Pretty Little Liars Recap: “The Guilty Girl’s Handbook”
When Mrs. Hastings couldn’t get Ashley out on bail, the girls were all devastated. Spencer (Troian Bellisario), in particular, seemed to blame her mom for everything. Then, I remembered she’s a 16-year-old girl.
With everything that’s been happening to the girls lately, Ezra asked Emily (Shay Mitchell) if it had anything to do with A again. He was helping her with her college applications. He told Emily she should reach out to her old advisor, Zoe, from her volunteer work in Haiti for a recommendation letter.
Zoe agreed to write the letter, and convinced Emily to join the crew for Nicaragua this summer. Even though Emily knew her parents were struggling financially, she thought they could afford this. However, it just stressed her mom out more.
Spencer thought A was upping her game, because Caleb and Toby were getting close to determining her identity. Spencer buddied up with her mom’s cute lawyer-in-training, so she could read some of the case files on Wilden’s murder.
Despite Spencer still being in high school, a new grown man was way into her, so he probably won’t rat her out to her mom. Spencer also went back to Radley, and tried to find out more info about Tobey’s mom. She found evidence Wilden may have covered up Toby’s mom’s murder.
