On the last episode of PLL, we found out who was “A” / “board shorts”. The other shocker was the fact that Alison is/was ALIVE this whole time. She’s back, bitches, and she needs the help of the little liars.
The girls are still in shock and none of them feel insanely happy about it. They’re all on edge and at this point they don’t really seem like they want to trust Alison, but they need her to answer their questions of the past.
Hanna’s got a theory and Spencer is pretty shocked that Hanna actually came up with something that may actually be a theory. Frankly, I’m surprised no one else came up with it earlier. Basically it goes like this: A body not belonging to Alison is in her coffin. Someone else who is dead was buried in the backyard after Alison was pulled out by Grunwald. There’s a girl who went missing the same time Ali did and she may help make all the connections. “It was important to somebody that we think it was Ali.”
And so the search begins. “Knock, knock — Who’s there?”
The girls are determined to find out if Ali contacted anybody else. First person that comes to their mind: Jason DiLaurentis. Emily finds out from Mrs. D that Jason is supposedly traveling across the country. While this conversation takes place, Mrs. D is changing Alison’s bed sheets, and I’m sitting here thinking she knows exactly where both of her children are hanging out.
Now a cute ass Spoby scene happens and Spencer’s whole demeanor changes. It’s quite adorable if you ask me.
Mona is still trying to get on Hanna’s good side. She seems to want to get back to normal, whatever that is, but Hanna is still hesitant to trust her. Totally understandable since bitch tried to kill them and was “A” minor for a long period of time.
“You all know the plot to Jekyll and Hyde but you don’t know the story.” – an English lesson by Mr. Fitz. What a fitting story considering what the viewers just found out back in October. Now they’re playing eerie music as Ezra shows up on the screen and I’m not okay. But Ezra wants another chance after Aria is done with Rosewood High. “I would like to try and be the person you think I am.”
Hanna did her research and found a girl named Sara Harvey who went missing around the time that Alison did. She filled Emily and Spencer in on her findings, but for some reason a video started to play on a projector in the classroom they were in. “A” has moved on from text messages and has decided to do subliminal messages inserting the following message in the video: “Ali, Ali, Oxen-free. Whoever finds her gets to keep her. Kisses –A” The game has just started back up again. Ezra is talking to Aria as this is happening, so I’m curious as to who is manning the projector.
Spencer goes to her father to ask about her half-brother Jason. Mr. Hastings wants Spencer to avoid Jessica DiLaurentis at all costs and it’s kind of fishy that he’s so passionate about it.
Emily seems to be the only liar that doesn’t care that Ali is alive — or she cares too much. She’s defensive and angry. Considering the girl that she loved was alive this whole time, it’s understandable she doesn’t want to trust Alison, the girl that gave them everything and took it all back. But Hanna brings up a good point. “We don’t know which one is the truth. None of us does, so we have to bring her back.”
Another Rosewood boy has returned! Caleb is back from Ravenswood and Hanna couldn’t be any happier. But it’s complicated and that’s all I’m gonna say for now.
Emily and Hanna meet Sara’s friends. Avery, one of the friends, is not present at the meeting, but according to the others, she was the last to see Sara. Here’s what screws up Hanna’s theory. Avery saw Sara the day after Labor Day..the day after the cement was poured as the foundation for the gazebo.
Mrs. Marin is now going to work for Mrs. D. She’s been having trouble trying to find a job due to her recent stint in jail regarding the death of our favorite detective, but Mrs. D listened to some advice. “Alison suggested it.” Alison is showing up in Jessica’s dreams, but they’re not really dreams. At this point I’m not sure if Jessica is in on Alison’s game. If she’s not, then this is all kinds of creepy.
Now onto my favorite scene of the show. Mona, first “A”, chats it up with Mr. Fitz, ultimate “A” (at least for now). I like how Mona had the balls to indirectly confront Ezra. She first starts off with how envious she is of the other girls and their student-teacher relationship with Mr. Fitz. Then she brings up Mr. Fitz reading list filled with mystery, secrets, masks and stolen identities. #MonaKnows and Fitz could care less.
“Fear is the number one motivator…but it also makes you vulnerable. Fear can be a very good thing, Mona. It can keep you from underestimating people. It can keep you from making mistakes about how far you can push someone before you push back.” And fear just made Mona get up and leave, without another word about secret identities and revenge.
Aria, who is still dating Jake, went ahead and called Ezra and of course he came to the rescue. She wants to go somewhere and Ezra is willing. The fact that she hopped into his car out in the open confuses me. They’re supposed to be less obvious. I love Ezria, but again, all the creepy music that surrounds Ezra makes it so hard to forget what we learned!
Emily is closing up The Brew and hears some mysterious knocking. I’m thinking that Alison is secretly visiting her because she knows how disappointed and angry Emily is, but I’m wrong. It’s Claire, one of Sara’s friends. Emily and Claire talk more about their missing friends. Claire is jealous that Ali is dead and Sara’s still missing. Apparently, Sara was a bitch. “She’s gone, but she’s not gone and we can’t get away from her.” Man, if only Claire knew…
Ezra brings Aria to a remote cabin in the woods. I’m thinking some stuff is about to go down, but he gets all sweet and gives Aria a key to the cabin. “We could have this place…It could be our secret.” My Ezria heart is hurting.
Now back to Haleb. Caleb has been giving Hanna lots of “It’s complicated” explanations. I really wish that Caleb would just tell Hanna about his situation. I’m sure she’d understand considering how her life is going at the moment. For him to make Hanna think that there’s something going on between him and Miranda makes me so frustrated. However, at the same time I get that he doesn’t want to get Hanna involved in the Ravenswood web. THIS IS NOT EASY. When Hanna cries, I cry. UGH.
Earlier, we learned that Mr. Hastings was passionate about Spencer staying away from Jessica DiLaurentis. Now we learn that he is passionate about taking Radley down. He says it’s for Spencer, but i’m guessing there’s some other ulterior motives involved.
After Emily’s talk with Claire, she decides to tell Paige about her past feelings for Alison. But now, clearly those feelings are gone. “I don’t think she ever loved anybody.” Ouch. “Cruel would mean she cared what she was doing. I don’t think she did.” Yup, now my Emison heart is broken.
Cue another Haleb scene to make me cry. “Goodbye.”
Anyways, the girls still have no idea who’s in Alison’s grave. But maybe Hanna’s little discovery may lead them closer. After stealing the item from “A”s lair, she finally decided to let the others in on it — Ali’s diary. They shall now begin from page 1.
The final “A” scene of the night, brought us back to Ezra’s cabin in the woods. The black hooded figure opens the door and goes straight to the little hidden door on the floor. I’m assuming this hidden passageway leads to the main “A” headquarters. What bothered me about this scene was the fact that we didn’t see a face. “A” could still be anyone despite what we were shown in the last episode and we still have no idea.
Until next time liars…
