Spencer spills Toby’s secret, Hanna finally gets some help for her mom’s case, Emily flees the DiLaurentis house and Aria is in a tug of war between Jake and Ezra. Find out what happened on tonight’s brand new episode of Pretty Little Liars after the jump!
The girls are convinced that it was Cece squatting in the DiLaurentis house, but they still can’t figure out what Cece would want with them, even if she thinks it was the girls who got her kicked out of school. Hanna changes the topic to her mother, who still hasn’t been able to find a reputable lawyer since Mrs. Hastings was forced to remove herself from the case.
Speaking of the case, Lieutenant Tanner decides to inappropriately pay the girls a visit and tell them that a muddy shoe from Wilden’s crime scene was found in the wreckage at Emily’s house. Who is she, Wilden 2.0? Hanna quickly excuses herself, terrified that it’s her mother’s shoe.
Hoping to figure out a way to put Cece on Tanner’s radar, the girls are going to start by going through the DiLaurentis basement again. It’s Hanna’s job to take Mrs. DiLaurentis shopping and get her out of the house for a bit. Left alone in the hallway, Hanna begins to cry, but stops when she sees a guy watching her.
Later at her locker, Hanna finds an envelope with the name Diva Dash (the store Cece worked at) stuffed with cash and a note saying that it can help her mother. She looks up to see the same guy staring at her.
Hanna stops by the Brew on her way to shopping with Mrs. DiLaurentis and confronts the stalker, telling him to stop following her. He tries to explain himself, but she walks away too quickly.
Jake surprises Aria at school and gives her the name of a hot shot lawyer who is a friend of the family, but Aria lies and tells him that Mrs. Marin already found someone. What was dat about? Jake looks uncomfortable, so Aria invites him to the hoedown that night and Jake accepts.
Aria and Jake head to the Brew for coffee later that day when they run into Ezra. He and Jake have an uncomfortable run in and Ezra leaves, looking defeated. Jake then gives Aria a gift of really cute blue cowboy boots and takes about five hours to put them on her. Foot fetish?
Emily gets a glowing recommendation from Zoey, her supervisor in Haiti, and Paige takes it as Zoey having a crush on Emily. She shows it to Mr. Fitz to get some perspective and he snaps at Emily, apologizing immediately and tells her that Maggie is moving across the country with Malcolm, but to not tell Aria. Also, he seems to have lost his razor. I like depressed Ezra.
Toby and Spencer are in Toby’s truck, which shockingly has a CD player, and a recording of Toby’s mother singing begins to play. Toby starts to cry and removes the disc, seeing a note from A telling him there is more where that came from. The song is from a session with Dr. Palmer and Toby wants to see the doctor and find out whether there are more recordings. Spencer begs him to stop, telling him that he’s under A’s spell. Seriously, she is too weird about this stuff with Toby’s mom. She is totally hiding something.
Emily, Aria and Spencer are looking around the DiLaurentis crawl space when they hear someone upstairs. A text from Hanna confirms that Mrs. DiLaurentis is with her and not at home. Aria begins looking through the holes ‘A’ drilled in the floorboards when a knitting needle is shoved through and almost takes out Aria’s eye.
On edge after the knitting need incident, the girls demand to know why Spencer is keeping something from them and she finally tells them about Mrs. Cavanaugh.
Emily is too scared to stay at the DiLaurentis house and she and Spencer begin packing up her belongings when Emily has a flashback to her time with Alison. She remembers Alison telling her she broke up with a boy for a friend of hers, but didn’t know the boy had a gun, which he pulled on her. He used to go to their school, but Alison wouldn’t tell Emily who he was. Ian? Wilden? Emily thinks Cece was dating Ian and Wilden and couldn’t get rid of him without killing him.
And she is red coat! And she doesn’t want to go back to Rosewood! And that’s all I got.
Hanna and Caleb arrive at the hoedown and when Caleb leaves to get drinks, the stalker appears. His name is Travis and he knows Ashley is innocent. He was at the lake that night. Wilden had called him to pull the car out because his family owns a garage and he saw Ashley leave before Wilden was shot and then saw a girl running through the woods. It was Travis who put the money in Hanna’s locker after it was left in his truck. His dad had bad blood with Wilden, so Travis didn’t report anything, worried his father may look at guilty as Ashley. The money was left in the truck and Travis didn’t feel right keeping it, but he won’t do anything else to help Ashley.
Caleb doesn’t think that Hanna can trust this guy, but she feels like she doesn’t have any other option.
She follows Travis to his family garage and begs him to reconsider, which he finally does, telling Lieutenant Tanner everything he told Hanna.
Wow, Jake really ‘stepped up’ to the dance floor. Unfortunately, Ezra is on chaperone duty and noticed. And then Jake noticed him notice. Jake has a few words with Ezra and tells him to back off. I feel like this isn’t over yet and I’m hoping it ends in a dance off.
Toby gets a text from A with the location information and a picture of Palmer’s car. Spencer lets it slip that she told the girls about Mrs. Cavanaugh and Toby runs off to go to the address without Spencer.
Spencer finds Caleb and asks him to follow Toby and Caleb finds Toby down the road trying to break into Palmer’s car. The two begin to argue, but run off in time to escape the police car that ‘A’ likely called on them.
Emily spots red coat at the dance and grabs Spencer, running outside after the figure. They try to follow red coat in a truck, but Spencer can’t get it started. Emily sees red coat jump into the back of the truck, but by the time the girls get out it’s just a coat.
Emily tells Aria about Ezra losing Malcolm and Aria goes to Ezra’s apartment that night to talk things over to her ex.
Oh, and Cece listens in on their conversation. What?! What happened to her not coming back to Rosewood? Why does she care about Aria talking to Ezra?
