At the start of the display, Spencer’s older sister Melissa (Torrey DeVitto) will get again at the side of — and ultimately marries — Ian Thomas (Ryan Merriman). Alternatively, ahead of they reunite, we be told that Spencer and Ian had a fling in the back of Melissa’s again the primary time they had been in combination. Now not to point out, he additionally had a fling with Alison ahead of she disappeared (and when she was once simply 15). Gross. Melissa wasn’t the easiest individual, however no person merits to be regularly disrespected like that.
Aside from being a cheater and liar, Ian additionally had a violent streak. He went as far as to try to kill Spencer when he idea she had knowledge that will reveal his and Alison’s “courting,” although fortunately, he were given his comeuppance ahead of he may motive any everlasting harm. Later within the collection, we additionally realized that Ian was once a part of the N.A.T. Membership when he was once in highschool. What is flawed with being desirous about extracurriculars, you ask? The membership name stood for Nos Animadverto Totus, meaning “we see all” — becoming for a membership that actually filmed underage women via their bed room home windows.
Melissa and Ian had been a terrible couple no longer best as a result of Ian was once an terrible spouse, but in addition as a result of their courting was once stuffed with deceit, and it felt like Melissa frequently did not notice how dangerous Ian was once deep down. She for sure deserved higher.
