4Birds of a Feather
26 Jun 2012Description ▼
Open with the girls sitting at the Grille and discussing Jenna. They talk about a "new A list," and cross off Lucas and Melissa. We see Jason yell at Veronica for defending Garrett. He walks outside and the girls see he's offering a $50,000 reward for "information leading to the recovery of Alison DiLaurentis' remains. At that moment they get a text from A: "Imagine what I could with fifty grand."
Veronica tells Spencer the person who took Alison's body will be guilty of a felony, as well as a strong suspect in her murder.
Aria is concerned her dad is acting like somebody who has a date. She tells Hanna that her mother doesn't know Byron might be with Meredith.
When Ella tells Aria she's got another free weekend, her daughter sounds concerned.
Hanna is told by a nurse that Mona has lost her visitations privileges.
Maya's cousin Nate drops by to see her at work. He's moved to Rosewood and wants to talk.
Hanna tells Caleb about Mona "freaking out" after a male visitor. She thinks it was Lucas, but he tells her about threatening her and Mona's table flipping. He thinks he's protecting her, but she wants him to stay out of it. He walks out in a huff.
Aria tells Hanna that she should probably tell Caleb about A. Aria is searching online dating sites for somebody Ella might like. Ashley walks in and they show her the site. Hanna looks surprised when her mother suggests a better site.
Spencer wonders if maybe Jason should drop his reward and let the police handle it. He thinks he'll be able to tell when somebody's lying. Jason thinks Veronica "has an agenda that has nothing to do with criminal defense."
Aria puts together an online profile for Ella at one of the sites. They name her page "Hot Mamma."
Emily meets with Nate, who is a new college student. He thinks if Maya's parents hadn't threatened to send her back to the camp she might still be alive. He gives her a present that Maya wasn't able to send. It's a t-shirt with a movie poster from the film they saw on their first date.
Hanna watches as a Wilden shows Wren a court order saying he is allowed to see Mona.
Nate and Emily tell Maya stories. He says that Maya told him Emily was her first real love. Emily asks for Maya's parents' address so she can send them a thank-you. He leaves for class and she notices he's left a book behind.
Wren tells Hanna the man is asking Mona about Alison's remains. She wants him to let her in to asks one question, but he's worried about getting in trouble.
The girls talk about Wilden talking to Mona and what Mona might possibly know. Spencer is going to go to Philly and find out more information about Melissa and her baby.
Ashley and Ella run into each other at the coffee shop. Ashley references the dating service website, which is a complete surprise to Ella.
The girls are waiting to search Melissa's place.
Ashley talks Ella into keeping her profile on the site. They talk about adjusting to life as a single woman. During the conversation Ashley gets a notice from her dating profile about a possible date.
Before waiting for Spencer to confirm Melissa has arrived to meet her at a movie, the girls go into Melissa's apartment looking for medical records. Spencer gets a text from Spencer that she forgot her wallet. Spencer sends a text that Melissa is on her way back, but they miss the message. They spot Melissa outside on the street and quickly try to put everything back. Melissa comes inside to grab her wallet just moments after the girls put everything back in place. She notices a book on the table that Emily had taken off a shelf. She leaves, appearing not to have noticed anything. In a garment bag they find what looks like a feather.
The girls show Spencer that the feather matches the black swan dress. They are starting to think Melissa is A. The plan is to pick Emily up from work later and head to Philly.
Spencer confronts Melissa about being the black swan and not losing the baby when she said she did. She said she lost the baby the night she found Ian's body. Losing the baby and Ian was "too much," she said, which is why she lied. Spencer asks her why she was at the masquerade ball just as Veronica walks into the room.
Hanna gets a text from A that says "I'm everywhere, Hanna." It includes a picture from a car accident, with the back of someone wearing a "Montecito EMT" jacket.
Melissa tells her mother and sister that she received the dress, along with a note that if she didn't wear it she'd be exposed as lying about her baby. The note told her to distract Jenna. After that she never got anymore notes. Veronica tells Spencer that Garrett knows Melissa was faking her pregnancy.

She tells Spencer not to tell anybody.
Caleb tells Hanna his mother was in a car accident. She told Caleb she thought somebody was trying to run her off the road. She decides not to tell him about A.

Spencer texts Aria that they should abort their plan. Ella drops by to talk with Aria about the dating profile. Ella tells her she knows about Byron seeing Meredith again and doesn't have a problem with it. She says she wants to leave the profile up.
Emily gives Nate back his book. He says he forgot Maya's parents' address in his car and offers to mail her letter for her. He's think about transferring to a different school. He's tired of hearing so much about Maya's death. They both say the other needs to try and move on.
5That Girl Is Poison
10 Jul 2012Description ▼
Open with the girls talking about Hanna being a mess. The girls are all freaking out because of the possible ways they could be arrested. A police car and ambulance pull up to Garrett's place and take his mother out on a stretcher. Aria spots somebody in a hoodie watching from the shadows.
Aria seems to be worried about Ezra's money situation, but he assures her he's fine. She sees Lucas pounding on a door asking about "my stuff."
Emily asks Paige if she wants to go the movies. Paige doesn't seem sure of where Emily's coming from, since she thought Emily had been avoiding her. They comment on the now openly-sighted Jenna.
Hanna tells Ashley that Caleb won't return her texts. She wants Hanna to help her sort clothes for a church rummage sale the following night. Hanna pretends to leave for school, but is staying home.
Lucas was pounding to get into a photography studio and the girl wonder if perhaps he took the photos at the graveyard. Spencer tells Emily that Garrett is being released to see his mother. Jenna walks over and hands them invites for her birthday party. Jenna tells them she feels safer when she's in control of her life.
Emily's boss is making her work Jenna's birthday party. She walks over to where Jenna is speaking with photographer Laurel, who will be shooting her party. Emily overhears Laurel say she had a "thief" working for her. An angry Nate stops by complaining to Emily about Garrett being let out.
Spencer advises Aria not to baby Ezra too much. Ezra texts with word that he's been invited to Jenna's party. Spencer wants to find out when Garrett is visiting the hospital so she can be there.
Emily has to cancel the movie date with Paige, but they'll see each other at the party. There is a lot of tension between the two. Paige spots Emily's flask. She assures Paige "I'm done with that."
Jenna starts flirting with Nate.
Emily tells the girls about Laurel shooting the party and Lucas. They speculate whether Lucas was the one who dug Alison up and whether there are ulterior motives for Jenna's party.
Hanna begs Ashley to let her leave the rummage sale. No dice. Ashley runs into a man named Ted who is the volunteer coordinator. They appear to hit it off.
Ezra is surprised Aria is interested in stopping by Jenna's party. He gives her an antique camera as a gift.
Spencer is spying on Garrett at the hospital, while giving Emily updates over the phone. Strangely Garrett writes a card for his flowers, despite the fact his mother is in a coma. Spencer runs into Wilden, who doesn't buy her bogus story for being there.
While Paige and Emily talk, they see Nate walk in the door.
Hanna is alarmed by something she spots in the clothes pile. She stuffs what appears to be a jacket into her bag. Ted sees this and Hanna asks where the last bag came from. He doesn't know. She calls Spencer and tells them she just found a jacket from that night.
Nate tells Emily about meeting Jenna the other night. We see Paige appears to be adding booze from Emily's flask to her drink. Ezra and Aria arrive. Aria asks Laurel about the vintage camera. Laurel says if the camera works it was expensive. She also brings up the possibility of being Laurel's new assistant and hears that Lucas' camera bag is still there.
Paige appears to be jealous of Emily talking to Nate. Aria pours water on Laurel's equipment.
Toby drops by Spencer's place. He has no plans to attend Jenna's party and she asks him to stay. She wonders how nobody else knew Jenna was faking for so long. Jenna told their parents she was scared her sight might not return, so she didn't tell them when she started seeing shadows.
Ezra wants to leave, but Aria talks him into waiting a little bit longer. A drunken Paige starts embarrassing herself, eventually falling over and hitting her head.
Emily and Nate take Paige to the hospital. Hanna meets her there and shows her the jacket. Emily thinks A is responsible for it getting to the rummage sale and thinks maybe she saw more than just Jenna that night. Hanna leaves the hospital. Emily sees Wilden leave and immediately sends a text.
Ezra is getting angry that Aria keeps ditching him at the party. This leads to a discussion of money and he tells her he got a new job. Laurel spots her wet equipment and Aria offers to run to the studio and bring her back dry memory cards.
Inside the studio Aria finds Lucas' equipment. While she looks through it we see a shadow. She pulls out some film and leaves. Outside she runs into Lucas who says "I need to get inside." He initially won't let her pass, but Ezra pulls up and Lucas sprints off.
Nate asks Emily about her relationship with Paige. Spencer drops by and wants to go upstairs. Nate goes after Garrett but is held back by police. During the commotion Spencer jumps into the elevator.
Paige comes out with a few stitches. She doesn't remember anything, but it turns out alcohol wasn't her problem. A tox screen found traces of a sleeping pill in her system. She gives a concerned-looking Emily back the flask.
Spencer goes into Garrett mother's room and reads the card. It seems pretty straight-forward. But underneath her hospital bracelet Spencer find a note reading: "April Rose has the proof."
Aria calls Emily and looks at the negatives. Emily looks up the drug from her flask and finds it's a sedative used to subdue aggressive patients and inmates. One of the side effects is memory loss and Emily realizes she was drugged that night. Aria finds three of the pills in Lucas' camera bag.
6The Remains of the 'A'
17 Jul 2012Description ▼
Spencer and Hanna formulate a plan to swap the note for a fake, leading whomever to the Rosewood church at night when it will be deserted. Spencer is expecting to see Lucas.Hanna goes in to Mrs. Reynolds' room and puts the note under her medical bracelet. She starts twitching, Hanna runs.
Aria gets texts about what's going down at the hospital. She debates bailing on her first day of work, but Ezra points out they need the cash. Ezra tries to boost his confidence by encouraging her to take pictures of him.
Spencer Googles April Rose, PA. Toby distracts her by making out with her. They're interrupted by her dad coming home. Veronica got called in to work on a "time sensitive issue" -- Garrett's case. The physical evidence they have against Garrett can't be retested because there isn't enough or it's tainted. Her mom is pushing to get it thrown out. Spencer leaves.
Hanna gives Emily the pick-up location of the bag that had the jacket in it: Riverside and State Street.
Spencer waits for Jason, offering that she has a way to help the case. She mentions April Rose. Spencer's dad pulls up down the street and spies on her.
At the rummage sale, Ted asks Hanna if her mom is coming. He expects to see her at the party tonight. It's a thank you party for the volunteers, thrown by the council in the church rec room.Hanna realizes this messes up their A trap.
Spencer asks Jason if April Rose might have been one of the NAT girls they filmed. Or she was an "employee," he thinks Ian and Garrett were paying girls to set up their friends. Jason thinks Ian had help with the filming, and might have been doing it for someone else.
At home, Aria runs out of socks and looks in Ezra's drawer. She finds a plastic bag filled with wads of rubber banded $50s and $100s. She leaves.
Spencer is resolved to get to April before A does, she's could be the only thing to keep Garrett in jail. They wonder if Maya found the tapes in Aly's stuff and if they're what Garrett was after all along.They try to figure out the Garrrett/A dynamic, who's in charge.
Aria meets up and Hanna tells her the new plan: she and Emily will hide at the rec center and just see who comes.
Aria asks how much reward Jason offered: $50,000 cash. Spencer thinks anyone with that much cash on hand must be a criminal.
Peter confronts Jason, asking him to leave Spencer out of things. Peter says Veronica didn't take the case to spite Jason. Jason thinks she took it because she hates Peter.
Ashley arrives at the rummage sale to pick up Hanna, but she's really interested in saying hi to Ted. Ashley and Ted are going to the party as a date.
Hanna says they can't ride together because Toby's giving her a ride to get some "do gooder creep" to leave her alone.
Emily checks out the clothes drop box. She notices a diner across the way.
Hanna asks Spencer if Toby can take her. Spencer is getting overwhelmed by the whole thing, but Hanna assures her they stopped Mona and they can stop this person.
Emily gets coffee at the diner. She gets a text to meet at the dance.
She notices the maze placemat and flashes back to seeing it another time, when the waitress was telling someone she didn't look too good and had better go home before she passed out. She was with someone with an eyeball symbol tattooed inside their left wrist and holding their hand. We don't see who.
Jason comes to Spencer's: he found April Rose. It's an antique shop.
Toby takes Hanna to the dance. Ted thinks they're dating. Awkward.
Hanna hides when Wilden walks into the dance.
At April Rose Antiques, Jason asks the owner if he was asked to hold anything. Spencer recognizes a charm anklet.
She remembers seeing it on Aly, who said it was from "just a friend."
One night, Spencer had plans with Aly and she bailed to go get fake IDs. She was wearing the anklet, like always.
The owner doesn't recognize it and says it must be new to the shop and he can't sell it because it has no tags. Jason gives him $400 for it.
Toby asks Hanna to dance and she reluctantly agrees.
Ted tells Ashley about mountain climbing and offers to take her. She suggests Sunday, but he's busy every Sunday -- which is how she learns he's an associate pastor. She suddenly regrets her low cut dress.
Toby can tell Hanna is distracted and asks why he's there. Ashley comes to talk to her.
Toby leaves Spencer a message telling her he needs to know why she and Hanna lied to him.
Ashley is mortified, but Hanna didn't know he was a pastor either.
Emily arrives. Holden says hi and offers Emily a cupcake. He has an eyeball tattoo inside his wrist. Except it's not a tattoo -- it's a stamp for a rotating party. He mentions he used to see Maya at them.
Ashley tries again with Ted. She asks him to dance, but Wilden interrupts, sort of being vaguely menacing. Ashley gets psyched out and makes an excuse to leave.
Spencer listens to Toby's voice mail.Jason takes the charm anklet to the police station, saying he got an anonymous tip.
Spencer asks to see the letters that helped him figure out they were related.
Emily tells Hanna about her conversation with Holden, who she thinks knows something about that night.
Hanna goes into the church rectory to wait for A. She hides in a pew when she hears someone coming. Wilden finds her crouching there. He has the note from the hospital. She denies knowing about it.
"Why are you helping him?" he asks."All that fuss you girls made pointing the finger at Ian, was that all for Garrett's sake? I don't get it, why are you in his corner?" he asks.
He continues to be vaguely menacing, saying she causes problems.
Aria comes home and tells Ezra she had a terrible first day because she was distracted by what she found in his sock drawer.
He tells her he sold a '67 Jag his grandfather left him. He got paid in cash so the buyer wouldn't have to pay taxes.He was embarrassed about how broke he is. She seems to recover and snuggles with him on the couch. We're not sure he's telling the truth.
In the morning, Peter asks Spencer about the anklet. The police have been looking for it for two years, but had kept it out of the press. He knows she and Jason found it.
It had two kinds of blood on it: Aly's and not Garrett's. The judge threw out the case.
She runs back upstairs and cries. She takes out her phone to make a call, but gets a text from A instead: "Hey Spence, I have one more surprise for you. Garrett isn't their killer."
Someone wearing all black and black gloves reads the news about the case being dismissed. They go through the classified ads a circle one about a room for rent.

Based on his mother's jewelry, Aria is curious if his family has money.

Aria and Spencer look through the files. They find the name Bart Comstock in the prosecution witness list. It seems Veronica is planning to attack this person's credibility.
Paige said that at about 11pm that night Emily was sitting on her steps. Pagie took her into her house, thinking she was drunk, and the two fooled around. Paige came back with a glass of water and Emily was gone.

We see video of Emily from Maya's site. There are hundreds of videos, seemingly in no discernable order. They wonder why Maya send them to the site. They decide they need to watch the rest of the videos with Emily.

Aria guesses that his mother offered him money to break up with him, then tells him she made a similar offer to her. But the conversation with Wes was about a car he'd sold a few months back when he needed cash. The car had been left to him by his grandfather, but when he disowned his inheritance it went to Wes. Wes let him sell it, but now his mother wants it back and the buyer wants double what he paid Ezra.
Emily tells Hanna she knows something is up and Hanna tells her. Emily isn't thrilled they waited two days to tell her. Hanna gives her the password, but Emily says she wants to look on her own.
Ashley runs into Ted on the street. He suggests they go for coffee sometime and she likes the idea.
Spencer and Aria thinks it's strange they never knew about Cece's existence. They figure Alison would have bragged about her constantly.
Aria and Spencer recognize the location of the party as Noel's cabin. At the door they get stamped. And it is the exact same stamp from Maya's wrist.

Aria drops by Ezra's and says she knows about Maggie. Aria demands the know truth. He got Maggie pregnant when they were in high school. His mother told him she'd "handle it," which meant giving her money on the condition she never speak to Ezra again. Ezra then decided to attend college further from home and change his last name.

Ella stops by the coffee shop and asks Zach if he wants to have a drink. He opens a bottle of wine. She tells him she's been dating other guys and finds it hard to believe he hasn't been dating women.

Wren tries to kiss Hanna, but she rebuffs him.
Emily tells Paige about spending the night with Nate, but doesn't mention the kiss. Paige seems to be giving her a chance to come clean.
The girls watch more footage. At about 1:14 we see Noel and Jenna arrive and go inside. Seconds later Maya leaves and is shot on her way out. Spencer points out that Garrett was arrested a full hour earlier, so it couldn't have been him. None of them killed Maya.

Emily watches a video of Maya telling her that she's been staying at Noel's cabin trying to figure things out. She says she's going to come home. Nate, who is holding a knife, tells Emily he loved Maya. He says he's going to do to Emily what she did to him. He opens the closet to reveal a bound and gagged Paige in the closet. Nate is furious that Emily "played" him, choosing Paige.
The girls arrive at a cabin.
Just before Nate can cut Paige's throat Emily tries to reason with him that too many people know where she is. He says they think she's with a person named Nate who doesn't actually exist. His real name in Linden. He thinks Jenna saw him with Maya and with Emily's parents in town for the trial he's out of time. Nate hears something outside. This allows Emily to escape.

We see Mona talking to somebody off-screen while walking back up to Radley. She says she didn't need to go anywhere since Nate was going to get Garrett out.

She thinks he was the person writing notes to people as A while Jenna is in the hospital. He says it wasn't him and says he wish he knew who was doing it because he'd love to help them. In present day Spencer starts to cry. She tells Emily that she and Toby broke up but she isn't ready to talk about it quite yet. During class Spencer gets a text from Aria saying that Ezra broke up with her and she wants to meet in the park. Spencer tries to storm out of Ella's class without giving much of a reason. In the park Spencer finds Ezra sitting at a park bench. She starts to yell at him for dumping Aria and he has no idea what she's talking about. Spencer completely spills the beans about Maggie and him having a child. At the station Pam mentions the package Emily received. Looking through the notebook Emily notices a photo of Alison with CeCe in Cape May. Ezra shows up at school and confronts Aria about what he's learned from Spencer. He's upset because she is the person he's supposed to trust. Ezra walks away and Aria immediately gets a text from A telling her "Thought you needed a little push." Wilden tells Pam he knows exactly what Emily is going through. He says what Emily experienced will haunt her forever, even in a situation where she acted in self-defense. Aria drops by Spencer's place and tells her she knows she was set up by A. Spencer doesn't think they should blame A for everything and wonders if they might deserve what's happening to them. A furious Aria storms out. Emily asks CeCe who Alison was talking about in the notebook. She doesn't remember, but tells her an interesting story. We get another flashback, this time it's Alison telling CeCe she thinks she might be pregnant. She says if the guy finds out "he's gonna kill me." Aria calls Hanna, who tells her she is following Paige. Hanna tracks Paige to a bar. Spencer tells somebody she wants to meet them, adding that nobody else can know. Emily and Aria talk about the possibility of Alison being pregnant. It's possible the information wouldn't have showed up on her autopsy. They both think she should take the information to the police and Emily offers to go down there. Hanna ends up getting thrown out of the bar, but not before spotting Paige with a woman. She ends up down at the station for underage drinking and runs into Emily. Wilden takes possession of the notebook. They spot a picture indicating that Wilden was also in Cape May. Spencer meets with a private investigator and gives him the 'A key' along with a picture of Toby. Hanna tells Ashley she was at the bar looking for Caleb. She tells she saw Paige with someone else. Ezra tells Aria he's spoken with Maggie and doesn't blame her for not telling him. He's leaving for a few days to meet his son. Aria asks if she can call him and he begins to cry before getting into his car and driving away.
18Dead to Me
05 Feb 2013Description ▼
Open with the girls having coffee. Aria hasn't heard from Ezra since he left. Jason shows up and tells them there will be a re-interment of Alison. She'll be played in a mausoleum and he's arranged time for them to be with her after his mother. The stuff that was buried with her is still missing. Spencer angrily says she has no interest and storms out. Hanna tells Aria she wants to ditch their items from Alison's casket. Aria isn't so sure. Mona reminds Spencer the decathlon is a week away and tells her she's been off her "A game" recently. Mona makes a crack that references Toby. Caleb tells Hanna's the aunt who put him in foster care has left for Australia. He has the chance to stop by her place before it's torn down but isn't interested. Wesley drops by Ezra's and finds Aria there. Ezra told him he could stay there while he's away. He tells her his dorms are being fumigated. The PI reports back to Spencer. He's traced the key to a part of town but needs more money to find an exact address. Emily stops by the station to see Pam. Emily notices Wilden's taken down the picture she noticed last time. Pam pulls a postcard from Paris out of bag and Emily quickly says it's hers. Emily tells Spencer about Wilden's picture being gone. She hands Spence the postcard, which Emily had left in Alison's casket. It was one of 20+ things left, which means A has several chances to come after her. The postcard says in French that Emily should "stop digging." The girl Hanna saw Paige with works at a costume shop and is trying to help them figure out who bought the queen of hearts costume. Hanna asks Aria about Wesley. Hanna has talked Caleb into going to his aunt's house. Emily meets with Dr. Sullivan. She says "not talking isn't working." Emily is having trouble dealing with the fact she killed somebody, even though it was in self defense. Dr. Sullivan suggests hypnotherapy to help her reframe the problem that is controlling her life. Emily's up for it. Spencer goes through mementos of her relationship with Toby. She calls the PI and ask him how much more money he needs. He asks for $500 "in cash." Caleb and Hanna look through the stuff at his aunt's place. He's not happy to be there and is being rude to his uncle. Jason asks Spencer why she's against seeing Alison. She gets in her car and drives off. Caleb's uncle tells Hanna he hasn't hear from Caleb's father and that he wasn't much of a guy. He says Caleb's mother deserved better. He says Caleb's father left because he couldn't handle being a dad. During Emily hypnotherapy she's asked about the night at the lighthouse. When Aria is at Ezra's place the phone rings. Wesley answers and there is a hang-up. Emily says she sees "her." Dr. Sullivan assumes it is Paige but it appears to be Alison. Under hypnosis Emily grabs a shovel and appears to hit Alison. She wakes up and leaves immediately. Hanna and Caleb leave. Caleb's uncle takes her aside and gives him a baby picture of Caleb at six months. He asks her to hang on to the picture until Caleb's ready to see it. A frantic Emily returns home and tries to call Hanna. She stares at the Paris postcard and has a flashback: It's Emily and Alison talking about taking a trip to France. Their fingers tough as they look at the postcard and Alison says they should go away "forever." In present day Pam comes home and Emily tells her mother she's not sure what kind of person she is anymore. The PI tells Spencer the key goes to a unit in a small building on Mayflower Hill. She says the key will allow her to tell whether Toby kept a secret they had together. She is hoping what's behind that door will help her figure out whether Toby really loved her. A man named Kaplan approaches Wesley and threatens to bounce his head off the curb. Wesley hits him first and runs off with Aria. He says Kaplan is his physics teacher's husband. Back at Ezra's place Wesley tells Aria he's had a tough time since Ezra left. Wesley attempted to get himself thrown out of prep school but it didn't work, so he resorted to hitting on one of teachers. He says the reason his mother hates her is because she's "unexpected." Back at Hanna's place Caleb feels like the trip was a waste of time. She shows him the baby picture and says she got him from his uncle. Hanna thinks the picture had been in his wallet and thinks the person holding him in the picture was also his uncle. She thinks his uncle knew him before he was five but he doesn't buy it. Mona stops by to see Dr. Sullivan with a house warming present for her new office. Spencer opens the A key door and finds a complete empty apartment. She begins to weep. Hanna, Emily and Aria arrive at the mausoleum. Jason tells them they shouldn't wait for Spencer but at the last minute she arrives. She tells Jason that Alison was pregnant when she died and the father was Wilden. Jason leaves, followed by the girls who are angry with her. The other girls think something is really wrong with Spencer. Emily hears sprinklers and realizes that in hypnotherapy she was flashing back to the night she was drugged. Emily thinks the woman in the red coat "is the one in charge." Spencer stops at the grave of Marion Cavannaugh. She scratches "TOBY" into the marble.
19What Becomes of the Broken-Hearted
12 Feb 2013Description ▼
Open with the other girls talking about Spencer, who is now ditching school. Spencer has been voted off the decathlon team for missing practice. It seems as if Mona was the driving force. The girls see Spencer arguing with team captain Andrew. On her way out of school Emily puts on her sunglasses. Inside the lenses A has written: "You rat out T, I take down 1 of your 3." Hanna is still looking into Caleb's past, trying to find where his "uncle" Jamie works. Aria plans to have her mother speak with the teacher in charge of decathlon, Horowitz. Fitz' mother calls Aria looking for Wesley. Emily asks CeCe about Wilden but doesn't get anywhere. Andrew drops by Spencer's place. She challenges him to a world quiz-off and if she wins he'll change his vote and put her back on the team. She also introduces a strip component to the quiz game. Hanna stops by Jamie's work and asks him if he's actually Caleb's father. He asks whether Caleb knows and says he's not sure whether he should be in his life. With Spencer and Andrew down to their last few items Emily drops by and freaks him out. Emily is furious that Spencer feels the need to get naked to get back on the team. Emily is furious Spencer won't get over her issues and return to them. Spencer counters that this simply her new personality. Aria comes home to find Wesley moving out. His mother found him at 7am, meaning she called Aria just to try and catch her in a lie. He's going to crash with a friend. CeCe calls Aria saying she needs photography help. Aria agrees and plans to bring Wesley. Caleb isn't happy Hanna is poking around in his life. Emily tells Jason about the picture on Wilden's desk. Jason's left Wilden a message looking for more information. Wren stops by Spencer's place to make sure she's okay. Spencer suggests they go to a film festival in order to get out of the house. He seems thrilled. Caleb and Hanna are supposed to meet Jamie, who doesn't show up. She asks him to wait five more minutes. CeCe asks Aria if something is going on with her and Wesley. Jamie finally arrives and sits with Caleb and Hanna. Emily and Jason pull up at Jason's place and find the porch steps covered with liquor bottles. Emily walks away to grab a trashcan and gets a text from A: "Better tell him to save a couple. He might need it. Aria and Wesley seems to be having a great time with their photography. With CeCe gone they open up a bottle of wine and keep working. Wesley knocks over the bottle onto a rug. Jason and Emily go to his father's apartment looking for the picture. Hanna asks her mother about Ted and wonders if he can give Jamie some work fixing the bell tower. Emily and Jason find the picture, which features Wilden, Alison and CeCe on his boat. This means CeCe was lying. Jason flashes back to the last night Alison was alive. He drunkenly goes outside to drink from the fire hose and thinks he sees CeCe talking with Melissa. Spencer and Wren stop in to a restaurant. She goes in the back and finds the decathlon team practicing. She says she's only there to get a good seat and thanks Mona for sending Wren to her. She makes reference to an anonymous case study Wren has put together on a troubled teen and threatens to make it public. Mona makes reference to Spencer having lost all her friends and she snaps. Spencer jumps across the table and starts choking Mona. Aria and Wesley talk about the wine stain and she figures out he doesn't actually have a place to stay. She invites him to sleep on her couch. CeCe calls and tells Aria her car has been towed, though she appears to be sitting in it. Hanna and Caleb wait while Jamie meets with Ted. Caleb has come around and is happy with what Hanna's done. Ashley walks out and says Ted and Jamie are finalizing numbers. The plan is to celebrate back at their place. On her way out of the church Hanna sticks a five dollar bill with some specific writing in the collection box. Jason and Emily get stuck in the elevator in his father's building. Wesley starts to kiss Aria. They both agree it was a mistake. Jason and Emily manage to force the door open halfway between floors. Jason convinces her she can jump. As soon as Emily is safe the car plummets to the bottom of the building as Emily screams. Jamie thanks Hanna for "not giving up on him." He then pays for the pizza with the exact bill Hanna put in the collection box. Hanna gets an SOS text from Emily. Aria and Spencer also get texts. We see Jason in the hospital with a neck brace. Emily is by his side. Jason is convinced somebody wants him dead and says he doesn't have the picture anymore. Hanna, Spencer and Aria show up at the hospital. Spencer apologizes to Emily. A nurse asks Emily where Jason went and the girls see that his bed is now empty.

Aria makes it clear that she needs her friend, but Spencer doesn't budge. At the costume shop Shauna isn't thrilled that Paige didn't come alone. She tells Paige she can't give out information on past rentals. While Hanna and Paige distract her, Emily is able to get on the computer and send herself past credit card transactions related to the costume. Ezra's mother pays Aria a visit at the coffee shop. She thanks her for anything she might have said to help Wesley and sits down. She tells Aria she was acting in Ezra's best interest, but Aria thinks Ezra should have been involved in the decision.

Lamb" on it. Hanna thinks Emily should talk to Toby's parents. Aria seems to be getting along well with Malcolm. Maggie comes home and is left alone with Aria. She tells Maggie she wasn't the person who told Ezra he had a child. Maggie has a lead on a job the same time Ezra will be busy, leading them to suggest Aria watch Malcolm. Flowers are delivered to Spencer. Attached is a note from A: "Someone close to you will pay for your loose lips." The girls talk in the coffee shop and Emily tells Spencer she's looking for Toby. Mona shows up to get coffee and Spencer brings up the flower arrangement and warns her to leave her friends alone. Mona leaves after making a sinister reference to orchids, the flowers in the arrangement. Aria and Ella talk about Maggie's job request, but Aria doesn't mention her relationship to Ezra or Malcolm. Emily talks to a co-worker of Toby's. Toby told him he had an emergency and asked him to finish the job he was working on. Spencer takes a close look at her flowers and finds that some letters in "Deepest Sympathies" have been highlighted. Ashley appears to be having visions of Wilden. Spencer goes to see Emily and tells her the 'E' and 'N' being highlighted on the arrangement means A is coming after her next. Spencer doesn't want her to go out. Emily won't do that but she does promise to stop looking for Toby. Aria and Hanna wonder if there were signs they missed with Toby. Emily asks Pam about looking into Toby's disappearance. Pam admits she doesn't trust Toby. When Pam steps away from her desk Emily uses her computer. While Aria has her back turned leaving a voicemail and going to the refrigerator, Malcolm falls while jumping on the bed. He has a fairly significant cut on his chin. Emily searches the police database for "E. Lamb." One result is found, but before the picture can finish loading Pam returns briefly. Pam resumes her search just as Emily gets a text from Toby: "Stop looking. I'll meet you." Mona gets a call from someone at the coffee shop, telling them "I'm on my way." Spencer is listening from behind and follows her out the door. Aria brings Malcolm to the hospital. Aria is freaked out but Ezra isn't quite as worried about it. Hanna finds Wilden's car in their garage. She watches the video of the incident from the dashboard camera. Emily arrives at her meeting with Toby. Maggie arrives at the hospital.

Aria finally comes clean to Ella about Malcolm and Maggie. Aria wonders how much things will change between her and Ezra. Ella tells her it's okay if Aria doesn't want to take this dramatic step. It's two hours past Emily's meet time with Toby and nobody is there. She sees a blonde duck into a door. Emily's walks in and it turns out to be Toby's co-worker's workshop.

The wonder if perhaps Wilden is dead and A has his body. Aria thinks Hanna should tell Ashley, but she doesn't think her mother can handle it. Emily returns to her car to find the window has been smashed. There is an envelope with her name on it on her seat. There is a note inside that reads "Toby is no more," along with a funeral program for Toby. Hanna and Aria push Wilden's car into a lake. The car eventually sinks to the bottom. Hanna returns home and Ashley tells her about thinking that she saw Wilden. She drove by the accident and found the car gone. Ashley assumes that since they haven't heard from Wilden she didn't actually hit him as hard as she thought. Aria calls Ezra to check on Malcolm. He's doing fine, but Ezra makes up an excuse why she can't come over. The police are bringing in Spencer, who can't tell them her name and appears to be completely catatonic. The other three girls wonder what the message from A about Toby could mean. Is he dead? Or does he want them to think he's dead. We see Spencer in a bed at some type of psychiatric facility.

Spencer is given medication in preparation for her evaluation. She sees her nurse is a man named E. (Eddie) Lamb. Ashley tells Hanna she wants to cancel a seminar in New York related to a potential promotion. Hanna thinks she should still go and offers to stay with Emily. Emily asks Sullivan about visiting Spencer and is told what Spencer said about Toby. No body has been found in the woods and Sullivan isn't convinced Spencer saw what she thinks she saw. Byron and Ella talk about Aria's request involving Ezra. Byron says he could bring it up to the dean and suggests that if they get him a job he might end things with Aria. Sullivan and Spencer argue over the body she saw in the woods. Spencer asks to see her friends and is told it will only happen after her evaluation. Emily runs into Shauna at the coffee shop and finds out that she swims, something Paige never mentioned. Eddie tells Spencer that the facility had trouble with the old badges and had to change them. Hanna tells Aria she wants her mother to get the job so they at least have the option to leave Wilden and Rosewood. Wilden reported his car as being stolen. Spencer tells Eddie about Toby having his ID badge and brings up Mona. He says there was a problem with the visitor badges related to someone on staff.

He says he likes seeing her and doesn't want her to leave, adding he'd like to try and help keep her in town if there is anything he can do. Mona pays Spencer a visit. Spencer asks why she killed Toby. Mona says if she'd actually killed Toby she wouldn't want to talk to her. Mona tells her Alison told her she was never pregnant. She has Alison's diary on a tablet and says she has answers for questions Spencer "hasn't even thought of." Mona thinks Spencer needs her in order to get all the answers. Ashley says goodbye to Hanna and leaves her at Emily's. As soon as Ashley pulls away Wilden pulls up in his car. Hanna tells him to go away and he asks her to tell him where his car and keys are. He says that's all he wants and if she gives it to him he'll leave them alone. During group Spencer tells the story of falling down in the woods and looking down at her hands. She says she thought if that was the last thing she ever saw she was fine with it: "I'd had enough." She talks about surviving when the "worst thing" happens.

Open with the girls visiting Spencer at the sanitarium. They tell her that a body has been found in the woods, but it is not Toby. Spencer isn't convinced but Hanna is adamant her friend needs to get out of there. Hanna tells Emily she's freaked out about Wilden. Both Emily and Pam are getting frustrated with their messy guest. Pam promises Emily she'll keep her informed when she learns anything new at work. Ari and Ezra have lunch and talk about their future. He doesn't think anything needs to change. Maggie calls and there appears to be another conflict with picking Malcolm up from karate class. Maggie still isn't sure about Aria, but Ezra can't blow off this second interview.

The girls think they need to find a way to prove to Spencer the body isn't Toby and there is discussion of going to the morge and getting a picture. Wren drops by to see Spencer. He tells her the game she's playing is one Mona was "obsessed with." Ella tells Hanna she's having trouble reaching Ashley about a "delicate issue." It has to do with Jamie. The church was removed for repair and replaced with one of significantly lesser value. The difference is about $8,000. Spencer finds notes on the game that appear to have been written by Mona. They point her to a window with a broken lock. At dinner Jamie gives Hanna an angel necklace. He gets a call from Ted and steps away from the table. Spencer tells her mother she's not ready to come home. Veronica tells Spencer the last person she saw cling to a secret as hard as she appears to be was Alison. This leads to a flashback of Alison coming home to the Hastings' with blood on her face after going back to her house at 3am. A tears Alison makes Veronica promise not to say anything. In present day Veronica tells Spencer she told the police about what happened. She asks her daughter "was Toby not the person we thought he was? Jamie comes back to the table and tells them he's been fired because of what happened with the bell. He needs to leave to go sort it out. Hanna, Emily and Aria don their candy striper uniforms to try and sneak into the morgue. Emily and Hanna find the John Doe bodybag and start to unzip. In the hallway Aria hears the elevator. The body has a mask covering the face, but it isn't Toby. Hearing something in the hall they quickly zip the bag back up, but don't put the mask back in place. Spencer mentions to Eddie that Wren told her Mona was obsessed with the game. He seems evasive and she asks if Wren was behind the issues with the passes. Eddie says the minute Wren arrived to see Mona he knew it wasn't for the right reasons. We see that Spencer has not been taking her pills, instead hiding them in a bag underneath her pillow. Caleb tells Hanna his father is "screwed." Hanna seems quiet and Caleb notices. She tells him about the five-dollar bill and the collection box. Aria arrives to pick up Malcolm. She's told that someone named Aria already picked him up. In Malcolm's cubby is a carnival poster with the letter A circled. We see a shot of the carnival. Malcolm is sitting next to someone with a gloved hand. Aria goes to the carnival and runs into Ella. Aria rushes through the crowd looking for him. Wren and Eddie discuss a past problem of some kind. Jamie drops by Hanna's place. Caleb challenges him stealing from the church, saying he's woken up. Jamie wonders if the reason he's forgiven his mother is because she got him a car. Jamie blows up at him about his childhood of foster car. Jamie leaves. Aria calls Emily wondering if she should call the police. Emily tells her to walk to the station and report Malcolm as missing. She's going to meet him there. Aria pops into a tent and finds Malcolm sitting by himself waiting for another show. He tells her that one of her friends named Alison picked him up from karate. Aria sends Emily a text that Malcolm's fine as she walks into the station. Pam is upset that Emily is there, thinking she's there about Spencer. Emily wonders why she's being made to stay late and sees that her mother is holding a file with "Missing Persons" on the side. Spencer follows instructions written on the game and ends up running into a vision of Alison. Alison puts on some music and they start to dance. Spencer tells her she hasn't slept in three days and is looking for something. Alison tells her she's headed in the right direction. Spencer walks into another room and toy rocking horse. Inside are guest passes for n Ali Dee and CeCe Drake. Wren walks in and asks her what she's doing. Aria waits for Ezra. He tells her that she is Malcolm's new hero because he had such a great time. Maggie passed along her thanks but Aria says she doesn't think she can do "this" anymore. With a child in play she doesn't want anybody to get hurt. Aria leaves and Ezra assures her things will look different in the morning. Spencer tells Wren that Mona kept "souvenirs" and calls him out for helping Mona break the rules. He says CeCe called him, desperate to see Mona because she thought she could help Mona. It comes out that Alison had pulled a stunt with got CeCe kicked out of school. Palm returns home. She takes Emily's phone from her and says they've just found another body with no identification. Because of "significant trauma" to the body they can't be sure whether or not the body is Toby's. Caleb tells Hanna he feels stupid for trusting his father. He walks away and Hanna hears the church bell. She then gets a text from A: "Hear that? It's the sound of your mistake. When you want the bell back, gimme a ring!" Caleb walks back into the room and looks at her phone. Hanna tells Aria that A was likely framing Jamie the entire time, perhaps starting with the collection box. Emily storms through the door and tells the girls another body has been found in the woods exactly where Spencer said she found Toby, and her purse was nearby. Spencer stares at two tickets to "Faust" and hears Mona's voice in her head talking about all that's happened since she turned her down. Spencer's voice says "I'm in."

Aria asks if they should talk to Spencer about him, Emily doesn't want to say anything that can possibly upset her and send her back to Radley, and Hanna mentions how the cops sent the body to the state coroner "for a reason" and that there's still "hope." Spencer overhears and walks down the stairs saying how hope "breeds eternal misery." She then adds that "we lost Toby a long time ago, we just didn't know it." The kitchen is filled with elaborate food and tea and after Spencer distinguishes the difference between english muffins and crumpets to Hanna, things get more serious. The girls ask Spenc if she's really okay and Spencer asks Emily to recall the night at the lighthouse and how Emily made a choice, "either him or you." "I wasn't as strong as you were. When i saw Toby in the woods...I just gave up." Emily asks what changed when Spenc came out of the woods. Spencer replies back that she decided she "didn't want to be a victim anymore. " She then explains that her parents are throwing her a coming-home party to assure everybody that she's okay and hands the girls the invitations. She pleads the girls to come for moral support. "Yeah, you know we'd do anything for you" says Aria. "I'm counting on that" says Spencer while looking guilty with her back turned at them. We see a hooded figure in the creepy "A" van on a laptop decrypting a password and transferring some phone numbers to their phone. Mona walks in and the hooded figure exits out of the files and goes back to organizing something related to the Thornhill Landing Strip and The Lodge at Thornhill where Spencer's party is going to take place. Mona grabs Spencer's invitation from the counter, sits down, and tells the person that she likes their plan and that he/she will get their reward on Friday, adding: "those bitches are finally going to get what they deserve." The girls are at school talking about the Malcolm kidnapping incident while looking at Mona through a window. Hanna insists that they show him a picture of Mona, but Spencer doesn't think it was her, adding that "it seems like a bold move for Mona" and "risk being seen like that" is "desparate, like she is trying to get caught." Aria tells them Malcolm is "off limits." The girls run into Shauna, whose school practiced that morning at Rosewood. Her team has a meet coming up. Shauna then turns to Spencer and says "I don't think we've met." Emily introduces them and after the girls walk away Hanna adds that she hates her. "Why?" asks Spencer. "Because she flirts with everyone but me..." Emily then adds "wherever she goes, trouble follows." Ezra is at the school for an interview. He tells Aria he doesn't think it will work out. Aria responds "Oh. I"m sorry" and she walks away leaving Ezra upset. The camera turns to first person view as one of the hooded figures. We see Jenna in Toby's house on the phone talking to someone. "You said you would make it all go away..." and then she starts talking about police evidence and demands to see the person on the other line "today." The hooded figure watches her through the side front door window and sends a text from A asking her to meet at a certain location that night at 9. Jenna gets the text and hangs up on the person. She then peaks out of the window but the hooded figure is gone. Byron is upset that Ezra is trying to get a job at the high school, especially if they're still seeing each other. Aria reassures him that he's not taking the job but Byron tells Aria that Ezra got offered the job "that morning" and was given one day to think it over. Aria is upset. Hanna meets with Ezra about an ad he put up looking for a babysitter. He offers her a test run that night during an appointment. Jenna meets with someone, telling them "I've missed you ". "They'll all be together this Friday" and that "you know what you need to do." We see that it's Shauna, who asks about Jenna's eyes. Jenna responds that she has good days and bad days. She then reassures Jenna she'll always be there for her. Aria meets Ezra on a bench in public. She asks Ezra why he didn't tell her about the job. Ezra didn't want to burden her about the decision. Aria starts crying and tells Ezra that nothing about their relationship "feels right anymore." Ezra wants "to fix" it. She tells him "it shouldn't be this hard." She doesn't think they'll ever get back what they had before Malcolm. Ezra just wants her to be happy. Aria replies that she loves him and thats why she wants him to take the job. Just as Aria leaves, Ezra grabs her hand and says "I love you." They tearfully part ways. It is the time of Jenna's meeting and a hooded figure sits in a booth at a diner. The door opens and it's... Toby! He tells the person that "Hanna got the job." The person in the hood says "I know" and we see that it's Spencer. He's surprised to see her and she says she needed to confirm for herself that he was really alive. She's furious that Toby let her believe he was dead after she asked if he was part of the scheme with Mona. "Mona told me after" says Toby. He watches Spencer breaking down and tells her that everything he's done was to protect her. Toby asks "Does Mona know you're here?" "No" replies Spencer. "She told me that you would be there Friday" and it turns out that Spencer was the hooded figure from the opening scene and that Mona told her Toby would be her reward for "delivering the girls."She tells him how she kidnapped a 7 year old and broke up Ezra and Aria and that is how she earned Mona's trust. Toby is concerned for Spencer's safety and Spenc replies that she stopped worrying about her "a long time ago." Toby says he's been pretending to work with Mona to keep her safe, adding that "what we had was real." He asks her to follow him out of the diner. Hanna is babysitting Malcolm. She insists that they stop watching TV because "it rots your brain." She then plays "Guess Who" with Malcolm, and shows him pictures of different people on her phone. He doesn't recognize any of the people that she thinks might have kidnapped him and claimed that they were Aria's mystery friend "Alison." Hanna lets Malcolm play a game on her phone and she decides to call Emily on the landline and tells her that she "struck out." Emily is out for a jog when Hanna called her. She spots Melissa walking into Toby's house and approaches the house to investigate. She sees Melissa arguing with Jenna while Shauna watches. Jenna reassures her that she understands but Melissa replies that "...those bitches are going to be at the lodge at 9, do you understand?!" Emily watches as Melissa hands Shauna Spencer's party invitation and Emily is shocked. Toby takes Spencer to a motel where he's staying at. He says the only thing he knows about Redcoat is that "she's in charge." Spencer says that she understands why Toby's helping Mona and that she "made the same decision." But she can't get past the fact that he let her hurt for so long and implied that she would have never done that to him. Toby gets emotional and starts crying. Spencer comforts him and they start to kiss. While Hanna sets up dinner for Malcolm, someone sends a text on Hanna's phone and Malcolm yells at from across the room that "Alison's right here! She's in this picture!" Hanna states that she doesn't remember that (picture) on her phone and Malcolm explains that "it just popped up." Its a picture of Alison and Spencer. Hanna argues it couldn't be Alison and was just about to tell him that she was dead when Malcolm stated the he remembers her "pretty hair" and adds that its the girl with the "blue shirt." Hanna is shocked when she realizes that Spencer is "the girl in the blue shirt." Hanna and Emily share their bombshells about Spencer and Melissa with Aria. Aria freaks out that "this is crazier than crazy" and that "Radley is looking better everyday" and that she's ready to check in. Emily tries to reassure her but Aria throws a tantrum and states that Emily should get ready to lose Paige because she'll "be next." They toss around possibilities for why Spencer might have joined Mona. Emily discusses that "there is a way to see if Spencer is still with us..." and starts to discuss the plan. It appears that someone is watching them through the window and Hanna turns on loud music so no one would overhear them. Spencer and Toby have sex. Ezra tells Aria he took the job at Rosewood. Aria asks Ezra to recall what he told her at Ali's funeral. "You were right. There was never a happy ending for us." He tries to reassure her that she graduates in seven months but she argues that they both need to move on. Aria kisses him on the cheek but Ezra grabs her and passionately kisses her on the lips. Aria then walks away sad but determined that she made the right decision. Spencer arrives at school during the swim meet. She spots someone in a red hooded jacket and follows the person into the ladies room. It's Hanna. The girls were testing to see if Spencer knew the identity of Redcoat. "If you don't know who she is, that means your still one of us." They ask her to tell them the truth. She tells them Mona organized the Toby thing in order to break her and put her back together "like her own Humpty Dumpty." She tells them Toby is still alive and that Mona is the only person who knows Redcoat. The girls rejoice upon hearing that Toby's still alive but they still have to deal with the party. Spencer tells them her party is a set-up and that she was the one who sent the picture of her and Ali to Hanna because Mona watches her every move. It seems that for the first time they will be one step ahead of Redcoat. Ezra subs for a class the girls are in and the room if full of tension and awkwardness as the girls all look at Aria. It's the night of the party. The girls are all dressed up and prepare to leave. Someone is watching them through a window and records them leaving. Spencer is with Mona and Toby inside the Lodge. Shes all dressed up and tells Mona the girls are running late. "How late?" Mona asks. Spencer kisses Toby and Mona gets annoyed. Mona warns Spencer that Redcoat is dangerous. Toby tells Mona that he has "the video you asked for" and that the girls won't expect anything. Meanwhile, the girls ditched their dresses, put on more comfortable clothes, and approach the lodge from the outside. They don't seem confident about the plan and Emily states that Spencer trusts Toby and that they don't really have a choice. Mona is on the phone with Redcoat, who apparently is in a small plane. Mona tells the person "its all according to plan" and that it is safe for them to land. "Its finally about to end. You're getting what you've always wanted." Mona turns to Spencer and tells her that Redcoat doesn't know (that the girls) aren't here yet. Just when Mona says this, we see the girls sneak into the 2nd story of the lodge. Mona commands that "we go for a walk." I'll take it from here." says Toby. Spencer acts shocked and Mona tells Spencer that "it sucks to be lied to." Toby acts cruel and drags Spencer out of the lodge. The girls watch from upstairs. Mona tells Toby to take Spencer outside. Toby jerks Spencer up and she looks stunned: "You lied to me!" Outside we see Toby and Spencer's act is still part of the plan. "If something goes wrong, you know what you need to do" says Toby. Someone locks the lodge door from the outside. Mona puts on her hooded sweatshirt and finds herself face-to-face with the other three girls. Mona tells them they're making a "terrible mistake." She yells that the girls have no idea what is going on but Aria adds that they "know enough." Just as the plane approaches the landing strip, so does Spencer and Toby. From a distance, we see a someone carrying a flashlight. Toby rushes off to find out who the mystery person is and tells Spencer to get to the plane. The plan is for her to see Redcoat but not to be seen herself. Somebody lights up one of Spencer's invitations and throws it on a trail of gasoline leading to the lodge that ignites the house with Mona, Emily, Hanna and Aria still inside. The girls can't seem to get a cell phone signal and Aria yells at Mona about how she doesn't have a signal when they saw her call Redcoat earlier. "Its her, don't you get it?! She can do anything! She's everywhere and she's nowhere." screams Mona. Smoke begins to fill the house. Mona yells that they're all going to die and says now she'll never find out who Redcoat is.The girls are devastated and appalled by this because they thought Mona knew. Spencer sees Redcoat getting off the plane. "Ali?" whispers Spencer when she tries to make out the girl's face. She follows her through the woods. Toby is still following the unknown person with the flashlight. As he gets closer, we can see that it's a brunette with long hair. Just as she turns around, someone sneaks up from behind Toby and knocks him out before he can see her face. A lighter is thrown next to Toby's unconscious body. The three girls wake up woozily outside the burning building. Hanna wakes up and briefly seems to see Alison in the red coat. Mona walks over and says Alison pulled them all out of the building. "She was here, I swear it." Hanna adds that she saw her too. Spencer arrives and confirms she saw Alison as well. "Ali is Redcoat!" says Spencer. Toby wakes up and sees the lighter. He picks it up and as he examines it, he sees a compass design on it. He looks around but there is no one in sight. Whether or not it fell out of his pocket when he fell or if someone planted it seems unclear. The girls drive away from the scene and question Mona. "So all of this started when you were in Radley?" asks Spencer. "I made a deal with the Devil" and "she gave me a way out" says Mona. "At first it was fun" but then things got intense and that "she stole you from me." Emily grills Mona about the night Alison's body went missing. Mona states that she was at the cemetery with Redcoat but claims that she didn't drug Emily and doesn't know who did. Redcoat was wearing a mask but Mona thought she looked "just like Alison." Aria then adds maybe it wasn't Ali that the girls saw tonight, but thought it was because of the mask. They come across Wilden's cruiser, with the dashboard video playing inside. As they watch the scene of Hanna's mom hitting Wilden, the scene continues and we see Jenna and Shauna arrive to help Wilden up onto his feet. Spencer mentions the trunk just as all of their phones buzz with a text from A: "You're mine now. Kisses. -A" The four of them open the trunk and gasp.
1A Is for A-l-i-v-e
Open with the girls opening the trunk of Wilden's police care and finding a dead pig. Mona is inside working on the cruiser's laptop. She removes the hard drive and all five of them leave. Back at Hanna's place the girls have a ton of questions for Mona. She says: she didn't get the car out of the lake, Shauna was friends with Jenna before coming to Rosewood and both are afraid of Melissa, while on meds she thought Cece was Alison, Lucas gave Emily the massage, she didn't push Ian off the bell tower and doesn't know who did. The next morning the girls wake up to find Mona has disappeared. None of them remember falling asleep and wonder if they were drugged. Just then Mona walks in with coffee for everybody. Hanna wants the chip, but Mona reminds them Red Coat tried to kill her as well. Later the girls drive by Wilden's car and are stunned to see tons of police presence. A body bag blows over and they see Wilden's body. Toby is lurking in the woods watching investigators sift through the fire. He sees a fireman pick up a charred red coat. Mona brings the girls back to her lair to help answer some question. Some of the girls seem to think Alison is still alive. Mona shows them video of Wilden and another person dressed as the queen of hearts. Mona says the other person was Melissa, but just as we see the person's face the computer is wiped clean remotely. They hear little girls' voices outside and go over to a playground where kids are playing with dolls. One walks over and says the five dolls are named Mona, Spencer, Aria, Hanna and Emily. The girl says the dolls were given to them by Alison. Pam tells Emily and Hanna there are witnesses to Wilden's death. She also says Jessica DiLaurentis has returned to town. Hanna still thinks Alison was the person who pulled them from the fire. Toby and Spencer sift through the rubble looking for the red coat. It's nowhere to be found. They go inside the structure and Spencer hears something. A shadow rushes by them by they don't see what it was. Emily drops by the DiLaurentis home with a gift basket from Pam and talks to Jessica. She ends up carrying in a box of thinks marked "Alison's." Jessica has kept all of her daughter's things. Hanna follows Mona when she moves the RV/lair to a more secure location. The two talk about perhaps being friends again. Aria runs into Ezra at the coffee shop. She's not sure how to treat him. He tells her he's been offered a permanent job at Rosewood. They talk about moving on and she says she's not ready to see other people. Wilden was shot multiple times at the same time the girls were at the lodge and then his body was moved. Spencer is happy to be back with Toby. Toby gets a text from A with a picture of a woman that reads: "Bet you miss her every day." He seems upset but doesn't tell Spencer. At school Emily is worried vice principal Hackett caught Aria staring at Ezra. He seems to be watching her closely. In the hallway Hanna reminds Mona of some of their better times together as friends. They plan to go shopping together. Aria is called to Hackett's office. She imagines the worst, but he just wanted to give her papers for Ella to sign. The scare is enough for Aria to text Ezra that she wants to see other people. Paige has been offered a full scholarship offer to attend Stanford. She wants Emily to join her. Emily says she likes the idea and tells Paige she loves her. Hanna and Mona return from shopping. Mona asks about Caleb and Hanna says she hasn't heard from him. Mona says she knows Hanna is just pretending to be her friend and hands her the drive from the computer. Paige drives home and Jenna is waiting to speak with Emily. She says "if anything happens to me" she wants Emily to tell Toby she never meant to hurt him. Spencer looks out the window and sees Jessica staring at her home. At that moment she gets an email from A. It is Wilden's obituary, along with the message "Closed caskets keep secrets. His is open and exposes yours." All four girls arrive at Wilden's funeral. They wonder if A might have put something in the coffin to get them in trouble. Spencer thinks they'll be busted once it's opened during the ceremony and plan to take a look beforehand. Spencer finds the casket in a back room. As she approaches it her phone rings. Mona is already there, having received the same message from A. They hear a phone ringing inside the casket. The open the lid and find the phone under his body. He has three missed calls, two from "blocked" and one from "Kisses." Spencer calls "Kisses" and Hanna answers. It was Ashley's phone. The girls wonder how A could have gotten Hanna's mother's phone. Jessica walks over to her and asks them to sit next to her during the ceremony. Someone arrives in a veil and sits in the back behind Jenna. We see Toby driving. He looks at a text from A: "I know what happened to ur mom. Bring the lair and u'll know 2." Toby flashes back to a conversation with Alison. They nearly kiss before being interrupted by Toby's mother. She's just woken up at 4pm, looks confused and Toby says he thinks something is wrong with her. Toby is worried but Alison harshly calls his mother lazy. In present day Toby gets out of his car and walks along a dirt road. After the funeral the girls are approached by a state police officer named Holbrook. He's investigating the murders. He wonders why they would come to the funeral of a man who harassed them and says he'll probably have them in for questioning down the road. All five girls get a text from A. It's video of them going through Wilden's cruiser the night he died with a warning that they'll eventually be burned with the truth.
2Turn of the Shoe
We open with the girls talking about who might have been the woman in black. Hanna tells the girls she hasn't heard from her mother, who is supposed to be in New York. Spencer says Melissa is supposed to be in DC for an interview. Alison's name is mentioned. Mona arrives and the four girls get up to leave. She tells them they can search the RV for themselves if they don't trust her. When the five girls arrive they find the RV is gone. Mona swears she hasn't been back since putting the vehicle there but none of the girls are buying it. Mona gets in her car to drive away and is attacked by someone in the back seat. Emily and Aria watch as she is barely able to get away. Mona's attacker tries to run them over. As they dive out of the way Emily hits her shoulder on some rocks. Ashley comes home. She and Hanna talk about Wilden. Hanna tells her she lost her phone and it was returned to their mailbox. Ashley says she must have lost it at the hotel in New York. Spencer gets a rejection letter from the University of Pennsylvania. Hanna tells Aria she thinks her mother was fully expecting to hear her phone had been stolen. The two of them spot Shauna nearby and Hanna marches over to ask why she skipped Wilden's funeral. Shauna says she was at swim practice. Paige continues to push the possibility of going to Stanford with Emily. Paige notices Emily is in pain. When Emily says she might not be able to swim the following day Paige is shocked. Toby drops by to pick up Spencer. She tells him she wants to skip school and hang out. He starts being defensive and ignores his ringing phone. Spencer tells him about Mona being attacked and the RV turning up missing. Toby doesn't seem surprised. After English class Spencer linger to talk to Ezra. She tells him about being rejected by Penn, saying she will be the only person in her family not to attend the school. She hasn't told anyone yet and doesn't know what to do. He offers to help her with her college essays as she looks at other schools. While hunting around for a heating pad for her shoulder Emily finds some medication. She tells Hanna she doesn't have a choice to swim the following day. Hanna finds a pair of her mother's expensive shoes that have been cleaned with a toothbrush. Aria makes arrangement to get private martial lessons with an instructor named Jake. Hanna asks her mother about finding her shoes under the sink and wonders how they got so trashed. Ashley is short with her and doesn't answer the question. Hanna runs into Mrs. DiLaurentis, who is still working on her home. She shows Hanna a parrot named Tippy, which had been owned by Alison's grandmother. When Alison would spend time in Georgia she'd spend tons of time with the bird, which is why it sounds just like her. Ezra thinks Spencer is making a mistake by telling college admissions boards about her time in an mental institution. Spencer thinks she needs to be honest. Aria and Jake have their first lesson. There does appear to be some chemistry between the two. Mrs. DiLaurentis tells Hanna she never saw her daughter's body. She flashes back to a lunch with Alison where she asks to spend time at the shore with the girls. Alison holds her brother until her mother gives her approval. In present day Hanna tells Mrs. DiLaurentis that Alison never invited them. She asks Hanna if she wants Tippy. Aria briefly kisses Jake at the end of their lesson. She leaves in a hurry and spots Mona talks with an police officer in front of the station. She pulls up and tells Mona to get in the car. Aria thinks it was too risky for Mona to be speaking with the police in broad daylight. Mona overheard special investigators saying they think Wilden was at Torch Lake with a woman the night he was killed. The woman was wearing high heels. Toby tells Spencer he was the one who moved the RV, in return for information about his mother. It was a transcript from her doctor from the night she committed suicide. Before the race Emily takes yet another pill. Shauna stops by to tell her she's going for the final Stanford scholarship as well. She leaves and Emily takes yet another pill. Spencer reads the transcript. The doctor says Toby's mother was in a better place, ready to give back love to her son. It doesn't sound like a woman ready to kill herself. Toby thinks the facility is covering something up, but Spencer is worried he shouldn't be trusting A. During her leg of the relay Emily appears to get dizzy. She slams her head on the side of the pool and loses consciousness. Afterwards she is confused about what happened. Aria tells Spencer what Mona told her, but she isn't sure whether or not to believe her. She tells her about kissing Jake. Hanna arrives with Tippy and tells the two girls the bird's back story. They tell Hanna about the high heels and she asks whether it was muddy that night. The bird is repeatedly whistling a song. That night Hanna asks her mother if she was really in New York the entire time. She suggests she might have come back to "have it out" with Wilden. Ashley says she did not kill Wilden. Spencer figures out that Tippy isn't whistling a song. The "notes" are actually tones from a phone number. Jake stops by Aria's place. He asks if she'd like to get coffee some time and she says yes. Emily tells Paige painkillers were the problem and that she hurt her shoulder saving Aria and Mona from A. Spencer calls Tippy's number with Aria and Hanna. Nobody answers. Just to make sure the number is right they go to get Tippy. But the bird is gone. Ashley gets her shoes from the trash and wraps them individually in newspaper and then a larger bag. Someone appears to be watching her from outside.
We open with the girls talking about Wilden and his possible connection to Hanna's mom. Emily's shoulder is still bugging her. Aria and Jake are going out that night and Spencer seems weird about it. Zack tells Ella that he'll be going to Austria for 10 months or so for a cooking school. He asks her to come with him. She says she can't do it because of Aria, but doesn't seem to hate the idea. While looking through Mona's stuff the girls find a mask. Melissa is back in town and tells Spencer she might be getting an internship in San Francisco or London. Melissa tells Spencer it might be best if they both leave town. Caleb tells Hanna he apologized to his father about not believing him. The two had dinner and it seems like things with them might be okay. Caleb assures Hanna that her mother didn't kill Wilden. Ella tells Aria about Austria, saying there was a "split-second" she thought about going. Spencer still can't find the phone number the bird was singing. Toby has been reading the doctor's notes on his mother but hasn't found anything new. Spencer thinks they should check the facts surrounding his mother's suicide. Hanna asks Ashley about the New York trip. She tells her daughter everybody went to a musical. Aria and Jake watch a movie together and talk about the fact it might be nice if they have different interests. Emily talks to her doctor. When he mentions prescribing painkillers, she slips and references having had a bad reaction to Hydrocodone in the past. Hanna drops by Ashley's office to get the house keys. When her mother steps away she spots a card in the trash. It references her not feeling good during the NYC trip and her having missed the musical. Ashley returns and Hanna shows her the note before storming out. Pam tells Emily she got a call from the doctor about Hydrocodone. She's checked her own prescription and noticed there are a bunch missing. After Pam and Emily drive away Aria gets a text from A "Cleaning up Rosewood, one mean mommy at a time. Dig we must." Hanna tells Caleb about her mother lying about the musical. He thinks she should contact an attorney. Hanna goes to the police station. She walks into a conference room and sees a layout of Wilden's murder investigation on a bulletin board. All of her friends and family are features in some form or another. While she's there Melissa stops by and talks with Holbrook. Caleb pays Hanna's father a visit and tells him she needs him right now. Aria and Emily talk about her lying about the meds. Aria notices that there is something underneath the mask. It appears to be a life-like Alison mask. They wonder why she would have modeled for it. Ashley tells Hanna not to tell anyone she wasn't at the musical. Spencer and Toby arrive at Radley. Hanna tells Aria and Emily the mask if from the same mold as the one Mona had on the train. The mask was made by someone named Hector Lime and they know Alison was at his studio at some point. The girls arrive at Hector's studio and show him the mask. He tells them to come inside and locks the door behind them. Toby and Spencer find his mother's room. He recreates what his mother would have had to do in order to jump. He starts to break down and realizes he gave A the RV "for nothing." Hector tells the girls Alison answered an ad he put on the internet looking for certain look. He likes the way Emily looks and offers to trade information for her being a face model. Spencer looks out the window and notices it doesn't seem likely his mother jumped to her death. She thinks A gave him something legit. Toby wants to find Dr. Palmer. Hector says he made Alison a number of masks. Hanna snoops around the studio appears to find something. Hector says Alison asked him to break the mold when he was finished. Tom pulls up next to Caleb and says they need to talk. Outside of Hector's studio Hanna shows Aria and Emily something. Tom says that Ashley was at his house when she was supposed to be at the musical. She asks for money, he said no. When he returned to his office Ashley had disappeared. Tom then says the gun he keeps in his office is missing. Pam has been contacted by Family Services in regards to Emily. Someone called them. They now think a pattern has been noticed and the doctor was contacted. Emily is convinced A called them. Aria tries to talk her mother into going to Austria. She thinks Ella "deserves" it. Ella seems to be changing her tune. After Ella leaves, Jake sits down and asks Aria if she'll miss her mother. Aria seems conflicted. Hanna shows Spencer she found a Melissa mask at Hector's studio. Hanna comes home and hears the shower running. She knocks and tells her mother she's back. Ashley apologizes and we see that she's standing at the sink staring into space. Melissa pops into Spencer's room. She mentions seeing Hanna at the police station and says she was asked to stop by to help with the investigation. The two talk have a frosty conversation about their relationship as sisters. Emily gets a text showing her mother behind bars. Pam pops into her room and says her father is coming home after being contacted by family services.
Open with Wayne returning home to handle the Family Services complaint. Caleb tells Hanna what her father told him about Ashley perhaps taking Tom's gun. She doesn't want to hear it and asks Caleb to stay out of it. The rest of the girls arrive and Hanna tells Spencer she's convinced Melissa is A. Emily tells everybody about the reason for Wayne's visit. We see Holbrook and a supervisor watching the girls from a car. They're investigating the four of them. The girls ask Aria about Jake. She says he's "fine." And she thinks Ella is going to Austria. Spencer tells Veronica and Melissa she didn't get into Penn for early admission. Melissa her there are things that can be done, and Veronica convinces her to let her sister help. Hanna goes to Ashley's work and finds her with Holbrook and his supervisor, a lieutenant named Tanner. They are looking through Wilden's safety deposit box. Inside is cash, several passports and a handgun with the serial numbers filed off. Ashley tells them nobody's ever been inside the box, but Tanner looks skeptical. Spencer and Emily talk about Melissa. Emily overhears her parents talking about the gossip that's surrounding their daughter. Emily goes to see her doctor. She asks him to make things right with Family Services and he wonders whether she was forced to see him. She tells him to forget it and he lets her know her MRI revealed a slight rotator cuff tear. If she doesn't rest she'll risk further injury and surgery. If she has surgery her future as a swimmer is in jeopardy. Hanna finds Tanner in the park. They start to talk about the case and Tanner asks her about her relationship with Wilden. Caleb walks up and gets her away, telling Hanna she's making a mistake interacting with more savvy law enforcement. Spencer gives Toby the address for the Dr. Palmer who cared for his mother. He's up in New York and Toby heads out the door to find him. Spencer's plan is to confront Melissa with the mask the following night and see where she goes. Emily comes close to asking Paige what will happen if she doesn't go to Stanford. Instead she asks for a kiss. Aria and Jake run into Ezra's son. This leads to her laying out the specifics of her relationship with Ezra, something with shocks Jake somewhat. He's not sure if she's moved past Ezra and wants her to decide if she's ready for something new. Toby find Dr. Palmer sitting on a bench. When he hears who Toby is, he asks him to sit down. Ashley's employers have told her she's no longer allowed in the bank vault. She promises Hanna that what's happening won't impact her. Hanna says she knows she wasn't in New York when Wilden was killed. Dr. Palmer tells Toby about his mother and it seems like he's not convinced she jumped. The doctor tells him there were "forces" which were too much for her. He keeps talking about air and Toby realizes that the doctor has lost touch with reality. But before Toby walks away Dr. Palmer tells Toby that his mother should stay away from "that blonde girl." Spencer and Aria videotape Melissa from outside the house as she opens a suitcase they've left for her and finds the mask. Melissa appears to be working things out heads right for the door. Emily's family has a meeting. They demand more information from her and she lets slip that she saw the doctor again.

She confronts Hector, who says Alison once came to her with someone else. The last time he saw her she jumped in someone else's car. Spencer confronts Melissa, who admits to going to Hector's to get more information. She says Wilden was the one who tried to kill her and that they were afraid of Wilden. Melissa says somebody was pulling Wilden's strings. She sent Jenna and Shauna to follow them the night of the fire, but Wilden set the fire. She's not sure who pulled them out. Melissa clearly thinks Alison is still alive and hints that perhaps she killed Wilden. Emily shows up at the pool where Paige is getting in some evening practices.

Open with Hanna having a nightmare about her mother. Ashley walks in and asks if she wants to talk about it. She declines. Veronica tells Spencer that Melissa has just started her London internship. She's set up Spencer with Brendan McGowan, a college admissions coach, in order to help her get into her second choice. Spencer is upset her mother doesn't appear to have confidence in her. Emily talks to Wayne about how their family is being perceived by the neighbors. He apologizes for them not being able to afford Stanford and she worries that without swimming she'll look "average" to colleges. We hear via Ella that this weekend is a big one for students taking college visits. Hanna tells the girls about her dream and her worry about Ashley guilt. Ella's mother has been acting weird and Aria hopes it doesn't mean A has targeted her. Spencer tells them about Brendan. They talk about the fact with Melissa in London the trail has pretty much cooled. Aria mentions that the number they got from the bird was in York County and Spencer recognizes from her college information that Cicero College is located there. The area code and prefix match the schoo. Ella tells Aria she's changed her mind about going to Europe. She says "I came to my senses," based on a conversation with Aria's brother Mike. After Aria leaves the car bees start pouring out of the vents and begin stinging Ella. Aria calls Emily about the bees, saying her mom is okay but had to be put on anti-inflammatories. She wants her mother out of town. Emily spots Brendan as he waits for Spencer. She tells him about her dilemma with swimming and Stanford. He offers to go through some schools with her.

Veronica doesn't seem interested in asking her if she's guilty. Spencer shows up and invites Emily to stick around. Spencer mentions she wants to visit Cicero the following day as a safety school. He has a connection at the school. Emily says she's also interested in visiting Cicero. Aria asks Mike about talking to their mother about the Europe trip. She thinks he's being selfish; he responds that she probably wants her out of country so she can resume her relationship with Ezra. Hanna tells Ashley she doesn't want to visit colleges that weekend. Ashley gets a call and leaves the room. Hanna picks up a phone and listens in. It's Veronica, telling her she should come to her office the following day. Hanna calls Aria the next morning, worried about her mother and wondering if she should call her father. Ashley's closet is locked, which is unusual. Wayne gives Emily some cash, telling her to enjoy herself that weekend. Aria talks to Byron about Ella, saying her mother needs him to tell her it's okay to go to Europe. She thinks Byron can "release" from feeling like she has to stay in country. Hanna picks the lock on her mother's closet. Brendan brings Spencer and Emily to Cicero. Spencer wants her to distract him long enough so she can investigate the number Alison was calling. Spencer leaves to "freshen up" at the hotel. Inside the closet Hanna finds a gun wrapped in a rag. She calls Spencer, who doesn't let her finish before hanging up. Hanna puts the gun in her bag. Spencer asks a nerdy-looking guy on campus for help with the number. He tells her it's from Greek row, but won't say any more. Ella and Byron have coffee. He tells her Mike understands she needs time away and offers to do what he can to help. Emily admits to Spencer that she's not there just to help her with the number. She actually wants to get into the school. Spencer thinks she's been leading Brendan on and the two begin to argue. Hanna tries to leave the house and is stopped by Ashley. She has the bag with the gun. She says she's going to visit a college. At a party Emily talks to one of the sorority sisters about potential scholarships and a particularly harsh housemother. She later runs into Brendan who seems interested in hanging out with Emily. Spencer shows a picture of Alison to partygoers without luck. Hanna arrives and tells Spencer she needs to talk. She shows Spencer that she has brought the gun with her. Spencer wants her to tell her father, while Hanna is interested in dumping it there. Spencer tells her to wait for her. She goes upstairs and finds a dark, sparse panic-type room. Spencer uses the phone she finds and calls Aria. It is the number they've been searching for. Spencer hangs up with Aria and goes to look for Hanna. We see Hanna grab a glass and leave. Emily spots Hanna and leaves Brendan to look for her. Brendan offers to help and begins to get more flirty. She tells him she's gay and in a relationship. Separately, both Spencer and Emily look for Hanna. We see Hanna in a remote part of the woods digging a hole. Four police offers surround her and she's put into a cruiser. Spencer and Emily get a text from A: "Just a friendly tip. Maybe Hanna and her Mom can share a lawyer."

A is his only chance to find out what happened to his mother. Spencer grabs her phone and calls the sorority. Mike walks downstairs while Aria and Connor are working on his paper. He acts strange and walks out the door without saying where he's going. Emily drops by Hanna's with some pretend homework so they two can talk. Emily reminds her the gun that killed Wilden might not belong to her father. Emily wants the dashcam video because it proves Jenna and Shauna were connected and are suspects of some kind. Emily talks her into letting Emily have it so she can turn it in. On his way out Connor tell Aria he enjoyed spending time with her.

She says she's stressed they haven't heard anything yet and accidentally burns herself on a hot pan. Spencer tells Emily she thinks Alison might have been calling Grunwald, the housemother. Grunwald used to disappear for long stretches and Spencer wonders if she was using the secret room. Spencer wants them to talk to Grunwald together, but Emily is still upset about Toby and the RV. Emily walks away, then hears violin coming from a room. It's Shauna. Mike yells at Aria for hooking up with Connor, something he just heard in the locker room. Aria storms into the locker and confronts him. Connor references Ezra and calls her a slut. Ezra walks in and hears the end of the conversation. Toby goes with Spencer to see Grunwald. In the car he apologizes to her. Aria is now getting nasty texts. Ezra finds her in an empty hallway and asks her what is going on. She yells at him to stay away from her. Spencer and Toby pull into the town. Nobody speaks to them and they see someone watching them through a storefront. They quickly leave. Emily asks Mona what A has on Toby.

Grunwald says she doesn't know Spencer is talking about: "I'm not who you think I am." Mike goes into Aria's room. He says he messed up and tells her he should have known Connor was full of it. Mike promises to make it up to her. Hanna tells Tom she thinks everything that has happened is her fault. When Tom says she should have come to her, she responds that based on the conversation he had with Caleb she wasn't sure he wanted her to. Spencer tells Toby she's convinced Grunwald is lying. Church-like music begins playing through speakers and the town starts walking towards a statue. Everyone stares at the statue blankly. Spencer spots Shauna among the crowd, then sees her get into Jenna's car. Spencer and Spencer get in the car and a dead bird hits their windshield. At the open mic Spencer arrives and tells Aria and Emily about her trip and seeing Shauna. Tanner walks in and asks Emily if she can come down the station "alone." Tanner shows Emily a video of someone in a red hood wearing an Emily msk holding up a "guilty" sign. The video Emily put on her desk appears to have been switched. While Shauna plays violin at the open mic we see somebody smash Connor's car with a baseball bat. He walks out and sees "LIAR" has been spray-painted on the sign. Ashley is placed under arrest. The gun was a match and Ashley's fingerprints were on the bullets. As she's taken away, Ashley tells Tom to look after Hanna.

She tells him about the incident with Connor. Byron leaves to speak with Mike. Spencer tells Hanna she overheard her parents talking about Ashley's case. It sounds like there is a good chance she good do a significant amount of time: 20 years for manslaughter or much worse for first-degree murder. At the flight center the guys use a bribe to get more information about the plane from a guy named Nigel Wright, but don't learn much. As soon as they leave Wright makes a call.

Hanna looks through Alison's room and a person wearing an Alison mask walks behind, just avoiding detection. Spencer and Toby go to see Dr. Palmer. Toby shows him the sheet music and Palmer seems to remember the song. Veronica goes to see Mona. She warns to have an off-the-record conversation. Ezra calls Aria. She doesn't answer. Veronica wants to know why Mona's doing what she's doing. She threatens to put her in prison if she messes with her case. Spencer starts playing the song in an attempt to jog Palmer's memory. She pretends to be Toby's mother and asks about the blonde girl. Palmer is wheeled out and makes reference to a "Ms. DiLaurentis." Spencer tells Emily and Hanna about the Palmer conversation. Emily reminds her that Palmer has dementia so it's tough to tell what he meant. Jessica asks Spencer and Hanna to sleep over. Spencer asks if she knows Palmer. Jessica says neither she nor her daughter were a patient of Palmer's. She then flashes back to an argument with Alison. Jessica had gotten a call that Alison was in Radley, but it turned out to be CeCe wearing Alison's clothes. Jessica's been told by a doctor that Alison's friendship with CeCe is "toxic." Jessica tells the girls that Alison and CeCe used to "wear each other's personalities." Veronica comes home and drops a bomb. Because of an anonymous complaint that Veronica bullied Mona into her confession, she's had to recuse herself from the case. For the moment Hanna's mother has no lawyer. Aria and Jake share dinner after his tournament. This leads to kissing. The furnace repairman tells Jessica she "has a bigger problem." Hanna begins panicking and rushes home to her mother. Wren has a phone conversation with somebody about Veronica and Mona. Jessica and Emily go down to the basement and find that somebody had been living in a corner. Jessica assumes it must have been when the home was empty and the person left when Jason returns. Jessica walks away and Emily notices six holes drilled into the ceiling above the makeshift bedroom.

In present day Spencer walks into the room and Emily wonders if perhaps Alison broke up with Wilden on CeCes behalf. We see an angry CeCe on the phone with someone. A red jacket is on a chair next to her. Hanna arrives at the dance and the mystery guy approaches her for a dance. He says he was the one who gave her the money, doing it because he knows her mother is innocent. His family owns a garage near where Wilden was killed and he saw Ashley leave before the shots. The guy, Travis, saw a woman run off after the gunshots. Travis says he waited because he was worried about getting his father in trouble in case nobody believed him. He panicked and left his truck at the lake, the money was left inside in order to keep him quiet. The rest of the girls arrive with their dates. Emily sees Paige and things get awkward. Hanna wants Travis to speak with the police, but he says that isnt happening. Jake spots Ezra staring at Aria while they dance. Caleb tells Hanna she shouldnt be trusting Travis. Toby is sent an address with the picture of Palmers car that contains an address. Jake tells Ezra he needs to move on from Aria. Spencer tells Toby she told her friends about his mother. Hes furious, thinking that means hell be cut off from the information. He leaves. Spencer asks Caleb to follow Toby. Once again Emily brings up Ezra to Aria. When Aria says she doesnt think she should talk to him Emily spills the beans about Malcolm. Aria leaves and Emily looks up to see somebody in a red hooded coat in the balcony. Hanna goes to see Travis at his garage. She tells him he has to do the right thing. Emily and Spencer spot the red coat and follow the person out of the dance. They steal the hayride truck in order to follow. Aria goes to Ezra and apologizes for not getting back to him. He walks away and tells her to get back to Jake. While the girls attempt to start the truck Emily sees something moving in the hay behind them. They get out and find only the jacket. Caleb tries to stop Toby from breaking into the car. Just then a police approaches with its lights on. The two men run off. Travis tells Tanner hes absolutely sure he heard the gunshots after Ashley ran off. Emily approaches Paige and says she wants to dance. Aria drops by Ezras place. She asks about Malcolm and he says hed rather not drag her into the mess. She says shes not going anywhere. We see CeCe listening outside the door.

We open with the girls at Spencer's house watching a news report about Travis having come forward as a witness in Wilden's murder. The doorbell rings and Spencer brings in a package. It's from A: Four magic 8-balls, each with one of girls names on it. The message reads that "If she goes free, you'll hear from me." We see Travis shown a lineup of women that includes Ashley. His job is to ID the woman he saw leave the scene before Wilden was shot. He turns to the DA and says "I'm not sure I can do this." After class Ezra thanks Aria for stopping by and speaking with him. She emphasizes that it done in friendship. After leaving the class she calls Jake and talks about watching a movie that night. At the police station Ashley tells Caleb how thankful she is that he's in Hanna's life. He responds by complimenting her courage. The DA walks out and tells Ashley the charges against her have been dropped. Paige tells Emily she's worried about A making good on her threat. Emily thinks they're close to ending the "game." Paige asks her to sleep at her place. Toby is ignoring Spencer's calls. Ashley goes out for a date with Ted. After she leaves the girls get yet another package from A. This one is a child's coffin. Inside is a doll that looks exactly like Mona. The girls get a text from A reading "Hanna won so Mona loses. Find her before the cops or they'll think you killed her." The next day police release a sketch of a suspect in Wilden's k murder. It looks like CeCe. Hanna finds out that Mona is no longer at Radley. Spencer drops by Wren's place and finds it empty. She sees something in the window and we see that Shauna is hiding inside. Emily and Paige go looking for Mona at her French club gatherings. The girls tells them Mona was supposed to be there but never showed. One the second floor of the coffee shop Toby tearfully looks through a box of his mother's things and continues to duck Spencer's calls. He walks downstairs and sees Shauna leave behind a piece of paper. It's a delivery information for a package being sent from Wren to Melissa in London. Spencer chews Toby out for disappearing. He says he no longer wants A's "version of the truth." While watching an old movie with Aria, Jake falls asleep. She seems bugged by this. Hanna and Caleb watch Mona's house. He convinces her that she's not to blame for anything that's happened with Mona. Ezra runs into Aria at the coffee shop. He's just attended a poetry reading that Jake wasn't interested in watching. They grab coffees and start to talk. All four of the girls are being comforted by significant other-types, including Aria who kisses Ezra during their talk. The red hood is watching Ezra and Aria. The girls get another A delivery. It's a magic box that initially appears to be empty. Spencer knows the trick and opens it a special way to reveal a saw. On the blade is written "Watch me make a girl disappear." Spencer thinks a magic show must be part of the process. Toby offers to relieve Caleb at Mona's place so he can get some sleep. The girls look online and finds a magic show being performed at a festival in Ravenswood that afternoon. A car leaves Mona's place and Toby follows. It's Shauna. He gives Spencer updates at tos his location. The girls attend the festival. A mime/magician pulls Aria from the crowd to perform a disappearing trick. She is returning safely, but while they were paying attention to the trick Emily has been taken. They call Emily's phone and she tells them she's in a box and can hear a saw. Spencer figures out there is a sawmill nearby. They head in that direction and spot the red coat. At the sawmill they find Emily in a coffin on a conveyer belt that's headed towards a huge saw. It appears there are two red coats. They struggle to free her but a red coat stops the saw at the last second. Aria and Spencer each chase one of the red coats while Hanna helps free Emily. Aria ends up fighting with CeCe at the stop of some steps. She tries to save her when she fall, but CeCe lands hard and looks dead. Spencer and the others return, but while they're comforting Aria CeCe disappears. Spencer tells the girls she thinks she was following Alison and that she led her to a location. Spencer brings them to what seems to be A's lair. The room is filled with information on the girls, as well as several other people in their lives. There is extensive surveillance equipment, which is how A has been able to monitor their every move. Judging by financial records it seems that CeCe was an employee of A. It also seems as if Wren was being followed by A as well. They find a poster for a celebration taking place that night in town. It looks as if A thinks Alison will be there. At the celebration they run into Mrs. Grunwald. She admits to having contact with Alison. She tells the story of pulling an alive Alison out of a grave. She drove her to the hospital but while inside looking for help Alison disappeared. She tells the girls they must leave Ravenswood because "he's hoping you'll lead him to Alison." She says "he's here" and walks away. We see Caleb get on a bus for Ravenswood. He's not A. The girls debate the validity of Grunwald's story. They walk into a store and are followed by a man in a coat and hat. We flash to that same coat standing in A's lair. The person turns around and it is.... Ezra. He angrily slams the open closet door after realizing people have been there.

In the special Halloween episode, the girls crash the Ravenswood Founders Day Celebration after a clue suggests Ali may be alive. Caleb meets a kindred soul (NICOLE GALE ANDERSON).
14Who's in the Box?
07 Jan 2014Description ▼
Open with the girls discussing their many questions about the revelation that Alison is alive. Spencer thinks their goal should be to make sure Alison feels safe to return. They go to the crypt and Hanna thinks they need to figure out who was buried in Alison's grave. ONE WEEK LATER Emily asks Mrs. DiLaurentis about Jason's whereabouts. She says she can reach Jason in an emergency but doesn't say where he is. Emily tells her not to bother. Ashley is having trouble finding work. Toby returns after being gone for a few weeks. He tells Spencer he got a few answers about his mother. Emily and Paige's relationship seems to be strained. Mona thinks Hanna is shutting her out. Hanna says she's not sure what to think. After class Ezra asks Aria to stay and talk. Hanna shows Spencer and Emily she's found a girl named Sara Harvey who went missing near the time Alison did. She is approximately the same size as Alison and the geography makes sense. Suddenly a projector comes on with a message from A: "Ali, Ali, Oxen-free. Whoever finds her, gets to keep her." Ezra apologizes to Aria for the position he put her in with Malcolm. He says he wants her to give him another shot after she graduates. Spencer asks her father about Jason. He tells her to drop it and thinks they're better off the further they get from that family. He agrees to help if she'll stay away from Jessica. Toby shows Spencer some of what he found while looking for info on his mother. He found several who possibly knew she didn't commit suicide. Toby seems is still looking for conclusive evidence. Hanna tells Emily and Aria she messages with one of Harvey's friends, Tina, about having coffee. Emily is concerned about meeting her. Caleb walks in and Hanna runs to him. They embrace. At a table Caleb tells her it was less complicated for him to come to her, as he's trying to keep promises to multiple people. Family issues with Miranda are complicated. Tina and another one of Harvey's friends talks to Emily and Hanna about their missing friend. She sounds a lot like Alison. They mention one member of their friend group, Avery, didn't show. Harvey went missing on the first day of the school that year. Mona runs into Ezra onto the street and refers to the help he's been giving Aria and her friends. Spencer and Toby meet with a rep from Decladine, the company that owns Radley. Spencer threatens that unless they get info on what happened to Toby's mother they will become a PR nightmare for the company by spreading word of Wilden's actions. Hanna comes home and finds that Ashley has been hired by Jessica to work in her real estate office. Ezra sits with Mona and talks to him about secret identities and sin. He responds with some cryptic comments about fear being a primary motivator at Rosewood. Hanna tells Caleb that Jessica told her she talks to Alison in her dreams. He says Ravenswood turned into "more than I thought it would" and he has to go back. Spencer gets Decladine to admit there are problems it needs to clean up at Radley. Toby is overjoyed, but Peter tells him that this admission means they could even further, perhaps getting Radley shut down. Toby likes the idea Aria asks Ezra if they can go someplace private and gets into his car. They go to his friend's somewhat remote cabin. He says he wishes he had a time machine so he could back and change how he acted. He gives her a key to the cabin and says it could be their secret. They start to kiss. One of Harvey's friends, Claire, stops by to see Emily and says that their friend Avery is struggling with mental healthy issues. Claire says she's almost jealous that Emily knows her friend is dead. Not knowing whether Harvey is alive or dead is tearing them apart. She also says she wished Harvey had been dead before she disappeared. Caleb tells Hanna he needs to leave. She tries to keep him from leaving and the noise brings Ashley to the stairs. He says he can't tell her what is happening and leaves. Ashley comes down and consoles her. Spencer asks her father why he's interested in shutting down Radley. He says he's been thinking about it for a while and says it has something to do with her being there. Emily tells Paige that Alison let her kiss her one time. In retrospect she realizes that it meant nothing to Alison. Paige says he hates Alison for being so mean to her and wonders if this is part of the process of Emily saying good-bye. Hanna and Caleb say a more proper good-bye at his car. When she leaves he weeps at the wheel. The girls stands at Alison's grave and realizes they don't know who is in her grave. Hanna pulls out Alison's diary/journal, which she got in Ravenswood. Spencer takes it from her an opens it up.
15Love ShAck, Baby
14 Jan 2014Description ▼
We open with the girls looking at Alison's journal. They ask Hanna why it took her so long to show it to them and they all seem upset. Much of it is written using code names. The plan is to go through the book individually, weed out stories about themselves and see what is left. Alison appears to Emily in a dream. She talks about missing Emily and says she wants to explain. She tells Emily she's not dead and references "they" being after her. She notices the bracelet Emily has on. Emily wakes up and goes to her shelf. She pulls out the bracelet and puts it on. Ashley and Hanna briefly discuss Caleb. Hanna doesn't have much to say about what happened. Toby tells Spencer her father cancelled a meeting. She thinks it's a good thing and is worried there is something they don't know about his motivates. Eventually she goes along with the plan to consult with him. At school Aria puts something in Ezra's desk as Spencer waits. Spencer asks about Ezra and Aria says nothing is going on. Spencer thinks she still loves him. Emily tells Spencer and Aria that the diary is "weird" and has devised a system for organizing which girl the stories are about. Hanna acts strange when Emily is about to pass the book to Aria, instead it goes to Spencer. She tells them about breaking up with Caleb. One of the stories is about a Busy Bee Inn. Aria recalls this now-closed place from her family visiting it occasionally. The plan is to check it out. Ezra has been staring at them throughout this conversation. While at work Emily gets a note from someone that "I want to come home." Aria pops into Ezra's classroom. She says that she's no longer able to keep the meeting she'd mentioned in her note. They agree to hang out the following night. When Aria leaves we see that Ezra appears to be listening to audio of Alison on his laptop. Emily waits in the woods for someone. Spencer overhears her father talking to Mrs. DiLaurentis about her impending divorce. He's giving her legal advice. Hanna runs into Travis at the coffee shop. He tells her that Cece was spotted in Maryland and the currently thinking is she was paid to kill Wilden. Spencer yells at her father for spending time with Jessica. He tells her he cancelled on Toby because he heard from Radley that Toby's mother's death was an accident. She slipped and fell from the roof, but it was covered up to protect a patient who was nearby. Emily leaves. We see she left her bracelet behind. Spencer yells at Jessica to leave her father and her family alone. On the way to the Busy Bee Hanna asks Emily about not being in the coffee shop when she stopped by. Emily lies. Ezra drops by Hanna's place and tells Ashley her daughter is at the risk of failing if she doesn't turn in some work. Ashley work phone rings and she takes the call. She leaves the room and Ezra sneaks upstairs to Hanna's room. In the car Aria figures out she is known as "Suzy Clueless" in the diary. She begins to read more about herself and Hanna grows more and more uncomfortable. With Ashley still on the phone Ezra opens up Hanna's laptop and begin snooping. The girls have car trouble. Hanna calls Travis but it'll take him two hours. Aria suggests a cabin she knows about. Ashley gets off her phone call but Ezra has already come back downstairs. On the way to the cabin Spencer mentions to Hanna that a page was missing from the Aria story in Alison's journal. Hanna denies taking it. We see Ezra in his car as the girls go inside the cabin. Aria has told the girls the cabin belongs to her uncle. Spencer tells the other two girls she thinks Hanna is hiding something from them. Hanna returns from the bathroom and confesses that the story was about her and Aria's little brother Mike. We flash back to Alison having caught Hanna fooling around with Mike. A tearful Hanna begs her not to say anything and Alison agrees. Back in present day Aria isn't as bothered by the revelation as Hanna feared. Hanna then tells them that Caleb met somebody else. We see that somebody is outside the cabin watching the girls. Hanna walks outside to check on Travis and Emily goes with her. While they look for blankets Spencer and Aria are locked in a linen closet. They open the window and yell for Hanna. They hear smashing in the living room and eventually Hanna and Aria open the door. Alison's book is gone. Travis arrives to take them home. At Hanna's place Travis asks her why her friends seemed so freaked out. He gives her the tow for free. When Hanna seems upset he comforts her. Spencer comes home and her father yells at her for talking to Jessica. She pushes back, saying she doesn't understand why he's lying to her mother. Aria calls Ezra. He lies to her about being home all night. She returns to her room and lies to Emily about having been on the phone with Jake. Spencer goes to Toby's place with a suit case. Emily shows Aria the note from Alison. All the girls get a text from A with a picture of the Busy Bee Inn: "Looks Like I'm winning. Thanks for the tip." The girls realize they've given Alison to A and rush out the door.

Open with the girls on their way to the Busy Bee Inn following the text from A. Inside they find signs of a struggle and a broken window. There is a piece of torn clothing on the ground. On the wall A has scratched a message: "You're too late." Emily goes to church to drop something off for her mother. Spencer answers the door at Toby's and finds her father, there to see Toby. She says she won't leave unless he tells her mother what's going on with Jessica DiLaurentis. He tells Spencer that Jason has fallen off the wagon and that's what the two have been discussing. Aria tells Ezra that Hanna hasn't been doing well. He says he's going to Philly to meet a buddy. While they talk a text from Jake pops up on her phone. It gets slightly awkward but she tells him she's going to break things off with Jake. Hanna is going through her closet, throwing away stuff. Spencer asks if she wants to talks about how she's feeling but Hanna declines. Shaun approaches Emily in the church. She says she has a message from Alison. She says Alison wants the girls to stop looking for her. Emily's not buying and wants Shauna to prove she's actually talking to Alison. Peter tells Toby that Radley have offered a family settlement. This means giving up on attempting to shut the facility down. Peter doesn't think they have a good enough case. Toby's father has agreed, but Toby needs to sign off on the deal as well. Aria tells Jake she's back with Ezra. She offers to be friends but he says he'll need time. Spencer points out to Toby that the agreement contains a gag order. He won't be able to publically discuss what happened to his mother. She also isn't sure she buys her father's claim that there isn't a good case and makes he sure he's fully informed before signing. The girls discuss the likelihood of Shauna telling the truth about Alison. They think it's possible Shauna is working on behalf of A and is trying to get them to stop looking for Alison. Travis drops by Hanna's to check in on her. Hanna tells him she's doing great. Shauna is able to confirm for Emily that Alison is alive for relying a private conversation they had. Shauna says Alison wants to meet her that night and Emily is supposed to come alone. While playing pool Travis and Hanna begin to flirt. Emily tells Spencer about Shauna's confirmation. She even checked out her story that she grew up near Alison's grandparents. Spencer doesn't think Emily should go to the meeting alone. Aria comes home and finds a gift from Jake on the table. It's a piece of personalized jewelry from a store in Harrisburg. Spencer asks her father about the settlement. She thinks it's weird for him to back off a case so quickly and he tells her to leave him alone. Jake sees Ezra screaming at a woman in a car. Hanna gives Travis a kiss. He thinks they should give it a little more time, but she moves in and they make out. Ashley comes home and surprises them. She takes Hanna to the next room and asks what is going on. She thinks Hanna is throwing herself at a new guy to get over Caleb. Spencer looks through her father's briefcase. She sees on a paper that Jessica is one of the trustees at Radley. Spencer confronts her father about this fact and asks if that's the reason he's pushing for a settlement. He leaves to pick up her mother and she calls Toby. She tells him not to sign the agreement. Ashley comes into Hanna's room and tells her she wants to take her out. Aria tries to return the gift to Jake. He turns her down, then mentions what he saw with Ezra. Ezra had told Aria he would be in Philly all day. Ashley takes Hanna to a place where you can throw plates against a wall. It seems to help lighten Hanna's mood. Aria mentions to Ezra what she heard from Jake. She asks him if he even went to Philly and he admits his lie. The woman was Maggie's lawyer. She is trying to prevent him from seeing Malcolm. Ezra said he lied because he didn't want to upset her. Ezra assures her that he wasn't violent and apologizes for not being honest. Shauna drops Emily off at the location and suddenly drives away. She walks inside the building and comes face-to-face with Alison. The two weep and embrace each other. Emily wants them to go to the police, but Alison says she isn't sure she can trust the other girls. Alison isn't sure who she's hiding from and wants Emily to help her find A. They hear something in the background and a terrified Alison asks if Emily told anyone. Alison gets scared and runs off. It was Spencer and Emily yells at her for following her. Spencer apologizes but says she thinks Alison is trying to split them apart. Emily is beside herself. Toby is waiting for Emily. He's signed the agreement and thinks it was the best thing for his family. He wants to let it go and tell Spencer that "it's over." He leaves the room and she cries. Hanna calls Caleb and tells him that the past year was the best of her life. During a training session Jake kicks a heavy bag and finds his foot is cut. Somebody had planted shards of glass under a piece of tape.

Open with Aria returning home to find her brother Mike is having a fairly large party. She's upset because she was put in charge and tells him to kick everybody out. Hanna has been reading criminal novels by someone named James Patterson and getting ideas related to A. Spencer is up transcribing page from Alison's journal and calls Hanna for help. Hanna tells Spencer she wasn't invited to the movie with Emily because Emily is so mad at Spencer. Aria and Emily find Mona upstairs in Aria's house. She was invited by Mike and they are suspicious. The next day Aria asks Mike about the "deal" with Mona. They met a counseling group at school. He asks why she can't forgive the messenger if she's forgiven their father. Emily's father Wayne tells her the car had been shut down from a remote location. This freaks out Emily and she no longer wants to drive. Maggie stops by school to see Ezra. She's there to figure out her lease and has left Malcolm back in Seattle. Ezra is pissed. Aria shows up at the end of the conversation and he tells her "people get what they deserve, eventually." While looking at books Holbrook apologizes to Hanna for what happened to her and Ashley during the investigation. He suggests a new book for her to try. Emily tells Hanna about the likelihood that A shut off her car remotely. She's sure they aren't safe anywhere. Hanna wants Emily to bury the hatchet with Spencer, just as Spencer shows up. Emily leaves. Aria asks Mona what she's up to with Mike. Mona references Jesse, the new guidance counselor. She mentions being squeezed out by the "inner circle." Spencer runs into Andrew and realizes she's completely forgotten about a huge test in physics. He says he's been up all night but appears to look great. She asks him to stop by later and share notes. Ezra speaks with Mona alone in his classroom. Hanna bonds with Holbrook over the mystery novels she's reading. Aria meets with Jesse. She references Mike befriending Mona and calls her "bad news" and "the devil." She asks him not to encourage them being together. He wants her to join a group he's running. Ezra sends somebody a text referring to their being a setback with Alison. Wayne stops by to ask him about Emily. He tells Ezra about Emily staying at Alison's place and asks for some help. Ezra offers to give her an extra project. Andrew helps Spencer study. She closes the door and asks him to share his secret for staying up and studying. He has a legit prescription and lets her have a few pills. That night Emily hears something. She grabs scissors and nearly stabs Wayne when he comes through the door. We see there was a handprint outside her window. Spencer reads a story about Alison being at a college pub with her mystery man. They discuss Alison's writing. Alison reaches over and they kiss. Spencer stops by Hanna that night at 4am and tells her the pub from the story will be a key. Aria runs into Maggie and rips her for showing up without her son. She brings up the fact Maggie lied to Ezra about Malcolm and blackmailed his family. Aria ends up shoving Maggie's box and breaks a picture frame. Emily tells Aria not to worry about the incident with Maggie, since she and Ezra are no longer dating. Aria doesn't tell her. Emily tells her she's working on a play with Ezra. Spencer runs into Ezra at the pub. He's eating the exact same pie from Alison's story, though he tells her he's going off a server's recommendation. Aria leaves Ezra a message apologizing about the interaction with Maggie. Hanna appears to leave in the middle of a dentist's appointment. But she is actually in the file room and steals one of the sign-in sheets. The doctor's assistant leaves. Jesse runs into Aria at the coffee shop. She tells him she admits she has some things to work through but doesn't want to join the group. She tells him she's worried about Mike. Hanna returns to the chair and someone comes up from behind her and forces the gas mask over her face. The person then grabs a hypodermic and holds Hanna's lip. The server gives Spencer the beer Ezra had already ordered. This is also what the mystery man ordered in Alison's story. She flashes to the story with Ezra kissing Alison. While working late at school Emily hears noises. She calls out but nobody answers. The door to the classroom closes and some loud music metal music starts coming through the PA. The lights start flashing and she calls her father to come get her. She sees shadows of someone moving in the hallway and a sign flashes "Act normal, bitch." Hanna wakes up on the chair. There is blood on her mouth. She sees her father pull up but can't open the window. Wayne finds the door closed. A shadowy figure tries to get into the classroom. She breaks a window and yells for her father to help her. Wayne climbs up the side of the building, opens the window and gets her out. The person, wearing a dark hood, gets into just after they reach the ground. Suddenly Wayne collapses. An ambulance arrives to take Wayne to the hospital. He tells Emily he's had some tests done and there are issues with his heart. With her father staying in the hospital Emily stays with Aria. Aria has contacted Spencer, who arrives moment later and embraces Emily. Hanna arrives a second later and tells them about A and the dentist. Her jaw hurts and she doesn't know what happened. They look inside her mouth and Spencer pulls out a tiny message. Using a magnifying glass they read A's note: "I told you, dead girls can't smile. Stop looking."

We open with Alison on a public phone with Shauna, who is in the coffee shop watching the girls walk in. The girls talk about Emily's dad, who had anemia-related chest pains. Aria tells the girls she and Ezra haven't spoken in a long time. Hanna is still spooked about the dentist office incident. Spence, who is still taking the pills, spends the entire night researching Ezra and working on Alison's journal. Realizing she hasn't slept all night she texts Andrew looking for more pills. He's out. She calls her doctor. Ezra asks Aria to go away with him for the weekend. She eventually agrees. Holbrook returns some of the evidence that was in police storage to Hanna. He tells her he's busy with CeCe and talks about studying the little things about a person. Emily asks Shauna how Alison is doing. Emily asks her to apologize on her behalf. Hanna tells Aria about interacting with Holbrook. Aria lies about what she's doing that weekend. Aria spots Jesse comforting a crying student. Spencer goes to other students to get pills and is now having to pay for them. Spencer then runs into Ezra and says he's worried about the quality of her work recently. He warns her about consequences of poor work. Aria tells Jesse she thinks she's really just angry with herself and wants to talk. Spencer finds Ezra online under his full last name. Aria talks to Jesse about her various deceptions but leaves without saying much. Ezra sees her leave the office. Hanna and Emily wait outside Spencer's house, waiting to see if she's really at the library like she said. They spot Shauna walking out of the DiLaurantis house. Hanna wants Emily to leave the whole thing alone. Ezra goes into Spencer's file and look at the ADHD notes. Jesse accidentally walks in and the two have a brief conversation. Ezra takes Spencer's file. Shauna drops by Emily's place looking for help. Someone is filming them from the street. In return Emily asks for info about Paige. She'd been spying on Emily and the other girls on Alison's behalf. Shauna saw Emily at Alison's house earlier and says she had been trying get a poster for Alison. Mrs. DiLaurntis doesn't know her daughter is alive. Spencer leaves Aria a voicemail saying she needs to tell her something that is going to break someone's heart. She ends up deleting the message. The first morning in the cabin she tells Ezra she's tired of lying. She wants to go home. He wants them to start thinking of each other as the person they share everything with. Hanna corners Spencer on the street and asks what is going on. Holbrook watches as Spencer pushes her away and leaves. Emily goes to the DiLaurentis house looking for the poster. When Jessica leaves the room she cuts into the back and finds an envelope filled with cash, along with a phone number and several email addresses. She takes it without Jessica noticing. Ezra tells Aria he needs an ingredient for soup. Aria offers to pick it up and borrows his keys. After she leaves we see he was lying to her. He opens a trap door in the floor and walks downstairs to his lair. He has been sent photos of Hanna with Holbrook, as well as virtually everything else the girls have been doing. Emily calls Shauna to tell her she has the money. She's at work and hides the envelope for Shauna in bag of coffee grinds under the table. Shauna gets into her car, looks into the rearview at something in the backseat and screams. Hanna goes to Spencer's room and looks at her internet search history. She sees the connections with Ezra and Ravenswood. Spencer goes to Fitz' apartment building and gets somebody to let her in. Hanna shows up just as she walks through the door. Spencer says she's looking for proof and the two go inside. Spencer is sent pictures of Spencer and Hanna at his place. Spencer and Hanna go inside Ezra's apartment. Spencer spots a hidden camera inside a grate and pretends to give up on the plan. Ezra is watching all of this from his car. Aria wakes up and finds Ezra's not in bed. She walks downstairs and he startles her. They start to talk and he says he's glad she says. Back at her place Spencer tells Hanna and Emily about the camera. She thinks Ezra is A. Emily shows them the envelope from Alison's poster, telling them Shauna never showed up to get it. They think Alison must be out of money and vulnerable. Alison calls Shauna who is just waking up from some kind of drugging and is confused. She looks up and sees she is at the exit sign for Rosewood. The sign tells her not to come back and Shauna quickly hangs up and destroys her cell phone. A panicked Alison looks at her almost empty wallet and sees a picture of her friends. She gets onto a bus.

21She's Come Undone
25 Feb 2014Description ▼
We open with the girls sitting around a table. Aria tells them about Ezra's book and is convinced this proves he's not A. But she's still furious that he used them. Emily points out at the very least he knows about A and did nothing to help them. Aria flashes back to meeting Ezra for the first time. She immediately vomits after the memory. Spencer walks downstairs to find her parents. The plan is to send her to rehab in Philly. Spencer resists and asks for one chance to get off them on her own. Hanna runs into Travis in the hallway.

She starts to search and finds some timelines in one of his drawers. She then finds boxes filled with files containing notes and surveillance photos of the girls. She finds a tape recorder. Hanna tries to convince Holbrook he should cut Travi's dad some slack. He's not having it. Aria reads though Ezra's notes. It becomes overwhelming and she starts throwing papers everywhere and destroying furniture. Spencer opens her locker and finds that A has put some pills in her locker. Emily offers to throw them away, but Spencer says she wants to do it. Hanna shows up and says she can't find Aria.

Hanna leaves her to get some food. Paige and Emily talk about some of the Alison questions. Paige thinks it's a mistake to get in A's way, even if it's to help Alison.

Hanna runs into Holbrook while picking up lunch. The two flirt briefly and she gives him a quick kiss on the lips. She apologizes and leaves. Spencer reads Ezra's notes and learns that Mrs. DiLaurentis witnessed the fight she had with Alison where she was wielding a shovel. Spencer talks to her father about the night of Alison's disappearance and says she doesn't remember everything because she was taking the pills at the time. She wants to know if he hired the PI to follow her. Before he can answer there is a knock on the door. It's Toby. Spencer storms out, upset her father won't give her the truth. Emily tells Paige she'll stop talking to Alison after sending her this money shipment. Aria finds a note to Ezra from a book publisher. She calls the publisher, pretending to work at Rosewood High School. She's told he's there, discussing the book. Toby returns to Spencer's and tells Peter that she gave him the slip. We cut to Spencer at the DiLaurentis home. She demands Mrs. DiLaurentis tell her if she saw her do something that night. Spencer wants to know why she didn't call the cops if she saw her hurt Alison.
