Pretty Little Liars: This is a Dark Ride

Aria, Emily, Hanna and Spencer are looking forward to some good old Halloween fun now that the traumatic events with Nate are behind them.

The episode begins with Mona creepily painting a mannequin head while she talks to A about a plan. It's Halloween and the girls talk about going to a party that night on a train. They'll be wearing surprise costumes from movies, as a part of the theme. Hanna's mother on the other hand is getting serious about Pastor Ted, from the look of things. A house they pass has a casket with Alison's name on it. Emily walks up to move it and the kid who lives there jumps out and scares her. Spencer is surprised to see Garrett in her house dropping something off for her sister. He wants closure he explains to her and she in turn asks him what he knows...
