Ashley shows up to ask what's up with Caleb, presumably he brought his wonderful letter because he is wonderful, and Hanna asks the same questions, which is: Why, given Ashley's whole deal, is she batting for him now?
Ashley: "First because he's leaving town, so it's no skin off my ass. Secondly, because you were totally right the entire time: He is a much better person than I am."
Hanna: "That is a push."
(Actually they are both pretty awesome.)
Emily has a flashback to this time Alison came over right after Hilton Head, I think literally between all the other things and the big night death, to drop off a snowglobe -- containing, duh, the "key" that suddenly exists in this episode -- at her house, because they were secretly lesbians in love who just happened to be neither. Verbatim, just in case it matters: "I brought you a present back from my trip, but you have to keep it a secret. I didn't bring anything back for the other girls, so if they ask about it, you have to lie. It's vintage, my grandma gave it to me. I wanted you to have it. You're the only one that really understands me, Em. The only one that I can completely be honest with. I have to go, I have a prior engagement. Don't have any fun without me. Make sure you keep that in a safe place. It's a lot more valuable than it looks."
Emily cracks that shit open, and what do you know. Thanks, flashbacks. Next week they'll have a flashback like, "Hey, remember when we killed Alison as a group?"
OMG I totally forgot about that until you said.
Whatever, the fallout from the whole thing with Aria -- and by the way, I forgot but at some point she deletes the fake "website page" Hanna made for her because she is the Almighty Shusher and needs to have some kind of moral compass -- the resolution to Ezra having proposed ill-advised marriage to some girl on a Florence trip, or maybe he killed her and we'll find out next season that this happened, was that they both put on giant brown-paper grocery bags with faces markered on them and took a picture so they can have a picture together even if it's just their totally incriminating selves, clothes, and his apartment in the picture. So dumb, so very Aria, so very very whatever. /p>
Spencer gets a text from an anonymous number and, since that's never happened to her before on this show or even in this episode, assumes that it's legit. She heads into the legitimately fucking freaky Funhouse, and immediately gets locked inside one of those darkroom door-things from high school where the Lazy Susan goes all the way around you before you can go to the other side, and that's when A (presumably) jams a crowbar, literal, in the door.
