Pretty Little Liars revealed fissures in one relationship, the strengthening of another, a mental breakdown, and a critical injury in “What Becomes of the Broken Hearted.” What follows is a recap, so naturally spoilers are included from this episode.

The episode begins with Hanna (Ashley Benson), Aria (Lucy Hale), and Emily (Shay Mitchell) discussing Spencer’s (Troian Bellisario) MIA act after she ditches first period as previously revealed in a released clip. Andrew (Brandon Jones) kicks Spencer off of the academic decathlon team and Emily’s words of comfort don’t seem to help her when she gets a warning from A in her sunglasses.

Now at the coffee shop, Hanna decides to go to Amish country to meet with Caleb’s (Tyler Blackburn) uncle while Aria resolves to talk to the coach of the decathlon team for Spencer. It seems like Spencer can trust her friends, if only she would tell them her secret.

Aria lies to Mrs. Fitzgerald about Wesley’s (Gregg Sulkin) stay. Do you think Ezra (Ian Harding) really knows that his brother is staying there? Cece (Vanessa Ray) dismisses Emily’s idea that Wilden (Bryce Johnson) might be Ali’s (Sasha Pieterse) beach hottie. Spencer decides to play strip quiz with Andrew in order to get her spot back on the team. Do you think she’s gone off the deep end?

Hanna makes her trip alone to see Jamie (Bernard Curry) and confirms her theory that he’s Caleb’s dad. He claims he’s not a good father as seen by his past stint in jail. Hanna reaffirms her belief that he should be involved. Emily prevents what could have been a good moment between Andrew and Spencer. Do you appreciate Andrew’s intelligence and good looks?
 


Wesley is banished by his mom so he might venture to Spain or Halifax. Will you miss little Fitz? Cece begs Aria to photograph her store’s merchandise and she decides to bring Wesley along. Do you think that’s because she’s worried about Ezra and Maggie (Larisa Oleynik)?

As a previously released clip showed, Hanna and Caleb argue over her involvement in tracking down his father. Whose side are you on?

Jason (Drew Van Acker) believes Spencer’s claim that Wilden is involved despite Emily’s attempt to get him to back off. Wren (Julian Morris) experiences an awkward moment with his ex-girlfriend Melissa (Torrey DeVitto) as he tries to help Spencer on Mona’s (Janel Parrish) behalf.

Caleb and Hanna make up as he confronts his fears and agrees to see his father. Unfortunately Jamie is late and Caleb gets antsy, but he does show. Meanwhile Cece congratulates Aria on snagging another brother, which Wesley gets the pleasure of hearing.

Jason and Emily go to his house only to find bottles and bottles of alcohol on his porch. An interesting message to be sending to teens. Wesley and Aria casually enjoy wine to set the mood until they have an accident. Jason adds to the mystery that Allison might still be alive by saying the prank of the bottles was reminiscent of her. Do you think she might still be alive? To the thankfulness of the Pretty Little Liars fans, Jason reveals that he is not friends with Mona, but rather is trying to find out from her about who dug up Allison’s grave. Cece’s lie of not knowing Wilden comes to light in an old photograph as does Cece’s connection to Melissa.

Spencer faces off against Mona at the academic decathlon and ends up engaging in a catfight. Janel Parrish’s acting was superb in this scene. Ashley Benson sums up this scene pretty well in her tweet below.
 


To prevent Wesley from spending a night in his car, Aria offers her place for the night. Cece abandoned them and lied to them about her location. Uh oh.

Hanna and Caleb share a sweet moment as Pastor Ted (Edward Kerr) hires Jamie. Jason and Emily get stuck in an elevator while Wren covers for Spencer to Melissa. Wesley kisses Aria, who responds until she pulls back. Emily fearfully climbs out of the elevator, just in time as Jason plummets to the bottom of the elevator shaft. Hanna sees Jamie pay for the pizza using the money she paid to the church box. Poor Hanna.

Jason survives to tell Emily that he lost the photo of Ali, Cece, and Wilden and that he thinks someone is out to get him. The other Pretty Little Liars come to check on Jason, but not before he disappears. Do you think someone grabbed him?

What did you think of this episode? Do you miss Fitz and Paige (Lindsey Shaw)? Do you trust Cece?

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

Which DCOMs do you plan to watch during the Disney Channel Marathon?

Next week we’ll be launching a fun new game here on Hypable where we’ll seek your help in ranking every single DCOM in the history of DCOMs. It’s probably a good idea to watch as many of these as possible so you can brush up on your knowledge base and rank them accurately!

James Cameron’s Battle Angel adaptation has found its lead in Maze Runner standout Rosa Salazar.

According to Collider, Salazar has been officially confirmed as the lead in Alita: Battle Angel, beating out Maika Monroe and Zendaya for the titular role. The manga adaptation was developed by James Cameron, and will be directed by Robert Rodriguez.

Battle Angel Alita is a manga series by Yukito Kishiro, which takes place in the 26th century and follows a cyborg girl with amnesia. Designed with spectacular martial arts skills, Battle Angel becomes a bounty hunter, who makes a living tracking down violent criminals.

As Brenda in Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials and Lynn in Insurgent, Rosa Salazar is already well-known in dystopian YA circles. She’s also had recurring roles in Parenthood and American Horror Story, and you can currently catch her in FXX’s Man Seeking Woman.

James Cameron has been tinkering with this project for a while, but his extensive and all-consuming work on the Avatar sequels led him to hand over directorial duties to Robert Rodriguez last year. Rodriguez previously served as showrunner on From Dusk Till Dawn (after directing the movie of the same name in 1996), and his versatile directorial resumé includes Sin City, Spy Kids and The Faculty.

When Cameron picked Rodriguez as Battle Angel director, he said in a statement, “Robert and I have been looking for a film to do together for years, so I was pumped when he said he wanted to do Battle Angel. He’s very collaborative and we’re already like two kids building a go-kart, just having fun riffing creatively and technically.

“This project is near and dear to me, and there’s nobody I trust more than Robert, with his technical virtuosity and rebel style, to take over the directing reins. We’re looking forward to learning a lot from each other while we make a kick-ass epic.”

Alita: Battle Angel has no release date yet, but we’ll keep you posted. Here’s the official synopsis from IMDb:

“Alita is a creation from an age of despair. Found by the mysterious Dr. Ido while trolling for cyborg parts, Alita becomes a lethal, dangerous being. She cannot remember who she is, or where she came from. But to Dr. Ido, the truth is all too clear. She is the one being who can break the cycle of death and destruction left behind from Tiphares. But to accomplish her true purpose, she must fight and kill. And that is where Alita’s true significance comes to bear. She is an angel from heaven. She is an angel of death.”

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is set to continue Harry, Ron and Hermione’s story. Downside: The characters that survived Deathly Hallows are suddenly no longer safe!

Details about Cursed Child, the Harry Potter play opening in London next month, are being kept tightly under wraps.

But one teaser J.K. Rowling did let slip? It’s designed to make you cry.

Answering the Twitter question, “Will the Cursed Child make me cry?” Rowling strongly implied that the answer is yes — “or we’ll be checking your vital signs.”

Bombarded with worried follow-up questions, Rowling (randomly) chose to answer “why are you like this” by reminding fans of what she believes her primary responsibility is as an author: To make us feel things.

Of course there’s no reason to assume the “OMG RON IS DEFINITELY DYING AKSDJFSHFJ” position (even if that is the first instinct of this writer), but it is an indisputable fact that for many authors — Rowling included — evocative storytelling is synonymous with, “I’m going to make you love something, and then I’m gonna kill it.”

Cursed Child takes place 19 years after the conclusion of the Harry Potter saga. Not only are there many elderly characters we might reasonably fear for (including McGonagall, Hagrid, and Molly and Arthur Weasley), but J.K. Rowling’s Potter series has set a strong precedent for killing off parental figures to usher in a new generation of characters.

On the other hand, we could just be traumatized by the original Potter series, and everything is actually gonna be fine. Maybe J.K. Rowling simply expects us to cry tears of happiness because we get to return to the fantastic, magical world she has created.

What do you think? Is someone we love dying in Cursed Child, or will the plot make us emotional in other ways?
