|Plot:Â The girls examine the video « A » left for them that illuminates what looks to be the final moments of Alisonâ€™s life near the Kissing Rock the night she disappeared. Right after Ian’s cameo on the video, he surprises them in person, as he tries to grab a late-night snack from the Hastings’ kitchen. The girls all freak out while Ian makes small talk, acting nonchalant, so there’s no indication whether he saw his face on the computer screen or not. After he leaves, they decide they need to hand the video over to the police. At school, the girls are decorating for the school’s upcoming dance-a-thon, but take a break to discuss whether they should turn the video into the police. They question « A’s » motives, but Emily doesn’t care; as far as she is concerned, she doesn’t want Toby to go to jail, and this video could prevent that. Aria agrees with Emily and offers to drive Spencer to the police station during their lunch break. Hanna can’t get a job. Later, Hanna tries to get a job to alleviate the Marins’ financial strife. She asks Sean if she can work for his mother as a dental assistant again, but Sean says no, because last time she threatened a kid with a drill bit for aiming his spit at her. Sean is suspicious of why she needs money and can’t get it from her mother, so she makes up an excuse about wanting to save up for some expensive earrings. She tries to get a job with a local store clark, who is also a family friend, and finds out just how strapped their situation is when the woman lets her know that her mother owes their store money. Hanna offers to pay off the debt, but the woman says that Hanna alone couldn’t pay off the debt, « there are not enough days in the week. » Just then, « A » sends Hanna a text offering her money in exchange for a « job » – no doubt shady dealings.
