Pretty Little Liars: Our Damned Spot [Recap/Review]

Pretty Little Liars

This week’s Pretty Little Liars episode, titled Our Damned Spot, picked up where last week left. The girls are still making decisions over colleges and they still have issues with their respective boyfriends or girlfriends. However, there is a development in the A list, with a new number one suspect being made known.

Once again, the four girls do not act very smart, especially considering they are all supposed to be! They are donating blood at the church blood drive, when Mike is spotted doing something shifty. All but Aria believes that he is stealing their donations to frame them. Really, if they believed that someone was going to frame them for Mona’s murder, they should not have been giving blood in the first place. After five seasons of Pretty Little Liars, they know what A is capable of doing.

Andrew is back, catching Aria cheating from him. Rather than turn her in, he offers to tutor her. He did tutor Spencer after all. That is not the only boy Aria is getting close to, though. She meets Hank Mahoney, who she learns called her brother’s phone from jail. Of course, the viewers got to see that Hank is not 100 percent innocent, as he has the blood vials likely from Mike. Emily also notes that Mike was withdrawing a lot of money.

Emily and Aria tail Mike, with Andrew coming along. It turns out that he is the only one who is able to drive a stick, so he is a necessity at this point. Hank turns out to be Cyrus Petrillo, and the Liars know that this has something to do with Alison. After all, he pretended to kidnap her. The Pretty Little Liars do not get all their answers in Our Damned Spot, as Mike runs away and Cyrus corners the girls. Andrew scares him off, and Emily tells him that they believe Mike has a drug problem. Andrew seems to take the explanation. It is certainly possibly, considering most of the town know about Mike’s dark past.

Spencer is getting in deeper with Jonny, who convinces her to graffiti Hollis. If only Toby could see them, but he is too busy ignoring his girlfriend. Emily is not having much luck in the love department, either. She finds out that Talia is married, and the person comes as a shock. She married her high school boyfriend, and they just never divorced. At the same time, Aria is ignoring Ezra, not even saying that she got a “conditional admission” to a Savannah art school.

There was some good news in the love department, but not for any of the main characters in Pretty Little Liars. Ashley decided to say yes to Pastor Ted. It would have been good news had she not admitted to sleeping with Jason. So, that partial good news becomes more bad news when Ted starts giving her the cold shoulder.

It was mostly about the relationships during this week’s episode, except for the Mike storyline. Is Mike just out for revenge on Our Damned Spot, or is he the one that has been after the Pretty Little Liars after all this time?

    Duncan Albert is a boy from Alison’s past who was romantically involved with her and who might hold the answers to the girls’ questions. Duncan claims he flew Alison from Hilton Head Labor Day weekend, although Ali had claimed she took the bus home.

    Season 2

    Father Knows Best
    Aria gets cold while investigating in Brookhaven and dons Alison’s former Vivian Darkbloom signature red coat. With her dark hair spilling over her shoulder, Aria is mistaken for Vivian. She turns around to meet Duncan.

    Eye of the Beholder
    It is revealed that Duncan met Ali/Vivian in a book store in Brookhaven, a couple of stores down from the creepy doll repair shop, which could possibly mean that he is part of the trail to “A.” Duncan confides this information to Aria in a meeting on the Rosewood High School grounds.

    Duncan tells Aria that Vivian often spoke about her four friends. When Aria presses him about whether she discussed anyone she might have been afraid of, Duncan seems unwilling to talk to her about it at her school. He reveals that he and Vivian met up at a place near Brookhaven quite often during the summer Alison disappeared. He also reveals that he knew Vivian’s real name was Alison. When Aria reveals that Alison is dead, Duncan rises and turns away, visibly upset and heart-broken.

    During a follow-up meeting with Aria, Duncan takes her up in his plane. He explains that he and Alison used to fly often and that she used to feel free, safe, and in control (presumably from “A”) while up in the air or flying the plane herself. He said that Alison never revealed to him who she was afraid of. He even has Aria take the wheel for a while.

    He also mentions that he might have been in love with Alison, if someone (Ian Thomas) hadn’t been in the way. Duncan also tells Aria that he was with Alison the day she went missing. He explains how she called him, and he picked her up from Hilton Head, dropping her off in a field near Philadelphia, revealing that Alison was in town, 6-7 hours before she met up with the girls who believed she had supposedly taken a taxi from the airport.

    If These Dolls Could Talk
    When Spencer tells Alison, which could or could not have been a dream/hallucination, that Aria spoke to Duncan, and he said that he took her from Hilton Head the day she dissapreared, back to Rosewood, Ali responds, “He talks too much.”

    Cyrus And Allison had a twisted story

    In The Beginning Cyrus tells Alison they he could have told the police the truth about her, how they met and “all the fun we had together”. Alison tells him she could have as well, but then they both lose and this way, they both win. As Cyrus starts to walk off, Alison tells him that she found him once and he can bet his life she can find him again. As Alison says that this is his once chance to start over and he better use it, Cyrus turns back to her, “the way you’ve used it, Ali?” Turning back, Cyrus gets into his car and drives away.

    in the middle of the flashbacks Cyrus Kidnap Allison Held your Hostage and hurt her

    i am getting tired of Spencer Aria Emily and Hannah constantly fighting about allison story Allison is innocent

    Cyrus corners the girls. and Andrew scares him off, Andrew knows that Cyrus is a bad person so both of them were fighting 24/27 Andrew And Cyrus knew Allison had a history with her and Andrew is a nice person who was worried about Allison Stafey and made sure that Allison is ok. Andrew warned Allison to stay away from Cyrus

    Cyrus Petrillo
    Cyrus is sitting in one of the Rosewood Police Department interview rooms while Lieutenant Tanner questions him. Tanner asks him if this was his first attempt at trying to see Alison after she ran away from him, and Cyrus says that she didn’t run away, “she jumped out of my car”. Tanner asks that he had Alison blindfolded, and Cyrus tells her that’s right, “at least when I was around her”. Tanner questions whether Cyrus is referring to the car ride, and Cyrus tells her no, “since the day she came away with me… After I hit her”. Tanner asks where he hit Alison, and Cyrus tells her “back of the head”. Going on, Cyrus explains that he followed Alison into the yard and finding a rock, he hit her, “and then I carried her to my car”. Tanner wonders where Cyrus took Alison, and Cyrus tells her “Philly”, and that the place he was staying was off-street. Tanner questions whether the place was his home, and Cyrus says that he was crashing there and that there was a basement, “nobody else was there”, before Tanner asks if he kept Alison locked up in the basement all that time.

    Standing in an interrogation room of Rosewood Police Department, Cyrus stares into the one way mirror.
    In a flashback, Cyrus and Alison walk down into the abandoned basement where Alison introduces Cyrus to her friends. Alison wakes up from being asleep to find Cyrus taking her bag. As Alison tries to pull her bag off of Cyrus’ shoulder, Cyrus tells her to “get off”, before he engages in a physical fight with her. Slamming Alison against a wall, Cyrus covers her mouth so she cannot scream, and taking a knife, Cyrus stabs Alison in the thigh. Grabbing Alison’s bag, Cyrus takes the hand of one of Alison’s friends, and the two of them head up the stairs, leaving Alison below.

    In the woods, Cyrus shuffles aimlessly until Alison approaches and he tells her that he was beginning to think she might not show. Saying that there is a warrant out for his arrest, Cyrus goes on to say that he barely made it out in time and that it wasn’t the deal they made. Reaching into her jacket pocket, Alison tells him he’s lucky there was even a deal at all, and that she should have left him for dead when she found him. Grabbing the plane ticket, Cyrus tells Alison they he could have told the police the truth about her, how they met and “all the fun we had together”. Alison tells him she could have as well, but then they both lose and this way, they both win. As Cyrus starts to walk off, Alison tells him that she found him once and he can bet his life she can find him again. As Alison says that this is his once chance to start over and he better use it, Cyrus turns back to her, “the way you’ve used it, Ali?” Turning back, Cyrus gets into his car and drives away.
