Pretty Little Liars Recap: "The Remains of the A"

Emily (Shay Mitchell) started getting flashbacks to the night she was drugged.  She remembered being at a diner with a guy, with a tattoo on his wrist.  When she went over to the church social, he ran into Holden and noticed he had the same tattoo.  Only, it turned out it wasn’t a real tattoo, but a stamp to get into a secret rave club with a constantly changing venue.  He dropped the bomb on Emily that he used to see Maya there, then he basically refused to talk anymore and took off, even though you could tell Emily still had a ton more questions.  Huh.  Maybe that’s why he took off?  So, either he just wanted to enjoy his church party, or he’s hiding something. 
We haven’t seen or heard of Holden for a dozen episodes.  One second he’s fake dating Aria and in a fight club, and next he’s invisible.  Just when I thought he’d join the ranks of Kate, Hanna’s Season 1 boyfriend, and Noel, Holden not only gets a mention, he gets an entire scene!  How about that?  Anyway, his behavior was way too strange for him to not pop back up again and explain it away.  Congrats Holden fans!

After two seasons, it bothers me that the girls never seem to learn. Every plan they set in motion only seems to raise more questions and somehow bring them in trouble.

And I must say by now I thought Spencer and Co. trust other people a little bit more and keep lying to those they supposedly love. I know after what happened to Caleb it seems difficult to tell the truth ... but if ALL the girls would include their boyfriends they could somehow feel protected a lot better. In the end, it effects them too. So in every scene when Toby is being lied to or Ezra, I just feel really sorry for them.

Now that Ezra has a secret of his own, I'm telling myself ... well good for him. Aria has been constantly keeping things from him and acting strange.

This detective is giving me the creeps. Somehow I already saw him going a little bit too far with Hanna ... I could even see him raping her.

I enjoy Spencer and Jason together but I don't think they trust each other. It's like they using one another to get what they want. It's either the girls or no one...

I was wondering about Holden being back after he seemed written out so suddenly without explanation. But I like Holden, so I have no problem with him being back.
