Pretty Little Liars Recap: Old Flames

Pretty Little Liars Recap

I’m admittedly uneducated when it comes to bridal showers, but I’m pretty sure they’re not supposed to end with the guests being turned into human s’mores.

The celebration of Hanna and Jordan’s love nearly went up in (literal) smoke on Tuesday’s Pretty Little Liars when an uninvited guest — hint: his or her name rhymes with “Müber A” — decided to turn up the heat. And while I’m not thrilled that it required Aria to turn extra-crispy, I am glad we got a nice “Ezria” moment at the hospital. (Get out of here, Liam.)

Of course, this was only a taste of what PLL‘s new, emoji-loving villain has in store for the girls if they don’t reveal the name of Charlotte’s killer — as if they know it! — by election night.

Elsewhere this week…

PREGNANT PAUSE | Tuesday’s episode also featured a flashback to less-happier times for Spencer and Toby — yes, even less happy than they are now — and revealed the reason behind their breakup. Apparently the couple had a bit of a pregnancy scare during Spencer’s sophomore year at Georgetown, which helped them realize they want different things from life. Remembering that heartbreaking event also inspired Spencer to tell Toby the truth about Caleb’s involvement in the Yvonne leak — which would have been a more-helpful revelation before Toby punched him in the money-maker — and to call Toby’s girlfriend with an apology of her own. (Side note: Did anyone else pick up on the chemistry between Ashley and Caleb at the Radley? … No? Just me? OK.)

OLD YOUNG SECRETS | Is it officially safe to cross Melissa off our list of suspects? This episode revealed that someone was blackmailing Spencer’s older sister, threatening to reveal who really killed our Bethany Young all those years ago, which is why she returned to Rosewood in the first place. … Actually, wait, that only makes her seem more guilty. I’m going to need a longer sheet of paper for this list.

Additional Thoughts:

* Is it weird that I have no idea who could have been driving the car that almost hit Emily last week? Like, genuinely, no clue. Any theories?

* I also don’t know how I’m supposed to feel about Mona. If this show has taught me anything, it’s that people — unless their name is Alison DiLaurentis — never change.
