With only one episode left until the Season 4 summer finale, we knew the penultimate episode of Pretty Little Liars was going to be intense — but we had no idea our Liars were in that much dAnger at the Rosewood High Hoedown. Not to mention, another member of the "A" team was revealed, and the pieces of the "A" puzzle are starting to come together.
But that's not all that went down in Rosewood this week! Read on for Wetpaint Entertainment's review Season 4, Episode 11 ("Bring Down the Hoe"), and then rate it yourself!

CeCe Drake is not Red Coat — come on, did you really believe she ever was a serious suspect? — but she is on the "A" team. There's no question that she's up to something, especially after Season 4, Episode 11. Not only is she involved with the "A" team, but she was in a room full of info on Ali and a red coat (OMG), and clearly was working with someone else who she talked to on the phone. She also donned a black hoodie to spy on Aria and Ezra. All signs point to "A" team involvement, though obviously that could be misleading.
In fact, when she was on the phone saying that she didn’t want to go back to Rosewood — just who, exactly, was on the other end of the line, commanding her to go, anyway? Could it have been Red Coat? And since we know Ali and CeCe used to be frenemies, could they be working together again?
Meanwhile, Spencer isn't OK with Spencer's communication with "A." She thinks he's being played by the master puppeteer, but Toby is desperate for answers about his mom's death. And when Toby finds out Spencer told the Liars about his heartbreaking secret, he doesn't take it well. In fact, he storms off in search of Doctor Parker's old car. Luckily, Caleb is there to diffuse the situation and prevent Toby from getting arrested — because obviously, "A" called the cops on Toby.
Speaking of Caleb, he continues to be the best boyfriend ever to Hanna. He's on a mission from Ashley to bring her to the hoedown, but what was supposed to be a fun night turns into yet another mystery as gas station attendant Travis, who's been following Hanna, confesses the truth about what happened the night Wilden was murdered. Ashley was there — but she drove off before a mysterious blonde entered the scene and the gun was fired. Hanna ultimately convinces Travis to come clean to Officer Tanner, which will hopefully get Ashley (and Mona!) off the hook for Wilden's murder — and get Tanner on the hunt for this mystery blonde.
But the biggest revelation of the night came when Emily remembered a story Ali told her: she used to break up with other people's boyfriends (of course she did). In fact, when she broke up with one guy, a psycho pulled a gun on her. Emily thinks the psycho was Wilden — and his girlfriend (or, ex) was CeCe. Maybe Wilden was still obsessed with CeCe, and the only way to escape him was by killing him. So did CeCe kill Wilden?
Last, but certainly not least, Aria asks Jake to the hoedown, and just when you think these two crazy kids are going to live happily ever after, Aria finds out the truth about what happened between Ezra and Maggie — and she arrives at Ezra's doorstep to talk about it. She even holds his hand! Ezria is definitely one step closer to reuniting.
