Pretty Little Liars: The Wrath of Kahn – Marco…Polo (Review)


 NICHOLAS GONZALEZ

So Noel Kahn is A.D. (the flash drive footage confirms that he plays a major role in things if he is not) and Nicole was not one of the hostages.  Those are the two big reveals in Pretty Little Liars “The Wrath of Kahn.” Hanna goes on the offensive, although not successfully at first, and Emily’s ex, Paige (Lindsey Shaw) is acting suspiciously like a stalker. 

Aria, who has been forced to team up with Jason DiLaurentis  (Drew Van Acker), keeps having flashbacks to when they were an item. She and Jason find out that the man who did the adoption paperwork for Mary Drake’s second child was Judge Kahn. Doing the math, she works out that the Judge adopted Noel. 

While Hanna is attempting her own black ops attack on Kahn, the rest of the Liars are gathering information on Noah. A flash drive is discovered that shows an unconscious Spencer. Noah come out and pours blood on her and the floor. It is clear that Kahn has something to do with everything bad that has happened to the girls.

Kahn throws away Sara’s phone and Hanna retrieves it. She arranges a meet with Noah telling him she has the cell with his prints on it. She drugs his beer but Kahn refuses to drink.  He grabs the phone from Hannah and leaves.

Emily keeps putting distance between what she and the other Liars are doing and Sabrina (Lulu Brud).  

Rosewood  is hit withs a huge thunderstorm and Spencer gets a call about her mother’s car alarm going off. She goes to the house to retrieve the keys and turn the alarm off.  Seconds after she arrives the power goes off.

TROIAN BELLISARIO

Spencer watches the footage on the flash drive again and calls Marco to come over.  Aria is having second thoughts about where she stands with Ezra.

Scant seconds  before Marco arrives, a tree branch crashes though a kitchen window. Spencer notices that the outside kitchen door is open and she sees a shadowy figure move through the house. She grabs a knife just as Marco arrives.

He got to search the house and Spencer notices that the drive is gone. He returns saying that he could not find anyone.  Marco goes on to tell Spencer that Archer is not in France.

Marco still appears to  be very interested in Spencer. Although the timing of his arrival and the missing flash drive looks an awful lot like a Wes Craven Scream tactic.  Was that Marco in the house and if so did he take the drive?

He could be working with Noel or he could be working for Kahn’s father, the judge.  Either way, Kahn will have a chance to give his side of the sort as Hanna punched his ticket with a steel bar.

Next step: Rope, a chair and a camera. Go Hanna!

Next week is the mid season finale and it should be pretty interesting.  Will Kahn crack under questioning? If he does what will he reveal?

It is interesting to note that the dead Archer is leaving a trial a blindman could follow so there must be an accomplice.  Kahn is in Rosewood, so it cannot be him. Mary Drake is missing however as is  Jenna Marshall (Tammin Sursok), could it be either of these two or someone else.

Someone like the new detective in town… Who could be playing his own game of “Marco Polo” with Spencer.
