While there aren’t any new Pretty Little Liars Season 3 episodes airing until October 2012, but there are plenty of unsettling episodes from the show’s spin-off webseries, Pretty Dirty Secrets, to look forward to each week. Penned by Kyle Bown and Kim Turrisi, these brief yet important eps will center on Lucas, Noel, CeCe, Jason, Garrett, and a newcomer named Shana as they prepare for the craziest Halloween bash Rosewood has ever seen. And where there are tricks and treats, there’s drAma — and you betcha bottom dollar that we’re going to be living it up on abcfamily.com to capture it all.
Recap all the highlights from the second webisode entitled, “A Reunion,” below”!
In the first webisode, we didn’t get much in terms of action — just lots of suspense via diseased looking masks and Home Alone‘s Kevin McCallister pranking the Halloween shop with his Talkboy recorder (allegedly). We loved every single of it (yes, it was only a minute) but thankfully this week’s ep got longer (a whole minute and 35 seconds — suck on that, homies) and a lot more delicious…and that is a FACT because it opens up with none other than Mista Goldilocks himself, Jason DiLaurentis! Like a young Adonis, he struts around the Halloween shop looking for the perfect costume while chatting on his phone. (Pity we’re not there to order him to NEVER cover that beautiful face. That would be such a disgrace to all hot people everywhere.)
Oh and while Jason was pulling out all the stops with his gangster flavor, THIS was going on in the background. Ya know…just some friendly neighborhood kid macking on Shana, the store’s stunning employee:
As he slinks around the shop with impressive swagger, Jason turns into a PG-13 version of a Scarface character and starts threatening the person on the end of the line. “Soon? No, soon doesn’t work for me. Alright? Soon walked out the door the moment that check was cashed. Look — if I don’t have proof by the end of the week, I’m calling the cops.”
It seems, however, that the whomever he’s conversing with is not complying with the “rules” and gets fresh with poor Jason. Hilarious though, the face below happens and we’re giggling up a storm. He begins to say “you little” but then trails off. Here’s what he probably meant to say (obviously):
Nevertheless, homeboy can’t even finish a simple
insult sentence without being interrupted by some crazy chick:
Jason turns around and OMG! His eyes burn at the mere sight of a nasty beastie craving his manly attention. Who is it? Clearly, some lunatic in need of a major ugly mask intervention:
Actually, scratch everything we said about Jason being frightened. He’s more over it than McKayla “Not Impressed” Maroney. When he turns around, he seems less disgusted and more intrigued…sort of wondering how a cray cray chick like that would ever dare to approach a fine slice of Rosewood hunk-a-dunk:
The creeper then says, “You’ve been avoiding me” and proceeds to remove her mask and — GASP! Oh, it’s just CeCe Drake. It’s okay, everyone. Do not freak out! False alarm. We’re glad at this point to see her pretty, smug smile because heavens to betsey we love a sassy chick who knows how to make a guy’s heart skip a beat. Snap snap.
Is Jason amused by her lame little prank? Not really but a boyish glint gleams from his eyes as he takes in the beautiful glow exuding from her face. (Too far? Sorry.) Well, it seems like Cupid’s at play here…and he’s got a mighty twisted sense of love is all we say:
“Does that surprise you?” he asks. It sounds like a rhetorical question but CeCe doesn’t get the hint and responds, “No not really.” Jason then crosses his arms to prove that he’s not a force to be reckoned with and goes, “What do you want?” (Confession: It would have been so much better if he had said, “Whaddaya want”? It’s the little things…) “To check in,” girlfriend gushes. “I was worried about you. Everything that you’ve been doing the last couple of years.” Aww, how sweet:
Not so fast, girlie! Jason’s onto CeCe’s supposed trickery and gets sassy with her. “Is that all?” “What do you mean?” she inquires with a stricken expression written upon her face. “You’re not here looking for an apology?” he demands. She looks at him as though he has ten heads and then breathes a sigh of relief,” Of course not. You were grieving. Ali and I knew how to find trouble — I get why you thought I might have helped her run away. No one knew she was….” Jason then pulls a page from Edward and Bella’s Twilight scene in which they talk about him being a super old man with a glittery young body (aka a vampire) and urges her to reveal the horrific last word of that sentence. “You can say it.” CeCe pauses looks him straight in the eye and utters, “Dead.”
Now shit starts to get real. Jason is revved up and ready to play a game of “you broke my heart and therefore suck and are stupid” with CeCe. He tosses the first challenge at her: “You know what didn’t help? That you broke up with me the next day.” Hot damn! What?! Is that why the history between the two of them is oh-so-uncomfortable? CeCe glances at him longingly and then her eyes glaze over as she claims her stance in the melodramatic situation: “I had my reasons.” (Oh you got him good, girl.)
Jason’s not satisfied though. He rolls his eyes and asks, “You care to explain?” CeCe suddenly gets all cryptic and eerie and poses a warning, “I don’t think you want me to do that…” Jason then huffs and goes into a serious tirade: “You and Ali…always playing people. You two really deserve each other, you know that? You didn’t care who you hurt, did you? The moment she met you she took a step back from the rest of us.” When CeCe furrows her brows and demands, “What are you saying?” even more of his cruel yet true opinions stream out: “I’m saying she was a kid playing childish games until you came along and helped her take them to the next level.” (Color us intrigued. We’re not left wondering what the hell A & C were up to in Rosewood…gallivanting about making people’s lives super miserable? Probs.) Poor naive Jason. He made his point but guess what? CeCe’s fired up and ready to have the last word in this heated argument: “Oh that is rich coming from you!” “Excuse me?” he gasps. CeCe is not backing down. She aims to win this battle round, “You think I didn’t know what you and your little friends were up to? Don’t play innocent victim with me, Jason. Some big brother you are. What a wonderful example to set for your sister.” (OMG. Does this have anything to do with those perverted peeping tom video clips of neighborhood girls undressing? And does it have anything to do with the A-Team or NAT?) This is turning dark quickly and the spooky music even acknowledges the watershed moment:
But Jason can’t come up with an adequate rebuttal. CeCe has struck a nerve and remains victorious. So being the well-toned “man” that he is, Jason pulls a Draco Malfoy and walks away from the situation all the while muttering, “I’m done with this.” He pivots around and rushes off, far away from CeCe and his not-so-stellar past. And he does so with such grace and elegance:
CeCe’s not done stirring the drama pot yet though. She taunts him: “Go ahead, Jason, walk away, You know theres a liquor store around the corner. Maybe you should stop by and grab a drink.” (Oh good grief…Jason is an alcoholic now? Is there any possible connection to A’s high-end liquor scenes? Either way they are both lushes!) Jason looks ashamed at his guilty pleasure aka addiction:
Does CeCe feel guilty for calling out a friend in pain? Nope. An ex boyfriend with terrible secrets is not buddy of hers and she lets him know that the two of them are never ever getting back together:
Jason then storms off faster than a bull charging at a red flag:
And CeCe doesn’t appear too thrilled about their unpleasant exchange of nastiness either:
Meanwhile, Shana — the shop’s cashier — is playing a little game called “That Awkward Moment When…” and, boy, is homegirl having a field day with it:
Oh and best of all? Baby Faced Killer makes a surprise appearance at the very end to bid all the patrons adieu:
So what did you think of Pretty Dirty Secrets: Webisode 2? What do you think Cece was referring to when she brought up Jason’s shady history with his friends? Post your predictions below and tune in next Tuesday for the third installment of this exciting Pretty Little Liars webseries!
