Goodbye Toblerone. Thanks for all the hard work.
We strive to be as accurate as possible here at the podcast, and corrections are always welcome. Some listeners were uncertain, and Benji's OCD demanded a thorough investigation of the question: has Caleb really been going commando for the past two days in the same clothes with no shower?
Let's take a look.
So there you have it. We'll be monitoring this situation as the season progresses. Somewhere, Sara Harvey is shaking her head.
A while back, Marco and I made some maps for the PLL crew before we visited the set. Here they are for your amusement. They are, of course, totally unofficial and done purely from our memory and impressions of the Rosewood geography.
I thought it would be a good time to throw a little Season 6A video together, since there's a chance we might know who A is in a couple of days, and I wanted to do a suspects rundown. Enjoy.
I have a present for you. I finally finished my 5B recap video, done in the style of the Gone Girl trailer. I think it turned out all right.
Can't wait for Season 6! Enjoy!
Sometimes on the podcast we will mention "The Theory" and not expand further, and inevitably, someone on Twitter asks for clarification. I guess I should probably write it down somewhere. We talked about this in the pilot episode towards the end, but I'll give a brief summary here. I originally came up with this after binge-watching the first season and a half of the show over a few days on Netflix.
DISCLAIMER: I don't actually think that this is going to be the secret twist ending of the show. I just think it's fun to watch the show this way, though if you are an Emily or Hanna fan, you may disagree.
The Theory: Emily and Hanna are not real. Emily is Spencer's imagined best friend/alter ego, and Hanna is Aria's. Tulpas, if you will. Aria and Spencer are the only two real people of the four liars, and they are both profoundly insane. Spencer is the killer, and Aria is A.
Now, when we start bringing Ali and Mona into this in the later seasons, it gets pretty dodgy, but it's especially fun to watch the first few seasons this way, noting things like seating arrangements of the liars, which characters drive the plot, how they interact with each other, etc.
- Aria and Spencer are both clearly nuts
- Spencer and Emily both seem to live near Ali and Toby
- Hanna's parents are divorced due to her dad's infidelity, Aria's parents separate early in the show due to Byron's infidelity
- Spencer and Emily are both good students, tall, and athletic
- Aria and Hanna both love fashion
- Emily was friends with Toby first until her prime self Spencer stole him away
- Sparia often team up for major plot developments. E.g. they investigate the Lost Woods Resort while Hanna and Emily wait in the motel room; they meet with Jonah the cell phone guy, the go to Noel Kahn's cabin with CeCe, etc.
And feel free to handwave in your own reasons from here.
I could not help myself, and cut another Pretty Little Liars video. This one is a recap of Season 5A, pre-finale. There are spoilers for s05e11 here, and the rest of Season 5, so you've been warned.
Hope you enjoy, and check out the other PLL video I posted while you're at it.
I spent way way way too much time on this. Enjoy.
As promised, we finally got around to working on the PLL podcast episodes we had in the can. More to come, but here's a taste. Go to the PLL section of the site for each episode. Should be up on iTunes shortly.
