What this week’s episode of Pretty Little Liars, “Birds of a Feather,” lacked in Ezra and Toby hotness (seriously, where the eff were they?!) made up for in other guy hotness — like the return of Jason and the introduction of Maya’s good-looking cousin, Nate. But with these dudes came plenty of drama, of course. So read on for our recap and you tell us which girl had it the roughest last night!

Oh, and be sure to check out our predictions for every episode of Pretty Little Liars. We so called these…

1. What happened with Aria? Aria’s parents’ divorce is officially happening, and she finds out her dad and Meredith are officially an item. So to make her mom feel better, she signs her up for online dating, Ella finds out via Hanna’s mom, and the mother and daughter duo have a laugh over it. Hey, “HotMama” is kinda a funny dating profile username…

2. What happened with Emily? Now with that whole English test saga behind her, Emily can focus on other things again, like Maya. She gets a special visit from Maya’s cousin, Nate, who comes to Rosewood because he’s studying at Hollis. He comes bearing gifts — a t-shirt of the movie she and Maya saw together on their first date — from Maya’s parents, but when Maya asks for their address so she can send them a thank you note, Nate gets all sketchy and it’s kinda obvious something is up. And things got weirder when he said he wanted to leave Rosewood already because all people talk about there is Maya’s death. Uh, clearly the guy has never heard of a girl named Allison DeLaurentis…

3. What happened with Spencer? Spencer and the rest of the Hastings family get a visit from Jason, who is angry that Veronica is representing Garrett — he killed his sister, ya know?! So when Jason tells Spencer that he thinks it’s because her mom has ulterior motives, Spencer puts her detective hat on and finds out the truth. And here it is: 1) Melissa admits to losing the baby the night after Ian disappeared. The only people who knew the truth was her parents and Garrett. Go figure. 2) Melissa was the one wearing the black swan costume at the masquerade ball, but only because she was forced to. She claims someone left a note with the costume, demanding that she wear it or else the truth would get out about the baby. 3) Spencer’s mom admits to defending Garrett because she is protecting Melissa — she knows Melissa is innocent but is afraid the jury will think otherwise if they find out she was faking her pregnancy, aka is psycho. Got all that?!

Oh, and we should prob also note that Jason left a note (get it?) around Rosewood offering a $50,000 reward for whoever can find remains of Allison’s body. He claims to have gotten over 200 calls with leads, but at the end of the episode, we see him writing out the check to cash and calling someone to meet him in the parking lot in ten mins. Could that have been Wilden, who we later find out has a court order allowing him to visit Mona? Oh dear.

4. What happened with Hanna? Hanna goes about her usual business of visiting Mona at the treatment center, but later finds out that Mona isn’t allowed visitors after she had a freak out after an incident with a male visitor last week. Hanna thinks it was Lucas who caused that, but Caleb admits it was him. Then Hanna gets mad he went behind her back and is getting so involved, so Aria tells her she needs to tell Caleb that the “A” saga hasn’t entirely ended. But just when she is about to tell him, she gets a text from “A” with a pic of police in Montecito — where Caleb’s mom had just gotten into a car accident. Creepy. So instead of letting him in on the secret, Caleb gets mad that she’s pushing him away and keeping him in the dark — so he dumps her. And then she cried a lot and so did we. Wah.

So, who had the worst night? Is Nate hiding something? Is Melissa telling the truth (though we doubt it)? And will Haleb ever rekindle?!
