Pretty Little Liars: Season 5 Episode 6 Recap

SPOILER ALERT!!

 
 

Is A Really Back??

This episode of Pretty Little Liars, “Run Ali, Run”, begins with the whole gang opening the text A sent them at the end of the last episode. It reads “did you miss me bitches”. So they come to the obvious conclusion that A is alive. Prior to this, Toby ran into his house to make sure no one was in it. Then…his house blows up. But I guess he got out in time because he didn’t die. The police assume that the house blew up because of a natural gas leak, because A always covers his/her tracks. No surprise there!

How Much Longer Can Hanna take Ali Being Back?

Let me tell you, Hanna still is not coping too well. She sees Caleb in the cafe near the beginning of the episode. He tries to convince her to go to the police about A, in light of the whole terrorist attack. She refuses, making the valid point that they have no evidence. Caleb also reveals that he might be leaving…again. Later on, she goes to visit him and they have a little heart to heart, which ends in drinking from a flash. Yeah, I’m seeing an alcohol problem in the near future.

Later, Hanna flakes on another date with Travis. It didn’t take much more than that for him to be done. Later on in the episode, he puts two and two together with Caleb being back and breaks it off with Hanna.

 

Will Ali Stick Around?

A sends Ali a video of her Mom being buried. The caption is “I buried your mom the same way I watched her bury you”. The girls try to figure out who A is, making no leeway of course. They decide to try following the Bethany Young lead.

Ali wants to leave, but the girls make the valid point that everyone knows shes alive now and the police are watching her. Despite their sound logic, they weren’t able to convince her.

Hanna catches Ali on the phone arranging plans to leave town. She tells her she’ll help her leave. We also find out that Noel Kahn is the one Ali has been talking to.

Emily discovers that Hanna is planning on helping Ali leave and she’s pretty pissed. She feels like the girls won’t be able to protect Ali if she leaves.
 

What’s Really Up with Ali and Emily?

Emily tries to get Paige to give her the names of Mona’s followers. She is reluctant, but Emily tells her that they may have blown up Toby’s house. But the real reason is that she’s terrified of A trying to kill Ali. It’s not clear whether Paige gives her the names or not, but she finds a dead rat in her locker later. So maybe she did.

Later, Ali is attacked by a hooded figured and is almost choked to death! Thankfully, Emily saves her and nearly finds out who the figure is before they run away. SUSPENSE!

Of course, the girls are outraged by Ali’s attempted murder, and they try to figure out who could have been behind the mask. A interrupts the pow wow with a text saying he/she will kill Ali if she leaves rosewood.

After the girls leave, Emily wants to call the police, but Ali refuses. Emily asks her not to leave Rosewood, as a compromise. Later on, Emily and Ali are alone and Ali asks to stay the night with her. Emily ends up staying awake all night watching her sleep. I’m sensing a slow burning romance between them…

 

Did Spence’s Dad Murder Mrs. D? Or no?

Spencer runs into her dad when picking up some stuff from her house. She tells her dad why she and her mother left. He claims the reason they weren’t in town is because they were talking at the lake.

Later, Spence goes to Radley to try and grill her favorite orderly. He doesn’t tell her anything, but she does successfully get herself caught on camera.

She orchestrates a meeting between her parents. It seems to be somewhat effective because they show her parents briefly holding hands. But then her mom tell her that they are moving back home, but her Dad is moving out.

 

Is Aria in too Deep with Ezra?

Spence confronts Aria about her re-involvement with Ezra. She must have made an impact because Aria tells Ezra that the other night was a mistake. In the middle of their conversation, Detective Tanner shows up at Ezra’s door. Of course, she invites herself in. She wants to talk about Shana. Apparently she has figured out that Shana shot him and wants to know if that has anything to do with Shana’s death.

He also receives a creeeepy drawing of a monster trying to devour Mrs. D in her yard , drawn by….Bethany Young.

Aria wants Ezra to tell the police it was Shana who shot her. They are interrupted by the discovery of the clip in which Eddie (Spence’s orderly) left the creepy drawing for Ezra.

 

Cliffhangers? Of course.

At the end of the Episode, we see Aria in an interview for a volunteer position at Radley. Meanwhile Detective Tanner tracks down Emily and Ali and asks them about where they were on the night of Shana’s death.

Lastly, we see a figure in all black write a note of condolences about Bethany Young, before putting on a veil (female?) and putting the note in an arrangement of flowers. Perhaps, we’re getting just slightly closer to finding out who A is. What do you guys think?

4.Wicked Lovely Series by Melissa Marr

1. Kindred by Octavia Butler
2. The Time Traveller’s Wife (Absolutely Beautiful. Must read. Although it does have some problems, I still loved it.)

My Favorites

Outfit Recreations for Pretty Little Liars Episode 5×5

In love with the Pretty Little Liars outfits from Season 5, Episode 5?

Here are some close recreations!

I was able to find almost the exact outfit that Ali wore on her first day back to school. This is a style that would be perfect for a fancy dinner, a date, or even a party(without the jacket). The blazer, dress, and shoes are the exact ones that she wore:
 

Alison's Outfit Recreation: Pretty Little Liars S5E5



 
 
Aria’s featured outfit was little bit harder, but this is very similar. I like this outfit for a shopping trip or a lunch date with your friends:

Emily sported a casual look for most of the episode. This is something that would be great for class or running errands. It looks really comfortable:

Lastly, I thought new girl, Sydney, was super cute in the get up she wore for most of the episode. It’s very casual, but a little cutesy! Here’s my recreation:

Pretty Little Liars: Season 5 Episode 5 Recap

SPOILER ALERT!

 

What is Ali up to now?

 
On this episode of Pretty Little Liars, Ali is readjusting to life in Rosewood. The town is apprehensive, at best, about Alison’s return and Mona is still gathering a faction against her. At the beginning of the episode, Aria and Fritz catch Alison in a secret meeting with someone. This leaves us to wonder, what tricks does Alison have up her sleeves now?

Later on, after Emily leaves her to meet up with Paige and Sydney, Ali rushes to the church. There, she runs into Mona. Mona’s confidence is at an all time high, as she threatens Ali with proof she was in New York the night Shana died. She desperately wants her to leave town. Ali returns gives a threat of her own, saying she’s made her a loser once and she can do it again. Mona explodes, slapping Ali in the face. But Ali does her one better and draws blood with her slap. Unfortunately, Ali decides to lie about it when the girls ask her what happened, and that definitely bites her in the butt later.

Spencer is Off Drugs Now… Right?

 
Yes, she is, but she’s just as intense as ever. Spencer is concerned about her father’s involvement in Mrs. DiLaurentis’ death, as she should be. She gets called to the office at school and learns that her Mom is planning on leaving her Dad, and she’s taking Spence with her.

Mrs. Hastings reveals that she knows her Dad may have killed Ali’s Mom, because she had an investigator follow him and Melissa. The investigator discovered that they weren’t where they said they were gonna be on the night of Mrs. DiLaurentis’ death. She also drops an interesting hint about how she and Spence’s Dad had an understanding and they had hoped to protect Spencer from everything they were involved in, though she didn’t say what that was.

Also in this episode, Spence uses her super research skills to find out that Mona “blue snarfed” the girls, which is how she knew they were in New York the night Shana was murdered. All I could picture when she said this was Mona viciously throwing little blue Smurfs at the girls, laughing maniacly. Apparently, “blue snarfing” is some sort of satellite tracking program, I think.

 

Is Jenna Finally Done with Her Scheming Ways?

 
Jenna is back, again, and she’s distraught over Shana’s death. Not surprisingly, she calls Toby first. Feeling bad for her, he goes running. Aria plans to visit Jenna, in an attempt to make ammends for killing Shana. She walks in, cue cinematic music (I honestly thought she was gonna find a dead body), and Jenna is on the floor crying. She calls out, asking if anyone is there. Aria then loses her nerve and backs away slowly.

Later, she shows up at Aria’s house, saying she knew that it was her in her room. Toward the end of the episode, we’ll see that Jenna may not be quite as devastated as she appears.
 

When Will the “Pretty Little Liars” be Diagnosed with PTSD?”

 
Hanna is having some real trouble adjusting to Ali’s reappearance in her life. She’s gone back to her coping habit of shoplifting, and she’s also developed another risky habit. Caleb is back, cryptic as ever, refusing to tell Hanna anything at all when he sees her in the coffee shop. This only makes her more upset, and she goes out and gets drunk that night.

Meanwhile, Aria is obsessed with the video of Shana’s funeral, watching it over and over again. She’s venting to Ezra and spending quite a bit of time with him. This leads to another risky behavior (in my humble opinion)…
 

Who’s Kissing Who?

 
There seems to be a burgeoning romance between Emily and Sydney. Which is fine, I guess, but am I the only one who always thinks new characters are gonna be evil agents of A? Oh yeah *smacks head*…A is dead. Maybe. Also, Ali finally admits that she has feelings for Emily. She says that the kisses they shared before she disappeared weren’t just for practice and that she’s liked her all along. Emily seems wary of this admission, at first. But she must have warmed up to the idea, because later Emily and Alison share a kiss in Emily’s bed.

While Em and Ali are kissing, big surprise, Aria and Ezra get back together. They seal the deal with a slightly steamy sex scene. Tell me, do you all feel that Aria and Ezra are still a good match, after everything he did?
 

What New Plots are Afoot?

 
Mona gains the upper hand when she shows the whole school a video of Ali slapping her, editing it to seem as if it was all unprovoked.
This places a huge rift in Em and Ali’s growing bond. Alison tries to defend herself, but Emily just doesn’t believe her.

Of course, toward the end of the episode, we discover that the new girl(Sydney) is in cohorts with Jenna and Mona. I knew we couldn’t trust her! Or Jenna. But im betting Sydney will have an in with Emily, now that she is distrustful of Ali once again.

Just How Many Bombs Were Dropped in this Episode?

 
Breaking news! A press conference is broadcast, telling Rosewood that Bethany Young was the girl burried in Ali’s grave. Following this bomb dropping, an actual bomb goes off, seemingly destroying half the subdivision. When the girls go outside to survey the damage, all of their phones go off at the same time…then we cut to a familiar scene of a masked figure in a black hoody, doing dastardly deeds. And the preview for the next episode reveals that, of course, A is back.

Seriously, who do you guys think A is?

Hit the Floor: Raquel Outfit Recreation

I really thought the outfit Raquel wore to her lunch date with Jude was adorable, so I wanted to post this recreation of it. Unfortunately the items that most closely match her outfit were a bit expensive, so I made two versions.

Hit the Floor S2E7: Raquel Outfit Creation



 
This is really an adorable outfit to wear if you’re going for more of a reserved, super classy look. I would probably wear this to a lunch or dinner with my boyfriend and his parents. Or I would even wear this to church.

Raquel's Lunch Date

 

Not only is this style less expensive, it is also more of a first date outfit. You want to look sexy, but not too sexy (at least if you’re really interested in this person!), so this is perfect. Cutesy, but with a little sex appeal.

Too Faced Natural Eyes Neutral Eye Shadow Collection $36
Maleficent Lipstick $17.50

Now for the Recap…

Did Ahsha Hayes Dump Derek Roman?

I’ll give you the long answer. This episode of Hit the Floor begins with Ahsha (up and coming Devil Girl) getting booked in the police department. The last episode ended with her and Derek being stopped by the police, right after he throws his COCAINE in her purse. Can you say deal breaker? Of course, she’s super mad at him and she ignores him for several days. Derek bombards Ahsha with request to talk about his massive flub up, but Ahsha is more concerned with plotting revenge against Jelena.

Is Jelena’s Icy Heart Melting?

I’m starting to believe it is. But then again, I’m a romantic and I can’t help rooting for her and Terrance. In this episode, Jelena and Terrance meet with his long time friend and find out that he has a degenerative condition, causing him to lose his memory. Later in the episode, they have another get together. It becomes obvious that Terrance’s old friend is truly and sadly confused. He thinks that Jelena and Terrance never broke up and that they actually are married now. Jelena shows a rare stroke of true kindness when she puts Terrance’s friend’s mind at ease, telling him a lovely story about Jelena and Terrance’s successful married life, two sons, and a house. The scene ends with Jelena and Terrance slow dancing, and Terrance breaking away after becoming too emotional.

Later, Jelena is walking her car at the Devil’s Arena and Zero appears out of the darkness. He appears to be jealous over Terrance and makes a case for him and Jelena to be together, saying he sees her for who she is (and he likes it), he calls her the ultimate trophy in LA. Zero also says he can give her everything she’s ever wanted. But it wasn’t in a sweet way, at all, it sounded more like a deal with the devil. Which makes me wonder…just how far will Zero go for success?

How Far Has Pete Davenport Slid?

At the beginning this episode, Pete is recovering from a drunken night after the roast (from the last episode). German and Ahsha spend the day nursing his hangover. As thanks, Pete tells German he can tag along at a prestigious coaches dinner. Pete doesn’t make the coaches dinner. Instead, he gets drunk and has sex with Lionel. Yeah, he’s fallen WAY off the wagon.

Is Derek Roman a Disaster Waiting to Happen?

Honestly, I think so. I kind of like Derek better than German, but he needs to completely clean his act up if he wants to be with Ahsha. In the end of this episode, Ahsha asks Derek if his cocaine snorting (sniffing? smoking?) is the beginning of a problem or the end. Of course, he tells her it’s the end. Also, in this episode, a barista recognizes Derek roman, having seen him with Olivia before she died. The writers are slowly showing us that Derek is somehow twisted up in this Oscar/Olivia’s Death conspiracy. Acting super guiltily, he hurries out of the coffee shop, denying that he was ever there with Olivia. I just do not know about this guy. What do you all think?

How Much Damage Did Jelena Do Last Episode?

Well, she definitely got a good hit in. Sloane is freaking out about her picture having been posted online and Raquel is attempting to console her. Sloane skips work for a day or two and Ahsha encourages her mom to fight Jelena back, instead of giving up. Also, while Sloane is gone, Jelena undermines one of her decisions and makes a deal with a sleazy millionaire that Sloane has been avoiding. However, Raquel goes on a date with Jude(Oscar’s son) and gets the number to his burner phone, and gives it to Sloane. She has Michael (Jason George) look up all of the in-going and outgoing calls for the number.

So by the end of the episode, Sloane is making some headway against Oscar and she’s feeling a little more chipper. Does anyone else think that her and Micheal will end up together? Because I’m sensing an opportunity for him to make another appearance. Michael discovers that Raquel called Olivia 15 times on the day that she died. When Sloane asks her about it, Raquel tells her that Olivia knew she was an illegal alien. She assures her that she is 100% down for defeating Oscar. Of course, Jude overhears them plotting about this. The episode ends with him confronting them. So, I guess next time, we’ll find out just how much he cares about his dear daddy.

A Few of My Favorite Things: Makeup

photo 1

It’s a good idea to routinely take stock of your beauty supplies and identify your beauty faves! Today, I went through mine and found some favorite samples and products that I plan to get more of.

1. MAC Cream Colour Base in Improper Copper

photo 1 (2)photo 3 (2)

I love this stuff. Seriously. This is a fantastic product to buy, because it’s multi-purpose. I mostly use it for highlighting and eye color(though eye use is not recommended), but you can also use it for lips or combine it with blush. This red-orange gold shade is really very lovely on darker skin tones, like mine. Those darker than me, and even considerably lighter than me will look great wearing this. I often use it when I am going out, as the shimmery gold will catch the light, even if it’s mostly dark. ;)

2. Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara

photo 2
I decided to try the mini version of this and, I have to say, I was a little skeptical at first. The product has been hyped up, A LOT, and the title is major hype in and of itself. However, it really is awesome mascara. The wand is one of my favorite designs, as it effectively fights against clumping, and it is also easy to use on your bottom set of lashes. The mascara formula itself gives you a sultry, almost smokey look. I will definitely be getting the full-sized version of this. If you want it too, but you aren’t sure about it, I recommend buying the Beauty Blogger Darlings collection which will give you the mini along with minis of Shadow Insurance, Chocolate Soleil Matte Bronzer, and Primed and Poreless Primer for $20. Good deal right?

3. e.l.f. Eyebrow Kit

Yes, this product is SUPER cheap, at $3. But I find that it really fills my needs. It’s easy to work with and there is a good amount of product (though I have hit pan). I use the brush that came with it and that allows me easily fill my eyebrows in, exactly the way I want them. I will be stocking up on this soon!

4. Clinique Blushing Blush Powder in Smoldering Plum


photo 5photo 2 (2)
I really adore this blush because, again, it looks great on dark skin tones. It is a darker color and therefore more dramatic, but I really love it for winter looks or for going out. It’s well pigmented, so you don’t need to build it much. Also, it has a little gold shimmer, which works really well with this shade of plum. This is something that I will probably grab more of, just in case it is discontinued. To give you a glimpse of how it looks on, I swatched this blush, as well as, the next one (it’s the top shade).

5. Boots No. 7 Natural Blush in 22 Candy Pink

The title of this blush describes it well. I use this on a daily basis because it gives you a little bit of natural looking color. It’s very buildable and it’s a cute bubble gum shade of pink! I bought it in my university boutique and, unfortunately, I couldn’t find a link for this product. However, I have heard that you can pick it up for the cheap at Target!

6. Clinique Different Lipstick in Raspberry Glace

photo 4
Raspberry shades are always in the running to be my favorite. This particular product is a great shade for women of all colors, depending on the look you’re going for. For deep brown skin tones, it could be a great everyday color. For light or white skin tones, it’s more of a bold lip color. I like to use lip liner and build the color up for a bold lip when I’m going out or if I feel fancy! :)
