I gotta tell ya. I’m having a difficult time procession the last hour to write this recap properly. I think I’ve forgotten everything that happened because of the massive, and I mean massive reveal at the end of the episode.
The writers weren’t kidding. They went there.
Check out our recap of tonight’s Summer season finale episode of Pretty Little Liars 4×12 “Now You See Me, Now You Don’t.”
A Has Magic 8 Balls
The episode kicks off with A taking several visits to the post office. The first package the girls receive are a set of magic 8 balls. “If Hanna’s mom goes free, you’ll hear from me.” Emily says “Bring it, bitch!” The police drop all the charges against Ashley. Are the girls screwed? It is certain.
The next package contains a child coffin with a doll of Mona inside. A leads the girls to believe that Mona will be killed and they have to find her body or else.
Toby is doing his own sleuthing tonight. He discovers that Wren and Melissa have moved in together and Shana is sending them mail. He then follows Shana and she meets up with Mona. What the hell is going on?
Back To Ravenswood
The last package sends the girls to Ravenswood. The creepy town where everything is confusing. CeCe has been named as suspect number 1 in Wilden’s murder so the girls believe she has nothing to lose.
Aria is brought on stage during a magic show and I half expected her to disappear. Surprise! While the girls were watching Aria, Emily was abducted and thrown into a box, headed straight for a chainsaw.
The girls are shocked when they see two red coats in the warehouse. One is running away and the other is turning off the chain saw. Aria follows one and kicks her ass. That martial arts class really came in handy! She kicks the mask off and CeCe is revealed. Aria pushes her over the edge but is unable to prevent CeCe from falling. The girls assume she’s dead, turn their backs, and CeCe disappears.
Figures. They’re so stupid.
World War A
Spencer leads the girls to a room Red Coat Number 2 led them to. She believe it was Ali. It seems that this is A’s real lair. There’s a timeline for each girl with every relevant event that has ever taken place.
A has been tapping into the police so they are able to monitor them through alarms, security systems, etc. A has money and formed a corporation. Aria is shocked when they discover men’s clothing and a timeline for Alison. A has been watching Alison too.
The girls meet Mrs. Grunwald outside and she tells them to get the hell out of town for their own safety. She details the night she rescued Alison from being buried alive only to discover she had disappeared when they got to the hospital. She says Alison doesn’t want to be found and she doesn’t know she can trust the girls.
She thinks Alison is alive and that a man is after her. He was hoping the girls would lead him to Alison.
Cut back to the lair as A walks inside.
The camera pans to reveal the face…
IT’S EZRA!!!!!!!!!!!! EZRA IS A!!! THIS IS NOT A DRILL!! I’M SO HAPPY I COULD LEGIT CRY RIGHT NOW. PLEASE LET THIS BE TRUE MARLENE. DON’T DANGLE THIS IN FRONT OF ME ONLY TO TAKE IT AWAY.
Other questions from the night:
- Is Alison alive?
- Why is Ezra is angry? Is he board shorts?
- Is he working with Aria? Why did Mrs. Grunwald say that Alison couldn’t trust the girls? Why was Aria so keen to leave and change the subject? Could they be Bonnie and Clyde?
- Where is Caleb going?
- Why is Jake so tired?
- What are the other “bad” guys doing? Are they working for Ezra? Are they on their own A Team working against him?
- Is it just me or is Ezra like ten thousand times hotter now that he’s A??
- If Ali was pulled out of the ground, whose body did they find?
