Spencer’s starting to catch on to Ezra’s shenAnigAns — but will anyone believe the insane accusations of a newly minted pill popper?
I’m not going to lie, it’s been a little frustrating watching the girls run around like chickens with their heads cut off, totally unaware that Ezra (Ian Harding) is the mastermind behind all of their suffering; and that’s why I loved the Jan. 28 episode of Pretty Little Liars, as Spencer (Troian Bellisario) started to finally connect the dots!
Not only did Spencer figure out that Ezra and Alison (Sasha Pieterse) used to hook up — words can’t describe how awkward it was watching them kiss this week — but thanks to several key clues in Ali’s journal, she also discovered Ezra’s beer of choice: Board Shorts! Seriously, I don’t think I’ve let out an audible gasp like that since we first discovered Ezra’s “A” connection. This isn’t just big, people; this is HUGE!
Unfortunately, when Spencer wasn’t cracking the Ezra mystery, she was developing a nasty little caffeine pill problem, courtesy of Andrew (Brandon W. Jones). And while I wasn’t at all unhappy to see everyone’s favorite hot nerd back on the show, I can’t help but worry about Spencer’s future. She may be gathering the evidence, but will anyone believe her when they see what she’s on?
Hanna’s Dental Damage
Moving on to Hanna (Ashley Benson) for a minute… What is she thinking?! She spent the episode making nice with Detective Holbrook (Sean Faris), which I normally wouldn’t discourage right off the bat — come on, just look at him! — but we all know that law enforcement officials on this show are not to be trusted.
Honestly, if I wasn’t so positive of Ezra’s wicked ways, I’d suspect Detective Holbrook of drugging Hanna at the dentist and stealing Ali’s dental records. (Come to think of it, could they be working… together?)
One Of Us! One Of Us!
And then there’s Aria (Lucy Hale), who may or may not be heading straight into a pretty little cult. After learning that Mike (Cody Christian) and Mona (Janel Parrish) have been spending too much time together — seriously, any time is too much time — she did some digging into the school group they’ve both been attending.
It turns out it’s headed by a creepy-yet-dashing guidance counselor named Jesse (Wes Ramsey), and he’s interested in speaking with Aria further. Personally, I’d prefer he speak with Aria’s mom (Holly Marie Combs), so we can have ourselves a full-on Charmed reunion!
