By this time she's behind the wheel, and revving the engine to make him get out of the way, but in a pathetic attempt to control the situation male-privilege style, still screaming about how he's going to kill Hanna, he reaches for his weapon. And so it is that Ashley Marin hits the gas, sending Darren high into the sky with a glorious thump. She does not turn back and she does not waver: At the end of this long road, there is a cabinet. And in that cabinet is the booze. And in that booze, she will find... oblivion.
Emily: "CeCe Drake, why are you putting all your stuff in that suitcase? Why are you rushing around so, CeCe Drake?"
CeCe Drake: "I am getting the hell on up outta here. I got abducted by a cop this morning, dude. It was like Brokedown Palace, I don't have time for that shit. And by the way, thanks for telling everybody on earth about my connection to the..."
Emily: "CeCe Drake, my point exactly. Why didn't you tell us about how you were there in that picture that Jason found and subsequently lost immediately and then disappeared?"
CeCe Drake: "Emily, come on. I lie about everything. You're asking the wrong questions. I got scared, because I felt like my theory that Wilden knocked Ali up and killed her was being proven true. Even for Wilden, he's acting sketchy."
Emily: "So why not turn him in? A common-sense thing most people would do, but a thing also that my friends and I never do."
CeCe Drake: "To what, to one of his buddies on the force? I'm so sure Rosewood PD has an Internal Affairs department. They barely have an External Affairs department from what I can tell..."
Emily: "Apropos of nothing, did you know Jason DiLaurentis spotted you in Ali's yard one time?"
CeCe Drake: "Son of a bitch. When would that be?"
Emily: "I will give you three guesses."
CeCe Drake: "Ali called me, freaking out because the entire NAT Club cohort was at her house, beating on her door like zombies and runnin' around the yard all crazy, demanding these various creepy videos she had."
Emily: "Whom would you say was most emphatic, in your recollection, about these videos?"
CeCe Drake: "Oh, by far the Black Swan. Melissa begged me to intervene, and I talked Ali to going to get the tapes, and then she vanished."
Emily: "For my third and final non sequitur pivot, who took the picture of you three blond perverts on that boat?"
CeCe Drake: "As random as that question is, also Melissa. Everything is Melissa this episode. She hasn't been the flavor of the week since like, before the whole Toby thing, so it was probably about time."
