the perfect storm pretty little liars 'Pretty Little Liars' episode 9 sneak peek: 'The Perfect Storm' lets Aria, Noel have a moment“Pretty Little Liars” only has two episodes left before it goes on its mid-season hiatus. The penultimate episode is “The Perfect Storm,” where the classic TV convention of a storm trapping the characters in various situations leads to big drama.

For Aria (Lucy Hale), it means being trapped with her new hottie Noel (Brant Daugherty). So what better way to pass the time than to sing? Hale, a finalist on “American Juniors” in 2003 (she’s still in touch with her co-stars), flexes her golden pipes on Eva Cassidy’s “Who Knows Where the Time Goes” while Daugherty shows off his guitar skills.

Just as they are about to kiss, who is walking in? Is it Mr. Ezra Fitz (Ian Harding), who has been MIA since Homecoming? We certainly hope so.

Meanwhile, Officer Wilden (Bryce Johnson) is still giving the girls a hard look as he investigates Ali’s murder. What is Emily lying about? Is it her date with Maya or something else?

And did you catch the text from “A”? “Hey Em — you weren’t the only one with Great Expectations. Check it out. xoxo — A.” So last week A says something to Spencer about Tom Sawyer and this week it’s “Great Expectations.” What do you think it means?

“The Perfect Storm” airs Tuesday, Aug. 3 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC Family.
