"Pretty Little Liars" Season 1 Episode 16 aired Feb. 7 on ABC Family. Here's a recap of the show.
When the show kicks off, Aria grills her dad about her mom’s trip to the museum. Aria is worried her mom saw her with Mr. Fitz. Her dad clams up because he doesn’t want Aria to know what really happened. Remember, Aria’s parents made out in the car. (Note: Catch up on last week's episode here.)
Meanwhile, Spencer has a change of heart about Toby. Emily says she should apologize to him directly.
Spencer opts for an even better idea: She wants to tutor Toby in French. She tells Ian she’s taking a break from lacrosse to tutor Toby. Ian and Melissa are shocked. Nonetheless, Spencer and Toby bond – especially when Spencer tells Toby she thinks he’s being framed. Spencer tries to ask Toby about Alison, but their conversation ends abruptly.
Emily excels at swim practice. She continues her rivalry with Paige. Then, on a random rainy night, Paige rides her bike to Emily’s house and tearfully apologizes. The next day, she’s not at the swim meet. She had an accident while riding her bike.
What’s up with Hanna? She asks Caleb to remain silent about what he did to Aria’s mom’s car. Caleb asks Hanna to pay a price for his silence. He asks her on a date and she says no.
Aria and Hanna spy on Aria’s parents while they make out in the school library. They find a bunch of stuff, including money, by a vent and assume it belongs to “A.” With that, a scary person in a hooded sweatshirt starts chasing them. They panic – and then realize it’s only Caleb.
Apparently, he lives at school. His foster parents don’t care about him. After that, Hanna helps Caleb meet people at school – apparently so he can earn money from them. It’s not Hanna’s only good deed. When Caleb gets “evicted” from school, Hanna says he can live with her.
At Emily’s swim meet, Spencer tells Melissa to watch out for Ian: “You have to ask him about Alison – about what happened the summer she was killed.” Melissa doesn’t believe Spencer.
Paige arrives at the swim meet and watches from the sidelines. Emily’s team win and Paige cheers. Did Paige genuinely change? I doubt it.
With that question unanswered, “A” sends Aria a text message: “Almost got busted. Wanna know how? Ask Hanna!” Of course, it makes Hanna tell Aria that she gave Aria’s mom the museum ticket. Friendship destroyed. Temporarily. Fortunately, Caleb consoles Hanna.
Believe it or not, Emily and Paige actually bond after the swim meet.
Regarding other major new friendships, Toby asks Spencer to stop the tutoring gig. He returns one of the books Spencer gave him. There’s a note inside. It says, “I found this in Jenna’s room. You may be right.” Huh?
In the show’s final moments, Melissa gives Spencer some big news: She’s pregnant.
As the credits roll, we see “A” listening to a French record and doing something with an object that resembles a trophy. I’m totally confused.
