Pretty Little Liars is getting some new faces for season 5. Supernatural’s Lauren Tom, Glee’s Oliver Kieran-Jones and Girlfriends‘ Anne-Marie Johnson will all be guest starring, with potential to recur.

Tom will portray an attorney, probably dealing with getting Spencer’s record cleaned up after her jail stint. Jones will portray Melissa Hasting’s British friend, who becomes acquaintances with Spencer. Johnson joins as a pageant coordinator, looking for girls to participate in competitions. Um, cause they have time for that? It might be right up Ali’s alley.



Lisa Bonet is coming to New Girl.

The Cosby Show alum is joining as an education guru, who shows up when Jess and Coach attend a teachers conference.

Ryan the new science teacher (played by PLL’s Julian Morris) also attends and the guru makes Jess and Ryan pair up during one of her learning sessions. This makes her even hotter for teacher. Honestly though, who could resist Morris’s charm.. no matter what character he’s playing.

Billy Hargrove Deserved Better on ‘Stranger Things’ Season 3



Why Billy Hargrove Deserved Better on Stranger Things Season 3

This post contains spoilers. If you have not watched Stranger Things Season 3, do not continue reading.

Billy Hargrove made a splash on Stranger Things Season 2 as the resident bad boy, but it wasn’t until the third season where he became fully integrated and essential to the core storyline.

In the third season, Billy rose from being a supporting character to essentially carrying the series, yet he never got the recognition he deserved.

There have been a handful of characters who I could’ve demanded justice for in the Stranger Things realm from Barb to Bob to Alexei. Trust me, they all deserve it, but Billy’s storyline especially triggered me because he was cheated from the very beginning.

He was never set up to win, and when he finally did achieve his redemption arc, it was glossed over because of a bigger death; one that admittedly, carried more weight.

I’m obviously referring to Hopper’s death.

The emotional stock of Billy’s decision to fight through the evil coursing through his body in order to save Eleven didn’t have time to sink in or resonate before the writers ripped our hearts in half by killing the hot-headed-who-always-meant-well police chief and Eleven’s dad.

But here’s why Hopper’s death shouldn’t have overshadowed Billy: there’s a huge probability that Hopper isn’t dead.

The scene following the credits showed the Russian’s referring to an “American” prisoner.

The Russians referred to Hopper as the American multiple times throughout the season, so it’s likely that Stranger Things Season 4 will be a rescue mission to save Eleven’s beloved papa.

But Billy is gone for good, and still died a secondary death.

And in his final moments, the only person who mourned him was Max, who for most of the season was forced to turn against her brother because he became the Mind Flayer’s host.

At no point did any of Max’s friends show concern over Billy nor did they try to save him from the Mind Flayer’s control. From the getgo, they rode him off as the “bad guy” because he wasn’t liked around town and accepted his fate.

Billy may have been deemed the “classic bully” and boy, he did a good job at it, but Bily wasn’t a bad guy who deserved his death.

Billy was broken and tormented.

As we saw when El tapped into his subconscious, his father was abusive and his mother abandoned him.

Instead of dealing with the trauma, Billy acted out and became a womanizer.
