Things heat up in this week’s episode of Pretty Little Liars as the mystery of Detective Wilden’s murder slowly unravels and the “Red Coat” comes off. Find out the five things you missed on last night’s episode: “Bring Down the Hoe.”
HANNA’S GOT A STALKER
Ashley Marin’s luck is like a roller coaster and, surprisingly, it changes for the better with the arrival of Hanna’s new stalker Travis.
The barer of bad news (and bad hair), Detective Tanner, shows up unannounced at Rosewood High revealing that a muddy shoe was found in Emily’s home and it happens to match the shoe prints from the scene of Wilden’s murder. Just when Hanna begins to lose all hope of proving her mother’s innocence, a mysterious someone leaves a wad of cash in her locker with a note reading, “maybe this will help your mother” (Yes, but it could also help Aria buy a new wardrobe).
To complicate matters, Hanna is being stalked by Travis, a fellow student, until she learns that he is hiding a juicy secret that will change Ashley’s life. Travis just happened to be on in the area the night Wilden was murdered, and he knows Ashley left before the gunshot was fired. A wad of cash and Ashley is off the hook? sounds like a win-win for the Marins!
TOBY RECEIVES HIS LAST “A” TEXT
Toby has us (and Spencer) questioning his sanity as he continues to search for answers from the two most unreliable sources: “A” and Doctor Palmer. Toby’s newest clue from “A”, a picture of Doctor Palmer’s car featuring an address, may also be his last after Spencer chooses her hoes over her bro, and fills the Liars in on his secret. Could this be the end of Spoby?
Caleb and Spence try to stop Toby from breaking into the car and possibly falling into “A’s” trap, but he refuses to listen and may have just landed himself an orange jumpsuit of his own.
KNITTING BECOMES DANGEROUS
The Liars channel their inner Nancy Drew and investigate the DiLaurentis home hoping to find evidence of CeCe Drake living in the crawlspace. Instead, they are almost stabbed by a knitting needle by “heavy-footed” individual upstairs. CeCe Drake “heavy-footed”? I highly doubt it.
While moving out of the house from hell and into Spence’s place, Emily remembers a freaky convo she once had with Alison. Apparently Ali was the anti-cupid, breaking up unhappy couples until a gun was pulled on her by one crazy ex-boyfriend. So who could it have been? Wilden? better yet why did this never cross Emily’s mind before?!
THE HOEDOWN THROW DOWN
Country girl Aria “shakes it” for Jake (See what I did there?) and shows off her impressive line-dancing skills at Rosewood’s western themed dance. But while Aria is busy throwing down her dance moves, Jake and Ezra may end up in a throw down of their own after Jake warns Ezra to give the new couple their space.
Little does Aria know, Ezra has been trying to reach out to her so he could finally confess that he isn’t Malcolm’s biological father after all. Ezra’s troubles only continue to get worse after losing his son, as it seems he has gained a new stAlker by the name of CeCe Drake.
P.S. Has anyone else switched from team Ezra to team Jake? He seems to get better looking each episode!
NEEDLE RED COAT IN THE HAYSTACK
What would a Rosewood party be without a little (by little I mean a lot) drAma? It seems like “Red Coat” just couldn’t resist a good Luke Bryan song and choreographed line-dance because she decided to stop by the dance.
Apparently finding “Red Coat” seems to be more difficult than finding a needle in a haystack. Which I find quite surprising considering she’s the only one not wearing a cowboy hat. Anyways, “Red Coat” tricks the liars into thinking she was hidden away in the hay, but instead all they find is the red coat.
I would love to think that CeCe Drake later sporting a black coat would prove that she is in fact “Red Coat” (just missing the coat). But let’s be honest, that would be way too easy.
