Pretty Little Liars- Season 3, episode 14

She's Better Now- FINALLY. Not only is this show back, but Mona is back at Rosewood. Actually, what the eff? In what world would Mona be allowed to go back to Rosewood? She would have to be in treatment for years. No one can cure crazy in a couple of months. After someone knifes a cow brain into Mona's locker, she stalks around the school hallways way too slowly to get to the trash can. She's secretly relishing everyone's fear of her.



The girls are having less fun. They seem more paranoid and surly than ever. The first few scenes were just a depressing grump fest. It took half the episode for things to pick up for us. We need to see how hurt Meredith is. Did Mona set fire to the building Meredith was in? Did she do it to make things up to the four Liars and especially Hanna?

More importantly, what's with this grandma? Where is Ashley. Did they tell us weeks ago and we just forgot? We grimaced in the beginning when the grandmother urged Hanna to give Mona a second chance. We are all about forgiveness, but if someone tried to kill one of your friends and terrorized you for months, you need to keep a safe distance. We're glad Mona's pathetic video changed the grandma's mind.

Now on the list of people who can't have killed Alison is Byron Montgomery, which isn't very interesting, because it's not like we ever suspected him. Hated him, yes. Suspected him, no. But yeah, it's never one of the Liars' red herrings. The new janitor is perfectly cast to look disgusting, nerdy (the bad kind of nerd), and dangerous. If you don't remember where we've seen him before, he was the manager at the motel where Mona had her fabulous A lair.

We kind of wanted Emily to tell her dad what's been going on. We would do it, but we would preface it with, "I'll tell you what's happening as long as I have your word that I can stay here and face it, and you won't send me away." We don't know how good Emily's dad's word is, but he was in the military, and don't they care about honor and all that?

The big reveal of the night was that Jason, Spencer's brother, is the baddie Aria stabbed on the train on Halloween. The hole in his side is from that screwdriver. So what's Lucas up to? Oh yeah, getting run down by Toby. We feel so bad for Spencer. She's going to find out Toby is in the A Team, and THEN she's going to find out that Jason and Mona are helping each other with something secretly.

What we need from this show is for people to start finding out what the audience knows. Spencer needs to catch onto Toby's sinister ways. Aria needs to nut up and tell Ezra about his son, or A needs to do it for them. Or Aria needs to bang Wesley. Any of these things would please us. For now, it looks like the A Team is having internal conflicts (Toby trying to run over Lucas; everyone acting sketchy). Maybe only some of them are accepting Mona back.

Does this episode confirm that Toby, Jason, Mona, and Lucas are either in, or somehow involved with, the A Team? Who was that poor chubby guy on the bike? How big is the A Team? Why did Aria need that ONE diary page that they had already read? It's like they don't even want answers. This show might be a tad too confusing and might have too many details. We love following them though.

Episode grade: B

  1. Thought this was a very good episode. I'm so glad PLL is back! I don't know why, but I was shocked by the revelation that Jason tried to kill Aria. I guess I thought he might be a good guy. Oddly enough, I found myself feeling sorry for Mona...

    1. I was pretty shocked too, but no way am I feeling sorry for Mona. If it were a real turnaround/progress, then maybe. But you know she's still in the A Team.

  2. Love your blog! Just found it! I enjoyed the episode very much! It would be totally awesome if you could check out my blog? Thanks XO http://pretty-little-recaps.blogspot.com/

  3. I totally was falling for Jason's nice guy act, but he didn't even get along with Alison and was a member of the NAT club, so we can't count him out just yet.

    I agree, I hate when they take too long to buck up and confront people! Aria needs to tell Ezra about his kid otherwise it's going to blow up.

    Doesn't it also seem like anyone and everyone that surrounds the "liars" is a candidate for Alison's killer OR the A team? I pretty much suspect every secondary character that is introduced on this show.

    1. Only Caleb is legit, and even he worked for Jenna for a while.
