The gig is up on Pretty Little Liars, but for whom you might think. In this sneak peek for Season 4, Episode 20 (“Free Fall”), Hanna and Emily are stressing about telling Aria the truth about Ezra when Aria beats the to the confession portion of their lunchtime convo: by spilling the beans about Spencer’s pill addiction.

“Look, I’ve been avoiding Aria all day,” Hanna tells Emily in the Rosewood High courtyard. She seems to be super stressed that they haven’t told their bestie they suspect her soulmate of being “A.”

But Hanna’s not the only one stressed: “Like I haven’t?” Emily counters. “I finished my Spanish homework in a toilet stall.” Yeah, times are tough for the Liars, but they have to tell Aria, right? The two then debate the issue.

“Are we sure this is a good idea? I mean, what if we tell Aria Ezra’s ‘A,’ and she hates us?” Hanna asks, mowing down on some string cheese. Emily keeps things practical in Spencer’s absence: “What choice do we have except to prepare for things to get ugly?” Cue Aria’s entrance. Apparently, she has been looking everywhere for her friends, and they haven’t exactly been making the search any easier.

“Finally,” Aria says as she takes a seat at the table. “Is there some cellular deadzone I don’t know about in this school? … I’ve texted you both like five times.” Emily and Hanna avoid eye contact, but Aria doesn’t seem to notice. She has bigger fish to fry like Spencer’s pill addiction. It seems that Ezra may have told Aria about his Spencer “concerns.” Presumably, in an attempt to invalidate Spencer’s imminent accusation against Ezra.

When Emily mentions she hasn’t seen the fourth Liar, Aria tells them: “Well, we need to find her and talk to her right now… I think we all know Spencer’s been a little extra intense and I just chalked it up to stress, but she’s not just stressed. She’s strung out.” And the other shoe has dropped. But will the other other shoe i.e. the Liars’ suspicions about Ezra also be dropped in this episode? (From the looks of the promo, yep!) And will the Liars confront Spencer about her pill addiction? Yikes! So many secrets, so little lunch time.


Do you think Spencer will fess up to an Adderall addiction? Do you think Aria will believe Spencer’s theory about Ezra? Sound off in the comments below!
