Surfing The Aftershock… In A Wave Of Broken Laws (Broken Laws + TV Recap of PLL Episode 5×03)

Share Button

Note: This entry will also cover relevant broken laws from episode 5×02 This episode begins with a dazed Ali in bed, grieving about her mother. The girls try to help, but Ali’s dad and brother tell them to leave. The DiLaurentis men are always so polite to the girls. Kenneth doesn’t want any police or press at Jessica’s funeral, and Jason says he’s taken care of that. Judging by the family track record, there should be a barricade of detectives surrounding this funeral, but let’s respect their wishes!

The girls have clearly run out of theories; Aria nearly believes that Ali’s new dog is “A.” Does the think it’s Shana’s reincarnation, since the girls are so convinced that “A” died when Shana did? Spencer insists that she’s changed her mind about Jason and no longer believes that he killed Mrs. DiLaurentis. He looked so shocked when he saw the body, and cunning murderers can never have deceiving expressions on their faces! Ali gets ready for her mom’s funeral and winds up “coincidently choosing” the same dress that Mrs. DiLaurentis wore to Ali’s “funeral” back when Ali was “dead.” Ali acts clueless; she claims that she wanted to feel closer to her mother and had no idea that her mother wore the dress to her fake funeral.

At school, the girls are called to Vice Principal Hackett’s office. He promises them that the school will provide them “limited protection,” but he wants them to keep the disruptions to a minimum. Spencer expresses concern about Noel, Mona, and Ezra, since all of them know that Alison was not kidnapped. Spencer insists that they need to make sure everyone will go along with their story, but Aria protests against going to see Ezra to discuss their cover story. Speaking of that cover story, even if Ali’s suffering a bit of culture shock, she surely still knows that lying to the police is illegal!

Just to keep you updated, although there haven’t been TOO many broken laws, between episodes 5×02 and 5×03 of PLL, I’ll have enough for my next entry. I hope to have it up either later today or tomorrow, so stay tuned for that. My Revenge entry is still in the works as well. Thanks for your patience 🙂

A Whirly Girly PLL Recap

As I mentioned, the most recent episode of PLL did not have that many broken laws. However, on my other blog, I posted a regular recap of the episode. For next week’s episode, I’ll be back to covering the broken laws, but for now, click on the picture below to check out my recap of PLL episode 5×02!

Stay tuned for broken law recaps for both Revenge and PLL!

Change In Plans

I wasn’t expecting this, but this week’s Pretty Little Liars did not have that many broken laws, so I am going to touch upon the few that it did in my update next week.

As it turns out, the same is true for the first episode of season 2 of Revenge, which I had planned on covering in this blog. Instead, I am going to cover the SECOND episode in season 2 of Revenge (I have confirmed that it has enough broken laws) and I will have the “Revenge” post up as soon as possible.

 Stay tuned!

Pretty Little Liars is new tonight, and I’ll be doing a broken laws recap on the episode, as well as episode 2×01 of Revenge! In the meantime, click this picture for a #PLL theory on my other blog; it’s about CeCe and Ashley Marin’s connection to Detective Wilden’s death.

My goal is to have updates on both PLL and Revenge on this blog this week.

Revenge Season 2

For those who have read my first two updates on Revenge, as I’ve mentioned, my next post will be on an episode in season 2. Please let me know in the comments if there’s a particular episode in season 2 you’d like me to cover first, otherwise I’ll be deciding myself soon. I wanted to give you guys the chance to choose first!

EscApe from New York… Pretty Little Crimes From New York to Rosewood- broken laws+tv recap of PLL episode 5×01

Share Button

Note that some of this entry will refer to Pennsylvania law and other parts will refer to New York law. This depends on where the crimes of this episode take place.

The premiere of season 5 begins in New York, seconds after we left off in the finale of season 4. The girls are in hiding, especially Alison. “A” is still on the loose because the girls thrive on letting “A” escape. The police arrive at the scene of Ezra’s shooting. Noel shows up right after Ezra got shot; he tells the police that he heard a gun shot and ran up to the roof where he found Ezra already on the ground. Noel’s arrival seems quick for a person allegedly neither aware of nor involved in the chaotic events of the season 4 finale. An ambulance arrives to rush Ezra to the hospital, and the girls stop Aria from approaching Ezra, because that could subject her to a long night of police questioning. The girls devise a brilliant plan based on Spencer and Alison’s vast, historical knowledge. They decide, once again, that it’s best to split up. It’s worked so well for them in the past, so why not? Part of the plan involves Hanna calling the police informing them that the man who was shot is Ezra Fitz and that it didn’t look like an accident. Hanna suggests that the police send someone to the hospital because Ezra might not be safe there.

At the Hastings’ house, Veronica and Melissa discuss Alison; they have differing opinions. Veronica attempts to refrain from judging too quickly; nobody knows what Alison has been through during the past few years. Melissa sympathizes with the family of the other missing girl, the one who’s dead in Alison’s grave. Melissa emphasizes that she really thought it was Alison in that grave. Her tone is odd, like she knows more than she’s letting on. Melissa strongly disapproves of Alison, the walking time bomb, playing dead to her friends and family for all of this time. Melissa starts telling her mother that there’s something she should know, but Peter Hastings gives her a “shut up” look, and the Hastings family notices police lights outside of their house. Their doorbell rings just as they notice the lights.

CeCe escapes from police custody, and Detective Holbrook pays the Hastings a house call to inform them of this. He explains that CeCe knows that Alison was alive and that he thinks CeCe knows where the other PLLs are as well. He suggests that CeCe assaulted Officer Maple in some way and stole his patrol car to escape.

Hey everyone!

As fans of “Pretty Little Liars” know, the show comes back tomorrow. This means I will be doing broken law recaps of the new PLL episodes AND continuing to do broken law recaps on “Revenge” so that I’m ready for that show’s return!

While PLL fans wait, I have a theory on my other blog (in Q and A format with a fan) about Toby throwing the rock at Ali’s head on the night she disappeared. Definitely check it out, and this blog will be updated ASAP on both PLL and a season 2 episode of Revenge! Also make sure you’ve seen my most recent post on Revenge!

Chaos…And Chaotically Broken Laws -Revenge TV Recap+ Broken Laws- Episode 1×15-

Share Button

Note: Relevant broken laws from previous episodes will be explored in this entry. Because of this, there are 22 broken laws in this entry, which is why it’s longer than usual!

This episode begins with a voiceover in which Emily discusses losing control. We’re taken to the infamous beach shooting scene from the engagement party from the pilot episode as Emily’s voice over continues, “The best way to fight chaos is with chaos.” This time, we see a slightly different version of the scene; we see someone take a piece of paper away from the body before firing two gunshots.

Right when it seems like we’ve finally reached real time for the engagement party, we’re taken back in time, but this time only to 24 hours prior to the party. Nolan and Emily frantically search an empty hotel room. They’re looking for Amanda (Margarita Levieva); her phone was left behind, but Emily’s “revenge box” is missing. Emily insists to Nolan that Amanda would never betray her like this, then she uses Amanda’s phone to call whoever is behind this betrayal.

Tyler answers the call and refers to Emily as “the devil’s daughter.” He explains that he’s gotten out of the institution for the criminally insane. He warns Emily against doing anything rash like canceling the engagement party or calling the police. When Emily asks what Tyler wants, he responds that money would be nice, but so would vindication. Unfortunately, Tyler’s not just taking Emily’s word on his demands; he’s holding Amanda hostage. He has gagged her, and for a crazier touch, is holding her at gunpoint. In case anyone hasn’t guessed, his behavior brings us straight to:

Broken Law # 1 Alert!

Judging by Amanda’s screeches for help, if the gag and gun didn’t prove this sufficiently, Amanda is clearly not with Tyler by choice. NY PEN LAW  § 135.10 Unlawful imprisonment in the first degree.
