There was at least one death and three more possible deaths in the Pretty Little Liars summer finale. Let’s dive in to the bloody mess! For a refresher on what happened last week, read my recap of episode 9.
The Pretty Little Liars summer finale opens with Spencer Hastings, Aria Montgomery, Emily Fields, Alison DiLaurentis, Mona Vanderwaal and Caleb Rivers trying to figure out how to save Hanna Marin from Noel Kahn. Spencer calls the police and tells them, “I think my friend’s been abducted.”
Meanwhile, Hanna has Noel tied up. She holds a knife and tells him to admit on camera that he’s A.D. When he only makes groggy noises, she says, “Fine, we’ll do it my way.” She cuts his leg.
The police talk the Liars. Toby Cavanaugh tells Marco Furey that this doesn’t have to be his last day, but Officer Furey assures him that they’ll make sure nothing bad happens to Spencer or the other girls.
Later, Hanna hears a news report and finds out that she’s a missing person. She makes a call and tells the person on the other end, “I need your help and I need you to come alone.”
Hanna tells Mona that she didn’t know who else to talk. Mona tells her that next time she needs to call her before she abducts someone and becomes a missing person.
Paige McCullers brings coffee for Emily and the other girls. Alison isn’t happy that Emily is there and says, “I just find it a little pathetic that she’s using this to get close to you.”
They leave Noel alone, still tied up. He hears a radio report that Hanna has been found alive. He starts struggling harder in his restraints.
Mona goes to The Radley and confronts Jenna Marshall. She tells her that if she stops looking for Noel and leaves the Liars alone, Mona will say that Jenna had nothing to do with Sara Harvey.
Caleb talks to Hanna. He tells her that she doesn’t see that they’re meant to spend their lives together. She starts kissing him and they have sex.
Alison tells Emily that she’s pregnant. As Emily comforts her, Alison kisses her. Emily is hesitant because she knows that Alison is vulnerable at the moment, but Alison assures her that’s not why she wants her.
Aria worries about Ezra Fitz when he’s late coming home and doesn’t answer Aria’s calls. She sees a news report that shows that he was reunited with Nicole Gordon.
Paige finds Emily to remind her that the paperwork for their job application is due. When she realizes that Emily slept at Alison’s house, she becomes concerned. She says, “She saw us getting close again and now she’s trying to drive a wedge in between us. Ali is the same person that she always used to be.”
Spencer finds Toby so that she can say goodbye to him. She tells him that she’s happy for him and then asks if she could kiss him one last time to say goodbye.
Hanna talks to the other Liars, telling them that they have to do something about the fact that she has Noel tied up. Aria suggests that they go talk to Noel and find out if he’s AD. They use a recording of themselves on speaker to convince the cops they’re still in the house after they sneak out to talk to Noel.
The Liars return to the room and discover that Noel is missing and he took the camera with him. They get a text from Noel that says, “Let’s swap. My thumb drive for your camera.”
Mona and Caleb tail Jenna, but discover that the person they were following was Sydney Driscoll disguised as Jenna.
Yvonne Phillips asks Toby if he’s sad to say goodbye to the house he built. He said that he’d just like to know who bought it.
The Liars arrive at the address for their swap. It’s a closed down school for the blind. When Hanna says, “Jenna could’ve come here when she first lost her sight” the PA system turns on and Jenna’s voice says, “I didn’t lose my sight. You took it from me.”
Jenna’s voice tells them to leave the thumb drive on the table, then the Liars are guided upstairs to where the camera is. Hanna grabs it.
As they’re leaving, Emily realizes she left her phone behind and Hanna goes back with her. Noel appears and says, “You really thought we’d let you leave? You know too much.”
Emily and Hanna run away to them, but Noel follows. Meanwhile downstairs, the other Liars haven’t left the house yet. Jenna walks in and points a gun at them.
Hanna and Emily get into a confrontation with Noel and Emily accidentally pushes him onto an ax, beheading him. His head rolls down the hall and the other Liars see it.
Someone shoots Spencer. Jenna tries to shoot her again, but Mary Drake knockers her out. She crouches next to Spencer and tries to stop the bleeding. Mary tells her, “Spencer, I would never hurt you. I’m your mother.”
The Liars search for Spencer and rush over to her once they find her. Meanwhile, a figure in black gloves drags away the unconscious Jenna.
An ambulance rushes away with Spencer. The ambulance drives past a car trash and we see that Toby and Yvonne are inside. Toby has a very serious head wound and could quite possibly be dead.
Jenna wakes up and asks about the person who dragged her away, wondering if they shot Spencer. They take off their mask and throw it down at her. She feels it and realizes that they’re AD.
At the end of the episode, a figure in black gloves looks at a collection of action figures based on the Liars. They put the one based on Spencer in a box.
