'Pretty Little Liars' Season Premiere Recap: Alison's Body Goes Missing

Tue, June 5, 2012 9:11pm EST by 8 Comments

Who do YOU think dug up the body? And who’s the new ‘A’? Great, just when we thought we had it all figured out…

The June 5 season premiere of Pretty Little Liars basically began the same way as the very first episode: Aria (Lucy Hale), Spencer (Troian Bellisario), Emily (Shay Mitchell) and Hanna (Ashley Benson) got super drunk and giggled about boys — then someone went missing. This time it was Emily, who the girls later found standing over Alison’s (Sasha Pieterse) empty grave. Holding a shovel. I’m familiar with the concept of getting drunk, but I’ve never “pulled an Emily” before. Yeesh!

The good times continued as each of the girls went cray-cray imagined  “A” stalking them throughout Rosewood. Aria “saw” her in the bathroom, Spencer “saw” her in the woods, and Hanna — well, Hanna actually did see her. She’s been visiting Mona (Janel Parrish) on the down-low for weeks using a fake name.

Speaking of shady visits, Spencer dropped by the local prison to see Garrett (Yani Gellman), who she’s apparently been having secret phone conversations with. Though he told her didn’t know who killed Maya (Bianca Lawson), he did say he knew who dug up Alison. In fact, he screamed it. But don’t worry, no one thought it was the least bit suspicious that a dude was screaming, “I know who took the body!” like a crazy person. No one even blinked.

As always, the men in the Liars‘ lives existed solely to make them feel pretty and safe. Ezra (Ian Harding) and Aria reminisced about that time they met in a bar and hooked up immediately in the bathroom; Caleb (Tyler Blackburn) remained completely clueless about where Hanna’s been sneaking off to; and Toby (Keegan Allen) remained shirtless long enough to become a trending topic on Twitter. And deservedly so.

A few sad topics of note: Byron (Chad Lowe) and Ella (Holly Marie Combs) are apparently separated again, and although it didn’t go officially stated, I’m pretty sure Melissa (Torrey DeVitto) had a miscarriage.

The final moments of the episode involved yet another shocking discovery: The girls learned that someone (*cough* “A”) took pictures of them standing over Alison’s empty grave! Dun, dun, dun…

All right, kids, it’s time to play our favorite game all over again: Who do YOU think “A” really is? And who dug up Alison’s body?

am i the only one who found it weird that yet again spencer was the first one awake emily disappeared just like in the first episode. and she was out looking for emily in the upper floors of her house just like she was coming into the barn when alison disappeared. i cant help shake something about spencer that ive felt since the pilot. i feel like we should beyond the point of suspecting something from the liars themselves but something about spencer irks me. i love her but she would be the most likely to kill alison (of the four liars). she has motive, means and opportunity. she is after all a brainiac capable of tricking the others and being the big bad all along.

I think Alison killed Maya and Dug up the body because Ali has a twin sister that’s named Courtney but really Courtney is dead so that means Alison is still alive. :)

ok so we all know that there is an ”A” clan but I still think that there gonna twist the series and go by the book. Alison isn’t dead but in the book it said that she had a twin sister. So I think that she might be dead and alison might still be alive. And for Maya’s body I dont know. That is the mistery I have to solve. aka ask my friends :p

thats only a theory right now but she has a twin in the book which is why people think the show may be following the books exactly.
