The episode begins with Aria, Hanna, and Emily paying Spencer a visit at the sanitarium. Emily tells Spencer that a body was found in the woods, but it wasn’t Toby’s. Despite hearing this, Spencer insists that she saw Toby’s body. Spencer then tells the girls that she wants to stay for some more time because she feels safe. The next morning, Emily tries to get more information out of her mother about the body found in the woods, and she says she will look into it and tell her later. Aria and Ezra are at the café together. Aria is a bit hesitant to be seen with Ezra, because he has applied for the teaching job. Maggie calls and asks Ezra to pick up Malcolm from a karate lesson. Ezra has the job interview, so he requests Aria to pick him up, but she is reluctant after what happened last time. In the end, he convinces her and says he will deal with Maggie. ..
