This dress is the black swan.

She's leaving.

Hurry! If the black swan wasn't guilty of something, why would she run from you guys? I thought that we had a deal about you not coming out here.

What was I supposed to tell you? The truth? Somebody took you there to make it look like you dug up Ali's body.

"Game on, bitches.

" "A.

" Wow, Jenna.

All this time you could see.

It was the only protection I had.

I'm sorry.

Maybe I'll hear that from your father tomorrow too.

You're seeing him? We have lunch plans.

I guess I have you to thank for that.

Spencer, did you call the hospital? Are they sending the records? There aren't any records.

What's that supposed to mean? It means Melissa didn't lose her baby in June.

You're big on games, but get this straight: Do not not mess with Hanna.

I've decided to defend Garrett Reynolds.

This is the man who killed my best friend.

He killed the girl Emily was in love with.

Accused of killing him.

Do we really believe that Jenna was off on a joyride that night? It was her plan to take Emily to Ali's grave all along.

Seemed to me like she was scared of someone.

And it seemed like she was blind for five months when she wasn't.

For purposes of my head not exploding, could we just say that she is telling the truth? Well, that would mean that we would cross her off the new "A" list.

Then who's still on it? Lucas? No way.

He might be a little unhinged lately, but he's not capable of digging up a grave.

Guys, all roads lead back to the black swan.

We know that she was working with Mona, the sketches were in her lair.

Spencer, mom wants to know if you want anything else.

Uh, no.

Thank you, mom.

Melissa looks great.

Yeah, she's back to being size too skinny.

Black swan skinny? Think about it.

We know that she lied about when she lost her baby.

Whoa, back up.

You think that she was pretending to be pregnant for that long? No.

That's, like, months.

There's no way.

She wouldn't do that to my parents.

Who else could it be? Mona started talking again, so maybe she can give me some answers.

Did you really think you could avoid me forever? How could you defend Garrett? Let's not have this conversation here.

Oh, it doesn't bother you that he murdered my sister? Look, I understand you're upset, but this isn't the place.

Just tell me why you're doing it.

Everyone deserves a competent legal defense.

You sure that's the only reason? Let the process play out, Jason.

Focus on taking care of your family and yourself.

Don't worry.

I am.

Jason? Are you okay? No.

But I will be.

"Imagine what I could do with 50 grand.


" Got a secret, can you keep it ♪ swear this one you'll save ♪ better lock it in your pocket ♪ takin' this one to the grave ♪ if I show you then I know you ♪ won't tell what I said 'cause two can keep a secret if one of them is dead ♪ Mom.

Have you seen this? It's hard not to.

He's plastered them all over town.

Do you think that he's gonna get any calls? Tons.

Mostly from people trying to scam him out of his money.

Well, if he finds the person that dug up the body, what's gonna happen to them? Stealing a body's a felony, so they'd go to jail for at least ten years.

And they'd probably get a life sentence for killing Allison.


So now you're convinced Garrett's innocent? No, I'm saying it'll be easy to build a case against a person who took the body.

Not only did my dad get a new haircut, but he's also wearing a new aftershave.

Soun like he's got a date to me.

He smells like baby wipes.

Does your mom know? No.

It's one thing to say he's going out on a date, it's another to say that it's with Meredith.

Hey, you.

It's better she hears it from you than someone else.



Are you on your way home? Yeah.

I thought we could do dinner.

Oh, well.

You're looking at it.

I have a pile of essays to get through.



Tomorrow night? Well, don't tell anybody, but I will have some pop quizzes to grade.

But I'm home all weekend, so, rain check for Sunday? Yeah, sure.

Didn't you stay in last weekend though? Don't you just wanna go out, be around people? I am around people.

All day, Monday through Friday.

Yeah, teenagers.

You should call up some friends.

Go have a girls night out.

And who would that be? All my friends have husbands.

Besides, I'd much rather spend a quiet night alone with you.

Unless you have plans.

That's not it.

I just what? Nothing.

I'll see you Sunday.

Love you.

Love you.

Mona vanderwall isn't allowed visitors.

Since when? Since the doctor ordered it.

Well, I've been visiting her for the past few weeks, so there must be a mistake.

No mistake.

I'll just be a few minutes, I promise.


When can I see her? She's lost her visitation privileges.


Why? For how long? I have no idea.

We don't do, like, frappuccino's here.

We do caramel cappuccinos, and then we have, like, assorted americanos.

You do know what an americano is, don't you? Yeah.

I know.

Good, good.

You are gonna be a barista soon enough.


Make me proud.

Are you Emily fields? Yes.

I called your house and your m said you worked here.

I'm Maya's cousin, Nate.

You have time to talk? Um I'm sorry.

It's my first day here, so can I call you later? Yeah, any time.

I'll give you my number.

I live here now.

In Rosewood? Just started at Hollis.

Maya never mentioned she had a cousin coming to Hollis.

Well, I applied but I hadn't gotten in yet when she was I was actually really looking forward to hanging out with her again.

Hey, Emily.

Go time.

Talk to you soon.

Green tea latte drinkers.

Yeah? So get the gluten-free biscottis going.

Gluten-free biscottis.

There's nothing else you can do about it? Yeah, I understand.

Um I guess, just let me know if anything changes.

All right, thanks.

Next Saturday.

You, me, the tenth row.

Bon iver.

Don't worry.

I'll think of a way that you can thank me later.


Okay, this is the part where you're supposed to scream, jump up and kiss me.

What's going on? I just got off the phone with wren and he told me that Mona freaked out after some guy went to visit her the other day.

And now I can't see her anymore.

I mean, seriously, I'm going to kill Lucas.

It wasn't Lucas.

It was me.

What? Why would you go there without me? Because I needed to talk to her.

About what? Nothing.



I told her to just stop messing with you.

Wait, messing with me? Yeah, before I knew it, she was flipping tables and acting like she was possessed.

Mona is in radley under All right? She's not doing anything to hurt me.

Yes, she is.

You just don't see it.

You have to trust that I know what I'm doing.

Hanna, if you were popping pills everyday, would you want me to just look the other way? That's not the same thing.

It is exactly the same thing.

Wren thinks it's good if I go talk to her.

He said it's helping me heal.

Why are you listening to some guy you barely know, instead of me? Because I obviously can't talk to you about this.

You've already made up your mind about Mona.

Wren doesn't know everything that I know.

Unless there's something that you're not telling me.

No, of course not.

Then you need to stay away from radley.

Look, I get that you're trying to help me here, but you're not.

So just do me a favor and stay out of it.

You both just need a little time to cool off.

Caleb's not gonna be cooling off any time soon.

He doesn't understand why I need to see Mona, and it's killing me not to tell him.

Maybe you should.

Maybe I should what? Tell him why you're going there, and about this "A".

Wait, are you serious? Look, if it were me, I would ezra about "A".

I'd have to.

Why are you looking at pictures of bald, fat men? I'm looking for a guy for my mom.

I don't know, I just thought she could try out online dating.

She's divorced, she's not desperate.

You didn't tell your mom about your dad and Meredith, did you? I just thought it would be easier for her to hear if she had already met someone else.

Look, all right, your mom's a catch.

Okay? She can meet someone in person.

She doesn't have to do it online.

Hey, girls.

Hey, mom.


Okay, what don't you want me to see? Nothing.

No more secrets, remember? Should I be worried? I'm trying to find a guy for my mom.

Yeah, preferably someone who doesn't look like a grape.

He's cute.

Sort of.

Mom, he has a unibrow.

Tell your mom to use mainlinemate.

It's a much better site.

All right, see you next week.

Hey, Jason.


How's it going? I've been better.

There any calls on the flyer yet? Your mom send you here to ask me that? Jason, you are upset.

I want to make sure that you're okay.

Nothing solid to go on just yet.

Maybe you should withdraw the reward.

Just let the police handle this.

Why? Because they handled Ali's murder case so well? No, because you don't need to be fielding calls from every crackpot in town who's just looking for money.

Look, all I need is one to tell me the truth.

How are you gonna kvow if they're for real or if they just want a reward? I can tell when someone's lying.

Can you? What is that supposed to mean? Why do you think your mom took this case? 'Cause she has a reason to believe that Garrett's innocent.

Or maybe she just doesn't want to see the precious Hastings name get tarnished.

You think that she's trying to protect someone? I think your mom has an agenda that has nothing to do with criminal defense.

Are you talking about Melissa? I gotta take this.

Yeah? Gourmet chef? What? She is in my house.


Athletic? All right, does your mom even own a pair of sneakers? Okay, everybody exaggerates on this thing.

I read it in cosmo.

Sit down.

Help me figure out a username.

Um Oh! How 'bout "Rosewoodgirl"? Lame.

"Artlover"? Boring.

I got one.


"Hotmama"? Mm-hmm.

I'm trying to get my mom a date with a man, not a frat boy.

Trust me, Aria.

This is going to work.



Thanks for coming.

Uh, so do you live on campus? I got a studio near the college.

Dorms aren't really my thing.


Maya sent me a picture of you.

Yeah, I sent that to her when she was at tru north.

I know it's not their fault, but I keep thinking if her parents hadn't threatened to send her back there, she'd still be here.

I sent her mom a few emails, but she never responded to me.

They're totally shut down right now.

It's all just too much.

I was just hoping they'd have some kind of service here.

The funeral was small, just family.

Well, I never got to say goodbye.

That's sort of why I called.

Maya's mom asked me to give you this.

It was delivered a few weeks after the funeral.

We saw this movie on our first date.

Actually, we didn't really see that much of the movie.

Sounds like my kind of first date.

Hey, I understand you're a cop, but you still can't go in there.

Well, this court order says I can.

How long will you be? As long as it takes.

Hello, Mona.

Remember me? Maya said you were a swimmer.

What's your stroke? Butterfly? Free style? Free style.


You swim? I was all-conference in high school.



Swimming definitely wasn't Maya's thing.

Unless there were floaties involved.

Our cousins used to always get together every summer for a few weeks at my grandpa's.

Stinson beach, right? One day, all the guys decided that we would swim from the beach to the dock and back.

It's about a mile each way.

And Maya insisted on joining us.

But after a few minutes, she started fading fast.

Wanted to prove she could hang with the boys, so she decided if she couldn't swim, she'd row.

Got in her canoe and rode all the way there.

She beat us too.

It became a daily thing.

Every morning, she'd row next to us to the dock and back.

I should get going.

I gotta get to class.

She talked about you all the time.

Said you were her first real love.

Hey, Nate.

Do you have her parents' address? I'd like to send them a thank-you note.

Don't have it with me.

Can I get it to you later? Yeah, sure.

I'm glad I finally got to meet you.

Me too.

He's still downstairs talking to her.

About what? He's been in there for over an hour.

Something to do with Alison's missing remains.

No, Mona doesn't know anything about that.

She's been in here the last five months.

Well, a judge doesn't issue an oer like that unless there's a pretty good reason.

Look, can't you just sneak me in there? I just have to see her.

I have one question.

I'll be really quick.

Oh, I know.

I'd love to help.

But my hands are tied.

I already got reprimanded by her primary last week for extending your visiting hours.

I didn't know you did that.

I didn't think you needed to.

So why did you do it? Well, I saw you together and thought you were connecting.

Thank you.

He was there with a court order to talk to her.

So what do you think Mona said to wilden? If she knows that we were at Ali's grave that night we would be in jail right now.

You guys, we need to find out who the black swan is.

Like, now.

I think we need to find out when Melissa lost her baby.

Yeah, she's right, Spence.

Melissa lied for a reason.

We need to find out what it is.

Yeah, but we know why Mona hated us.

Why would my sister wanna torture us? Because you made out with her fiance and broke up their engagement.

Okay, yeah, but that was me.

And she knows that we have the video that puts her in Ali's room the night that she was murdered.

And she fits the costume.

Going to Philly.

It just never seems to end for that family.

Or our daughters.

First Alison then Maya.

I'm sorry.

Your takeout.

Thank you.


So are you meeting someone? A date? No.

I haven't been on a date since George clooney was E.


I was hoping you might've met someone interesting on mainlinemate.

Mainlinemate? What's that? Hello? Hey.

Melissa just left.

Should we go in? No, just wait.

I'll text you when she gets here.

All right.

Roger that.

"Roger that?" What? We're on a mission.

Thank you.

"Hotmama loves tango?" I'm going to kill Aria.

How do I delete this? No, I wouldn't do that.

I know there's some strange people on here, but did you know that Jane foster met her second and her third husbands on this site? Perfect.


I've met some good guys too.

It's not easy to do at our age.

The pool we're swimming in is much shallower than it used to be.

I don't know.

It seems like hatf of this town is divorced.

Well, most of the men our age want someone their age.


Honestly Dating isn't even on my mind.

I'm just trying to adjust to all the changes.

I remember the feeling.

Do you know I do not even know how to barbecue? Or fix a toilet? Mine ran for three hours last night until my neighbor came over to ask if he could fix it because the noise was keeping him awake.

Well, some of the things you figure out more quickly than others.

And those that you don't, you figure out who to call to figure it out for you.

I think the hardest part for me was not having someone to share the little stuff with.

For me, it's sleeping at night.

I still curl up into my little area.

And one morning you wake up and you'll realize you're on the other side of the bed.

And how long did that take for you? Longer than I care to admit.

Oh, look.

It's a message from mainlinemate.

Frankie d.

Wants to meet me for coffee.


He has a full head of hair, owns his own home, and drives a red corvette.


I'll share him with you.

No, thanks.

You sure? No, thank you.

But wow.


All right, you guys, it's been 20 minutes.

We should just go in.

Spencer hasn't texted yet.

She will any minute.

Let's find out when she lost that baby.

What exactly are we looking for? Medical records.

Anything with a date on it.

I'm gonna go check the bedroom.

Okay, there's nothing in the bedroom.

Is this anything? Yeah, her car insurance.

Melissa bought a pair of Chloe boots from saks last week for 900 bucks.

Okay, now those I wanna see.

I wanna find her fake baby bump.

What? Aren't you curious? It has to be here somewhere.


Oh, my God.

She's even more anal than Spencer.

I didn't even think that was possible.

And, yet it is.

Oh, my God.

What? It's Melissa! Where? Outside.

Put everything back.

What do we do? Put everything back where you found it.

Dammit! Hanna.

That was close.

Yeah, way too close.

Okay, let's just get out of here.

We need to hang these up.

Wait, you guys.



It matches the one Hanna found at the masquerade ball.

You know what they say, if the feather fits.

Hanna, it's the shoe.

If the shoe fits.


Melissa's "A".

Guys, I know that she looks suspicious.

Okay, but we're still just guessing.

Well it's a guess I'm willing to take.

Me too.

Fine, I'll go back to Philly.


You're not going alone.

If Melissa is who we think she is, then she's dangerous.

Like, "probably had something to do with Ali's murder" dangerous.

She's not just trying to hurt you, Spence.

She's after all of us.

Well, em gets off at 8:00, so pick her up, and then we'll all go together.

Want to help me get dinner started? I thought you were staying in Philly for the week.

I decided to come back for mom.

For mom? It was pretty humiliating what Jason did to her at the grill.

He lives next door to us.

Who knows what this person's gonna do next.

He's our brother, Melissa.

I was trying to be polite.

I know that you were dressed as the black swan at the masquerade ball.

And I know that you didn't lose the baby in June.

Oh, God.

Please say something.


When did you lose the baby? The day after I found Ian's body.

What? How could you not tell me? I tried to! When? When did you try? The night of Ian's funeral.

But then I saw his phone in your bag and I thought you were the one sending me those texts.

Why would you fake being pregnant? I lost Ian! I lost the baby.

It was too much.

So you pretended? My whole life was in the papers.

I couldn't deal with this getting out there too.

At least that's how it started.

You had to know that this couldn't last, right? Why were you at the masquerade ball? I'd like to know the answer to that myself.

So, I decided to do it.

My mom's out.

I'm gonna tell Caleb tonight.

I refuse to let this "A" play divide and conquer.


What time is he coming over? Hey, that's probably him.

I'll call you back.


One morning, there was a package in the hallway outside my apartment.

The black swan dress was in it with a note telling me to wear it to the ball, or everyone would find out I was lying about the baby.

Why didn't you tell anyone? Who? You? Mom? Dad? Garrett had just been arrested, I was scared and now someone was blackmailing me.

So I put on the dress and I went to the ball.

Why were you talking to Jenna? The note said to distract Jenna at the ball.

But then I saw your friends and I I ran out.

Who would blackmail you? I'm assuming it was Mona.

She was taken to radley that night and I never got another note or a threat again.

Now that this is all out in the open, I'm hoping we can put this behind us.

I'm going upstairs.

I need to lie down.

Who else knows that she was faking it? Your father.

And Garrett.

Wait, so that's why you took the case? 'Cause Garrett's blackmailing you? It's not that.

Then why? Mom, you better tell me right now, or I swear to God, I'm gonna walk out of that door and I'm not gonna come back.

Garrett told me that his public defender was putting together a list of defense witnesses.

I recognized one of the names.

The p.


That your father and I had hired to Watch Melissa after Alison went missing.

And he found something about Melissa.

Your sister had nothing to do with the murder.

But if a jury found out that we'd hired someone and learned that she was faking her pregnancy, then they'd instantly think that she was guilty of something.

Mom? Spencer, you can't tell anyone.

Like it or not, this is your family.



You okay? Not really.

My mom was in a car accident.

Oh, my God.

Wait, when did this happen? Is she okay? Yeah, she's lucky.

Could've been a lot worse.

She was in Montecito.


It's pretty screwed up though.

She said that she felt like someone was trying to run her off the road.

I can't believe somebody would do that.

Yeah, me neither.

Anyway, you said you had something to tell me? Yeah, um Yeah, I thought I'd be able to talk about it, but.

But what? Right now is not really a good time.

I don't understand.

First, you tell me that you're hiding something from me.

And now you're saying that you can't tell me what that is.

Caleb, it's nothing.


Hanna I understand that when you lied to me last year, you were trying to protect me.

But there's no more "A".

So why are you lying to me now? Is this about Mona? No.

Then what? Could we just drop it? Caleb, where are you going? I can't do this anymore.

Can't do what? This.

I feel like you've been pushing me away for weeks.

And I just I keep hoping that things are going to go back to the way that they were.

But, clearly, that's not going to happen.

You just gotta be patient with me right now.

Hanna, I have been nothing but patient with you.

I feel like I only exist in half of your life.

And that's not good enough for me.

You have to give me something here.

More silence.


I'm done, Hanna.

What do you mean, you're done? Are you are you breaking up with me? You're hardly giving me much of a choice, are you? Come in.


What're you doing here? I thought we were doing dinner tomorrow night.

We are.

I just stopped by to get some things for the apartment and I saw your light on.

Can we talk? Sure.

I saw my online dating profile.


Look, mom, I I can explain that.

You know, part of me is angry that you inserted yourself into my personal life, and the other part of me realizes that you were just trying to help.

I'm sorry.


I know that I shouldn't have done it.

I just I thought it would be nice if you met someone.

Especially since dad's seeing Meredith again? You know about that? I do.

And I'm okay with it.

You are? Yeah.

We're not together anymore.

He can date whoever he wants to date.

I meani wish it was somebody else, but, what am I gonna do? I was worried about you.

I want you to be happy.

It's been a couple of overwhelming months for me and I'm doing my best to get through it, but that doesn't mean that I'm lonely, or dying for companionship.

You're not? No.

I've been a wife and a mom my entire adult life and I'm looking forward to getting to a common place and having some time for myself before I add somebody else to that equation.

You can understand that, right? Yes.

And, by the way, "hotmama", really? Seriously? I'm gonna go delete that right now.

Wait, wait, wait, wait.

Maybe we should leave it up for a little while.

Oh, thanks.

No problem.

I just realized I forgot Maya's parents address in my car.

Felt good writing it.

It's kind of like the goodbye I never had.

I'm actually mailing a package to them in the morning.

Want me to just add it in there? Sure.


I have to get going.

I'm meeting some friends, but we should grab a bite sometime.

Yeah, sure.

If I'm still around.

Where are you going? Thinking about heading home.

Maybe transferring somewhere else.

You don't like Hollis? It's not that, I just I'm having a tough time settling in.

All anyone seems to talk about around here is Maya's death.

Big news in a small town.

I get it, but when I think about Maya, I wanna think about how she lived, not how she died.


Losing Maya was the hardest thing I've ever had to deal with.

It's turned my whole world around.

I'm sure it's only going to get harder when the trial starts.

But I also know that Maya wouldn't want you to leave school because of her.

She'd want you to find a way to block out the difficult stuff so you can embrace the good.

Maybe you should take your own advice.

What do you mean? You're gonna have to let her go at some point, right? I mean, deep down you would know she'd want you to.

If you do end up staying, know that you have a friend.

Maya was a lucky girl.

Out for an evening stroll? I'm just trying to clear my head.

Rough night? Rough two years.

I've received over 200 calls in the last few days all swearing they know who stole Ali's remains.

Everyone's being accused from Mrs.

Welch to Obama to you.

But it's all just lies.

You have no idea how much I'm looking forward to going to college next year.

Getting out of this place.

All these dysfunctional people.

Yeah, sounds good, doesn't it? Well, unfortunately, it doesn't work that way.

Trust me.

You can leave Rosewood, but Rosewood will never leave you.

I've got to, uh I gotta do a few things.

Driving up to meet my parents in the morning.

Tell them I say hi.

Spencer, I'm withdrawing the reward.

You were right.

It's too much for me.

Truth always comes out, Jason.

One way or another.

Yeah, meet me in the parking lot in 15 minutes.

Is there a problem, detective? How far away is your parents' lake house? Why? Just curious.

Welcome to the Montecito airport.

We remind you that the white zone is for the immediate loading and unloading of passengers only.

No parking.

Final boarding call for flight 520 to Philadelphia.

Welcome to the Montecito airport.

As a reminder
