Ranking the top 5 moments from “Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists” season 1 episode 9: “Live Together, Die Together”

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:

5

“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?

“You’re terminated.”

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!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists” season 1 episode 6: “So you think the dead girl should live again?”

Greetings TV fans!  After watching Freeform’s Pretty Little Liars:  The Perfectionists season 1 episode 6, I remembered why I fell in love with Pretty Little Liars in the first place.  The twists keep coming and even when you think you may have figured out one part, there are that many more pieces of the puzzle left to discover.  The spin-off has now caught up to the original, as I found myself completely immersed in the mystery, wanting to know more and more!  Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch yet.  In last night’s episode, “Lost and Found,” Alison tries to track down Taylor after she sneaks out of her house with Mona’s help.  Meanwhile, Caitlin’s fate is revealed and Ava and Dylan team up to try and find Mason’s phone.  My top 5 moments from Pretty Little Liars:  The Perfectionists season 1 episode 6 are:

“We’re here to support our friend…no matter what.”

In the beginning of the episode, we learn that Caitlin is in surgery and she ends up pulling through.  Phew!  The bond between her, Ava, and Dylan is that much stronger now, as they realize how important it is to stick together, especially when Dana Booker is lurking around and causing trouble.  Throughout the episode, Caitlin has to deal with her own fair share of drama with her mother, as she makes the decision to continue lying for her about the affair, but is this the right call?  Caitlin wants to do what is right for her family, but look where her secrets have gotten her so far.

“So you think the dead girl should live again?”

After doing some investigation work of her own, Alison realizes that Taylor must be hiding out at the cemetery and she is right.  Alison understands what Taylor is going through because she went through something very similar in her own past.  Alison explains that “hiding in the shadows makes you an easy target” and encourages Taylor to come forward.  Alison brings Taylor to her mother, Claire, but what will happen once everyone finds out that she faked her own death?  Taylor has been hiding from a threat, but has it gone away or will this only make everything worse for her?

“Play again?”

Mona keeps chatting with Bad Bishop, who claims that something came up when they were supposed to meet.  Mona continues to play with Bad Bishop, but when are we going to meet this player face-to-face?  Mona begins to uncover some interesting things as well in Taylor’s trailer, as she finds a secret drawer that leads her to Beacon Guard.  Mona realizes that the program can track where people are, but it also mentions someone named BH4.  So “who the hell is BH4?”  I’m not sure, but is Mona now in danger for discovering this?  Mona is an excellent player at any game, but she may have just opened the door to something very dangerous.  Perhaps the same person who was after Taylor may be after her next?  We’ll have to wait to find out.

“Sometimes the most beautiful things can come from the ugliest places.”

While Ava and Dylan try to track down Mason’s phone, Ava’s fashion show is going on, which is very important to her.  When Ava and Dylan return, they are covered in sewage, which doesn’t really make the best impression, especially since someone from Vogue is there to scout out Ava’s talent.  However, Ava turns it around and embraces it.  She walks out with confidence and talks about how she previously used to try to make everything perfect, but that our imperfections make us truly beautiful and that we can’t always be perfect and clean and that we shouldn’t have to be.  Ava’s speech makes a great impression and it looks like the fashion show was a success.  I thought this was a really great moment for Ava and so far, I am liking her the most out of the new characters on the show.

1

“Whatever it takes.”

Even though there was a lot of drama going on during the fashion show, the real drama took place when Ava and Dylan tried to track down Mason’s phone.  Ava ends up pulled into the sewer by something…or someone, bringing me back to the movie, It.  Someone dressed in a pig costume is behind it, but we don’t get to see the man or woman behind the mask.  Dylan helps Ava get out of there and they run right into Dana Booker.  It seems like Dana is popping up all over the place and she has just become their new suspect since Mason has been ruled out because of his alibi.  Is this too obvious still, however?

While Dana Booker is certainly a pest right now, I’m still leaning toward Caitlin’s boyfriend, Jeremy.  I just don’t trust him.  Either way, the mystery is not even close to being over, as the Beacon Guard program shows that dead Nolan is somehow in Mona’s apartment?  Who is actually there and is our main suspect the master mind behind Beacon Guard?   I’m not sure, but let’s take a look at some of our suspects so far:

Claire Hotchkiss:  She may not have killed her son, but I don’t trust her for one second.  She seems to be very powerful and could be behind Beacon Guard.

Andrew:  Caitlin’s boyfriend, who definitely has the skills to pull this off.  Is he working for Claire or does he have another motive?

Dana Booker:  Why is Dana so focused on bringing down Ava, Caitlin, and Dylan?  Is there something of her own that she is hiding as well?

Mason:  He may have been cleared with his alibi, but he’s not really innocent either.

Bad Bishop:  Who is Bad Bishop and could he or she link us to the real suspect?

Stay tuned!
