‘Pretty Little Liars’ Recap: Toby and Caleb Go on The Hunt For Red Coat
Caleb (Tyler Blackburn), Toby (Keegan Allen) and Ezra (Ian Harding) saved the day – sort of – on Tuesday’s episode of ABC Family’s Pretty Little Liars as our girls found themselves and their mothers in some precarious situations.
Note: Spoilers ahead if you haven’t watched Tuesday’s episode, “Crash and Burn, Girl!”
After the arrest of Ashley Marin (Laura Leighton), Caleb and Toby teamed up on a mission to clear her name and find out who is “A”/Red Coat? Complete with a cork board timeline full of post its and pictures, the two searched for details regarding the flight plan of the plane which carried Red Coat to the cabin in last season’s finale.
That led them to a small airport where they found Nigel Wright (Wyatt Nash). If you don’t remember him – I didn’t at first – he was Jenna’s (Tammin Sursok) date to Wilden’s funeral in the Season 4 premiere.
After the duo of boyfriends determines it was Nigel who faked the flight plan, which he says was for CeCe Drake (Vanessa Ray), they scuffle and end up in possession of his phone.
Later, we see Nigel talking with someone who appears to be Jenna, given the shot of her glasses and walking stick. So is Nigel lying? Or did CeCe start the fire? Who is really involved?
Meanwhile, Ezra stood up to the Rosewood High principal for the accusations against Mike (Cody Christian) destroying Connor’s car. His sweet gesture prompted a “Thank You” visit from Aria (Lucy Hale) and surely made Ezria fans drool. Getting all mushy and nostalgic, he tells her “You know there isn’t anything I wouldn’t do for you, right?”
Aww, Ezra. You steal our hearts. My real question though – Where did Jake (Ryan Guzman) go?
So while the boys were all being heroes/detectives, the girls especially Spencer (Troian Bellisario), were helping Hanna (Ashley Benson) deal with the fact that her mom could be getting 20 to life for murdering Wilden.
In the process, Emily (Shay Mitchell) again messed up her mom’s life by swiping the key to Wilden’s apartment from her desk and getting her suspended from the police force.
But was it worth it? Not really. The Liars found a lot of porn and one package from “A” with minimal cues. Then later in the episode, a car came crashing through the Fields’ house almost taking out her mother. Uh oh, looks like she’s really pissed “A” off this time.
OMG: Since we already knew about the car crash via commercials, my OMG moment was when the boys almost duked it out with Nigel.
Thank you, TV gods.: For the boys attempting to take the “A” situation into their own hands. Someone has to help these girls and they seem smart enough to do so.
Awk-ward: Aria explaining the true “rumors” about her and Ezra floating around Rosewood High to her father.
Hotness: Caleb and Toby working together ALL episode… do I have to say more?
Fab-u-lous: I love maxi dresses and I love Marc Jacobs therefore Spencer’s maxi dress/blazer combo takes my fashion award of the episode. Head to wornontv.net for more PLL fashion information.
Can. Not. Wait.: To find out where that cutie Jake went. Oh, and who killed Wilden.
Celebuzz (1-10): 6. Yet another confusing episode that didn’t leave me thrilled or anticipating more at the end. C’mon PLL, I need some answers.
So tell me PLL fans, what did you think of the episode? Do you think Cece set the fire? Are you hoping for an Ezria reunion? Sound off in the comments below!
