But when Spencer gets home, she finds out that Melissa is staying for a couple days because she’s worried that Jason will do something crazy. Spencer immediately shows Melissa the feathers and is all, “I know you were the Black Swan and I know you didn’t lose the baby in June.” Wow, PLL, what? You didn’t want to drag out this Black Swan/Melissa thing for 5 more episodes? You guys are winning me over right now. Melissa doesn’t deny anything and admits that she lost the baby the day after she found Ian’s body. A question answered, everyone take a big ole shot! Melissa said that she tried to tell Spencer at Ian’s memorial, but then she saw Spencer had Ian’s phone and thought that Spencer was the one sending her those texts. She faked the pregnancy because she couldn’t deal with people finding out about it so soon after Ian’s death since she was getting a lot of attention. Spencer asks her why she was at the Ball and then Veronica (who’s there, all of a sudden) wants to know the same thing.
Hanna tells Aria over the phone that she’s going to tell Caleb about the new “A” when he comes over. Then Hanna gets a text from “A” saying that he/she’s everywhere and also sends her some photos of a Montecito EMT by a car wreck. Oh, dear.
Melissa tells Spencer and Veronica that the costume was on her doorstep one day with a note saying that she had to wear it to the ball or everyone would know about her baby. She couldn’t tell anyone and she was being blackmailed so she went to the ball and followed the directions of the note, which told her to distract Jenna. But Melissa freaked and ran out when she saw Spencer and her friends. How did she know it was them? It WAS a masquerade ball, after all. She assumes it was Mona because she hasn’t gotten anymore threats or anything and wants to put it all behind her. After Melissa goes upstairs, Spencer asks her mom who else knows that Melissa was faking her baby. Turns out both Spencer’s dad and Garrett knew, so Spencer wonders if Garrett’s blackmailing Veronica into taking his case. Veronica says that’s not the case: Turns out, Garrett’s public defender was putting together some defense witnesses and one of them was the P.I. that they hired to watch Melissa after Alison went missing. Even though Melissa had nothing to do with Alison’s murder, if a jury found out that they’d hired a P.I. and that Melissa faked her pregnancy, then they’d think Melissa was guilty of something. Like faking a pregnancy, for instance. Veronica tells Spencer not to tell anyone. Where the hell is Spencer’s dad?
Hanna’s looking at the photo when Caleb shows up, telling Hanna that his mom was in a car accident in Montecito. But she’s fine. Although she did say that she felt that someone was trying to run her off the road. Caleb asks her what she wanted to talk about, but she says it’s not a good time. Ooh, Caleb and his hippie hair are not happy. He says there’s no more “A” so why is she lying to him? He asks if it’s about Mona, but Hanna says it’s not and asks him to drop it. Caleb says that he can’t deal with her anymore — she keeps pushing him away and he hopes things will change, but they never do, and he’s out of patience and tired of only existing in “half of [her] life.” (The other half is cupcakes, I’m assuming.) He asks her to give him something, but Hanna doesn’t say anything. Caleb: “I’m done, Hanna.” Oh, suh-nap! Ashley Benson is really good in this scene, you guys. And the guy who plays Caleb, well . . . he’s . . . he’s in the room, too. Hanna is devastated.
Come on. We all know it’s number 1. Aria’s in her room when she gets a text from Spencer that reads:
Ella shows up for a chat. She was getting stuff for her apartment. Where the hell is Aria’s dad? Where are ANY of the dads on this show? Geez. Ella brings up the Mainline Mate stuff and part of her is angry, but she also realizes that Aria’s trying to help. Also Ella knows about Byron seeing Meredith again and she’s okay with it, mostly.
