Ashley Marin is one of our favorite Pretty Little Liars parents, but it looks like she's gotten herself into a real jam recently, and this sneak peek of Season 4, Episode 3: "Cat' Cradle" just makes her situation seem even worse.

In this clip from the episode, Ashley accuses Hanna of "spying" on her. See, it turns out Ashley lied about going to some play, and Hanna is freaking out.

"Mom, I don't care about the stupid play, but why would you lie about it?!" she exclaims.

Ashley's response is not exactly reassuring: "Do not ask me any more questions." Then she tells Hanna not to lie if someone asks her about where Ashley was. "Just don't say anything."

Uh-oh. It sounds to us like mamma Marin could be in big trouble.

Here's the official synopsis of the episode.  

Hanna worries that her mother is keeping a dangerous secret and is determined to protect her at all costs, which leads her to an uncomfortable meeting with Detective Holbrook. A clue in Ali's things leads the Liars to a creepy mask maker, who takes a shine to Emily and may have ties to another Rosewood resident. Spencer and Toby continue their search into a painful chapter of Toby's past and Melissa returns to Rosewood.
