Of course Jason isn’t going to admit to breaking into your house and taking pictures of you while you’re sleeping. One, that’s creepy. And two, you’re not on a show called “Pretty Little Truth-Tellers.”
Last night on “Liars,” Emily and Spencer tell Aria about Jason’s creepy shrine to her in his darkroom/shed. And yet, she doesn’t seem too concerned.
When she confronts Jason about the photos, consequently outing her friends as the people who broke in (oops), he tells her the pictures actually belonged to Ali. Once again, Aria fails to have a normal reaction to this information.
Why does she find it sweet that her dead friend’s shady brother was planning to frame one of the photos for her? Also, why does she want a framed photo of herself?
At lunch, Emily finds that her Alpha-bits cereal has been tampered with. Well, either that or Post recently created a letter A-only edition. A note was enclosed: “The weak link is the easiest to break. Snapping yet?”
Noticing that Em is under an insane amount of stress, Hanna’s mom offers her a gift certificate for a massage. A good idea in theory - but I’ll get back to that.
Spencer and Toby notice Ian’s old yearbooks while they’re boxing up his things. Turns out Ian, Jason and Garrett were members of the N.A.T. Club – N.A.T. being short for a Latin phrase meaning “We see all.” Thank you, Bing product placement.
When Aria visits Fitz at Hollis, his ex-fiance Jackie heads over to give the new girl some condescending advice. I would stick up for Aria, but after seeing how naïve she was with the whole Jason situation, she kind of deserved a little kick in the rear.
Meanwhile, Hanna decides to be a good sport about her dad’s wedding and make nice with her soon-to-be stepsister. However, Mona causes some issues when she insists the girls go horseback riding with stepsister Kate and her country club posse. Hanna voices her frustration to Mona, failing to notice that the PA system is on. Kate and her pretentious friends hear Hanna’s entire rant.
Now it looks like A will be the least of Hanna’s problems. When Kate calls her house later than night, she says, “Training a horse is an art. You have to … take all the fight out of it until it’s broken. That’s how you’re going to feel when I’m through with you. Welcome to the family, sis.”
Across town, Emily goes for her massage. As soon as the masseuse says she’s leaving the room, you can tell something is about to go down. Someone dressed in black – probably A - comes in and rubs Em down for a bit. If only she had looked up!
Emily attempts to contact Dr. Sullivan afterward, but she’s caught off guard by a text from A: “See how easy it is for me to get my hands around you neck?”
When Spencer spots Aria cozying up to Jason, she begs Fitz to talk some sense into his secret girlfriend. Moments later, Fitz finds Aria outside Jason’s house. (She waited by the road while he grabbed the box he found under his sister’s floorboards – shady!)
Fitz and Aria decide it’s time to tell her parents about their relationship. Though something tells me they won’t have to now that Jason knows. And not that it matters. Aria’s mom thinks Fitz is involved with Spencer. She says so, before adding that she’d feel disappointed and betrayed by her fellow educator if she found out the rumors were true.
Looks like Aria and Fitz might be staying in the closet a bit longer.
After accosting Spencer in her own home, Jenna realizes the girls know more than they should.
Per Jenna’s request, Garrett meets Jason at his house to make sure they’re “still cool.” (Dying to know what he’s referring to!)
The episode ends as Dr. Sullivan meets her new patient. We can’t see who it is, or if he or she is wearing black gloves, but it’s probably safe to assume it’s A.
Something else to think about: Could Hanna's evil stepsister have something to do with the horseshoe from a few episodes back? She does have ties to a nearby stable. Just sayin'.
What did you think about last night's episode?
