The Wrath of Kahn
Emily goes up for a position as the Rosewood High swim coach, only to learn that her ex-girlfriend Paige is also up for the job. Hanna is visited by Mrs. Grunwald after she has a vision that the PLLs are in danger. The girls track down the doctor who delivered Mary ’s baby in order to get answers. Ali decides to go back to work to help bring some normalcy to her life again.
- This episode marks Paige's and Mrs. Grunwald's first appearance since "Through a Glass, Darkly" and Mr. Hackett's first appearance since "Surfing the Aftershocks".
- This episode reveals that Noel Kahn was the one who pushed the girl at the frat party years ago.
- Interestingly, one of the student files that Alli flips past belongs to a Lisa Cochran. Obviously this is not the same doctor that Spencer spoke to, but the irony is apparent.
