Get ready to welcome back a couple of familiar faces to “Pretty Little Liars.” Paige and Mrs. Grunwald return to the Freeform series in episode 8 of Season 7.
The last episode of “Pretty Little Liars” left off with some jaw dropping moments. Aria (Lucy Hale) ultimately told Ezra (Ian Harding) about the murder of Elliott/ Archer (Huw Collins) and accepted his proposal. The two were getting ready to elope when the FBI came knocking on Ezra’s door, revealing that his ex-girlfriend, Nicole (Rebecca Breeds), might still be alive.
Meanwhile, the others Liars discovered that Noel Kahn (Brant Daugherty) broke into Toby (Keegan Allen) and Yvonne’s (Kara Royster) Airstream and stole the old file on Mary Drake (Andrea Parker). After learning that Alison’s (Sasha Pieterse) Aunt Carol had a secret storm cellar, the ladies decided to drive out of town to investigate. What they found inside was shocking. Before her death, Jessica DiLaurentis was investigating her daughter’s disappearance. She knew that Alison wasn’t dead, but didn’t know what had happened. She had files made on everyone, but Aria’s file was missing. A file on Mary also revealed that she had another child while at Radley.
They didn’t get too much time to investigate because Spencer’s (Troian Bellisario) car alarm went off, luring them outside. Once locked inside the vehicle, an explosion went off inside the cellar.
The explosion might have ruined their chances of uncovering more clues, but that’s not going to stop the Liars. Aria and Spencer will visit the doctor who delivered Mary’s baby in the hopes of getting more answers. But Hanna (Ashley Benson) is pretty confident that she knows who A.D. is — Noel Kahn.
The evidence is pretty damning. Besides catching him with Mary Drake’s file, Hanna also receives a visit from Ravenswood resident Mrs. Grunwald (Meg Foster). The psychic former sorority housemother warns Hanna that a “threat” to her is close. And Noel just happens to pop up behind her at that moment.
A promo video for episode 8 also shows that Noel will be behind the wheel of a car that strikes Caleb (Tyler Blackburn). But is this real? Or some sort of dream?
Other juicy drama to look forward to in episode 8 is the return of Paige (Lindsey Shaw). Emily (Shay Mitchell) hasn’t seen her ex in ages, yet Paige is back in town to apply for a swim coach position at Rosewood High School. Unfortunately that’s the same job that Emily is in the running for. Awkward!
“Pretty Little Liars” Season 7, episode 8 airs on Freeform on Tuesday, August 16 at 8 p.m. EDT.
