Holy smokes. The Feb. 17 episode of ‘Pretty Little Liars’ was a total gAme-changer. A fan-favorite could be on their way back to Rosewood.
There are only five episodes left in season five, and Pretty Little Liars is upping the drama. On the Feb. 17 episode, Spencer (Troian Bellisario) and Toby (Keegan Allen) hit a new low, Emily (Shay Mitchell) came face-to-face with Talia’s husband and Mike (Cody Christian) finally revealed why he’s been the creepiest brother ever. His explanation shocked PLL fans to the core. Has [SPOILER] been alive all this time?
‘Pretty Little Liars’ Recap: ‘He’s Getting Scarier’
The girls frantically searched through Mike’s room to find out what he was up to. Aria (Lucy Hale) found a nice necklace in his gym bag, but it wasn’t just any necklace. The beads on the necklace were in morse code and read, “I’m with you.”
Geez, Pretty Little Liars. Morse code? I can barely understand A’s riddles.
Mike continued to be absolutely terrifying. He stopped by The Brew and ran into Emily. When she began questioning him, Mike put a quick end to it. “I’ve already got one big sister. I’m not looking for another.”
Emily quickly texted the girls, “He’s getting scarier.” You got that right, Em.
Spencer and Johnny’s flirtationship went public. Toby showed up looking fine and wondered what the heck was going on. It was definitely awkward for everyone. Toby was being a slight tool, but I forgive him because Johnny’s the worst and Spencer’s being stupid.
Hanna (Ashley Benson) finally broke the news to Caleb about her beauty pageant plan. However, he wasn’t exactly thrilled of Hanna parading around in a bikini. Sure, Caleb. Sure.
Andrew was still tutoring Aria, and Ezra was still MIA. Mike showed up and went balls to the wall crazy about the girls going through his stuff. He took things to the next level of creepy when he said if Aria did it again then she’d “live to regret it.”
Dun dun dun.
‘Pretty Little Liars’ Recap: Bang Bang
A new dude came by The Brew and introduced himself to Emily as Talia’s husband Eric! Dang. Tonight’s episode was full of awkward moments. Despite what Talia had told Emily about her marriage, Eric thought Talia and Emily’s relationship was just a fling.
Mike’s shady factor hit an all-time high as he headed into the woods to hide something, likely for A. Andrew was watching him from afar. I know Andrew’s been around for a few seasons, but why is he so involved all of a sudden? It’s weird.
Hanna quickly realized that the pageant wasn’t just going to be her dressing up in a bikini and a pretty dress. Apparently, she had to have an opinion about the world and needed to produce a talent. Hanna said she could dance. I was hoping she would take on cheerleading and throw it way back to the Bring It On days.
Emily offered to help her create an incredible dance to “Bang Bang.” An Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj song was definitely the song to grab an audience’s attention. Hanna learned that her step-sister was also competing and that threw her into a tizzy.
When Hanna performed for her coach, she went cray cray. Midway through the dance, Hanna just zoned into her own little world. It was amazing. However, her coach wasn’t pleased. She wasn’t “pageant material.” Ouch.
Meanwhile, Johnny had spotted the artwork he did with Spencer at Hollis at an art gallery. He managed to steal it back, but Toby was hot on his trail. Despite Spencer’s pleading, Toby took Johnny into the station. Toby was still being fifty shades of cold with Spencer, but it was ultimately to protect her. Tanner wanted to take advantage of their relationship, and he didn’t want Spencer to give her any ammunition.
‘Pretty Little Liars’ Recap: Back From The Dead?
Since Emily is the best friend ever, she wanted to win the pageant for Hanna. She didn’t care what A decided to throw at her. “A can come after me any day of the week,” Emily told Hanna.
After his run-in with the law, Spencer’s mom gave Johnny the boot. Spencer was furious with Toby. She was worried about Johnny. Before he left, Johnny kissed Spencer! Nooooooooo!
Aria went looking for what Mike had hidden in the woods. She found the blood sample, but Mike showed up before she could bolt. Mike said the blood wasn’t Aria’s but Mona’s. Aria ran off because it was all getting a little too much to handle.
The Montgomery siblings ended back up at their house, and Mike wanted to explain. Before her “death,” Mike had went to Mona’s house to surprise her. When he walked in on her, he found Mona hiding her blood.
Mona had been offered a chance to expose A. The elusive A had come up with a plan to use Mona’s blood to frame Alison for her murder. Mona would have to go away for awhile but would eventually meet A face-to-face.
Unfortunately, Mike didn’t think Mona was alive anymore. He was supposed to meet her multiple times, but she never showed. He thought A had double-crossed Mona and killed her, and he’d been visiting Alison to find out anything he could about Mona.
Oh. My. God. Could Mona really be alive? Well, we did see a body on the season four finale, but this is Pretty Little Liars. Anything is possible.
HollywoodLifers, do you think Mona is alive? Sound off on all your theories below!
