Pretty Little Liars: SlifeGoesOn
Nothing could top last week’s over-the-top episode of Pretty Little Liars. And while this week’s installment was noticeably slower-paced, it was still an intriguing, valiant effort.
Spoiler alert! Lezzy is NOT dead! (Come on! She’s a main character! Like they would really kill her off!) But, she probably wished that she was! Her mom was pissed at her for going to the dance with Toby, who skipped town after dropping her off at the hospital. Schnoz and Buggy were pissed at her for protecting Toby from the police. Blondie was pissed at her for denying her true amorous feelings for Maya. Maya was ignoring her. And Jenna paid her a visit, threatening her to give up Toby’s stolen psychiatric file.
Things were just as complicated for Rosewood’s other citizens when it came to maters of the heart. Buggy’s parents, Ella and Byron, struggled to reconcile their marriage. Their fighting put a strain on Mike, who got in a fist fight at school. Buggy didn’t have much time to figure out why Mr. Fitz was pulling a disappearing act because she was too busy receiving flowers from Blondie’s boyfriend, Sean! Schnoz tried to find common ground with her blue collar beau Alex, and Blondie flirted with Lucas, the yearbook nerd from the wrong side of the social ladder.
Lezzy made a full recovery, save for an unattractive, Ace bandage wrist guard. The same could not be said for Ella, who moved out, or Jenna, who bawled when the police brought Toby’s wrecked motorcycle home. “A” kept quiet for the most part, emerging only to gloat via text about Toby’s disappearance, and then retrieve the water-logged pages of his psychiatric file that the girls had tossed in the river! Stay tuned for the full recap!!
Rescue Me: Saint Clare of Assisi
So it turns out Lou’s heart attack at the end of the last episode did in fact off him. But it was only temporary, you see. And like Tommy back in the season 6 premier, Lou had a vision of the afterlife. But unlike Tommy, Lou only saw heaven, and not also hell. Point being, since other people are having visions of the afterlife, Tommy can’t write off his own as something he just hallucinated. It was real, and since he really did see himself in hell, he’s got some shit to figure out.
(But it’s not ALL about Tommy…at least we know Sweet Lou is going to heaven, right? Yeah Lou!)
Lou’s revelation is powerful enough for Tommy to head back to the church, so he pays a visit to Father Peter Gallagher, who returns as the priest obsessed with the Virgin Mary statue. Father Peter Gallagher tells Tommy that in order to avoid damnation, he has to seek out the one person he’s always relied on–Janet. Which Tommy does…only to find her and Franco in a compromising position. And being that Tommy has long suspected something was going on between them, this is enough for him to believe it. (Franco and Janet didn’t actually hook up. They almost hooked did, but Franco held back).
And with the thought that Janet has betrayed him, Tommy, (againagainagainagainagainagainAGAIN), finds solace in the bottle.
In other seeing-your-impending-death-
but-still-falling-back-into-your-dangerous-habits news, just when Lou is about to change his diet and hopefully lower the cholesterol a little, the guys at 62 Truck break him out of the hospital so he can coordinate the upcoming cookout. Also: Garrity and Mike become more committed to cancer-related charity work when they see an old firefighter friend losing against Ground Zero cancer; Damien goes on a date with a gal from the enemy firehouse; and there’s some bullshit involving Colleen and Uncle Teddy. Fairly complex Rescue Me episode this week, but I also saw Inception last night, so recapping this should be a piece of cake. For realz. And I’m pretty sure DiCaprio was dreaming everything in the movie.
