Aria: "Did Mona mean she's not safe? Or that we're not?"
Um, I think we can all agree that one's moot, dear heart. You are most assuredly not safe. And Mona's safety is secondary to the problem of obviously figure out the password now. Your thoughts? Tell Hanna "I'm Sorry," that was my first thought. Or something doll-related. I do very much love getting confirmation, though, on the fact that Maya was learning more about the A-Team, because they haven't hit that note in a while. Oh, Maya. You are missed, sort of.
The camera moves all through the whole area, the weird shapes and catty-corner giant cribs and strange lights and off shadows and everything wrong. And then baby cribs, like in NICU, including a couple that maybe have twins in them. And then A picks up one of the dolls, twists the head off -- just like Aria said -- and produces an old timey tape recorder so she can listen to the Liars talking to weird old Mona.
No one to save Ali from evil. No one to save Ali from evil. No one to save Ali from evil.
OMG their Ezria love has overcome so many problems related to how they are completely inappropriate for one another, and then here comes another one, in the form of Ezra's mother. Who, by the look of things, is not having Aria's mess. As expected, somebody -- Spencer, turns out -- is going to get Caleb to do the easy work of hacking the Maya website. And Emily is gonna go a few more rounds with Paige and with That Night and her fault memory. Oooh!
Where do you think she went? Besides on a joyride with a blind girl and into the past and also a graveyard? I am going to say Brookhaven or Lost Woods, but only because that's what I always say. Maybe she went to a rave with Noel, or got together with Cece Drake and cooked up a virtual reality simulacrum of some sort.
All that is necessary to know is that it's called "The Kahn Game," and there's a party at Noel Kahn's house, and even just thinking about those words is more magical than this wonderful episode was.
