Part 2 of 3: The Inappropriate Relationship Club
Guess who's back?!?
Awwww yeah. Ezria is back in action. In spite of my objections, I know many of you dig it, so let's ignore his black polo (because it's boring) and focus on the following moment:
I'm sure he'll never find out that she kissed his brother.
And I'm sure his son, mother and high school girlfriend will never get in the way. No matter how hard they try. And they do try
It's the only reason why the betweeded Lady Who Lunches would schlep down to a coffee shop to chat with a teen who's wearing leggings and a Project Social t-shirt that had a run in with the shredder.
Speaking of Aria's t-shirt. There was a moment early in the episode where I thought she was wearing a completely normal outfit.
White t-shirt, possibly leggings, with a great scarf and a fab arm party. Totes normal.
But no! Aria doesn't do normal. She does 80s hair band groupie.
Printed leggings and a ripped up shirt back? It looks like she might head home to listen to some Warrant after school. Which would be awesome because then her and Ezra might have something in common, since he probably remembers when Warrant was actually a thing and he can tell her what it was like to be alive in the 80s (even if he was kind of young back then).
Living with deep regrets from her regrettable relationship is Hanna's mom/owner of really amazing hair.
I wonder how she gets her hair to look so good? Those locks are just so silky and flowing. Not to mention that that colour is pretty great on her. Too bad her solo dinner was ruined by this guy:
You sleep with one crazy cop to clear your daughter of one shoplifiting charge and he never lets you forget it. And never leaves your kid alone. Solution?
Go all Thelma and Louise on his ass and mow him down with your car. Obvs.
Another woman with a sketchy relationship past (pour one on the ground for her two dead boyfriends) BUT is bouncing back with great hair, is Melissa.
I'm ambivalent on this beaded blouse. It seems WASPy and appropriate for Melissa as she heads back to school, but it's not terribly exciting. On the other hand, I love this bob style hair cut on her. Secrets and lies and inappropriate relationships are possibly the world's best hair product. It's the only thing that explains the great hair on our favourite ABC Family shows. I mean, she dated Ian and Garret, has some kind of past with Jason and his creepy high school club, and hung out with Ali, CeCe, and Wilden on a boat. Girlfriend is full of secrets.
One woman who avoided inappropriate relationships (but was married to a man who couldn't help but get into them) is Ella. Dumping his ass has done great things for her wardrobe.
Do you remember how we used to make fun of her for being frumpy? Because I sure do. And now she's a hot mom who looks like she had a Stacey and Clinton What Not to Wear makeover. The boots are great and the blazer keeps it all together and looking tailored. The maroon blouse adds a nice pop of colour and I love the simple accessorizing. Well played, Mrs. Montgomery. You stick with that hot coffee shop owner from earlier in the season. This look is fantastic on you and completely age-appropriate.
Oh but the winner of bad relationships this week is poor, poor Spencer. She's going through some serious Taylor Swift break-up stages. First it's all "Tear Drops on my Guitar" and no showers.
We'll let her have her break up sweats and focus on her interior decorating. There are three patterns happening here and it's somehow working for me. If I tried that in my bedroom, it'd be a hot mess of patterns.
She does eventually shower and get back to school, but things are getting a little "Dear John" up in there.
Even the chalkboard agrees that things aren't going well for our girl:
#despair is right. At least she's moved on from oversized sweaters and into some chambray.
I miss her ultra-tailored look and adorable animal prints, but this is a step up from daytime sweats. The Longchamp bag really helps make it seem like she's trying.
Apparently the answer to your feelings over being dumped by your psycho true love (you know, in addition to a lot of Taylor Swift and ice cream) is to go running to this guy.
Wren, what's wrong? Does being a cute doctor with an effing accent just fluster all the adults and you can only connect with a teenager? I don't understand. Explain it to me. Because you must be able to hook up with someone who isn't ten years younger. Or not.
I bet kissing Wren had her start to get some Kelly Clarkson feelings, a little "Since U Been Gone". Followed by a good steam in the most insane shower to get rid of those pesky feelings.
Oh Spence. You should have known he was trouble from the start.
But maybe trying to steam her like a lobster was the best thing for grieving process. Because I've got a feeling the next track on her Taylor Swift breakup playlist is going to be "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together"instead of "Back to December".
An angry Spencer is a scary Spencer. And a well dressed Spencer. Bring it, A. Spencer is ready for you and your creepy bouquets.
