Emily’s girlfriend Paige may be more foe than friend, Aria discovers something shocking about Ezra’s past, Spencer puts a new suspect on the top of her guilty list and Hanna fears that A has a new reason to come after her. Find out what happened on tonight’s episode of Pretty Little Liars after the jump!
Ashley’s new boyfriend Ted shows up first thing in the morning after discovering a thumb drive in the chapel that contains videos of Hanna and her friends. Hanna tells her mother that Mona was the person behind the videos, but Ashley isn’t convinced that she should just throw out the thumb drive. She’s going to watch them and decide by the end of day whether or not to hand the videos over to the police.
Aria wakes Ezra up on his birthday and hopes he’ll be in a better mood since their talk about Maggie, but he’s not. Aria decides that she needs to find out whether Maggie’s life was ruined by Ezra’s family so that he can move on, and finds Ezra’s ex in a town nearby.
Aria shows up in Maggie’s classroom posing as a teacher’s assistant (anyone else concerned about how easy it was for her to gain access to children) and finds that Maggie is nice, well-adjusted adult…with a seven year old son named Malcolm.
Aria gets to Ezra’s apartment and finds his brother Noel there, wanting to surprise Ezra with a gift. Aria can’t keep the secret and tells Noel about Maggie having a little boy.
They’re ready to tell Ezra as soon as he walks in the door, but Ezra called Maggie and is relieved to hear that she’s doing great. She filled him in on all her accomplishments, except the one about being a mother. Noel pulls Aria asides and tells her that he think Noel and Ezra’s mother may be paying Maggie to keep quiet about the little boy. Worrying about Malcolm suffering, Aria agrees to wait on telling Ezra what she found until Noel can get information from his mother.
Emily and Paige are having coffee and Emily tells Paige about the kiss with Nate. Emily admits that in the moment the kiss felt right, but now she’s confused. Paige thinks she and Nate are connected because they both loved Maya.
Emily meets with Nate and he’s ready to change their Facebook status, but Emily quickly tells him that she just wants to be friends with him. Nate gets angry and starts accusing Emily and Maya of being teases, so Emily takes off before he can say anything else. He seems to have a real anger problem. Put him on the suspect list.
The girls spot Cece in the hallway at school and Spencer realizes that she bailed on helping Cece with the trunk show at her boutique that night. While they’re talking, Cece sees Emily with Paige and refers to her as pigskin, a horrible name that Ali used to call Paige. Spencer has a flashback to Alison talking about a girl named pigskin and how she tormented her in gym class. Spencer quickly realizes that Alison’s actions may have driven Paige to act as A and becomes scared that Emily is getting close to a killer.
Spencer tries telling Emily about Cece’s memory about Paige, but Emily doesn’t want to hear it. Spencer reminds Emily that Paige once tried drowning Emily, which really sets her off and she storms away.
Meanwhile, Hanna tells Jenna about the thumb drive and tries to explain that she and the other girls had nothing to do with it, but Jenna doesn’t want to talk. Nate finds Hanna at the high school and tries to talking to her about Emily, but the topic quickly turns to Jenna and Hanna lets it slip that Jenna once pretended to be blind. Nate yells at Jenna and says ‘You see me, girl’. Did she see him do something??
While getting ready at the boutique, Cece tells spencer about another memory with Alison and Paige, which included Alison posing as Emily and sending Paige a love letter. When Paige sent a letter back, Alison used it to blackmail Paige and threaten to tell Paige’s conservative father that his daughter is gay.
Spencer goes into the change room to get ready for the show and is quickly locked inside the room and then attacked by a FREAKING snake in one of the clothing boxes. AHHHH! She’s rescued by Cece, who doesn’t seem too concerned that her snakeskin purses were actual snakes.
It’s Hanna’s turn to get changed next, but her surprise is much better. Caleb sneaks into the trunk show and tells Hanna that he convinced Ashley to not turn the videos over to the police. Then they make out. Go Haleb!
Emily shows up at the trunk show with Paige and gets an icy reception from Spencer and Cece. Paige offers to help Spencer put the clothes on display and Spencer attempts to get to know the newest addition to her suspect list.
The knife from Maya’s bag is missing from Emily’s room and Spencer and Hanna think Paige may have been the one to take it. They search Paige’s bag, but Emily catches them and rushes off, but not before Spencer finds another earring that Aria put into Alison’s grave. Why does Paige have items from Alison’s grave? Because she dug it up. Annnnnd run Emily!
Hanna gets home and watches Ashley put the thumb drive in the garbage disposal after she admits that she did it for herself and her daughter. The video not only included videos of the girls, but also a clip of Ashley with Detective Wilden. Hanna covers for her mother with Ted and says that she destroyed the drive.
Paige finally comes clean to Emily and admits that Alison spent all of grade nine torturing Paige, who tried to fight back until she realized how evil Alison really was. Paige even considered suicide, but knew that meant Alison would have won. I’m still thoroughly confused as to why any of the girls were friends with Alison. She sounds like pure evil.
Jenna finds Emily on her porch and is there to warn Emily that she needs to be very careful with whom she spends her time with.
Before Jenna can elaborate, she realizes Paige is there and takes off, jumping into a cab with her suitcases. If Jenna is so scared that she’s leaving town then I think it’s time for everyone to get the heck out of Rosewood.
Our final glimpse of A confirms something we’ve long suspected – A is A’s.
