Pretty Little Liars Season 4, Episode 14: 10 Burning Questions — What’s Up With Ezra and Mona?
We love all ofPretty Little Liars’ constant thrills and surprises, but at the end of every episode, it always seems as though we have more questions than answers — and that was especially true after the Season 4 winter premiere.
To that end, we’ve tackled the biggest questions from this week’s episode in order to figure out what’s really going on in Rosewood, and to pick up on any and all clues.
It’s pretty darn eerie that Sara — who disappeared from Cortland at almost the same time Ali vanished — has a story so similar to Ali’s. Given that Sara doesn’t sound like the nicest person, we’re wondering if she might be the Black Widow, whom we saw at Wilden’s funeral.
2. Is Ali’s twin in her casket?
It appears that Sara’s body is not in Ali’s coffin, given that Sara was seen by her friends after the body was found. That’s why we’re back to thinking that Ali has a twin, and it’s likely that the twin is in the box. And by the way, twin-in-a-box sounds like a not-so-popular children’s toy.
3. What’s in the cabin’s basement?
Remember how there was a guy locked in a basement in Desperate Housewives? We’re kinda wondering if there might be a similar surprise in store for the Liars behind the basement door in Ezra’s friend’s cabin. Maybe that’s where A’s lair is? Then again, maybe Ezra has Aria’s boyfriend Jake locked down there. Actually, we wouldn’t be too surprised if it’s the latter.
4. Why did Ezra give Aria the cabin key?
It seems sweet that Ezra gives Aria the key to his friend’s place — although we can’t imagine that Ezra’s friend appreciates Ezra just handing out his cabin key all wily-nily. But given that Ezra might be “A,” we’re wondering if there’s a sinister reason why he gave Aria the key, like he wants to get her in trouble there somehow.
5. What is going on between Ezra and Mona?
Ezra and Mona clearly have some kind of relationship that we don’t yet know all about, judging from their incredibly cryptic conversation this week. Do they both know that they’re each part of the “A” team, and maybe they’re competing to have control of it? Or are they both teaming up to take down “A”?
6. Why does Mr. Hastings suddenly want to shut down Radley?
Spencer’s pops has never been the kind of guy whom you’d buy a “World’s Greatest Dad” mug for. Still, we were surprised by just how sketchy he got this week, as he claims he wants to shut down Radley in order to do what’s best for his family. But why does he really want to shut it down? And which family member is he trying to protect, like maybe Melissa or Jason?
7. What will happen next in Hanna’s love life?
We still can’t accept that Hanna and Caleb are over. Life just isn’t fair sometimes, is it? But we like that they at least split up on an upbeat note — and we suppose that Caleb and Miranda could be cute together. We also are expecting Hanna to find a new guy soon, which makes us wonder if either Travis or new hottie cop Detective Holbrook will be the lucky guy.
8. Does Mrs. DiLaurentis know that Ali is still alive?
Ali’s mom claims that Ali visited her in a dream, but is she telling the truth? After all, the fact that Mrs. D changed Ali’s bedsheets makes us think that Ali is staying there. We also wonder if her mom has an ulterior motive for hiring Ms. Marin at the real estate firm. And why is Spencer’s dad so afraid of Alison’s mom?
9. Who opened the basement door at the end of the episode?
This certainly isn’t the first time we’ve seen “A” wearing Converse, as when “A” lifts open the basement door at the end of the episode. One person we know who has worn Converse before is Lucas. So could Lucas be the “friend” of Ezra’s who owns the cabin? Plus, it’s fishy that there is a painting of a train in the cabin, given the previous Ghost Train shenanigans.
10. What’s in Ali’s diary? And will Ali and Emily date?
We continue to like Paily more and more. But with Emily talking about Ali and how they kissed — not to mention the chance that Ali wrote about Em in her diary — we have a feeling there might be more Emily-Ali romance brewing in the future. That said, we’d be worried about what kind of revenge Paige — or should we say, Pigskin — might enact if this indeed happens.
