|Plot:Â Aria, Spencer, Emily and Hanna begin to prepare for Alisonâ€™s memorial. The memorial sparks memories of a summer day that the girls had spent lounging by the shore of the lake. Ironically, the girls had spoken about immortality and the fantasy of living in this moment forever. Alison had said that one could attain that only by dying young and leaving behind a beautiful corpse. Getting into it, Alison had romanticized how fabulous it would be to die in a mysterious way. At home, the Marins’ financial woes grow deeper, evidenced by one of Hannaâ€™s credit cards being declined. Ashley lets Hanna know that adjustments need to be made until their situation improves. Hanna steps up and decides to help out in a rather unorthodox and un-Hanna way: she agrees to put up a lot of her old clothes and handbags up for auction online, at the suggestion of her new ally Lucas. Back in real time, they must contend with Alisonâ€™s older brother Jason arriving in Rosewood a changed man â€“ the formerly gawky and Gothic outsider is now as polished as a preppy politician, and heâ€™s got plenty of plans for the memorial of his own sister. Jason surprises the girls with news that Jenna has asked to speak at Alisonâ€™s memorial, and heâ€™s agreed to let her much to their chagrin. At school, Aria flashes back to her last conversation with Ezra before he disappeared and tears down an outdated Homecoming poster. Meanwhile Hanna and Sean have made up, though Sean is still wary of her hanging out with Lucas, even if it is for yearbook. Hanna lets Aria know that Sean’s friend, Noel, wants to ask her out and tries to convince her to double date after school. Things progress with Maya and Emily as well, as Emily musters the courage to ask Maya out on a date for dinner and a movie. More good news for Emily is that her father’s unit in Afghanistan is returning to the United States, meaning that Wayne is coming home.
