Alison did her best Princess Leia impression on Pretty Little Liars Season 7 Episode 2.
No, there was no gold bikini involved on this installment of the Freeform hit.
But Ali did send a desperate plea to Emily… via phone, not droid. But whatever. Just go with the analogy.
We all know what took place during Alison and Emily’s "sleepovers," so this connection wasn’t exactly a surprise.
However, did anyone out there expect Ali’s request to prompt an alliance between Emily and Mary Drake?!?
We also witnessed Mary and Elliott butting heads, with the former proving herself to be a tad more than we assumed. She’s definitely an interesting character, telling Elliott at one point that he’s going “too far” with Alison’s treatments.
It looks like we’ll find out on next week’s episode of Pretty Little Liars Season 7 just how far Emily will go to save her friend… with benefits.
Elsewhere, Ali’s twisted aunt also sat down with a newly-unemployed Spencer, at which point she spun a very dark tale of her admittance to Radley.
We learned a few things about Mary’s past here.
According to Mary, she was blamed for the death of an infant Jessica had been babysitting.
As a result, their parents allegedly thought Mary would be safer in Radley than in jail, although we’d have to say they were mistaken.
It’s not hard to picture Mary with a shiv, is it?
As for Hanna and Caleb, they made quality use of their first moment alone, although they did not do so in a manner that will satisfy their ‘shippers.
“In that room at the resort, before all the lights went off and someone pushed me down a hole, I was scared,” Hanna said, adding:
“But you were there. I always felt safe around you. Even when we weren’t getting along, you made me feel safe. Maybe that’s why what happened happened with us.”
Sounds great, right? Except… upon learning that the bar where she met Jordan had been torn down, Hanna essentially fell apart, ending her engagement in the process.
In other relationship news, which we know is all many viewers care about, Aria broke things off with Liam just moments before he told her he was back on her book.
Despite vowing to remain friendly, Liam wasted little time making things weird, comparing “Ezria” to Lolita and adding it’s likely to make the readers’ skin crawl.
How dare he, right?!? Even if certain details in that comparison do match up.
