'Pretty Little Liars' Recap: Hanna Gets Attacked — Has 'A' Been Revealed?

Spoiler alert: Stop reading if you haven’t seen the Jan. 9 episode of ‘Pretty Little Liars!’

I’ve been wondering when the men of Rosewood would finally reach their breaking points — and apparently this was the big week. The Jan. 9 episode of Pretty Little Liars found each of the girls’ gentlemen in dangerous (mental) situations, and one may have actually revealed himself to be a member of the “A”-team!

I’m, of course, talking about Lucas (Brendan Robinson), whose true nature was exposed at Caleb’s (Tyler Blackburn) birthday party during a romantic — actually, make that terrifying — boat ride with Hanna (Ashley Benson.) He got a crazy look in his eyes and started apologizing for something he had to do, but thankfully Hanna’s reflexes are quick as her wit, and she knocked him into the water with an oar.

Meanwhile, Aria’s (Lucy Hale) parents were in full-on hate mode this week, and I’ll give you one guess who their target was. They wouldn’t even let Aria dress all sexy-like for fear that Ezra (Ian Harding) would let his animal urges get the best of him. But they might not have to worry about keeping “Ezria” apart for much longer, as they bumped into old family friends this week — and one of them is a strapping young gent with eyes for Aria!

Even Garrett (Yani Gellman) seems to be going off the deep end! We don’t know exactly what happened, but he and Jenna (Tammin Sursok) got into a fight, and now they’re not quite the dynamic evil duo they once were. In fact, you can tell he’s losing his mind because he actually asked Toby (Keegan Allen) if Jenna drove to Boston alone. Uh… did he forget she’s blind? Awkward.

Speaking of Toby, he actually seems to be the only guy in town who isn’t at the end of his rope. Things have been icy between him and Spencer (Troian Bellisario) for a few weeks, but it’s nothing a little make-out sesh in his pickup truck couldn’t cure! (Suck on that, “A!” #SpobyForever.)

OK, let the theories fly: Do you think Lucas is really working with ‘A,’ or was this somehow a misunderstanding? And will Aria’s new friend help her forget all about Ezra? Drop your thoughts in the comments section below!
