Welcome to the latest installment of the Pretty Little Liars Round Table. Our panel of experts fans is here to analyze "The Bad Seed," as this ABC Family hit took us behind the scenes of the Rosewood school play last night.
Below, Editor-in-Chief Matt Richenthal joins staff members Steve Marsi and Eric Hochberger to pick apart various scenes and developments. As always, feedback is encouraged...
What was your favorite scene from the episode?
Matt: It's obvious, but it's obvious for a good reason: the shower scene with Caleb. Hanna's reaction to his naked bod was priceless!
Steve: The concluding scene. I sometimes feel like this show is far too glacial in its pace, but I was excited about the involvement of the police and where this may lead.
Eric: Gotta go with the flashback. I'm a sucker for any episode that does a solid job tying the past into the present.
Are you on Team Ezra or Team Aria?
Matt: Ezra, no contest. How selfish and immature can Aria be?!? He was contemplating a new job that would help his dream of becoming a writer and all Aria could think about was not seeing him often in homeroom?!?
Steve: Ezra, all the way. He was thinking about the couple's future by pondering a job at the college. That way, he could focus on his book, get it published and maybe end up on a signing tour... that takes him to California!
Eric: I was on Team Ezra... but weren't you two moved by Aria's speech in his apartment? I found it very sweet.Caleb and Hanna's kiss: Hot or not?
Matt: It would have been a lot hotter if it took place in the shower... I mean that literally. The water was likely far above room temperate.
Steve: Not! Not until Caleb cuts his hair, at least. I don't buy a relationship between a guy and a girl who could both wear pigtails.
Eric: Can I go with "luke warm?" Between Hanna's virginity and Aria/Ezra obeying the law/refraining from sex, I'm just anxious for a couple on this show to actually go all the way.
Less trustworthy: Jenna or Ian?
Matt: Ian. I don't think he pushed that girl, and I don't even think he killed Alison. But no way do I trust his motives for re-appearing and marrying Melissa so quickly.
Steve: It says a lot about how far Toby has come that he isn't even an option, doesn't it? I'll say Ian. The guy just seems like to think he's too cool for school. I hate people like that.
Eric: Jenna. She's blind! You can't trust her to drive, dress properly, cook...
