‘Pretty Little Liars’ review: At least Caleb and Hanna are happy…

Tuesday night’s new episode of “Pretty Little Liars” was an eventful one, and it was also one where we the return of a number of memorable characters — including the last name of “Kahn,” which was the setting for a party attended by the likes of Aria and Spencer. They were invited there courtesy of new character CeCe, and we can pretty much say that this is the worst party of all time.

What was supposed to be a fun occasion ended up being extremely serious, and also a bit scary — here were the same stamps present that Emily remembered from “that night,” and there was also Jenna, who admitted to lying when it came to a few details about what happened with her. Aria managed to eventually escape the worst “truth or dare” game ever courtesy of Ezra’s creepy brother, who actually shared a few surprising details about her boyfriend; meanwhile, Spencer ended up accomplishing her goal of getting a UPenn application to someone at the party — at least according to what CeCe told her and the email said at the end of the episode.

When it came to Emily this week, she was quick to find herself surrounded by sadness courtesy of one thing — the revelation that Maya left videos about her on her website. It’s not a surprise to see that she was emotional, but it took a turn for the worse when Paige caught her looking at them. What was nice is that these two, rather than screaming about this, actually decided to handle it in a pretty adult way and actually talked things out a little bit.

On the romance front, we also had a pair of hook-ups — Hanna and Caleb (who certainly seem to be resolving their differences), and Hanna’s mom with her new male suitor that she met earlier this season. The final shocker of the episode did come on the romantic front, but it was not exactly so cheery — the revelation that Ezra got someone pregnant right after high school, and this is why he moved and changed his last name rather than just tension with the rest of his family. Aria hasn’t stormed out on him yet … but this is one major stumbling block that this couple is going to have to overcome.

Overall, there was some major movement in a few stories this week — but also still plenty more questions to be answered.  What did you think about this episode as a whole? To check out some more spoilers on the rest of season 2, be sure to visit the link here.
