Another Pretty Little Liars episode, another batch of burning questions we need answered. Season 5, Episode 4 (“Thrown From the Ride”) was a quiet episode, setting the action up for what is sure to be a killer 100th episode, but that doesn’t mean it didn’t leave us with some Qs. Here are our top 10 burning questions from this week’s ep!


How did Alison get that scar? Um, now we have questions about Ali’s missing two years. We thought it was all dodgy crawl spaces and wig-wearing, but now we think there may be more to the story. Is that scar self-inflicted or did someone hurt Ali? Could there be some truth to the presumed lie that Ali was kidnapped? Better yet, is it a distinguishing feature that might expose Ali as her twin sister?

Did Mrs. Hastings kill Mrs. DiLaurentis? We’ve never seen Mrs. Hastings this freaked out and she is, generally, a very high-stress woman. Still, she has always kept her cool, even in the most dire of scenarios. Could she be cracking because she is the one who killed Mrs. DiLaurentis? PLL is pushing Spencer’s dad as the killer way too hard for that to be the truth, right?

Is someone in Rosewood “playing possum”? Maybe we spend too much time looking for clues, but we can’t have been the only ones who wondered if the dead possum and Andrew’s suggestion that it might only be playing dead might have significance. Is someone we think is dead faking it? And, if so, who?

Who was watching Emily outside her house? There were some serious Paily feels in this episode, but don’t think we’ve forgotten that someone was creeping outside of Emily’s house late-at-night while Paily was chatting. Could it be Sydney, the new girl in town who has quickly ingratiated herself to Emily? Or perhaps it’s Mona?

Where’s “A”? Watching the Liars not get messages from “A” is almost creepier than watching them when they do. We’re worried that “A” is devoting all of his or her energy to something epicly devious, luring the Liars into a false sense of security, only to pull the rug out from under them when they least expect it probably in the 100th episode. What do you think “A” is up to?

Has Ali ever sent an “A” text? Was the show just messing with our heads when Ali almost signed her text to Emily “A” or is this a clue that Ali has sent an “A” text before? To us, it certainly seems likely, especially given the fact that so few people sign texts at all anymore. Suspicious!

Why did Mrs. DiLaurentis try to frame Spencer? Is it just us or does the story that Mrs. D. tried to frame Spencer for Ali’s not-death not add up? Why would Mrs. D. go out of her way to frame Spencer for a crime she didn’t commit? Sure, it makes some semblance of sense if she was doing it to protect whoever did commit the crime, but the investigation never seemed to get to that point. Is there a chance that Mrs. Hastings or, more likely, Mr. Hastings is lying about what went down two years ago?

Why does no one in Rosewood know Shana is dead? This could be a flaw in the writing rather than a clue, but we have to question how weird it is that no one in Rosewood is talking about Shana’s murder. We get it: a lot of Rosewood residents die, but this should still be on people’s radar. Mona floated the lie that Shana transferred back to her school in Georgia, but tell that to the internet coverage her funeral apparently got. Is someone in Rosewood spreading lies to cover for Shana’s death? How has no one caught on?

Why isn’t Andrew always on PLL? Guys, we love Andrew. Like a lot. He’s sweet, smart, and a total hunk. He also feels bad for dead possums and is the best friend ever to Spencer. Can he please join Team Liar? Thanks in advance, show!

Does Emily still have feelings for Ali? We have a feeling this burning question is going to be answered sooner rather than later, but we can’t stand the angst! We love that the Liars straight-up asked Emily if she was still into their no-longer-dead bestie and it felt totally real that Em admitted she has no idea. At this point, Em’s love life is almost as stressful as the “A” game. But in the best possible way.
