Spencer refuses to take Toby back, and it’s heartbreaking. Aria has also cut off Ezra, which is less heartbreaking. Ezra finds out about Jackie Molina’s blackmailing and decides to come clean to the Montgomery parents about his love for their daughter. They take the news badly, and even though we are not fans of this couple, we still felt bad for them in this scene. You should really watch it yourselves if you haven’t. Ezra got points for nutting up and telling the Montgomery’s. Mike hit Ezra in the face so that his dad wouldn’t. In general, it was pretty great.
Hanna has been spending time with Lucas while Caleb was in California with his mom. Caleb returned to town, much to Lucas’ disappointment, even though Caleb and Lucas are still friends (and living together). Also moving to Rosewood are Hanna’s dad, his new wife, and Kate. Gross. Yep, Hanna got the wedding canceled, but the marriage still happened at city hall once Hanna’s dad fixed the relationship.
Emily and A planned to meet alone in a greenhouse. Emily pretended that she and the other girls had evidence implicating A. Emily taunted A before revealing that she had nothing. The other three girls were late to the meet-up site, ruining everything. A attacked Emily, but the girls arrived long enough to break up the fight. They were too late to catch A and find out A’s identity though, naturally. A ran away, but not before being hit (lightly) with Hanna’s car. Amazing. The girls ended up with A’s cell phone, which A dropped. That should go to Lucas, right? He’ll hack that action. (Sidenote: um no, they should go to Caleb. Apparently the first blogger doesn't remember Caleb's mad phone-hacking skills).
This was an intense premiere worthy of the show. Let the countdown to catching A (at the end of this season) begin. We think this episode proved that Emily is hardly weak. Also, one of us has decided that A is tiny. Not an adult male, that's for sure.
Episode grade: A-
