A brunch interrupted.
The Liars have brunch at The Radley. Spencer gives each of them a necklace as a testimony to their friendship. They are toasting Aria’s engagement and the fact they’re all going to be bridesmaids when Alison spots a message from A.D. Looks like their secret, that they tried so hard to bury, is now out. The cops arrive at the hotel and Emily discovers that Sara Harvey is dead, and that they have come to remove her body. A crowd gathers and Jenna appears visibly upset by Sara’s death. The Liars can't help but wonder if she is faking. Emily tells the Liars that Sara said Jenna isn’t the one they should be afraid of. She also tells her friends about the folder she found on Jenna’s computer labeled, ‘Charlotte DiLaurentis.’ Spencer asserts that they should steal Jenna’s laptop as it could lead them to A.D.
It's Pam's birthday!
Emily and her mom are out jogging. Emily asks Pam what she would like to do for her birthday, but Pam is adamant that she doesn’t want to do anything. Emily suggests that she should come to The Radley for a quiet dinner and Pam agrees. Meanwhile, Spencer bumps into Toby at The Brew. She asks him why Jenna has returned to Rosewood and he tells her that it was to seek forgiveness. In a flashback, we see Toby and Jenna sitting on a porch as fireworks go off above them. Jenna tells Toby that she is afraid she’s forgetting what he looks like and so Toby takes her hands and holds them to his face. Jenna leans in to kiss him but Toby angrily rejects her. Back in the present day, Toby tells Spencer that he has not seen Jenna since. Toby then gets a message on his radio to go to an address – HIS address – and he hastily leaves, worried about Yvonne.
At the DiLaurentis house, Alison and Mary Drake paint over the sinister message on the wall when Jason shows up. When he sees Mary Drake, he gives her the court order that appoints him as Alison’s primary caretaker. Jason tells Mary to leave, but Alison tries to stop him. Later, Alison pleads with Jason to give Mary a chance because she’s their aunt. Meanwhile, Spencer is at the hospital with Toby. Yvonne is pretty beat up and has been admitted. Spencer is on the phone to Hanna who tells her she’s managed to get her mom's master key which will open Jenna’s room. Later, Ezra and Aria contemplate their wedding plans when Ezra suggests they elope. Aria is apprehensive, but agrees to discuss it further the next day. She then gets a text from Jason asking if they can meet up.
What's Noel up to?
Hanna searches Jenna’s room and finds a locked box under the bed. Before she can investigate further, she is startled by Caleb who has been hired to bulk up the hotel security. He tells her that he knows a way to get into the locked box. Later, unbeknown to Jenna, Caleb gives her a massage in the hotel spa. While she is relaxing, he takes her keys from her purse and gives them to Spencer and Hanna, who are waiting outside. They take the keys and go back to Jenna's room in order to open the locked box. They are taking photos of the papers they find inside when Noel Kahn enters the room. The two Liars watch from under the bed as he opens the locked box and then makes a phone call. Hanna and Spencer overhear him leaving a message for a doctor, during which he states that he is running out of patience.
Aria meets with Jason at The Brew. She tells him that she is engaged to Ezra and then asks him whether he has told anyone about them. Jason tells her that he has kept it their secret before asking her for help with Alison. He’s worried about her being manipulated by Mary Drake and has hired a forensic accountant to try to prove that Mary is involved in the loss of all of their money. Meanwhile, Hanna and Caleb try to work out the code on Mary Drake’s papers when Hanna confesses to him about her and Jordan. Hanna tells Caleb how hard it is to break up with someone and hints that she’s actually talking about Caleb. She asks if they’re still friends and Caleb replies, ‘always.’
Pam's birthday celebrations!
Emily meets her mom for dinner when she gets a text from Spencer telling her that Noel has broken into Toby’s airstream to steal Mary’s file. A bachelorette party arrives and Pam is wary about the amount of noise they’re making. Emily and Pam struggle to have a conversation and Emily eventually asks her mom what is wrong. Pam tells her that she feels guilty for having fun without her dad, but Emily tells her that he would have liked them to enjoy life. The bridal party buys each of them a drink as an apology for the noise. Pam goes over to thank them and ends up making friends. Later, she admits to Emily how much fun she’s had.
An awkward dinner!
Mary Drake prepares a family dinner for Alison and Jason. They make awkward conversation when Aria, invited by Jason, arrives. Later, Alison is angry with Jason for not making an effort with their aunt, but Mary Drake says she doesn’t blame him since he’s never really had a chance to get to know her. She tells them that Jessica wouldn’t allow it and that she wouldn’t even tell her anything about Charlotte. Alison also learns that her great aunt Carol had a secret storm cellar at her house. Meanwhile, Spencer visits Yvonne and Toby in hospital. While Yvonne signs her release papers, Spencer apologizes to Toby for dragging him into the middle of everything. Spencer begs him to pack up his things and leave Rosewood with Yvonne.
Emily convinces Aria to elope!
Aria goes to The Radley to tell Emily that Alison's great aunt Carol had a storm cellar. If Jessica spent a lot of time there, it could mean that there's something important down there. The cellar might reveal information about who would have wanted revenge for Charlotte’s murder. When Emily asks if they could investigate the next day since it’s her mom’s birthday, Aria says she won’t be able to because Ezra wants to elope to Tuscany. Aria is still uncertain – she would hate not to have her friends there with her – but Emily persuades her that she'd be doing it for all of them. Emily promises the she and the others will investigate the storm cellar the following evening. Aria makes up her mind and decides to elope!
Spoby's emotional goodbye!
Toby goes to Spencer and tells her that the house he started building in Rosewood was originally for her--not Yvonne. He realized, however, in the few moments it took to get to Yvonne in the hospital that he couldn’t live without her. Toby tells Spencer that he and Yvonne are going to move to Maine to start their family. Spencer and Toby share an emotional goodbye. Meanwhile, Aria and Ezra are preparing to leave for their elopement when there is a knock at the door. It’s the cops, and they have come to tell Ezra that they have reason to believe Nicole may be alive.
The Liars investigate the storm cellar!
The Liars investigate the secret storm cellar. Opening a filing cabinet, they find a file for each of them except Aria. They also find Mary’s medical files. Reading them they discover that Mary had a second child who would have been the same age as the Liars. Finding photos of Alison everywhere, they discover that Jessica must have known that she was still alive. Spencer's car alarm startles them and they run outside to stop it. The keys are gone, however, and so they get inside the car to turn off the alarm. Once inside, the car automatically locks and a seriously scary countdown begins. A sinister message then appears: "If you find out who I am before I find out who killed Charlotte, YOU DIE." The storm cellar then blows up right in front of the terrified girls. A hooded figure writes "I see you" on the back of their car. Later, we see a shady figure with Aria's file in front of them. The person then lights a match to burn a file with Noel Kahn’s name on it.
