Pretty Little Liars returned Tuesday with arguably its best episode yet of season 3, “Misery Loves Company,” with shocking revelations that saw the end of one relationship and the beginning of a new partnership. What follows is a recap, so naturally spoilers are included from this episode.

“Misery Loves Company” opened with Emily (Shay Mitchell), Hanna (Ashley Benson), and Spencer (Troian Bellisario) visiting sick Aria (Lucy Hale) who despite Meredith’s (Amanda Schull) best efforts, does not seem to be getting better. Aria refuses the offer to have company and places her faith in Meredith. Aria wants to give her father Byron (Chad Lowe) the benefit of the doubt but will not keep it a secret if it does not work.

Mona (Janel Parrish) and Toby (Keegan Allen) meet at the lair in their classic hoodies to discuss upcoming plans with the revelation that there is another person in the A Team. Who do you think it could be? Mona says “she” in describing the person, so perhaps Meredith is on the A Team?

Emily does Toby a favor by watching his apartment while the plumbers come, and confides in Toby despite his abnormal affect. Hanna asks Caleb (Keegan Allen) for fashion advice, which he thankfully laughs at, as she gets ready for an upcoming job interview with a fashion designer. Caleb worries for Hanna’s safety as she makes him promise not do anything stupid. Those promises never seem to last in Rosewood.

Cue gratuitous shot of Toby shirtless and bantering with Spencer about her missing their anniversary. As previously shown in a clip by Hypable, Mrs. Hastings (Lesley Fera) helps Spencer plan an anniversary surprise.

Meredith checks in on Aria as she still is not feeling better. Aria wants her mom but her phone is suspiciously missing and Meredith is seen searching for the diary pages. This spells trouble.

Emily and Paige (Lindsey Shaw) have a nice date at school as Paige reveals she is starting to see a therapist. Hanna enlists Emily to follow Caleb to make sure he comes to no harm. Meredith lies to Ella (Holly Marie Combs) and has Aria’s phone in her possession. Looks like she was not the right person to trust.

Looking stunning and professional, Hanna visits the designer only to find A waiting for her along rows of mannequins. Meant to scare her, the figure with a noticeable male gait left a key for Hanna to find. Emily barely missed Paige and Caleb’s clandestine meeting to fight back against A and protect their significant others.

Aria dreams Ali (Sasha Pieterse) is in her home to take back her porcelain doll while foreshadowing about Toby’s true identity. When she wakes up her doll is in the same place where Ali had just left it and she is locked in. Meanwhile Hanna and Emily happen upon Meredith picking up sleeping drugs at the pharmacy. Aria makes her own weapon out of a shard of glass. Not things that a girl in high school should have to worry about.

Toby surprises Spencer with flowers as he attempts to recover the lost key. Meredith corners Aria and strikes her down as she tries to make an escape. In the midst of a thundering storm, Hanna and Emily attempt to find Aria when Meredith surprises them with Aria’s phone and locks them in the basement. Byron returns early to hear Meredith’s full confession about wanting to protect him. Byron tells the girls that he wasn’t involved in Ali’s death and reports seeing Melissa (Torrey DeVitto) outside with Ali instead.

Toby breaks into Spencer’s house to discover the key only to be caught in the act by Spencer herself. She gives him a deserving slap and his Radley Sanitarium badge. As Toby disappears, her mom comforts Spencer. Meredith disappears as Byron and Aria have a long-deserved chat. Spencer tries to see Toby but finds he has changed the locks as she desperately wants to believe that he isn’t on the A Team. The episode ends with Mona enjoying Spencer and Toby’s anniversary dinner.

What did you think of the episode? What do you think is up with Meredith? Do you think she is on the A Team? Are you convinced that Byron is good? Do you miss Ezra (Ian Harding) and Jason (Drew Van Acker)? Do you think fans will get to see Melissa anytime soon?

Pretty Little Liars airs on Tuesdays at 8 p.m. EST on ABC Family.

In his replies, he names the creature and states that, no, they aren’t fighting in space.

Then taking to Facebook, Gunn replied to fans who had questions about the image.

An updated synopsis for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 reads:

“Set to the backdrop of ‘Awesome Mixtape #2,’ Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 continues the team’s adventures as they traverse the outer reaches of the cosmos. The Guardians must fight to keep their newfound family together as they unravel the mysteries of Peter Quill’s true parentage. Old foes become new allies and fan-favorite characters from the classic comics will come to our heroes’ aid as the Marvel cinematic universe continues to expand.”

So it looks like for those who were lucky enough to see GotG 2 footage at San Diego Comic-Con this year, you’ve already seen this guy in action.

Maisie Williams freaks out over ‘Game of Thrones’ season 7 scripts

"Nothing will prepare you for this."

7:45 pm EDT, August 22, 2016

Maisie Williams finished reading the scripts for Game of Thrones season 7, and totally lost her sh*t on Twitter.

Williams, who plays Arya Stark, is no stranger to shocking moments on the HBO epic fantasy series. But it seems like the events of Game of Thrones‘ penultimate season are so intense, even the seasoned young actress is left flabbergasted.

Earlier this evening, Williams summarized her experience of reading the Game of Thrones season 7 scripts on her Twitter feed. Suffice to say, the stream reads something like a thrillingly ominous preview of what fans will experience when the show returns next year.

Maisie Williams finished reading the scripts for Game of Thrones season 7, and totally lost her sh*t on Twitter.

Williams, who plays Arya Stark, is no stranger to shocking moments on the HBO epic fantasy series. But it seems like the events of Game of Thrones‘ penultimate season are so intense, even the seasoned young actress is left flabbergasted.

Earlier this evening, Williams summarized her experience of reading the Game of Thrones season 7 scripts on her Twitter feed. Suffice to say, the stream reads something like a thrillingly ominous preview of what fans will experience when the show returns next year.

At first, Williams warned fans to steel themselves for the epic events to come.

…but apparently, no amount of mental toughness will be enough for season 7.

To summarize, Game of Thrones fans the world over are now sizzlingly jealous of Maisie Williams… and also, apparently, well and truly screwed.

With George R.R. Martin’s next installment in A Song of Ice and Fire still achingly absent, there’s almost no way to predict the major events of Game of Thrones season 7. Our only theory is that we should probably say goodbye to the feelings we managed to resuscitate after Jon Snow came back to life.

Williams isn’t the only member of the cast hinting at madness to come. Maisie’s on-screen sister Sophie Turner revealed that she too had advance knowledge while pondering Sansa’s future.

“I’ve actually just got the scripts for seven,” Turner tells Variety. “So I don’t want to say too much, because I’ll probably end up slipping some truths out!”

Seven forbid, Sophie. Seven forbid.

Game of Thrones season 7 will air some time in 2017, but not soon enough.

What madness do you think ‘Game of Thrones’ season 7 has in store?

L.M. Montgomery’s Anne of Green Gables book series is being adapted for television by Netflix and Canadian network CBC.

The new series will begin filming next month in Ontario, Canada. Though CBC will be airing it in America’s neighbor to the north, Netflix will be distributing it in the United States and the rest of the world.

Breaking Bad writer and producer Moira Walley-Beckett is penning the entire eight-episode series and will run the show. It is expected to air on the CBC in 2017, and presumably it’ll run on Netflix around the same.

L.M. Montgomery’s Anne of Green Gables book series is being adapted for television by Netflix and Canadian network CBC.

The new series will begin filming next month in Ontario, Canada. Though CBC will be airing it in America’s neighbor to the north, Netflix will be distributing it in the United States and the rest of the world.

Breaking Bad writer and producer Moira Walley-Beckett is penning the entire eight-episode series and will run the show. It is expected to air on the CBC in 2017, and presumably it’ll run on Netflix around the same.

The eight-book Anne of Green Gables series has been adapted numerous times over the years (including the well-known, two-part 1985 televised miniseries), but this will arguably be the biggest adaptation to date thanks to the potential audience Netflix could pull in.

According to Deadline, “the coming-of-age series will focus on a young girl who, after an abusive childhood spent in orphanages and the homes of strangers, is mistakenly sent to live with an elderly spinster and her aging brother. Over time — and thanks to her unique spirit, fierce intellect and brilliant imagination — 13-year-old Anne will transform their lives and eventually the small town in which they live.”

The new adaptation “will honor the foundation of the book, but will incorporate new adventures reflecting themes of identity, sexism, bullying, prejudice, and trusting one’s self.”

The series will be set in 1890. The first book was published in 1908 by Lucy Maud Montgomery and has gone on to sell over 50 million copies worldwide.
