‘Pretty Little Liars’ Recap: Ezra’s Brother Reveals His Dark Secret

Poor Aria! The littlest liar got the shock of her life this week — Is this end of ‘Ezria’?

It was a night of brothers, babies and bombshells on the Aug. 7 episode of Pretty Little Liars — and no one in Rosewood was hit harder than Aria (Lucy Hale), who got more than she bargained for during a chat with Ezra’s (Ian Harding) little brother Wesley (Gregg Sulkin). Did I mention how beautiful the guys in that family are? Because they’re beautiful.

OK, now that we’ve passed the jump, allow me to spill the beans: Ezra had a secret baby! Well, his ex-girlfriend Maggie had the baby, actually. It was back in high school — way back, when “Fitz” was still “Fitzgerald” — and Ezra’s mom paid Maggie off. The terms of their agreement is that she is never allowed to contact Ezra, but something tells me we’ll be hearing from Maggie. And soon.

But first, it was party time. Ali’s friend CeCe — who remains mysterious, yet awesome — took Aria and Spencer (Troian Bellisario) to a party at the Kahns’ house, where they found themselves locked in a fierce game of Truth or Dare with Noel (Brant Daugherty) and Jenna (Tammin Sursok). They also discovered that the Kahns were the ones who threw the party Maya (Bianca Lawson) used to frequent, which caused them to raise a giant Noel-sized eyebrow at the whole situation. It turns out Noel was with Jenna the night they found Emily (Shay Mitchell), causing the girls to wonder what other secrets they’re hiding.

Meanwhile, across town, “Haleb” was busy being adorable. After weeks apart from each other, Caleb (Tyler Blackburn) tricked Hanna (Ashley Benson) into meeting him — under the guise of “A,” of course — so he could stage an elaborate reunion. And that’s exactly what he did, pulling Hanna in for an epic kiss! So much for my theory about Caleb and Spencer hooking up.

So where was Emily while all of this was going down? Sobbing all over her keyboard, of course. The girls gave her access to “Maya Space,” so she spent the better part of the hour watching Maya’s heart-breaking videos. (I know I’m not the only person who got all misty-eyed when she compared Emily to Cleopatra!) The mood really picked up when Paige (Lindsey Shaw) arrived, which makes me even more suspicious of her. On this show, it’s always the person closest to you who ends up hurting you the most.

Were you totally blown away by Ezra’s secret? Do you think we’ve heard the last of ‘Maggie’? And who do you think will betray the girls in three weeks? Drop me a comment with your thoughts and theories!
