Part 2 of 3: Team Cray
Aria's cold from last episode came to an ugly head this week but through the haze, she finally realized that Meredith isn't what she seems. Thanks for catching up, Aria. It's like you don't even watch this show.
If you did, you would not be swayed by Meredith's perfect blonde hair and her super-convincing concerned face. Because if we learned anything this week it's that this bitch be cray y'all. CRAY! Don't get me wrong, I love this super sleek, black pencil skirt and that sheer white blouse borrowed from Lady Mary's wardrobe. And that gorge wide belt is totally the cherry on top. I might grant her a pardon for her psychosis, despite all evidence to the contrary.
Exhibit number eleventy: She's got the crazy eyes. Yes, Meredith is gorgeous and has really pretty earrings, but Aria? We need to have a serious talk about trust and naiveté.
While Meredith's busy trying to throw Ella off her track, Aria has a crazy dream/not dream/hallucination/whatever. Ali visits her in these mint green jeans with white cork wedges which would be perfect for a picnic. Maybe she should have visited Emily instead. Do we think Ali only ever dresses in summer clothes because that's when she "died"?
But honestly who the eff cares what she looks like when she literally says to Aria: "Do I look dead do you?" WHAT?! Is she serious? Enough with the riddles woman, we need answers!
Ali does look divine, though, in this delicate white lace tank. I guess she was Aria's angel since she warned her about Meredith's poisonous tea and told her the truth or whatever about Aria's dad. Saint Ali!
I'm also really digging the thin sparkly belt. Sparkles, sparkles, sparkles. And her tank looks even more angelic from the back. I wish we could see the whole outfit because I know I absolutely love the whole ensemble.
But you GUYSS! Ali picked Aria for what?! What was she talking about? Then she leaves the doll by the door and when Aria wakes up, the doll is still there! Did Aria sleep walk and put it there? Was Alison actually in the room? Seriously, weirdest. Scene. Ever. Also, FYI I'm really over this whole doll thing. Like enough already. We get it, they amp up the creep factor. But I'm done.
Once Aria realizes she's been made prisoner, she breaks a mirror. What up, 7 years bad luck. I don't think you can afford any more bad juju, girl.
And now this bitch be cray!
Meanwhile at the drugstore, Meredith dons a nicely fitted, yet very unnecessary, burgundy suit jacket. She likes adding jackets to things, doesn't she? Bonus: you can tell she's losing her nerve because her curls are falling.
So, Hanna and Emily arrive at Aria's house. Because they've never seen a horror movie, when crazy Meredith leads them to the basement and tells them to go right on down, they're suddenly on the Price Is Right. Sadly, there was no Plinko in the basement.
But eventually, Byron materializes. Rescuing aside, could he be any creepier?
Oh, look he could. We switch to Flashback Filter and confirm it's not approps for a grown man to have secret rendezvous with pretty girls in the middle of the night, especially when they're running around in skimpy things like this lemon yellow flapper style tank.
Nooooo Aria!! After Byron's flashback, he convinces Aria of his innocence, and she burns the diary pages like she's on a daytime soap (that comes on after Price is Right?) Aria, that's exactly what he wanted you to do! Gah, it's amazing how good hair and a cute oversized raglan can cloud a girl's judgement.
Is it too much to hope tht Aria's got something up her sleeve? Another copy of the pages, perhaps? Hiden in one of her dolls? I just hope Byron believes that she belives him so he can stop being so very, very creepy.
