Jenna’s reading a book in braille because, you know, old habits die hard. The other girls are discussing what Jenna’s game plan is and they all agree that Aria should talk to Jenna. Hanna wants to push a table out in front of Jenna (hee) and Spencer tells her she has the subtlety of a hand grenade. Hanna’s all, “Thank you!” like she doesn’t get it. Hee. You guys, I love Hanna. I would want to be friends with Hanna. But it wouldn’t work out because her life is so full of DUH-RAAAAAAAAMMMMMMMA! Spencer says Melissa’s coming home tomorrow and her mom will probably tell them about being Garrett’s lawyer. Right after Melissa’s shocking-except-not reveal that she had a miscarriage.
Ooooooooooh, Lucas is in trouble! And also, Lucas looks hot. I like angry Lucas.
“You get back here, you good-for-nothing Pacey Witter!”
Lucas sees Hanna and then flees. Lucas has stubble. Me likey. Hanna tracks him down in an empty classroom, because this is Rosewood High and there are a multitude of empty, unlocked classrooms. Hanna asks him about what’s going on; Lucas has a letter that he’s supposed to give to his parents about his bad attitude and bad grades, but instead of giving it to them, he just lights it on fire and throws it a trash can. Rebel! Hanna tries to put it out with a rolled-up magazine, because nothing stops fire like paper, but luckily Caleb shows up and puts it out with a bottle of water. Don’t worry, girls — his hippie hair was not singed. Credits.
Hanna talks to Caleb about Lucas over coffee. Does Caleb still live with Lucas? Or did he miss the air vents so much that he went back to them? I don’t know. Caleb says that Lucas is rebelling because he’s been a goody-goody. Oh. And Caleb adds that he hasn’t talked to Lucas since he moved out of Lucas’s house. Thank you! Thank you, PLL, for an answer to an unanswered question! Only 426 more to answer . . . Hanna asks Caleb to talk to Lucas and he will, but Hanna has to do something for him.
“Oooh, I hope it involves cup –”
“IT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH CUPCAKES. GOD.”
Caleb asks Hanna not to visit Mona any more and Hanna pretty much ignores his request.
Later, Aria’s agreed to be Jenna’s accompanist and Jenna tells her to come over after school. At lunch, the girls discuss Jenna and how they’re screwed if the police find all their coffin-keepsakes, so Aria needs to look for the other earring or other evidence at Jenna’s house. Em gets a text from Aria’s mom with her grade from the make-up test (let’s assume it’s actually an email to make things easier) and it turns out she got a 94%, which is weird, because Emily didn’t even finish the test. Em thinks that someone went into the school computer and changed her grade so it looks like she cheated. Or something.
In another empty classroom, Lucas is looking into a microscope, because why not? Caleb arrives to talk to Lucas but Lucas is not in a talking mood. Lucas says that Hanna’s not really worried about him. Caleb says that he knows that Mona is/was “A,” and Lucas is all, “That’s just the tip of the iceberg — there’s more under the surface.” Ooooh, broody! I like broody Lucas. He tells Caleb that icebergs roll over and display all the nasty gunk underneath, so Caleb should prepare himself.
Em goes to talk to Ella about the make-up test, explaining that she didn’t finish it and giving Ella her theory of someone changing the grade. Ella gets weird and is all, I want you to understand that the grade is accurate; just keep working. This is kind of creepy. What’s going on, you guys? Who blackmailed Ella or whatever? Was it Ezra? Was it Lucky Leon? Hmmmm . . .
Un-pregnant Melissa is sweeping up the fireplace when Spencer shows up. Melissa says she’s tired and then Veronica shows up, saying that she has to talk to both of them and breaks the news that she’s defending Garrett. Spencer and her mom argue back and forth with Spencer saying that Garrett’s guilty and Veronica saying that Garrett’s alibi or story or whatever is compelling and a good argument. Spencer asks Melissa to say something, but Melissa’s all, “Any interest I had in this ended three months ago.” You know, when her baby died. Allegedly!! Allegedly.
