I was pretty excited about Pretty Little Liars Season 4 Episode 20... until the stars and producer suggested that Ezra's reveal (the book writing) was the real truth.
What?!? Is this going to be another Toby situation?
It's too bad that Pretty Little Liars Season 4 Episode 21 didn't really distract much from the possible disappointment of the undoing the big EzrA reveal.
Not much happened other than Aria dealing with the aftermath of her Ezra confrontation and Spencer trying to kick her big pill addiction - while possibly discovering a deeply buried secret or completely cracking up.
1. Aria Remembers Garrett Reynolds
While looking for clues, Aria comes across old newspapers, including one with the headline about Officer Reynold's impending case.
2. Aria Seeks Answers
Aria seems determined to find answers in Ezra's possessions. Will she be satisfied with what she finds?
3. Aria with Ravenswood Evidence
Aria has come across more damning evidence, including the poster for the Ravenswood costume ball that sucked up Caleb and a photo of Wilden in uniform.
6. Aria Overwhelmed with Evidence
Aria is overwhelmed with evidence about Ezra and seems unsure what to do next.
7. Digging In or Digging Out?
Are the girls going to dig into the evidence with Aria or help get her out of the room and back to sanity?
8. Reinforcements Arrive
Reinforcements arrive to help Aria go through all of the evidence stacked up against Ezra. Can her friends help?
What bothers me most about the Ezra stuff is how much the story arc is following the Toby/Spencer one back in Pretty Little Liars Season 3. Again a liar finds out the truth about her significant other and then he disappears while she completely loses it and pushes away all of her friends in her anger.
It all seemed very repetitive.
There is one big difference, though: the Season 3 finale changed Toby from a villain to a protective boyfriend. It doesn't appear that Ezra is going to come out a hero here; he seems to be scheduling the release date for his book regardless of how it affects his relationship with Aria.
At least that's what we're lead to believe. It's possible the whole thing is a big diversion,and Ezra is really A. Or he's really meeting with his literary agent to tank the entire book. Honestly, it could be anything because the show's writers are never consistent, except that they consistently undo their revelations again and again.
We should probably prepare ourselves from some disappointment on the EzrA front.
Also, the fact that Alison is alive might become more common knowledge now that Paige has left a clue for the police. Was it right for her to tell the police after promising Emily she wouldn't?
The Spencer storyline seems to have the most potential for future enjoyment. Apparently CeCe saw Spencer and Alison fighting the night Ali disappeared and Spencer grabbed a shovel to threaten her. Did Spencer nearly kill Alison?
Spencer was apparently abusing the pills then (did we already know that?), so she has no memory of that fight. She only remembers telling the other girls that Alison was missing and she heard a scream. It seemed a little suspicious way back in the pilot, but now the show is going to explore it more.
Of all the liars, I think Spencer has the most potential to Ali's "killer." She's always under pressure and wound so tightly that she explodes with anger when in a disagreement with others. And Spencer seems to be prone to mental breakdowns.
Maybe she did accidentally or intentionally hurt Alison? Or maybe it's just the writer's next diversion?
Do you think Spencer hurt Alison that night?
