Pretty Little Liars - Don't Look Now

As Alison (Sasha Pieterse) and Jason (Drew Van Acker) struggle processing the news they had a mentally-deranged older brother who was institutionalized at Radley up until his death, the Liars search for proof that Charles DiLaurentis is indeed still alive. Their search is emboldened after a memory from Jason’s past suggests where Charles may have been staying, although the discovery of his brother’s grave gives the Liars pause as to the true story surrounding the forgotten member of the DiLaurentis family.

Interspersed between the scenes involving the search for information about Charles’ stay in Radley and the manner in which he died “Don’t Look Now” continues to offer flashbacks for the Liars‘ time in A‘s dollhouse. As Spencer (Troian Bellisario) struggles to deal with half a memory that makes her question what A may have forced her to do (which only increases her out-of-control anxiety), Aria‘s (Lucy Hale) memories finally force her to break down and seek solace from her father (Chad Lowe) by opening up about her experiences in the dollhouse.

Emily (Shay Mitchell) continues her attempts to help Sara (Dre Davis) despite her mother’s warning that the troubled girl needs more help than either of them can offer (while continuing to tease a possible romantic relationship between the two girls). Although she isn’t fighting flashbacks this week, things are any easier at the Marin household as Caleb‘s (Tyler Blackburn) attempts to protect Hanna (Ashley Benson) backfire causing her to keep pushing him further away.

Given how large a role the sanitarium has played in the series so far it’s not a surprise that Radley is connected to Charles. Despite the discovery of a grave stone the Liars are far from 100% convinced that Charles is indeed dead, and the confession Alison (Sasha Pieterse) hears from her father about why Charles was institutionalized certainly adds credence to the theory that Charles is the one behind the mask while offering a reason for wanting revenge on his sister and any one she might care about.
