Alison Clues by Episode - “These Books Were Made for Stalking”
I couldn’t help but notice Alison’s expression when Spencer ensures Hanna that they’re all in this together. Not making eye contact, looking down and to the left, frowning…doesn’t really go along with the supportive message that Spencer is trying to get across.
Oh look, here we are right back with Alison playing the victim and Emily comforting her. Once again we see how easily she can manipulate Emily into doing whatever she wants, acting however she wants her to. This is yet another reminder that Ali’s behavior is anything but consistent, and that she still has the girls - or at least one of them - wrapped around her finger.
Hmm…so Alison has a spare key to Spencer’s barn, the exact same place where the board game from A.D. appeared. Interesting. Why did they feel the need to make it so clear that Alison has easy access to the barn? And while her insistence that Emily doesn’t go in there alone can come across as caring, it can also come across as suspicious…why doesn’t she want Emily playing the game without her there? And as a final point on this, notice that the game pieces are moved when they look at it next, like A.D. has been in there to change things around. And who did we just find out has an extremely easy way in and out of that same location? (Credit to @thebestplltheories for being the first to point this out!)
So now A.D. is all involved with the Addison situation, forcing Emily to get her into trouble? The only person besides Emily and Paige (both of whom are very unlikely suspects at this point) who knows anything about Addison and what she’s like…is Ali.
The way that the number 317 is emphasized is very odd and exaggerated. Should we be paying attention to that specific episode? Looking back, one of the biggest pieces of information in 3x17 is the reveal that Alison thought she was pregnant…and we later learn that she wasn’t.
