RECAP- Pretty Little Liars 4×06 Under The Gun

Last we seen Hanna she was being hauled in by the cops because they found her with her father’s gun. She spends the entire episode being held captive by her now ever-present father who is trying to keep their family intact. I love how when his ass on the line (for having an unlicensed gun) his daddy instincts kick in. Unfortunately things do not get any better for the Marin family as the gun matches the gun that killed Wilden. Not only that but the bullets have Hanna’s mom’s fingerprints all over them.

Don’t worry because of Fifty Shades of Grey handcuffs are in this season…

Elsewhere, having some itchy feet Spencer decides to go on a little road trip with Toby. Why the solo gig Spencer, why no help from the other girls? Well, Mona blabbed about the fact that Toby stole the RV and handed it over to A. She also blabbed about the little detail of Spencer knowing about it for weeks. The girls get their cold shoulders on and throw Spencer some shade for the rest of the episode.

Spin-off alert, Spencer and Toby travel to Ravenswood. This is the location of the new show on ABC Family where Caleb is set to move to. It is like every Hitchcock film rolled into one. Did anyone else wonder whether those creepy birds would attack? They bump into Ms. Grunwald (the den mother of the sorority house in the previous episode). She is playing all kinds of stupid and gives Spencer no leads. She is so suspiciously alike to Ali, they have to be related.  LOOK…

31-07-2013 22-50-15

Is that Ali wearing prosthetic make-up??

So feeling like they wasted a whole lot of time and gas, Toby and Spencer decide to leave Ravenswood but spot Shana. But in PLL fashion before they could get any info out of her, she sped off in Jenna’s car. Thank god for small town traffic because there easily could have been a collision.

Emily collided with the police this week when she made a big move in trying to help out Hanna’s mom. She got her hands on the footage of Jenna and Shana helping out Wilden after Hanna’s Mom ran over him with a car. Unfortunately Captain Obvious Emily just left the footage laying on the main detective’s desk for all to see. Does she not know by now to keep her cards close? When Emily is brought in and questioned about the footage she gets a surprise when she realizes the CD had been replaced by somebody else and they also forged her signature. Check out the footage that it was replaced with CREEEPY.

31-07-2013 22-49-16

Those masks are becoming hella creepy already.

At the end of the episode we see Red Hood wearing a Emily mask behind the wheel of a car. Oh the drama of it all?? What is A up to?

Finally Aria has been trying to stay away from anything A-like and got her tutor on. Specifically with a team-mate of her brother’s. When the lesson is over, he makes a move and kisses Aria. How could she blame the boy, she is the one who always gets all hot and bothered by teaching. As she laughs it off, she soon finds out that the boy has been bragging around school that they hooked up. Feeling embarrassed she confronts him in the locker-room to set the story straight and the conversation is overheard by Ezra. When he tries to help, she warns him that he lost his privileges to help when they broke up. Harsh Aria. A couple of hours later and the boys car is totalled.

31-07-2013 22-48-18

The message is loud and clear: Don’t fuck with Aria

There are so many culprits that could have done this but my money is on Ezra. He looked way too innocent in that locker room to not retaliate.

This week’s episode was very good, the story lines have gotten very separate due to the girls having their disagreements (or in Hanna’s case being trapped in her house). I like that because it means the girls are all actively making bold moves to find out more about A. The Ravenswood trip just seemed like a bit of a waste, I can see that it was a little bit of a teaser for the spin-off but in actuality a spooky town a show does not make. I need more juice in my spooky towns.

RECAP- True Blood 6×05 Fuck The Pain Away

16-07-2013 23-58-39

The Hunger Games in True Blood

Stakes are getting higher and sharper in this week’s episode of True Blood. The number of our favourite vampires being locked up is rising by the episode. The camp is now hosting vampires: Jessica, Pam, Eric, Tara, Steve Newlin, the Governor’s Daughter and who knows who else. Eric has been fighting against other vamps in tests set by the camp and his final opponent ends up being Pam.  She has been super pissy with him since he stopped being her maker, so who knows if she will actually fight. A major character is going to be killed off soon and I am worried it is going to be Pam by the looks of this scenario.

When will this ever end? The Governor’s daughter isn’t having the best time either. She didn’t get any special privileges in the camp. She is stuck in some private cell being monitored by a pervy guard. Eric knows she is there so I am guessing he will be the one to save her.  Tara is sharing cell quarters with a high on fairy blood Jessica and some uber sexy unnamed female vamp. I could smell the sexual tension between her and Tara, it was like an episode of Oz.

Elsewhere we get to learn more about the origin of Warlow and see what his intentions are with Sookie. Soon after Sookie attacks Warlow, we learn that Sookie’s parents were in fact trying to kill her on that bridge when they were killed. Warlow was trying to save her when he killed them. But why did Claudette try to kill Warlow?? Was he too tempted by Sookie’s blood?? It also turns out that Sookie was being given to Warlow as a pact of marriage not death. Because of this, Warlow has been in love with Sookie for yonks. Creepy.

Not only do we learn about Warlow’s ties to Sookie’s parents but also his ties to Lillith. Lillith was the one who turned Warlow into a vampire/faery which explains why Bill can compel Warlow. Lillith believed that Warlow would be the saviour of all vampires. Has it something to do with his blood being synthesized to save vampires from a true death??

After Warlow was rejected by his tribe, he killed them all the members because he was tempted by their blood. The tribe members lay in ruins (except Sookie’s great grandfather who was safely tucked away in his tent) and as an act of guilt and revenge he killed Lillith for turning him into a monster.

17-07-2013 00-00-57

Lillith sees the light.

When Warlow escapes Bill will he get with Sookie?? Will his blood actually change the vampire rule book by allowing them to walk around during the day?? So much could happen.

Elsewhere Sookie is reeling from the news that her parents tried to kill her because of her gift. They didn’t want Warlow turning her into a vampire so they could be together forever; so they decide to end her life completely. When Sookie decides to stage an intervention using Lafayette’s seancing ways it doesn’t end well.

17-07-2013 00-00-23

In to the boot you go Sookie…

Lafayette gets possessed by Sookie’s father and decides to finish what he started by trying to kill Sookie again. Eeek hope she can hold her breath…

Elsewhere…

16-07-2013 23-58-09

No need to say anything else…

Jason has a reunion with two exes this week when he has sex with Sarah Newlin. She decides to bail on the Governor; for at least one night anyway. All that changes when Jessica arrives on Jason’s doorstep high from drinking all but one of Andy’s daughters dry of blood. When Sarah realizes that Jason has had sex with a vampire she loses her shit. She notifies the anti-vamp police and they turn up to arrest Jessica. Jason feels guilty and decides to make plans to save Jessica. His plan is to join the anti-vamp police. Hopefully Jason will free all the vampires and we can all sleep soundly.

In shifter, werewolf news we get to see varied emotions from Alcide.

16-07-2013 23-57-50

angry…angry and angry

Yet again another pack master gets drunk on power and is killing anyone who questions him or his pack. On his quest to find Sam he manages to abandon his father. But when his father spots Sam in a parking lot, we still have to wonder whether he will go running to Alcide. Hopefully not, I am totally anti Alcide at the moment. He was so nice in the books and now he is a dick. Sam however is moving on with his new little pro supernatural protester. Poor Luna, she is a distant memory.

In human news, Andy is grieving for his dead daughters and Terry has asked an old friend to kill him. I totally forgot he killed that old army buddy last season. I don’t see his friend going ahead with the killing for some reason. He looked suspicious and his interests peaked when Terry told him who he killed. What is up to??

Good episode, they need less werewolves though. I am bored of angry pack masters.

RECAP- Pretty Little Liars 4×05 Gamma Zeta Die

16-07-2013 20-58-32

Fabulous new look Ms. Marin

This week we learned that Hanna’s mom would look amazing with a pixie cut, even if she disagrees. Hanna hasn’t been sleeping very well and has been having dreams of her mother switching her louboutins for an orange jump suit and sandals. As Ms. Marin speaks to Spencer’s mother about legal advice, Hanna freaks under pressure and steals the gun from their house. After four seasons the girls are failing to sense when there is an emergency and Hanna is ignored by all three girls. Feeling antsy she plays McGyver and uses a glass as a shovel to make a grave for the gun. Unfortunately the cops are already on the look out for Hanna and interrupt her mid-digging.

16-07-2013 21-02-10

Busted: This does not look good.

Why were the girls so preoccupied that they weren’t paying attention to Hanna’s cries for help. For one, Aria is dealing with her mother questioning her decision to leave the country. Just as she was packing her bags her brother demands she stays. And while we wonder why on earth Ella should leave she gets attacked by a bunch of bees.

16-07-2013 20-59-55If this was Charmed, those bees would be on fire along with the car.

Aria adamant that her mother must leave goes in search of help. Who does she approach? Only Ella’s ex who persuades her that it is his turn to play parent (because apparently he hasn’t being one for a while). And then in an historical moment on Pretty Little Liars the whole Montgomery family are in the same room. Prepare your shocked face.

16-07-2013 21-12-45

Believe your eyes, IT HAPPENED!!

I think Ella may live this season. I just have a bad feeling. All the cast members have been sending her tweets as if she off set a lot. COME BACK ELLA!!

Equally distracted were Spencer and Emily this week as they visited a nearby college. Spencer is there for A business (she found out that the number the parrot was singing has a similar area code to the college) and Emily might be interested in attending. The girls squabble over Spencer looking down on the college (while Emily wants to go there). Spencer also accuses Emily of seducing the guy trying to get them both in their desired colleges. Who knew Emily was such a man eater. Things get heated and they separate at the sorority party. Whilst learning about a sorority house (which could obtain her a scholarship), Emily learns about a stern den mother who used to have the sorority house on lock down. Who is this woman and why does A have a framed photograph of her???

16-07-2013 21-09-59

She kind of looks like an older Ali. Could she be her real mother, grandmother?? Who is this woman??

While Emily learns about college life, Spencer learns the insides of the sorority house!! Like a scene out of Pyscho, Spencer finds a hidden den inside the house.

16-07-2013 21-01-36

Run girl Run

The den has a rocking chair and a creepy pink phone. The phone number is the number that the parrot memorized. What is going on?? Who was Ali calling in this den, the den mother??

So many new questions arose from this episode. I am assuming all the girls will attend this college even Spencer. They can’t all go to colleges around the country. It wouldn’t work. Maybe one of them will fail their exams or A may frame them for cheating in an exam or get them expelled from school. Either way, they will all be living close to each other. I doubt A could terrorize them from Rosewood if they are all over the place, but who knows.

Loving this whole den mother mystery already and it has only begun. WHO IS SHE???

RECAP- True Blood 6×04 At Last

13-07-2013 00-15-55

I didn’t see that coming…

Plot twist time, we should have been more suspicious of this new character Ben because it turns out he is Warlow. Not only is he a powerful vampire but he also has fairy powers. Sookie is fooked. It isn’t long before everyone is clued in on Ben’s real identity and the Stackhouse family get their plans in action…separately though. Jason and his great grandfather attack him without haste but it backfires.  Jason is glamoured and walks away from the situation while his great grandfather is then thrown into the wormhole place that Warlow was trapped in. What a predicament!! And all because Warlow wanted to save Jason’s life by making him drink his blood.  Who would complain though because it brought about this delicious scene:

13-07-2013 00-34-57

Nobody does homoerotic scenes as good as True Blood.

Sookie’s plan to kill Warlow however seems to be going a lot better. First she poisons his food with silver but it doesn’t have any effect on him. When that doesnt work, she charges up her fairy magic just in time for the episode to end. ARGH!!! Considering that next week’s episode is entitled Fuck the Pain Away, I am assuming things change and they screw.  Maybe Warlow isn’t as bad as we think. He did after all save Jason. 

Elsewhere Sam is on the run from Alcide’s pack and he lets us know what he has in common with a horse.

13-07-2013 00-18-33

Just kidding, he shifts into a horse soon after.

Yet again, Sam and Lafayette’s storyline takes the form of small vignettes. They seem to be getting progressively longer through so next week should be more juicy. Sam clearly has gotten over Luna because he kisses the protester woman by the end of the episode.

 Bill is still on a mission to get fairy blood synthesized so that vampires will be immune from a true death. Unfortunately it requires a lot of fairy blood to experiment the process. Queue an angry Carrie like Bill.

13-07-2013 00-19-20

Enter Andy’s daughters. They have yet again gone through another quick stage in life and are now teenagers. Jessica joins the gang of girls and brings them all to Bill’s mansion. Bill seduces all the girls to get some blood but when they rebel against Jessica, bloodshed ensues. Jessica gets super hungry and seemingly kills the girls.

Eric still on a mission to get revenge on the Governor turns his daughter to a vampire.

13-07-2013 00-19-46

She is delighted and is loving her new life as a vampire. Unfortunately when Eric reveals that he turned her to teach her father a lesson she gets super pissed. She can’t argue though as he compels her to confront her father. It doesn’t go too well because the confrontation takes place on front of Sarah Newlin who takes matters into her own hands and shoots her.

Not only is Eric’s new protégé on her way to the vampire camp but so is Eric’s sister Nora and his other successor Pam. Everything is coming together for Bill’s vision of a vampire apocalypse to come to fruition.

I am loving this season so far. The story lines are all strong (no matter the amount of airtime they get). Maybe it was a good idea for Alan Ball to step down.

RECAP Pretty Little Liars 4×04 Face Time

Melissa must be not making many appearances this season because the girls took action this week. They weren’t pussy footing around her at all and set up a little trap. It was really not like them. You can tell why they don’t act like spies often..

03-07-2013 21-53-51

Who doesn’t see two creeps at your window??

The girls use the mould of Melissa they found last week to confront Melissa on her dealings with Wilden and Ali. When Melissa drives to the mould makers workshop she starts to destroy the remaining masks of her. Spencer confronts her and we finally get more some answers. Turns out Melissa made the same deal as Emily with the artist  to find out information on the Ali masks. We also learn that somebody was controlling Wilden and making him force the Melissa, Jenna and Shauna into doing things for A (Halloween fiasco and who knows what else). Wilden also started the fire in the lodge. Melissa also thinks that Ali is alive which means she definitely wasn’t involved in killing her. After we find all that juicy stuff out, Melissa vanishes.  Just as Aria is about to join the conversation. I definitely think that Spencer knows more than we think she does. I’m watching you Spencer, that conversation definitely didn’t finish there.

Aria was very quiet this week, she revealed to her new martial arts teacher that she was with her old teacher. And then things got awkward and he bailed. But it was an open ended bailing. She can pretty much call him later on but he was a little taken back by the whole situation.

Things however were not as quiet for Hanna as she is covering to the cops for her mother and doing a crappy job of it. Especially when her Mom makes this face when the cops open Wilden’s safety deposit box on front of her.

03-07-2013 21-51-38

Not suspicious at all…

Hanna’s mom is just looking crazy suspicious at the moment. This new cop that is in charge of the Wilden’s case is not taking any shit either. Perfect casting by the way, big Roma Maffia fan since Double Jeopardy. Hanna tries to sway the cop’s interest in her Mom by making them look into Melissa. Unfortunately that doesn’t work and they just push her and her mother into a corner. Questions for Hanna’s Mom are: Whose gun is in the safety deposit box? and simply What were you doing in Rosewood when you were supposed to be in New York??? Also work on your keeping it cool face.

Somebody else who is suffering from “stressed out resting face” is Emily.

03-07-2013 21-52-05

Take it down a peg Ems

Emily decides to play it cool and confront her doctor about the misunderstanding surrounding the medication. She then realizes that he is the one who reported her to family services initially. She starts to act frantic and only makes it more obvious that she is being abused somehow. We must remember that she actually is being abused by A and now all that past behaviour is now being pointed at her parents. Emily is cracking on front of our eyes because of A and it is all being blamed on her parents. With Emily’s father back in town, she is not going to get away with anything. He is in the army remember, they can be pretty strict. No more investigations in the middle of nowhere for you.

Emily also finally reveals to Paige that she injured herself because of A and they both deal with the possibility of Emily’s scholarship dreams no longer being reality. What way will this show go when they leave high school?? Will they even go to college??? I have wondered about this for so long. The books haven’t even took place after school yet. It is on book 13 or so and they only just went to prom.

In other news, Toby found his mother’s doctor who is now living in some sort of home. He doesn’t make a whole lot of sense because he seems to be suffering from dementia. He even warns Toby’s mother (as if she were alive) to stay away from that ‘blonde girl”.  Is he losing his marbles or is Toby’s mother actually alive??

In new Ali news, Ali was desperate to get cash off the mould creator Hector?? Like crazy desperate. Why did Ali need money so badly?? What were you up to Ali???

A much better episode than last week, I always love an episode with a flashback of Ali. It makes it seem like we are actually getting somewhere. Last week confused me because they were adding so much without properly explaining it.

RECAP- True Blood 6×03 You’re No Good

And the plot thickens…

As we seen last week from Bill’s vision, there is a vampire apocalypse upon us and all our favourite vampires are due to die. We also seen in his vision that Bill could walk in the sun…

01-07-2013 19-27-33

That didn’t work out so well…

Even though Bill cannot walk in the sun, it is more obvious that vampires are in actual trouble. The dreaded image of a camp like state was uttered by the Governor of Louisiana’s daughter. Spilling to Eric, we learn that vampires are being experimented on and killed. This explains how the Governor has learnt how to bypass glamouring. With Bill suffering from some sort of messiah complex, he believes that he can save everyone and stop the apocalypse from happening. First he sets Jessica off in search of the rumoured creator of True Blood, secondly he visits Sookie. He wants a sample of her faery blood believing that he can synthesize it and save vampires from facing a True Death. How did that go??

01-07-2013 19-31-27

Not so well, Bill basically recreates Carrie by tearing up Sookie’s home and throws plates around with his mind. When Sookie won’t help him by offering up her blood, Bill throws his toys out the pram and says she is dead to him. I am sensing they won’t have many scenes together this season. Plan B soon arises though when Bill becomes aware that Andy is the father of 4 teenage faeries.

Elsewhere we get a little look at this camp that the Governor has created to extinguish vampires for good.  Steve Newlin is just one of the vampires being held captive there and meets one of his captors; his wife.

01-07-2013 19-29-28

Sarah Newlin is now highly involved in politics. Her theory is, being a politician makes it easier for her to get God’s work done. She is now wealthy after writing a book about Steve turning into a vampire and abandoning the Fellowship of the Sun, but the money has done nothing for her vendetta against him and vampires. She is behind the extermination of vampires via the concentration campesque idea 100 percent. I do love the progression of these characters on the show. They originally started as religious cult co-leaders and now she is planning on having him burnt alive by the sun. Where else do you see that?

A little Faery update, Sookie’s great grandfather has found out that a good majority of Faerys in Bon Temps have been killed by Warlow. He found a Faery struggling to live and from my prospective he killed him?? Or does the trip back to Faeryland look horribly painful. Now I am even more suspicious of him. He also met with Ben who knows about Warlow too. What is going on? And who is the vampire who attacked Ben in episode 1???

Minor stories this week: Alcide is just getting angrier and angrier. There should be a drinking game for every time Alcide grunts or growls in an episode, you’d be tipsy after a single scene with him. He is also losing control of his pack. They killed a bunch of protesters hoping to help Shifters and Werewolves get more rights. While that was happening, Sam managed to get Emma back from the pack.

Eric is trying to figure out how to get back at the Governor for stealing his bar and having violence against vampires become legal. He is holding the Governor’s daughter ransom and it isn’t going to plan at all. First they have no place to hide her because Fangtasia is too obvious, secondly when they do hide out in Ginger’s house they are found pretty easily when they trace a call to Eric’s phone. Tara runs off with the Governor’s daughter so who knows how that will go down next week.

Jason is also getting weaker and weaker by the minute.  He is a little bit more sane though than previous episodes.

Very good episode, I am beginning to enjoy how the minor stories are developing. I think the amount of time that each storyline will differentiate as the season progresses. I hope so anyway because it would mean seeing more of lesser seen people in the next couple of episodes. Poor Lafayette, every time I see him there is a kitchen in the background. Get him outside!!!!
