Discretion is the better part of valor for sure, but sometimes, Emily, you gotta speak up. Crazy girl drowns you, stalks you, jumps out of the backseat and kisses you? Say something! Get this party started! Get called an affirmative-action dyke in front of the lunchroom and entire faculty? Have some more whiskey! Say something! Crazy blind girl tryna make you join her My Brother Toby Fan Club? Girl! Say something!
Spencer tries to feed Toby some toast, but he's so twitchy about stealing Jenna's stuff that he can't even think about breakfast, or the breakfast date he was already supposed to have on top of the breakfast date they're now having that he's too distracted for. And considering Toby only goes up to about a three, energetically speaking, that's a lot of stress. I think I even saw him move, but it could have been a trick of the light. They bond for a second over psycho sisters (Melissa "once threatened to break my thumbs for using her hairbrush") and then, Bonding Time Complete, Spencer moves on to the interrogating of Toby immediately.
Question 1: Why did Alison think Toby was a peeper, leading her to blow up his sister-with-benefits?
Toby swears that he was never a peeper, that Ali in fact made this up quote "because she thought she had something on me... she didn't understand what was really going on, and she used it against me anyway," which I'm presuming means she knew that he was being sexually abused by his sister and assumed it was the other way around, because of how usually it is, but also: How does that answer the question?
"Why did she think you were a pervert?" Because she knew I wasn't is not the answer to that question. Although it's Toby, so we'll give him a pass and just cut to the exposition, since clearly he's the key to cracking this whole thing and thus is forced by the narrative to speak as cryptically as possible at all times. Anyway, iffy dialogue for awhile and we revisit how Spencer crazily and intensely thought he killed Alison, just like the rest of the town, but now she would prefer to hold his hand and think about the mysteries of the mystery and also making him into less of a freak.
