'Pretty Little Liars' recap: The Heart Is A Lonely Holden

pretty-little-liars.jpgSpencer's living at Aria's -- thanks to her parent-related blowout last week -- but heads home for a quick meet with her dad (Spencer's Dad is still the hottest dad) when Jason surmises that Alison was bribing Mr. Hastings about her brother's bastardy. This turns out not to be the case, but it does afford Jason and Spencer a fairly beautiful moment together in which they agree that the reason they're both so sketchy and confrontational is because of their shared "wiring." In the end, and after many kick-ass one-liners, she asks Jason for a loan because...

Vivian's contact from last week is an elfin, vulpine cutie named Jonah, and she was using his position at a cellphone store to track down A. When Alison vanished, he went unpaid, so now he wants to stick the Liars with her bill. And they may have to pay any given amount, because he did eventually figure out who was hounding her before he got fired...

Which probably was also A's doing, considering how much A gets around. In this episode alone, she: Sends Byron to Philly to track down Aria's secret hideout with Ezra; sends Detective Wilden and Garrett after Caleb with a court order; and has stashed his computer with some stolen school records (Mona clue?).

In the process of investigating the missing Page Five (stolen by Jenna and Garrett), Wilden also finds a picture of the Liars, dressed up as candy-stripers (during Emily's bout with HGH) to steal the autopsy report. Seems he's still on the case to proving they killed their friend, but after an icy reunion with former lover Ashley Marin, that part might get back-burnered for now.
