Pretty Little Liars Recap

Pretty Little Liars Recap: Grave Consequences

It may be hard to keep track of who’s really dead or alive in Rosewood these days, but after Tuesday’s Pretty Little Liars, there’s no doubt about one resident’s status.

That’s right, ladies and gentlemen — Sara Harvey has left the building. Well, her spirit has left us. Her bloody corpse, on the other hand, is very much still in the bathtub of her room at The Radley, as discovered in the final moments of the episode by the world’s unluckiest maid. (Then again, this is Rosewood we’re talking about. I’m sure the hotel’s cleaning staff has seen much worse.)

As for Sara’s killer, I suppose Jenna is the obvious prime suspect; as a #JennaTruther, I’m convinced that “bitch can see” again. And Noel Kahn is, of course, standing right next to her in my line-up. I mean, why else would he have returned last week, only to be completely M.I.A. from this episode? … Unless we’re supposed to think Noel was the masked cop (“Honey, I’m home!”) who attacked Alison!

Man, you really can’t trust anyone in this town, can you? (You’d think that, after 145 episodes, I’d have accepted that simple truth — but it still blows my mind sometimes.)

Elsewhere this week…

* Aria gave Ezra a lot more than just an answer to his #PLLProposal. She got down on one knee chair and told him all about Elliott’s murder, a revelation she was sure would scare him off. But no, Aria’s former teacher responded to her confession with another proposal, one she tearfully accepted. (No offense, but did she really think the Elliott thing would scare him away? It might do her some good to binge the first six seasons as a reminder that Ezra’s no saint, himself.)

* And in case Spencer and Caleb’s heartbreaking split didn’t devastate you enough a few episodes back, this week’s installment found the exes in tears once again. In a nutshell, Spencer didn’t think she’d be able to love anyone after Toby… and then she reconnected with Caleb, to whom she’ll forever be grateful for re-opening her heart. Then came the final nail in the “Spaleb” coffin: Spencer advised Hanna to tell Caleb about her split from Jordan. It was basically a passing of the torch — only the torch in this scenario is, you know, Caleb.

* Before (allegedly) killing Sara, Jenna told Emily that she was (allegedly) friends with Charlotte; Mona had apparently built Jenna up in Charlotte’s eyes as some kind of “celebrity.” She claimed that all of her secret shenanigans have been to find out who really killed Charlotte, hence her cellular connection to Elliott and her knowledge that he was lying about his identity.

* And I honestly have no idea what to make of the police officer that Spencer hooked up with. Is he a good guy? A bad guy? A neutrally handsome guy who’s somehow completely oblivious to the darker workings of this town?

Time to talk back: Are you relieved that Aria accepted Ezra’s proposal? Did Jenna kill Sara? And who was that masked man, anyway? Drop a comment with your theories below.

    I actually knew it was Sara, I checked the internet movie database to see if she was in future episodes and she wasn’t. Strange thing is…neither was Toby but clearly he is given scenes for next week.

    • Arthur says:

      OMG I did the exact same thing.

    • gort says:

      geez, seriously is there anyone who believes the database which cab edited literally anyone? of sourse there was no sara, because nobody knows who will be in the subsequent episodes. upcoming episodes actors list are full with false informations and guesses. cable networks don’t send out castlist for future episodes.

      • PllLover says:

        It’s pretty acurate. I’d say about 80%. It’s even how I found out a good friend of mine was going to star in Arrow, now he’s a series regular, and I was his boss at Best Buy : )

  2. Rachel says:

    Jason looks like Jesus!! 😱

  3. Mila says:

    The part about Ezria that annoyed is we don’t really know what she said. DId she leave out the part about Ezra’s ex-gf who disappeared or not? ‘Cause IMO it’s more likely to have him back down on the proposal than accidentally killing Elliot/Archer

    • Cornelius says:

      I don’t think she told him about the call from Nicole cause next weeks episode has this in the description. “Ezra gets a call about someone in his past that could change his course.” Unless she did and this call he gets confirms that Nicole is alive.

    • CurlyGirly says:

      I, too, thought that Aria’s confession to Ezra was about Nicole’s “phone call” and not the Elliott stuff.

  4. Cornelius says:

    I found it hilarious how Aria and Hannah were having a conversation about how Rollins is dead INFRONT of the Rosewood police station. Made me laugh.

  5. nadialus says:

    I am so happy that awful love triangle is over. I’m actually excited for future episodes now.

  6. DAMN says:

    Why would you return to the scene of the crime?
    That rule number 1!
    Now AD (or whoever) has actual evidence linking Hanna and Spencer to the death of Elliot/Arthur.
    Don’t know how they are gonna get out of this one.
    At least 1 of them is gonna end up getting locked up.

  7. Jake says:

    Yawn, when will this far fetched snooze fest end. The only reason I watch is for Holly Marie Combs.

  8. Cate53 says:

    So who attacked Alison? I was confused by the rubber mask – was that AD or whatever we’re calling the new baddie. Since unmasking Charlotte this show has got ridiculous. I know, it always was ridiculous!

    • PllLover says:

      Yeah, I really think they rely on that latex disguise bit a little too much. Like, “whenever we need to fool the audience, let’s use latex.”
