Pretty Little Liars - Careful What You Wish For recap/review

This episode featured a school dance marathon, but instead of having to dance all night, people just got sponsors for number of dances they did with someone else. It made Leeard miss Gilmore Girls.

Aria’s mom brought Aria’s childhood babysitter, Simone, back to town to speak to her students, because the Simone is now a writer in New York City. Aria’s mom tried to hook Simone up with Mr. Fitz. Aria was disturbed, because Simone was nice, pretty, smart, and Mr. Fitz’s age. But, like predators everywhere, Mr. Fitz was only interested in wide-eyed, innocent lambs, so Aria kept her “man,” after some jealousy drama. Aria’s mom chaperoned and danced with Aria’s dad, but they did not get back together.

Maya’s parents had her cell phone programmed so that she could only make and receive calls from her parents. Hanna found a technology nerd for Emily to pay for programming Emily’s phone to be able to reach Maya’s. The tech nerd was decent-looking and offered to help Spencer break into Ian's desk at school (he's a coach), so we think that we can expect him to stick around. He could be useful ... When Emily spoke to Maya, she was upset that Maya didn’t sound like herself. She was already sounding hollow and brainwashed. At the dance marathon, Emily grabbed Hanna’s flask and got wasted.

Spencer spent most of the episode looking for her laptop, which was stolen, probably by Ian. Ian returned the laptop, but the video of him with Alison was gone, so the girls couldn’t give it to the police to free Toby. But there WAS a new picture of Alison the night of her murder, heading off into the night. A shadow followed her.

Hanna tried to get a job to get money for her family, but she had no luck. But at the dance, A texted Hanna, offering her hundreds of dollars for each dance with sad old Lucas. Hanna did it, and her jock boyfriend, Sean, broke up with her after she spent most of the night with her arms around Lucas. Emily reamed Hanna for toying with Lucas and told her that she was worse that Alison. Then Emily went up to Ian and said something like, “We all know what you did.” Spencer tried to convince him that Emily was talking about how he and Spencer had romantic encounters, but we don’t think he bought it.

After the night’s happenings, Lucas thought he had a chance with Hanna and asked to take her home. Hanna shot him down, saying that she promised her girlfriends she would ride home with them. Emily apologized to Hanna for what she said at the dance marathon, but Hanna agreed that she was horrible. At least she had hundreds of dollars for her family’s financial woes….

The episode ended with A (not shown, obviously) walking up to Aria’s mom after the dance to get black leather gloves and a black leather coat out of the coat-check. Aria’s mom spoke to A in a way that made it clear that she knows A and likes him/her enough to be friendly.

This episode felt a little frantic, but there was definitely a lot of drama and happenings. It was completely enjoyable. We even liked watching Aria almost blow her cover trying to take down Simone in a rage. We wish Aria had something else to do besides date Mr. Fitz. They need to get caught already.

Episode grade: A


  1. I disagree with u about Aria & Mr Fitz...I think their inappropriate relationship adds alot of dram/suspense to the show!

  2. We dislike it because the plot has been used so many times on TV before. We will change our minds if it ends in a way that is really interesting. It all depends on where they take it.

    We can't feel the suspense, because we don't think the show has the balls to end it in a dramatic way where they get caught, someone goes to jail, someone dies, etc. There's no risk.

    As far as the romance goes, we can't get into that or root for them. In real life, this would be totally creepy and wrong. SO many people are into them though. They've even made fan videos on youtube.

  3. I don't know...What are their ages supposed to be? 16 & 24? You are right about that being inappropriate in real life. I'm not sure why it doesn't annoy me b/c it has been used so much! I guess we'll see what happens =)

  4. In real life, a teacher dating a high school student like that is a serious abuse of power and there is something weird going on in the guy's head. Sometimes we can separate fiction from reality enough to enjoy things (like when the show 24 got really unrealistic, we just went with it). Something that comes close to molestation? Not so much.
