This week’s episode revealed three major surprises, each one more bananas than the last. Warning: There be spoilers ahead!

In what can only be described as Rosewood High School’s worst idea ever, it was “Truth Up Day” on the Feb. 6 episode of Pretty Little Liars; and no one — least of all me – was prepared for the secrets that would trickle out. I hope you have a change of pants handy.

Truth #1: Jason is Spencer’s half-brother:

Not only is Spencer’s (Troian Bellisario) dad totally creepy, but apparently he also has trouble keeping it in his pants because — wait for it — he’s also Jason’s (Drew Van Acker) father. I’m pretty sure Spencer put it best when she screamed at her mom, “This changes everything!” That that, Mariska Hargitay.

Truth #2: Holden is probably, definitely in some sort of fight club:

Aria (Lucy Hale) suspected the worst of Holden (Shane Coffey) when she caught him with a bunch of mysterious pills, but after seeing him use his crazy ninja skills on Noel (Brant Daugherty) — don’t worry, no eyebrows were harmed in the process — I’m pretty sure he’s a cage fighter or something.

Truth #3: Kate leaked her own nude photo — and it was fake:

Hanna’s (Ashley Benson) wandering eyes paid off when she noticed that Kate (Natalie Hall) has a birthmark on her stomach — and she didn’t have one in the cell phone picture being sent around school. So she did her usual routine of cornering her enemy in the bathroom and forcing a confession out of her. And believe it or not, no one got slapped this time!

The episode ended with Emily (Shay Mitchell) getting a phone call from a guy who claimed to know “Vivian,” one of Alison’s (Sasha Pieterse) alter egos. Or, at least, that’s who the girls think Vivian is. I’m more inclined to think that Vivian is actually Alison’s twin, Courtney, from the Pretty Little Liars book series — only renamed to hide her identity from spoiler-hungry fans.

But what do YOU think? Is “Vivian” actually Alison’s secret twin sister? Is Holden a member of a secret, handsome-only fight club? And what does Jason’s paternity revelation mean for the show’s big mystery? See you in the comments section!
