Pretty Little Liars: The Recap [SPOILER ALERT]
We are just one episode away from finding out who the real –A is, or at least one of them. Let’s face it, they could reveal one –A every few seasons because we know that there is an entire ‘A Team’ to uncover. Do they really mean it this time, or is this Toby, Ezra, Mona all over again?
For those of you who missed last week’s episode, or just want a recap, here are a few dramatic moments you may have missed.
The writer of the entire Pretty Little Liars book series (Sara Shepard) made a cameo, opening the episode as one of the news reporters. This isn’t the first time she has been on the show either, in season one, episode seven Sara was ‘Ms. Shepard’ the substitute teacher for Mr. Fitz – something Aria wasn’t too pleased about.
To open the episode, we jump straight back into the courtroom where it appears Mona’s friend Leslie is a surprise witness. She’s sweet, innocent and out for revenge. Leslie, on the stand, presents a card that Mona received two weeks before thanksgiving, supposedly containing a threat written from Ali to Mona. Real or not, nobody in the courtroom appears to be on Alison’s side.
Everyone’s having their doubts about Aria’s new not-going-to-last boyfriend, Andrew, who is getting more suspicious every time he hits our screens. Although he is sketchy and possibly attacked Aria’s brother Mike in this episode, he isn’t -A material. As we already know that –A is someone who has been in almost every episode since the start, it has to be someone we know and love.
SPOBY ARE BACK ON! After an awkward heated hallway discussion about Spencer kissing strangers, Toby fought for their relationship and basically decided that he’d quit cop life to be with his girl. It was all very romantic, even if I am team Ezria!
Caleb is missing Hanna and doesn’t care who gets in trouble as long as she’s out of that godawful orange jumpsuit. Ezra took Mike up to his cabin to keep him from going to court and spilling any kind of truth, but Caleb was already at the cabin which led to a rather entertaining argument between the guys (angry Ezra should be a common occurrence on the show).
Mike is then attacked by a mystery person on what appears to Ezra to be some kind of Pathfinder Scout Camp and conveniently a little towards the end of the show we see Andrew telling Aria how he was a 12-year Pathfinder Scout. This guy is totally working for -A, or just really jealous of Ezra and his hold on Aria.
Alison could have dug herself out of a huge hole just by telling the truth about an archery award she won, but instead she threw herself under the bus. The outcome resulted in Alison being found guilty of the murder of Mona Vanderwaal.
Seconds after – while still in the courtroom – the girls are arrested because detective Tanner has been building her own case against them.
So much drama, but what more can we expect with the finale right around the corner?
-A wins for now, that’s for sure.
