Despite our natural instincts to defend our girl Spencer, we had to wonder: Is Spencer starting to act like her former frenemy? True, Spencer’s most egregious actions in the episode were under the guise of Emily’s (Shay Mitchell) public enemy, from her throwing the disgusting trash bag on Emily while doing community service, to the staged apres-swim meet fight where she pretends to order Emily around.
But what about when Spencer is just being Spencer? Everything about the Little Liars’ master plan to confront “A” in the greenhouse was seemingly directed by Spencer — she was the first to arrive, the most vehement about getting away from her respective obstacle (Toby, as opposed to Aria’s [Lucy Hale] being grounded and Hanna [Ashley Benson] being forced into a family discussion), and she was definitely the angriest when “A” got away.
You tell us. Is Toby right? Is Spencer starting to take over as the group’s bossy leader?
