One promo photo from ‘Cruel Summer’ could reveal Mallory’s truth.
Cruel Summer is the program for you this season if you were a fan of Pretty Little Liars as a pre-teen, teen, or even young adult in the early 2010s. Because it not only delivers the gritty, thriller series you’re looking for, but it does so even better. Because the writing is excellent, the Freeform show gives some of the “Who’s A?” puzzles without being as cringe-worthy, with even more opportunities to theorize each week.
Mallory is one of the people at the center of some of the most intriguing Cruel Summer speculations after episode 8. And one official series shot may reveal that Jeanette’s former pal knows a lot more than she’s revealing. [Warning: There will be spoilers for Cruel Summer to episode 8].
Mallory is the unlikely buddy Kate Wallis seemed to require.
The 1990s were the ideal setting for Harley Quinn Smith’s ‘Clerks’ reference.
In the small hamlet of Skylin, TX, Kate Wallis and Jeanette Turner were two girls who were entirely different. Things changed dramatically after Kate ran away from home and into the clutches of her vice principal’s residence in the summer of 1993. The vice-principal, Martin Harris, had his eye on Kate and was gradually grooming her, eventually detaining her at his house for months. Jeanette looked to jump into Kate’s previous life in Skylin at that time, having grown out of her awkward phase.
Nothing is ever the same after Kate returns, accusing Jeanette of knowing where Kate was the entire time. The show’s main allure is the half-truths it gives the audience, which makes them eager to guess what will happen week after week.
Mallory, who is played by Harley Quinn Smith, used to be an anti-Kate supporter. Mallory, on the other hand, is Kate’s close friend and confidante by 1995. From 1993 until 1995, Smith told Refinery29 that she was the same person. This is a condensed version of the narrative. I hope you found it entertaining.
