Her house stood quietly on the edge of the dark park. Covered by ramblers, it was isolated, like a fairy-tale house in the woods, and she lived there and went in and out, fresh and tender like a rose on a summer morning…

I love “Shadow Play” so much, guys. I really thought it was full of this great foreshadowing, and i had this whole wonderful theory based off that episode when it aired, and… I’m just so bummed that this episode is basically rendered irrelevant.
But even if this episode is now obsolete… I stand by this… if Ali isn’t playing these girls now… she most certainly was back then. Maybe she has changed, but she still hasn’t owned up to everything she did.
