OK, now who do you think killed Alison? Was it really Jason? Or someone else…

The July 26 episode of Pretty Little Liars was an hour of awkward encounters, shady behavior, and oh yes — just desserts! While Hanna (Ashley Benson) and Emily (Shay Mitchell) enjoyed a little never-ending slumber party at the Marin household, some seriously effed up business was going down elsewhere.

Rosewood’s friendly neighborhood carpenter-slash-gardener Toby (Keegan Allen) did some work for Spencer’s dad this week, only to uncover an old hockey stick — which Spencer (Troian Bellisario) thinks could have been Alison’s (Sasha Pieterse) murder weapon! Spencer’s shady dad also suspected it could be more than just a hockey stick, but rather than hand it over to the police, he tossed it into the fireplace. He said he’s “tired” of all the drama, but methinks he’s actually just “tired” of hiding something…

Meanwhile over at the Montgomery household, Ella (Holly Marie Combs) was busy preparing a super-awkward dinner party, complete with both Aria’s current boyfriend Ezra (Ian Harding) and future boyfriend — God willing — Jason (Drew Van Acker.) Appetizers were served. Small talk was made. Eyes were rolled.

Fortunately for Aria, the awkward little party was broken up when the police arrived at her doorstep with bad news about Mike “Sticky Fingers” Montgomery (Cody Christian.) Turns out he got caught breaking into another house, which inspired Aria to do a little digging in his bedroom. And what did she find? The hole-y jar Jenna (Tammin Sursok) made in art class! And it gets better: When Aria accused Mike of breaking into Jenna’s house, he told her found the jar in Garrett’s (Yani Gellman) apartment!

Too bad Spencer didn’t know the truth about Garrett before she decided to go for a little ride with him! The episode ended with the two of them in his cop car discussing, what else, Alison’s killer. Seriously, I didn’t trust that guy in The Lizzie McGuire Movie, and I definitely don’t trust him now.

And now for the question on everyone’s minds…
