We pick up right where the last episode left of with Spender, Hanna, and Aria frantically trying to find Emily who is off with scary Toby. They call her, but then find her phone left on the floor in the hallway. But don't they look great?
Their shoes, though, scream 2010. Platforms, ugh.
It is kind of scary when they walk into the lab and see a ton of broken glass and blood. That's definitely not a scene you walk in on and think "Oh okay, everything fine here!" We flash to Toby driving a bleeding Emily to the hospital. Toby just drops her off and flees, which raises everyone's suspicions.
The next day, Emily is home and recovering as Mrs. Fields holds off the cops outside. They want to ask her more questions, but Em's mom ever so politely insists that her daughter told them everything the night before.Except, Mrs. Fields does find out that it was Toby and not Ben who was her daughter's date. Oops! She tells the officer "My daughter doesn't lie" and he replies, "Everybody lies."
We also find out Emily won the car from the Homecoming raffle. I'm a little jealous, all I won at my own high school dance was a microwave. (That I exchanged for a TV!)
- Did A make this happen? (Emily's car, not my microwave.)
Aria and Spencer are there to fill in Emily on what she missed the night before when they read Toby's file Toby and Jenna were "involved" and Ali threatened to expose Toby.
- Emily wonder why Toby didn't kill her the night before then. Why did he save her? Could he have really killed Ali?
Hanna shows up and I love how she just saunters past the cops like NBD. I also love when she whips the Toby folder out from under her shirt. She couldn't return it because cops are also at the medical building trying to find it! Of course, Aria has the brilliant idea to hide it in her locker until they decide what to do.
After the other girls leave, Emily asks Hanna why she thought she wanted to go to Homecoming with Maya. Thank goodness Hanna comes clean! She straight up tells her that A sent her the photo of Emily and Maya kissing and she is so sweet about giving Em advice.
Over at the country club, Spencer finds Alex to apologize about the dance and to ask for a makeup date. Alex agrees to hang out the next night as long as he can plan the entire evening, which totally makes type A (not that A) Spencer nervous.
- Uptight girl who freaks that Spencer is in the kitchen could totally be A. What a drag!
Back at Emily's she's having a dream about a dog...no wait, it's Jenna. Jenna and her seeing eye dog? She's brought cookies over and very pointedly asks Pam Fields if there's milk in the house. "You do have milk, don't you?" Only Jenna could make milk creepy. She pushes Emily to tell her anything she knows about Toby's whereabouts and says that she is very worried about him.
- Emily lets it slip that they know what's in the file.
At Rosewood High, Hanna meets Lucas there to take makeup Homecoming King and Queen photos. Man, Lucas LOVES Hanna.
I took this screenshot of Aria's room because I really love it. I like how dark it is and it reminds me of a loft. What I don't like is her awkward conversation with her dad about his relationship with her mom.
- Blackboard says, "Is Emma Bovary responsible for her own downfall or is she a victim..."
Spencer heads the the club because Alex blew off their date because he had to work, but since the club is closed, she didn't believe him. He wasn't lying, though, and is indeed there preparing for a big breakfast for the next day. She ends up staying to help and even wears a hairnet, which must really show she cares. I like Alex.
- Lucas mentions Photoshop about 500 times. Does he maybe Photoshop things later??
- Also, is the yellow legal pad a clue? It seemed to be very on purposefully shown. I can't remember if A leaves a note on a yellow legal pad ever. Can you?
Elsewhere, Aria yells at Sean for sending her flowers since Hanna is her bff and has loved Sean 4 eva. Their conversation gets interrupted because Aria's brother Mike gets in a fight down the hall. I love when Aria says, "Let him go!" to Sean and then "Mike!" like he was supposed to just hang around and chat.
At the club, Spencer goes looking for some supply or something and finds the awful collection of club member pictures with mean things written on them. Alex says he's never seen her picture there. He swears it. (Did A add it?)
In Arialand, Byron and Ella, who are at the school because of Mike's fight, fight about how they're going to deal with things. Byron points out that Aria's been skipping classes and Ella's all "Are you calling me a bad mother?!" Yikes! Later on, because Byron refuses to move out, Ella does.
Maybe if she were a good mother, she would know her daughter is in love with her teacher...hmmm. Because, yeah, Aria is over at Fitz's and has used the key under the welcome mat to let herself in because she is worried about it.
- A key under the mat. Really?
On her way home, Emily passes by Toby's house and sees his motorcycle on the back of a tow truck, totally wrecked and sees Jenna crying. The girls meet up at Arias and wonder if Toby is dead and then get an A text.
- Aria is clearly not with them so she could be getting the papers, but so could a million other people.
