Ankle Monitor Drama in “Plea,” Episode 4×22 of Revenge

Share Button

Highlights from the beginning of the Episode: Stay Tuned for More!

“I’m not pleading guilty to anything!” Emily/ Amanda adamantly declares at her hearing at the beginning of the episode. When the judge awarded her house arrest and warned her of the harsh consequences that would come if she violated it, one would think that she’d be on her best behavior. Then one would remember that this is Emily/Amanda we’re talking about, and as Nolan recently put it, “Emily Thorne wasn’t built for good.” Ben called this one, the second Emily got an ankle monitor, she started dreaming up schemes to escape. With the help of Nolan and David, she briefly succeeded before landing herself back in prison. Let’s start off with Emily’s criminal behavior of leaving her house in clear violation of her house arrest. Despite David’s begging and attempt at being a strict father with rules, Emily quickly snuck out after receiving her monitor.

Good news: TVs and Law Degrees: REVAMP

ANNOUNCEMENT GOOD NEWS

I have been thinking about how to change this blog to make it easier for me to maintain and better for you readers. I finally figured out how to do it. Presently, my entries come out too long; I know that. They often take so long to do, that I would find myself “forcing” myself to do something I love, which was not what I was going for when I started this blog. It would take hours to watch episodes over again to make sure I got every detail. I have been taking a break and focusing on a happy medium/ compromise so that this blog could be successful.

FROM NOW ON: I will be choosing the glaring, INTERESTING, broken laws; the ones that stand out to me the most in episodes of our favorite tv shows. Instead of one long entry, if an episode has a lot I want to cover, I will do more than one entry. These entries will be shorter — don’t worry, they will never be TOO SHORT; I don’t believe myself to be capable. They will be shorter than my current entries though, but more content rich. I plan on producing better written, more creative, well researched articles by implementing this new method. This will benefit both me as a writer and my readers; it will present me with more realistic goals and allow me to create the content I wanted to when I started this blog, and it will make the entries more enjoyable and palatable for readers. The best part is that this will also allow me to update the blog more frequently and regularly!

This idea came to me because as many of you know, one of my favorite shows, Revenge, is coming to an end. Because of that, I have been thinking about the show more often, and in turn, better options for this blog. One particular part of Revenge’s penultimate episode inspired this new idea, and I will be covering it shortly and you will see what I mean. I am very excited about this, as I will be able to provide you with more of what I wanted to when I first started writing this blog. If there is a part that I don’t cover that you would like to see, PLEASE contact me via comments and let me know. Thank you so much for remaining patient; I wanted to restart this blog and be honest with my readers about why I had been struggling to do so. I hope you enjoy the new change as much as I do!

PLL Theory: Toby is CHARLES/Big A, CeCe is Red Coat/A, Melissa is Uber A: A PLL Novel

Share Button

I haven’t posted in awhile, so I am sharing a PLL theory that I worked really hard putting together. I’d appreciate reblogs if you have tumblr, or other types of sharing so that more people can check it out too. It includes a LOT of PLL characters; the ones in the title play the biggest role, but they have help from people like Wren, Wilden and MORE.

 

Here it is: http://kkthanks.tumblr.com/post/117262787568/toby-is-charles-big-a-cece-is-red-coat-a

Don’t miss this one. I’ll be forcing myself to get back on the tv+ broken laws topic, but for now I hope you enjoy my other writing!

PLL theory (for now) Mona and Ali 2.0

Share Button

My FINAL writing course ends relatively soon (within a matter of weeks) and once that happens, all of my writing time will be devoted to this blog and its initial purpose, pointing out the laws characters break in TV shows. I will catch up on the 3 shows I currently cover (I currently am working on a PLL entry) and I plan to do at least one guest entry on Better Call Saul. It will be a trial run to see how it goes, because I think it will be perfect for this blog. For now, for those of you who are fans of PLL, I am posting a theory regarding Ali, Mona, CeCe and Jason. It revisits one of my original theories about Ali and Mona secretly working together. Check it out, and I can’t wait to get back into the swing of things.

Mona and Ali 2.0:

Mona and Ali have always been rivals. They’ve been two characters that all of us love to hate. Mona and Ali are both unreliable narrators, causing the girls to think both of them were lying at times when they may have been telling the truth about important clues regarding Big A.

The girls recently admitted out loud that they wrongfully accused Alison of being A. They wrongfully accused her of LYING to them about being A. They’ve accused Mona of lying to them on many occasions too, which makes sense considering that she was A. But what if the two biggest liars on the show only really had ONE big secret?

What if Alison and Mona TRULY have been working together in secret the ENTIRE time? I’ve theorized about this in the past, before we learned that Alison was alive. I have found more support for this theory in recent episodes, though. It’s very possible that Alison and Mona, the show’s biggest “enemies,” have secretly been a team this whole time, and the girls didn’t figure it out because they were too busy accusing both Ali and Mona of lying to them.

I have been very busy lately, but PLEASE stay with me, guys. I’m very inspired, and this blog is going to make a comeback in a huge way. You won’t want to miss it!

Just so anyone reading is aware, I’ll be out of the country until next week, but “wait for it” as Alison from PLL would say. While Revenge is on hiatus I’ll be covering the stuff that went on in its most recent episodes. I have my work cut out for me with PLL and How To Get Away With Murder too!

“They Don’t Allow Fireworks In Prison”: The Broken Laws in PLL 5×15, “Through A Glass, Darkly”

Share Button

At the beginning of the episode, the girls attend Mona’s Hawaiian-themed funeral which takes place three months after her death. Her body hasn’t been found, but Mrs. Vanderwaal filled a casket with Mona’s keepsakes. She’s looking for closure, but Alison shows up to extend her supposed condolences and to insist that she had nothing to do with Mona’s murder. Mrs. Vanderwaal greets Ali with a loud slap in the face. It’s the kind of slap that I almost don’t want to write about because Ali deserved it so much, yet it’s still against the law.

Broken Law # 1 Alert!

18 PA Cons. § 2701. Simple assault (in relevant part).

Kill me, Kill me, Kill me… Puppy Dog… Broken Laws in How To Get Away With Murder 1×09

Share Button

In the mid-season finale of How To Get Away With Murder, we finally found out the answer to the question we’ve had since day one, who killed Sam! It turns out that Wes, “the puppy dog,” did it with a little help from his friends. Sam definitely didn’t go down without a big fight, though! Now, it’s time for the broken law breakdown.

Since Sam has the least time as a living character in this episode, we’ll begin with him. The episode starts with Sam having an epic argument with Annalise, both of them coming up with the worst possible insults. Insulting your spouse and screaming that she’s a vile piece of ass may not be against the law, but Sam takes it way too far when he violently grabs Annalise by the neck and begins to choke her.

Broken Law # 1 Alert!

Sam’s conduct towards Annalise: Simple assault – 18 Pa. Cons. Stat. § 2701 (in relevant part)
