“Pretty Little Liars” recap (6.9): The Prom is Dark and Full of Terrors

The Mom club bursts into the unlocked (?!) DiLaurentis house, and Veronica starts hollering for Ken to show himself. His car is in the garage and his scotch is on the table, alongside an evidence envelope with a picture of baby Charles inside. The moms all gasp when Rhys Matthews appears out of thin air.

Spencer tries to stop Ali from finding Charles, and begs her not to follow her worst instincts. Ali is desperate to know why Charles hates her so much, and accuses Spencer of never really liking her anyway.

Caleb shows up to prom, wearing an ascot like he’s Fred from Scooby Doo. Hanna demands to know where he was, but he promises he’ll tell her after one dance.

The moms question Rhys, who is looking for Ken to talk about the Carissimi group funds. You know, just casually breaking and entering to talk about business at night. Like you do. He leaves, and Ella is all, “That must have been Charles, right?”

Ali still can’t find Charles, and is now just yelling his name at passing waiters hoping to find him. BTW, what kind of prom has waiters? In masks? My prom had a sad punch bowl monitored by a chain-smoking geometry teacher.

Aria tells Ezra she doesn’t want him coming to LA with her, but Ezra tells her it’s only a layover on his way to Thailand to do Habitat for Humanity. They agree it’s a great idea for them both to move on.

Spencer dances with Toby and complains about all the time she wasted writing her commencement speech. She wrote about loving unconditionally and selflessness and inspiration…and apparently she’s talking about Toby. They kiss, and while they’re kissing Ali scurries off into the football field-sized fake forest.
