Bad News Bears
This week’s episode of Pretty Little Liars saw everyone donning their detective hats to unmask Red Coat’s identity. Recently returned from their trip to Ravenswood, Spencer and Toby are armed with new information to help the case. Enlisting Caleb in the “A” hunt, Toby continues his investigation into who set the cabin fire.

Though all the Liars have banded together to kick their investigation into high gear, it’s not without some personal losses.

The principal manages to persuade Connor’s family to be appeased with Mike’s expulsion if they drop the charges against him, but the principal made one grave error. He insinuated to Aria that her brother’s mental problems were to blame. Once Aria confided to Ezra what the principal had insinuated, Mr. Fitz made sure his boss understood he was facing a law suit from the Montgomerys if it got out he had revealed Mike’s confidential medical history to Connor’s family. Case solved. Not only did the charges against Mike get dropped, but Mike is still allowed to attend Rosewood Day. This storyline was one of the most interesting stories of the season, and I hope it’s not completely over. When Ezra talked to the principal about Mike, the principal insinuated that he was aware of Ezra and Aria’s relationship. (More…)
