Pretty Little Liars - Power Play

While one of the Liars is tempted two of the others are tormented by A.D. Finally deciding to abort her pregnancy, Alison (Sasha Pieterse) then discovers that the child inside her isn't her egg but one that was stolen from Emily (Shay Mitchell) on her return to Rosewood. Likely to shatter the new comfort found with Paige (Lindsey Shaw), Emily is rocked by the news unsure as to what it means for her future. As for Aria (Lucy Hale), she's offered the opportunity to avoid the game altogether by joining the other side. Although Aria tells Sydney (Chloe Bridges, in a painfully bad performance) where to stick her boss' offer, given the recent drama with Ezra (Ian Harding) and Nicole (Rebecca Breeds) and watching her friends be put through the wringer, she's slower to dismiss A.D. the second time around.

The rest of the episode centers around Spencer (Troian Bellisario) still reeling from the truth about her maternity and working with to track down Mary Drake (Andrea Parker). The search offers the unexpected callback of Ted (Edward Kerr), whose connection to Mary feels a bit forced, but no new answers for Spencer whose love live is also likely to take a hit now that the police have identified the severed finger sent to them by A.D. Aria's choice not to dismiss A.D.'s offer so vehemently the second time around gets her a small reprieve, but is she really willing to sacrifice her friends to throw in with the enemy?
