“Pretty Little Liars” (PLL) Season 5 Episode 3 “Surfing the Aftershocks” aired on Tuesday, June 24, 2014, at 8:00 p.m. on ABC Family. Who wore it better, Jessica DiLaurentis or Ali? Read on to learn more about this episode.

Previously on “Pretty Little Liars” (“Surfing the Aftershock” Season 5 Episode 3), Mrs. DiLaurentis (Andrea Parker) was found dead. Speculations arose on who killed her. Meanwhile, Hanna (Ashley Benson) accompanied Ali (Sasha Pieterse) in the funeral home to get the guest book. Hanna was mistakenly thought of as Ali by the funeral director. Hanna transformed a lot since Ali went missing. She talked to Mona (Janel Parrish) and told her that she did not help her. Mona changed Hanna into becoming like Ali. Perhaps Ali 2.0? Why?

Mona informed Aria (Lucy Hale) that Ezra (Ian Harding) was back in town. She even went to see Ezra to make sure that his lips were sealed regarding Ali’s fake kidnapping story. On the other hand, Aria told Ezra that she killed Shana (Aeriel Miranda).

Melissa (Torrey DeVitto) warned Spencer (Troian Bellisario) to stay away from the DiLaurentis family, including Ali. Again, why? (“Why” was the overused question in this episode. Don’t you think so?) Jason (Drew Van Acker), on the other hand, warned Spencer that Mr. Hastings (Nolan North) could not be trusted after she showed him the e-mail that Mrs. DiLaurentis was supposed to send but never had the chance. Does Jason know something?

Furthermore, there was a newcomer. She was no other than Sydney Driscoll. She was more like Emily’s stalker in this episode. Sydney seemed to be Emily’s fan and admired her trophies. In fact, she even asked Emily to watch her while she swims.

During Mrs. DiLaurentis’ funeral, Ali was wearing the same dress that her mother wore at her funeral. Talk about a creepy coincidence. Mr. DiLaurentis obviously did not like it. Hey, can you blame the man?
