I thought that was a stupid decision. That girl (don't remember her name either) must have been talking up a storm although they didn't show it.
I'm rooting for her too and I'm glad she's starting to open up more.
I don't know if it's editing or she really took a blow from Crazy-Abi's antics and then the clue being left out. She really didn't know what to do/think when that happened.
It looked to me like she was going for Dawson's throat in that play.
