What Becomes of the Broken Hearted- Yet another "better late than never" post from us. After A sends Spencer a text threatening to take out one of the other Liars if Spencer tells them about Toby, Spencer clams up even harder. It must have looked to A like Spencer was getting ready to crack. She should have told them sooner. Then, Spencer gets kicked off the Academic Decathlon Team, with Andrew being the swing vote and Mona being the instigator.
Spencer challenges Andrew to a competition that resembled "strip poker." Spencer is owning, and Andrew is almost naked when Emily bursts into Spencer's house and shuts the whole thing down. Rats. We actually didn't notice that Andrew was that hot until all his clothes were off. We must have been distracted looking for clues...or we are just so used to hotness on this show that it doesn't even stand out anymore. It's like, "Oh, new teenage character? Obviously hot, like everyone else."
Mona sends Dr. Wren to check on Spencer, telling him that she sees signs of early insanity in Spencer. Spencer has always been like this, people. We don't know WHY Mona did this. Maybe to set up Spencer's downfall and admittance to the asylum? We thank her though, because she did everyone a favor. We've been wanting Wren to come around for a while. It's kind of annoying that he's only around when Spencer is at her craziest or drunkest, but it's also hot and exciting too.
Spencer takes Wren to the Decathlon set up and thanks Mona for sending him over. After some posturing, Spencer suddenly yells "DIE" and starts throttling Mona. No, we are not making that up, and if you've seen the episode too, you know that this marvelous thing actually happened. That was seriously the greatest moment in the world. Sadly, bystanders pull Spencer off Mona. We guess Spencer is never getting back on that Decathlon team, which should be fine. Spencer is too busy living a life worthy of a stellar college application essay anyway. Wren lies to Melissa for Spencer as he drives her home, and she gives him a nice smile. Sadly, they don't bone...yet.
Even though Fish Face is gone, Aria STILL spends most of the episode away from the A action dealing with him, via his brother. CeCe calls Aria in for a photography job, and Aria takes Wesley with her. Turns out, he's not allowed to stay at Fitz's apartment, and he needs a place to stay. Aria offers her home couch. At the photgraphy shoot, CeCe leaves to give them time alone together. Tee hee hee, CeCe, you saucy girl. At least we assume that's the extent of her agenda. We share this agenda.
Aria and Wesley spill something on a disgusting rug and spend most of the time trying to clean it up instead of doing anything romantic. The rug saga goes on for a long time, and everyone is bored. Aria takes Wesley home, finally, and he spouts poetry. Because total freaking gayness turns Aria on, they share a quick kiss before Aria freaks out, says, "We can't do this," and leaves the room. Um, you totally can do this. Wesley is a) hotter and b) your age.
Hanna's storyline was way more interesting than Aria's, even though she too stayed away from the main mystery this week in favor of a boy. Hanna gets Caleb and Jamie, who is his father (obviously), together at a coffee shop, where they make up. Then, Hanna gets Jamie a job with Pastor Ted. Unfortunately and heartbreakingly for everyone involved, Hanna ends the episode knowing that Jamie stole from the church offering box.
Jamie is still a con man, trying to screw someone over. We've been down this road with TV Con Dads, and it was the saddest thing. Bonus points if you can guess the show we're talking about. It's a relatively recent one. We feel so bad for Caleb. Wouldn't it be great if Hanna could shut it down without Caleb knowing anything? If anyone can pull it off, it's Hanna.
Emily had most of the A action this week. Turns out Jason is only talking to Mona to get information about what happened to Ali. Jason comes home to find, like, 200 bottles of...was it beer? rum?...on his porch. It looks like someone, probably A, is harassing him too. Emily teams up with Jason to look for a Cape May picture and they find it. This all leads to Jason boarding an elevator that falls, landing him in the hospital. Someone steals the picture.
The Liars all go to the hospital, but Jason has disappeared. The final scene shows two As plotting (re-committing?) to take down Spencer. Spencer's doings and where the show is taking her is the reason this episode got such a high grade, but we didn't dislike any of the other storylines this week either. This was a memorable, good episode.
