Like all the previous mid-season finales of Pretty Little Liars, Now You See Me, Now You Don't did not disappoint! It was action-packed and full of mysteries, drAma, and revelAtions!! The episode kicked off with Hanna's mom being released from jail and Cece becoming the main suspect of Wilden's murder! Toby finds out Shana is helping Wren to move in with Melissa. The Liars are misled by A by making them believe that Mona's in danger. Hanna finds out that Mona has been released from Radley so she along with Caleb spends the night in front of Mona's House keeping an eye for her. Spencer and Toby reunites and Aria kisses both Jake and ezrA!Like that hadn't happened before. And guess what? Red Coat is shown spying on Ezria! The Liars goes to Ravenswood after receiving a mysterious puzzle from A. There they attend a magic show where Aria is part of a trick. While Spencer and Hanna watches the show Emily is kidnapped by A! She is in a sawmill and red coat leads the others there. There they discover Two Red Coats! One stops the machine to save Emily while other is probably the one that started it. Aria follows the bad one and Spencer the other one. Aria kicks open the Ali mask from Red Coat's Face and its.......... CECE Drake!!!!!! Cece tries to escape but falls! Aria and others think she is dead and while they comfort Aria Cece escapes. The other Red Coat leads Spencer to A's new Lair! The new lair is organized unlike the previous layers. There are many gadgets and expensive accessories. They look around the lair and there are whiteboards showing a timeline of each girl's lives since the messages began, reaching all the way back to Ali's funeral. Hanna glances at some desks and sees a diary with a lock on it. She slides it into her pocket. The girls walk around the apartment and find a large computer system with multiple screens, all monitoring the police, watching the streets and the girls' alarm systems, as well. They now know how A has been keeping tabs on all of them.
Toby follows Shana who leads him to Mona! She is well and in no danger! Could she be A again? Who knows? Back in A's lair, the girls try to hack A's computer system. They call Caleb for help, but his hacking talents don't appear to be working. Caleb says that he will get on the next bus to Ravenswood.
Spencer finds A's bank account, and it seems like A has formed a corporation. According to the document, CeCe is on the payroll. The girls wonder if A paid CeCe to dress up as Red Coat to lead the girls away from Ali. Meanwhile, the person behind the painting continues to watch them.
Hanna opens a wardrobe and sees multiple men's suits and shoes. "I think A is a guy," she says, and the girls look at the suits. Emily picks up what appears to be a large scrap book, which is filled with pictures of Ali posing, and she is wearing the same outfit in each one.
Aria calls the girls over to Ali's timeline, and says that A hasn't only been following the girls, but also Ali, too. He has pinned Ali to the fire at the lodge has been following her trail to Ravenswood, according to the timeline. The girls stare at it in shock, and Emily says, "If Ali has been alive this whole time, then whose funeral did we go to?" hey see a picture on the timeline of a gas mask costume, and they also see a flier for a celebration of Ravenswood later that night. On the flier, written in red, is a note that says: Tonight, Alison, 11 PM. The girls realize that Board Shorts thinks Ali is going to be at the celebration. Spencer says that they need to find Ali first.
They are approached by Mrs. Grunwald, who tells them that it is dangerous for them to go chasing after Ali. Spencer says that she thought she never knew Ali, but Grunwald says that she lied to protect Ali.
According to Grunwald, Ali called Grunwald that summer to find out who was stalking her. Mrs. Grunwald believes herself to be a psychic, which is why Ali called her. The night Ali went missing, Mrs. Grunwald had a bad feeling. So, she drove to Rosewood and to the DiLaurentis house. She walked into her backyard and saw Ali reaching up from the ground. Mrs. Grunwald pulled her out of the ground. She was bleeding from the head and was very confused. She put Ali into the car and drove her to the hospital. When they got there, Mrs. Grunwald ran in to get help, but while she was gone, Alison ran away. We don't know if we can believe her! In Rosewood, Caleb boards a bus that will take him to Ravenswood. Back in Ravenswood, Aria wants to leave the town, but the others say that they need to find Ali before A does. Aria isn't sure she believes Grunwald, but the rest do, so they decide to buy costumes for the celebration.
A figure dressed in black watches the girls from the shadows he walks to A's apartment and walks inside, and when he sees that someone was in there, he angrily slams his wardrobe shut. He is Board Shorts, he is A. He is Ezra Fitz.
OMG!!! This episode left us with so many questions! Hope they are all explained properly and hope Ezra's not a double agent like Toby! Bring on the Halloween episode!
