Plus, ‘A’nother presumed-dead body resurfaces in Rosewood!
Like the Hilary Duff song of the same name, Spencer (Troian Bellisario) decided to “come clean” on the Feb. 26 episode of Pretty Little Liars, informing her fellow truth-haters that Toby (Keegan Allen) has been helping Mona (Janel Parrish) this whole time. But while confessing that secret might have seemed like the right thing to do, it might have sealed her ex-boyfriend’s fate. Stop reading if you don’t want to be spoiled! (Just kidding, Twitter probably already spoiled the twist for you.)
Is Toby Dead?
Yes! Or, at least, we’re supposed to think he is. After receiving a lovely bouquet of “sorry ’bout your dead BF” flowers from Mona, Spencer tracked down Toby’s lifeless body in the woods, then proceeded to have one of her classic Hastings meltdowns. Someone (aka Mona) was seen fleeing from the scene, but Spencer didn’t care; she was too busy winning all of the Emmys to even notice the mousey little murderess.
And speaking of potentially dead bodies…
Is Detective Wilden Really Dead?
Rosewood’s most evil — slash most sexy — detective may be out of sight, but Wilden (Bryce Johnson) certainly isn’t out of mind. Wait, he’s actually not out of sight either! Ashley (Laura Leighton) totally saw him lurking around Rosewood this week, but because she’s a master of denial, she was able to convince herself she was seeing things.
Hanna (Ashley Benson), meanwhile, wasn’t as easily convinced. With Aria (Lucy Hale) in tow, she returned to the scene of the hit-and-run “accident” and proceeded to push Wilden’s car into the lake. I didn’t catch a glimpse of Hanna’s feet, but I assumed she pushed a car wearing sick heels, which makes her kind of a boss.
Of course, cover-ups in Rosewood don’t stay buried — or in this case, sunken — for long! Some crazy old local was seen fishing in the lake at the end of the episode, and you guessed it, he caught him a hook full of evidence.
Aria Montgomery: Babysitter, Or Baby Killer?
In an attempt to seem OK with Ezra (Ian Harding) suddenly having a son in his life, Aria volunteered to babysit little Malcolm — but disaster quickly struck when Aria turned around for a second and let Malcolm cut his chin open on the floor.
As if that wasn’t bad enough, Aria wasn’t even allowed to stay in the hospital room with Ezra and Maggie (Larisa Oleynik) because she’s not “immediate family.” I always knew a another Fitz would come between Aria and Ezra — but I figured it would be Wesley, not Malcolm!
What did you think of this week’s episode? Are you worried about Aria and Ezra’s future? And is Toby REALLY dead?! Drop me a comment with your reactions to all of the big twists.
