Liars: "Is it, though?"
Emily: "I think it is PTSD and I am blocking it out because it's too horrible. You know, like Spencer in the pilot episode and how we never again mentioned that happening."
Emily goes off on a quasi-Anne-sounding explanation of how her repressed memory might be triggered by anything: Sights, sounds, smells.
Spencer: "So basically you saw a car, and it reminded you of how there are cars, and so you ran right over to let everybody know?"
Emily: "Essentially that is what I am saying. But I also got a text from somebody who knows that I don't remember anything. While I was standing there not remembering anything. So there's that, also."
Aria: "Is this It starting again?"
Yes, Aria, it is. Clearly it is. I can see you asking that if you had a hundred pizzas delivered to your house or a sex toy catalog or something, if there was like a grey area, but repressed memories and haunted cars and creepy texts from omnipotent ninja ghosts? Girlfriend, you are looking at It. You are soaking in It. There is not a thing it could be other than It. Cue the talking dolls and Tory Burches.
Although I guess she has no idea that everybody's getting secret calls and making secret friends, or that Spencer has -- creepiest of all -- taken over Mona's Lair as her own personal dungeon of crazy. So really this is just Emily being obnoxious, or drunk, which is a gray area of a different sort but one that would appeal to the Lipgloss Conversation part of the show that Aria loves the best.
And here I was hoping we'd spend an entire Act on Ella grinding Ezra into dust at dinner. That would've been the hotness.
And no, I can't believe I just said I feel cheated out of an Ezria scene, but there it is.
Hanna: "Okay, I maybe should have told you this before, but I've been visiting Mona in secret. Trust me when I say she's still drooling into her pudding."
Liars: "Hanna, sweetie. You remember she tried to kill you?"
Hanna: "Yes, that has nothing to do with this."
Spencer: "Okay, I also have a secret to tell you."
Spence takes the Liars to the Lost Woods and shows them a panoramic of the Lair at its zenith, pointing like augmented reality at where all of Mona's shithouse crazy paraphernalia was stored.
Spencer: "Like over here, it was all the hoodies that A would wear whenever it was time to skulk or have the superpower of a tiny girl with adrenalized hyperreality strength..."
