The hunt for "A" continues on Pretty Little Liars Season 4, Episode 17 (“Bite Your Tongue”), and it sounds like both Hanna and Spencer are going to be doing everything in their power to make some headway into the mysteries that still plague the Liars.


If you need a refresher on what to expect, here's the official ABC Family synopsis of the episode:

Hanna’s new interest in crime novels helps her to come up with a plan to try and figure out whose body is in Ali’s grave. While Hanna is on her hunt, Spencer is working overtime to decipher the stories in Ali’s diary which she hopes will reveal the identity of Ali’s mystery man. But with both girls hot on the trail, will their work lead them straight into “A’s” path? Meanwhile, Aria is upset with the new friend Mike has made and Emily’s dad is concerned about her behavior.

Not only is Spencer working "overtime," but it looks like she might turn to study drugs to keep herself going. We have a feeling that won't end well...

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 17 officially starts (at 8 p.m. ET on ABC Family!).


8:01: Is Emily right? Is Spencer a control freak?

8:01: Oh, Mike. Such a teen.

8:02: What is with Mike's slicked back hair? Whev, he's still hot.

8:03: "Maybe we shouldn't refer to the dead guy as a random." 

8:04: Hi Mona. Fancy seeing you here.

8:04: Mona looks stunning, BTW. Love the hair

8:05: "We meet up after school and talk about stuff." How specific, Mike.

8:06: "Our parents broke themselves up." There is some truth there. 

8:07: Always nice to see Emily's dad. He means well. 

8:08: OK, so this conversation makes it seem like Ezra really might be taking some legal action against Maggie.

8:08: "People get what they deserve. Eventually." Sounds awfully sinister to us...

8:09: Oh hey, Office Holbrook. Missed you and your face.

8:10: "Every rock you turn over 'A' picks up and throws at Alison." Great line.

8:11: This Aria vs. Mona fight is excellent. Mona should be in every episode.

8:12: Another hottie returns! Hi Andrew. 

8:12: Spencer spaced on a test? Wow. Things are getting bad.

8:13: Mona and Ezra? Yes please!

8:17: Hanna likes to read the end first so she knows what clues to look for. Clever, given that she's trying to strengthen her deductive skills.

8:18: "It always comes down to the teeth." We have a feeling that will be important.

8:18: This guidance concealer is pretty cute.

8:19: "Mona's the devil." Yep. Not rude at all.

8:20: Oh, Mr. Fields. Don't confide in Ezra. Never confide in Ezra.

8:22: Of course Ezra immediately picks up the phone. What are you up to, mister?

8:23: Andrew thinks she's flirting. She's not. She wants his pills. Poor Andrew.

8:24: Well, if your dad didn't there was something wrong before, he sure as heck does now, Em.

8:24: Oh man, that hand print outside Em's window is creepy.

8:28: So, whoever Ali was seeing had thoughts about writing. Still sounds like Ezra to us...

8:29: This date likes boysenberry pie and beer at the Hart and the Huntsman bar, near Hollis. Noted.

8:30: Hanna has a gusty plan to find out more info about who's buried in Ali's grave. Go Hanna!

8:30: We hate seeing the Liars split up. You're stronger as a group, girls!

8:31: Wow, Aria is all sorts of confrontational this episode. Love it.

8:33: And who likes to hang out in the Hart and Huntsman? And order boysenberry pie? And is dashing away ASAP? Yeah, way to be suspicious, Ezra.

8:38: Aria's eye-shadow is really shiny. 

8:38: Go detective Hanna, go!

8:39: This Jesse guy is nice. Maybe too nice. He's an adult in Rosewood. Statistically, he's probably evil.

8:40: OH GOD "A" IS MESSING WITH HANNA'S TEETH. Yeah, we knew it was coming, but it's still really creepy.

8:41: So, was Ezra dating Ali? It sure seems like it.

8:42: Board Shorts Ale! Whoa. 

8:44: So, do you guys 100 percent think Ezra is Board Shorts, or do you think this could be a mislead? It would be a pretty huge coincidence that he had the same order, and Marlene King always says there are no coincidences in Rosewood...

8:48: "Act normal bitch." Wow this is scary. "A" sure is the master of technology. 

8:49: Did "A" go from operating on Hanna to messing with Emily? Are there two "A"s at work right now?

8:50: Ezra to the rescue!

8:51: Oh no! Will he be OK?

8:55: Emily's dad might have heart problems? Really? Can her life get any worse?

8:57: And tragedy brings them together again. 

8:59: "I told you, dead girls can't smile. Stop looking. - A" Wow.
