The next all-new episode of Pretty Little Liars promises to be another exploration of the craziness that is the Liars’ lives after Ali’s return to Rosewood. As has been hinted at in earlier episodes, life is not quite what the friends imagined it would be when they got their bestie back, and that’s without even taking into account the people who may or may not be about to expose Aria’s kill count. What did we learn from the Canadian promo for Season 5, Episode 4 (“Thrown From the Ride”)? Here are the nine most tantalizing tidbits.
Someone else may know about Shana’s death. The list of those who are in-the-know about Shana’s death — and Aria’s part in it — may have just grown. In the Canadian promo, we see someone named “Theatregirl” contacting Aria on the computer. Her message: “If it was me, I could never forget. It would haunt me for the rest of my life.” Who is taunting Aria? And is it someone who already knows, like Mona? Or does Aria have one more person to worry about?
Ali’s return isn’t how Emily imagined it would be. “I thought everything would feel like it did before, but it doesn’t,” Emily says in the promo, referring to what we can only imagine is life after Ali’s return (or, perhaps, life after “A”). Poor, Em. Doesn’t she know that life will never be as it was before?
Alison has a medical exam. In this sneak peek, we see Ali trying to avoid a police-mandated medical exam, but it looks like she ends up going. We see her in a hospital gown in the photo.
Ali is still keeping secrets. While in her exam, Ali tells someone, “Once you know something, you can’t unknow it.” Which known thing is she talking about this time. It’s getting hard to keep track of the secrets Ali’s keeping, and we’re sure there are lots more we don’t know about.
Paige is in this episode! It was great to see Paige and Emily interact in last week’s episode, but we still have lots of questions about where Paige’s allegiance lies. Is she part of Mona’s Army or is she with the Liars? Hopefully, we’ll find out in this week’s episode.
Rosewood High is not happy about Ali’s imminent return. In the promo, we see Paige telling someone “People are preparing for Ali’s return and it’s not with flowers and ‘Welcome Home’ banners.” Sounds like the town hasn’t yet warmed up to Ali’s presence, and things are only going to get worse as we near Ali’s return to school in next week’s episode.
Hanna may be “A”’s next target. Hanna is looking seriously freaked out in the promo. We see her alone in what looks like a dressing room or some kind of stall. She peers under a dividing wall to see someone standing just on the other side. Yikes! Is someone out to get our girl?
Mona is giving ultimatums. It didn’t take long for Mona to start breaking out the ultimatums. In the promo, she tells someone: “If you’re not with me, you’re against me.” Might she be talking to Hanna? Or, perhaps, Paige? And, whoever it is, would they dare to go up against Mona?
Spencer is shocked. The promo ends with Spencer letting out a shocked gasp. What does she see? And what ramifications will it have for our Liars?
