This is a live recap, so if you want to join us analyzing all the action and answers in tonight's episode, keep refreshing for the latest updates; we'll start recapping when the Season 4 finale officially starts (at 8 p.m. ET on ABC Family!).
8:01 - We knew it was Noel! He's totally helping Ali! We called that.
8:02 - OK, the Liars all hugging Ali is sweet. Well, all but Spencer. But she still wants Spencer's help.
8:03 - So Ali says she still can't come home. Sigh.
8:03 - "I'm ready to tell you guys everything." Aaaand we're off!
8:05 - Wow, we barely recognize CeCe. "I know who killed that girl" she says. Wow.
8:06 - CeCe says she's seen Ali more than once.
8:06 - Flashback scenes! Melissa barges in on Ian and Ali. She knows they're together. Ali uses the time of the argument to grab video files from the NAT club. So that's how she got her blackmail material.
8:08 - Ali thought Jenna was "A", and those videos would change the game. Only it turns out it wasn't Jenna.
8:08 - "Bitch can't see you, but I do. Tonight's the night I kill you."
8:09 - Everyone is worried because the girls are missing, and Holbrook is at the Hastings house. There is a photo of the Liars talking to Ali in Ravenswood.
8:10 - Melissa is back! "Surprise" indeed.
8:15 - Ali and Mrs. D argue over the Hastings. Mrs. D has "seen what they are capable of." Who is she "very worried" about?
8:16 - Ali had a call from Toby. She put sleeping pills in the Liars' drinks. Maybe she missed Spencer?
8:17 - Ali admits she wasn't always the best friend to them. "Wait for it Spencer. We'll get there."
8:17 - Ali works at a coffee shop type thing.
8:18 - Ali and Toby talked that night, he told her he was grateful that juvie got him away from Jenna. You can tell when he's telling the truth, so she knew he wasn't "A".
8:19 - Ezra! Yes!
8:22 - The cops are tracking the Liars' phones and car GPS. So they will find them soon.
8:23 - Melissa "ran into" Toby in London? Just...accidentally? No way.
8:24 - Helpful Noel. Aww. Noel, we love you.
8:25 - Ali claimed she and CeCe were roommates. Ali used Google to seduce him. Laughing so hard right now.
8:26 - "Sometimes lies are more interesting than the truth." Ezra wanted to write a story about Ali.
8:27 - Ali claimed to be 21? How could Ezra believe that? But they "didn't do anything," so at least there's that. He just didn't want her to get hurt. He says she won't see him around.
8:28 - Ali threatens Ian with jail. He says they never had sex, but she tells him she knows about his videos. She tells him she made copies. "There are things on here that could bring everyone down, including your family" Ian threatens back. Clearly freaked.
8:30 - Ezra is still looking for Ali. He just wants to help, to win Aria back.
8:35 - OK, so the know the Liars are in Philly. Race against the clock!
8:35 - "The police are asking pointed questions about Spencer. Do we still have an understanding?"
8:36 - OK. Here's the fight. Spencer did grab a shovel. She did go to attack Spencer. But she tripped and fell. Ali found her pills. That's why Spence didn't stay asleep.
8:38 - Spencer begging Ali not to tell anyone is really crazy. This moment is actually kind of sweet. Spencer is not the one who hurt Ali. Yay!
8:39 - Alison then met with Aria's dad. She told him about the tapes just in case he was "A".
8:39 - Someone hit Ali in the back of the head with the rock! It couldn't have been Spencer. Wow, Troian Bellisario is great here.
8:40 - Mrs. D. saw who did it... and buried Ali. God. Damn. Who could she be protecting?
8:46 - Sasha is killing this scene. So, who is Mrs. D covering for? Jason? A twin?
8:46 - OMG! Nerdy Mona picked Ali up off the side of the road. Awesome. So awesome.
8:47 - Actually, Sasha is killing this entire episode.
8:47 - So this is how Mona knows about "A". OMG! She's also the one to suggest Ali disappear in the first place! Crazy!
8:49 - No, wait? Is this an "A" lair? Was she "A" from the start? Earlier than she originally claimed? What the what?
8:50 - Aw, Ali giving Mona "how to be cool" advice.
8:57 - Oh, of course the cops are at the wrong place.
8:58 - OK, so they can't jump. What can they do?
8:59 - We've got it! "A" is Batman!
8:59 - And, Ezra's been shot! We totally so that coming.
