Pretty Little Liars "Out of Sight, Out of Mind" Review: If You Don't See a Body...

Pretty Little Liars S03E21: "Out of Sight, Out of Mind"

Well, that was a quick escalation for Spencer.

There've been comments for weeks that Spencer was headed toward one of two places: prison or the psych ward. I hope you had Radley in the pool.

While I'm not shocked by Spencer's reaction and eventual catatonia given the events of "Out of Sight, Out of Mind," I am a little disappointed by the promise we saw in Spencer earlier this season getting delayed by the last couple of episodes. We saw a manipulative, nasty side of her that I was hoping would chase down all the members of the A Team and at least level the playing field slightly. But she's been struggling too hard with her sad-sackness to realize that potential.

There were some glimmers. Standing up to Mona reminded me that she could still have some spark in her and chasing Mona through the woods with the fire of a thousand suns showed me what could be. But, when she received that wreath and decoded it to mean "EM," you could tell that she still had too much to lose to realize her inner anti-hero. If you have to plead with impressionable, gullible Emily, you're definitely in a weak position. Certainly too weak and distracted to realize that the EM on the banner wasn't for Emily but for "ME"—Toby.

Now is Toby really dead? I'm going to have to refer to soap opera rules: If you don't see a body, s/he's still alive. That's how I feel about Alison and that's how I feel about Toby. Spencer saw a tattoo, a substance that she may imagine to be blood, and a motorcycle helmet covering up a face. No independent coroner to confirm, no dice. No one checked for vital signs or even looked at the face of whoever was under the blanket. I call shenangians.

Nevertheless, it was enough to get Spencer locked up at Arkham Asylum, where she can get in touch with the madwomen festering inside her, begging to get out. Heck, even the play to get into Radley might have been part of a master plan to seek vengeance against the people who took Toby away from her. Find E. Lamb and you may find a missing puzzle piece.

Emily tried her best to find E. Lamb but was thwarted by a wondrous police database search. What are the odds that Emily, when trying to be discreet and stealthy with her computer time, comes across the only program in the universe that loads images from the bottom up? All we learned from the horizontal striped shirt is that Lamb's mom still shops for him.


To Em's credit, she really tried her best to track down Toby, including violating her own advice from last week. I'm not sure "Hot Water" Emily (who hijacked Paige's mission by saying going places alone is what gets them in trouble) would approve of "Out of Sight, Out of Mind" Emily heading to the Rosewood warehouse district by herself, after dark, after listening to a desperate Spencer pleading that she be safe. And then, on top of that, sit in her car for almost two and a half hours. And open up a strange package that was sitting in her busted-up car. That's the kind of naivete that people sending anthrax pray for.

But she did catch a glimpse of Red Coat and here's where I'm afraid I might be conflating two of the shows I watch. Red Coat walks into a place with a bunch of workers and disappears. One of them knows Emily's name and is being that taunting kind of secret that people in Rosewood like to be. I know that the A Team is bigger than the original one person the Liars thought it was over the first season or two, but—is A employing a warehouse full of workers? Someone has to make the dollhouses, right?

Or maybe the woodworking shop is just a front for A. The question of funding addressed itself again with Mona counting through a wad of cash and with such an elaborate scheme surrounding Toby's "death," that money has to come from somewhere. Maybe they sell little coffin message-carriers on the side. The question is, how would A hire all these people? Does she have a cult following like Joe Carroll on The Following? Are they just as simple? Are they the ones keeping this project moneyed?

It's no secret that I consider Ezra to be a possible source of the funding for the A operation, but I'll spare you my conspiracy theories since we're finally looking at an opportunity for Aria to find her way out. Yes, feeling like the mistress babysitter instead of the legitimate girlfriend tends to wear a person down, I would imagine. And while the series of events may be quick for her character since she went from doubtless to doubt in the span of 45 minutes, I think it's a natural progression. To be a teenager and see your boyfriend raising a child that you have no connection to can sour you pretty quick.

Also, treating your girlfriend like a neglectful babysitter in fear of what your baby mama is going to say when she gets there can't help Ezra either. If you care at all what Ezra thinks. Which I don't. Because he's a child-toucher.


And that leaves us with Hanna winning Dumbest Liar of the Week. It's well documented how much I love a quippy Hanna but people listen to her advice too often. Why would Ashley take the advice of her daughter, who is no stranger to the police interrogation room, about how the system works? And then there's the car thing, which you watch happen and just cringe with the foolishness.

A trades in one thing: secrets. Secrets have been A's thing since the beginning, even before this season's turn toward the macabre. Why would you continue to create more secrets? The best defense against A is to be completely and totally open about everything you do. Let your mother be contrite. Burying things never works. You guys are receiving trinkets from a coffin, for crying out loud. Who's a car in a lake going to stop?

While I didn't find this episode as emotionally trying as many of the people I saw lamenting about it on Twitter, it was mostly because I didn't consider any of the events that occurred to be devastating so much as I saw them as setting the table for the last three episodes of the season. That there are three more episodes in the season should give you pause as to the truth of everything happening in front of you. "Out of Sight, Out of Mind" tried my patience on more than one occasion, but the game is set up for what should be a more rewarding homestretch.



NOTES


– Sometimes, when Shay Mitchell has to react to something, I feel like she took acting classes from Joey Tribbiani.

– The show is trying to sell us hard on Toby being the hoodie that trapped Spencer in the steam room. Last week, comments abounded with regard to how no one was fooled by the Toby red herring. Good for you. I hope you saw their case against Toby this week as circumstantial.

– So, yeah, Aria and Ezra might split up due to the complications of an adult situation. But that's a good thing for Ezra. He gets an opportunity to make things work with the mother of his child, sure, blah blah. But it also means he has an excuse to invite more high school girls over to babysit his kid! Score!

– Tweet I wish I thought of from @iansgoose:

– This is probably the worst round of lying any of the Liars have produced all season. Aria lying to her mom about the toys for Emily-I-mean-Hanna and then Hanna to Aria about meeting her mom after hearing some sirens. This is the one thing you guys are supposed to be good at. Other than being pretty and little.

– Maybe I'm assuming too many good qualities in Spencer. Maybe, like Noel says, this is where Spencer becomes The Joker.

At least the writers seem to understand how futile it is to try and make Ezra interesting and they're trying to kill this relationship organically (thank you conversation with Holly Marie Combs). As the fans know, Emily's not all that interesting, but at least she's still a decent tool to move the plot forward; on top of that, she's the reason we have Paige in the show~! :3 The show needed the cop car in that lake; they know Hanna was acting stupid, so they tried to compensate by having the characters remark upon how stupid what she's doing was. The effort at lamp-shading the stupidity was appreciated, but I honestly feel as though they could have found another way to get the car into the lake. As usual, Spencer is the high point of the story. Troian Bellisario's catatonia was legitimately chilling; be it moxy or weakness, I'm always engaged by Ms. Bellisario's acting and my only desire is that they continue to take the character in an interesting direction.

i thought aria and ezra would break up cuz of wes... i dont see the point in that really... actually i dont see the point in any of those aria storylines... like her mom dating and now what? i've no idea how that ended... and where's meredith? and her dad? they vanish just like that..

I'm getting too skeptical for nearly everything that's going on right now. To me, 1) Spencer is too smart and calculative to actually loose it, and I'm confident this is part of a complex master plan. If not, the writers really ruined her for no good reason. 2) Because they can't really have killed Toby. That would be the worst. It makes more sense for the body to be Wilden, because he's the worst. 3) And Ashleigh has been seeing strange things this year. 4) I honestly don't believe the writers would break up Ezria. They love them too much. I would happily see Aria with anyone else but I just don't believe her doubts can be permanent.

So yeah, nothing that's happening really sets me off. I'm ready for some answers and for the liars to become a bit smarter considering this is their life now and they should really have learned a thing or two by now.

Sometimes I could get very mad at this show when they allow certain stupidity to happen and I can't phrase it any gentler than that, like this week with the police car like come on really isn't this a little first season, I mean I love Hannah and all but how can you expect to do something like that and to not have it bite you in the ass in the end, haven't we learned anything, are the girls not watching this show!!! , this is A! if you have a really big secret especially one that's probably going to have you end up in a orange jumpsuit or your mom be sure A is going to use it against you aaaaaand is probably going to make your life a living hell as a result, knowing all that and still choosing to doing something soo dumb it's just… what's the word I'm looking for hmmm … stupid .

or last week when emily said the photo she and jason found was lost and aria said "from now on everything we find go straight to our phones" and I'm like didn't this occurred to you before whenever you came close to an incriminating evidence, at least if you're not going to go with that to the police because they can't be trusted at least have the decency to make copy's ,just back the fucking thing up if it's that important , like that video they had of alison and ian that was on spencer lap top at least put it on your flash drive that's what it's for, don't let it get stolen from you in gym class and later removed or like that time they found the videos which probably got Alison killed why put it only on emily's computer to only get it later erased by A here's a thought why don't you put it in another computer as well , is caleb the only guy sensible enough to back things up because I would have expected the same from spencer or even Emily probably not hanna.



sorry for the long rant but that had to be said I love this show but this stuff really bug me also I'm happy aria is finally getting a reality check for her relationship with ezra. I'm not one of the haters who think ezra is a perv but I'm really not into their all drama in general and also cause I think aria and ezra is part of the A team but that's a different discussion. also how predictable it was that malcolm is going to get hurt the minute aria said yes to babysitting , I could already see the trip to the E.R in my head .

Ok, first i want to say that i for sure don't believe that Toby is dead! I think the body we saw was the cop!
Toby is or still out there, or he just left Rosewood...
Or spencer is really broken, or she is playing a dangerous she seemed broken all the way in the is so much a person can take, and the whole Toby thing, broke her anyway..
Poor Aria, going all through that trouble, for the be dumped in the is going to choose for sure for his kid and Maggie ( a grown up woman), then stay with a young girl, who has no clue how to take care of a Let's see how that plays out. Loved the whole talking with her mother moment.
Emily, can be annoying, but somehow i keep liking is so alone 3 hours in that car, going to that workplace and find out her window is broken, with a can be so bolt it..
Hannah and her mom, what shall i love when A involves the parents into her sick now.. I think Hannah should have told her mom about the car...
Nive me sitting on the edge of my chair!!!! Nice!!

I'm so happy that Aria is finally putting some distance between her and Ezra! I want Wes back!
There's just one thing in all this that keeps bugging me, so please help me and correct me if I'm wrong: I remember that last season A made the scaffolding where Toby was working fall, injuring him... do I remember right? Was that just a set up? That's the only thing keeping me from believing that Toby's in the A team from the beginning...

Anyway, I also think that until I see the bodies both Toby and Alison are alive, Alison is actually A and this is just her crazy-scheming against her four minions like she used to.

Well, hello again Nick! I love reading your reviews, they are insightful! Also this --

>>>"So, yeah, Aria and Ezra might split up due to the complications of an adult situation. But that's a good thing for Ezra. He gets an opportunity to make things work with the mother of his child, sure, blah blah. But it also means he has an excuse to invite more high school girls over to babysit his kid! Score! " LOL XD <<

I can't believe Spencer actually ended up institutionalized, it is something I predicted last week but I had no idea that it would actually happen. I agree Shay Mitchell is a terrible actress, I thought she did a fine job when the series began but she has become progressively worse and worse. There are a lot of other things that bothered me about this episode. Just to name a few, first and foremost...Spencer's stupidity...

Many times before the show have mentioned numerous times that Spencer is the smartest of the girls. You can'd do that on a numerous occasions and then contradict yourself by having Spencer do something as stupid as finding a body with a helmet on, and having her assume it's Toby's body and that he is dead. It just doesn't work, it does not make any sense at all! If she is so smart, she would have taken off the helmet instead of running after Mona like a complete and total idiot. It just bugs me so much!

Anyway, moving on to Aria... This whole kid storyline have gone too far. I honestly do not care about Maggie, Ezra or their kid at this point....I just wish they would drop it. GET RID OF THEM. Might as well get rid of Aria, she has done nothing but obssess over Ezra and tell her friends she needs them because she has Ezra problems....=.= Like are you serious? Are we even watching the same show anymore? Oh, and A doesn't give a damn about Aria....

P.S. Obviously the body Spencer found is Wilden....and not Toby. I just can't believe how stupid they are making her out to be....as well as the rest of the girls.

Rant Over lol

1. I expected Spencer to end up in a prison or asylum at the series final. It happened a lot sooner then I thought. Not sure if I'm happy about it. Next week everyone is probably going to look for Spencer. She didn't have any documents / id with her. So for everyone concerned Spencer is missing. I don't think she's pretending to be catatonic - it's the real deal.

2. Toby is probably alive - as we didn't see his face. I like the theory of Detective Creeperson's body being a substitute for Toby.

3. Toby's friend from workshop is so A Team. He knew Emily's name and as far as I remember she didn't introduce herself to him.

4. Pushing the police car into the pond was such a stupid idea. Someone had to find it. And now there are Hannah's (and possible Emily's) fingerprints inside. I hope she looks good in orange cause they are already cleaning a cell for her.

5. Aria had a chance to become a professional nanny (way better future then an addict prostitute) and she blew it. Run when you still can girl.

6. Ezra, the child-toucher. He creeps me everytime he's on screen! What's worse we now have Ezra's Spawn. Give him 20 years or so and Malcolm will molest high school girls like his dear Papa.

7. And the worst mother of the year award goes to... Piper! It's a wonder she still has parental rights.

Thanks for review, Nick!

Well the description for episode 23 is "Spencer (Troian Bellisario) searches for answers about Mona." Maybe she's searching in Radley? I don't know, if she's really catatonic, it's a speedy recovery.

First, all I could think when Aria agreed to watch Ezra's new kid, is, "That's what a teen girlfriend is good for! Babysitting!"

I like that Aria is the one having doubts. She's a kid, and kids should not be anxious to raise kids. Her, "I don't know how to be a parent," line was smart, and accurate. No one really knows how to be a parent until they are one, you don't get "practice" kids, but at 16-17-18 years old, being a parent isn't something to strive for. Although the ER nurse saying "Are you immediate family?" And then closing the curtain was super dumb. I get the symbolism to close Aria out of the rest of them being a "family" but they wouldn't have let her in if that were a rule, which it isn't, because only intensive care has that rule.

Shay Mitchell does look sometimes like she smells the fart or is multiplying 294x67 in her head. Well said.

Though I doubt Toby is dead, I also don't think that he locked Spencer in there. For being smart, the liars are sometimes very stupid. If A has a person like Toby working for them, why wouldn't anyone else be suspect? Couldn't there be an A Team? (giggle). Why would they not have thought of this? And to continue to keep secrets and lie, I don't get it. What punishment could be as bad as a lifetime of questioning your whole life and every person in it?

So...I pulled out my long buried soap opera knowledge to view this particular episode with and my conclusions...

1. Toby is not dead (no real body, Mona's stupid yell out and the fact that Keegan Allen was still right there in all the Oz clips...these episodes were filmed awhile ago, he likely doesn't owe ABC Family anything further if he is off the show)

2. Spencer is faking the catanonia state (she is really upset and likely things Toby is actually dead, unless that tattoo was not exactly in the right place) because I think she has realized that Radley plays a part or at least allows a certain freedom that she can't exercise as herself.

I found the whole Emily thing ridiculous...you sat in your car for over two hours? Red Coat, you too hung around the whole time? That loading function? Well, so what if Toby's picture came up?

I am suspicious of Aria again....but well, excellent out to the Ezra thing.

Toby is not dead! I refuse to believe it. In these shows not seeing the face of the dead person indicates that its not the person you think it is, well majority of the time.

Also, I'm really enjoying loony Spencer she plays the part very well.

"Sometimes, when Shay Mitchell has to react to something, I feel like she took acting classes from Joey Tribbiani." <-- its funny cos its true!

The one thing I did really like about this episode is that it was the first time all season each of the main four had an interesting story. This season has been leaning awfully hard towards Spencer and to a lesser-extent Aria and it was nice to have some balance with something substantial for each of them. I couldn't help but laugh though when that picture starting loading from the bottom up. When does that ever happen?

It seems pretty clear to me that Spencer isn't so much crazy as she is faking it to get into Radley. I'm reasonably sure acquiring information is her endgame. I just don't see why they'd lock her up in there's no payoff. Also, come on, it's pretty obvious that the finale is going to be what this season has been leading up to: Spencer and Toby come face to face. I do agree though, once Spencer got back on good terms with the other girls, she lost some of her fight. I want ruthless Spencer back.

I don't get spencers reaction. All the girls now know without a doubt that Mona is still A/on the A-team. So Spencer follows her into the woods, finds a dead body, Mona shouts "hes Dead" and runs away. why not call the police tell them you found a body, tell them Mona ran from the scene of the crime and that you followed her there after seeing her acting suspicious with a big fat bag o' cash! Given Monas record of insanity from spending 2 years trying to kill four of her classmates and holding their therapists son hostage, she would be convicted.

Oh my gosh. This episode had me wanting to just grab all of them, sit them in a room and give them all a long lecture on how to not be complete morons and make the worlds worst decisions continuously. Or just lock them in a room so they can't make any more decisions period. I think I will go through each girl individually with Aria being the one who had the clearest mindset - again not much of a compliment she still made some outrageous decisions.

The Idiot Rankings:

5. In fifth place with an honourable mention we have Ashley who listened to her 16 (are they still 16?) year old daughter about not telling anyone about the hit and run, where if she did tell the cops and her lawyer she could have probably gotten away with it by calling it 'self defence'. Then throughout the episode rely on that daughter to get through the hit and run escapades.

4. Aria was actually good this episode mainly because this child thing is so not threatening and unrelated to the A team. It was nice that she tried hard to make her relationship work, but I think she's finally realising that she isn't an adult yet and may be in over her head. However she made the stupid decision to let Hanna sink Wilden's car. I know she was protesting, but she should have tried harder. Like....not let Hanna even get into Wilden's car at all. So while the least stupid liar this week she was still instrumental in the whole car sinking plan.

3. Spencer comes third because she is usually the smartest of the bunch which I admire but she is sinking to the depths of insanity. Firstly she followed Mona - by walking about 2 feet behind her. Has she never watched a cop show?? You need like a block between you and the person you are tailing not 1 metre! It was so obviously a set up for Spencer to track Mona that I'm just really disappointed in her. Also as soon as I saw "toby" lying dead I just groaned, as if that is Toby. I will not believe it till I see his rotting corpse for myself. A fake tramp stamp and a face covered in a bike helmet, does not equal Toby. Then Spencer went and broke down. So weak. I had so much more faith in her, she was showing so much potential earlier in the episode. Speaking up to Mona, realising Emily may be targeted and now she's a useless sack of bones in some asylum. If this isn't part of some master plan by Spencer then I'm going to be annoyed.

2. Hanna only gets second place because she didn't have Emily's naivety about Toby. However she did on multiple occasions believe she knew better than her mum. Then she went and sunk Wilden's car which was COMPLETELY STUPID. You think after 2 years (or however long it has been since the first episode) they would have learnt to not be such idiots! This was a season 1 Hanna mistake. Aria knew it was stupid yet Hanna went through with it. A car in a lake doesn't make the car disappear. After all the Hitchcock references this show makes you'd think they'd actually have seen Psycho.

1. Emily. I can't even being to express what a fool this girl is. So firstly after knowing what complete wreck Spencer has been and how difficult it was for Spencer to tell the girls about Toby she just flat out didn't believe Spencer. Then after Spencer told her how dangerous it was to go after Toby she started calling his phone, messaging him, going through his loft...why would you do that? Your best friend who was dating and in love with Toby is shattered and you think you know him better and believe he isn't involved. Oh Em, at least you're an athlete because you won't be winning any academic awards. Of course then out of the blue she gets a text from "toby" HA a text and goes to meet him at some warehouse. SERIOUSLY? This is a good idea? Seriously?! This is why she is the biggest idiot of the week.

I don't know how much more stupidity I can handle from all these girls. But for hilarity's sake I will continue to watch in the hope that they make some smart decisions. Also laughed so hard when the photo at the station loaded from the bottom up - no where does that happen. I also laughed when the police lights started flashing under water. I wished they'd never stopped.

Long rant, but it was necessary haha.

I have to agree with the first part of your comment about the girls being complete morons but I disagree with the ranking a bit. Spencer should have ranked first (1), numero uno just because everything she did in the episode goes against her mentality and personality. She should have taken off the helmet to make sure that really is Toby for one, and secondly she should have known better that to assume Toby is dead. Remember the shovel? Remember how A played you? Remember the trophy that was planted (by A) among Ian's things. Remember the fake Ian suicide note written by A? Really? She should know better than to trust anything Mona (A) says.

Either way, thumbs up! XD

This show is so ridiculous at this point, but that's what makes it so awesomely awful. Not a single one of them is capable of making a good life choice. If you left them in a room with rat poison, told them not to eat the rat poison, and left them there alone with it they'd all be dead by the time you got back. Can't wait to see how they'll s*** the bed in this season's finale.

Well I totally agree with this episode not being emotional. For me it was hilarious (in a stupid kinda way) to watch the sinking car with the red light on once the car was finally under water. Malcolm's accident was ridiculous: you don't bring a kid to the ER for a small cut like that. There was some really really bad lying that wasn't necessary and I would've hoped that Spencer could've transform herself into a "beast" (but hopefully this is going to happen...). Hope next week will be better!

This episode was ridiculous. None of these girls show any type of patience, to just wait out a few more seconds, to actually finding some real answers; they've got to stop this immediate jumping to conclusions thing. It's so frustrating and annoying.

1) Hannah not watching the end of the video, how do we know it didn't record the part after Hannah's mom left the scene? I was waiting to see, Wilden get up or something but no they just showed me something I had seen an episode earlier. Filler.

2) Emily not just waiting a few more seconds for the computer to load to see what that man looked like. Is that not relevant anymore? Or was that just another filler

3) When Spencer leaned in to take the helmet off and stopped for a long dramatic pause, to run off and chase Mona in a dark forest. I understand she's very emotional now, but its 'A' theirs a reason he was wearing his helmet.

And as for Aria's storyline I couldn't help but laugh that they took the kid to the hospital for scraping his chin. I just hope Aria drove the kid there, and not used an ambulance!

Does anyone else think that body is Wilden's (?) instead of Toby's? A probably added a fake tattoo and purposely put his shirt up a little so Spencer would see it. The body was all cut up from what looked like a crash or you know, getting hit by Hanna's mom haha. That's my theory!

It does make some sense, I believe that Toby might not be really dead, not showing his face was certainly suspicious. It would also be an interesting way of using Wilden's accident, but what about Hanna's mom seeing him alive? Was she just hallucinating because of guilt or something?

If anyone is thinking of starting up a PLL Anonymous group, I'll join. I'm killing myself over here.

I thought the episode was frustrating in a completely stupid way. Characters were all put on essential paths they refused to follow. The fact that Spencer doesn't find odd that a dead body has an helmet and doesn't return to confirm the identity of the victim was weird but it's nothing compared to Emily's laziness. A guy she doesn't know uses her name right after she noticed a blond girl in red coat and yet she simple goes back to her car. For someone who's blackmailed and threatened for years she doesn't seem a bit curious...which doesn't make sense considering all the efforts she made to find Toby in the episode.
Aria's story as usual was useless Even A finds her too boring to manipulate her anymore. (Although her relationship with Ezra keeps being more and more disturbing as no one, not even her own mother finds weird that a teenager girl is babysitting the son of her older boyfriend with the blessing of the son's mother who's gone job hunting. This girl is going to be seriously messed up when she turns 18.).

First, as long as we don't get reliable confirmation of Toby's death, I think he asked for Mona's help in staging that scene so that Spencer and Emily would stop looking for him. And the cash Mona was counting was likely for him to run away somewhere.
Second, I think I saw a hint of a twisted smile in that final closeup of Spencer's face, so she might also be playing Mona to get to the truth. We know that Radley as a place might even hold some secrets, what with it's creepy closed down children's wing and the nurses who seemed way to interested in Mona and her visitor's during her stay there.
Finally, Emily looking up the only database that doesn't load the face first - my thoughts exactly. It'd be frustrating if it wasn't so funny.

I totally agree. I'm sure that Spencer is just faking it to infiltrate Radley and find out more information.
