Pretty Little Liars: The Lady Killer

With Garrett's trial for Maya's murder starting, the town of Rosewood has become a media spectacle. At odds with her friends over Paige, Emily doesn't know where to turn when the media attention becomes too much for her. "A" sees this as a perfect opportunity and takes advantage of the situation and sends Aria, Emily, Hanna and Spencer on a path to a possible truce. But is "A's' peace offering real or just a trap for a much darker ending?

Meanwhile, Aria, Emily, Hanna and Spencer are betrayed as someone very close to them is revealed as part of the "A" team.

People are gathered around the area and it has been cordoned off by the police. A cop asks Emily who is also at the scene if she knew the victim and if the victim who is now deceased, was a friend. The scene then flashes back to two days earlier. Three of the girls are together with Emily slated to arrive. It’s an intervention of sorts that they have planned for Emily. They basically are going to try and make Emily see the truth about Paige. Emily later arrives and they try to make her see reason. ..
