Pretty Little Liars is back! I know you have all probably been waiting as excitedly as I have for the show to start up again. So much happened in the final episode this summer that the last few months have been just excruciating. Not to mention, that Halloween episode was cool but did not at all add to the story (which is the part of PLL that I am most obsessed about).
Now, I just want to let you all know that I won’t be recapping or reviewing the show for you. If you are looking for that you may want to look elsewhere. Like here – I read this one today and it was quite well done. Instead I will be outlining a recurring question that came up throughout the course of “How the A Stole Christmas”…
There were many seasonal costumes in this episode. From Lucas as Santa, to the Salvation Army Santa on the street that presented the Liars with a creepy snowglobe, to Hanna and Caleb dressed as elves, to Mona as a Christmas ghost, this episode was as festive as they come.
But the most pressing question of all is:
What was with all the inappropriately dressed Santas?
Example 1: Spencer dresses as sexy Santa (a la Summer Roberts as Wonder Woman) for Toby … who can’t even move, so that just seems torturous anyways.
Spencer looks adorable here, but I’m not entirely sure how this was necessary or tied into the rest of the story. And can we just talk about her little line for a second? “Merry ho ho”? Who says that???
Example 2: Detective Holbrook shows up dressed super inappropriately at a party where he has investigated/is investigating many of the guests and the host.
I know you can’t see it too well in this photo, but Holbrook is wearing an open Santa jacket with a wifebeater underneath. Like seriously. If you were investigating a murder and some of the people involved may be at this party, don’t you think you’d at least put on a suit? Does he really hang out at parties thrown by teenagers for fun? As a side note, maybe we shouldn’t be too surprised because it apparently only took Toby like 3 days to become a cop.
And the most alarming of all…
Example 3: The “bed buddies” dress as Sexy Santas.
Did they all, like, get ready together? And what happened after they all showed up in their sexy Santa boxers? This whole situation makes me extremely uncomfortable.
