Pretty Little Liars - Moments Later recap/review

When we last left the four Pretty Little Liars, Hanna (Leeard’s favorite character), Aria (our least favorite character), Emily, and Spencer (Ern’s favorite character), drama was pretty high. Hanna had just gotten hit by a car, Hanna’s mom had stolen lots of cash, Aria had just been seen (by a mysterious someone) kissing Mr. Fitz, Emily’s mom saw the pictures of Emily kissing Maya, Toby got arrested, and Spencer saw a carving in a tree trunk that indicated that Alison had a relationship with Ian.

At the start of this episode, Hanna’s mom was informed by a cop that Hanna was hurt. Her mom went to the hospital and questioned the other three girls about what happened and got nothing. Hanna woke up with some broken bones and informed the girls that Noel is A. Our first response was: who the f is Noel? And then we remembered. Noel is the guy crushing on Aria that Hanna tried to set Aria up with. Hanna saw Noel writing “I SEE YOU” on Ezra Fits’ car. Aria confronted him, and he said that he was just at Camp Mona to pull pranks on girls and have fun in the woods. He saw Aria kissing her teacher and wrote the warning (probably out of jealousy). Noel offered to stand up for Aria in front of the principal if Mr. Fitz was forcing Aria to have a romantic relationship. Aww, we like Noel better now. Aria asked Noel not to say anything.

So that means we still don’t know who A is. Ughh. Which is creepy, because he/she snuck into Hanna’s hospital room at night and wrote, “Sorry I lost my temper. My bad. Love, – A” on Hanna’s cast. This freaked all the girls out, but we kinda loved it. If A tried to kill Hanna because she "knew too much" and she doesn't really know who A is, what DOES Hanna know that Hanna is missing?

Lucas (the nerdy guy who is friends with Hanna) came into Hanna’s room at night and gave her a kiss while she pretended to be sleeping. During a daylight hospital visit, Hanna questioned Lucas about it and told her that she just wanted to be friends. Lucas left, upset. Bad move, Hanna. That guy would be so great to you. We were impressed that he wasn't willing to pretend that he's okay with their relationship, though. We love honest people.

Hanna also had a creepy dream about Alison coming as a ghost and giving guidance. Alison said that Hanna should start lying more, that telling the truth is what got Alison killed, and that if the girls put their heads together, they could figure out what happened the night Alison died.

Ian and Spencer’s icky sister eloped. The girls decided that there is more than one A, including Alison’s murderer. Mr. Fitz and Aria had some “sweet” moments. Is anyone else ready for them to get caught by parents? Even if he’s cute, it’s not ok. It's illegal. Emily tried to see Toby to explain that she didn’t turn him in, but Jenna wouldn’t let her. Emily called Jenna out for her creepy relationship with Toby. Emily’s dad came upstairs to question her about Toby, and Emily told her dad that she was gay. Emily’s dad was not happy, but he was willing to accept Emily’s decisions and needs. Emily’s mother wanted to take a harder stance against Emily’s homosexuality, but the dad stood up for Emily, saying that she is alive and healthy, and after what he’s seen in war, that counts for a lot. It was sad to see neither parent take the stance that Emily’s relationship was ok, but the dad telling the mom that it’s “who she is” is acceptable, for now. It's better than a lot of girls would get from their dads after telling them this kind of news.

We liked this premiere and there was good direction, but the show can be better. We're glad to have it back.

Episode Grade: B+

This episode is on hulu


  1. I think I'm with Leeard on Hanna. She started out a little obnoxious, but grew into a bona fide good character (can we get a slow hand clap for Ashley Benson, please?). Aria is the worst one for certes. Cat's least favorite TV trend for 2010 = students dating teachers.

    Yes, who the f is Noel, indeed.

    The reason Spenser's sister is so icky is because she played a great psycho on One Tree Hill. You can't act through crazy eyes in all your characters.

  2. Hanna is Ern's second favorite. We want to youtube the One Tree Hill psycho now.
