Things don't add up on 'Pretty Little Liars'

I’m confused.

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?

Every time it seems “Pretty Little Liars” is throwing viewers a bone – offering some clue as to who’s behind A's cryptic texts – they take it right back.

We won’t know for sure until A is revealed at the end of season 2, but there’s a chance “Pretty Little Liars” will take a “Pulp Fiction” approach. Maybe when the puzzle is completed, viewers will look back at the pieces and make sense of everything that’s happened.

Of course, there’s also a chance that the season 2 finale will air and people will be left completely dumbfounded. Only time will tell.

As for last night’s episode:

Spencer heads to the city to check out the address left on a receipt in the attic of her lake house. (Why she didn’t just Google the address is beyond me.) She ends up at a rehabilitation center for the blind that Jenna once frequented.

There, a boy from the center teaches her a bit about her “old pal.” Apparently Jenna is really good at reading people. She taught the boy to recognize someone’s nerves by feeling for their pulse.

Before leaving, Spencer steals a record book that includes the times all students and visitors checked in and out on the night of Alison’s death. Surprise! Garrett checked Jenna out that night and she didn’t get back until the next day.

Upon getting back to Rosewood, Spencer runs into a heartbroken Mona. It seems she needed some retail therapy after Noel broke up with her. What happened to skinny-dipping the night before? Something smells fishy.

Meanwhile, Aria agrees to go on a date with Holden, but only to stalk Mr. Fitz, who has made it clear the two can’t be together. But don’t feel bad for Holden just yet. He didn’t seem to mind lovelorn Aria’s company, saying they can both take advantage of pretending to date each other. This is going to end well…

Hanna had quite a few frights on last night’s episode. First, she had to watch someone remove the giant picture of her wearing her homecoming crown. She ran into a bathroom stall to cry about it, and ended up walking out to a flooded sink and a little wooden boat.

She later comes face to face with Lucas when he breaks into her house wearing a black hoodie – the preferred clothing item of all “PLL” suspects.

He tries to tell her something in her room, but she sneakily dials Caleb’s cell phone so he can find her in her house. (Her mother, who is also home, hears none of this and continues to go about her business.)

As we already know, Lucas came clean about stealing Caleb’s $4,000 and using it to place a bet on some made-up basketball tournament – January Madness, perhaps? He says he’s been driving around the East coast selling his comic books to pay Caleb back. So does that mean it wasn’t Lucas in the greenhouse before?

That night, the girls open their Chinese takeout boxes to find a bunch of worms.

And then a text: “This is what live bait looks like. Now we’re even b*****s.”

What, no fortune cookies?

What did you think of last night’s episode? Are you glad Maya is back? Or is she hiding something?

    was insulted by the lucas plot line. am i really supposed to believe that after lucas fails at committing a crime, he calls a crisis hotline to talk about it? and are the girls that stupid to believe that? why is lucas even relevant in the show to begin with? and with jenna "moving" there goes the only good character besides alison. how does caleb have 4k anyway? from hooking up illegal apps and ringtones? every guy character in the show besides maybe aria's father is painful to watch

    I am a huge fan of this show. I love the twists and turns of it, but last night was just too confusing. Lucas is sketchy and is definitely afraid, while something is upsetting Maya. I even had difficulty explaining to my husband what was going on. Someway or another, everything will connect. It's just going to be a lot of confusion for this season.

    It was a confusing episode. There has always been alot of twists & turns, but this season I am going crosseyed from all the back & forth side to side up & down plot lines!!!

    I am hoping there is a reason for all this, but we will have to wait for the seasonal finale!!

      That's because the commenters are most likely teenagers with the mindset of children.
