Spencer goes to elaborate lengths to meet up with Mary Drake and encounters Wren. After learning something surprising about Lucas, Hanna sets out to prove her friend is innocent and uncovers even more troubling info. And another person is brought in on the secret of A.D.’s game.
I really enjoyed this episode. We learn some interesting and shocking things. People are betraying others, like usual and the episode is very eventful. Troian also directed it, and she did a great job. It seemed like any other normal episode, but she put in her own special touches. I enjoyed the overall plot and I LOVED one specific scene. A great episode overall.
Hmmm, Aria being a spy, this different, but I totally expected something like this from her before, so I wasn’t surprised that she did it. I agree with the things she said about Nicole to Ezra, otherwise he may have drifted away slowly. But that weird video chat face is so creepy and the voice is even creepier. I cringed every time it came on.
It’s official, I’ve given up on Furey. I get that it’s his job and all, but he’s betraying Spencer and her respect. Even if he can’t do anything about it, he didn’t have to approach it that way, he could’ve just asked why, instead of acting as if the Liars killed Dunhill in cold-blood. He doesn’t know the whole story. And him following Spencer was a bit too much. He should’ve shown Spencer that she could trust him, and instead he did completely the opposite.
I’m SO excited about Emison now. I never used to SHIP them, but now I do. Ali’s speech was so heartwarming and I now understand why everyone likes them together. I also want to know who the father of their baby is, I don’t have a single theory (yet). And how Paige left the two of them was so sweet. If that was her final appearance, then I’d be complete satisfied.
So Lucas and Charles know each other. They were obviously close, because they drew a comic book together. I don’t think he’s A.D., it would be too obvious (but you never know), he must have some kind of explanation. It’s weird how almost everything in Rosewood seems to somehow come back to Charles.
The last thing I want to mention is how Hanna finally tells Mona about the game. It was about time. I always thought she could help somehow. I enjoyed how Mona marveled about the mechanics of the boardgame, like a true mastermind. I don’t think she’d be A.D. as it’d be disappointing. Mona is a big advantage to the Liars, as she’d to be able to help win the game, and I’m glad Hanna brought her, because Mona can understand it better.
I overall really enjoyed the episode. Was low on action but full of secrets being revealed and info to help us theorize. Troian did a great job, and I am very keen to see next week’s episode!
