Hanna asks Emily if the car outside is hers. It is! She won the raffle after she got her head wound. Sorta evens out. And makes me hate the writing on it slightly less than when I see it for sporting events or graduations. Emily addresses the elephant in the room and asks Hanna why she thought Emily wanted to take Maya to the dance. To her credit, Hanna doesn't lie and just says that she got a picture of them making out from "A." Hanna wants to know why she'd take a hot lesbian pic with Maya and then take weird Toby to the dance. Nia's probably downstairs, still wondering what happened to Ben. Emily says that she thinks she knows what she wants, and that's Maya, but she's afraid of being judged by the world. Yeah, high school sucks. Hanna says that she wouldn't have to pretend that she's happy with Toby. Emily worries she might change her mind, and the show carefully avoids using the word lesbian here, and Hanna insists that it isn't a contract written in stone, and that no one cares who Emily dates. Emily thinks that her parents might care. Honestly, Em? I get that your dad is in the military, but there's no Don't Ask, Don't Tell anymore, and your mom clearly has no idea who you are dating. No need to be perfect. And, frankly, Maya's way hotter than either Ben or Toby. Though I still think it is more than a little bit convenient that she moved into town and insinuated herself right into Emily's life so easily. Slightly suspicious, but not a rapist and not a guy who sleeps with his sister... so definitely an upgrade.
At the country club, Spencer looks for Alex, who's in the kitchen. The laundry service was apparently pilfering funds, so they're short-staffed, and now, in addition to working on the court, he's also a sous chef. Who knew that Chin Dimple the Second was a regular Jack-of-all-trades? Spencer asks him if he can take a break. What part of "understaffed" does she not get? I seriously thought she was smart. Spencer wants to explain about the night before, and Alex says that her sister took care of that. She insists that Melissa lied, but a waitress type says that Spencer can't be in the kitchen, since it is off-limits to members. Oh, just like Dirty Dancing. Is she going to carry a watermelon? Alex ignores her, and snippy waitress says that Spencer is violating health codes. Spencer says she won't touch the tartar sauce, and earns a chuckle from Alex. Spencer begs for another chance, the next night. He agrees, on the condition that she let him plan the entire night. For a control freak like Spencer, this is a big deal. She thinks it sounds dangerous, but she caves when he smiles.
