Part 2 of 3: The Cage Is Getting Rattled, Y'all
Mona finally has Spencer on the A-Team and is this close to meeting Red Coat in person. That’s right – the bitch don’t know who she is! All this time Mona’s been throwing some serious shade about the Liars not knowing what’s up and this week, she let it slip that’s she’s just a pawn, too. Also, I get that she’s “in diguise” or whatever, but even a disguise should fit, honey.
Spencer and Toby reunite at a darling little diner, with Spencer more hunched over than Quasimodo, and Toby looking amazing. The hunching was really getting to the proper lady in me, but that eyeliner Spencer had happening was hypnotic. Flaw free.
I had to include this shot because it’s like the notion of sex wrapped itself in a small t-shirt and slinked out of the bathroom. This scene was pretty steamy, y’all and I was gagging over Spencer’s straight hair. It looks incredible! She needs to save this femme fatale look for other cheap motels.
Oh yes. Granted, we don’t get full abdominal action, but we know it’s there. And that’s oddly comforting.
Back in Rosewood, Aria and Ezra meet up at school to break up again. I think this time it stuck because Aria got to have a dramatic staircase exit. Once more, Aria wears a studded piece, but with it focused on the shoulders and the pyramid studs having a matte finish, it doesn’t offend me as much. We do need to draw attention to the clownish chastity belt she’s passing off as a skirt. How many buckles, snaps and straps do you count?
You know, if Ezra wasn’t wearing this monkey print tie, I would have no sympathy for him. But how ‘effing cute is that!? And he’s wearing a plaid jacket with a solid Oxford and printed tie — RuPaul, I think he’s got it!
Spencer shows up to the swim meet looking pretty pensive. Almost like she’s stalking someone. Sidebar: if ever I need to tail someone, I will also wear a romper-style top with lace trim. Oh, and those boots with the sock tease? It’s so nice to see Spencer back on her game.
While skulking around the school, Spencer spots a mysterious figure in a red coat. Dramz! But then she realizes the other school’s colours are red. Oh noes! But then she follows the first mystery red coat into the Meeting Restroom and finds out that it’s...
Hanna? Yes, it was an elaborate plot by the Liars to confront Spencer about being on the A-Team. This shit is starting to border on Veronica Mars territory.
Emily gets a pass for showing up to the meeting in her tracksuit. Although, I have to wonder – shouldn’t you be swimming, girl?
Eventually, Spencer confesses her whole double-agent plan she and Toby have cooked up and the Liars head back to school because you know, it’s probably a nice distraction from all the murder and intrigue and secret identities. Hanna looks positively professional in this peach Elizabeth and James jacket; has a nice sheen to it. It may be her softest school look we’ve seen yet.
Emily is giving major face in her army print coat, but who could pay attention to the clothes when she’s in full blown Rosewood Blowout with that hair.
Spencer’s serving some academic daydreamer realness with this pose and that hat. I do so love a good Homburg hat in the wild. If not for those cut-outs on the sleeves, we’d be disappointed in Spencer’s look but I know you were all gasping once you saw them.
Wow – you wanna talk about soft looks at school? Aria’s simple sweater and necklace combo are downright plain! I’m a little shocked, but I enjoy the change of pace. Besides it’ll help her blend into the background when she’s hiding from...
...her ex-boyfriend/English teacher.
