Pretty Little Liars S3 Episode 16 “Misery Loves Company”

By Thursday, January 24, 2013 0 Permalink

I was really excited for this week’s episode of Pretty Little Liars. Why? Because I’m sick and twisted and wanted to see Spencer find out about Toby. A lot of viewers thought the scene was “heartbreaking,” but out of all the little liars’ relationships the Toby/Spencer combo was never one I got into. Which is interesting because Spencer is probably my favorite of the four girls, but I have to say, the scene in the kitchen, their short confrontation, was great. This post is so long I had to use a page break!

The girls stop by to see Aria who is still in sick, sleep, zombie mode. Do we trust the tea Meredith is giving her? Emily doesn’t seem too sure about it but then Meredith was confiding in Aria last episode so we must be able to trust her, right? Hanna’s here to help Aria’s sickness with: trash, gingerale and Saved by the Bell. Do they still show reruns of SBTB?

Toby and Mona are hanging out in the A Team crib planning some “thing” that Toby doesn’t think they’re ready for. He’s preoccupied with Spencer lying to him about A, who she says is no longer bothering them. But Mona doesn’t care about what’s going on in the land of Toby and Spencer because A is calling the shots. Toby and Mona aren’t in charge, ‘She’s in charge’. Oh really? A is a she? Well, who is she?

My guesses for who A could be and please let me know who you think A is too; Melissa (never trusted her), Alison (maybe she isn’t really dead?), Meredith (already not a fan of the girls), Paige (because that would be a good twist). Discuss.

The song in this scene is: Melissa Etheridge – Shout Now

Spencer is acting weird because tonight is Toby and Spencer’s anniversary dinner and she’s trying to surprise him with a secret dinner at his loft. He has to get ready for work at her house because ABC family wants to show off as much of Toby’s abs as possible his water is shut off at the loft. What this? A hole in Toby’s pocket? Don’t you know that your girlfriend is an amazing seamstress and can fix this?

Meredith is being super sketchy sneaking around the house while Aria sleeps. She obviously wants the pages and questions Aria about them. Meredith is A? Maybe. She steals Aria’s phone so no one, including her Mom, can contact her. She’s definitely drugging her.

During this little montage Emily follows Caleb because Hanna is worried that he’s going on some secret mission to “take down” Mona, Spencer is preparing for tonight’s anniversary dinner at Toby’s, and Hanna is on her way to an interview at Corin’s.

Spencer, while looking for a pen opens up a drawer and we see Toby’s Radley ID – just chillin’. This has to be how she puts it together right?

And Hanna gets tricked by A, there isn’t a real interview! Just some torment by the A team in a room full of faceless mannequins. A texts Hanna, “Next time you’ll be left faceless.” Which is clever, except that someone (maybe someone with a hole in their pocket) dropped a key on their way out.

Not shown: Emily follows Caleb but gets a text from Spencer about A’s attack on Hanna so she doesn’t have time to see Caleb meet…Paige! They want to take down the A team. I still think Paige could be A.

The song in this scene is: MS MR – Salty Sweet (Set to be released in March 2013)

Hanna has great hair. No one seems to be worried about Aria! They call her and no one answers and they haven’t talked to her all day. Think something is going on? Naaaah, she’s fine with Meredith.

Hanna gives Spencer the key and later, Toby surprises Spencer with flowers on his break. He sees the key on Spencer’s kitchen counter but Spencer lies and says it’s Melissa’s. The little lying couple.

Aria is having a crazy hallucination and sees Alison in her room looking for the pages. Alison clues Aria in on the drugged tea and Hanna and Emily run into Meredith who is trying to refill her prescription for clonazepam. Hallucinations are a side affect for clonazepam…thanks Wikipedia. Just sayin’, in case you’re thinking that Alison is still alive and just happens to conveniently show up while the girls are out of their minds.

After Aria wakes up and remembers what Alison said, she realizes that Meredith has locked her in her room! So Aria breaks a mirror to use as a weapon but she zonks out again only to wake up to Meredith holding the broken piece of mirror above her. Ahhh! Psycho woman. Aria runs away to call the police but Meredith hits her on the head and knocks her out.

Alison’s outfit:

Toby in his A attire breaks into Spencer’s house to find the key, and this is totally not how I thought this would go down, but Spencer confronts him right then and there. Oh, is this what you’re looking for? Tears. Slap. Drama. Toby got too sloppy and shouldn’t have left his Radley ID just sitting in a drawer for anyone to find. You have a creepy A team trophy room, use it! Spencer breaks down and Toby, looking way too smirky in this scene, disappears when Spencer’s Mom walks in.

Hanna and Emily come to rescue Aria but Meredith locks all of them in the basement until Byron comes home. She tells Byron that the girls know about his conversation with Alison before her death. Byron assures the girls that he wasn’t the last one to see Alison and only talked to her. Aria doesn’t believe him so he offers to go talk to the police. This is enough to convince her and she burns the evidence against him. Which I thought was NOT a good idea.

Spencer, in denial mode, goes over to Toby’s loft but I can’t tell if they changed the locks already or there’s a slide lock (I mean how could they already have the locks changed?). Toby isn’t even there and Spencer is crying through the door to…not Toby, but guess who? Mona. Little bitch is eating Spencer’s anniversary dinner and loving every second of Spencer’s pain. Twisted.
