Pretty Little Liars: "The Guilty Girl's Handbook" (4x8)

Summer 2013 is turning into a drawn-out Wilden whodunnit season. And it's moving veeeeeeery sloooooooowly. That being said, his death is definitely connected to the disappearance of Alison DiLaurentis. I'm 88% sure of it. Last week's episode had a little bit of action. This week's episode was mainly exposition topped with more exposition.

Aria
Her brother Mike started taking self-defense classes with Jake. According to Jake, the guys on his lacrosse team were giving him a hard time. She's worried about him going out after a game, but Jake kept her company. Awww.

All Hail Gryffindor!
Spencer
She found her mom's intern with a couple of boxes from Wilden's case in her kitchen. They were sent to the house by mistake, so Spencer did a little digging. Turned out, when Wilden was just an Officer, he investigated Toby's mom's death. Eddie Lamb was working at Radley that night, so he was interviewed. By Wilden. Wilden's interview with Eddie differs from that of Dr. Palmer. Was Wilden dirty? Spencer seemed to think so, and offered that opinion to her mother.

Emily
After A sent that car crashing through her living room last week, she and her mom moved into a motel. Emily still met with Ezra and Zoe regarding college options. Emily was taking current events in stride, but her mother broke down when Em suggested heading to Nicaragua for the summer.

Hanna will protect her Mom at all costs.


Hanna
Helpful Hanna didn't slow down a bit last night. When the judge refused to grant Ashley bail, Hanna decided to take matters into her own hands. Again. She broke out the big guns and went to Mona for help.

Mona ALWAYS has a plan.

Mona
She coached Hanna through all the steps of confessing to Wilden's murder and making it sound legit. Thankfully, Caleb derailed the Hanna train pretty quickly, but Mona had another trick up her sleeve. Towards the end of the episode, she waltzed into the police station and confessed to killing Wilden.

Best Quote:


"Me, Spencer, the others, we all tell lies... but you're the only one who actually knows how to live in a lie."
- Hanna Marin

Thoughts: 


Can we pick up the pace? Just a little bit? Pleeeease?!? I feel like Wilden's murder is really being drawn out. I hope it's worth it.

If I had to say who killed Wilden, my frontrunners are Cece and Melissa. A looooot of people had motive, though.

Mona really stepped it up this episode. It was nice to see her being there for Hanna. She probably knew the whole time that Hanna couldn't and wouldn't really go through with it. It was nice to see the two girls as friends again. A little weird, considering all the stuff that happened when Mona was A, but still nice. Her confession should definitely earn her some points with the Liars.

The previews show Jenna face-down in the water. Will she die? I'm thinking yes. Remember a couple of weeks ago, when she seemed to think she was in danger? AND... she was killed off in the books, so why not in the TV series? In the books, the reasoning was that she knew about the twins. Is that the same knowledge she claims to have on the show? Or does she know that Alison is alive, like a few other characters suspect?

Next week's episode is titled, "Into the Deep." Could that be foreshadowing Jenna's death? Yes. No. Maybe. We'll see.

SinfulColors Mauve On Seriotype

Whether you call it a seriotype or smooshy... (I prefer seriotype) there is just something about this style of manicure that I can't get enough of.  Polishes Used:  1 Coat Fingerpaints Smooth Out Ridge Filler 3 Coats SinfulColors Mauve On Essie Leggy Legend Pahlish Autumn People Pure Ice Get in Line 1 Coat SinfulColors Clear Coat 1 Coat Seche Vite Hey there! It's been a little while, hasn't it? Sorry about that. Life happens, you know? Oddly enough, I didn't stop painting my nails during my hiatus. I kept taking pictures for a while, and then that just sort of stopped to. Weird how some habits die hard, while others don't change a bit.  Anyhoo... I found pictures of this mani in my files and couldn't believe I didn't share it! This was one of my favorite polishes last spring, and I recreated this exact seriotype/ a few times.  This mani started out with 3 fresh coats of Mauve On. I typically wrap my tips on the 2nd c

Fishbowl Friday 073 // Recreation

Every now and then, I enjoy looking back over past manicures. Creatively, it's just neat to see how far I've come since the days I started. Oddly enough, when I chose this prompt, I knew exactly which manicure I wanted to recreate. Based loosely on Fishbowl Friday 027 , today's seriotype nails are a RECREATION ...  Polishes Used: 1 Coat Fingerpaints Smooth Over Ridge Filler 3 Coats China Glaze Violet Vibes Essie Leggy Legend Pahlish Autumn People Pure Ice Get in Line SinfulShine Konstellation 2 Coats SinfulColors Clear Coat 1 Coat Seche Vite Looking back, I can honestly say that my seriotype game has come far since I first learned the method. One of the things that took me a while to master was the balance of nail polish finishes. While seriotypes made exclusively with creme polishes look cool, those made with a combination of different finishes really pop. There's more depth involved when you layer a metallic over a jelly neon and

Polishes Used: 1 Coat Fingerpaints Smooth Over Ridge Filler 5 Coats daniPro Forever Girl* 1 Coat daniPro Clear Top Cover* 1 Coat Seche Vite I'm never one to pass up a pink polish and if the name of this doesn't say it all, the color definitely does! This is quite possibly the most perfect shade of light pink I've come across. And you all know how I love the color pink! <3 In case you missed my review of First Kiss , daniPro polishes were created by Manhattan Podiatrist Dr. Gary Evans. The formula is 5-free and the polishes are recognized by the American Podiatric Medical Association to promote good foot health. Forever Pink is more of a crelly polish, so I had to use 5 coats to build up to the opacity you see in the pictures. Because of the sheer formula, it was a little patchy until about the 4th coat. But once this polish is opaque, it's a really gorgeous shade of pink and the crelly finish really made it shine. I've been into lighter sha
