Relationship Recap: Episode 1.8, “Please, Do Talk About Me When I’m Gone”
The best part about Pretty Little Liars is seeing the girls hook up with people who are just plain wrong for them! Though we love the scandaliciousness of it all, we've noticed that all of this bed-hopping can be really tough to keep track of. With that in mind, we're providing a rundown of which couples are headed for a lifetime of happiness, and which couples will soon be changing their relationship status to “It’s complicated” on Facebook! Let the gossip begin!
ARIA AND EZRA Where we last left them: Aria breaks into Ezra’s apartment when Ezra won’t return her calls, which has got to be Warning Sign #1 that your girlfriend might be too needy. What happened this week: Ezra appears to have some competition from Crazy Bread-loving Noel. (Seriously, we’re thinking that if this guy were to go a night without Crazy Bread, he’d get the shakes.) Of course, Noel may suddenly get bored with Aria, assuming that medically-enhanced Prudence Finn gets another surgical procedure anytime soon. Where it’s headed: Is Ezra ever going to return to teaching? Not even the protagonist in Eat Pray Lovehad a vacation last this long!
HANNA AND SEAN How we last left them: Sean didn’t even have time to put on his pants for the photo shoot with Hanna. Yep, this guy’s quite the catch! What happened this week: Sean appears to be losing ground to Web-savvy Lucas, who helped Hanna earn some money by selling her purses. And saying that Sean doesn’t know much about technology would be an understatement. In fact, we’d be surprised if Sean even knows how to operate a mechanical pencil. Where it’s headed:We’d like to say that it was romantic that Sean took Hanna to that concert. However, it seemed more like he was using the concert as a way to set up his friend Noel with Aria. Since when did Sean become the Heidi Fleiss of Rosewood? (He, like Heidi Fleiss, looks great in heels.)
EMILY AND MAYA How we last left them: Emily tracks Maya down — as Maya is leaving jazz band practice while carrying her guitar and wearing a scarf — to tell Maya that she wants to give their relationship a second chance. So Maya is a musician who’s obsessed with scarves? Note to Maya: Sure, we all love Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler, but that doesn’t mean that we should start dressing like him, too. What happened this week: From the looks of all that making out, we’re thinking that this was a successful first date! Okay, so their choice of movie (I Walked With a Zombie) wasn’t the best, but not every date movie can be Casablanca. Where it’s headed: Remember when Mia Farrow’s character in Rosemary’s Baby realized that the father of her child was actually Satan? Right now, Maya would probably prefer to meet that father — or any of those Satanists from the movie, for that matter — than meet Emily’s actual dad. (At least the demon-worshippers gave out free chocolate mousse, even if it does knock you unconscious for a while. We consider that a small price to pay for good chocolate mousse.)
