Ali’s playing a dangerous game when Pretty Little Liars returns with Season 5, Episode 10 (“A Dark Ali”), and the Liars are caught in the middle.


According to the synopsis for the episode, “Ali's games may have pushed her friends too far when an innocent man's life is put in the balance.” Although, we’re not sure how innocent this man is if he’s working with “A” — unless, he was blackmailed.

It adds, “The pressure is on for Alison to identify the man police have in custody for her kidnapping, but the Liars know if she does it would be sending an innocent man to prison and possibly walking right into an ‘A’ trap.” The Liars are obviously split when it comes to their affection for Ali. Hanna wants nothing to do with her, Aria is suspicious of her antics, and Spencer is collecting blackmail against her. Emily is the only Liar who seems to want to protect Ali from “A.”

In fact, Episode 10 will be a can’t-miss hour for the Emison fans, as Emily tries “to convince Ali not to play into ‘A's’ hand.” Unable to take anymore of Ali’s lies, “Spencer comes up with a plan B in case Ali decides to make the wrong decision.” Clearly, she’s not letting go of Noel Kahn’s photos anytime soon. Those pics not only put Ali in New York, they also negate her kidnapping story. If Spencer plans to hang that over Ali’s head, we’re sure it’s only a matter of time before the photos end up in “A’s” hands.

Meanwhile, fed up with all of the Ali drama, “Hanna tries to lead a normal teenage life.” Hopefully, this means she’ll drop the booze and pick up her books. We’re seriously afraid Hanna isn’t going to make it to graduation if she keeps the drinking up.
