The girls try to pay tribute to Alison's memory, but they are still being faced with unresolved issues. Aria has an unpleasant encounter with her father's former mistress and Spencer must face a vengeful Melissa while Hanna is trying desperately to get her boyfriend to forget the 'old Hanna.' But with "A" taunting them every step of the way, the girls will find that leaving the past behind is much harder than they first thought.

  • TRIVIA (3)

    • Both Spencer and Melissa use laptops that resemble Apple MacBooks.

    • The date on Melissa's Russian Revolution paper is 3/24/04, while the date on Spencer's paper is 9/24/10. This leads us to believe that the two are around six years apart in age.

    • When Spencer is copying her sister's essay from her computer, you can see a picture of Torrey DeVitto (who plays Spencer's sister Melissa) and Jessie Baylin (the blond on the right side of the picture), who is a singer and wife of Nathan Followill from Kings of Leon.
