Elsewhere, Faran becomes suspicious about Kelly and theorizes that Karen is alive and pretending to be Kelly. Imogen uses an Oujia board to contact her mother but to no avail.

However, they leave Angela behind to get caught. In the present, Faran uses Henry’s help to confirm that Kelly has an injury on her feet, thereby supporting her theory that Karen is still alive and pretending to be Kelly.

Tyler is a surprising target for A, considering what we know about his modus operandi. A is seemingly only targeting those children whose parents are responsible for the deaths of  Angela Waters. Hence, it is likely that Tyler is one of the teens whose parents were involved in the mysterious death of Angela almost 22 years ago. However, how Tyler’s death fits into A’s larger plan remains to be seen.

Who Called Imogen?

The fourth episode sees Imogen snooping around, searching for clues about the connection between the Liars’ mothers and Angela’s death. While she calls a few of her mother’s former classmates, Imogen fails to learn anything important. Moreover, it is evident that most of the people Imogen calls are scared to speak about Angela’s death. Hence, the matter is very perplexing. However, in the fifth episode, Imogen sees a ray of hope after she receives a call from one of her mother’s former classmates.

The person reveals that they knew Angela and Imogen’s mother. Moreover, the person also claims to know Angela’s family. Hence, this mysterious caller will be a crucial connecting link between the Little Liars and Angela’s death. However, the person’s identity remains a closely guarded secret for now. Only time will tell whether this caller will be able to help Imogen and her friends. A could likely target the caller to stop the girls from getting to the truth. Hence, Imogen and her friends will have to be careful while interacting with the caller.
