Emily, Hanna and Spencer are concerned for Aria as they watch their friend crumble after learning shocking news about Ezra. Not knowing what is true or what to trust, Aria goes looking for answers, not wanting to believe this revelation to be true. While concerned for Aria, Spencer is not doing so well herself. Trying to prove to her parents and Toby that she can kick the habit on her own, Spencer has to be careful because one misstep could send her to rehab. But can Spencer really rein it in, or will her constant curiosity and drive be her undoing?
Meanwhile, Paige has had enough with Emily’s secrets and is determined to stop it.
This is a live recap, so if you want to join us analyzing all the action in tonight's episode, keep refreshing for the latest updates; we'll start recapping when Season 4, Episode 21 officially starts (at 8 p.m. ET on ABC Family!).
8:01 - Spencer wants to know how Ezra thinks he can solve the murder if the cops can't. Come on. We all know Rosewood PD is useless.
8:02 - "It's simple: He never really loved me." Lucy Hale is really selling Aria's devastation.
8:03 - Flashback to when Aria and Ezra first met. How weird is this now that we know for sure that he knew who she was?
8:04 - For once, we actually think the Hastings are both acting like proper concerned parents, and not totally sketchy people with a lot to hide. They seem truly worried about Spencer.
8:06 - Hi Travis! You're cool and all, but now that Ravenswood is cancelled we have even less interest in you. Is Caleb coming back, yet?
8:07 - Travis's dad is in trouble. Sad times.
8:08 - Emily has a task: get Ali's money to Wallingford. Spencer is skeptical.
8:09 - Oh, Aria. Trying to talk to Ezra in school is not a good idea. You are not fine,
8:14 - "You look like crap." Toby, telling it like it is.
8:15 - Paige is smart. She knows there are secrets being kept.
8:17 - WTF. Ezra is even more stalkery than we ever thought.
8:20 - This is painful to watch, but good on Aria for investigating herself.
8:20 - OK, so ripping his apartment up is maybe not the smoothest move. But can you blame her?
8:26 - Wow. She really ripped that apartment to pieces.
8:27 - Never leave clues behind, guys! Spencer has it right.
8:29 - "P.I. who followed Spencer?" Jeez. Ezra knows everything.
8:30 - Oh, Spencer, no.
8:31 - We're glad Paige isn't taking Em's lies sitting down. Threatening to go to the police, however, is not cool.
8:32 - Aaaand bombshell!
8:36 - Aria is getting the Spencer treatment; she's upset, so for once her makeup isn't flawless.
8:37 - Paige bringing the anit-Ali POV. We like it. "She faked her death for the last two years. She's definitely still like that!"
8:38 - "If anything happens to Ali, I'd never forgive myself. Or you." Wow.
8:39 - Well, at least Holbrook didn't return the kiss. We hope he, at least, realizes he is too old.
8:40 - OMG. Did Spencer kill Ali?
8:45 - "Did you hire him to follow Melissa, or me?"
8:48 - So Ezra's book is getting published? That's a whole never level of messed up.
8:49 - Troian is so, so good.
8:51 - Ezra should totally go to jail. Do it, Aria! (Yeah, we know she won't)
8:56 - Em's outfit is great.
8:56 - This sucks. We can understand where both Paige and Emily are coming from, and it still hurts.
8:58 - Wow. Aria really has "come undone."
8:59 - Oh wow, Paige.
