It’s really hard to take the Evil Emoji seriously when they pepper all of their texts with cute little emojis, but I guess setting Aria on fire definitely helps to make us fear them. Attempted murder tends to do that. Hanna’s bridal shower wasn’t going so well in the first place, but it officially ended when Aria is taken away in an ambulance with second-degree burns. Seems a little implausible that a fireplace could be turned up so high that it explodes like that, or that an air conditioner could create that kind of wind, but lets just assume that the Emoji had time to break into the loft and tamper with everything and wasn’t just hacking the electronic controls. This ‘A’ is getting serious, trying to run Emily over, attempting to set Aria on fire. Now if only they would cut the emojis out and make their threatening messages a bit more serious. I can’t help but get distracted by the cute little flame emoji in the middle of their threatening message. This is either a big clue as to who the culprit is or it is a way to throw us all off. I mean you wouldn’t expect Byron to be using these emoji’s now would you? That or it’s the show’s way of wanting to stay hip with the young people. Either way I don’t like it. It just makes me laugh and not take this ‘A’ seriously. I mean how can you really?

Ezra is adorable, rushing to Aria’s bedside with provisions! If extra large sweatpants and gummy bears don’t make you swoon then I don’t know what will. Maybe Ezra’s dramatic reading of fashion magazines will do the trick. It is clear to see that there is still something between Ezra and Aria. They have history and they know each other so well. Ezra is the one to make Aria laugh the hardest; he clearly knows exactly what to say and what to do to cheer her up. Unlike her current BF Liam. No Liam, I don’t want something from the cafeteria, I have gummy bears! Get out of here and let Ezria write their book and snuggle and eat gummy bears in peace! Oh ya Aria is now Ezra’s writing partner on his novel. With a snazzy new title as co-author Aria is just as curious as us as to why Ezra wanted to write this book with her. He claims it is because he needs her to help him give Nicole a voice. He will get too bogged down with wanting everything to be factual and accurate and she won’t have the same problem as him. I think it’s because he wants her to stay around a while longer. As I said before Ezra and Aria are always drawn to each other, especially in times of struggle or pain. Because they went through everything they did together they are like each others security blankets. With Ezra still grieving the loss of Nicole it is understandable that he would want to take comfort in the person he has always gone to before. And now that she is in the same city as he is he finally has the chance.

Emily is determined that the person driving that SUV was Melissa but now that Melissa is back in London who has been driving it all over Rosewood? Tanner’s witness statement claims that an attractive brunette was seen at the Two Crows Diner using the payphone, which is an accurate description of Melissa but it also describes Mona, Spencer, Aria, and Emily herself not to mention probably a bunch of other women, it wasn’t a very descriptive description if you ask me. But based off of that Tanner drags Aria in for a lineup with a bunch of other unknown girls. I guess Aria would be the first assumption since she was the only one to have left the hotel that night. However what about Mona or Melissa? It looks like Aria is just a set up anyways because as she is leaving she sees Sara Harvey, or someone that looks a lot like her, leaving the police station from a side door. Could she be the eye witness? If so she’s not really a reliable witness. And why did Tanner need Aria to come in for a line up? If Sara was the witness it’s not like she doesn’t know who Aria is or what she looks like, she could have just told her it was Aria in the first place. Perhaps it wasn’t Sara we saw at all, maybe it was Bethany Young or someone related to her. There have been so many theories floating around regarding her. Why haven’t we seen her face? Could it be because we have seen her before? Perhaps she has a twin sister who we are well acquainted with. Why was she the one wearing Alison’s clothes the night she was killed? Is she even really dead?

For now it looks like we are being thrown another red herring in the form of Mona. Mona’s pink plastic dice give her away. Was she the mysterious caller from the 2 Crow’s Diner? She does fit the description of a pretty brunette and she does have the aforementioned pink dice keychain. But perhaps Mona isn’t the bad guy. After all she did state to Emily that whatever she does always ends up going wrong. What starts as the best of intentions ends up in the trash. Could she have called the DiLaurentis house for some innocent or noble reason but set in motion the events that would later lead to Charlotte’s death? This line just seemed to be foreshadowing Mona’s innocence, plus would it really be a big shock to have the first A be the last A? I’m hoping for some big new A reveal. Something that takes us back to the beginning and explains all of the unanswered question from all the previous seasons. I guess Mona could be a part of that but she wouldn’t be the big bad. There must be something much more shocking being set up. Or at least I hope it isn’t as big of a let down as the last A reveal.
