It’s chock full of answers! The girls do find Alison, or meet up with Alison, and she literally says to them, “I’m going to tell you everything that happened that night and now that we’re all together and we have all the pieces, if we can’t figure out who ‘A’ is by the end of the night, I’m leaving for good.” So that really is the gunshot that launches the episode, and then she really takes the time to show them via flashbacks everything that happened from before those girls went to the barn, why she was late, and then what happened while they were asleep and why they were asleep. It’s just fun and fascinating. We had so much fun making it too because we go back to where we started. It felt like such a full circle moment.

The Liars boss also spoke about the ep’s crazy, final five minutes:

I think a lot of people are going to be standing while they’re watching. I don’t think people are going to be sitting on the couch. I think they’re going to be off the couch, they’re going to be standing up, holding hands if you’re with somebody, and mouths will be open. I’ve seen the episode now so many times and one minute you’re crying, and one minute you’re on your feet with your mouth wide open thinking, “Oh my God, I can’t believe it.”
