Pretty Little Liars Review: Just Keep Swimming

at . Comments

"Into the Deep" continued this season's trend of offering the audience very little until the very end.

But, unlike last week's dull entry, this Pretty Little Liars installment managed to be mildly entertaining.

That was mostly because there was some realistic drama going on between Paige and Emily, as well as some sweet moments between Ashley and Ted. Unfortunately, this episode seemed to mark the beginning of the end for this loving pair.

Emily's future has been in question ever since her accident in "Turn of the Shoe," and it doesn't look like it's getting any clearer. Paige's attempt to help Emily was really sweet, but it definitely exposed her insecurities about their future. It was heartbreaking to watch the two realize that without Stanford, Emily and Paige will drift apart next year.

But does that mean they are breaking up soon?

Ashley and Pastor Ted had great reunion this week. After being absent for so long, Ted swooped in to show his faith in Ashley by not only putting up the bail, but attempting to rekindle their relationship. Things sure are looking up for Ashley!

The relationship ups and downs of Emily and Ashley weren't the only ones explored this week...but they were the only ones I cared about. Ezra and Maggie are gearing up for a dull custody battle, which I think might be more of way to pave the way for an Ezria reunion.

And speaking of Aria, she's finally opened to a relationship with Jake, but only after getting jealous while watching another girl flirt with him. I really don't trust Jake. He just happened to be outdoors when Emily made the dramatic discovery at the episode's end. What was he doing out there?

Did anyone else think Jenna was dead? Her eyes were open and unfocused before that commercial break, but then she was recovering when we came back. Way to build the tension!

Jenna was sticking by Shana's side, for protection it seemed. Jenna mentioned the cops questioning her and dropped Alison's name, but Shana claims that Jenna was scared of CeCe Drake and that Ali was definitely dead. Did Jenna know something she shouldn't? I guess it'll be awhile before we know.

With Ian, Garrett and Wilden dead (and attempt on Jenna's life), all signs seem to point to CeCe. The phone number in New York was traced to a forwarding address in Philadelphia. Wasn't Melissa in Philly

Red Coat has also returned, and it seems pretty clear that Red Coat and A are separate entities since both were seen in separate locations in the episode's final scenes. Does anyone know what house Red Coat was sneaking under?

And what's Mona's endgame? It's clear she has some kind of plan, but what is it?

Hey, Paige, I thought you might want to know that Bridget Mu's in your kitchen; she's trying to make a bong out of your aunt's teapot.


Jenna's back, and she's knocking into walls.
