Ranking the top 5 moments from “Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists” season 1 episode 5: “You Are My Beautiful Dreamer”

Greetings TV fans!  After watching Freeform’s Pretty Little Liars:  The Perfectionists season 1 episode 5, we were reminded that you can’t be friends with people you can never trust.  But what happens when you are all brought together by tragedy?  Is it better to stick together or should you continue to go your own separate way?  Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch yet.  In last night’s episode, “The Patchwork Girl,” Alison comes face to face with Taylor Hotchkiss.  Meanwhile, Ava, Caitlin, and Dylan come up with a plan to find out more from Mason and Mona reminds Dana Booker that research goes both ways.  My top 5 moments from Pretty Little Liars:  The Perfectionists  season 1 episode 5 are:


“My cloak of invisibility.”

In this episode, Mona comes face to face with Ray Hogadorn.  Ray is an interesting character for sure and seems to really have a thing for peanut brittle.  He reveals that he does know quite a bit and has been watching from afar, telling Mona that the list on the program could be a list of suspects or something to connect the dots, but what are the dots exactly?  Ray has been on campus for a long time and also mentions a girl he was in love with named Angela and says that she died tragically by jumping off a bridge.  He says he shared this story with Taylor and fears that it may have inspired her to do the very same thing, but also thinks that she could be alive as well.

We know that Ray was definitely not Nolan’s biggest fan, but he seems to be very forthcoming with Mona.  Does he recognize that they want the same thing or is he hiding something?  We know that Ray is the one who left Taylor the message on the wall about them watching her, but what else does Ray know and can he be truly trusted?


“It’s a funny thing about research.  It goes both ways.”

Dana Booker tries to have a sit down talk with Mona and claims that she knows quite a lot about her past in Rosewood.  However, Mona is not easily scared and tells Dana that she knows about her making connections that aren’t there and how she got kicked out of the FBI.  Dana Booker may be dangerous, but Mona will win hands down so she better watch her back!  We also learn that Mona was waiting for her online chess partner, Bad Bishop, but he or she never showed.  I’m still interested to find out more about this person.


“I’m not that easy to fool.”

Ava continues to get hidden messages and thinks her father is trying to contact her.  Ava finds a note that reads:


It’s time to go. Make sure you’re not followed. No one can know.

45’ 35” 59” N

122’ 48’ 07’ W

Ava grabs a bag full of cash and makes her way out to the coordinates, but runs into Dana Booker, who is the one responsible for leaving the messages.  Dana is proving to be a formidable opponent, but Ava outsmarts her.  She left the money in the car just in case and this was the right call.  Even though Dana can play the game however she wants, our new characters are proving to be quite impressive, but I did feel bad for Ava here, as she clearly wants to reconnect with her father more than anything else in the world.


“We don’t just look alike.  We think alike.”

After tracking down Taylor, Alison refuses to give up until she gets some answers.  Taylor initially tells Alison to get out of her house, but Alison persists and asks her:  “What are you afraid of?”  Taylor explains that someone tried to kill her, but also says that her mother brought Alison here to find her.  Alison tries to tell Taylor that her mother is very worried about her, but Taylor doesn’t want to talk to her, which makes me continue to suspect Claire.  She may not be behind the murder of her own son, but Taylor is clearly very afraid and her mother may have something to do with whoever was watching her.  Alison tries to bring Taylor home so that she feels safe, but she ends up leaving.  Will Alison be able to connect the dots here?  Let’s hope so!


“And then this nightmare will finally end…”

Ava, Caitlin, and Dylan seem like they may be going their separate ways after more secrets are revealed.  Ava finds out that Dylan had an affair with Nolan and Caitlin was the one responsible for information leaking on Ava’s father.  Before the secrets begin to tear them apart, they come up with a simple plan to find out exactly what Mason knows and to see if he is the one behind everything.  However, a simple plan becomes way more complicated when it involves kidnapping and drugging someone.  After the three characters have a fight, they begin to do things their own way, but quickly learn that they need each other.  Just as they all try to come together to help, Caitlin is struck by a car and we do not know her fate just yet.

We know that after Caitlin hit Mason over the head, he did wake up, so was he the driver behind the wheel or is there someone else watching them?  We also know that Claire was angry at Caitlin for lying to her so could she be the mysterious driver?  We’ll have to wait and see, but things are continuing to spiral out of control for our characters and hopefully Alison and Mona will be able to save the day before it’s too late.  Stay tuned!
