'PLL' Bares The 'Truth' & All

The truth definitely came out during Truth Up Day at Rosewood High. Spencer, Emily, Hanna and Aria were locked down at school with their worst enemies, including A.
The girls found out that Vivian Darkbloom's claim ticket was for a red jacket that just so happened to have a phone number tucked inside. Well, of course, they called the number! The liars were scorned by a woman's voice during one phone call and then a guy repeatedly called back and asked if "Vivian's friend" (aka the PLLs) could meet up with him. Personally, I cannot wait to see what this guy has to tell us about Vivian Darkbloom.
Hanna is being threatened with expulsion because a nude picture of Kate was sent to everyone (literally everyone) at Rosewood High from Hanna's phone. However, Kate should really be more careful when taking off a sweater in public because she revealed that she actually has a birthmark that was not in the picture. The girls were pretty sneaky themselves and caught Kate admitting that she photoshopped and sent the picture. Also, I'd like to make it known that I am officially adding Isabel to my "A" list for the pure heck of it since she is so darn mean!
Aria tried throughout the episode to get Holden to crack about his secret, but he did not budge. However, things got a little suspicious after Holden roundhouse kicked Noel (I cheered) when he grabbed Aria's leg on the roof. Aria was searching for Caleb, but what the heck was Noel doing on the roof? Speaking of Noel, I hope I am not the only one bothered by his relationship with Jenna. At least they can be mad and creepy together.
Emily is trying her best to get back on the swim team and she found a little help -- from Mona! It seemed that the principal of Rosewood High accepted some bribes and let baseball players return to the team before they should have been allowed. Mona is shockingly tech-savvy and that did make her a little more suspicious. However, I will state now that I have always been Team Mona. I may eat my words later, but I may actually still be a fan even if she turned out to be A. Let's look at the bright side for now -- Emily's back on the swim team and Mona wants to know what shoes are appropriate for a swim meet (are they friends!?)!
Spencer went through a rough time during this episode. She has sat sadly by too many windows lately and I do not like it! Jason is back in Rosewood and he was obsessively searching for Spencer's dad. Well, we found out why -- Peter Hastings had an affair with Alison and Jason's mother and Jason is his son. Spencer's mom knew and no one told Spencer or Melissa. It also did not come as a surprise that Alison knew and basically told Spencer, but she did not really "hear" Ali at the time. I honestly think that will be a theme of this series for the viewers -- when A is revealed, there will be a lot of things that will have been said, done etc. that we will only hear during the shocking reveal.
"A" made it very well-known during this episode that he/she does NOT have a soft spot for Caleb. Unfortunately, Caleb left his laptop unattended in his bag after he fell asleep and guess who took it?
Tune in next Monday at 8 p.m. to see if A takes back the control.
