This is how season three of Pretty Little Liars ends. With “A dAngerous gAme” and more questions raised than actually answered.
Honestly, that’s okay. Pretty Little Liars is at its best when the plot is mostly focused on asking the questions. When it does deign to answer the questions, things just get kind of boring. Case in point, the big Spencer and Toby reveals of this episode. Spencer, it turns out, only joined the A-Team because Mona told her Toby is actually alive. They meet again and Toby reveals he actually joined the A-Team to save Spencer, which he couldn’t tell her before because A is omnipresent. He can tell her now because, apparently, he has safe houses that Mona doesn’t know about which solves the problem I guess. The plot kind of shuts down there for a while so they can have their reunion. Also, nothing really comes of these revelations, they just kind of sit there taking up space.
Meanwhile, Emily and Hanna actually do the most of the legwork with the A plot, now that Hanna’s back in the game. Aria at least seems interested in the conversations, but she’s mostly busy breaking up with Ezra for the third time in as many episodes. Hanna’s real contribution is figuring out that Spencer is now on the A-Team and then posing as Red Coat to prove that they’re still on the same side. Sadly, this ends early in the episode. Emily’s part is even smaller, but is significantly more substantial, carrying the plot into season four. Like her step-brother, Jenna Marshall makes her reentrance in this episode. It turns out she’s actually dating Shana, who up until now had been relegated to a boring part of Emily’s side plot. They’re up to something sinister; Emily comes across the two of them meeting with Melissa. Later, they show up on the video which is still playing on Det. Wilden’s dash, even after the car has been pulled from the lake.
The biggest revelations of the evening actually come at the very end of the episode. It turns out that Mona was still on the A-Team primarily because she’d never discovered Red Coat’s identity. She changes her mind rather quickly after she is locked in a burning house with Aria, Emily, and Hanna. That, in and of itself, isn’t that interesting. However, it turns out that the Red Coat is actually Alison. This actually raises more questions than it can hope to solve, as Alison has done quite a bit of work in actually saving the Liars. Red Coat, as the orchestrator of all this, actually seemed to be intent on killing them, seeing as she set the house on fire.
