Hanna (Ashley Benson) thinks her crime novel-reading hobby might actually be helping her to determine whose body is in Alison’s (Sasha Pieterse) grave. Simultaneously, Spencer (Troian Bellisario) seems close to deciphering who “Boardshorts” was in Ali’s journal.
Their sleuthing puts them in the increasingly-dangerous path of “A.” Meanwhile, Aria (Lucy Hale) and Emily (Shay Mitchell) each get stuck dealing with family drama.

Former “A” Teamer Shana (Aériel Miranda) came back to Rosewood. She told Emily (Shay Mitchell) that Alison (Sasha Pieterse) wanted to meet with her — only her.
Shana said she grew up in Atlanta, and was neighbors with Ali’s grandma. She was actually on Ali’s side the whole time, and was only using Jenna (Tammin Sursok) because they thought she was “A.” The other girls thought it was a trick, but Em believed her. READ MORE
On this week's Pretty Little Liars, an old member of the “A” Team returns to try and arrange a secret meeting between Alison (Sasha Pieterse) and Emily (Shay Mitchell) — Ali’s “favorite.” Spencer (Troian Bellisario) is suspicious because this is a former “A” loyalist (also, Alison seemed to hate them all equally).
Meanwhile, Aria (Lucy Hale) and Hanna (Ashley Benson) are both dealing with relationship drama, and all four girls still need to find Ali before “A” does.

It’s a typical soap opera dilemma: a woman with two loves must make a choice. For writer and actress Joanna Johnson, the decision was between playing Karen on The Bold and the Beautiful or becoming an executive producer on The Fosters, a groundbreaking drama about a lesbian couple and their adopted children.
The Fosters quickly became one of ABC Family’s biggest hits, and B&B cut short its own planned lesbian storyline. After The Fosters TCA panel, Johnson revealed she would like to return to B&B and shared how Bill Bell has inspired her writing.

Brad Bell always writes something funny back like, “Yeah, I think that’s a good idea. You should do that on your show.” But we do talk. The last time I went back he called me himself and said, “I don’t want to recast. Is there any way you can comeback if I consolidate the story as fast as I can?” and that’s when Heather Tom’s character takes over the company. Then my daughter [Caroline] got married and I was going to go back for the wedding, but they decided to do an elopement story. But we’re still in contact and I would love to go back… I wish I could do both but it’s really hard. I did it a little and it was running from CBS to Warner Brothers and trying to stay on top of things and it was just memorizing a lot of lines on top of [writing.]
