Has Wilden’s true killer finally been revealed? … I doubt it.
There’s a chance Hanna (Ashley Benson) might have gone a little too far helping her mom on the July 30 episode of Pretty Little Liars. Desperate to get her mom out of prison, she decided to tell the cops that she killed Detective WIlden (Bryce Johnson), and she turned to the one person she knew could help her perfect a lie: Mona (Janel Parrish)! Unfortunately, Hanna’s knight in shining hair didn’t approve of her new ally. Could this be the beginning of the end of her relationship with Caleb (Tyler Blackburn)?
Nope! They’re still fine. (Sorry to get you all worried there.) There was a pretty big twist, though, when Mona showed up to the police station and confessed to killing Wilden herself! What does she have up her sleeve?!
Did Wilden Kill Toby’s Mom?
Meanwhile, Spencer (Troian Bellisario) dug deeper into the mystery of what really happened to Toby’s (Keegan Allen) mother. Her most unsettling discovery was that Wilden had faked her death report, and now she’s convinced that someone else wanted to see him dead. You know, besides Hanna. And Hanna’s mom. And everybody else in town.
Unfortunately, Spencer’s mom — aka Mariska Hargitay‘s stunt double — wasn’t having any of her daughter’s suspicions. I guess Spencer’s going to have take matters into her own hands… again.
A few blocks over, Aria (Lucy Hale) was up to her pretty little neck in family problems. After finding out that Mike’s (Cody Christian) teammates have been giving him a hard time, she nearly freaked out when she thought he had passed out drunk at a party. So who did she call for help? Her dashing, responsible ex-boyfriend Ezra (Ian Harding), perhaps? Nope! She punched in Jake’s (Ryan Guzman) digits, and he came running to her side in no time flat.
Once they realized Mike was fine, Aria and Jake had themselves a mini-date, only they didn’t call it a date. Even when they saw a commercial for Insidious Chapter 2 — that was some A+ product placement, by the way — Aria refused to call their future movie outing a date. She came pretty close, though!
Tears Of A Mom
And it was a rough week for the Fields family, as Emily (Shay Mitchell) and her mom dealt with the aftermath of that random car driving into their living room last week. While Emily looked to the future — she met with her old Habitat For Humanity supervisor (Rumer Willis) for a recommendation and another potential trip — Mrs. Fields (Nia Peeples) completely fell apart, faced with the mountain of stressful struggles in her life. In fact, she literally broke down at the end of the episode, crying in her daughter’s arms. (Am I the only one who cannot handle watching moms cry? It kills me every time!)
HollywoodLifers, what did you think of this week’s episode? Any new predictions for the future? It was a hectic episode, so before you drop a comment, enjoy Mikey Wax‘s song “In Case I Go Again,” which was featured on tonight’s episode!
