My Ship of the week ending 5/18/19 on TV goes to…

Dylan and Andrew on Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists, better known as Andy!  There have been several swoon-worthy ships emerging on the PLL spin-off, but Andy has just taken things to the next level.  Please note some spoilers are ahead.  Dylan and Andrew initially seemed like they might go their separate ways, as Andrew was upset to find out about Dylan’s secret past with Nolan.  However, things are finally looking up for these two and I was happy to see a sweet and passionate moment for them. 

I have been waiting for Dylan to play his song, “Song for Andrew,” for his boyfriend and this moment finally happened and it was beautiful!  First off, the song is so pretty and I want to download it myself and play it all the time.  Andrew is clearly so surprised and happy with the song, as this ship on the rocks now sails steady.

Later on in season 1, episode 9, Andrew proves that he is someone who Dylan can truly count on.  Dylan is facing the possibility of expulsion and Andrew steps in to save the day.  He plays Dylan’s music piece in front of the Gala audience, showcasing his incredible talent.  This was a risky move for Andrew, but it pays off, as it now puts Claire Hotchkiss in a difficult position.  I was seriously very impressed with Andrew’s decision here, as he makes Dylan his number one priority, proving to be in his corner.  No more secrets, guys!

What’s next for Andy?  We’ll have to stay tuned to find out, but let’s hope this new “A” doesn’t get in the way of this beautiful love.  These two are end game for me and even though there are other ships with some note-worthy moments on the show, it seems like Andy is here to stay.  I can’t wait to see what happens next for these two!

Stay tuned for a recognized Ship on TV each week!

Best,

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?

4

“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?

3

“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?

2

“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.

1

“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 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!

4

“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…

3

“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.

2

“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 7: “She’s not an A”

Greetings TV fans!  After watching Freeform’s Pretty Little Liars:  The Perfectionists season 1 episode 7, I learned that “you can’t will someone to be trustworthy,” but “if you’re honest, there are no wrong answers” when it comes to who you are.  Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch yet.  In Wednesday night’s episode, “Dead Week,” Mona realizes that she is now a major player in the game, but is she ready to play?  Meanwhile, Alison comes clean with the group about Taylor and tries to get through to her.  My top 5 moments from Pretty Little Liars:  The Perfectionists season 1 episode 7 are:

5

“I wanted you to hear it from me first.”

In the beginning of the episode, Alison lets the group know that Taylor is really alive.  She knows that this news is about to be broadcasted all over the place and she thinks it is important to share it with Ava, Caitlin, and Dylan first.  She explains that Nolan knew and that he was trying to keep them safe.  We know that Taylor was running away from someone who was threatening her, so is the same person now threatening Ava, Caitlin, and Dylan?  We’ll have to stay tuned to find out, but the cat is finally out of the bag and Taylor is now out in the open.  But can she truly be trusted?

4

“He only hates you because he loves you.”

Dylan continues to try and win back Andrew’s affection in this episode, but Andrew has made it clear that he needs some time after learning about Dylan’s secret past with Nolan.  Andrew finally comes around at the end of the episode and the two of them have a sweet moment together, as they slow dance.  It looks like the two of them are home now, but they make it clear that there will be no more secrets between them, but we know that the drama is nowhere near over.  Will Andrew be able to fully support Dylan?

3

“I know who this is!”

So I’ve been wondering who Bad Bishop is for quite some time and our girl Mona finally figures it out after Bad Bishop says that “chess is the art of math.”  Mona remembers that Mason said something similar about playing piano during their counseling session and she confronts him.  Mason admits to being Bad Bishop and asks what comes next and Mona says, “Start a new game,” as their conversation is interrupted when Nolan’s identification card is used somewhere, luring Mona away.  Now that we know that Mason is Bad Bishop, what does this mean for Mona?  Is this a new potential romance for her or a good friend?  We’ll have to wait and see, but it looks like Mason has been cleared of any involvement in Nolan’s murder, but let’s hope that he has good intentions for Mona.

2

“So reinvent yourself and follow through.”

I love the growing friendship between Alison and Mona on this spin-off and they have another truly significant moment together.  Alison has been feeling torn over Taylor, recognizing the connection here.  She has been trying to balance her life and make time for her family while also making a difference in the lives of her students, but she is feeling slightly defeated.  Mona gives her a pep talk and tells her to follow through on starting over so that Alison can truly get her fresh start.  I think that Mona and Alison have a great dynamic and they make a terrific tag team.  Let’s just hope they can bring this new “A” down before it’s too late!

1

“Let’s take this bitch down.”

After Mona gets an interesting set of cupcakes featuring a creepy message asking:  “Can we be pals?” she realizes that she has just become a major player in the new A’s game.  Mona realizes that whoever broke into her apartment and left the cupcakes has Nolan’s ID card and she is determined to get to the bottom of this.  After tracking the ID card to Dana Booker, Mona realizes that she is going to need someone on the inside as well and she tells Alison, “I refuse to be a doll.”  Mona is ready to take on whoever she needs to and I think Dana Booker better watch her back.  She may be clever, but there is no one like our girl, Mona.  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:

5

“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.

4

“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?

3

“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.

2

“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!
