Pretty Little Liars Recap: “Cat's Cradle”


Spencer (Troian Bellisario) helped Toby (Keegan Allen) investigate his mother’s suicide, which included sneaking in to Radley.  After a few minutes of detective work, they were convinced of foul play. 

Also, Melissa was back, and putting the rest of the girls on high alert.  Melissa (Torrey DeVitto) was hoping to move away if she got the internship, and suggested Spencer should get out too. 

Aria (Lucy Hale) was jealous of her mother’s love life, when she and her boyfriend decided to take an extended vacation together in Vienna.  Aria continued dating Jake, and was upset when she realized they didn’t have the same taste in movies.  He reassured her everything is fine by pointing out it was good they’re not too similar, so they’re never dull. 

Hanna (Ashley Benson) found out all of the Liars and their family and friends/Team A suspects were persons of interest in Wilden’s murder.  Meanwhile, Caleb learned from Hanna’s father that Ashley had stolen his gun the night Wilden was shot. 


The Liars were unable to figure out the bird phone number.  Instead, they found a new Alison clue: a mask she had made in her likeness.  The mask took them to a visit with the weirdo mask maker who remembered Alison, because she modeled for him. 

They also discovered Melissa had once been a muse.  Was it something Melissa and Ali did together, or was one girl following the other?  Could the two of them also have been having an affair?

It also looked like A was targeting Emily’s (Shay Mitchell) family now.  Her young, attractive doctor was suspicious of her shoulder wound.  Soon, social services were arranging a visit, after an anonymous tipoff.
