But all of this running around Toby has been doing with Spencer has completely distracted him from his newly resurrected friendship with Emily. Toby tells Emily that he found out it was Jenna who turned him in (to keep him close), and he apologizes for not believing in her. They have a breakfast date but Toby blows it off for some quality mystery-solving time with Spencer. Emily shows up on his porch the next morning to find Jenna playing the flute. Without hesitation, the instigator makes a few comments and gets Emily riled up just enough to be slightly jealous. That girl definitely knows how to play her cards.
As each of the girls carefully comb over the details of that night, reflecting back on their interactions with Ian, Alison’s temporary disappearance and the odd coincidence that Ian was standing there at the top of the stairs when the girl fell, each of them contemplates the 1 million what ifs of that night. But only Spencer wonders what if Alison was stalking Ian? What if Alison wasn’t nearly as innocent as they thought?

But during all the drama, there’s one thing that the girls keep coming back to: a frat party Alison helped them crash years ago in which a drunk girl innocently tumbled down a flight of stairs just before being shipped off in an ambulance. Everything about that party seems completely normal, minus the tragic accident, until the girls start to dig deeper. Was it an accident? Emily remembers seeing Ian at the top of the stairs moments after the girl fell. Did he push her? And just as she was carted off to the hospital Alison checks in with her girlfriends and asks what’s up with all the commotion? “You missed it?” they asked. Where was she, anyway?
And just as we think they’ve bagged the evidence to get Toby in the clear and Ian convicted, the girls receive a mass text from A that reads “Rat me out, your blood’s next.”
But of course that’s not all! The girls stumble upon a trophy from a golf tournament in Hilton Head with blood on it. Suspecting it could have been an accessory in Alison’s murder, the girls take it straight to the cops. Their theory is that it’s Ian’s trophy and Alison’s blood, since they suspect the two secretly vacationed together before Alison’s death. Of course, this isn’t the case. The police show up at school to bring in the girls for questioning. One of them tells the girls they should have done some research because the blood on the trophy is hardly human (in fact, it’s that of a rat), never mind Alison’s. What’s worse is the trophy is a phony: The date on it is false, there was no golf tournament at the club that weekend.
Meanwhile, Spencer and Toby are still playing detective with Jenna’s Braille “214.” But Spencer decides they don’t have all the time in the world to sit and ponder these obscure numbers, so she steals Jenna’s phone for Caleb to crack. Unfortunately Caleb isn’t familiar with phones for the blind and can’t seem to hack it before Spencer’s one-hour deadline. They still think Ian is involved, and suspicions only grow when the girls see him speaking with Jenna at school. Since when does she know him?
Was I the only one who thought we were going to go an entire episode without a creepy text message from A? Of course, it wasn’t to be, as the girls’ phones simultaneously blew up while on their way to the police station but, boy, it was a close one. Let’s look back at how the girls ended up in the back of a police cruiser.
Things continue to be less than easy breezy in Ezria land. The couple have their monthly quarrel about the future of their relationship after Aria learns that beers with Byron turned into her dad helping to get her boyfriend a job at the local college. Despite the fact that Aria previously wished for Ezra to not be her high school English teacher and instead just her boyfriend, she’s upset that he’s considering leaving Rosewood High. He promises a move would be more about allowing more time for his writing career but can’t seem to get over the fact that Aria could soon be leaving for college (in a year and a half) anyway. The couple duke it out in a couple of passive aggressive scenes but ultimately end up making up before breaking up.

Next, Hanna walks into the bathroom to grab something while Caleb is showering. Ashley enters as well, looking for her phone, which she has put in the charger there, prompting Hanna to jump in the shower fully clothed so that her mother won’t realize it is Caleb showering, not Hanna. She holds her hand over his mouth so he won’t make noise and makes an awkward situation even worse when he catches her sneaking a peek when he turns around.
Eerily, the last scene is presumably one of a room in A’s house. There are four cages, each containing a white rat, animal feed, and a wheel. Each cage has one name of each of the girls taped to it. The cage labeled “Spencer,” however, is missing the rat.

Frustrated, Mr. Fitz ends practice for the day, leaving Aria, Spencer, Hanna and Emily alone in the rehearsal room. While packing her costume away in the prop box, Spencer stumbles across a trophy with Ian Thomas' name on it. Spencer twirls it in her fingers, seeing dried blood at the base of the trophy. The trophy is from a tournament in Hilton Head which took place the weekend Ali disappeared. Spencer posits that it is the murder weapon Ian used to kill Alison and decides to hand it over to the police, along with the other Liars. Aria and Ezra talking As they leave the police station, the girls make plans to sleep at Emily's place, except Hanna who needs to go home to make sure Caleb doesn't accidentally scare her mom. Spencer is especially keen on this plan, as it will mean that she can avoid sleeping in the same residence as Ian for one night. Aria asks to make a stop on the way home. Before getting in the car, Spencer points out to Emily that they should alert Toby to what happened, but Emily shakes her head and lets Spencer know that she thinks she should be the one talking to him. Then, Aria surprises Ezra in his apartment before school. There, Aria convinces Ezra that going for drinks with her father is a good idea, as it will allow him to appreciate the man in her life, even if he doesn't know the extent of it. She proposes the idea of being his stage manager, and he gives in to her request. At the Marin household, Ashley grows increasingly suspicious of their lack of food, as Hanna has been secretly housing foster kid Caleb in their basement. Hanna admits to having Caleb over a couple of times for dinner, but even that bothers Ashley, as she doesn't completely trust Caleb. (Caleb overhears Ashley's words about him.) Awkward working relationship The Badass Seed (censored to The Bad Seed) is the eighteenth episode in Season 1. This episode aired on February 21st of 2011.
