At first, I thought that this episode of Pretty Little Liars was going to be mostly filler.
But then, some crazy stuff started happening! I’ll list them in order of importance/shock value:
I was unsure what the Queen of Hearts represented (seen in Mona’s hand at the very end of the episode as she sings “In The Eye Abides The Heart” — quite beautifully, I might add). I have a feeling that all of those card games she mentioned in her conversation with Caleb have some meaning, but I’m not sure what that is right now.
I have always felt bad for Spencer. Her family is nuts. And not only does nobody include her in any decisions or discussions, but it’s as if she’s invisible unless they need her for something. I get so frustrated every time I see her trying to have a conversation with her mother or her sister, who obviously confide in each other and not in Spencer. When did Melissa lose the baby, and how? And, more importantly, what did Garrett have to do with it? Is he actually the father?
The girls seemed pretty thrilled to catch Jenna in her lie. However, they did exchange that “look” indicating that they did find her story to be believable. Emily had been really drunk that night, and I think the girls realized that Jenna was trying to show a little humanity, the way that Hanna did when she pulled her out of the fire in Season 2.
One more thing I noticed tonight: this episode was completely free of texts from “A.” (Unless you count the “anonymous student” who told on Ella. But for the most part, the girls were left alone.)
