Pretty Little Liars” Season 5 Episode 10 “A Dark Ali” aired on Tuesday, Aug. 12, 2014, at 8:00 p.m. on ABC Family. Ali identified Cyrus. The girls were furious and were thinking of going to Tanner to reveal everything. Read on to learn more about this episode.

Previously on “Pretty Little Liars” (“A Dark Ali”), Ali (Sasha Pieterse) was being summoned by the police to identify Cyrus (Jake Weary). However, once she did that, she would be sending an innocent person behind bars. We all know that Ali was not kidnapped. Ali was thinking that if he identified Cyrus, he will lead them to “A,” as they believed that “A” was behind this. Emily (Shay Mitchell) was tasked to convince Ali not to identify Cyrus because she might fall into “A’s” trap.

Spencer (Troian Bellisario) hid Ali’s photos and recording in her room. But when she got there to retrieve it, it was all gone. Then she received a call with the recording playing on the background. She also received a message from “A,” telling her “Checkmate.”

Aria (Lucy Hale) consoled Ella (Holly Marie Combs) and volunteered to make the calls to cancel the wedding reservations. After which, she went at Spencer’s to watch a video footage at the barn. Melissa (Torrey DeVitto) was revealed talking to someone dressed in black, handling the recorder. Melissa was not ready yet to speak about what she knows. But she asked Spencer to come with her and leave Rosewood. By the end of the episode, Melissa was doing a video recording, revealing to Spencer everything.

Hanna (Ashley Benson), while auditioning for the choir, saw Mona (Janel Parrish) passed out. When she handed her purse, she saw Cyrus’ mug shot. In the police station, Mona revealed that she was as interested as finding who was behind the Cyrus ploy.

Tanner (Roma Maffia) brought Ali into the basement where she was supposedly kept. Lo and behold! She identified the place. Hanna then SOS-ed the girls at what Ali did. When Ali got home, Emily was already there to scold her about her actions. She tried to convince Emily that she has a plan, but Emily was so done with her.

The girls gathered together and decided to make a stand — they were going to Tanner and revealed Ali’s lies. Moreover, Cyrus met up with Ali in the woods. She handed him a plane ticket, telling him that it was his chance to live a normal life. Then Cyrus left.
