5. House Blows Up – When news breaks about new information on the Jane Doe buried in the DiLaurentis’ yard. The Liars, along with Caleb, Toby and Ezra gather at Emily’s house in time for the Rosewood Police Chief to arrive at the press conference. The Chief announces that the body buried has been identified as Bethany Young, a runaway patient from Radley Sanitarium. When he also mentioned Alison’s ‘alleged’ kidnapping the Liars become even more on edge. As the press conference comes to an end there was a large boom and the windows of Emily’s house shatter. Everyone runs out of the house to find out what happened and discovered the Cavanaugh house on fire and rubble covering the street. As Toby runs off to get answers from his destroyed house the Liars’ phones begin to beep. A had reawakened.
Why I love this moment so much, I don’t really know. It wasn’t because the house exploded because somehow on this show that wasn’t the biggest thing in this moment; I guess because in this case A literally returned with a boom. I mean yeah we got an answer to the question with the grave but it also leads to like a dozen new questions, which I guess should have been expected. Who wants easy when it comes to television, I guess that’s what makes mystery based shows kind of really addicting; nothing like drama and suspense to keep you watching.
