Previously on Pretty Little Liars.

I'm cutting you off, you're over caffeinated.

Hey, Brenda, can I grab you for a second.

Come see me next week if you need more.

I signed the agreement.

My dad manipulated you into signing it.

My mother didn't kill herself.

It's over.

All I know is that Alison is running out of money and Shanna is the only one who knows how to reach her.

I'm tired of lying.

You have to start thinking of me as the person you're closest to.

Oh, A Night in Tunisia.

Forgot the chickpeas.

Oh, I can run down to Seymour's.

Are you okay, I mean, it's like an hour there and back.



Want to go right, Spencer.

I think we're being watched.


I'm sorry.

I didn't mean to scare you.

You think she started up with Ezra and didn't tell us.

Had she told you? - Told me what? Aria.

Found his journal.

You're saying that Ezra left that book for us to find.

Which means he knows we know.

We have to tell Aria.

Spencer? Spencer? Are you alright? How long have you been here? I don't know.

Did you sleep here? I don't know I I came in here.

Hey, take it easy.

Let's talk for a second.

I'm fine.

I'm just really tired, that's all.

Spencer? We both know what's going on here.

I think it's time we address the issue don't you? The path you've been going down is very dangerous.

I got to go.




What are you wearing? It's nothing, I I had to change.

And this is all I had in my gym locker.

Did you? Did you have an accident? What? No.

Or are you going to? What's up with those shower shoes? Can you just forget about the outfit, okay.

We have an emergency situation here.

Is that why you called me at 4 A.


? Wait, what? Okay, I thought that after we saw Aria liplocking with the devil went home to calm down and crash.

I I must've just hit dial while I was asleep.

Look, okay, I know we said we were going to talk to Aria after school, but I really think we need to tell her about Ezra sooner.

Like, now.

What? Spencer, we can't tell her now.

The longer we wait, the more dangerous it becomes.

And you think it's any less dangerous to drop a bomb like that while she's going into class? We can't do that to her.

Do what? Protect her? Ezra spoke to me this morning and I could barely maintain eye contact.

Meanwhile, for all we know right now, Aria is hooking up with him in some janitor's closet.

How does that not make your skin crawl? It does.

Look, I know you don't want to keep her in the dark.

Okay, but this isn't going to be easy.

She's in love with him and she has given up a lot to be with him.

I mean, it's going to be difficult enough for her to believe he's even capable of this.

Aria? You had a question about the the reading assignment for the week? Oh, yeah.

I was just wondering how much information we have to turn in for the exam.



I know you have history right now, but I can write you a late pass That's okay.

What's up? Have you talked to Spencer today? No.


Why? I feel a little strange coming to you with this.

Did something happen? Certain things have started to pile up.

The homework Spencer's turning in is sloppy and rambling, she walks in every morning with circles under her eyes, I mean, when she's in class, she's either hyper alert or she's a total zombie.

Yeah, I mean, I've noticed that she's been little out of it lately.

But she's had a lot to juggle.

And you know Spencer, she's a total stress-case.

A garbanzo bean in the wrong salad bin is enough to make her her wig out.


I think it's more than that.

Like what? She has a problem with amphetamines.

And I'm worried it's become a crutch.

What? Ezra, that's crazy.

Well, people think it'll improve their academic performance, but when it's overused Ezra, come on, Spencer? She's got everybody fooled, Aria.

Your friend is a ticking time bomb.

And when she explodes I don't want you to get hit by the shrapnel.

I'm sorry, I can't believe it.

You really think that she's on drugs? I don't think it.

I know it.


I wasn't going to show you this.

I guess I'm willing to break the rules if it means helping Spencer.

Aria, I'm not trying to be the bad guy here.

Hey, you.

These are Hanna's clothes.

So long story.

You want to tell me about it while we go for a ride? I would love to, but I've this quiz right after lunch on the French succession of popes.

And right now the only thing I know about them is that they wore pointy hats.

I brought us some food.

Are you still mad at me for taking the money? No.

No, I was never mad at you.


I was, maybe a little.

Well, I don't think my mom would have been disappointed.

I think she would have wanted me to live my life.

Find a way to make it full and share it with the people I love.

You want to start by sharing a sandwich? Yeah, sounds good.

Are you gonna eat that? Yeah, I told you that like five seconds ago.

Just take it.

Thank you.


I just get I just get extra hungry when I'm nervous.

I thought it was sad.

I get sad when I'm nervous.

Look, I've been avoiding Aria all day.

Like I haven't.

I finished my Spanish homework in a toilet stall.

Are you sure this a good idea? I mean, what if we tell Aria, Ezra's "A" and then she hates us? What choice do we have except to prepare for things to get ugly? Finally.

Is there some cellular dead-zone that you can know about in the school? What do you mean? Well, I've texted you both like five times.

Whatever, where's Spencer? I haven't seen her.


Well, we need to find her and talk to her right now.

What about? Right, I think we all know that Spencer's been a little extra-intense lately.

And I'd just chalked it up to stress, but she's not distressed.

She's strung out.

You guys, Spencer has a serious problem.

All right, and this isn't the first time that has happened.

Two years ago it was enough of an issue that her parents had to ask the school for help.


Is that okay? I'm just really tired.

Why don't you come over tonight? I'll get us take out from Bucali's.

Rent a movie.

Maybe even throw a massage in there if you're good and you finish all your lasagna.

That sounds amazing, I just I can't tonight.

Then tomorrow.

We need some time together.

I know.

That's okay.

I got that.

Thank you.

I'd almost forgotten your smell.

See you later.


Two diets and a regular, right? Oh my God.

You guys did it already, didn't you? Did what? Nothing.

We're not here to talk about that.

We're here to talk about something else.

Spence, we're concerned.

Yeah, I know.

We're concerned.

No, we're worried about you.

Me? Why? Are you a speed freak? Hanna.


Have you been taking pills to stay awake? Where is this coming from? What the hell is happening right now? We care about you.

Yeah, would you and that's why we're here.

Right, this is kind of like an intervention.

Yeah, I know.


Spencer, stop.

We know this has been problem for you before.

I don't know what you guys are talking about.

Where'd you get this? Ezra.

He's worried about you.

You're kidding me, right? And you two didn't tell her? He's "A," Aria! Ezra is Board Shorts.

He tried to kill Ali and he's been torturing us ever since.

Spencer, can we please stick to the subject of you for right now.

How can you not see what's happening right now.

He's trying to undermine me.

He's being "A"! Please tell me you see what's happening here.

Ezra said that he found you passed out in school today.

That you were barefoot, you were in your pajamas, and you didn't even know where you were.

Spencer, is that true or is it not true? Spencer? Talk.



I slept walked.

To school? - Yes.

And I've taken a couple of pills a few times.

And it's not great, I know, but it's not that big of a deal.

And Ezra is just trying to make it into a bigger deal than it is because he's trying to get the focus off himself because he's freaking "A"! Oh, my God.

This is brilliant.

All right, I know that you're feeling cornered.

Oh, God, Aria.

Will you wake up? This is exactly the kind of deer in the headlights behavior that almost got you shot in the back of a night club.

What night club? I mean I am Okay, I'm confused, but the point is that I'm not crazy, okay.

You just don't see.

How can you guys not see what's happening.

I can't deal with this right now.

Wren? He's your hook-up? Why did you just swipe the pad? It's not mine.

I've never even seen that before.

I bet you were a cute baby.

Oh, not really.

I had to start wearing corrective lenses when I was still teething.

Yeah, that sounds adorable.

No, it really wasn't.

No, I cannot believe I admitted that.

I must really like you.

Like? I was was kind of hoping you'd say that other word.

The one that rhymes with glove? I didn't mean to go there.

I think the candlelight is getting to me.

So do you want to split the steak and fries or were you more into the chicken? Mona? A steak.

Steak sounds great.

I'll be right back.

I just I have to talk to Mr.

Fitz about a reading assignment.

Hello, Mona.

What are you doing here? I'm getting something to eat.


I can't help you anymore.

Why's that? It's gotten too complicated.

It's always been complicated, Mona.

That's a little too late to back out especially now, when I need your help.

Ezra? That's me.

Thank you.

Enjoy your dinner.

So did Aria text you? Yeah.

She said she's staying in.

Can we believe her? Why? You think she's going to go see Ezra? Spencer may have an addiction, but so does Aria.

Love is a drug too.

And who says Ezra doesn't put Aria in a what do you call it? - Altered state.

Yeah, exactly.

I think Aria kept her habit a secret, too.

It's a classic druggie move.

So what are you saying? You still think that Ezra is "A"? There's too much evidence against him.

We found the Book of Revelations in his desk.

Yeah, but what if that was a plan from the real "A", trying to make Fitz look guilty.

"A's" does that.

Can I come in? Please.

That's all of them.

I don't need them anymore.

Are you sure? Yeah.

Look, I know that my credibility with you guys kind of got decimated today, but Ezra is "A".

I'm sure of it.

Maybe you are.

But we're not.

I know that.

And all I'm asking is for the chance to prove it to you.

I've been studying all the changes.

And I think "A" is trying to cover up the place where he used to meet Ali.

The Hart and Huntsman? No.

Somewhere else.

A place where they can meet and not be seen.

See this? "Still thinking of Ambrose Pearson.

" Right, but that's not what it used to say.

Originally it said "still thinking of Ambrose Pavilion.

" "A" changed it so that would sound more like a person's name so that instead of looking for a location, we'd be searching for a guy.

Yeah, some weirdo named Ambrose.


So Ambrose Pavilion is in Norristown Zoo.

So how does that prove that Ezra is "A"? It doesn't.

But "A" already knows that Ali's still alive.

And "A" knows that she never got that money in the coffee bag that she needed from Shana.

So all we have to do is convince him that Ali's going to meet us at Ambrose Pavilion to get it.

And you think the person showing up will be Ezra.

Yeah, I could do dinner if it's on the early side.

Okay, great.

I'll be leaving in five minutes.

All right, bye.

Have you been in your room all day? Yeah.

It started out as a nap.

I'm leaving to play a round-robin with Tricia and Joan.

Wish me luck.

Good luck.

Are you still going to join us at the club for dinner? Oh, I'm totally spaced.

Toby really wants me for dinner at his place tonight.

Okay, fine.

But at least come up with a better excuse for me to give next time.


Love you.

Love you, too.

Good luck.

Hey, it's Toby.

Leave message.


It's me.

Change of plans.

My mom is forcing me to go to dinner with her country club cronies tonight so.

I might be able to make it by after, gonna be on the later side.

I mean, she was just so desperate.

At first she totally denied it, and then she just completely flew off the handle.

When I was getting my teaching certificate, they had us practice confrontations, that could be really difficult, people become really defensive.

Defensive? No, she slid past defense and went straight to offense.

She attacked me, she attacked Emily and Hanna, and she even went as far She went as far as to say what? She's just she's out of control right now.

You know, I think it's time to tell Spencer's parents about what's going on.

Oh, god.

No, I don't want to have to do that.

If you don't, I'll have to.

And it becomes a much bigger deal if a teacher gets involved.

But can't we just let her figure this out on her own? Aria, Spencer doesn't remember driving to school.

She could have killed someone.

I know.

I know that.

But she's a really strong person.

And I promise you, she'll get herself out of this.

At what cost? Do you remember Radley? Yes.

She thought she found Toby, dead in the woods.

That's exactly my point.

Seeing a motorcycle helmet and a tattoo is enough to unravel her completely.

You're right.


How did you find out about that? The tattoo part? What do you mean? I mean, how did you know that Spencer only saw the helmet and a tattoo? I just don't think that was included in any of the reports or anything.

I think you must have told me.


I probably did.

Can I top you off? Oh, no.

I'm good, Emily.



Yeah, I can't talk right now.

Can I call you back? Seriously, now is not a good time.

No, I know, I just I don't know if I can do it.

We don't even know if Ali's actually going to show up.


I think he's listening.

Oh, he's definitely listening.


Now say something like.

"I know she needs some money, but it's too dangerous.

" I know she needs some money, but it's too dangerous.

Tell her to get closer to this mush fries.

Just in case he can hear.

Just mention the location Yeah, I heard you.

Ambrose Pavilion closing.

I got to go.

Hi, good afternoon, this is Veronica Hastings calling on behalf of my daughter Spencer.

We were just hoping to refill her prescription today.

If you would, would you please give me a call back at You know, actually I'll just try you back again later.

Thank you.



Hello? Mrs.

Hastings? Yes? I'm returning your call from Dr.

Griggs's office.


Griggs? I spoke to the doctor and he'd really be more comfortable if Spencer came in to see him before he re-ups her prescription.

There must be some mistake we haven't seen Dr.

Griggs in years.

I have it here that you've called several times.

Is that right? Mrs.

Hastings? Thanks.

I'll call you back.

We have less than an hour before closing.


Ambrose Pavilion.

According to this, we should be right here.

Oh, over there.


I can't.

I'm sorry, just looking at the sign gives me heebie-jeebies.

You'll be fine.

They're all behind glass.

Hanna, come on.

There's nothing to be scared of.

Reptiles first appeared in Carboniferous Period.

The snake is so cool.

Do you think it eats mice? Yeah.

The black mamba Only Ali would think it's sexy to make out in front of a bunch of reptiles.

That one is sleeping.

Come on.

Can you just toss that thing so we can get out of here.


We have to wait for Spencer to get into position.

Where is she? I don't know.

She should have been here by now.

What a gyp.

There's nothing in this one except a log covered in goo.

Oh, my god.

The first thing Alison ever told me about herself was a lie.

Lying was her oxygen.

She could do it while she was laughing.

She could even do it when she was kissing you.

The zoo will close in 5 minutes.

This is Spencer's plan.

She wouldn't have gotten it wrong.

There's Spencer.

Finally, let's move.

Reptiles first appeared in the Carboniferous Period.

Today recognize roughly Aria? Aria, I know you're out there.

Why are you hiding from me? Aria.


Aria! Why are you doing this? Just come out and talk to me.

Please, just don't do this.

Please come out and talk to me.

Why isn't Spencer doing anything? She'll make her move when she thinks "A" is here.

And you think that it's going to be Ezra who shows up? Guess we'll find out soon.

Okay, once Spencer gives us the signal, we'll double-back.

God, you guys.

I'm so sorry, I'm late.

Just help me get this on and then I can move into position.

The lift is closing in 5 minutes.

Aria, Aria, Aria, I didn't mean for it to end this way.

Damn it! Gosh.

She was just here.

Who was? Let's get out of here.

The Black Mamba is the longest venomous snake in Africa The Brown tree snake is arboreal and terrestrial.

From hibernation.

Green Anaconda is the largest snake in the world.

Reptile black mamba is the longest venomous snake in Africa.

The zoo is closed to the general public.

You have to leave.


We got locked in.

We're going now.

The Anaconda is the largest snake in the world.

Help! Somebody help me! Stop, stop.

Please, please, I know you're upset, but just hear me out.

Don't touch me.

Why did we stop? I know what you saw back there, and I can explain it.

You knew Alison.

You knew her.

You pretended not to, and you're Yes, yes.

I know, I lied.

I'm so sorry.

I wanted to tell you so many times, but I was afraid.

I was afraid that you wouldn't forgive me.

I met Alison in college.

She lied about her age and I believed her.

I don't want to hear this.

I don't want to hear it.

I just want to get off.

Aria, please, just listen to me.

Nothing you say will change anything.

I don't even know who you are.

Yes, you do.

Yes, you do.

You wanted Alison dead.

You wanted her dead.

You thought you got her pregnant.

I never hurt Alison.

I was writing a book about her.

A true crime book.

A book? Yeah.

When I saw in the papers that she had gone missing, I I couldn't stop thinking about it.

I had to get to the bottom of the story.

Did you know who I was when we met? Yes, I did.

I knew who all of you were.

And that's why I applied to teach at Rosewood.

So that's what I was to you? I was research? When I saw you in the bar, I took advantage of an opportunity because I wanted to be a good reporter.

I wanted to be the guy that would do anything for the story, but I promise you though.

I didn't know I was going to fall in love with you.


I lied about a lot of things.

Ezra, don't! I lied about a lot of things.

But I have never lied to you, not once about how I feel about you.

When we started getting serious, I stopped writing the book.

I started my research back up again when we broke up and that's how I knew that Alison was still alive.

When I think about how I defended you to my family and my friends.

And the whole time you were you were using me.

I'm sorry, I'm such an idiot.

I'm such an idiot.

I'm a jerk.

But I swear, I'll burn this, I'll trash it.

Burn it? Burn it? Are you kidding me? I'm going to read this thing from cover to cover.

Aria, please don't.


No, I want to know what was worth destroying everything we had for.


No! I was going to say you missed half the movie, but that was like 20 minutes ago.

I'm sorry.

Kind of lost track of time.

Well, can we watch the rest? I don't mind being a little lost.

Well, you won't be.

Movie is about a creepy guy who makes creepy sculptures and acts creepy about it.

I'm gonna get a refill.

You want something? No, thanks.

Aria? Are you okay? Toby.

Hey, what are you doing here? Your mom was worried about you.

Why would my mom be worried about me? She called me, looking for you.

I wish you could have told me what was really going on, instead of me finding out this way.

Spencer? Is that you? I guess I'll give you guys some time to talk.

This is for you.

There was a whole dinner that went with it, but doesn't matter.

Wait, Toby.

Can you just wait a second? I wasn't trying to ditch you.

Goodbye, Toby.

Thank you for coming over.

Good night, Mrs.


Mom, why did you ask Toby here? You promised.

You promised you wouldn't go back to this again.

Go back to what? I don't know what you mean.

Spencer, stop it.


Griggs's office called, I know.

Mom, I'm sorry.

I can't go through this with you again.

I just don't think I have it in me.

It's not like last time though, I swear.

You didn't know what you were doing half the time.

And your father and I can't cover for you again, not with Radley on your resume.

What's that supposed to mean? I need to call your father.

Let him know you're okay.

It sounds like Toby had a beautiful evening planned.

It's too bad you missed it.
