'Pretty Little Liars' Ep. 3.2 Recap - Emily and Paige's PG-Rated Sleepover
Despite staying under the radar in the Season 3 winter premiere, Paige is back, but much less collected than last we saw her. She is obviously still reeling from Halloween, and tells Emily that her parents have insisted she come straight home from school. Emily hopes to reassure Paige by bringing up a party in the woods some girls from the swim team are throwing. Something tells me a party in the woods wonâ€™t be the most calming of activities. Also, what parents want their kids on lockdown during the day, but are totally cool with sending them off to a nighttime party in the woods?
Aria and her mom are chatting in an empty classroom (one of many at Rosewood High) about Ali and the night she disappeared. Ariaâ€™s mom recounts that they had come home from a party with a bottle of wine she snuck home in her purse, which she intended to save. Byron, ever the party animal, opened the bottle, getting his wife good and liquored up before she stumbled off to bed. Meanwhile, Meredith walks by the classroom and looks very suspiciously at mother and daughter having a conversation.
Spencer has been stressing over who will be named the captain of the academic decathlon team, but is confidently unopposed, after a faulty bicycle nut sent her opponent, Brad, to the hospital. Sounds like the work of the A Team, perhaps! Also, looking at these outfits, â€śacademic decathlonâ€ť at Rosewood High is code for â€śhipster cotillion.â€ť
The AD team has one more member to announce, however, and (surprise, surprise) itâ€™s Mona, who is not only actually kind of brilliant, but has been campaigning for the captainâ€™s position herself. The club puts it to a vote, resulting in a tie, which calls for a Spencer/Mona nerd off! Spencer wishes Mona â€śgood luckâ€ť in a voice that is eerily similar to the villain from Taken.
Fellow teammate Andrew approaches Spencer after the vote, removing his hipster specs to reveal (gasp!) heâ€™s handsome! Spencer, however, is not fazed by this Clark Kent level of deception, even when he tells her to â€śput on your Hastings face and spank her like I know you can.â€ť Calm down there, Clark. Spencer also receives an encouraging note from A, who tells her to â€śquit while youâ€™re ahead, bitch.â€ť
