The girls try to resume a sense of normalcy in their lives, but even the simple tasks of dating and extracurricular activities meet with strife. Emily must deal with a jealous teammate, Paige (recurring guest star LINDSEY SHAW - 10 Things I Hate About You, Aliens in America, Ned's Declassified School Survival Guide), who is threatened by Emily's return to the pool, as Aria and Ezra plan their first date out in the open. And Hanna is still stuck playing "A's" game, but the next hurdle might just have complications for one of the other girls. With "A" pulling the strings and making matters worse, will the girls be able to weather the storm and lie their way out of it, or will they have to face the ugly truths? Meanwhile, Spencer turns to Alison's brother, Jason (recurring guest star PARKER BAGLEY), for information about the night they believe Alison died, only to have to face part of her unpleasant past with Ali.
