First we’re led to believe that Lucas is working with A to torture the girls. Then, in an anti-climactic twist, we find out he simply gambled away Caleb’s life savings on a basketball tournament.
Things aren’t adding up. For one, Lucas seems too logical to gamble on a sporting event. And secondly, what basketball tournament is he betting on in the middle of January?

After countless empty leads - from beaded bracelets to medical records - “Pretty Little Liars” finally gave viewers a substantial clue about the possible mastermind(s) behind A on Monday night.
In possession of what could be A’s cell phone, the girls consider reaching out to Caleb for help. Hanna wasn’t too keen on involving her boy toy, suggesting they call technical support instead.
But after some convincing from Emily – “These are not highlights, Hanna. This is glass in my hair” – she conceded.

After a scandalous Halloween special, “Pretty Little Liars” brought us back to the present when season 2 returned on Monday night.
And while I’m happy to have my favorite “little liars” back on the tube, Sasha Pieterse’s absence was palpable.
Playing the late Alison DiLaurentis in flashbacks, the 15-year-old’s screen time never totaled more than a few minutes per episode. But now that we’ve witnessed her acting chops in the Halloween special, the show feels blasé without her.

The flashbacks don’t do Alison justice. As it turns out, she’s more evil than her frenemies would have us believe.
The special Halloween episode of “Pretty Little Liars" was interesting - and not just because Hanna was wearing a fat suit.
It was the first time we got to experience Rosewood through Ali’s eyes (and Jenna’s, for that matter. But, first things first.).

Last night’s episode of “Pretty Little Liars” was bananas.
The non-linear mid-season finale was so action-packed and shocking that I might not have survived it without DVR. (I had to watch the end sequence four times before completely digesting the exchange between Jenna and Garrett in the police station restroom.)
Though producers have chosen to leave us in the dark about who A is until the series finale (and who knows when that will be), they’ve given us enough information to make sure we stay tuned in the meantime.

The liars made a lot of progress this week. They finally stuck up for themselves – confiding in Dr. Sullivan about A and everything he/she/they (who knows) has/have been up to.
But before you breathe a sigh of relief, this is “Pretty Little Liars” we’re talking about.
Every step forward ultimately results in two steps back.
