Bring Down the Hoe is the twelfth episode of Season Four. It aired on August 20th, 2013.


Now that the police found one of Ashley's shoes, courtesy of "A", in Emily's wrecked house, Ashley is looking guilty again. At school Hanna finds an envelope with thousands of dollars in her locker, with a note that says it can help her mom. Later Hanna finds out that it was sent by a guy named Travis, who tells Hanna he knows her mother didn't murder Wilden. He says he saw her at the lake with Wilden after his dad toed Wilden's car from the lake, but heard the gunshots after she drove away. He saw a blonde female run away into the woods. After Hanna encourages him to, he tells the police. Emily remembers Alison told her that she broke up with people's boyfriends for them, and once had a gun pulled on her as a result. Meanwhile CeCe is shown in her apartment, which is plastered with pictures of the girls, including Alison. A red trench coat is seen sitting on her chair. At the school Western-themed hoedown, Emily and Spencer catch a glimpse of Red Coat. They follow her outside and when they get in a tractor they discover red coat is in the haystack in the back. They try to attack her, but strangely all they find is her coat. Toby and Spencer get into a fight after Spencer reveals that she told the girls about Toby's mother. "A" texts him Dr. Palmer's address, and then calls the police just as Toby attempts to break into his car. However, Spencer told Caleb to follow Toby, and Caleb tries to talk sense into Toby before they both narrowly evade the police. Aria visits Ezra's apartment and he talks to her about his issues. Red Coat, now in a black hoodie, is seen eavesdropping on their conversation, and when the person turns around it's CeCe Drake. The final scene shows "A" making dolls of the five liars: Aria, Spencer, Hanna, Emily, and the newest one, Mona. 'A' takes the knitting utensil and stabs the Mona doll.
