Pretty Little Liars - Hot for Teacher

Unwilling to share her Ezra (Ian Harding) is A theory with the rest of the Liars without proof, a jittery Spencer (Troian Bellisario) begins spending all hours searching for evidence while buying speed from another student (Nikki SooHoo) to keep fueling her search. Realizing something is up with her friend, Hanna (Ashley Benson) begins doing a little snooping of her own and is shocked to discover Spencer's theory.

Trying to get back into the good graces of Alison (Sasha Pieterse), Emily (Shay Mitchell) agrees to help Shana (Aeriél Miranda) retrieve an envelope of stashed cash from the DiLaurentis house. But when Shana is attacked by A before she retrieve the money Alison needs to stay on the run the rattled young woman reads the literal writing on the wall and gets out of town for good abandoning Alison in her time of need. Down an asset, will this be the tipping point that finally forces Alison to reach out to the Liars?

The episode ends with Emily and Hanna both skeptical, but not totally dismissive, of Spencer's theory, and Aria (Lucy Hale) troubled with not telling her friends that she's back together with the man they all believe is a monster. "Hot For Teacher" leaves Ezra more vulnerable than ever (if this simply isn't another drawn-out red herring). However, Spencer's pill problem (which has still yet to be discovered) would make for an easy and convincing way to shield blame if A chooses.
