Paige and Em are on the way to the party when Paige has an anxiety attack and has to pull over. She starts flipping out saying how she has to pretend to be strong because that is what Emily likes but she hasn’t been able to function since Halloween because of everything that has happened. She always feels like something is going to happen to them and then apologizes for ruining her night. Em suggests they go for a walk to calm Paige down before heading home which is a grand idea considering she just had a nervous breakdown from being scared all the fucking time and then you hear a creepy noise but yea…walking in the woods at night sounds really safe and secure. They eventually end up back at the car to realize one of the tires is flat and upon inspection see that it has been slashed. Emily sees Toby in the distance and decides to pursue him in the woods because knives no longer scare her. Paige grabs a bar of some sort and joins in the pursuit except Em loses Toby and Paige persuades her to just head home. Later at home Paige applauds Em for not being scared but Em reveals that she is just angry and doesn’t feel that she should have to live this way. They kiss and go to bed.
Mona and Spence start their quiz off and at the end of Round 2 Spencer is up 3 points and feeling cocky as she looks over to see Mona who is clearly breaking down again. Spencer takes her moment of weakness as a way to pounce on her and starts her last question but fumbles. Mona wins the captain spot and Andrew tries to comfort Spencer by offering to have Mona thrown off the team by going to the faculty. Hanna walks in to calm Spencer off the ledge but before they leave she confronts Mona telling her that she knows she is still manipulating people and that she doesn’t want anything to do with her. Mona mumbles that she is sorry she feels that way as the girls walk off. Later Spencer tells Hanna she shouldn’t have cut Mona out so quickly when Hanna gets a text from A that it was a big mistake and that she isn’t the only one who can slice and dice. Hanna knows the texts aren’t from Lucas and that there are more people on the A team than they think that are far worse. Spencer says Mona can now take them out in the open without having to hide.
Aria and Meredith arrive back home and strike a truce while trying to decide if Byron really had something to do with Ali’s murder. Its funny how Aria is so quick to be Team Meredith meanwhile the bitch was fucking your dad and ruined your parent’s marriage and sent your brother off on a psycho tangent. #WhereIsMikeAnyway. Byron leaves his office and Mona sneaks in while Toby creeps around in the woods and clumsily hides the mask from Halloween under like 5 leaves near some train tracks and the episode ends. Why does Lucas have a bunk bed in his room and does this concern anyone else but me? Is Meredith playing Aria or is she really concerned about what Byron might be capable? When did Byron get so creepy…and WHERE IS MIKE?
