Ranking the top 5 moments from “Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists” season 1 episode 8: “Act Normal Bitches”

Greetings TV fans!  After watching Freeform’s Pretty Little Liars:  The Perfectionists season 1 episode 8, I learned that you may think that you’re “in the circle, but you’ll never be in the circle.”  But being an outsider can be a dangerous thing, especially when everyone is a suspect.  So do you keep your friends close and your enemies closer or do you maintain your distance?  Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch yet.  In Wednesday night’s episode, “Hook, Line and Booker,” romance is in the air, as Alison and Mona contemplate potential new relationships.  Meanwhile, Ava has some memories about her and Nolan and Caitlin begins to worry about Jeremy’s loyalty.  My top 5 moments from Pretty Little Liars:  The Perfectionists season 1 episode 8 are:

5

“Isn’t it funny how sometimes we become the thing that we hate?”

In this episode, Mona and Dana Booker continue to clash, as Mona sits down during a teachers’ mixer to get to know Dana a little better.  While Mona plays the game to perfection and asks the appropriate questions, Dana cuts right to the chase and starts asking Mona more about Alison and Nolan’s murder, proving that she has no time for chit-chat.  Mona doesn’t waver; however, as she continues to hold her ground, putting Dana in her place, but it’s only a matter of time before the gloves come off between these two.  My money is on Mona!

“Thank you for the dance…”

During the teachers’ mixer, Alison meets a language professor named Gabriel and the two of them seem to hit it off right away.  Alison even gets a private dance lesson with him and shows off some of her Dancing with the Stars skills.  See you’re not out of practice!  It seems like romance is in the air, but Alison learns that Gabriel has an open relationship with his wife and she is not about to get mixed up in any drama right now.  I have to say that I was really proud of Alison in this moment.  She is still clearly hurting over her divorce with Emily, but she makes the right decision here and walks away.  Plus, I’m sensing some major sparks between her and Taylor Hotchkiss…

“Nothing makes me happier than to see you happy.”

Ava continues to grow closer to Zach in this episode, but this brings up memories of Nolan, which initially makes her sad.  We see a sweet moment between Nolan and Ava on Christmas morning, revealing that perhaps he did have a good side after all.  Ava later remembers Nolan telling her that her being happy makes him happy and decides to move forward with Zach.  I’m not sure if they are end game or not, but it’s nice to see Ava smiling for once and she does have a terrific laugh.

“I can’t stop thinking about you…”

Now that Bad Bishop’s identity has been revealed, Mona realizes that they are not just playing chess anymore.  Mona makes the decision to walk away from Mason, as she is an advisor at the school, which makes things more than complicated.  However, Mason later knocks on her door and tells her that he can’t stop thinking about her, which leads to a passionate moment between these two.  I have to say that I think these two are really cute together and I would love to see Mona happy for once, but could Dana Booker use this against her if she finds out?  Watch your back, Mona.

1

“You shouldn’t have followed me…”

My major theory has been that Caitlin’s boyfriend, Jeremy, is perhaps the threat everyone has been so worried about and it seems like things may be leaning in that direction now.  Caitlin follows Jeremy and sees him disposing something, but she’s too far away to really get a good look.  Either way, there is something suspicious going on here, but Jeremy discovers Caitlin before she can walk away.  Jeremy tells her to get in the car, but what does this mean?  Has Caitlin just stumbled upon something dangerous?  It’s clear that Jeremy is up to no good, but let’s hope that Alison, Mona, and the rest of the gang can track her down before it’s too late.  Stay tuned!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists” season 1 episode 4: “The Emerald City”

Greetings TV fans!  After watching Freeform’s Pretty Little Liars:  The Perfectionists season 1 episode 4, I realized that sometimes you just have to go with your gut, as Alison reminded us:  “It’s more than just a rose.  It’s a feeling.”  So what happens when we follow our instincts down that yellow brick road?  Do we end up chasing after a ghost?  And what happens when we are finally able to discover the man behind the curtain?  Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch yet.  In last night’s episode, “The Ghost Sonata,” Alison and Mona continue to track down leads to discover more about Nolan’s murder.  Meanwhile, Ava, Caitlin, and Dylan’s secrets begin to consume them, as they contemplate whether or not to share them with one another.  My top 5 moments from Pretty Little Liars:  The Perfectionists  season 1 episode 4 are:

5

“Turn up the heat.”

Nolan’s mother, Claire, continues to act suspicious when she has another conversation with Caitlin.  Claire realizes that Caitlin is lying to her and calls Dana Booker, asking her to turn up the heat.  But what does this mean exactly?  Why is Claire so interested in these particular friends of Nolan’s especially when we know that he had many other enemies that could be responsible for his death?  It looks like we still have a lot to learn about Claire, but she is absolutely hiding something.

4

“Where is he?  Everywhere…”

Ava, Caitlin, and Dylan continue to receive more cryptic messages about seeing a rat, but they immediately begin to suspect that Mason is behind this.  However, this seems a little too obvious to me and I am starting to suspect Caitlin’s boyfriend, Jeremy.  Jeremy has a motive for sure, as Nolan was trying to blackmail Caitlin and he also has a connection to Claire.  We know that whoever is sending the messages must have some knowledge of IT or programming and Jeremy definitely fits this description.  I know it’s just a theory of mine, but I am definitely getting a bad vibe from him, but we’ll have to stay tuned to find out more.

“I think you moved on.  You just never said it out loud.”

Even though Alison has left Rosedale behind her, we see several text messages coming in from Emily.  We later find out that Emily is asking for a divorce and Alison has been understandably hesitant about signing the papers.  Mona continues to be a good friend and provides Alison with some supportive advice when she tells her that perhaps she has already moved on.  Is Alison finally ready to say goodbye to her past?  Maybe not entirely, but she is definitely making a huge difference with Ava, Caitlin, and Dylan, so perhaps she can continue to find herself through her work.  It’s never too late to change and I love Alison’s character transformation so far.  This spin-off is really allowing her and Mona to shine.

“Who is Ray Hogadorn?”

The questions keep coming and everyone is a suspect.  Mona tracks down a lead to find Ray Hogadorn after doing some of her own detective work and she walks into a room filled with newspaper clippings and leads connected to Nolan and Taylor.  At the end of the episode, the custodian walks in.  Is this the infamous Ray and if so, what does he want?  Does he work for the FBI?  Is he connected to Mona somehow?  Mona has also been having some online conversations with Bad Bishop.  While their chess matches may be fun, is this a potential romance or a new threat?

“Secrets have a way of keeping you close and you need each other.”

Alison continues to try and help Ava, Caitlin, and Dylan, but she also tracks down a lead on her own after going through some of Taylor’s Wizard of Oz books.  Claire tells her that Taylor was always looking for her own Emerald City and Alison realizes that she may have just found its location hidden in McDevitt’s Quarry.  Alison finds a trailer and begins to look around, but comes face to face with Taylor.  Only Taylor doesn’t want to stay and chat and she locks Alison inside the trailer.  What could Taylor be running from and why did she need to fake her own death?  The mystery is continuing to unravel, but let’s hope our girl Alison can find a way out of there before she finds herself lost in Oz for good.  Stay tuned!
