I know, why a whole section on the less fun clothes? Becuase we’re going to have fun with them. 

Sadly, it’s like ABCFamily heard Ann’s mad props for Aunt Cordelia’s Rebecca’s clothes and made her look kind of bland. Not Ma Mercer bland, but definitely not as awesome. At least she spent most of the episode making her patented bitchy, oh honey no face at Ma Mercer.

It’s pretty much the face I make every time she comes on screen. A sad sack brown dress with a brown purse? Really? That’s what you wear to the club? Rebecca’s dress may have looked kind of meh, but at least she wore some colour. And at least she’s a bit of a bitch all of the time instead of nicey nice (that has to be exhausting to be so nice). I mean, really. Ma Mercer, you didn’t even react to the line, “I couldn’t just take someone else’s child. Who does that?” Either you’re stupid or you really are that nice. 

 

Meanwhile, Alec is accessorizing with menacing looking desk accoutrements.

Honestly, I have no idea how anyone trusts this dude. He must have serious dirt on everyone and their dog. 

 

The dudes of Arroyo High don’t even try. This week they didn’t even give the gratuitous male shirtlessness we’ve come to expect from ABCFamily.

Boys, if I wanted golf shirts, ill-fitting dress shirts, dark cardigans, and boring henleys, I’d head over to the CW and visit Nate and Dan. Now get a better shirt or take it off already. 

 

I need some colour and less boring for a minute. Thank heavens for all of Emma’s outfit changes this week.

Char, this is how you do a jacket in this day and age. And have some fun with colour. The blue belt with the adorbs orange jacket? So much right about that I can’t even deal. 

 

While the boy can’t dress all that well, Justin can keep a dark secret or two. Or maybe an entire Box of Secrets.

Sadly, he isn’t that bright. Because he burns said Box of Secrets in the open fireplace at the Club.

Nothing suspicious there. Just burning secrets. Pay no attention to the dude in grey. 

 

And solving the big mystery of the night was the return of Real!Sutton – who is totally not dead and has impeccable timing. She looks pissed about having to wear a grey sweatsuit while her twin is parading around in her best colours. But that’s what you get when you decide to send dresses home in menacing pieces.
