Pretty Little Liars - O Brother, Where Art Thou

The occasion of Charles DiLaurentis's birthday, and the notes left at the DiLaurentis home, force Alison's (Sasha Pieterse) father to grab his daughter and run while Jason (Drew Van Acker) chooses to stay and confront the brother who he only half-remembers as an imaginary friend. News on Charles' return also bolsters the Liars into making a stand to take down A once and for all, but, as is the running theme of the show, things don't go according to plan. Once again the Liars come up empty while unintentionally costing Jason his one shot at bringing his brother in peacefully (or getting stabbed in the neck in an empty warehouse and left for dead, you never know with A).

Spencer's (Troian Bellisario) joy of Toby's (Keegan Allen) return is short-lived as her boyfriend refuses to let the Liars confront Charles putting himself in danger while unknowingly hampering his ability to do his job properly. Toby's brownie mistake is a bit clumsy but it, and the consequences he will face for being high on the job, offer a possible new obstacle to Spoby going forward as the season continues to tease romantic upheaval for Spencer. In other romantic subplots Mike (Cody Allen Christian) finally is able to reconnect to Mona (Janel Parrish) who has shut down Aria's (Lucy Hale) brother since the group's return to Rosedale and Emily (Shay Mitchell) gets in touch with her inner jealous bitch while watching Sara (Dre Davis) reconnect with an old friend. It's far from the most generous side of Emily we've seen, but neither her reaction to Sara's friend nor news that her roomie is moving it seems enough to stop the Liars' new burgeoning romance.
