Okay, so I mentioned last week that I wish Duncan had been ‘A’ and I know that kind of comes out of no where for most people so I thought I’d explain here because I know those last two season 2 posts were already long.
Before we get into it, please check out my socials, like, comment or share this post or sign up for email notifications if you want to support my blog.
So, we meet him because he knows Vivian, however, he also knows that Vivian’s name is Alison so I find it suspicious that he would call out Vivian instead of Alison.
Secondly, Alison went missing like 2 years ago, he never heard from her again in those 2 years, but also never saw a single newspaper with her face or a segment on the news when she went missing, let alone again when she was found dead and therefore, as his story went, he had no idea she was dead. This already never sat right to me and he was also never mentioned to the Liars, not even with like a secret code name.
Then he magically appears knowing all this stuff about them and knowing about the friends saying he would fly Alison around because he flies planes and she would just chill with him, including the exact day she went missing??? Excuse me. He saw her ‘the day she went missing’.
Anyway, then he basically has bad vibes the whole time he is with Aria, for instance, forcing her into a plane with him when she really doesn’t know him at all then he forces her to fly the plane despite her saying she didn’t want to.
Anyway, the Liars just like believe his story, but he has no way to back up his story. Then he literally disappears and is never seen again, not even when Alison is found not dead and had been kidnapped, and we know that is also all over the news, it was a high profile case, he still doesn’t come back to like, see her, or check on her.
So, the only things we have to go off are his story, that while she was hiding from ‘A’ she was also just chilling with yet another guy, flying around etc. A man who appears to have no person skills and also hasn’t read a newspaper in years. That is the story he gave. And they believe him, fine, but I don’t have to.
Further, if you changed the music in this scene it would be super creepy. Re-edit the scene and you could throw it in an obsessive horror movie.
Overall, I think it would have been better if it was him because he randomly appeared, his story didn’t make sense and then he disappeared again. Because, honestly, I think we can all agree Charlotte as ‘A’ was so farfetched it’s unreal. He could easily have been just another man who Alison was messing with (just like Ezra, Toby, Ian, Emily) and wanted revenge on her so he was doing those things to her, we obviously keep the mental illness in the story which made him also want to attack the Liars. Even Mona as ‘A’ doesn’t totally make sense because she had so much going on, she was dating, in high school, doing extra-curriculars, being at home with her parents while also planning all this stuff and watching the girls every move. We have no idea what he had been doing or what he was doing the entire rest of the time.
Anyway, I just feel like Duncan is such a loose end that I wish there had been a reason. As they said, they didn’t think Alison wasted Vivian on flirting, well apparently she did…
Thanks so much for reading, if you want to check out some of the recent posts look below. You can also follow my socials, sign up for email confirmations of my posts or like and share this post if you enjoyed it!
1.So, was this all planned? Mona would have been ‘A’ already, or at least she was already messing with Alison so did she do this to force them down the road to see Aria’s dad having an affair right after, because if she did, that’s genius.
2.”I always saw you as more of a cute werewolf type” – haha teen wolf
3.They can go to their usual meeting place and Mona doesn’t know they are there and plotting? As if Mona hadn’t already figured out they meet up in this random abandoned greenhouse.
4.Hanna got arrested and Caleb didn’t come back early?
5.How does Mona have time to date noel still?
6.Like seriously the whole time no one says anything specifically relating to Aria being underage and therefore, Ezra grooming an underage girl.
7.Mike does not care in the slightest about Aria and Ezra
8.Why’d Aria start lying about her and Ezra again? Making that a secret only means ‘A’ could use it against her or tell the secret for her. It wasn’t her friends who made it dangerous?
9.Where did Holden go, I liked him!
10.Although, Holden also doesn’t care about Ezra! How in the tally of people who care is it still only Byron, Ella and Noel?
11.How did Mona know where they were going to order food from, already have containers to swap then manage to swap their food out?
12.They weren’t really trying to keep a secret were they? To yell Emily when you drop something.
13.Is it normal to go to a hairdresser to colour your wig? Why didn’t she just buy a brunette real hair wig?
14.Why would the dry-cleaner keep a coat for like over a year?
15.How did Kate get Hanna’s phone with the image on it to send around to the whole school, also that would be illegal in Australia cause like, distribution of child pornography, no?
16.*big flash forward spoiler* Why wouldn’t Spencer’s parents tell her shes adopted when they came clean about Jason
17.Why did Mona help Emily?
18.Isn’t it funny that Jason is actually Spencer’s cousin but Jason is still Melissa’s half sister but Melissa and Spencer are also only half sisters.
19.Jenna didn’t have a problem with Maya crashing at Noel’s?
20.Did Mona only send herself the ‘A’ message because Hanna cancelled on her and she wanted Hanna to pay her attention?
21.Oh look wren is being a creeper again!
22.That conversation before leaving Wren’s house, is the same as the one she had with Toby in season 1 when they first started dating.
23.I hate Paige
24.If Melissa had just told Spencer about Alison/Bethany way earlier it would’ve been easier for them to figure out what was going on.
25.Old mate from blue water high knew Alison’s name, it had been 2 years since he’d seen or spoken to her supposedly but he didn’t know she was missing? Or dead? Surely that made the news outside of just rosewood and when her body was found and a murder investigation started wouldn’t he have seen?
26.Alison was wearing a disguise but also telling this random guy all about her and her friends and was clearly leading him on too. Moral being, how many people was Ali dating before she left?
27.Why did Aria agree to go up in the plane? For all she knows he could be the killer, they have no way to prove his story. I wish he had been ‘A’.
28.Did this one really happen or no?
29.Answer me why they believe Melissa would be attacking Spencer, her friends, fine but why would she mess with Spencer.
30.Why would Melissa say that if she” knows it was Spencer”
31.Surely there isn’t enough evidence for a conviction
32.I have a little suspicion that just because you don’t work there anymore, that it’s still not a good idea to kiss at a school dance… then also go back to work at the school again after.
33.I can deny Paige and Emily’s “connection”.
34.Gum doesn’t actually mean anything, imagine trying to find someone, finding an Extra gum wrapper and assuming they’re connected because the person you’re looking for, chews on Extra.
35.Again; why did she start sending the texts before Hanna had gotten close with the girls again if her reasoning was because they took Hanna, also why’d she still try and ruin Hanna
36.The adult psychologist literally let Mona control her, make her leave town and drop all her patients – Dr. Sullivan literally just bowed down to Mona instead of telling the police.
37.Why would Mona even want Spencer to join? She seemed to be having a lot of fun already.
38.All the staff know Charlotte right? Why’d they let her just go mess around with Mona.
And that is every qualm I have with Pretty Little Liars season 2. Thanks for reading, don’t forget you can like, comment or follow this blog and check out my socials @simplymythoughts_blog and Simply My Thoughts Blog on Facebook.
So again, I love Pretty Little Liars, truly is it one of my favourite shows ever and has been for years so I have watched it A LOT, but some things just don’t make sense, however it is still a great show. So, here are my problems with season 2.
1.This just never made sense for me, the entire Ian falling off the bell-tower then his body being moved so quickly etc. never worked.
2.The liars let Garret keep the money from Ian
3.How many times can they say, Jenna isn’t A? I personally think it was safe to say that in season 1 when Jenna came back to school and they got a text while she was sitting at the table with them…
4.Is that a small room Mr realter? In my world it ain’t that small…
5.They found the phone but not the flash drive? Also, the USB just sits in the church for like months before someone finally finds it and gives it to Ted?
6.Hanna’s money problems really didn’t last long…
7.How did Mona have time to date?
8.Why would you say the name out loud before they reply when you don’t know who could be listening? Also, ‘A’ could have heard Melissa tell Spencer just how ‘A’ knows everything else!
9.How did Mona get herself into Emily’s open house as a genuine buyer? (to wipe Emily’s hard drive)
10.Why is Samara not in it longer – Samara is my top favourite of Emily’s love interests. Justice for Samara!
11.Yer still on school grounds…
12.Who was it that Jason was hiding in the house?
13.What was the purpose of making Jason think he hurt Alison when Garret didn’t even do it. Why did he torture Jason?
14.Just because you’re on a college campus doesn’t mean you can be a couple!
15.Pawning Melissa’s engagement ring was messed up, obviously.
16.The guy at the pawn shop seems so concerned about the $2000 he gave Spencer when the ring was worth way more than that. Also, a $2000 ute (truck) is so cheap?
17.So Mona broke into Emily’s house in the time between them going to dinner to riffle through her trash to reconstruct the letter to then retype, print and fake it having been posted?
18.Wren. As with the previous posts and as with all the future posts.
19.How old is Jason? To have been into aria for like the whole show…
20.How’d Mona get a key to the therapists office??
21.The Hastings are terrible about Ian being dead, I get none of them really liked him, but the second he is dead they seem to hate his guts meanwhile their daughter just found out her husband is dead. Like some tact please during this difficult time for Melissa?
22.When exactly did Melissa lose the baby? I seriously need to know.
23.You can’t tell me anyone would actually fall for this. Very low effort Hanna.
24.The fashion show is the best episode of PLL cant change my mind, the doll house is close though.
25.So Spencer didn’t have time to go to the meetings but somehow Mona did, she also had time to date Noel, and watch them all the time and follow them around???
26.Tresemme product placement.
27.Emily moves into that huge house with Hanna, which appears to be a three bedroom since they said Caleb was staying in the spare room but then Emily moves into Hanna’s room with her.
28.Mr Hastings is very high and mighty about the DiLaurentis’s considering he had an affair with Jessica and her sister.
29.The fact they believe Jason would kill his sister for money from inheritance makes no sense.
30.Why is Garret doing all this stuff when he didn’t kill Alison, I can’t figure it out.
31.Mike says ” I was looking for a gun or something I could use to get away from here” and Aria literally just ignores that for how do Garret and Jenna know each other.
32.How did Mona get Emily the tube of HGH? Was Emily already using it before and she just switched the bottle? How’d she know the exact one she would be using at the time?
33.What was on page 5 anyway and why did Garret care, or was it Wilden?
34.I have seriously thought this for years but – why didn’t Emily just say hey how about I give everyone my number so we can all hang out again soon and we can all chat about it. That would’ve been normal and counted as giving her the number? Why was Emily being stupid.
35.So Caleb can just cut out on school for a while?
36.How’d she make sure Emily got that box of cereal and also, product tampering and also how many boxes did she have to go through to get enough only ‘A’s
37.Did Lucas really break into a massage parlor to give Emily a massage for Mona?
38.Spencer getting in Ezra’s car could just mean he was giving her a lift @ Mrs. Montgomery!
39.They couldn’t hear their own voices coming out of the loud speaker?
40.Why’d she say involved when it would be like illegal and an abuse of power and so wrong?
41.Maya – Maya comes back and Emily acts surprised that she’s Bi when Emily and Maya met Maya had a boyfriend that Emily knew about, so like, it didn’t even cross her mind that Maya’s boyfriend wasn’t a beard.
42.How was Ali so mad at Jason that she was seriously plotting to have him taken out of her grandmothers will, to the point that she asked Hanna’s grandmother all these questions to test how to do it to her brother.
43.We’ve all been asking yourselves this question too I believe…
44.Shame they didn’t have Turnitin back then aye…
45.How did Alison know Emily was going to need to be saved and where to go since Emily didn’t even know where she was going?
46.Can they actually say for sure they knew what the murder weapon was, also them having a shovel isn’t enough evidence in my opinion for a conviction, you still need to prove they had it that night, had motive, hit her with it and buried her in her own yard with no one knowing. Also, how were they going to explain them digging up a mask and a set of boots? Also, ‘knowing’ the murder weapon is a shovel doesn’t make it that exact shovel which had writing on the front with coordinates? So, obviously they haven’t been able to do the forensic testing on the shovel yet, to me, that means they don’t have enough proof to arrest.
47.Garrett, what’s he really have to gain, spoiler if you haven’t seen season 3 but, Garret pretended to Jenna that he killed Alison, which to start with, why? But anyway, then Garret literally runs around for 2 years trying to make Jason think he did it and becoming a cop to plant evidence and steal the page 5 of the autopsy and frame the Liars, but, he didn’t kill her. Like, Garret actually didn’t kill her so is his gain literally just Jenna is dating him? It doesn’t make any sense at all.

Dawson’s Creek has always been one of those shows for me which I’ve heard of, or has been referred to, but I never had the opportunity to check it out until now. Recently Dawson’s Creek went up on Aussie Netflix so I thought I’d give it a go and let you know what I think of the pilot. So here goes;
We are first introduced to Dawson and his friend while they hang out critiquing TV things. So, Dawson himself is a movie buff which is kind of fun since I am clearly very interested in TV shows, so I just thought that was nice.
Then we are introduced to Joey, his life long best friend (right of image), Joey.
I really don’t vibe with this other guy, Pacey, (left of image) so let’s hope he gets better. So far, from just the pilot, everything he has said felt borderline offensive and also he is rude and some other things we will get in to…
Anyway, back to the start Joey breaks to Dawson that they basically aren’t allowed to sleep over together now that they’re 15. So, was it okay last week? If she stays at his every weekend why was it fine last weekend but not this weekend? Seems a bit suspicious to me.
I have heard the consensus is that Dawson is the worst part of Dawson’s Creek (but honestly, James Van Der Beek playing himself in ‘Don’t trust the B in Apartment 23’ is gold), but this is definitely a red flag.
And this too… Like, I know it’s Dawson’s bed, but look at him man-spreading, he is lying down the middle of the bed!
Outer Banks who? Honestly, there might be a bit more worth watching here, I mean, at least in number of episodes there definitely is. So, if you were someone who did happen to like Outer Banks or just like the idea of a small town show for people living on the water maybe this is it!
This is my main gal. Gotta love a woman who doesn’t take shit from boys and stands up for herself, so far I’m rooting for this girl. But they are trying to make me not like her, you can already see that her standing up for herself against rude men is portraying her as the bitch of the show, which is just so unoriginal. I love this girl, show me more of her honestly because she’s a powerful woman.
Now, these next series of events really threw me, Pacey had met this woman at the video store and flirted with her, which already gave me bad vibes but then, there’s this.
Yikes… “during school hours”
Um, also yikes…
Double yikes, already wondering why all of this was allowed and why the rest of them are friends with Pacey but also, why none of them told him it was super weird to be so into his teacher.
What exactly is going on! She’s his teacher! Also, he is a child. If Joey and Dawson are 15 then so is Pacey so what on Earth is happening in this show. We are only looking at the pilot!
Basically, Joey has been whining and complaining literally the entire show since a new girl showed up, but she was really boring in the episode so if you want to see her wait a few more episodes. I sort of understand where Joey is coming from when she acts like this the whole episode, she is just jealous of Dawson being interested in another girl because of what it could mean for their friendship and she is already worried about their friendship beforehand. And Dawson is kind of instantly obsessed with this girl but he is also just being nice. However, her being so rude and whinny the whole time really doesn’t put me on her side. Although, she is 15 so I guess I can let it slide for now. But, so far my least favourite characters are Pacey and Joey.
We then end with Joey and Dawson deciding they can still be best friends and tell each other anything because they care about each other so much, which is cute. The execution is kind of strange but humorous.
So, on a whole, I would suggest giving Dawson’s Creek a go, it looks decent enough as far as teen shows go. I think the friendship that Dawson and Joey have is also nice and kind of cute but I worry that the point of that is to ruin it. Either way, I think I will keep watching it. If you want an ‘every qualm I have with’ for season 1 let me know and I’ll make one!
