Pretty Little Liars– 4.24 – A is for Answers – A to Z Challenge – Day 16


“I’m Coming Home...”


‘Questions are never indiscreet, answers sometimes are.’
- Oscar Wilde


Prologue

I’m a casual fan. The first season I was absolutely obsessed but as they diverted more and more from the books I just lost interest. But season 4 was the season where things started to come back together and we also promised some answers by season’s end so I checked in on the series and was delightfully surprised.

About the Show

Seasons: 4 | No. of Episodes: 95|Premiere Date: 06/08/2010 | End Date: N/A| Status: On-Air

Genre(s): Teen drama, Mystery, Thriller

Story in a nutshell: Set in the fictional town of Rosewood, Pennsylvania, the series follows the lives of Spencer Hastings (Troian Bellisario), Hanna Marin Ashley Benson), Emily Fields (Shay Mitchell), and Aria Montgomery (Lucy Hale), who are four girls whose clique falls apart after the disappearance of their queen bee, Alison DiLaurentis (Sasha Pieterse). One year later, they begin receiving messages from a mysterious figure using the name "A", who threatens to expose their secrets. At first, they think it's Alison herself, but after her body is found, the girls realize that someone else knows their secrets—including long-hidden ones they thought only Alison knew. "A" also stalked Alison, and the girls continue to discover more and more information about "A" and Alison's disappearance—all while risking their lives.

Best Reason to Watch the Show: If you read and liked the books it will still keeping you guessing as a sufficient amount of things have been changed; some for the better and others for the worse. Even if you haven’t read the books and just like a show with a good mystery then you might want to check it out.

The Best Thing about This Episode: We do actually get some answers.

Title: A is for Answers| Writer: I. Marlene King | Director: I. Marlene King

Episode Summary: Holbrook interrogates CeCe Drake who has been arrested for Wilden's murder. CeCe tries to strike a deal by providing proof that Ali is still alive.

Noel Kahn brings Aria, Emily, Hanna and Spencer to Ali's loft apartment above a coffee shop/bar. Ali appears and recounts the night of her disappearance from her perspective. The girls learned new information from Ali including that Ali copied Ian's videos from his laptop onto a USB stick during their weekend getaway in Hilton Head, Ali met Ezra in a bar near UPenn and convinced him that she and CeCe were college roommates, Ali used the N.A.T. Videos as a bargaining chip to blackmail Ian, and that one-by-one, Ali confronted all of her "A" suspects throughout the night. Ali confessed that she drugged the girls by dropping sleeping pills into the communal drinking cup in the barn - Spencer didn't fall asleep with the others because she was on amphetamines. Ali also explained that she went home thinking she had silenced "A" and saw her mother gasp from inside the house before she was hit on the head with a rock. Ali awoke to find her mother burying her.

Melissa returns from London to find her home being searched by police. Rosewood PD interrogates the Hastings family while searching for the whereabouts of the girls, still missing since the fundraiser. Melissa confesses to Peter that Spencer did not kill the girl buried in lieu of Ali and whispers something mysterious to him.

The police track the GPS of Spencer's car but do not find them in the dusty space in Philadelphia. "A" attacks the PLLs in the coffee shop. They run to the rooftop to escape. To their surprise, Ezra joins them. Ezra fights "A" and gets shot in the stomach. Hanna is able to gain control of "A's" gun but "A" escapes by jumping to the next building and does not take off the mask.

The PLLs are frantic when they discover Ezra's bullet wound. We pull back to reveal that they are not in Philadelphia but Manhattan.
Finally, Jessica's dead body is shown being dragged across a yard and someone, presumably "A," buries her.
