On a porch swing in front of Aria's house, Emily tells Aria that she got a note. Aria says she got one, too. They wonder if they could really be from Alison. They consider it a likely possibility, since the messages include secrets that only she could have known. Aria says she thinks she's playing with them, since that was basically her "favorite sport." Can you put that on college applications? They consider telling someone, but Aria can't say anything because the note is too dark of a secret. Aria says that even though she grew up here, she feels like an outcast, and Emily feels the same way. So they just sit and swing.
Laura Leighton is Hanna's mom (I'm really feeling ancient now), and she saw Holly Marie Mom today and wonders why Hanna didn't tell her that Aria was back. She also says that Holly Marie Mom didn't know that Hanna's father had split town. She hates telling that story. Hanna just says that she changed the story that they are happier without him and it was mutual. She says that people don't need to know that "they" got dumped. Melrose Mom tries to correct her, but since dad split on both of them, it really is a "they." Hanna's phone rings, and Melrose Mom says that if it's Mona she's going to stage an intervention. Hanna doesn't read her message, but Melrose Mom's phone rings and then the doorbell. A very young-looking detective and a policeman are at the door. They're there to pick Hanna up for stealing sunglasses. Guess Hanna never considered that there would be security cameras in the store. Sydney thinks there has been a mistake, but the very young and not-at-all-convincing detective tells him that he's pretty sure. They cuff her and take her down to the police station. She sits and considers binging on M&Ms in a chair while her mom and newbie detective boy converse very intimately. Her phone rings and she's got a message, "Be careful, Hanna. I hear prison food makes you fat. - A"
Melrose Mom grabs Hanna and they walk out. When they get to the car, Melrose Mom starts lecturing her about small towns and gossip and impressions. She doesn't understand why Hanna would steal when she buys her everything she "needs to be popular." She says that's not why she does it. Melrose Mom thinks that she's doing this to get her father's attention, but that in Rosewood there is no room for mistakes. Hanna apologizes, but MM says she'll deny that she did anything wrong and says she's taking care of it.
