Spencer came up with a plan for the Liars to be lured into A's hands, this plan was approved by Mona, stating the plan was liked. Spencer gave invites to the Liars telling them it was a party for Spencer getting out of Radley. The Liars accepted the invitation.

Spencer, Toby, and Mona are waiting at the Lodge prior to the girl's arrival. Mona receives a call from Red Coat, saying the girls are at the lodge and it's safe for her to land.

Season 3Edit

A DAngerous GAme

After Spencer Hastings was released from Radley Sanitarium, she invites her friends to a party at Thornhill Lodge. It is actually where Red Coat wants to meet the girls, but at the point, the girls do not know Spencer is working for the "A-Team."

Spencer, Toby Cavanaugh, and Mona Vanderwaal wait at the Lodge for Hanna, Emily, and Aria to arrive. When Mona receives a call from Red Coat, she informs her the girls are there and it's safe to land.

Toby and Spencer leave the lodge to head towards the landing strip. When they split up, Spencer follows the person who got off the plane and Toby goes to investigate a noise. Toby starts following Jenna, but before he can see her face, he is knocked out from behind. A lighter with the letters NW is dropped next to him. Spencer watches Red Coat get off the plane, and follows her at a distance. Spencer sees a glimpse of her face and gasps, "Ali?"

Meanwhile, Hanna, Emily, and Aria surprise and corner Mona. While they try to get answers out of her, someone outside sets fire to the Lodge. The girls start to panic, running from room to room, trying to escape, but the doors and windows have been locked. Next thing they know, they are being dragged out of the burning building by their dead friend Alison DiLaurentis, who arrived on the airplane wearing Vivian Darkbloom's signature red coat. Hanna sees her face, Mona says she saw her face, and Spencer also thinks she saw Alison.

Season 4Edit

'A' is for A-l-i-v-e

Jenna talks to Emily, and Emily notices a burn on her wrist, meaning she obviously was at the fire. She seems in fear of her life, and says in case anything happens to her, to tell Toby she never meant to hurt him. This means Jenna may have been the one who either knocked Toby out, or was the unseen woman he was following. The Black Widow is seen at the end wearing a burnt "Alison" Mask, meaning she also has a connection to that night.

Face Time

Melissa claims that Wilden set fire to the Lodge, and that she sent Jenna and Shana there to find out if the girls were there to meet Alison. Melissa believes Alison could possibly be alive.

Now You See Me, Now You Don't

It's revealed there are two Red Coats. One is CeCe Drake who wears the Ali mask. There is a "good" Red Coat who is obviously Alison. A appears to be trying to track her, and has a picture of a hooded Red Coat taped to their lair. Alison is revealed to be alive in the same episode, meaning she pulled Hanna from the fire that night.
