The Liars are searching for answers in Ravenswood, when Emily is trapped in a coffin by "A". The girls are trying to find out where she is and see Red Coat running to the Sawmill. They chase her inside, where Emily is locked in a coffin on a Saw board. The girls frantically try and get her out, but can't find a way. Suddenly Red Coat turns off the saw. The girls turn and see her and she runs off, but another Red Coat runs to the scene on the stairs, wearing an Alison mask. Aria chases after the masked one, while Spencer goes after the one who saved Emily. Spencer's Red Coat leads her to a lair, while Aria unmasks hers as CeCe Drake. Spencer shows the girls the lair and says she believes it was Alison who lead her there. As the girls exit the Lair, Mrs. Grunwald stops them and reveals that she pulled Alison out of her grave that night and took her to the hospital where she took off. Emily asks if Grunwald means that Alison is still alive, and she nods.

The girls go to the Ravenswood party in hopes of finding Alison. They see Red Coat running into a mausoleum and follow her inside. After searching for much time with no luck, they return home. Once arriving to Spencer's, they see Red Coat watching them from the woods and chase her into Spencer's backyard, where she reveals herself as Alison. She tells them that she wants to come home, but that it's still not safe. They ask who she's afraid of and she tells Hanna to remember what she told her at the hospital. They hear someone approaching and see a light and Alison gives them a "shhh" before taking off.
