(I wasn't gonna do this but) thoughts on PLL S7|E11 'Playtime'

pll-08

(Previously, on Tab in Transit, I started to live-blog reactions to PLL each week. It just felt right. Perks of being a mercilessly devoted fangirl of that caliber is that it has been 6 looooong months and I have convenient Sparknote versions of my thoughts on most of the beginning of season 7. So, now the show is back and obligated to justify becoming the vast time commitment that is being obsessed with theorizing this show. Let’s see how it holds up.)

 

  1. So Tab, just to confirm. You’re a grownasswoman who is actively avoiding social media and groupchats for fear of spoilers? No further questions, let’s begin.
  2. Wow, I feel actual anxiety about this.
  3. “What’s your mom’s name, Spencer?” IT’S NOT THAT SIMPLE, AMBULANCE MAN.
  4. “She probably walked into a closet.” No shame Hanna is my favorite Hanna.
  5. WHO CARES WHERE YVONNE IS AMIRITE
  6. This is moving way too fast I’m not happy
  7. No gunshot is gonna keep Spence from snooping
  8. This teeny pink leather jacket is too perfect
  9. “Welcome home.” Bye, heart
  10. Kay Ezra taking the bags Hanna pinching Caleb in bed all good things all good things
  11. Nothing kills the bedroom mood like “Grunwald is starting to rub off on me”
  12. Is it just the pantsuit or does Paige look sorta forty?
  13. Bitchy Ali is not the same as mean ali
  14. “All the things that happen in this town and those two get taken our by a DEER” um right? Like, can A control animals now orrrr…
  15. Is it weird to Ezra that his current boo can relate to his old boo about their post-abduction feels?
  16. This boardgame is a tad much.
  17. Is Hanna in a good place to give engagement advice
  18. “Too bad about Noel… Well, not really.” TRUTH
  19. Another gun… Would Mary shoot Spencer and then rush to her and pretend to and/or actually be her Mom?
  20. I don’t have problems like these because I’m actually the girl pretending to do yoga under the hand-dryer in the deodorant commercial irl
  21. I forgot Holden existed tbh. Coincedence that all of Aria’s flames have literary names?
  22. “We’re all adults now” OH OKAY RIGHT
  23. Aria really makes me feel like I need 8 leather jackets.
  24. This whole Mona-Hanna fashion talk is very season 1 and cute but where are we gonna get a design studio in 2 hours?
  25. Spencer’s desperate YOU WANNA GLASS OF WINE is all of us watching this show
  26. This whole town is some combination of Delaurentis/Hastings genes I guess
  27. COOL FREE BABY NOTHING WRONG WITH THIS PLAN
  28. Wait so Hanna literally makes these clothes in her notebook within a few hours?
  29. Apparently nobody saw any problem with Mona taking pictures of original designs
  30. Theeeeere’s high school Ali coming out. I know I wanted this, but I don’t know how I feel about it.
  31. Maybe the game is some sort of Jumanji portal to suck us straight into the heart of this twisted universe we allowed ourselves to get sucked into.
  32. She’s not dumb enough to do dare…?
  33. I’m about this Fitzgerald Spoby meetup though. I know I should be okay with exes who want good things for each other but I CAN’T
  34. Emily finally standing up to Ali yaaaas
  35. Yes Ali but all your memories being lies is suitable since you sit on a throne of lies
  36. Okay but like I could not care less about this fashion designer drama.
  37. And I’ve decided I’m all about this bizarrely premeditated game.
  38. Oh God that horrific Shadowhunters show is still around? That’s the only thing that I’m certain is worse than this.
  39. Paige’s unexpected wisdom tho
  40. *convenient plot tool to get the characters to physically say the word “endgame” since that’s the main PR buzzword*
  41. WAIT THERE SO MANY FLASHES IN THE PREVIEW AND THE RECORDING CUTS OFF
  42. IS WE GONNA GET ANSWERS OR NAH

 

*Note: I didn’t post this last Tuesday because I was feeling like I was going to be enormously disappointed, but after this week’s episode I couldn’t resist.
