Pretty Little Liars Review: “Bring Down The Hoe” (Season 4, Episode 11)

Pretty Little Liars

Pretty Little Liars usually prefers to play it coy, so we must be headed toward a pretty epic mid-season finale if they’re giving us this much information all at once to prep us for what’s coming up next.

Not to be completely judgmental, but residents of Rosewood, PA don’t exactly seem like they’d be prime candidates for country line dancing extraordinaires. But, that didn’t stop Pretty Little Liars from trying to make it work. Aria (Lucy Hale) took to the dance floor to show everyone that she is in sync with her new man. Coincidentally, the actress who portrays Aria recently announced that she is pursuing a career in country music in addition to her current acting gig. Take from that what you will.

The girls don’t get the same good look at her that we did later on, but they did get a gently used red coat as a parting gift. Which is more than ‘A’ gave Toby (Keegan Allen) and Caleb (Tyler Blackburn), who at last glance were running from the cops after Toby apparently suffered from temporary, partial-anxiety. Otherwise, what else would compel him to put his trust in ‘A.’ A person whose hobbies include framing people for murder, running cars into houses, and kidnapping children. Is this the event that leads to Caleb’s exile to Ravenswood? It won’t be long before we find out the answer to that question.

Cece Drake (Vanessa Ray) doesn’t look like she’s prepared to wait around for any answers, or whoever she was desperately redialing. Instead she chose option B – to lurk outside of apartment doors listening for any piece of incriminating evidence that she could possibly overhear. I momentarily had the urge to offer her a cup to put up to the door to aide in her stalker mission, but then I remembered that she’s the bad guy.

There’s been a lot of suspicion surrounding Cece, who’s been missing in action since the end of last season. Is she Red Coat? Is she ‘A?’ Are they the same person? Lucky for us, Cece who once was lost, is now found.
