Ali continues to work the emotionally manipulative vibe, and it's driving Hanna to drink like a bad After School Special. Not everyone in Rosewood is buying Ali's kidnapping story, and Drunk Hanna is calling Ali on her shit. Aria volunteers at Radley, and finds The Girl in the Yard's roommate and sketchbook pretty damn fast. Of course, Eddie is rightfully suspicious that she's there just to volunteer. He's also not blind, and no doubt recognizes Aria from when she visited Spencer at Radley, so he gives Ezra a call. Then, something something Toby's mom? Don't know, still don't care. Spencer helps Ezra move the equipment he used to spy on her and her friends. She was almost pissed about it, until she realized she could borrow some gear to set up a MelissaCam outside of her house. Good thing, since MelissaCam caught Ali sneaking around Spencer's yard like somone who wasn't just strangled in her own living room. And DLD is showing up all over the place playing dumb, like she doesn't know full well what the score is with these girls. She better not be a random A like Shana.
Only in Rosewood Moment
So many of these this week. Only in Rosewood can Aria get in and out of a psychiatric hospital at her own leisure, like there's no security or locks. Only here can a teen drink vodka at the dinner table and no one notices. And only here is there a test that lets you get out of high school forever.
Random Return of Minor Character
Emily's mom returns from wherever she's been with advice that maybe it's not Emily's job to save Ali. You know, the kind of momtalk that would have been helpful four seasons ago, before the giant body count and PTSD.
Not an amazing week. I think Drunk Hanna's rocker chick is my favourite this week, mostly because of that leather jacket.
Best "A" msg
"New York, New York is a hell of a town. Ali's keeping secrets, maybe that's because of Hanna's big mouth." Not A's best work to date, but there you have it.
Current A Team Suspect
Someone who loves clowns and reading mail and crashing engagement parties? Come on I.Marlene, I need more clues.
Check in on Friday for Steph's full recap.
