Pretty Little Liars - Exes and OMGs

While Hanna's (Ashley Benson) belief that Noel Kahn (Brant Daugherty) is A.D. is bolstered by a nightmare, flashbacks to the torture she suffered during her kidnapping, and a sudden appearance by Carla Grunwald (Meg Foster), Spencer (Troian Bellisario) and Aria (Lucy Hale) investigate the sole remaining lead the Liars have by looking into the disgraced Radley doctor (Keith Szarabajka) who gave birth to Mary Drake's (Andrea Parker) second child. Despite the other Liars' unwillingness to act until their is definitive proof about Noel's involvement, it appears Hanna is ready to take matters into her own hands (but who is helping her?).

Alison (Sasha Pieterse) returns to work at the high school and quickly is taught that A.D. doesn't have a patent on cruel pranks. News that his former fiance may still be alive, and that Aria (Lucy Hale) may have suspected something, throws a wrench into Ezra (Ian Harding) latest wedding plans. Emily (Shay Mitchell) also has to deal with the unexpected return of an ex when she runs into Paige (Lindsey Shaw) while considering applying for a job at Rosewood High School as the new swim coach.

While each of the other Liars is distracted with their own business, current and ex lovers, and the search for answers, it's Hanna's story that drives the season to likely dark places beginning next week. Ezra's exit and Paige's return certainly shake-up the Rosewood status quo as far as relationships go, but it's Hanna's friends who miss all the tell-tale signs of Hanna preparing to take drastic action that is likely going to lead to trouble for the entire group.
