[S4E23] The Girl In The Mask

As Ali finishes her story, a masked figure shoots through the window of the room the girls are in and chases them to the roof. After they get to the top, Ezra miraculously appears to help out. Where on Earth did he even come from?

[S4E23] The Girl in the Mask


Jessica had been working with Ashley on the charity event. When she goes back inside she catches Ashley looking inside a shopping bag in Alison's room. They contained clothes for a girl which were purchased the day before. Jessica kicks Ashley out of the room.

The girls talk about who might be in Alison's grave. Spencer thinks the person who went after Alison could still be out there. Hanna shows up and tells them what her mother found in the bag that day. They suspect that Jessica knows her daughter is still alive. She wants them to volunteer as models at the charity event, which is at the DiLaurentis home, so they can look for the address. Holbrook walks by and mentions there could be a lot of questions for them in the upcoming days.

Downstairs the girls realize Spencer is missing. She walks in crying and tells them about chasing down somebody she thought was Alison in the woods. She takes the corsette off of her dress and they find finger bones inside. There is a message sown inside, asking "What will you do when the rest of me comes out of the grave?"

Sylvia is turning the attic into a den for Morty, so they go through Fran's old junk and find some remarkable things, including a "win a date with Erik Estrada" entry form. Meanwhile, Fran has to attend the reunion for her Kindervelt summer camp and tries to get Mr. Sheffield as her date to impress her camp friends. But the kids surprise Fran when they bring Erik Estrada himself to escort Fran. They go to the reunion, but Erik doesn't stay too long, after all it was all a publicity stunt. Luckily, Mr. Sheffield comes to rescue Fran and unmasks Fran's rival date.

Mr. Sheffield is trying to win Andrew Lloyd Webber over a play written by famous award winner playwriter Dakota Williams. In order to do so, Fran convinces Mr. Sheffield that they should attract Dakota with a gorgeous girl - Yetta! The two have a romantic night in their own way, but when Mr. Sheffield finds out that the play was never finished, he tells Yetta to dump him to get out of the bad deal. When she does, they learn that Dakota has finally finished his play after having his heart broken.

Grace has a friend over and Fran meets his nanny. It's Kurt Jacobs, a very attractive man, who Fran treats as one of her girlfriends because she thinks he's gay. When he makes a move on her she freaks out (after all, this is a guy who's seen her without makeup on!). They still go out on a few dates, but it doesn't work out. Meanwhile, Gracie thinks she's pregnant after being late to watch The Lion King and overhearing Fran say women who are late are pregnant. And Niles tries to point out to both Fran and Mr. Sheffield how "the last apple is only missed after it's gone".

Maggie is invited to her first sweet sixteen party, so Fran takes her to "The Chatterbox", her favorite beauty parlor. Meanwhile, Mr. Sheffield is holding auditions for his next play and this poor girl named Mary Ruth is rejected. She makes friends with Fran, who takes her to The Chatterbox to see if they can hire her as the new shampoo girl (a job also wanted by Sylvia). There, Mary Ruth soon noses herself into the personal life of the owner, Mr. Anthony, and his son, Mimo, who are trying to live without their wife and mother. In the parlor there is also Claude, the gay hairdresser, and Kim, the Chinese manicurist who can paint incredible things on her extra-long nails.

Fran decides to stop chasing men like Dr. Miller told her. Sylvia doesn't like that at all and blames Mr. Sheffield for her daughter staying single forever. Fran, Val and Ms. Babcock decide to go out together on a "girls night", with no pressure to find a man, but after Val and C.C. get dates, Fran finds herself as a fifth wheel on their double date. Alone, embarrassed and depressed, Fran goes home trying to act as if she had a great time with them, but can't. Once again, Mr. Sheffield and Fran find themselves alone, comforting each other. Meanwhile, Dr. Miller tries hypnosis with Sylvia but that doesn't go too well.

Yetta's got a new boyfriend, who's much younger than her (he's 60) and already proposed. Afraid he's after Yetta's money, Sylvia decides to go to the bank to make sure money can't be taken out of their joint accounts without both signatures. While waiting in line, a very bumbling bank robber takes over the bank and makes Sylvia and Fran hostages. The bank robber is so unprepared that he even forgets to put on the mask and accidentally reveals his name - Leslie Tilbett - and Fran ends up making friends with him. They chat, order some food, and the kidnapper even acts as mediator between Fran and Mr. Sheffield (who messed things up with Fran with a Valentine's Day faux pas). When Leslie decides to leave, Fran and Sylvia argue about the best way he should take to escape the cops and they both end up going with him. At the bank door, Mr. Sheffield apologizes for taking back saying he loved Fran, and they make up. Sylvia, though, is still taken as hostage, but the kidnapper is arrested afte

Mai Ling, the Cambodian girl Fran and Val "adopted" in high school for 17 cents a day, is coming to NY to visit them. Sylvia doesn't like the girl, for whom Fran and Val fight over, resulting in a split up between the two best friends. Sylvia thinks Mai Ling will also come between Fran and Mr. Sheffield, but Fran finds out Mai Ling got engaged to Brighton to get a green card!

Upset about Yetta's upcoming wedding, Fran is advised by Dr. Miller to focus her energy on new life projects. She decides to pursue an old dream of becoming a weather girl, and thanks to Sammy, who's Bryant Gumbel uncle, Fran scores an audition for editorial commenter of Public Eye. Mr. Sheffield doesn't like the idea of Fran leaving the house, so he sets up a scheme with Gracie to convince Fran into quitting her new job. But they don't have to do that, Fran ruins her audition by herself (by mistaking gene therapy with therapeutic jeans). Meanwhile, Sylvia has problems accepting her soon-to-be stepfather.

Maxwell's brother, Nigel, is back to throw him a bachelor party, and Fran is terrified because Maxwell doesn't know that she almost married Nigel a year and a half ago. She tries to keep it a secret, but after Nigel gets drunk at the party, he tells Maxwell, just as Fran comes out of the cake in a surprise for him (after Sylvia confessed that Morty cancelled his wedding and ran off with the cake girl - Sylvia!). Fran and Maxwell have a fight over it, and they end up calling the wedding off, until C.C. (under the influence of Prozac) tells Fran that Maxwell didn't spend 5 years "doing the one man show". So Fran gets Marla Maples, who had a quick fling with Maxwell a year and a half ago, and confronts Maxwell. They finally realize they love each other and call the wedding back on.

Sheldon and Raj are arguing about whether or not slow-moving xenon particles would emit light. Sheldon thinks he's right and Raj calls him out on his arrogance. If Sheldon was a superhero, he'd be Captain Arrogant. Sheldon prefers Dr. Arroganto. To get Raj to shut up he calls Penny over. Howard spots his old girlfriend, Bernadette, and wants to play it cool and then crawls under the table.

Searching the woods near where Onion likes to play with his friends, Connie encounters the Gem while Steven gets stuck in a hollow log. When the Gem repeats her question, Connie offers to help her find her dad if she wants. The Gem reiterates that she's not looking for "your dad" but "my dad". She gets interested when she hears Steven address Connie by name, though, and upon getting confirmation of the girl's identity, yells for someone named Topaz. The ground shakes as an enormous fused Gem appears, with all of the missing people contained within her body, all of them save Onion with their mouths blocked so they can't call for help. Connie draws her sword, but is captured when the Topazes unfuse and ensnare her. Steven manages to get free of the log and tries to rescue his friends, but the small Gem pulls a wand from her head and uses it to immobilize him before throwing him against a tree. As he falls unconscious, he hears the small Gem talking about all they have to do is find "my dad" and they'll be done, telling Topaz that she wonders why Homeworld even sent an Aquamarine when Topaz could have done it herself.

  • Alien Abduction: Homeworld Gems kidnap Connie, Sadie, Lars, Jamie, and Onion, and are planning to head back to Homeworld once they find "My Dad".

  • Armor-Piercing Question: When Connie brings up the idea of there being Gems like Steven (half-human, half-Gem), Garnet retorts that it's unlikely. Connie asks her if she's sure, which leaves Garnet speechless.

  • Badass in Distress: Although Connie has been training well and taken down large Gem monsters before, when she tries to defend herself against the two Topazes, she gets stuck in their Fusion very quickly, probably because she didn't expect them to be able to do that.

  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: Aquamarine uses her childlike appearance to seem innocent and helpless to the humans. When she finds the ones she wants, however, she lets the mask slip and calls for the Topaz soldiers to absorb the humans.

  • Caged Inside a Monster: Topaz holds the humans she and Aquamarine are looking for in her body.

  • Call-Back: Onion hasn't been seen since "Doug Out", and Lars and Sadie are also missing after the previous evening's party, because of Topaz and Aquamarine.

  • Combat Haircomb: Aquamarine's bow lends to her looking like an innocent lost child, though her actual demeanor is far less cute. When she whips the ribbon off her head, it turns into a wand that projects a Tractor Beam.

  • Continuity Nod: Steven sings "Hey, Mr. Postman" again while waiting for a package.

  • Steven asks Sour Cream if he'd checked for Onion in the place where he met his friends in "Onion Gang" or Onion's hidden room from "Onion Friend" (which Sour Cream calls Onion's "office").

  • Barb came into the Big Donut to deliver Sadie's lunch.

  • Barb is initially not worried about Sadie's disappearance because she figures Sadie and Lars are on another "Island Adventure".

  • Compound Title: With the following episode, "I Am My Mom".

  • Cross-Referenced Titles: With the following episode, "I Am My Mom".

  • Deliberately Cute Child: Aquamarine isn't actually a child, but takes advantage of looking like one. Due to being small and having Puppy-Dog Eyes, she can pass among people innocently. This allows her to find out the humans' names without much suspicion.

  • Face on a Milk Carton: Sour Cream passes out "missing" fliers for Onion, who disappeared after the events of "Doug Out". They're repurposed "WANTED" posters.

  • Facial Composite Failure: Steven gives a description of Aquamarine that Garnet, Amethyst, Pearl, and Connie each use to make a sketch. Connie makes a very anime-style drawing that's so outside of the show's (and especially Aquamarine's) artstyle that the clothes and teardrop gem are the only clear resemblance. Amethyst drew what looks like a dog (with wings and a teardrop gem). Pearl drew an adult-sized crying angel wearing ballerina shoes. Garnet drew a self-portrait.Connie: I think I made one eye bigger than the other. Amethyst: I was going for a feeling. Pearl: Honestly, I can't even draw a circle. Steven: OK, Garnet, you just drew yourself. Garnet: Uh, I like me.

  • Failed a Spot Check: Aquamarine and Topaz fail to realize the significance of a human summoning a pink shield out of thin air. Connie's sword can be explained, but not the shield.

  • Freeze-Frame Bonus: As the Topaz fusion splits apart, you can see the package Jamie was delivering drop and Lars' panicked crying.

  • Fusion Dance: Weaponized by Topaz, who is actually two-in-one who Fuse over their intended targets to seal them within her body.

  • Hypocritical Humor: Pearl indulges into a little Self-Deprecation pretending not being able to draw when she produces the best drawing of the four (albeit not a very accurate one):Pearl: Honestly, I can't even draw a circle.

  • Impairment Shot: Steven, after getting Blown Across the Room by Aquamarine, tries desperately to stay conscious before finally passing out.

  • Knight of Cerebus: Aquamarine and Topaz take things in a different direction once they appear.

  • Noodle Incident: "I know from experience that the Big Donut does not accept magic beans as currency."

  • No-Sell: Rose's sword doesn't poof the Topazes while they're Fusing.

  • Oh, Crap!: Connie, when she realizes that her sword does nothing to defend her from the Topazes.

  • Orphaned Punchline: Amethyst drinks a can of beans because "they're good for the heart", part of the playground saying where the other half is "the more you eat, the more you fart".

  • Questioning Title?: This episode is one of the few to feature punctuation, with a question mark at the end of "dad".

  • Shout-Out: A Creepy Child with a British accent repeatedly asks "Are you my dad?" while ignoring all other inquiries from others? Sounds similar to "Are you my mummy?"

  • Silent Partner: The Topazes (and their fusion) say nothing at all, while Aquamarine does all the talking.

  • Title Drop: Aquamarine asks Steven "Are you my dad?", then leaves when he says no.

  • Tractor Beam: Aquamarine has a wand which can fire an immobilizing beam, similar to Syndrome's zero-point energy gauntlets in The Incredibles and the one that Peridot used on Pearl in "Catch and Release".
