Plus, is Spencer finally ready to come clean about Toby?!
Because Rosewood clearly has no other crimes in need of solving, Detective Wilden (Bryce Johnson) spent the entire Feb. 19 episode of Pretty Little Liars terrorizing the girls, trying to make them stay quiet about the photo taken at Cape May. He specifically targeted Hanna (Ashley Benson), but after a rough encounter with Ashley (Laura Leighton), I don’t think Hanna will have to worry about Wilden for much longer…
…because she hit him with her car! That’s right, Hanna’s mom is officially a boss and drove her car straight into him. But when she and Hanna returned to the scene of the crime — you know, because that‘s always a good idea — his body was nowhere to be found!
Spencer Spills The BeAns
After a delightful night on the town with Wren (Julian Morris), which included a kiss that got #TeamWrencer trending worldwide, Spencer (Troian Bellisario) returned home to find a very angry — though very well styled — Melissa (Torrey DeVitto.) Like most bloodhounds, Melissa was able to smell the cologne on Spencer’s jacket, then promptly chewed her out for seeing Wren behind her back. For someone with such a nice new haircut, she seemed awfully uppity.
Maybe that’s because she’s also got something to hide! After interrogating CeCe (Vanessa Ray) about being at Cape May with Ali (Sasha Pieterse) and Wilden, Emily (Shay Mitchell) learned that Melissa was the one who took the picture. She was also desperate to get her hands on a video tape of Ali the night she died, which puts her right back near the top of my suspect list.
Spencer, meanwhile, decided she was sick and tired of keeping the truth about Toby (Keegan Allen) all to herself, so she started to tell Aria (Lucy Hale) — but will she really go through with it?
Desperate to find out who rented the Queen of Hearts suit on Halloween, the girls hit up Rosewood’s infamous costume shop, but Shana (Aeriél Miranda) wasn’t in the mood to talk once she realized Paige (Lindsey Shaw) had brought her “girlfriends” along. It turns out Paige and Shana have a bit of history, and even though Paige insists they’re over, is anyone ever really over on this show?
I think not.
Ezra’s Back! (Or, Ezra Is Back.)
Ezra (Ian Harding) also returned to Rosewood this week after spending some time with Maggie and Malcolm, but because no one is allowed to be happy on this show for too long, his mother wasn’t too far behind him. She tried to convince Aria to leave her son, as his whole life is about to change and become about Malcolm, but she stuck by him because she loves him. And because he’s crazy beautiful.
What Aria didn’t do, however, was tell Ezra the truth about her kiss with Wesley (Gregg Sulkin) last week. She came close twice, but always found an awkward way around it at the last minute. After everything she’s been through, does she really think Ezra will never find out?!
What did you think of this week’s episode? Is Wilden really gone for good, or just laying low? Should Aria tell Ezra that she kissed Wesley? And what’s really going on with Shana and Paige? Drop me a comment with your thoughts and theories!
