It’s senior year and Spencer’s slowing down, she no longer has time to be Velma, she’s missed out on early admissions to U-Penn and she got a B on her assignments, a B!! She’s decided to spend the rest of the school year as Daphne and get in to college (Aria pokes hole in that logic), although when she does find out Cece Drake went to U-Penn too it gives her pause. But Cece knows someone at the U-Penn admissions office (Code for “A” knows someone clearly) who’ll be at a party later that night, and Spencer wastes no time forcing Cece’s hand (Spencer girl, you’ve been played. Sigh).
The party is at Noel Kahn’s cabin, the entry stamp is the same as the one on Holden’s arm (and the arm of the mystery person from Em’s memory) and the possibility of answers about Maya’s connection to them is another reason to stay.
The greatest game ever is played.
Hanna and Caleb make sad eyes at each other in the hallway and then walk away quickly before the subtext in their small talk becomes to heavy. Hanna is reminded she’s walking in dangerous territory almost immediately as “A” texts her to show up at Apple Rose Grille or Caleb gets hurt. Turns out Caleb’s smartened up and isn’t going to let the Liars deal with the new “A” alone (Wow the guys really are stepping up this season aren’t they?).
Aria gets to meet Ezra’s brother, Wes who in an effort to put into perspective his mother’s offer, let’s it slip out that Ezra got a girl pregnant in high-school and their mother “took care of it”. Man, these Ezaria storylines may have worked in any other teenage show, but where everyone else is intimately connected with the “A” storyline, their non-involvement is just a drag.
Hanna gives Emily the login to Maya’s website.
She has Paige now to make her laugh with stories of naked old people and comfort her by understanding her need to mourn for the loss of a loved one.
“A” is now either renting an apartment from a cat lady or an actual cat. I’m not too sure.
