‘Pretty Little Liars’ Season 4: Putting the Puzzle Pieces Together

Pretty Little Liars Season 4 Episode 19 Shadow Play (15)

Fans of Pretty Little Liars have been waiting for quite a while for the 1940’s film noir episode that aired on Tuesday night; and they were not disappointed by an amazing episode that gave viewers an inside look into the mind of Spencer (series regular Troian Bellisario), drug-addled or not.

The episode entitled “Shadow Play” may have been jam-packed with amazing fashions (didn’t the girls look incredible in those outfits?), set dressing, hairstyles and period vehicles, but it also set the stage for Spencer to find another piece to the puzzle that is “A”.

As viewers know, the big reveal over the last few weeks is that hot English teacher and off-again, on-again boyfriend of Aria – Ezra Fitz himself (series regular Ian Harding) – is the big bad “A” who has been tormenting the four girls of Rosewood since a year after Alison’s (recurring guest star Sasha Pieterse) disappearance.

But the bigger issue is why is Ezra doing this to the girls? And, more importantly, what happened between Ezra and Allison to cause him to put this crazy revenge plan into play?

There will, assuredly, be clues inside the pages of Allison’s journal that Hanna (series regular Ashley Benson), Spencer and Emily (series regular Shay Mitchell) found inside Ezra’s desk drawer at the school. And, thanks to Spencer’s film noir dream she got one step closer to putting that puzzle piece into place.

There were subtle changes made to Allison’s stories, obviously by “A” (aka Ezra) and once Spencer compared the pages to the pictures she took on her phone, she knew she just might be one step ahead of him – FINALLY!

But given what was shown in the trailer for next week’s episode, the proverbial sh*t is going to hit the fan between Aria and Ezra and another big puzzle piece just might move into place.

If you want to find out what happens next to the girls of Rosewood in the fourth season of ‘Pretty Little Liars’, make sure to tune into ABC Family on Tuesday, February 18 at 8/7c.
