Pretty Little Liars - That Girl Is Poison

In a welcome-but-curious development, Jenna reveals that she can see just in time for her birthday, so she can throw a party with a Wonderland theme at the Brew. That’s the coffee shop where Toby lives. Nice one, Jenna. This prompts Toby to spend the night of the party at Spencer’s, making out with her. Good choice, bro. Aria is all about going to the party and giving Jenna a second chance (with ulterior motives). Hanna is depressed and (temporarily) unfashionable, since she’s bummed about Caleb leaving her. Ashley Marin uses the opportunity to coerce Hanna into working at a rummage sale. Ashley finds a man there. Woo hoo! He seems nice and normal…for now. It is this show, after all.

Since Maya is dead, Emily goes for second-choice Paige, asking her to go with her to the Katy Perry movie. But Emily has to cancel and also has to work at Jenna’s party as a waitress in a clip-on tie. That would have been a perfect opportunity for a scene where Paige gets a real tie and puts it on Emily, but the show did not seek to please its lesbian fans with what would have been a sweet, simple moment. Instead, the writers bring back Crazy Paige who acts a fool and makes herself completely undesirable. After Emily gives Paige the flask from which she was drinking the night she ended up in the graveyard, Paige ends up drunk and belligerent.

But hey, we still like her better than Maya. The scene where she freaked out on Jenna, broke things, and stuck her fingers in all the cupcakes was the highlight of the night. Honorable mention for the scene where Aria tricked her old photography teacher by ruining her equipment. Now Aria has a new job, as well as evidence against this season’s second Red Herring, Lucas. Good job, Aria. There’s some Ezra stuff where he buys Aria a new camera, is poor, and has a new job, blahblahblah, die Ezra. Why are you still on this show? STILL? Spencer is still acting crazy, stalking Garrett’s hospitalized and comatose mother for information. She finds a message hidden in the mother’s wristband. Garrett has been using his visitation to pass notes to someone else. The note says that the proof is with “April Rose.” Dun dun dunnnn. This was a transitory, normal episode with some fun moments. Not the best though.

Episode grade: B


  1. I agree, not the best episode, but still good. Loved that Toby was back! And Spencer def had the best lines of the night. Talking about anthrax in the invitation envelopes...hilarious!

  2. Do you think Jane by design will get a season 2?

    1. Well, one of us definitely hopes so ....

      It's getting better ratings than Nine Lives of Chloe King did, but it's still not stellar in that department. We think it will get another season, but we wouldn't blame ABC Family for cancelling it. Leeard would miss it :(

  3. I really like Ezra so I hope it works out with Laurel as an assistant. Ezra's been through some tough times and is a good person, like in this episode when he gives what turns out to be a very expensive vintage camera to Aria. (Also loved the song that played during that scene, "Restless Dream" By Jack's Mannequin).

    Anyway, I hope Ezra's career settles down and it then allows him to have a happier personal life, too
