Previously: Mr. Fitz and Aria couldn't fight that feeling any longer and hooked up in a car. Emily got saddled with Toby as a lab partner all Twilight style, Hanna tried to have sex with Sean, but crashed his car and ended up with a new job a dentist office to pay off the repairs. Spencer stole her sister's Russian history paper and got nominated for the ridiculously named national Golden Orchid award. Aria warned Meredith to find another married man to have an affair with, and then Holly Marie Mom got a nice note from "A" that told her all about her cheating husband. Then "A" wasted some lipstick by writing a note on Spencer's mirror.
Aria shows the girls the note that "A" sent to her mother. They tell her that she's not to blame for this, since her father was the one that asked her to keep it a secret. Aria says that Alison told her she should spill the beans right after it happened. The girls are all sitting around Spencer's kitchen drinking coffee and dressed in what I can only presume are their versions of pajamas, which are carefully arranged off the shoulder shirts that have lemon yellow teddy bears on them, tank tops and knee high socks. Though of course Aria is wearing mismatched black and red printed pants and a green recycling long sleeved half-shirt (yes, that seems like an idiotic article of clothing to me too) with a turquoise tank top underneath it to cover her stomach. Because matching is totally overrated.
Anyway, the girls seem shocked that Alison knew about this, but Hanna is more horrified that the girl hooking up with Aria's dad is named Meredith. She thinks it sounds like an ugly girl name, like someone would have mousy hair and big pores. Well, the mousy hair is right, given what I've learned from Grey's Anatomy. Hanna thinks that if you're going to cheat you should do it with someone who deep conditions her hair. Word to the wise, men out there, word to the wise. Hanna says that she's sorry for making light of things, but laughing (and occasionally crying) is what got her through her dad's departure. Aria doesn't think that her dad will leave, since the affair was over a year ago, but their silence and avoiding eyes makes her realize that it is a possibility.
Spencer changes the subject by telling them she's grateful that they stayed after the break-in, what with her family still in New York until later that afternoon. So, did they all go home and get pajamas? Because I find it hard to believe that Spencer has anything in her closet that remotely looks like the nightmare that Aria's wearing. They decide that they need to clean the mirror, and they decide to go together, because no one wants to be left alone, even with the doors locked. As they head upstairs, Hanna gets a message on her phone. They stupidly decided to unblock their phones to give their stalker even easier access to them. The message says, "Ever wonder what's going on when your back is turned? -- A" and it has an attachment. The attachment is a video of them when they all first saw the message on the mirror. It looks like it was shot from inside Spencer's closet. The girls go upstairs and open the closet, causing stuff to comically fall down on them. Among the items is a tube of lipstick, the exact same shade as the one that is still on the mirror. To prove this, Aria takes the lipstick, puts it on her hand and holds it to the mirror. I think we'd have figured it out without that overly obvious visual, thanks.
