Are you ready to recap all the OMG moments from “The Remains of The A”? Join the flock below!
Top 5 OMG Moments and The Big Ta-da from PLL Episode 3.06:
The Case of The Ankle Bracelet: What is April Rose? Well, it happens to be an antique shop and not at actual girl who set up their friends so that Ian and Garrett could go about with their twisted, perverted antics — phew! However, Spencer being the super sleuth that she is, enlists Jason in her hunt for Alison’s killer and the two of them go in search for the store. The shop is run by a magical looking old woman and a very flamboyantly dressed man, which is why we love this shop already. However, while Jason schmoozes with the owners Spencer spots a familiar-looking gold ankle bracelet and suddenly has a flashback to when Alison ditched her to go out looking like a trampy teen call-girl (the kind they make Lifetime movies about) and wore that exact bracelet. Spencer tells Jason that anklet belonged to Alison and being the great big half-brother that he is, he shells out $400. Thankfully, due to the fact that they have learned from past mistakes and at the insistence of Peter Hastings, they turn it over to the cops as evidence…and the cops find blood on it belonging to someone other than Garrett. Spencer than races to her room where she collapses in a pool of tears and bemoans that it will never be over. Crazy A then texts her to confirm what she just said: ”Hey Spence, I have one more surprise for you. Garrett isn’t their killer. -A.” Creepy!
Holden’s Random Cameo: While Hanna is overseeing Operation Catch A and Spencer is ankle bracelet hunting with Jason, Emily is…snacking away on burgers, coffee, and cheese fries? Yep, she’s enjoying herself for once! However, the fun doesn’t last for long because as the waitress clears her plate, Em notices that her placemat has a maze on it and she quickly experiences another flashback to the night she can’t remember. Here’s what she spies: Herself writing a note “I’m sorry I left you” on the placemat and then staring into Sputnik diner’s jukebox where spots her own reflection and that belonging to a fella with dark hair. This faceless fella caresses her hand and a sliver of his wrist appears and she notices that there’s some sort of “eye” pyramid tattoo on it (N.A.T. member?!) But wait– there’s more! While attending the volunteer dance at the church Emily conveniently bumps into Holden (where have you been, man) who happens to have the same tat on his wrist! He licks it clean off (just like the way he cleared off the frosting on the cupcake he’s holding) and tells her it was a for a party that switches venues…a party he used to see Maya attending back in the day. (OMFG!!!!) Cue another flashback — Emily gets a glimpse of the back of a man’s head and suddenly Holden begins looking less like Aria’s ninja-fighting, glue-eating childhood bestie and more like a creepy suspect!
An Unanswered Prayer: Hanna must have been a professional criminal in a former life because girlfriend has mad skills! (She proves so by successfully forging Garrett’s note to his mom — even Spencer seemed impressed!) She quickly scribbles away asking A to meet them at the deserted Rosewood church by the organ. (No offense, but we would never subject willingly ourselves to such creepiness!) Unfortunately, despite her wily handwriting talents, stealth is not her forte because while switching out the notes, Mrs. Reynolds flatlines (i.e. goes into cardiac arrest and/or dies) and Hanna speeds out of the room. However, because she does not possess an Invisibility Cloak like Harry Potter, the security cameras capture her fleeing from the suspicious scene. So good ol’ Detective Wilden takes it upon himself to read the note and meet Hanna at her suggested location. While waiting for “A,” Hanna hears footsteps and quickly hides behind pew, but Wilden spots her. He begans interrogating her, asking her why she’s helping him — him as in Garrett — but Hanna is confused and tells him to shut his trap basically. (And all this happens inside a church — for shame, people!)
Love for A Preacher Man: Poor Ashley. She can’t seem to catch a break when it comes to romance. First, she endured a long divorce from her husband Tom. Then, she had to shack up with Detective Wilden for a few days just to get him to drop Hanna’s shoplifting charges. Then, she got flirty with Aria’s hypocrite dad, Byron. (Thankfully it was a once time deal.) Now? She’s putting the moves on pastors…unwillingly too. After baring some cleavage and joking about alcohol at the volunteer dance, Ashley discovers that Ted is actually a Bible-loving man who’s leads his churchgoers into prayer every Sunday. To make matters worse, Detective Wilden arrives to the party as well and sort of shames Ashley in front of her potential new boo. Holy moly! (At least she’s not tied up with Peter Hastings like Veronica is — because that man is up to no good and seems very keen on getting Spencer off the trail towards uncovering Alison’s killer!)
The Odd Couple: In an attempt to help Spencer out and keep Toby out of her hair while she and Jason go ankle bracelet hunting, Hanna comes up with this whole story about how there’s some nerdy guy hounding her at the volunteer place and she’d like to throw him off her hot It girl scent. So Toby does the noble thing and accompanies his lady’s stunning BFF to the volunteer dance at the Rosewood church. Unfortunately for him, the evening is chock full of awkwardness and uncomfortable moments of silence due to the fact that Hanna is on “A” patrol. Poor Toby then finds out that Spencer lied to him about her whereabouts and that Hanna made the whole creepy crush story up just to keep him out of the way. He then calls Spencer and leaves her a voicemail letting her know that he may not be a Hastings but he’s certainly smart like one!
The Big Ta-Da: Ezra is just a regular, nice guy, right? He’s enjoy a night in while sipping on beer and watching a Western movie when Aria appears for a cuddle sesh and…to tell the truth about why she had run out of his apartment earlier that day. She recounts her awful first day as Laurel’s assistant and then blames her horrible set day on the fact that she had been distracted by Ezra’s mysterious cash stash. ($50,000 smackers yo!) Well, Ezra whips up some tall-tale about how his grandfather left him a 1967 Jaguar vehicle and he had sold it in exchange for cash (to give the new owner a break on taxes). Aria appears satisfied with his story…but we’re not and neither is Ezra as he nervously peers over the couch at his sock drawer where the ample cash wads remain hidden, and a cowboy utters the following line on his television screen: “When you’re loyal to man, you’re loyal to everything about him … Even his faults … Even his son.” OMG — did Ezra just flat out lie to Aria? Ahh!
