Pretty Little Liars Recap: “Bring Down the Hoe”
Spencer’s (Torian Bellisario) shifty behavior regarding Toby finally made the other girls demand what Spencer was hiding. She revealed how A had been leaving clues for Toby about his mother’s apparent murder.
Toby was upset Spencer broke his confidence, and Spencer was upset he seemed to have too much trust in A. In the end, Toby followed all of A’s clues right to Dr. Palmer’s car. When he tried breaking in, the cops showed up. He had to quickly make a run for it.
Doesn’t this seem like it happens every time? (Resounding answer: Yes). Well, at least Toby got away for once, but he still needed answers. Does A actually have them, or have they just been playing Toby the whole time?
Hanna (Ashley Benson) met a hunky guy named Travis, who was sort of stalking her. It turned out he was a witness to Wilden’s murder. He saw Ashley drive away, before hearing shots fired, and a blonde woman flee the scene. He kept quiet, because there was bad blood between his dad and Wilden. Also, the next day A had left an envelope full of hush money.
Travis couldn’t take the guilt, and anonymously left the money for Hanna. Since he was pretty obvious about it, however, she confronted him. Hanna was able to convince him to go to the police and tell the truth. Will Ashley be released now?
Also, a while back it was announced Caleb would be leaving Rosewood and joining Pretty Little Lairs spinoff, Ravenswood. Could Travis be Hanna’s next love interest?
Spencer, Toby, and Emily (Shay Mitchell) went to the school hoedown together. The little trio reminded me of how much I liked Toby, Emily, and Maya as a threesome back in the day. (Sigh). Emily and Paige were still having problems and hadn’t gone to the dance together.
Emily made a romantic gesture, and by the end of the night, Emily and Paige were smiling and slow dancing together. It was pretty sappy, and I tried not to roll my eyes too much. Maybe it all meant these two kids really will be able to make things work, once Paige leaves for Stanford.
