Whose ready for the holidays, A style?
This year, the annual Pretty Little Liars Halloween special is being replaced by the very first Christmas episode. Some fans are upset, others are excited. I’m stuck wishing that we would have been given both! There’s no better way to celebrate any holiday than with the liars, but especially Halloween. It’s like tradition!
No worries though– you’ll still be able to get your dose of shrieks and thrills come October as ABC Family plans to air a fan appreciation episode where the cast revisits some of the scariest PLL scenes.
Onto the big question…. What can we expect from the holiday episode? Aside from the girls in cute scarves and sweaters, the sneak peek photos of episode 12 reveal that we’ll see the girls decorating and getting into the holiday spirit, mainly Emily and Paige. Are they back together? Just friends?
Caleb and Hannah visit Emily, whose setting up the manger. An interesting change for the dark tone of PLL. I hope A doesn’t ruin the pretty decorations!
Ezra is carving pumpkins and than seen bringing pies over. Maybe he’s going to a Montgomery Thanksgiving dinner? Wouldn’t that be a treat– two holidays in one! Although it doesn’t look like Aria is too happy to see Ezra at her house for dinner?
And most importantly… we finally meet Mona’s mom and see her lair. Well, her room, which is much girlier than I imagined. Why are the liars all at her house? Are they on team Mona now that they realized Ali cannot be trusted? Mona’s mom looks pretty happy that her daughter has friends over… If she only knew.
Aria and Holbrook? New couple alert? There’s something off about the older professionals in Rosewood always hitting on high school girls. Holbrook tried to strike up a friendship with Hannah earlier in the season too. Whatever these two are talking about doesn’t look unpleasant. There’s actually a smile on Holbrook’s face! Was he visiting Aria at Radley? It seems like she’s still volunteering at the mental hospital hoping to get some answers on Bethany Young. Did Holbrook come to protect Aria after a painting incident? You know the police here don’t have anything better to do..
Spencer and Mona teaming up to sneak into Radley? You know there isn’t anyone that knows the hospital better than these two. But what are the looking for? Where are they breaking into? Is Aria volunteering to distract the other workers? The two have ID’s on so maybe their also volunteering in a different ward? No… stealing keys isn’t volunteering.
Honestly, so much Mona in this episode! She has to be the key to everything! Is it December yet?

9 TV Shows to Watch After Thanksgiving Dinner
Thanksgiving brings together friends and family for a shared meal.
But after all the turkey, sides, and pie is cleared off the plate, the only acceptable activity is binge-watching some feel-good TV shows.
Here’s what you should watch post-Thanksgiving dinner!
You’ll be just as surprised as Mel to fall in love with the picturesque town of Virgin River. Come for the views, stay for the Jack.
Hart of Zoe
Dr. Zoe Hart arrives in Alabama looking for a fresh start and learns that the Southern way of living might actually be what’s best for her.
An unbreakable mother and daughter bond, a charming town that would make any Lifetime movie jealous, and an unspoken love for coffee? Say no more.
Selena + Chef
You might know her as a Disney Channel actress and pop star, but now, she’s adding chef to her resume. And since Thanksgiving is all about food, this is one show you don’t want to pass up.
There are only nine episodes available, but the NBC series has gripped audiences as it ponders how much impact one small choice can have on the rest of your life.
The modern-day update to the Chuck Norris classic hones in on family over everything with a side of roundhouse kicks.
A Million Little Things
A group from Boston bond under the unlikeliest of circumstances and get a much-needed wake-up call following the death of a close friend.
Though it falls into the “sci-fi mystery” category, La Brea hinges on a family determined to find their way back to each other despite all the obstacles standing in their way and all the sacrifices needed to be made.
Dream Home Makeover
If there’s ever a time to get inspired for a home makeover, it’s after the holidays (and during Black Friday when everything is on sale!) And the McGee family is the cherry on top!
This is… a no-brainer. No show captures the essence of what it means to be a complicated, loving, flawed, and fulfilled family more than this NBC drama.
‘Manifest’ Starts Production – When Will Season 4 Premiere?
It’s official — Manifest Season 4 is taking off.
Production on the resurrected show has officially begun, and while fans are thrilled, the cast members are flying at high altitudes.
J.R Ramirez, who plays Jared Vasquez on the drama, shared a glimpse of his first day back on set.
“Walking through the stages this am… Just felt different,” Ramirez wrote on Instagram next to a photo by his dressing room.
“I’ve been working in this business for almost two decades now and I know to land a team of Cast n Crew that is as Collaborative, Dedicated and in my opinion (Most Importantly) “Ego Checked” as these Beautifully Talented Humans are… well it RARELY happens,” he added.
“It’s only day one and you can already feel the Level of Appreciation this group has for the Magical Ride that is Manifest!” he continued. “But let’s keep it real… The reality is ALL of This Magic is happening because of YOU guys! You guys made this happen! We Love You. Can’t wait for you to see how it all comes together…”
Vazquez is a police lieutenant that often helps the Stone family as they try to figure out the mystery of Flight 828. He’s also Michaela’s former fiancé.
Josh Dallas, who plays Ben Stone, also took to Instagram to mark the beginning of season 4. He posted a photo of the script and Ben’s iconic black-framed spectacles with the caption: “Something’s happening. #mainfest season 4 has begun!! Nothing will be the same.”
Netflix saved the show months after NBC pulled the plug on it despite fan pleas and petitions.
The streamer renewed the supernatural drama for a fourth and final season to tie up loose ends, give fans closure, and finally reveal the mystery of what actually happened to flight 828.
