The return of “Pretty Little Liars” is full of answers…sort of.

The season 4 premiere, “A is for A-l-i-v-e,” kicks off just seconds after the cliffhanger conclusion of season 3 when the Liars see something really big and scary  in Wilden’s trunk. Turns out it was just a dead pig.

But, the girls eventually discover that the pig is code for cop –  Wilden is dead! And he didn’t drown. He was shot multiple times! Sure looks like the Liars are going to be framed for his murder. Hanna’s mom’s phone has been planted inside Wilden’s casket and” A” managed to videotape the four girls and Mona with Wilden’s car the night he was apparently murdered.

In terms of answers, Mona has a few including:

1.) Mona put Wilden’s car in Hanna’s garage, but that was the last she saw of it.

2.) Shauna knew Jenna before she came to Rosewood and both are both afraid of Melissa.

3.)When CeCe came to Radley Mona thought she was Ali.

4.) Lucas gave Emily that massage.

5.) Mona recruited Toby.

6.) Mona didn’t push Ian off the bell tower.

7.) Wilden was the Queen of Hearts and Spencer’s sister (maybe) almost killed Aria.


After a rough season 3, Spencer seems back to her old self. She and Toby are back together and searching for clues about the identity of red coat. Yet, despite their relationship renewal, Toby is still hiding things from Spencer – like a text he receives from “A” about his mom. Why?


Ezra and that darn Rosewood High job. It’s really made Aria’s life pretty dreadful. She’s having daydreams that he’s being arrested for having sex with a student! After that nightmare, she officially breaks it off with Ezra. Thank god!


Hanna is full of good one-liners this episode, like “Mona is like Hannibal Lecter smart,” which is precisely why Hanna tries to befriend her enemy – Mona. Poor Mona sees right through it and eventually gives Hanna the video chip she is desperate for.


Paige convinces Emily to come with her to Stanford. “Don’t you want to live in a place where you are not afraid of the dark?” Paige asks Emily. Who wouldn’t say yes?

They are completely in love with one another, which is nice but can only mean that “A” out to get them. As for Ali’s mom moving back to town, Emily is suspicious. Wait till Spencer tells her about the evil eye Mrs. D is giving her!
