“Pretty Little Liars” always makes an effort to teach us something with each passing episode, whether that be the motivations of some of its characters, or if there is a new villain revealed. What we learned through tonight is that Andrew Campbell is hardly the man the police suspected.
Upon his release from the authorities, Andrew was quick to snipe at some of the women, calling them all toxic influences who were more or less putting a curse on the town. Will he come around? Maybe, but you have to expect him to be upset when you consider the circumstances. The Liars (or at least Aria) wanted some of his help, and he ended up being set up by someone to take the fall for the entire Dollhouse. He has a chance to move forward, but whether or not he will remains to be seen.
As for the other big stories of the night, Alison started to get a little closer to Lorenzo, and not everyone else seemed to be particularly on board with this. Specifically, what motive does she have? With her history, it takes a heck of a long time to get some other people to trust you again.
Meanwhile, Sara is still trying to move forward, and Ali and Jason finally got enough information that Charles was more than just an imaginary friend. There is photographic evidence, and we’re now at the point where Kenneth is going to have to start providing answers.
In the end, this was not the most eventful “Pretty Little Liars” ever, but at least we did learn something. Just not a ton. Grade: B-.
