Last week: N/A
Pretty: Not a great week for this guy. He had free tickets to a concert and yet he still couldn’t get any action from Aria. Plus, the tickets were for a super hot indie rock band! We’d hate to see how far he would have gotten if he were offering tickets to a Hootie and the Blowfish show.
Ugly: Note to Noel: When Aria knows that her relationship with Ezra involves breaking the law and yet she still chooses him over you, it’s time to take a hint. (In other words, we have a feeling that Noel might soon find himself hitting the Crazy Bread pretty hard.)
Last week: 3
Pretty: Everyone is taking swipes this week at poor Shelly Leonard and her cello playing, and Spencer is no exception. Hey, chill out, Spence — not everyone can be Yo-Yo Ma.
Ugly: Not only did that Jenna fiasco got blamed on poor Spence, but when we see her eyeing Melissa’s ex-boyfriend Ian as he walks into the memorial service, all we can think is, “Here we go again!” Spencer just can’t keep her hands off of Melissa’s men. It feels as inevitable as when we discovered that they were making another Chipmunks sequel, and yet we were entirely powerless to stop it.
Last week: N/A
Pretty: It had to be a relief for Jason to finally see Ali’s memorial service realized, to know that her friends are still thinking about her, and most importantly, to get the tip about Toby’s phone call to Ali. In fact, Toby better hope for his own sake that he’s already dead, because there seem to be quite a few people who will be eager to finish the job!
Ugly: The girls discuss how Jason used to listen to punk music, and yet, when we meet him, he’s become a tie-wearing control freak. Uh, The Clash frontman Joe Strummer just rolled over in his grave.
Last week: 4
Pretty: We gotta give the guy credit for impressing Hanna with his eBay skills. And to think, it all began because he was able to sell a bunch of action figures to 40-year-old men. (We sure hope that the wives and girlfriends of the guys who bought those aren’t upset that they spent money on action figures. Oh, wait — if you’re a 40-year-old who’s still buying action figures, chances are that you don’t have a wife or girlfriend to worry about!)
Ugly: Tension continues to build between Hanna’s current boyfriend Sean and her wannabe-boyfriend Lucas, so much so that we keep waiting for the inevitable fistfight (or makeout session) between these two guys. However, we’re worried for Lucas’ sake, since we have a feeling that it could be the most anticlimactic fight since Rocky fought... well, pretty much anyone after the first Rocky movie. (It goes without saying that Lucas is no Dolph Lundgren.)
Last week: 6
Pretty: So much for being shy! We see Emily and Maya totally going at it in the theatre, so much so that they even drop the bucket of popcorn. We hope it was worth it — popcorn ain’t cheap!
Ugly: When the girls decide that Jenna shouldn’t be allowed to speak at the memorial, we even hear Emily say, “We can’t let Jenna speak.” Wait — so not only can Jenna not see, but now the poor girl isn’t allowed to speak either? What do the girls want to take away next — her sense of taste?
Last week: 7
Pretty: Somehow, Aria managed to finally get the attention of Noel, in whom she’s been interested for years. Bu we do have to wonder what happened to Noel’s ex-girlfriend, Prudence (and her fake boobs). Maybe she’s off with Tommy Lee on a boat with a camcorder somewhere?
Ugly: Aria and Spencer have to push that giant box into their living room? We don’t know what moving company they used, but we do know that we won’t be hiring them the next time we have some kind of artistic water fountain memorial that needs transporting.
Last week: 5
Pretty: A great week for our glam gal! She had a relatively argument-free episode with Sean (at least, as argument-free as they get), she selflessly helped her mom refill the fridge with flavored water and artisanal cheeses, and she continues to geek out with Lucas. That said, we’re a little worried about what she’ll be using these days instead of a purse. Remember, Hanna, even if you don’t have a purse, that’s still never an excuse to bring back the fanny pack. Never.
Ugly: Talk about slim pickings in the Marin family fridge! That is, unless you’ve really been hankering for one of Ashley Marin’s famous yogurt-and-mustard sandwiches, with a garnish of tap water.
