Overview[edit]

The second season continues from the season finale of the previous season, in which Ian Thomas (Ryan Merriman), Spencer's brother-in-law, is presumed to have been killed in an incident at the top of a bell tower but is also accused of murdering Alison. Following the incident, the girls are forced to keep their friendship a secret and to attend therapy sessions, making them feel more alone than ever. The girls found themselves unable to open up to their therapist, Dr. Sullivan, about 'A'. Spencer begins suspecting that Ian is alive when Melissa receives messages from her phone and lies about her whereabouts. When they follow Melissa, they discover Ian's dead body, along with a suicide note, admitting that he killed Alison, however the girls later discover that Ian's suicide note was A-orchestrated and that it wasn't Ian who killed Alison. They also discover that Garrett can not be trusted after finding out his connection to Jenna. Eventually the girls confess to Dr. Sullivan about 'A'. Just when Dr. Sullivan was able to identify who 'A' was, she disappears. Later 'A' reveals that she has Dr. Sullivan and made the girls think she was in danger, however this is revealed to be a trap, as the girls were arrested for tampering with the weapon used to kill Alison.

The second half deals with the girls being more determined to find out who 'A' is. They set up a plan to trick 'A'; the plan had moderate success as the girls were able to steal A's phone. The girls (except Hanna) enlists Caleb's help on hacking to A's phone; however, A tries to shut down the phone, but before A shuts the phone, they were able to discover some clues. Their investigation later leads them to Lost Woods resort, locating A's lair in one of the rooms. Meanwhile, Garrett is arrested for Alison's murder after Jenna hands the ripped page 5 of Alison's autopsy report to the police. After finding more clues, Spencer discovers that 'A' may be her sister, Melissa, but when she and Mona head to A's lair, she finds clues that lead to the identity of 'A': Mona. Mona is admitted to Radley, and Dr. Sullivan returns after revealing it was Mona who threatened her. Later Maya is found dead near Emily's house, devastating Emily.
