TV Time: Pretty Little Liars 4×06 “Under the Gun”

The episodes starts off with the aftermath of Hanna’s arrest, with further investigation about Wilden, and the Liars trying to learn more about the summer before Ali disappeared. This episode also looked PLL, to its spin-off Ravenswood.

[minor spoilers]

This episode had quite a lot going on, but it wasn’t overly intense. Aria and Hanna both ended up with emotional messes.

Mona returned to Rosewood and outed Spencer and Toby on their secret. The Liars were upset (which they had every right to be), and things weren’t looking good for Spencer. This took a toll on Spoby’s relationship which can be seen when they enter Ravenswood to hunt down Grunwald so that Spencer could clear her guilty conscious, and regain her friends’ trust. I had such high expectations for the introduction to Ravenswood, but I was seriously let down. The town of Ravenswood had a supernatural vibe, and it didn’t fit well with the more “realistic” vibe of PLL. The colouring was misty, and the music was creepy but it did nothing to peak any interest in watching Ravenswood. If I’m going to watch it, it’s going to be for Tyler Blackburn.

Hanna’s emotional state continued in a downwards spiral. Her dad gets involved, and it’s all a huge mess. Ashley denies killing Wilden, and I believe her story. Since when has A ever passed up an opportunity to frame someone else for their dirty work?

Aria also had an emotional storyline. The minute it was set in motion, I knew it was only going to backfire on her, and it did. I wanted to be sympathetic, but couldn’t manage it, because it’s time that Aria goes through some consequences for her actions. (Mike is so stupid though. Not sure why he would spill the beans to his teammates.)

Emily and Spencer made up from the previous episode, but were split apart again, due to Spencer’s secret-keeping. Emily was certain that the RV would’ve helped Hanna, and decided to take action. Of course, that only sent her in the direction of trouble, and by the looks of it, the path continues into the next episode. (I saw this coming.)

Shana was being her creepy self, and I can’t wait for her to disappear, like most PLL side-characters do.

I would say that this episode was an improvement for season four, but it didn’t meet my expectations. It was an entertaining episode all the same.

I rate this episode 3.5/5 stars!

Menchies Disaster

My friend and I went to Menchies today (it’s a froyo chain, incase you didn’t know), and it was a total disaster! Well, maybe not a total disaster…

My friends and I have decided to start a private vlog channel on youtube, to watch videos of our mishaps, and trips gone wrong, for us to watch and laugh at when we get older. My friend and I were “vlogging” at Menchies but it was incredibly awkward. The person who worked there kept talking to us, and I wasn’t sure how to get out of it. She also kept making suggestions, and I was screaming in my head for her to shut up, but I didn’t want to be rude, so I didn’t ignore her.

The whole reason I wanted to go the Menchies was because I had $5 on my Menchies points card that I wanted to use. Unfortunately I couldn’t enjoy my froyo the way I wanted, since the chocolate and vanilla flavours I wanted to swirl were liquidy. My froyo resembled soup.

Menchies Run 002

The flavours I got where Cookies ‘n Cream, Smurfs Blue Raspberry, (Unintentionally) Liquid Chocolate & Vanilla, with some sprinkles, chocolate malt balls, cookies ‘n cream, and rosebuds.

My friend and I continued our vlogging attempt in the next door Shopper’s Drug Mart, where we fooled around. When we got outside, it was pouring rain! My friend only had a hoodie, while I had one umbrella, and a gigantic bag. We had to awkwardly huddle under my umbrella and walk home. We then turned into the library so I can pick up my books that were mailed for me, before heading back home. My friend had to pass my house before walking 15 minutes to get to hers, so I kindly handed her my umbrella.

All in all, it was a very eventful day.

Menchies Run 014

This was the smallest puddle I came across. I wish that I’d taken pictures of the MUCH larger puddles, but I probably would’ve dropped my camera. The puddles were so big that the water went to my shins. My socks, and shoes were soaking wet, along with my shirt and capris. I’d basically taken a shower in the outdoors. It was disgusting, but my friend and I managed to laugh our way home.

Hope you all had a lovely Friday!
