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.

To entertain himself (and his fans!), Chris Pratt has been updating his Instagram with funny photos and captions from the tour.

There’s some real gold in there, but the best part is when he realizes that fans really want to see some pictures of Jennifer Lawrence — who doesn’t have her own social media accounts — and proceeds to very decidedly not include her!

Update: He did it again.

‘Passengers’ hits cinemas on December 21

J.K. Rowling and the producers of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child have just announced that the play is coming to the United States.

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child will open on Broadway in Spring 2018 at The Lyric Theatre, which is currently home to Cirque Du Soleil’s Paramour show.

An exact Cursed Child Broadway opening date has not been set, but theater owner ATG “plans a multi-million dollar renovation to completely transform, remodel and reconfigure the 1,900 seat theatre and turn it into a scaled down, more intimate playhouse, with approximately 1,500 seats.”

J.K. Rowling and the producers of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child have just announced that the play is coming to the United States.

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child will open on Broadway in Spring 2018 at The Lyric Theatre, which is currently home to Cirque Du Soleil’s Paramour show.

An exact Cursed Child Broadway opening date has not been set, but theater owner ATG “plans a multi-million dollar renovation to completely transform, remodel and reconfigure the 1,900 seat theatre and turn it into a scaled down, more intimate playhouse, with approximately 1,500 seats.”

While the script book hasn’t been well-received by fans, attendees of The Cursed Child show in London (including this writer) have adored the two-part event. The magic, characters, humor, and special effects are all remarkable and definitely worth seeing live.

The story follows Harry, Ron, Hermione, and their children 19 years after the events of Deathly Hallows as dark forces return to the Wizarding World.

Here’s the inside of ‘The Cursed Child’s’ Broadway theater

Said producers Sonia Friedman and Colin Callender said in a press release, “We are thrilled about ATG’s ambitious plans which will provide a once in a lifetime opportunity to create a unique theatre space tailored to the specific needs of the production over the play’s two parts.”

“The remodeled Lyric will include a smaller auditorium redesigned to the specifications of the Harry Potter and the Cursed Child team, as well as an adapted proscenium and stage that can house designer Christine Jones’ glorious set without swamping or compromising director John Tiffany’s brilliant staging. The spacious front of house environment will also be transformed to optimize the atmosphere and audience experience.

“But above all, ATG’s plans will provide Harry Potter and the Cursed Child with a bespoke home that will be intimate enough for a drama, yet big enough for us to deliver on our commitment to provide audiences with access to low priced tickets throughout the auditorium.”

J.K. Rowling added, “I’m delighted we are one step closer in bringing Harry Potter and the Cursed Child to Broadway and very excited by the proposed plans.”

‘Cursed Child’ Broadway ticket on sale date.

The Cursed Child Broadway ticket on sale date was not announced today. In the U.K. tickets went on sale roughly eight months in advance, so maybe they’ll be on sale by this time in 2017.

The West End production put 60,000 tickets on sale in early November, keeping the show running through February 2018.
