Aria and Emily finding Mona in Aria’s room. Mona barely can get a word in before Aria is in wth mode. Apparently Mike invited her, Emily ask the obvious question, why would Mike do that? Mona seems to think its because not everyone wants to avoid her, so I guess she is a little upset with our girls. She tells Aria she loves her wallpaper, zips her purse, wonder what she put in it out of Aria’s room and then storms out. Leaving Aria and Emily to still wonder wth?

Hannah is trying to sound all smart and detective ish. Emily tells her to quit picking up rocks that keep getting thrown at Ali. Spencer comes over to talk to Emily who proceeds to slam her locker and walk away.
Aria sees Mike and Mona is a very thought provoking conversation, mind you it’s more what they aren’t saying that causes the provoking.

Emily realizes Aria is back with EzrA, Aria ask her to cover for her when she misses class.

Back at the pub the waitress brings Spencer a beer that EzrA had ordered to go with his pie. Ding ding ding , Spencer puts it together. EzrA is the guy Ali met. Oh btw board shorts is the name of the beer. So basically the reveal is something we all had assumed for awhile now. EzrA is the college boy Ali was seeing.
Emily is at the school making copies when she hears a door slam. Naturally she goes telling down the hallway. She goes to EzrA’s classroom and the door shuts. Emily gets her phone out to call her dad. The PA system starts blaring music. Emily leaves the room while leaving a message for her dad. She looks at the sign above the entrance of the school it says “ACT NORMAL, BITCH.” Emily locks herself in the room with the copier and continues to talk to her dads answering machine.
