Hanna’s over at Spencer’s house for a pow-wow on God knows what, telling Spencer about helping out at the church. Aria, who was on the phone with Em, tells them that Paige is invited and Laurel’s taking photos and Emily overheard Laurel talking about Lucas (maybe) and why is Garrett being released the same night as Jenna’s party? Spencer wonders what Jenna’s ulterior motive for the party is.
At the rummage sale, Hanna’s having a sucky time, but Ashley’s found herself a nice silver fox. Daddy likes! Ted is his name and he is the volunteer coordinator. They flirt a little bit. Go for it, Ash!
Aria is talking to Spencer about going to the party and getting the skinny on Lucas. Oh, boo, she’s at Ezra’s apartment. Ezra wants to go to dinner in New Hope but Aria wants to go somewhere in town and then stop by Jenna’s party for some forgiveness. And cake. And then Ezra breaks out a present for Aria. Unless it’s an “I’m sorry for my inappropriate behavior and I’m breaking up with you” card, then I’m not interested. Turns out it’s an old-timey camera, like one of those box ones you have to look down into. Ooh, a camera! I’m detecting a theme for this episode!
And that theme is “I HATE EZRA.”
Spencer is at the hospital, following Garrett, and telling Emily on the phone what’s going down, which is only that Garrett is buying some crappy flowers.
Meanwhile, Emily’s preparing for a visit from Hanna.
Garrett’s writing a note for the flowers, which Spencer thinks is suspicious since Garrett’s mom is in a coma and can’t read. What if she wakes up, Spencer? God. Spencer runs into Det. Wilden and they trade barbs.
What the hell, Jenna went f**king BALLS OUT on her party. It’s like an Alice in Woderland theme or something, but what the hell? In my day, we went over to a friend’s house and split a bottle of Boone’s Farm that someone stole from their parents and called it a day. Geez. Paige shows up, looking ever so cute. It’s hard for me to believe she once tried to drown Emily. And yet, even with vaguely attempted murder, she’s still 1,000% better than Maya ever was. Nate shows up and Emily gets a little weird.
Back at the rummage sale, Hanna’s sorting clothes when she finds a black hoodie, which is suspicious since only one person in this one specific town in Pennsylvania wears and/or has worn a black hoodie. Hanna steals it, because, hey, it’s been a while since she’s done that. Unfortunately, Ted sees her do this, so Hanna’s all, I WAS TOTALLY GOING TO BUY THAT SO HERE’S TWENTY BUCKS!!! She then calls Spencer and it turns out that the hoodie is actually Emily’s gray jacket from “that night” when they supposedly burned all their clothes. My bad. She leaves a message for Spencer asking her why the jacket still exists.
Back at Jenna’s Big Seein’ Eyes Party, Nate tells Em that he had a last minute invite from Jenna, but he’s not much for parties so he might split. Nate mentions that he enjoyed talking with Jenna and wants to know more about her (boob-ily speaking, of course) and Em’s all, Nah, you don’t, dude. And then Paige sees this and pours some of that skanky old liquor from Em’s flask into her drink. Ezra and Aria show up at the party, which causes everyone else to immediately leave. I wish . . . Aria sees Laurel — she took a photography class with her, of course — so she goes to say hi. Aria mentions that Ezra bought her that old camera and Laurel’s all, Guuuurrl, that shit is expensive, so he must be rich or in love with you or I don’t care, just leave and take your inappropriate boyfriend with you. Laurel mentions that she’s without an assistant, so Aria says she’d love to do it and asks if the old assistant is still there. He’s not, but his bag still is, Laurel mentions. How convenient.
