Seriously, this show is turning into a teenage version of ‘Clue.’ And I love it.
It was Ian! In the woods! With the trophy! Or at least that’s what the girls thought when they found a blood-stained trophy in Ian’s (Ryan Merriman) trunk on the Feb. 21 episode of Pretty Little Liars. But when the police determined the blood wasn’t human, the girls were taken down to the police station for questioning. Dun dun DUN!
The girls also recalled a college party Alison (Sasha Pieterse) took them to before she died. She had her eye on Ian all night, but when a girl mysteriously fell down the stairs, the cops came and busted up the party. The Liars initially pegged Ian as the one who pushed the unnamed partygoer, but as the puzzle pieces came together, they began to wonder if Alison didn’t do it herself!
But the usual game of whodunit wasn’t the only thing that went down this week. Here’s what each of our girls were up to in Rosewood:
Aria & Mr. Fitz:
This wasn’t such a great week for Rosewood High’s statutory twosome. Ezra’s (Ian Harding) directing the school play, The Bad Seed, and Aria (Lucy Hale) convinced him to make her the stage manager. Big mistake. She slipped up and called him “Ezra” in front of the whole cast, which raised more than a few eyebrows, along with Ezra’s temper.
Things got even worse when Aria’s dad (Chad Lowe) told Ezra that Aria was looking at colleges in California, prompting the couple to have a big awkward conversation about the future of “Ezria.”
I’ll be honest — as much as I like Aria and Ezra together, I’m getting a little tired of seeing them go through the same problem week after week. There’s an age difference, it’s tough, we get it. Can we move on to more pressing issues now?
Hanna & Caleb:
Sorry “Ezria,” but Hanna (Ashley Benson) and Caleb (Tyler Blackburn) are quickly becoming my favorite couple on the show. After getting an eye-full of Caleb in the shower — click here to read my interview with Tyler about that — Hanna got awkward and backed off. But she couldn’t hold back her feelings forever, and the sexual tension between her and Caleb resulted in the show’s most epic kiss yet with not one, not two, but THREE dramatic camera spins! That’s when you know it’s love.
Spencer, Toby & Emily:
Talk about a wacky love triangle! We all know Emily (Shay Mitchell) and Toby (Keegan Allen) developed a very “special relationship” during the first half of the season, but she’s fully into girls now — so why is she jealous that Toby is now spending all his time with Spencer (Troian Bellisario?) Could it be that she really isn’t strictly a ladykiller? As far as I’m concerned, Toby and Spencer have something really adorable happening, and if Emily gets in the way of that, then she’s not just a pretty liar. She’s a selfish one, too!
