The annual Father-Daughter dance causes tension between two of our liars, Aria and Spencer, and their fathers. Spencer becomes increasingly suspicious of her father when she finds a receipt for a $15,000 check in his files. He later tells her that he paid a private investigator to find Allison because he worried that Melissa might be involved in her disappearance. Aria leaves the dance early to help Hanna with her mother, but not before she tells her father that she is not his little girl anymore. Emily's father helps her find out that Maya bought a bus ticket to San Francisco, but she may not have used that ticket. Meanwhile, Hanna tries to avoid involving her mother in the A-drama; however, Ashley Marin doesn't believe the story the liars concocted to throw her off the trail. She and Ella talk about the mysterious A and think about contacting the police.
