Spencer (Troian Bellisario) returned after a few days in rehab, only to come home to a sober shadow named Dean (Nate Buzolic), a drug abuse counselor.  A grounded Spencer had nothing to do but exercise and talk with “Mean Dean.”  The therapy made her remember hitting Alison (Sasha Pieterse) with a shovel the night she disappeared. 

Spencer was really upset about it, but it all seems a bit disjointed to me.  Spencer knows Ali’s alive, and that she’s not who Ali is afraid of. This whole nonsensical plotline just screams of filler. 



Emily (Shay Mitchell) was livid with Mr. Fitz (Ian Harding) for using all of them. When Mona (Janel Parrish) broke up with Mike (Cody Christian), Emily realized Ezra had been behind the whole thing. 



Ezra forced Mona to date Mike in order to spy on Aria (Lucy Hale). In return, he’d cut all the parts from his book about the illegal stuff Mona did. Mona admitted she actually fell for Mike, and was bummed about the breakup.

The cops thought Hanna (Ashley Benson) was the one who left the anonymous note about Alison being alive. However, Gabe (Sean Faris) thought it was legit. Travis (Luke Kleintank) and Hanna went on their first date, but Hanna was too distracted by everything “A” to make it a good one. 



She apologized and gave Travis a kiss goodnight. It looked like Travis wasn’t too sore about the disastrous outing after all.  Later, Hanna realized it was Paige (Lindsey Shaw) who wrote the note.

Aria escaped to Syracuse under the guise of visiting her dad and going on a college tour.  Instead, she mainly had a fling with hunky musician Riley (Nick Roux).  When she got back home, she confronted Ezra.  He said he wanted them to work things out.  Aria told the creeper he had to leave Rosewood for good.



Ezra gave Aria his manuscript as a parting gift. In it, he concluded "A" was Mrs. DiLaurentis (Andrea Parker)! Shocked, Aria immediately told the other girls.  Can this information be trusted?



Line of the Night:  “That's ridiculous!  How old is she?  Does she even know how to text?” – Hanna when she heard Ezra’s theory about “A” being Ali’s mom.



What do you think about the latest crazy reveals?
