Tyra Collette Feels of the Episode: Every time Tyra Collette talked about going to college do you know who was drowning in a puddle of their own tears? US.

Heavy Foreshadowing Be Damned of the Episode: Watching this episode for the first time is like waiting for the plot twist. You see the clues leading to Mona’s #fAtalFinale. You hear her asking who died and saying that she has to survive senior year. You’re introduced to her mom who is a seemingly flawless woman who donates food to the drive and worries that her daughter is being bullied again. You see her excited to be surprised by her favorite cousin at Thanksgiving. And you know that Mona is getting all this screen time because it is her last curtain call. But no! It can’t be! This show is notorious for surprising you! This all must be a red herring! But then it happens. And it’s like…flames…flames…on the side of my face. No wait, those are tears. Mona is dead and our emotional state can be summed up as follows:
Taking Our Anger Out On The Bed Buddies of the Episode: TOBY, WE HATE YOU FOR BEING THE FAKEOUT. FITZ, WHY DIDN’T YOU EVEN COME CLOSE TO DYING?! I HOPE YOU CHOKE ON ALL THAT PIE.
