'Pretty Little Liars' Ep. 3.2 Recap - Emily and Paige's PG-Rated Sleepover
Ariaâ€™s mom and Meredith have a very awkward conversation, as Meredith assumes that Ellaâ€™s classroom chat with Aria earlier had to do with Meredithâ€™s burnt arm. Noted: fires in Rosewood can only attack one body part at a time; thankfully, Meredith must have covered her eyes with her arm.
The girls converge in Ariaâ€™s room to discuss her momâ€™s account of the night Ali disappeared. They find, however, that the page in Aliâ€™s journal referencing that night was stolen from Ariaâ€™s left boot, where she hid it.
Byron is back to being creepy dad, and interrupts the girls as they throw her boots around looking for the missing pages. They make some half-hearted excuse about looking for a shoe; Byron remarks that Aria used to hide her Halloween candy in her boots, and after he leaves, Aria realizes aloud, â€śHe knows.â€ť
Speaking of creepy, now that Toby appears to be part of the A-Team, his evil face quota has jumped up tremendously. While Spencer is left wondering (or not so much wondering) why Mona would pick the Academic Decathlon out of all the clubs in Rosewood, Toby goes off to meet with his unnamed boss, looking back one last time at Spencer to scowl.
Hannah is determined to get to the bottom of Lucasâ€™ involvement with Mona and the rest of the As. Lucas explains that Mona was blackmailing him for selling test answers, and when he tried to get out, Mona (but as we know, Toby) tried to run him over with her car. Lucas plans to start homeschooling to avoid interacting with Mona, which will unfortunately probably only perpetuate his extreme awkwardness.
Meanwhile, Byron and Meredith are fighting in the Montgomery house because, apparently, Meredith lives there now? He grabs her burnt arm forcefully, but after noticing Aria, shuts her bedroom door to block her from the argument. Are sympathies for Ariaâ€™s new mommy arising?
Back in Pailey land, Paige and Emily are searching for the aforementioned party in the woods, to which no one seemed to have given the two former most prominent members of the swim team proper directions. On the way, Paige finally snaps, telling Emily, â€śI canâ€™t do anything since Halloween!â€ť
She reveals that her parents, in fact, arenâ€™t being protective, and she is having trouble dealing with the aftermath of that eventful night alone. Referencing their first date, Paige admits she put on her brave face for Emily because, â€śyou like strong women, right?â€ť
