Pretty Little Liars Clues: Breaking Down the the Video of the Night Maya Died

Pretty Little Liars Season 3, Episode 10: “What Lies Beneath” was an episode full of twists and turns, but the biggest OMG moment of all came from a video of the night Maya (Bianca Lawson) died, which was sent to Spencer (Troian Bellisario) via an email, presumably from Noel (Brant Daugherty).

With such an important piece of evidence, it's essential to pay close attention. So now that we've had a night to recover from the initial shock of seeing Maya on the video, we've gone back and watched all of the footage again. Here's what we can gather from repeat viewings.

Maya was at the Kahn's cabin the night she died. This is obvious, but hugely important. We know she showed up to the cabin on bicycle around 10:04 p.m. on April 12, and was still there at 1:14 a.m. on April 13.

So Garrett couldn't have killed her? According to the police report, Garrett (Yani Gellman) was seen in his car with Maya at 9 p.m. on April 12. But on the video we see her on a bike at 10 p.m. — which means she left Garrett's car alive. Even more notable: Garrett was arrested that night at midnight at Spencer's house, which means Maya was still alive after he was in custody.

Noel and Jenna (Tammin Sursok) were together and at the cabin at 1:14 a.m. They drive up to the cabin, kiss, and walk inside together. They are inside by 1:14:30.

Maya is jumped OUTSIDE the cabin at 1:14:45. Maya is pulled off screen by a mysterious figure in black just moments after Noel and Jenna went into the cabin, meaning neither of them could have been said mysterious figure.

It looks like Maya was trying to run away. In the moments leading up to Maya being pulled off screen, it looks like she's trying to get away from the cabin. She's walking quickly, and she looks over her shoulder like she's worried she'll get caught. This makes us think that maybe she wasn't staying at the cabin as a welcomed guest after all. Was she hiding out there without the Kahn's permission, perhaps sneaking around and trying to find some evidence? That would explain why she seems to dash away as soon as other people show up.

Jenna was faking being blind? Also of note: Jenna was faking being blind in the video footage, although we know she could see at that point. Was she hiding her sight from Noel? Was she faking because she knew the camera was there? Because she knew Maya was there? What's the deal?

What did you make of the video? Let us know in the comments below.
