Pretty Little Liars 7×05 Along Comes Mary recap

Jenna’s (Tammin Sursok) return to Rosewood brought with it two other familiar faces on the latest episode of Pretty Little Liars.

If you haven’t seen the latest episode of Pretty Little Liars and you want to avoid spoilers, we suggest you stop reading now. If you have seen it and want to relive the action then keep reading.

Welcome home

Alison (Sasha Pieterse) was released from Welby but on the condition that Mary Drake (Andrea Parker) looked after her. Aria (Lucy Hale) was waiting for Ali when she returned and expressed concern about Ali’s new living arrangements. It didn’t take long for Ali to confront Mary about her part in Elliott’s (Huw Collins) plan but Mary denied all knowledge of it claiming that she was only looking for the money she was owed from Charlotte (Vanessa Ray). She claimed not to know that Elliott wasn’t who he said he was.

Ali searched her bedroom looking for money and clues as to what Elliott had been up to after trying to access her bank accounts only to discover that he’d stolen all of her money. Mary once again denied any knowledge of the missing money but assured Ali that she would get it all back. Doing something sensible for once, Ali went to Detective Fury (Nicholas Gonzalez) and reported the theft but was surprised to find out that Elliott had been sighted in Baltimore. Is he really still alive?

The red coat that the liars handed in to A.D. was returned to Ali’s wardrobe with a note telling her that her friends had pinned the murder on her. The note also confirmed that A.D. knew Alison wasn’t to blame.

This is not a test

Emily (Shay Mitchell) got so carried away on her date with Sabrina (Lulu Brud) that she slept in and missed her exam. She was turned away when she turned up at Hollis but when she returned home she got a message informing her that she had achieved 92% followed by a message from A.D. taking credit for sitting the test. Emily shared the development with Aria who warned her that the payback for A.D.’s ‘favour’ was likely to be massive.

Poor Sabrina, unaware of Emily’s murderous and secret-filled word, got the brush off from Emily twice during the episode leading her to think their romance was going nowhere. Emily eventually explained that she wanted to go on another date but gave no explanation for her cold behaviour earlier.

Caught in the act

Trying to find out more about who Elliott really was, Emily and Aria located his secret apartment where he’d been meeting someone to talk about his evil plans. Emily texted the contact on Elliott’s burner (which also contained a message stating that A.D. knew Ali didn’t kill Charlotte) in a bid to find out who he was talking to in the hope that he/she would turn up at the apartment. A quick search led the ladies to find a whole heap of fake passports, money and a highlighted copy of Twelfth Night by Shakespeare with the name Archer Dunhill in it. They also found a creepy Wilden (Bryce Johnson) shaped head and lots of photos of the dead police officer hidden behind a bed.

Their stint as detectives came to an abrupt end when Toby (Keegan Allen) arrived at the scene. He agreed to tell no one that they’d been there on the understanding that they left immediately. When quizzed as to how he found the apartment, Toby explained that the address was on documents discovered in Elliott’s abandoned car.

The big question

Ezra (Ian Harding) returned from his trip and Aria decided not to tell him about the Elliott mess. Ezra had explained that he’d been to see Nicole’s (Rebecca Breeds) parents to get their approval of his relationship with Aria. When she was alone in the apartment, Aria answered Ezra’s phone and was surprised to see that Nicole was calling. There was nothing but noise and music on the other end so after a call to Emily, Aria decided to delete the call and not mention it to Ezra.

Later Aria received a text from Ezra asking her to go to his place asap. When she arrived his apartment was full of candles and Ezra got down on one knee. Stunned by the proposal Aria didn’t know what to say… Is she going to tell him about Nicole’s call?

Tired of this love triangle

Spencer (Troian Bellisario) was on the hunt for Caleb (Tyler Blackburn) this week and ended up having to ask Hanna for help. Hanna apologised again and asked if she could help fix the damage she’d caused and Spencer told her to decide which man she’s in love with. Ouch! After failing to find Caleb, Spencer asked Toby for help but he refused saying he knew where Caleb was and that he needed some space. She also bumped into her almost hook-up Detective Fury and discovered he was part of Rosewood P.D.

Jenna’s new army

Jenna made a stop by Ali’s, which wasn’t warmly received and led to Ali revealing that she knew Jenna had been in contact with Elliott. Following that incident Jenna befriended Sara Harvey (Dre Davis) and welcomed back Noel Kahn (Brant Daugherty) into the fold. What are they planning I wonder?
