The episode opened with Hanna sobbing with the Liars at her side in front of Caution tape and ambulances, a body bag going, etc.
So the girls are all at Spencer’s house except Emily and they were rehearsing an intervention for Emily. To tell her how when Hanna & Spencer found the earring Aria buried with Alison was found in Paige’s purse. Emily finally arrives and doesn’t believe the girls. Saying A could’ve planted the earring in Paige’s purse.
Then suddenly we’re at Rosewood High and Aria begins to fill in Hanna about the Maggie/Ezra situation. Hanna advises Aria to tell Ezra she visited Maggie because lies don’t keep bring you closer together, contradicting what Ali told the girls.
Spencer suggests the girls tell there parents about the new A but receive a creepy text and decide not to. (Stand down bitches. Play it my way and Emily stays safe.-A)
Flash to Radley where Mona escapes dressed as a nurse. The girls receive another text from A while in Hanna’s bedroom telling them to meet A at Ali’s dug up grave at 10 p.m. on a Sunday and bring Maya’s bag. Oh and they can’t tell Emily! Just then they hear something/someone downstairs. But it’s only Caleb.
Hanna calls Emily and Em informs her that she is going away for the weekend with Nate.
Spencer is out in town looking at some sign and guess who’s back? TOBY!!!! <3
And then they have a long kiss…
Suddenly we’re at Ezra’s apartment where he is writing a paper. After Aria receives a text from Hanna asking whether or not she told Ezra he has a son- that is very much alive! Despite what Maggie told Ezra when they talked. Just as Aria was going to tell Ezra someone knocks on the door. Assuming it’s Ezra’s neighbor who is constantly locking herself out Aria answers the door, and it’s Maggie!
But she informs Aria she has her own problems and plays along like they’ve never met.
So then Caleb is getting prepared for there meet up with A but Hanna walks in and notices Caleb has a gun to protect himself from A. Hanna gets mad and tells him not to bring it. He agrees not to.
Then there is creepy Mona in the black hoodie telling someone in what looks like a bathroom that she is here wherever “here” is.
And then Spencer & Toby get it in, lmao.
Then you see everyone getting ready for the A meet up. And Caleb brings the gun anyway.
Toby & Spencer depart. Mona talks to creepy A in a look alike lair.
So then it’s time to confront A. But she/he is late so Caleb goes to the Lighthouse place that Emily is staying with Nate and the girls follow. Emily is awoken in the cabin by a phone call from a blocked number. She answers and a distorted voice tells her to get out, you have one minute. Hell I would’ve been like…
But instead Emily takes her precious time and I was like….
Then Nate comes back to the cabin and Emily notices the paint splattered hiking boots he’s wearing are the same as a pair visible on Maya’s website in a photo. Emily tells Nate she wants to go get air but Nate tells her he will go with her. Emily says she wants to alone and walks away as Nate tells her to get coat.. she is out in the woods looking for a spot with cellphone service. And Nate pops up out of nowhere! He drags Emily back to the cabin and makes her watch a video he had of Maya. Then informs Emily he isn’t Nate St. Germain! He’s Maya’s ex- boyfriend… the TruNorth stalker! And he brought company- Paige! She’s the hostage who Nate threatened to kill since Emily “stole” from him.
The girls reach what looks like the cabin Emily & Nate was at, they search the place and it’s empty. Linden (Nate) here’s a creak outside and goes over to the window as Emily makes a mad dash outside and Linden chases her.
Emily makes her way to the lighthouse, losing track of Linden a.k.a “Nate”. Or so she thought! He appears and the begin to wrestle, oh and p.s. Linden has a knife!
But Emily kicks his ass and then stabs him!!!
And Caleb appears with his gun seeing Emily covered in blood standing over Linden’s body. He places the gun on a ledge and embraces a distraught Emily… but then POW! A gunshot!
The ambulances appear and it’s a longer version of the opening scene with Hanna crying.
The girls go to the hospital, Caleb is in surgery and they see Garret & Spencer’s mom. And this is when they found out that Garret has been deemed innocent.
At the end, Mona returns to the mental institute in her nurse get-up with another hooded figure. And just when you think, “Here we go again” with the mysterious faceless figure, we see that Toby is the one donning the hoodie!
note: a helps emily by telling her to get out, nate is coming- maya’s killer and the girls attempted to meet a with maya’s bag meaning they followed orders. a protected emily. toby is a, he is not the bad guy.
And then we found out Toby is apart of the A Team!
And then I realize he just slept with Spencer
And I just want to go to Spencer like…
But then I though about it….
You know how the message to the Liars from A saying meet A at the cemetery and Emily WON’T get hurt! Well did she get hurt in the end?!? No. And why is that- well first off A told her she had one minute to get out the cabin. Did she? No and what happened Nate appeared! Causing Caleb to get shot, and Emily to end up in the whole Linden knife fight.
So I think Toby was telling the truth in 3x11 when he said he would find out who A was and what the plan was. He never said how he would find out. I think he is trying to help the Liars take down A by acting as if he is A. And the big A let him be apart of the team because he has all the right motives. Alison tortured him just like she did everyone else.
And I also think Paige shot Caleb. She had ample time to get to the light house. I think she saw Caleb go in and decided to get some sort of revenge on one of the Liars since they claim she is A. Which hasn’t been verified yet obviously, but I think she has something to do with it. We never found out what happened to Paige after Emily ran off. Linden left Paige there. She could quickly get away. We never saw her until the paramedics, and authorities, etc. arrived.
So those are my theories… what’s yours?
p.s. That webisode was bull it was only 1 minute and 6 seconds. It also didn’t give away anything! I am going to look at it again and see if I missed anything. But I hope the upcoming ones are better.
