Greetings TV fans! After watching Freeform’s Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists season 1 episode 9, I learned that “good people can make bad mistakes,” but “you can’t be defined by one mistake,” can you? Well I’m not sure that attempted murder applies here, but you never know at Beacon University. Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch yet. In Wednesday night’s episode, “Live Together, Die Together,” everyone gets ready for the Gala and dresses to the nines, but drama is never too far away. Meanwhile, Taylor decides to go after Jeremy, but is she about to make a fatal mistake? My top 5 moments from Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists season 1 episode 9 are:
“We can leave together or we can say goodbye.”
In the beginning of the episode, we immediately flash to Caitlin and Jeremy. Jeremy reveals to Caitlin, “You wanted him gone too,” meaning Nolan, but he doesn’t exactly confess to murder. Jeremy is ready to get out of town and wants Caitlin to come with him, but he leaves the choice up to her. Caitlin has a lot to process here, but it doesn’t seem like she can fully believe that Jeremy is capable of Nolan’s murder. Is Jeremy confessing to something else or is he the mysterious killer we have been looking for?
Even though I ship Mona and Mason, I was worried in last week’s episode that someone might find out about the affair and use it against Mona and unfortunately this did happen. While Mason is with Mona, he gets a message from Claire Hotchkiss. Mona thinks this is slightly odd, but Mason explains that they have kept in touch after Nolan’s death. The Mona we all know would have normally been ten steps ahead of Claire, but perhaps her feelings for Mason have been clouding her better judgment.
Claire puts “active surveillance” on Mason and discovers the affair. She confronts Mona at the ball, who looked stunning in a red dress by the way, and terminates her. Mona now realizes her huge mistake and tells Mason that she cannot see him anymore. Is this truly the end for these two or will Mona find a way to make things right?
“Taylor’s stronger than you give her credit for.”
Alison continues to have Taylor’s back in this episode and even stands up to Claire for her. However, perhaps Taylor is hiding more than Alison realizes. Claire tells Alison that there are things she doesn’t know about Taylor. Taylor later reveals that she created Beacon Guard when she was younger to keep people safe, but her mother found out and ended up using it, locking her out. Is this the reason why Taylor has been targeted? As the creator of the original Beacon Guard, she may possess knowledge and secrets that could be very dangerous in the wrong hands…but what if those wrongs hands belong to her mother?
“I believe in you.”
Even though things don’t exactly work out for Mona and Mason right now, love is still blooming in the air. Dylan and Andrew have a sweet moment together, as Dylan finally plays, “A Song for Andrew,” to celebrate their anniversary. I’m really glad he got the chance to play for him, as Dylan has been so stressed out about possibly being kicked out of school. At the Gala, Andrew comes through and even has Dylan’s piece played before the entire audience, preventing Claire from having much say in kicking him out. Go Andrew!
Later on, sparks also continue to fly between Ava and Zach. Ava covers for Zach and tells him to go talk to the representative about his art, believing in his talent and in him, which was a really sweet moment. Again, it’s really amazing to see the transformation of these characters, as something so horrible has also brought them all together, allowing them to inspire others and truly make a difference. Let’s just hope this new “A” doesn’t ruin a good thing.
“He was getting away…”
At the end of the episode, our group gathers down at Caitlin’s meeting with Jeremy, determined to get to the bottom of everything. Only Taylor has brought a gun with her and refuses to let Jeremy get away with murder. Taylor shoots Jeremy and her friends immediately have her back, saying that he was running toward her, determined to protect Taylor no matter what. Caitlin rushes over to Jeremy and is beyond heartbroken…only Jeremy may be alive after all. What will he do now that Taylor has just taken a shot at him? Is he truly the big bad or is there still another mystery player to unmask? Stay tuned!
