PLL Actress Tammin Sursok Spills Major Spoilers for Season 5: Twins and “A”

Tammin Sursok (Jenna Marshall on Pretty Little Liars) gave us some major spoilers about season 5 in an interview with The Daily Edition in Australia.  Spoiler alert!

Expect some major twists and turns to come our way.  Tammin says that we will find out who “A” is, only to find out it isn’t really “A” after all. 

And, get ready to be shocked, Tammin says that someone has a twin sister.  Tammin doesn’t give us any more details, saying that she can’t give too much away.

Seems like Tammin might be talking about Shana as the character that we wrongly assume is “A”.  So maybe the liars shouldn’t be so quick to dismiss Aria’s fears of “A” as paranoia. 

And who has a twin sister?  Although the Ali-has-a-twin theory is frequently talked about, from previous interviews with the cast and crew of Pretty Little Liars, it seemed like they weren’t going down that path.  So maybe another character has a twin sister?  Jason DiLaurentis?  Or maybe Melissa Hastings? 

Which Pretty Little Liars character do you think has a twin sister?

Recap of “Surfing the Aftershocks” PLL Episode 5x03

This week on Pretty Little Liars, a funeral is held for Ms. DiLaurentis, there’s a new girl at school and Hanna has an identity crisis.

Ali curls up in bed after finding her out her mom is dead.  Her friends ask if she is okay.  They offer to get her food and water.  Ali stays in bed without responding.  Ali’s dad asks the girls to leave Ali alone.  She’s been through a lot.  Jason agrees with his father and says the girls should all leave.

The day of the funeral, Hanna offers to help Ali get dressed.  Ali tells Hanna to go downstairs without her.

Downstairs, Mr. DiLaurentis tells Jason that he doesn’t want police or press at the funeral.  Jason tells him that he already took care of it. 

Hanna joins her friends and Aria ask how Ali is doing.  Emily pointedly looks at Jason when she says that Ms. DiLaurentis was murdered.

Spencer tells them that it couldn’t have been Jason.  She saw his face when the body was discovered.

Aria, worried about “A”, says that a dog finding a buried body sounds like something “A” would arrange.  Spencer reassures Aria by telling her that dogs dig.  There’s nothing unusual about that.  Emily tells Aria that “A” is gone.

Spencer wants to focus on dealing with Mona, who knows that the kidnap story is fake.  And that’s not the only person they need to worry about.  Aria, thinking that Spencer is talking about Noel, says that Noel will do whatever is best for himself.  Spencer says that she wasn’t talking about Noel.

Ali comes downstairs and everyone stares at her.  Ali isn’t wearing the same black dress that the girls helped her pick out.  Spencer says the dress isn’t Ali, but she’s seen it before.

Ali’s dad, upset, asks why Ali is wearing that dress.  Ali says that she wanted to wear one of her mom’s dresses so she could feel closer to her.  Ali’s dad demands that she change the dress.  Jason tries to stop his dad, but Ali’s dad insists that she put something else on.  Jason, trying to stop the fight, tells his dad that it’s late.

Ali asks her friends why her dad is so angry.  Spencer tells Ali that she's wearing the same dress that her mom wore to Ali’s funeral.

At school Emily, Aria, Spencer and Hanna are called into Principal Hackett’s office.  Principal Hackett acknowledges that the girls have had a stressful week and he is relieved that they are back home safe. 

However, things will be different now.  The school will protect the girls from the press, but there are limits to what they can do.  Principal Hackett wants to know that the girls will do what they can to keep the disruptions to a minimum.  Hanna promises him that he won’t even know they are there.

Out of Principal Hackett’s office, Spencer says that the principal obviously wishes that they transferred schools.  Emily thinks that maybe they shouldn’t have come back to school.  Spencer doesn’t agree.  She believes that they need to act like things are normal.

Hanna can’t believe Spencer used the word “normal”.  Ali’s mom was killed while the girls were in New York and now they are stuck in one of Ali’s biggest lies ever.

Emily knows that they can’t pretend forever.  Someone is going to connect all this to Shana.  Hanna thinks that someone would probably be Jenna.

Spencer is more worried about the people who already know Ali was lying about New York.  Emily asks if Spencer means Noel and Mona.  Spencer also adds Ezra to the list of people to worry about.  Spencer pointedly looks at Aria. 

Spencer tells Aria that someone has to talk to Ezra and make sure he keeps quiet about what really happened.  Aria is quick to say that it isn’t going to be her.  Ezra is alive and safe, but the two of them are over.  Aria says they can ask her to do anything else, but they can’t ask her to talk to Ezra. 

Emily tells them that Mr. DiLaurentis kept the cops away before the funeral.  Now that it’s over, it won’t take long for the cops to start punching holes in Ali’s kidnap story.  When that happens, they need something real to give to the police to explain why Ali lied and why they all backed her up. 

Hanna suggests that they tell the cops who hit Ali the night she went missing and who killed Ms. DiLaurentis.  Hanna and Emily are positive that it is Jason.

Spencer is not sure it was Jason.  She saw how shocked Jason was when they found Ms. DiLaurentis’s body buried in the backyard.

Emily and Hanna refuse to listen to Spencer.  They insist Jason tried to kill Ali.  They can’t think of any other person Ms. DiLaurentis would cover up a murder for besides her own son.

Hanna can’t believe that Spencer doesn’t believe them, but Emily reminds her that Jason is Spencer’s half-brother.  Emily wants Hanna to go with her to Philadelphia after school.  She wants to look at the apartment Jason went to.  Hanna says that she can’t go.  She has to take Ali to the funeral home.

Mona welcomes Aria back to school.  Mona’s been passing around a get well card for Ezra and wants Aria to sign.  She asks if Aria knows what happened to Ezra in New York.  Aria says that Ezra was mugged.  Mona, showing that she knows everything that goes on, tells Aria that Ezra was shot.  However, he’s back now recuperating.

Aria had no idea Ezra was back in Rosewood. 

Mona pushes Aria to sign the get well card.  She says Aria should sign for the sake of appearances.  They need to be aware of how others see them.

Hanna joins them, saying that she heard Mona was floating a get well card around.  Hanna signs the card and asks if Mona’s going to give him the card with candy.  Mona says that Ezra was shot in the stomach, so she thought flowers might be better. 

Mona asks what it will be like when Ali comes back to Rosewood High.  Ali will pick up where she left off.  Ali’s got quite a story to tell.  All that drama, anger and suspense.  It couldn’t be more excited if she made it up.

Hanna asks Mona if she’s seen Noel Kahn.  Mona’s sure Noel is around somewhere getting into mischief.  Aria tells Hanna that Mona said Ezra was back in Rosewood.

Emily drops her notebook in the hallway and Paige picks it up.  Paige says she’s sorry about what happened to Alison.  Emily asks if she’s sorry about anything else.  Paige doesn’t answer.

Emily sees a new girl staring at her.  Emily expresses her frustration at every one staring at her.  Paige says the new girl is on the swim team, so she’ll take care of it.  Emily tells her not to bother and goes to her locker.

Mona comes up to Paige and says that it’s nice to have Emily back.  She tells Paige that she hasn’t signed the card for Ezra yet.

The new girl continues to stare at Emily.  Annoyed, Emily goes over to her and tells her that people have been staring at her all day.  Take a good look and move on.  The new girl tells Emily that she was looking at all the swim trophies.  Emily’s name is on all trophies.  The new girl introduces herself as Sydney Driscoll. 

Emily apologizes for shouting at her.  Sydney tells Emily she thought she’d be taller.  She figured that was why Emily always won at swim meets.  Emily says being taller helps, but not as much as people think.  

Sydney heard that Emily doesn’t swim anymore because she hurt her shoulder.  Emily must miss it.  Emily admits that she does.  Sydney begs Emily to help her with her swimming.  She wants Emily to watch her swim for fifteen minutes and tell her what she thinks.

Spencer stands at her bedroom window and watches the DiLaurentis house.  Melissa comes up behind her and tells her not to get caught looking.  Spencer asks if Melissa thinks someone might throw a rock.  Melissa says it’s a possibility, since the DiLaurentis family hates the Hastings family enough.

Spencer, thinking Melissa is being overly dramatic, says that they aren’t feuding families like the Hatfields and McCoys.  Melissa thinks of them more as the Borgias and Medici family, which ended nasty with a lot of matricides.

Spencer points out that Melissa suspects Jason killed his mother.  Melissa doesn’t deny that.  She says people are capable of all sorts of things, under the right pressure.

Melissa asks why Spencer sent Toby to London and Spencer tells her that she didn’t.  Toby went on his own. 

Now it’s Spencer’s turn to ask Melissa questions.  She asks why Melissa lied about seeing Toby in London.  Melissa thinks that, on a practical level, there’s no difference between her seeing him and knowing he was there.  She lied to keep Wren out of things.  Mom and dad are worried enough without her dragging Wren back into things.  Spencer asks if their parents are more worried about Melissa or herself.

Melissa suggests that Spencer start worrying about herself.  Spencer brought Ali back and Melissa wishes that Spencer had left Ali where she found her.  She warns Spencer to stay away from Ali and her family.

Spencer points out that Jason is related to them.  Spencer thinks blood is thicker than water, but Melissa observes that blood can also be very slippery. 

Ali and Hanna go to the funeral home together.  Ali hates funeral homes.   Her mom wanted her to understand the fragile nature of life, so she dragged Ali to relatives’ funerals all the time.  Ali looks at a painting on the wall and bolts out of the room. 

While Ali is gone, the funeral director comes in and apologizes for the wait.  The funeral director, based on the description he was given of Ali, mistakes Hanna for Ali.  Ali comes in and Hanna points him in Ali’s direction.  Ali, making a dig at how Hanna used to look, says that it used to be a little easier to tell them apart.  Hanna stares at her reflection in the mirror and has a flashback.

Flashback:  Hanna is sitting outside the bakery, staring at a missing person flyer for Ali.  Mona comes up and asks how Hanna is doing.  Hanna says she’s okay.  She looks down at the cupcake wrappers in front of her and goes to throw them away. 

Mona says it’s not good that Ali’s been gone for two months.  The longer a person is missing, the less likely they are to come back.

Hanna notices that Mona isn’t wearing glasses anymore and says that Mona looks different. 

Mona asks how Hanna would look if it was Hanna on the missing person flyer.  Hanna says that they would probably put a blank space instead of a picture. 

Mona says that if Ali is really gone, someone has to take her place.  She asks Hanna if she wants to know the secret to becoming unforgettable.

Spencer and her dad look at the police tape in their backyard.  The yard is still an active crime scene.  Spencer’s dad asks how Spencer feels about selling the house.  Spencer reminds him that they would have to inform the buyer of any mold, termites or dead bodies.  Spencer’s dad says whether they stay or go, he is finished with the DiLaurentis family.

Spencer says that they can sell the house and move, but they will always be connected to the DiLaurentis family (referring to Mr. Hastings being the father of Jason).  Mr. Hastings says that complicated problems have simple solutions.

Spencer tells her dad that Melissa thinks Jason killed Ms. DiLaurentis.  Mr. Hastings doesn’t seem to be concerned about Jason, even though they are talking about his own son.  Mr. Hastings says it’s the police’s job to find out who the killer is. 

Spencer tells her dad to stop Melissa from pointing the police in Jason’s direction, but Mr. Hastings thinks it is a good thing if the police are looking anywhere other than their house.  Annoyed, Spencer tells her father to forget about selling the house.  They should just put a koi pond out back, since someone already dug a hole.

Aria goes to Ezra’s apartment and is about to knock, but she walks away.  The door opens and Ezra comes out and sees Aria.  Aria goes into his apartment.

Ezra is walking with a cane.  He has a health care professional that checks in on him.  She’s pretty nice, she says he is her favorite gunshot victim.  Aria doesn’t respond. 

Ezra knows that he promised he wouldn’t come back, but he doesn’t have anywhere else to go.  Aria asks how he feels.  Ezra feels like a turkey that’s been carved up and sewn back together.  Nothing feels like it’s in the right place.  His counselor says its mind-body disorient and it should go away.

Ezra says he heard Ali’s kidnapping story on television.  He asks if that’s the story they have to live with it.  Aria says for now it is.  Ezra shakes his head.

Aria asks if he knows about Ms. Dilaurentis being murdered.  Ezra says he thought Shana did it, but the timing doesn’t work out. 

Ezra says he had everything backwards.  Once he knew Shana was following the girls and he saw her in New York dressed in all black, then he knew she was “A”.  Ezra asks if Aria has heard from her.  Aria says no.

Ezra tells Aria to be careful, since Shana is clearly still out there.  He stresses that all the girls need to be careful.  Aria tries to leave, but struggles with Ezra’s new door lock.  Ezra helps her open the door and thanks her for coming and letting him see her.  Aria admits that she wanted to see him, too.  Aria hears Ezra lock the door behind her.

In the locker room, Sydney tells Emily that she watched videos of Emily swimming.  Sydney wants to match Emily’s stroke rate, but Emily tells her that it won’t work with her ratio.  Sydney has no clue what Emily is talking about, so Emily helps measure Sydney’s ape index.  Paige joins them to help out. 

Paige says that Sydney doesn’t have long arms, so she shouldn’t copy those who do.  Paige says that Emily has great arms.  Emily tells Sydney to adjust her stroke rate. 

Sydney asks if Emily and Paige have spent a lot of time together training.  Emily is quick to say no.  Paige says they have spent time together outside of the pool, but Emily is quick to refute that.  Sydney, sensing the tension in the room, quickly leaves.  Emily storms out and leaves Paige alone in the locker room.

Mona’s sitting by herself at school.  As Hanna watches her, she remembers back when Mona helped Hanna transform her image.

Flashback:  Mona and Hanna are standing in front of a mirror in Hanna’s bedroom.  Mona tells Hanna that she needs a new wardrobe to go with her new silhouette.  Mona pulls a blue top out of Hanna’s closet.  Hanna tells her that is Ali’s shirt.  Ali left it there after a sleepover.  Hanna’s sure it won’t fit.  Mona insists that Hanna try it on.  Hanna’s shocked that it fits.  Mona says its like it was made for her.  Mona tells Hanna that everything’s better with a friend.

Aria and Ali meet up.  Ali asks Aria what Ezra said.  Aria tells her that Ezra isn’t going to contradict Ali’s kidnapping story.  Ali asks if Ezra knows about Shana.  When Aria says no, Ali tells her that it’s better if Ezra doesn’t know.

Aria tells Ali that Mona thinks Ali’s going to return to Rosewood High.  Mona could create trouble if Ali returns.  Both Mona and Ezra know that Ali wasn’t really kidnapped. 

Ali says that Ezra and Mona don’t look at the world in the same way.  Ezra's not a bad guy, he’s just too romantic for own good. That’s probably why Aria fell in love with him.

Aria tells Ali that she doesn’t need an analysis of her personality.
Aria hands Ali Ezra’s manuscript.  Aria tells Ali that she can keep it or burn it.  She doesn’t care.  

Ali reminds Aria that Shana tried to kill Ezra.  Shana would have killed all of them if Aria didn’t stop her.  Aria isn’t comforted by hearing that and she leaves.

Emily and Hanna go back to Philadelphia to look at the apartment Jason visited.  They run into the same guy who scared them away last time.  The girls tell him that he makes a good watch guard.  They talked to the pizza shop owner across the street.  They know he orders 2-3 pizzas all the time.  What are all those pizzas for?

They tell him that they are looking for a friend, Jason.  They need to make amends for something.  They know he was there when he claimed he was getting sober at Clark.  Hanna demands to know when Jason was at the apartment.

Spencer goes next door to see Jason.  Jason’s packing a suitcase.  He doesn’t have any reason to stay.  The funeral is over and his dad doesn’t need him.  If someone needs to contact him, they’ll find him.

Jason says that his mom had too many secrets and those secrets are what killed her.

Jason says that sometimes he’ll see Alison sitting at the piano or he’ll catch a glimpse of her going around a corner upstairs.  This is what it’s like to live in a haunted house and he doesn’t like it.  

Spencer shows Jason the printout of the last email Ms. DiLaurentis sent.  She doesn’t want to tell him how she got it, but Jason already knows Hanna gave it to her.

Hanna and Emily drive back to Rosewood after learning that Ms. DiLaurentis didn’t send the email to Jason.  They now know that Jason was at the apartment (dry house) in Philadelphia with half a dozen people the night Ms. DiLaurentis was killed.

Hanna is a little disappointed because now they don’t have any suspects. 

Flashback:  Hanna remembers walking down the school hall for the first time after her makeover.  Every one was staring at her.  Mona grabbed Hanna’s hand and they walked hand-in-hand down the hall together. 

Back in the present, Hanna asks Emily what it was it like to come out.  What’s it like to stop being one thing and become something else.  Emily says that she wasn’t becoming something else, she was becoming who she really is.  She always knew, but she could never admit it.  Hanna says it wasn’t like that for her.  She never knew who the hell she was.

Spencer tells Jason that the time stamp on the email means Ms. DiLaurentis wrote it two hours after leaving the police station.  Jason suggests that his mom changed her mind about sending the email. 
Jason asks Spencer what would make her change her mind if it were her.  Spencer says that she would realize the message is something she has to deliver personally.  She would have gotten up, walked out and told someone Ali was alive and that things are falling apart. 
Jason says it’s too bad his mom never got to give the message.  Spencer thinks that maybe she did.  And whoever she talked to killed her.  Spencer’s got tons of ideas as to who it might be.

Jason asks Spencer if she wants to be right or does she want to be happy.  He hands the email back to Spencer.  Spencer says that she doesn’t have a choice.  She never did.  Jason advices her to cut her losses and get out while she still can.  He reminds her that they can’t trust their father. 

Ali stops by Ezra’s apartment.  She thanks Ezra for saving them that night on the roof.   She was scared that he would die and she’s glad that he’s okay now. 

Ezra asks why Ali is in his apartment and why did she bring his manuscript.  Ali says that she’s looking for something, but she couldn’t find everything she needed.  She needs more information in order to stay alive. 

Ali believes that Ezra has more information.  She doesn’t believe that he really destroyed all of it.  Ezra says that if there is any more information, the only thing preventing him from burning it is the possibility that it would help Aria if she would let him help her.

Ali tells him that he better keep it in a safe place.  Ezra asks if Aria knows that she came over.  When Ali says no, Ezra says to tell her.  Absolute honesty is all Ezra has got left.  Ali hopes that it will be enough.

Emily and Hanna stop at the Brew for food and coffee.  Hanna sees Mona and tells Emily to order for her. 

Hanna walks over to Mona and confronts her.  Hanna points out that Mona knew Ali was alive the whole time that Hanna and Mona were in glamour boot camp together. 

Mona says that doesn’t matter. Ali was gone.  There was a hole to fill and the opportunity to help each other move up the pyramid. 
Hanna says that Mona didn’t help her.  Mona changed her.  Mona made Hanna dye her hair, wear Ali’s clothes and even walk and talk like Ali.  Mona points out that Hanna didn’t give any pushback at the time.  Hanna says that Ali was gone, so why did Mona want to get Ali back by turning Hanna into the new Ali?

Mona thinks that Hanna should show her a little gratitude.  After all, Hanna didn’t like being “Hefty Hanna” any more than Mona liked being “Loser Mona”.  Mona asks who Hanna would be without the Ali upgrade.  Hanna says that she would still be herself.  Mona asks who remembers that version of Hanna? 

Spencer goes to Aria’s house to tell her that Emily and Hanna found out Jason has alibi for what happened in New York and Rosewood.

Spencer also tells Aria that Jason said not to trust Mr. Hastings.  There is a possibility that Ms. DiLaurentis was emailing Spencer’s dad. 
Spencer knows that she didn’t kill the girl in Ali’s grave, but she can’t prove it and her parents don’t believe her.  Aria asks if Spencer’s parents would actually do anything about it.  Spencer doesn’t know. 
Spencer is sorry that Aria had to go talk to Ezra.  Aria admits that they had to know what he was going to say about New York.

Spencer asks if Aria is okay and if she needs anything.  Aria says that she needs to know that killing Shana in the theater didn’t happen, but it did. 

Ali is walking down the street at night alone, when she runs into Spencer’s dad.  He’s surprised to see Ali all by herself.  Ali says that she can’t hide in her room forever.  Mr. Hastings offers Ali a ride home. 

Emily comes home to find Paige waiting for her on the porch.  Emily says that they are done fighting.  Paige asks what that makes them.  Emily says that they go to same school, used to be teammates and maybe will be friends. 

Paige admits that she practiced what she was going to say to Emily.  She practice the whole way over to Emily’s house and even sounded pretty convincing.  But then she got there and forgot everything she practiced.  All she can say is that she loves Emily.  And maybe if she says it just right it will somehow fix things and everything will be all right.

Emily says sorry.  Paige realizes that Emily doesn’t sound forgiving and she should leave.  Before Paige leaves, Emily tells her that she deserves the best of everything.  Paige says that is what she had. 

Spencer’s dad comes home to find Spencer waiting for him.  He offers to share his pretzels with her, as long as she doesn’t tell her mom.  The world is in a sorry state when he has to make a secret out of eating salt. 

Spencer shows her dad the email Ms. DiLaurentis wrote after coming back from the police station.  Spencer says that email is why Ms. Dilaurentis is dead. 

Spencer’s dad folds the email up and says that it doesn’t mean anything.  Spencer demands to know who Ms. DiLaurentis was trying to protect. 

Melissa comes in and tells Spencer to leave their dad alone.  Melissa grabs the email and reads it.  Their dad tells Melissa not to worry about the email.  Melissa rips up the email.  Spencer points out that ripping it means nothing in the digital age.  Melissa says that Ms. DiLaurentis was crazy, but Spencer points out that she was both crazy and afraid.

Mr. Hastings, fed up with their bickering, yells that people are dead.  They need to stop the friendly fire.  Melissa says that maybe they should tell Spencer, but their dad says no.  He orders Spencer to go upstairs.  Melissa thinks it would be best for Spencer to leave.  She says things are complicated.  Spencer’s dad says it is simple.  You can’t lie about something you don’t know anything about.

Aria comes to Ezra’s apartment.  She meant to warn Ezra that Ali might stop by, but she didn’t know Ali would move that fast.  When Ali came by, Ezra thought it was Aria at the door.  Ezra admits that he thought he’d never see Aria again.  Aria thought same thing.  Yet her she is, back at the scene of the crime.  Ezra tells her that there is no crime here. 

Aria tells Ezra that she didn’t just come to warn him about Ali.  She came to tell him something that she should have told him before.  Ezra tells her that she doesn’t have to tell him anything. 

Aria says that he doesn’t have to worry about Shana anymore because she’s dead.  Aria tells Ezra that she killed Shana in New York after she left the hospital.  Aria’s been telling herself that she just tried to stop Shana and never meant to kill her, but Aria is doubting herself.  Ezra asks how he can help her. 

Hanna, still struggling with her identity crisis and trying to figure out who she is, goes to the hair salon to dye her hair. She doesn’t want the same shade of blonde color she has now.  It’s time for a change. 

Mona watches from behind a glass door.  Someone joins Mona, but we don’t see who it is.

Cute Video of PLL Cast Playing With “A”’s Black Glove

Lucy Hale (Aria), Ashley Benson (Ashley), Tyler Blackburn (Caleb), Tammin Sursok (Jenna), Brendan Robinson (Lucas), Janel Parrish (Mona) and PLL show creator Marlene King all have fun wearing “A”’s black glove.  Laura Leighton (Hanna's mom Ashley Marin) doesn’t think that the glove looks like her style.  Lucy Hale has a bit of trouble putting the glove on.

Any theories that one of them is actually “A”?

Lucy Hale’s Song “Lie a Little Better” is about a PLL Castmate

“I used to have a crush on one of my castmates – and it’s not who you think.  My song ‘Lie a Little Better’ is about that experience” Lucy Hale has told US Weekly.

The lyrics for Lucy’s song “Lie a Little Better” are “The truth is I’m falling to pieces any time that you’re around.  The trouble is the truth keeps slipping out.  Can’t seem to hide what I’m feeling.  Can’t believe what I’m saying out loud.  Truth is there’s no turning back now.  I guess I should have learned how to lie a little better”.

Since she says it’s not about who we would think, that would probably eliminate Ian Harding (Ezra).  Her character has been involved with a few other guys on the show.  Could Ryan Guzman (Jake), Brant Daughtery (Noel), or Drew Van Acker (Ali’s older brother Jason) be the guy she’s singing about? 

Or maybe it’s a guy that her character has never been involved with romantically like Keegan Allen (Toby), Tyler Blackburn (Caleb) or Julian Morris (Wren)?

Regardless of who the song is about, "Lie a Little Better" is a really catchy song.  

Which Pretty Little Liars castmate do you think Lucy Hale is singing about in her song “Lie a Little Better”?

Chloe Bridges Joins PLL Cast as Sydney Driscoll (Spoiler Alert)

Chloe Bridges, the actress who was Donna LaDonna on The Carrie Diaries (the prequel to Sex and the City), makes her Pretty Little Liars debut in “Surfing the Aftershocks” episode 5x03.

Chloe Bridges will be joining the PLL cast as Sydney Driscoll, a new member of the Rosewood High swim team.

In an interview with IB Times, Marlene King (creator of PLL) said that this role was written specifically for Chloe Bridges.  They created this storyline a couple of years ago, but they had to wait for Chloe to be available for filming. 

As a new Rosewood High swimmer, Sydney will become friends with both Emily and Paige.  The end of season 4 left Emily and Paige’s relationship in a bad place, so Sydney Driscoll will help Emily and Paige reconnect.

Are you excited to see a new character come in or are you more interested in the characters that we already know and love?

Recap of “Whirly Girlie” PLL Episode 5x02

This week on Pretty Little Liars, Ali is home and already telling some big lies, Jason acts suspicious, Mike and Mona reconnect and Aria deals with massive guilt over Shana’s death.

Aria, Spencer, Hanna, Emily and Ali get off of the bus in Rosewood, back from New York.  Ali hesitates and Hanna asks if she is okay.  Ali turns to get back on the bus, but Emily stops her.  Emily tells Ali that she does not need to run anymore.  “A” is gone.


Spencer tells Ali that she is making the right decision by coming back to Rosewood and finally telling the truth.  Ali wants to go home and talk to her mom before doing anything else, but Emily reminds Ali that her mom buried her. 

Spencer tells Ali that the police need to know she is alive before Ali’s mom, Ms. DiLaurentis, finds out.  Emily tells Ali to talk to the police about Mona being “A” and Shana taking over as “A”.  Spencer says that Ali needs to start the story before the night she disappeared.  She needs to tell the police about blinding Jenna because Shana’s motive for attacking Ali was to get payback for Jenna.

Ali doesn’t feel like she can go through with this.  Aria feels responsible for Shana’s death, but she thinks she’ll be able to handle taking responsibility for that.  Ali will have to handle the rest, though. 

The girls all go to the Rosewood police station together.  Officer Holbrook approaches them and says that he knows who Ali is.  He welcomes her home and he is glad that she came with her friends.  He wants to hear her story, starting with the night she disappeared.


Ali drops a bombshell, claiming that she didn’t disappear.  She was kidnapped and held hostage for two years.  If it wasn’t for her friends, she wouldn’t be standing there.  Her friends saved her life.

Spencer, Hanna, Aria and Hanna all look shocked and uncomfortable as they listen to Ali lie to Officer Holbrook.

Officer Holbrook sits with all the girls and asks them some questions.  Clearly he doesn’t believe Ali’s story.  He shows Ali the photo taken a month ago of all the girls together.  He says he doesn’t know who took it, but the photo is dated.

Ali claims the picture was taken the night she got away from her captor.  She jumped out of his car.  Not believing her, Officer Holbrook asks if she did that while she was blindfolded.

Ali says that she ran to the woods after jumping out of the captor’s car.  Officer Holbrook says that the photo shows she was in Rosewood with her friends.

Ali claims that she asked her friends to hide her.  Officer Holbrook wonders why Ali would find it more helpful to ask her friends for help, rather than the police or her family.  Ali tells him that she was scared of being out in the open.

Ali tells Officer Holbrook that her friends hid her in the woods in a shed that they all used to hang out in.  Officer Holbrook catches Ali in that lie, pointing out that Ali previously said that her friends came to rescue her in Philadelphia. 

Ali is saved from answering Officer Holbrook’s questions when her dad comes in.  Ali and her dad hug.

Hanna wonders if she was sleeping when kidnapping was discussed as a cover story for Ali’s disappearance.  Spencer, upset with Ali’s lies, says that they never discussed it.  The girls wonder why Ali’s mom isn’t at the police station.

Back at home, Spencer’s mom tells Emily that she is welcome to stay at their house until Emily’s mom flies back to Rosewood from Dallas.  Her flight is delayed due to a storm.  Emily leaves the room to call her mom. 

Spencer tries to go to bed, but her mom, Mrs. Hastings, stops her.  Mrs. Hastings wants to know where Spencer has been for the past few days.  She cannot believe that Spencer knew Ali was alive for over a month and kept it a secret.  Spencer says that they promised Ali that they wouldn’t talk.

Mrs. Hastings is furious that Spencer didn’t think the situation through.  There is still a dead girl buried in Ali’s grave.  Spencer gets defensive and tells her mom that she had nothing to do with the girl’s death. 

Mrs. Hastings clarifies that she is not accusing Spencer of murder, just poor judgment.  Mr. Hastings is in Philadelphia.  He went there with Melissa when Spencer’s car got impounded.

Spencer is surprised that Melissa is back in Rosewood.  Mrs. Hastings said not to expect any souvenirs from London.  All Melissa brought back is attitude and secrets. 

Meanwhile, Hanna’s mom, Ms. Marin, is upset that Hanna didn’t tell the truth about Ali being alive.  Hanna says that she was going to tell her mom as soon as it was safe.  Hanna claims she feels safe now, but Ms. Marin doesn’t believe her.  How can Hanna feel safe if there is a kidnapper on the loose? 

Hanna tries to change the topic to cheese, but Ms. Marin keeps questioning Hanna, asking how Hanna felt when she found out that Ali was alive.  Ms. Marin doesn’t understand how Hanna could get up and go to school every day knowing what Ali was suffering through.  She feels so bad for Ali and everything she must have gone through.

Hanna, wanting to end the conversation, tells her mom that Ali just wants to move on from this nightmare.  It’s harder for Ali to move on if people keep asking questions.  Everything is over and she needs it to end.

Aria, worried about Ezra, calls the hospital to check on his status.  She is interrupted by Mike, who comes to her room and wants to know if it is true that Ali is alive.

Mike overheard their dad talking to their mom about the freak who kidnapped and blindfolded Ali.  Aria, annoyed with the questions, snaps that this isn’t a videogame.  Mike says that he wasn’t joking.  Ali is so tough; he is surprised that she didn’t strangle her kidnapper with her bare hands.  Aria begs him to stop talking.

Mike, who overheard Aria on the phone, asks why Ezra is in the hospital.  Aria tells him that Ezra was in New York for the weekend and got hurt.  Mike asks if Ezra will be okay and Aria says that he’ll be fine, she already saw him.

Mike asks how Aria saw Ezra if she was in Philadelphia over the weekend.  Aria, realizing she slipped up, tells Mike that she didn’t see Ezra.  She just talked to him on the phone.  She tells Mike that she’s exhausted and needs some sleep.

Emily, talking to her mom on the phone, explains that while Ali was kidnapped she was locked in a room and only heard the kidnapper’s voice.  Spencer waits for Emily to finish her call outside the house. 

Spencer is furious that Ali blindsided all of them with her lies.  They made a pact to tell the truth now that “A” is finally dead.  They were going to go back to their normal lives, but Ali changed her mind and went rogue at the police station.  Spencer says that they are back on Planet Alison.  It’s ninth grade all over again, like they are on a whirly girlie ride.  Ali goes rogue and they are just expected to back her up.  Ali is still trying to control them.

Emily tells Spencer that Ali may have lied to protect her mom.  Spencer cannot believe that Emily is defending Ali.

Spencer and Emily notice Jason, Ali’s older brother, next door.  He is cleaning his car.  They wonder why Jason is taking the time to clean his car when his sister just came back from the dead.

Once Jason goes inside, Spencer and Emily head over to peek in his car.  Ali is at her bedroom window.  She throws a roll of toilet paper down to them.  There is a cell phone in the roll. 

The phone has a text message that says “The truth will bury you in a New York minute”.  The girls ask Ali who sent her the text.  Ali draws a question mark on her window. 

Ali looks through her closet and picks up a doll in her room.  Ali’s dad comes in and suggests that Ali sleep downstairs so she doesn’t have to be by herself.  Ali says that she’s been dreaming about sleeping in her own bed for a long time.  Ali’s dad admits that he doesn’t think he can let her out of his sight again.

Ali asks if he has heard from her mom.  He and Jason have been trying to find her mom, but they are worried.  Ali’s dad tells her that he wants her to feel safe.  He asked the police to put barrier up at end of the street.  Lots of people want to hear her story, but she doesn’t have to talk or leave the house until she is ready. 

Ali’s dad cries as he expresses regret that he can’t give her back the years she has lost.  He promises to do everything he can to help her forget.  He takes out a picture of Ali as a little girl that he’s kept in his wallet every since the night she disappeared.  He tells her that he refused to let her go.  He kisses Ali on the head and pulls her window blinds down. 

Ali’s dad tells her that he and her mom are divorcing.  Ali says that Emily already told her.  Ali cries as she says sorry to her dad.  He says that he’s sorry, too. 

Aria falls asleep reading in bed.  She has nightmares of Shana playing the violin and relives the moment when she pushed Shana to her death.  Aria wakes up suddenly, but she still hears violin music outside.  Aria, wearing a t-shirt that says “You’re no good”, goes over to the window to listen.

Hanna calls Aria, wondering who sent Ali that cryptic text message.  Aria doesn’t know what Hanna is talking about and Hanna realizes that Emily and Spencer hadn’t told Aria about it.  Hanna explains that Ali got a text message on her phone at the precinct, which caused her to lie to the police. 

Aria freaks out at the idea that “A” is still sending text messages.  Hanna reassures Aria that “A” is dead, but Hanna has to get off the phone when her mom calls for her.  Freaked out, Aria closes and locks her window.

Ali can’t sleep and she sits up when she hears a noise.  She lies back down and her bedroom door opens.  Jason enters her room and watches Ali, who is lying in bed facing the other direction.

Ali’s dad pays a visit to Hanna’s mom and asks her for help.  Hanna secretly listens to their conversation.  Ali’s dad wants Hanna’s mom to go through Ms. DiLaurentis’s emails to find out where she is.  Hanna’s mom is uncomfortable with doing that and asks if Jason can help find Ali’s mom. 

Ali’s dad shows his anger towards Jason, expressing his disbelief that Jason hasn’t shed a tear since Ali’s return.  He doesn’t know if it is due to shock or his brain has become so deadened from drugs that he can’t act like a human being anymore.  Hanna’s mom suggests that’s probably the shock.

Ali joins Jason on the porch.  When he sees her, he quickly puts his phone away.  Jason tells her that she can’t be outside.  There is a line of cars down the street.  Cops and the press.  Ali points out that Jason hasn’t asked her many questions since she’s returned home.  Jason says he figured Ali needed some space.

Ali asks Jason what their mom’s reaction was when she found out that Ali was alive.  Jason seems surprised by the question.  He says their mom was stunned. 


A car pulls up and Jason tells Ali to get inside, but Ali doesn’t listen.  A woman from the county shelter steps out of a van with a dog named Pepe.  She says that Ms. DiLaurentis wanted to adopt him. 

Jason denies that his mother order this.  The woman tells him that it’s a dog, not a pizza. 

Ali immediately comes to pet Pepe and asks why he was at the shelter.  The woman says the dog has issues, mostly with men.  She pointedly looks at Jason as she says this.  Angry, Jason demands that she put the dog back in the van.  Ali asks what will happen to Pepe if they don’t take him.  When Ali hears that this was the last chance for Pepe, Ali takes Pepe’s leash.

Mike runs into Mona outside the Brew and asks if she needs help carrying a large box and her coffee.  She declines his help, but he walks with her. 

Mike asks if she’s heard about Ali.  Mona says that it’s quite a story.  And now there is a psycho circling town looking for his next victim.  They need to fight back, which is why Mona ordered whistles for every girl in school.  She also asked Principal Hackett for special apps for their phones, since the all the girls at Rosewood High can’t hire full time bodyguards.  Mike says he would apply for that job if she could stand being around him that much.  Mike tells Mona that he misses her.

Emily leaves Spencer’s house and Spencer chases after her, telling her that they are supposed to stay at home.  Emily just wants to give Ali her phone back.  Spencer tells Emily that Hanna told Aria about the text message.  Now Aria is freaked out thinking that “A” is back and she is one text away from being turned over to the police for killing Shana.

Emily and Spencer both believe that “A” is dead.  Spencer thinks the text might have been from Jenna.  Emily isn’t concerned about Jenna, since it is five against one.

Spencer digs through the DiLaurentis’s trash can, looking for what Jason threw out the night before.  She finds a bag from Boyanjian Bakery in New York.  Emily says that Jason’s rehab visit was a lie.  What if Jason was following Ali under Ms. DiLaurentis’s orders?  Emily thinks Jason was the one who sent Ali that threatening text.  If Ali started talking, Ms. DiLaurentis would go down.  And who would Ms. DiLaurentis cover for besides Jason?

Aria, unable to get Shana out of her mind, looks through breaking news stories on the New York Bulletin website.  She types in “Dead girl theater Georgia”, but deletes the words before completing the search.  Aria hears violin music again, this time from her MP3 player.  She switches songs and another violin music piece plays.  Freaked out, Aria yanks her earbuds out.

Emily and Spencer are in Ali’s room and Ali is sitting on the bed with Pepe.  Emily explains that it can’t be a coincidence that Jason came back from New York the same night that Ali returned. 

Ali tells the girls that that Jason was in her room last night, watching her sleep.  Emily is horrified and tells Ali to spend the night at Spencer’s.  Ali doesn’t think her dad isn’t going to let her leave the house for sleepovers.

Ali asks if Spencer thinks that she should be afraid of their big brother.  She tells Spencer that she knows Spencer told Jason that he is her half-brother.  Ali says not to worry about it; she thinks her dad might know, too.  Ali wants to know if Spencer believes that Jason is the one who slammed a rock against her head and almost killed her.

Spencer thinks it’s possible, but she’s not sure.  Ali had been needling both Spencer’s family and her own family with the Peter Hastings and Jessica DiLaurentis affair, so probably both families wanted to shut Ali up.  If Ms. DiLaurentis chose Jason over Ali, then Ms. DiLaurentis would have every reason to make the girls look bad.  They’ve been framed as pathological liars ever since Ali went missing and no one would believe anything the girls said. 

Emily begs Ali to stay at her house, but Ali says that she has a few ideas of what to do.  Spencer tells Ali to let them in on the ideas, so the girls aren’t left paddling around like idiots trying to play catch up.  Ali tells Spencer that she lied to the police to protect Aria, since Aria killed someone.  Spencer tells Ali that she could have consulted them before coming up with the kidnapping lie.  Emily interrupts the fight and says what is done is done.  They need to focus their attention on who is sinking them now.

Hanna’s mom is on the computer, working on finding out where Ms. DiLaurentis might be.  She was about to open some of Ms. DiLaurentis’s emails, but she just can’t do it.  The last thing she wants to do is get in the middle of a divorce.  It’s both an invasion of privacy and a betrayal. 

Hanna points out that Ms. DiLaurentis would probably prefer her snooping, oppose to the police going through her emails.  Hanna also says that Ali really needs her mom.  When Hanna’s mom leaves to answer the phone, Hanna looks at the computer.

Spencer comes home to find Toby in her kitchen.  Spencer’s mom tells her that Melissa claimed to have come back to Rosewood after Toby got her in London.  Toby says that is not what happened.  When he got to Melissa’s place in London, Wren opened the door.  Wren said that he was staying there and Melissa isn’t in London anymore.

Spencer’s mom says that it doesn’t make sense.  Toby suggests that she call Wren, but Spencer’s mom says she’d rather stick a knife in toaster. She leaves for work and tells Spencer to stay close to home.

Toby explains that he went to London to get answers for Spencer.  He thought he could get Melissa to tell the truth if he confronted her face-to-face.  Toby says he heard about Ali’s return, but he wants to hear the whole story from Spencer.

Aria is in the shed putting blankets and a pillow on the floor.  Emily comes in and tells Aria that she got her text.  Aria is busy making it look like Ali has been living in the shed, since that is the story Ali told the cops.  Emily tells Aria that she can’t do this now, but Aria says it should have been done the night before. 

Aria is furious that Spencer and Emily kept her in the dark about the threatening text message Ali received.  She’s not a child.  Emily says that they only did that because Aria was a mess when her dad came to pick her up at the police station.  Aria doesn’t understand what they were thinking, that she’d get a good night’s sleep and wake up in Candyland?

Emily tells Aria to calm down because the text didn’t come from “A”.  After all, Emily was there when “A”/Shana was killed.  Emily thinks Spencer is right.  It is one thing not to contradict Ali’s story, but it’s another thing to add onto the story.  They can’t go down that rabbit hole again.

Aria says that she can’t sit around and do nothing.  If “A” knows about Shana, then Aria will be the one to go down.  Emily tells her that Shana used them as target practice and Aria acted purely in self-defense. 

Aria has a meltdown and says that it doesn’t matter if it was self-defense.  The fact is someone is dead.  Shana cannot graduate or apologize because Aria killed her.  Aria doesn’t know how she can live with that.

Emily says that she knows how it feels.  She went through this after she killed Nate (the stalker who killed Maya).

Aria picks up an empty soda can and throws it.  She remembers how they used to sneak out to the woods.  The biggest problem they worried about was how to eat peanut butter with braces.

Hanna’s mom leaves the room to get more paper for the printer, and Hanna looks at Ms. DiLaurentis’s emails.  She finds an email addressed to “Unspecified Recipient”.  The email says “I can’t protect you anymore”.

Toby and Spencer kiss in Spencer’s room.  Spencer tells Toby to take her with him the next time he goes to London.  They’ll go to London and never come back.


There is some major tension between Jason and his dad.  Mr. DiLaurentis is furious that Jason wants to leave for Philadelphia.  Jason says that he has to drop something off for a friend after dinner, but he can wait until Ali falls asleep.  Mr. DiLaurentis says that it is a news story every time someone walks out of the house.  The last thing he wants is Jason to speak to reporter.  Jason is furious and says that he won’t embarrass his dad any more than he already has. 

Emily walks in, ready to take Pepe for a walk.  Mr. DiLaurentis is annoyed that Jason brought home a dog.  Jason says that his mom rescued the dog from a shelter.  Mr. DiLaurentis, convinced that Jason knows where Ms. DiLaurentis is hiding, tells Jason to let her know that there is more than a dog waiting at home.

Aria walks in on Mike and Mona, who are cuddly on couch.  Mike says that he ordered pizza for dinner, but Aria isn’t hungry.

Mona acts shocked that Aria was walking around in the dark by herself.  Given everything that happened to Ali, she wouldn’t walk to the curb without a police escort. 

Mike hands Aria her MP3 player and says that he borrowed it again.  He says he needed it to compile music for a social studies project.  Aria asks if the violin music she heard was from his room, and Mike vaguely acknowledges that it may have been.  Mona asks to be dropped off at the library for research and Mike leaves the room.

Aria asks Mona if she is doing research in the library or in Aria’s house.  Mona says that Mike invited her to dinner. 

Mona is supposedly glad to see Aria.  Now she can give Aria her whistle in person.  Aria doesn’t take the whistle and stares at Mona suspiciously.  Mona says that what happened to Ali was a wake up call.  No one is safe.

Aria wants to know what Mona is trying to prove.  Is Mona trying to threaten her?  Mona acts like she doesn’t know what Aria is talking about.  Aria tells Mona that they know Mona was with Ali at the Lost Wood Motel room the night Ali ran away.  Aria knows that Mona has stories of her own to keep quiet. 

Mona smiles and asks if Ezra is making a full recovery.  Mike interrupts them and asks Aria for the car keys so he can take Mona to the library.

At the DiLaurentis house, Hanna hands Ali’s dad a paper with the name of a meditation center that Ms. DiLaurentis went to before.  Maybe he can look for her there.  Ali’s dad invites Emily and Hanna to stay for dinner.  Emily says yes, but Hanna quickly says that they can’t. 

In the car, Emily tells Hanna that Jason is going to Philadelphia, which might be code for New York.  Maybe Ms. DiLaurentis is there.  Hanna tells Emily about the email Ms. DiLaurentis wrote the night before she skipped town.  Ms. DiLaurentis didn’t get the chance to send the email.


Hanna is scared when Jason bangs on her car window.  Jason tells Hanna that he saw her give information to his dad.  Jason says Hanna should stay out of places that she doesn’t belong.  Jason gets in his car and drives away.

Emily tells Hanna to hurry up and follow Jason, since he might be going to see his mother. 

Emily and Hanna watch Jason enter an apartment and then drive away.  Once he’s gone, they get out and ring a couple buzzers, hoping Ms. DiLaurentis will answer.  A man comes up behind them and scares them off.

Spencer’s cell phone rings, but Spencer ignores it and continues to kiss Toby.  The phone keeps ringing and Toby says that someone really wants to reach her.  Spencer turns off ringer.  Toby asks what’s going on with her.  Is it about Ali or Melissa?  Spencer says no, but she doesn’t tell him what is bothering her.

Ali takes a rose to the mausoleum and touches the place where she was supposed to be buried.  Mona comes in and Ali asks if she followed her.  Ali says that she is not supposed to be out of her house, but she had to come and say goodbye.  The girl they made this for really is gone. 

Ali tells Mona that she can’t be that person anymore.  She knows Mona hated her and wanted her to go straight to hell.  Going there was easy; it’s coming back that’s hard.  Ali says that she and Mona understand each other.  Surprisingly, Ali says that she needs Mona as a friend.

Mona tells Ali that “the truth will bury you in a New York minute”.  Mona was the one who sent the text to Ali.  She should have signed her name because she doesn’t have to pretend to be someone else or hide anymore, but Ali does. Mona grabs Ali’s rose and tells Ali that she’s gonna wish she stayed dead.

Aria is freaking out that “A” is going to go to the cops and tattle on her.  Hanna tells her to breath and Emily wants her to wait until Spencer gets there.  Spencer went to distract Mr. DiLaurentis so that Ali could sneak out and meet them.

Aria tells them that Mona knows that they were in New York.  It’s just a matter of time before Mona runs out of whistles and starts handing out balloons that say “Aria killed Shana”.

Hanna and Emily try to convince Aria that “A” is dead, but Aria won’t listen.  If “A” is dead, who is screwing with her?  Who is playing the violin outside her window?

Emily tells Aria that Jason sent the text to Ali.  They just have to find a way to prove it.

Spencer knocks on the door at Ali’s house and the door swings open.  Spencer enters and calls for Ali.  She is startled when she sees Jason.  Jason says Ali may be asleep, or did Spencer come to take out the trash?  Clearly Jason knows that Spencer has been digging through his trash.  Spencer asks Jason if he was in New York the night that Ali came back.

Jason asks why she wants to know.  Does she think he’s the one who kidnapped her? Jason thinks that theory must have come from his dad.  His dad is probably at the precinct sharing that idea with the cops now.  Without his mom around, who’s going to stop him?  Again, Spencer asks Jason why he was in New York.  Jason is saved from answering when Pepe starts barking. 

Emily, Hanna and Aria go over to see what’s wrong with Pepe.  Aria is confused as to whose dog it is.  She wonders when Ali had time to get a dog.  The dog barks at something in the ground.  The girls scream when they see what the dog is barking at.

Spencer runs over to investigate.  When she sees what’s in the yard, she tries to stop Jason from looking.  Jason looks shocked as he stares at the ground.  A hand is sticking out of the ground.  Pepe has found Ms. DiLaurentis’s dead body.

The police come and Ali’s backyard is once again a crime scene.  Ms. DiLaurentis’s body is zipped up in a body bag.  Everybody is in the backyard now, including Ali’s dad.  Spencer’s mom hugs Spencer. 

Ali is also in backyard, with a hoodie over her head.  She watches silently as people rush around her.
