What’s Inside the Trunk? A dead pig. The little liars believing their being set up begin to flee except for Hanna who does her best to wake Mona. Mona is able to take the video from the police car and flees with the girls.
Back at the house, the girls confront Mona about how she got the car from the lake and what does she actually know. So she reveals to them which crimes she did commit and which she didn’t. The next morning Mona appears to be gone but in actuality she went to pick up coffee. Mona is determined to find out who Red Coat is and she’s expecting help from the girls.
Mona is taking them to her lair when they get stuck in traffic due to what they thought was the cop car from last night. Instead they see that there’s a body next to the car. Darren Wilden is dead and now the girls will become suspects.
They reach the lair. Mona is showing them footage. In one of the clips Wilden was talking to an accomplice, whom Mona claimed was Spencer’s sister, when the footage begins disappearing. Someone hacked into Mona’s computer and erased all of her files. They don’t even have enough time to freak out before they hear child outside. A group of little girls are playing outside and each of them were gifted a doll that was named after all of the “Liars” and Mona.
Emily and Hanna are in their room when Emily’s mother comes in. Emily tells the girls about Allison’s mother moving back. To Hanna this is even more proof that it was Allison that removed them from the fire but Emily still doesn’t believe it’s true.
Spencer and Toby are searching among the ashes of the burned building. Spencer needs to find something that help identify Red Coat when she begins to try and convince Toby that maybe Allison really is back. He doesn’t believe her and tells her that Allison died two years ago. She doesn’t have time to convince as she sees another person is with them, Unfortunately the moment she told Toby this the mysterious third party made a run for it.
Emily goes to Allison’s mom’s new house. She offers to help the lady move her stuff. One of the boxes just happened to be designated for Allison’s s room. Where her mom had kept all of Allison’s things. Later Emily calls to tell Hanna about the creepy shrine. Their call has to come to an end though because Hanna is helping Mona lock up some things. Weirdly enough Mona is believing they could be friends again and thinks this bonding would lead to it.
Spencer is trying to get an alibi for her and her friends but with no luck. Toby takes her mind of it by cooking her breakfast. She’s happy and calling her boyfriend again when he gets a message from “A”. Yet he doesn’t tell her about it.
Emily and Aria are at the lunch. Even though Aria and her ex had called it off, she’s still attracting to him and can’t stop looking. But she has to because the Vice Principal is watching her like a hawk. She only begins to truly freak out when she gets called into the Vice principal’s office. She believes he’s called her because some concerned student had sent in proof of Aria and Ezra. Luckily he just wants her mom to sign some papers.
Hanna thinks she’s playing Mona but she’s remembering how good their friendship used to be. After their shopping trip, the girls decide to talk about boys. The conversation is strained and the silences are awkward. Hanna claims she had a good time but Mona makes it known that she knows all about Hanna’s plan. In order to win Hanna’s trust, she hands over the video.
Emily is with Paige her girlfriend. Paige wants Emily to come to Stanford with her. She wants to get as far away from their home town as humanly possible. Emily agrees to go. As she is taking out the trash, Jenna decides to have a little talk. She was friends with Wilden but that’s not why she approached Emily. She wants Emily to pass on a message to Toby. She’s sorry about what she did to him.
Spencer gets a package from “A”. Inside is a photo of Wilden with a threatening message on it.
The town does an impressive turn out for Wilden’s funeral. The liars even make a showing. However they believe that “A” may have left a message in the casket. Splitting up they each going searching for where the casket is being stored. Spencer is the one to find him. Mona is also there. She claims she got a message from “A” as well. “A” had left a cell phone in the casket with Wilden. When Spencer calls one of the contacts; it’s Hanna and she wants to know what Spencer is doing on her mom’s phone.
The girls don’t know what this means. Is Hanna’s mom the next target? For now they decide to focus on the funeral. Someone else is attending the funeral but the mystery woman isn’t removing her heavy veil. Not even when she goes into her car.
Toby is driving the lair to drop off to “A”. The stalker knows something about his mom and he’s trying to protect her.
A new cop is on the scene and he’s suspicious why the girls attended the funeral of a man who practically stalked them. Emily claims they’re supporting their city officials but will anyone believe them if “A” sends in her footage of the girls at the crime scene.
The woman in the mysterious veil has on an mask that looks freakishly like Allison on one side and the other side is burned.
