Aria tries to change the subject by saying that the conversation is giving her hives, but it is just a mosquito bite. Did she forget about mosquitoes during her time in Iceland? They wonder if Spencer has gotten any more text messages, but before she can really answer the question, they hear the sounds of some twigs breaking. They don't know what it is, but they all get text messages. "Heads up, BFFs. It's open season on liars and I'm hunting... - A" And I know I've mentioned before how weird these text messages look on the screen, but really, it is starting to bother me. It's not the cute bubble threads that iPhones or droids have, but blood red comic strip style talk bubbles coming out of a little outline of a person. Can we not just use actual text looking messages? Why this ugly, stylized and unrealistic looking thing? It's kind of like when I watch a show, and they're supposed to be playing like Xbox, and there are like old school, 8-bit Mario Bros. sounding noises coming out of the TV. It's really jarring and takes me out of the moment. So instead of the ominous thoughts I should be having about "A" threatening to shoot them down like wild animals in the woods, I'm now wondering why "A" needs to send her messages so they look like they've come from a demonic Ziggy.
Hanna walks into her kitchen (presumably the next morning, time is so confusing on this show) and is greeted by Det. Wilden who is wearing nothing but a towel. Thank you, show. I needed that. Anyway, Hanna looks less than pleased with his reappearance, but he can't be bothered to deal with her disdainful looks as he's pondering the magic of spreadable butter. It is quite the novel concept, but frankly, he can sit and ponder anything his little heart desires if all he wants to wear is that low-slung white towel. Melrose Mom comes in and shuffles him off to get dressed. Damn her. Hanna wants to know if Wilden is living there and why she has to repeatedly sleep with him over one pair of last season's stolen sunglasses. Basically, Melrose Mom says that she needs to keep having sex with the hot detective until the charges are officially dropped. She doesn't mention how the sex is, though, and given his physique in the towel, it isn't exactly like she has to let Chief Wiggum rub all over her. Things could be worse.
Hanna just doesn't want him to be her new daddy and have to buy him Father's Day cards. But Melrose Mom gets all pissy and says that she's the one that deserves a card. Does Hallmark sell a card for oversexed single moms who pimp themselves out in order to protect their teenage daughter's reputations? Or is that more of a niche market? The camera zooms away as Hanna stomps off, and we see that Det. Wilden didn't go to get dressed and is still standing in the hallway wearing naught but a towel listening in on this whole mother-daughter exchange. Thanks, editors, not for clueing us into Wilden's scheme, but for finding a way to show him shirtless again.
