Rosewood gets a massive storm on the day the students are to take their SAT test, which causes the school to postpone the examinations. Trapped in the school during the storm, the girls' personal lives become stormy as well. Drama strikes each girl differently and manifests itself into different situations. After the storm passes and the girls get to go home, they all come to the realization that taking the SATs would have been a much easier task to complete.Write a Recap »
When I told myself I wanted more insight on the Alison-Emily relationship, this was EXACTLY what I wanted. This gives Emily a whole new layer, being traumatized by flashbacks with her more-than-a-friend. My favorite scene of this entire series was the climax this episode, when the detective questions Emily and she comes out in front of the other girls. I could hear my heart ponding as the drama played out on the screen.
I liked the entire Hanna-Lucas-Mona storyline, up until they showed Lucas's muddy shoes. Is he A? I sure hope not. I also think the whole Spencer's mom's secret thing and the relationship between Aria's dad and Hanna's mom were a little overdone; we care much more about the girls than their parents. I'm also slowly falling out of supporting Ezra and Aria and into supporting Noel and Aria. I hope Aria makes a choice soon; the mid-season finale's next week!
Overall, this episode definitely is one of the candidates for my favorite episode. Can't wait for the next episode!
