Pretty Little Liars - The Talented Mr. Rollins

"The Talented Mr. Rollins" marks a major turning point in the season. Thwarted by Elliot (Huw Collins) and unable to prove that the doctor is responsible for Alison's (Sasha Pieterse) deteriorating condition, the Liars focus on learning more about their adversary. Not only do they discover how his use of drugs is making Alison appear insane, Aria (Lucy Hale) and Hanna (Ashley Benson) also discover the good doctor's motive by uncovering his secret relationship with Charlotte. Despite Spencer (Troian Bellisario) choosing not to involve Toby given his engagement party, Emily (Shay Mitchell) does just that. However, given the events of the end of the episode it's a choice that all of the Liars may live to regret (and likely Officer Cavanaugh as well).

Relationships continue to take a pounding as Hanna chooses to keep her break-up (along with the details of her captivity) from her friends and Spencer and Caleb (Tyler Blackburn) inch closer to implosion. At least Emily has a little luck in the love department, but given what's coming how long can that last? Ending with the reveal of the season opening tease, we now know who the Liars are attempting to bury in the woods and why. It's likely that the repercussions of the Liars saving Alison's life will last throughout the end of the series. After years of being tortured by A and then later Elliot's knock-off version, each Liar will have to put what they've learned to good use if they have any hope of getting away with murder.
