Read on for our recap of Pretty Little Liars 5×06: “Run, Ali, Run” below:
The episode picks up about a few seconds after the events of last week. The girls look down as their phones ring to see that A is indeed, back in their lives.
“Did you miss me, bitches? – A”
How funny would it have been if all this time it had been Ezra calling them bitches like a sassafrass? #WhatCouldHaveBeen
In case you were wondering, Jenna was not inside the house. Toby’s dad broke his leg but that’s it. With A back and more dangerous than ever, Alison has made up her mind. She wants to leave Rosewood and run away. And Hanna offers to help her. Especially after A sends her a frightening video of Ali’s mom being buried alive.
“I buried your mom the same way I watched her bury you.”
Spencer and her hot dad confront each other early on in the episode. He wants to know why his daughter and wife are leaving him and she is pretty straight forward that he needs to be honest. Where were he and Melissa that night? What are they hiding? He is adamant that he didn’t harm anyone and he and Melissa were at the lake to talk. THESE LIES. What’s the big secret? It better be good if they’re making us wait this long. Eventually, Spencer gets her parents to talk and her mom announces that she’ll be moving back home…but only because Spencer’s dad is moving out. :(.
With all of this going on, Spencer is still able to get back into Nancy Drew mode. She wants to figure out whatever she can about Bethany Young, the mystery girl who escaped from Radley and who was buried in Alison’s grave. She goes to visit her old friend Eddie, an attendant at Radley for any information he can give her. Very aware of the security cameras around them, he brushes her off. But this won’t be the last we see of him tonight.
Over at Ezra’s place, Aria and her paranoia are trying to convince Ezra to hide all of his files in her attic after that snoopy detective shows up asking questions about Shana. I would like to take this time to point out that Spencer seems to be the only one who remembers that Ezra deceived Aria for years. Bravo, Spencer.
While searching for a connection between Bethany and Mrs. Dilaurentis, someone drops off a twisted drawing of Mrs. D. The picture is signed Bethany. Ezra checks his security cameras on the hallway, BECAUSE YA KNOW, THEY’RE STILL UP, and they see that Eddie Lamb is the one who dropped it off. What does he know? Does this mean he’s in danger? Hoping to find out more, Aria signs up to volunteer at Radley. Wouldn’t Ezra make more sense?
And what about Paige? Someone knows that she snitched to Emily about Lucas and Melissa working with Mona because a dead rat is put in her locker. That scene was hilarious. A is not happy. A is gonna prove this.
A, or someone in a black hoody and a ski mask, breaks into Ali’s house and strangles her with her scarf. Emily breaks it up but of course, doesn’t rip off the ski mask or anything because all she has to defend herself with is a book. It’s time to walk around with some pepper spray or like, a stick. Anything.
All in all, one thing is clear. A doesn’t seem to want Alison dead and wants to make sure she stays in town. Why? What kind of game are they playing?
