Season 2 Episode 8, Pretty Little Liars Recap, Save the Date

Emily is poisoned by steroid cream; Hanna’s parents split up again.

Oddly enough, it turns out that Aria and Ezra aren’t the worst at hiding their taboo romance in Pretty Little Liars. Miss Jenna here likes to put on a show from her house window, as she gets hot and intimate with that pedocop Garrett Reynolds.

Just because you’re blind, Jenna, that doesn’t mean ~windows~ cease to exist in the world. Perhaps it’s not the best idea to make out with your secret boyfriend where the whole neighbourhood can watch. Or maybe she enjoys an audience?

Season 2 Episode 7, Pretty Little Liars Recap, Surface Tension

Jason and Ezra lock horns at the Montgomery dinner party; Spencer’s dad withholds a possible murder weapon from his daughter.

Hey A, you lazy bitch. Stop slacking off! Other than a run-of-the-mill message and a complimentary gift basket at the beginning, A is hugely absent from the rest of this episode. Nonetheless, the girls still keep themselves busy with a lot of dysfunctional family drama. (Except for Emily, who virtually has no storyline this episode, other than the blatant foreshadowing that her shoulder hurts a lot.)

Season 2 Episode 6, Pretty Little Liars Recap, Never Letting Go

The girls participate in a high school fashion show; Hanna’s parents might be reconciling.

The girls still can’t decide whether Ian is actually Alison’s killer or not. Either way, there’s a general sense of relief amongst the group that their lives are normalizing again. Spencer is especially elated that all four of them are in a committed relationship right now. Since ‘normalcy’ is the last word anyone would use to describe Aria’s love life, she immediately complicates things by sneaking out for a secret rendezvous with Jason DiLaurentis.
