no reason to root for her and Gus. Fiona can say she has changed and grown but really, she hasn't. Gus is just another nice guy that Fiona will eventually mess things up with because she isn't meant to be with the nice boring guy. The show is called Shameless for a reason. Okay rant over. On the other side of things: Mickey and Fiona need to have more scenes together because they have fantastic chemistry on screen. I hope once Ian is out him and Mickey integrate themselves into the Gallagher clan more. Love that Debbie is finally getting a real boyfriend that she doesn't have to rape into being with her (her words not mine lol). I just wish they would tone down her roid rage a little though. Sammi. My god she is a nut job. I mean we kind of always knew it but her daddy issues hit a whole new level this week. I am actually a little pleased that she shot Frank. But that scene after where he finally says he needs her and she flips on the crazy creeper switch. Wow. Can they please go back to giving Lip some interesting story lines once in a while. Does anyone really want to spend a whole episode watching him run around sorting financial issues? Really? Come on writers. The actor is so strong and his character has always been great. This season has just has been super boring for him. Now that I think about it so was last season. I get that his arc is about him overcoming his roots and becoming more than just another low life from his neighborhood but does it have to be soooooooooooooooooooo boring?! Can't he become intelligent and successful but still be that guy we knew and loved before. Maybe the problem is that the Gallagher family for the most part has been split up the past two seasons. And really they are better when they are together. I can't even talk about Vi and Kev because I will go into another rant.
