We’ve been told that next week’s episode of Pretty Little Liars (Season 3, Episode 16: "Misery Loves Company") will blow us away, and after analyzing the promo, we think we can see why. Aria (Lucy Hale) is on the floor, Hanna (Ashley Benson) is trapped by “A”, and Spencer (Troian Bellisario) catches Toby (Keegan Allen) in the hoodie?! Here’s what we gathered from our frame-by-frame analysis of the promo for Episode 16:
“A” traps Hanna in a room full of mannequins. From what we know, Hanna is lured to a factory full of white mannequins on what she believes to be an interview, but when a black hoodie shows up, things quickly take a turn for the dangerous.
Aria makes a weapon. Aria feels the need to break a mirror, it appears in order to defend herself. From her father? From Meredith (Amanda Schull)? From “A”?
Aria isn’t looking so good. From all of the many Aria moments in the promo, it looks like her flu is taking over, which leads us to ask: Is it really the flu? Was there something in Meredith’s special tea? After all, we never saw Mer take a sip...
Alison’s (Sasha Pieterse) back. Speaking of Aria’s illness, it appears she’s also hallucinating … Alison to be exact. When Aria asks her ex-bestie if she sees “A”, Alison responds, “Everywhere I turn.” Is that a clue of some sort? Is she trying to tell Aria that she’s surrounded by “A” in her own home?
Byron (Chad Lowe) and the basement. When Emily (Shay Mitchell) and Hanna discover Aria, she appears to be passed out (drugged?) on the floor of her basement. And who opens the door at the top of the stairs? The father of the year himself: Byron.
Caleb (Tyler Blackburn) gets involved. Hanna’s beau is back, and it looks like he’s getting back in the game! As he puts it, “Some lies are worth the risk.”
Spencer discovers Toby?! Spencer says six words that stop a hoodied Toby in his tracks: “Is this what you’re looking for?” — and she's holding the "A" key. Unless he’s able to outrun her, it looks like Spencer could discover her man in the hoodie. Is this the moment we’ve been dreading (but also waiting for)?! And is this what Toby tells Mona (Janel Parrish) he’ll “take care of” at the beginning of the preview? Or is that what leads him to Spencer?
