'Pretty Little Liars' recap: 'What Becomes of the Broken-Hearted'

Rash decisions are made when dealing with a wounded heart, in "What Becomes of the Broken-Hearted?," an all new episode of ABC Family's hit original series "Pretty Little Liars," airing Tuesday, February 12th (8:00 - 9:00 PM ET/PT). (Credit: ABC FAMILY )

Spencer, Spencer, Spencer, how I love the crazy new you. Ms. Hastings has hopped on to the loony locomotive and it hasn't just left the station, it's barreling down the tracks wildly out of control.

While the Liars are all concerned about Spencer's fast-paced unravelling, I happen to think this is the first normal response to all the things that they've been through. Her attack on Mona was absolutely priceless. The only thing that was missing was a referee and a cheesy theme song.

Bravo, crazy lady, bravo.

Hanna's overly pushy, well-intentioned drive to get Caleb reunited with his father is adorable to me. Seeing that nurturing side of her is nice, and it's even nicer to see Caleb recognizing and appreciating it. They really are my favorite couple, hands down.

What is worrisome is the fact that Caleb's Daddy dearest somehow has the double-dice $5-dollar bill that Hanna placed in the collection. Is he already stealing from the church?

I'm sure the plot twists with Caleb and his father are only just beginning; definitely something to keep in the back of our minds.

There's something off about Jason and CeCe; she was definitely not getting Aria and Wes dinner, but what was she doing? Possibly booby-trapping Jason's elevator? Which, speaking of, how is it that it's always Emily stuck in these uber traumatizing situations?

Obviously CeCe has more to hide where Wilden is concerned than we may have thought, which would explain her being on hand to make sure the picture of her Ali and Wilden got swiped. I was never much of a fan of hers anyway.

Another thought on this: why did Jason up and leave the hospital room? Possibly it occurred to him that there, he'd just be a sitting duck with someone clearly out to get him.

All things aside it looks like the A-team is taking the Liars fates into the hands of chance and drinking games. I hate to think what happens when one of the girls' bottles run out...

Looking forward, I am happy to admit (hate me for this if you must) that I actually like the idea of Aria and Wes. No, strike that, I LOVE it. Yup, I said it, deal with it.

As I said last week, it's just a waiting game now to see how Ezra reacts when he comes back into the picture, but as always, only time will tell.
