‘Pretty Little Liars’ spoilers: Maya’s cousin unveiled in new sneak peeks

Nathan emerges this week.

In our video look at Tuesday night’s “Birds of a Feather” episode of “Pretty Little Liars,” we have both the return of an important character (Jason), and the arrival of someone new who could play an integral role in the episodes ahead.

We reported previously that former “Vampire Diaries” star Sterling Sulieman was coming to Rosewood to play the character of Maya’s cousin Nathan, and he is going to leave a pretty important imprint on Emily’s life and grieving process after her girlfriend died during the season 2 finale. As for what sort of friendship will develop here, that has already become a point of some debate and controversy among show fans.

In this episode, the first scene featuring Nathan is pretty simple. Emily is starting up a new job at a coffee shop, and our new guest stops by to explain that he is going to be in Rosewood for a while. She tells him that they will talk later, and she goes about her business.

As for Jason, he is part of what is already a messy situation — the decision by Spencer’s mother to represent Garrett in court. There are so man twists and turns here that it is hard to even figure out where to begin. With Garrett suspected of killing Alison, Jason’s having a hard time understanding how someone who is his biological father’s wife would make such a move to actually help him. Could it be due to some suspicious floating around that Garrett was actually the father of Melissa’s miscarried child? That’s one of the only explanations we can think of.

Let’s just hope for everyone’s sake that Garrett is not actually Alison’s killer — after all, it would make this dysfunctional family a little bit less complicated.

As for our final preview video, all it really shows us is that Mona’s recent outburst in front of Caleb has led to her losing her visitation privileges for the time being. While this is bad news for a clearly-upset Hanna, it probably makes Caleb rather happy. After all, he has been trying for weeks to pry her away from “A.”
