So, Bella wakes up from another of her dumb psychic nightmares that are never explained and she’s immediately pissed at herself for having such a disturbing dream the night before her wedding. Um, okay.

Annie: If I was marrying Edward, I’d be having nightmares, too.

Catherine: Fair.

It’s 3 months later from last episode, because they don’t want to do Christmas or winter anymore. (S: Yeah, this time jump was jarring.) We open on Mona’s funeral. Our four Liars walk out of the church, commenting on the contents of the casket, which does not include a body. Nothing has been found out since Mona’s disappearance/murder, and Spencer has been the only arrest. She’s negative about the chances of the Bethany letter they discovered last episode making any difference. She thinks they should have told Detective Tanner about the perceived Holbrook/Alison affair, but Toby says Tanner wouldn’t believe them and “needs to find out on her own.”

After the excitement of last chapter, Bella is all tuckered out and Daddy!Edward has to carry her home in his arms and put her to bed. I assume he explained something to Charlie, otherwise he would’ve had to shove her in through the window and crawl in after her like you do when you’re trying to move a big couch.

Marines: Yeah, I’m assuming that’s what happened. He was probably like, “meh. She’s asleep anyway *shove*.” 

Annie: I wonder how Charlie feels about co-parenting his teenage daughter with her teenage boyfriend. Because I think it would make me homicidal.

Eclipse Chapter 17 – Poor sport

As Bella walks the plank that will lead her to a UGH, OH MY GOD, CAN YOU BELIEVE IT? party, Edward sneaks up behind her and pulls her into a kiss. Bella tells us there is too much “tension edge” and “lip crush” to the kiss, which has her worried. Because Edward only kisses her to manipulate her, prove a point, or when he’s secretly trying to say goodbye.

Annie: Again, why the fuck are they together? There is no real passion here, unless you count the passion for murdering her, so what the fuck.

Piper is waiting in a salon, watching two women under hair dryers flip through bridal magazines. She looks down at the table where there is a pile of magazines there too. She picks one up, frustratedly puts it down, and decides to walk out on her hair appointment? Like, did she change her mind about her dirty hair? Was she just sitting there to spy on women reading bridal magazines? I don’t really know.

Piper gets into a elevator and two women walk in and excitedly show off their engagement rings.

Eclipse Chapter 14 – I <3 Wuthering Heights.

by Annie August 2, 2016 Books

It’s Wednesday afternoon. I know that, because Bella tells us so. Alice is planning on throwing the graduation party anyway, because the invitations have already been sent. They argue a bit about whether or not it’s appropriate to have a party with the impending doom hanging over them. Alice tells Bella that she will only graduate from high school for the first time once, so that’s cause to celebrate and do it right.

Kirsti: It causes me pain to say this, but I’m actually siding with Bella on this one.

Catherine: I mean, right? ‘For the first time once’ isn’t even a good incentive?

Alright, guys. I feel like we’re in the home stretch here and I’m going to try and crank out these last 9 recaps as quickly as possible because it’s time. It’s time to finish The OC and say goodbye.

So, here we go.

Ryan is in the kitchen enjoying his morning coffee, when Kirsten comes in and tries to casually ask if he’s going to invite anyone to Christmas Eve dinner. Ryan isn’t sure because if he invites Taylor, that seems pretty serious. Kirsten lightly laughs at him and says they make their own rules at Christmukkah.

Eclipse Chapter 12 – Looming doom

The next day, Alice informs Bella that they’re throwing a graduation party, and also she’s only telling Bella this because she had a vision that Bella would freak the fuck out if it was a surprise. (M: HOW THE HELL is she having a vision about that if it is in no way a decision Bella is making…?) (K: Contrivance.) Bella grumbles about it, and then wants to know why they couldn’t have waited to tell her until closer to graduation. Alice is all “Uh. Graduation is a week away, girl…”

Marines: Time kind of speeds up on me all the time. I get it. But more in a, “I can’t believe it’s June!” kind of way and not this crazy reaction Bella’s having because apparently she missed the June memo entirely.

Alice drops Bella off at her house the next day, since they are still pretending that they were having a sleep over to hide the fact that Bella’s half kidnapped, half not getting any. When Bella gets inside, Charlie right away lets her know that she’s got a message. Jacob called to say he was sorry and Charlie adds to give him a break because he sounded upset. He doesn’t add, “anything is better than Edward,” but it’s implied.

The previouslies are a warning to the audience: you definitely don’t remember any of this stuff. Theon’s dad and sister! Lord Karstark getting beheaded by a still-alive Robb! Bran knows a really smart bird!

Credits take us to Kings Landing, and then throw PYKE at us. Then Flayed Winterfaux, The Wall That Killed Our Dreams, Braavos, and Meereen. Yay, no Dorne! This episode is off to a great start.

Okay so we’re wayyyyyy behind on these recaps and it’s 1000 percent my fault. My bffs are gonna come in here now and insist that they had a hand in stalling. (M: I had a hand in stalling!) (S: Me too!) (C: Don’t listen! It was all me because busy and also blah.)

Luckily, there’s a previously to remind us what happened. Winn kissed Kara, Kara’s parents died, aliens attacked Maxwell Carlisle’s adult video store and comic book emporium. (S: Lolol.)

Supernatural S05 E16 – Ow, my feelings

by Kirsti April 9, 2016 Season 5
Thumbnail image for Supernatural S05 E16 – Ow, my feelings

The previouslies is basically a montage of the boys dying a million times, followed by a reminder that the Samulet and its God-finding powers are a thing, so clearly we’re in for tons of fun.

We open at the Motel of the Week. Dean’s face down in the pillow, surrounded by empty beer cans. He wakes to find two balaclava-wearing guys pointing guns at him and Sam. Sam looks freaked. Dean’s all “Must be Tuesday” about it. The guys do the typical villain here’s-my-motive-ing (Dean started the Apocalypse, Sam’s a freak blah blah whatever), and Dean realises that he knows them – the guys are hunters. Sam tries to explain, but gets shot in the chest for his trouble.

New Moon Chapter 23 – A kind of toilet

Bella wakes up again. At the beginning of every chapter she must wake up. It is the prophecy.

She immediately remembers she had a bad dream that was also a thing that actually happened to her and takes like, 3 paragraphs to remind us of this thing that just happened to her. 700% of this book is just Bella rehashing things that we already had to suffer through once. In another life, we Snark Ladies must have sinned terribly.

New Moon Chapter 17 – She’s a brick house.

We’ve fallen off pace a bit here, and it’s my fault. Time is so hard, you guys.

Catherine: SO hard. It went forward like, an hour the other day and we can’t be blamed for that. So…

Kirsti: I would say that I stole it, but Australia is on daylight saving for another 2 weeks, so it definitely wasn’t me.

Mari: Bella finds Alice in her house, waiting “perfectly motionless in the center of the hall.” So, in addition to breaking and entering, Alice is just standing there. Still. Unmoving. Waiting.
