Hold on tight as everything falls apart. Spencer is finally getting some sleep, and hearts are breaking with one of this season's biggest reveals. Spencer wakes up at Ezra's desk in his empty classroom. The one person to find her in that moment and warn her of the dangerous path she is heading toward is…Ezra himself.  Slipping out of the classroom in her pajamas and slippers before anyone can see her, Spencer still can't figure out how she ended up in that situation. In a frenzy, Spencer calls Hanna and Emily into the bathroom so they can try and figure out exactly how and why Spencer ended up in Ezra's classroom after they left Aria's house.

IN A HECTIC, HIGHLY mobile world, people come and go, filling up boxes and crates with belongings, hauling them around the corner or halfway around the world, then unpacking everything when they get where they're going. The rituals of packing and unpacking, as well as the materials we use for those tasks -- cardboard containers, foam peanuts, plastic garbage bags, sticky tape -- are among the ways we try to maintain the comforting illusion that we're actually in control of all this restless movement.

Remember back when you had to pay for activities like touring the Constellation, seeing the city from the Top of the World Observation Level, listening to a Peabody concert or watching a classic film at the Charles Theatre? Well, that was sooo last month. It's October now, and your money is no good at some 85 venues participating in the second annual Free Fall Baltimore. About 300 events, ranging from a Center Stage production of Arsenic and Old Lace (alas, sold out) to a mock discussion between the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. and Malcolm X, to showings of classic 3-D films at the Charles, are being offered free of charge.

BROOKLINE, Mass.-- This time, he and his wife will drive the 250 miles from their home here to the Democratic National Convention in New York -- just a stopover before a long weekend in the Berkshires.If things had worked out differently four years ago, they'd be sweeping into the convention city with an entourage, a well-honed speech and the giddy, star-spangled hopes of their political party.Of course, if things had worked out differently, notes 1988 Democratic nominee Michael S. Dukakis, "I'd be talking to you in the Rose Garden."

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. - Despite the strong start the Orioles had throughout the season's first seven weeks, they never owned a lead atop the American League East of more than two games. Heading into Friday's game against the co-division leading Rays, the division's five teams were separated by just three games top to bottom. That means the Orioles have picked a poor time for their worse skid of the season - for their starting pitching to fall flat, their bats go cold. Following their 5-0 loss Friday night to the Rays at Tropicana Field, the Orioles fell out of first place for the first time since May 5. It was the first time the Orioles were shut out this season, and it was another fight from behind as starter Wei-Yin Chen allowed all five runs in the first inning.

Are you better off than you were four years ago? That question, first raised by Ronald Reagan in a landmark 1980 debate with Jimmy Carter, is getting a second tour of duty these days courtesy of Mitt Romney and his fellow Republicans. That's not surprising given the GOP's resolve to repeat their feat of three decades ago and take down an incumbent Democratic president during a time of high unemployment. Then and now, the question is not only unfair but imprecise - unless the election was being held to select a deity, no mere mortal has total control over the U.S. economy, let alone the geopolitics and macroeconomics that shape it. But it's also a question that President Barack Obama and the Democrats ought to welcome.

Tonight started with a shower scene and a CHEST! 4,582 -- yep, that's about where I lost count of the times ABC blessed us with close-ups of our Bachelor Sean Lowe's bare, shirtless, glowing, absolutely amazing chest. I'm sorry, where was I? Had I played a drinking game tonight while watching, this recap would've been a bit more ... colorful.  Doing a shot for each time Sean bared his beautiful pecks for the camera (and another shot for each time the camera showed Sean's hand on one of the ladies' knees)

Update: Since this article went to press, the Orioles agreed to terms with shortstop J.J. Hardy on a three-year contra ct.   An Orioles season of some promise has taken a depressing turn that makes the prospects for breaking a 13-year run of losing seasons look pretty bleak. The uplifting finish to the 2010 season has faded into a seeming aberration, as the team, having hung around .500 into early June, collapsed into a pre-All-Star break free fall during which it managed to win a feeble six of 27 games.
