Ever since Alison DiLaurentis’ body was found in the premiere, the town of Rosewood has been planning a special memorial service. But, when her big brother Jason comes back to town and takes over service from her four former besties, the friends learn he’s not just taking over the memorial – he’s not resting until his sister’s killer is found.
The girls had it all planned out: beautiful benches, engraved tiles, and a gorgeous fountain showing five innocent girls having fun. It was the town of Rosewood’s way of remembering Alison. But as they say, the road to hell is paved with good intentions…
After “politely” firing them from planning the memorial Jason also informs the foursome Jenna Marshall is going to speak at the service. The same Jenna Marshall Alison almost blew up a year ago in her garage before she disappeared. And the same Jenna Marshall that told Emily she knows all about the girls’ involvement and cover-up in her “accident”.
Jason also lets them know he’s going to push the investigation further. He later learns Toby Cavanaugh cell called Alison’s cell the night she disappeared. But, since pinning it on a missing person won’t solve the case, the police have to start looking somewhere else.
Vowing to protect their own lives at any cost, they press Spencer to keep on Jason, and to figure out a way to stop Jenna from speaking. Spencer tries to convince Jenna to drop the whole thing, but Jenna says she doesn’t care about what the girls think – the world needs to know who Alison truly was.
Spencer tries to convince Jason one more time to stop Jenna, asking why on earth Alison would want her to speak. Jason gives her an answer she didn’t see coming. Jenna looks to Alison for strength, after Alison told Jenna about show she tried to stop Spencer from lighting her garage on fire, and how she was the only one who stood up to Spencer as she hatched her plan to pin the crime on Toby.
Alison, from beyond the grave, has perfectly set-up Spencer to take the fall for Jenna’s accident! Just wait till the police get a load of that!
As the memorial draws closer each of the girls remembers Alison in their own way and realize she’s still pushing them all, one year after her death, to be stronger than they are.
Aria knows she needs to get over Fitz, and goes on a double date with Hanna and Sean. She may not be ready to date again, but she realizes there are nice guys her own age to chill with.
Hanna won’t care how other people treat him; she is going to be friends with Lucas, the computer geek. Sean, of course, hates everything about this new relationship. Lucas helps her sell some of her stuff online as Hanna and her mother realize money is not as easy to come by in their home anymore. In pops newly separated Mr. Montgomery (Aria’s dad) with some help and Ms. Marin (Hanna’s mom) starts to work her magic.
Emily knows she has to let Maya in, and not just privately, but publicly too. She asks Maya out on a real date, and instead the pair turn a movie theatre into make-out central! She also learns her father is coming back from Afghanistan soon.
At the memorial, everything goes surprisingly fine – Jenna only speaks of Alison as a good person, as do the rest of the friends. But, the real shocker comes in the final few seconds of the episode, as a gloved hand brings a shovel down on the memorial, breaking the fountain, cracking the tiles, and ultimately trashing the beautiful memorial to the late Alison DiLaurentis.
