- This article is about the location. For the event, see Burning of the Thornhill Lodge.
The Lodge emerges for the first time in "A DAngerous GAme," when Spencer invites Emily, Hanna and Aria to a party, which turns out to be a set-up and a meeting place with "A." Later in the episode, Hanna, Aria, and Emily sneak up on Mona. Someone locks the building from the outside and sets the lodge on fire, trapping the girls and Mona inside. We see someone in a red coat land her plane on the landing strip. She pulls the liars out of the burning lodge. Hanna looks up and it is Alison DiLaurentis. As they are coming to, Mona runs over and asks if anyone else saw her, exclaiming that it was Alison that saved them from the fire. Hanna and Spencer both confirm that they saw her too.
Toby watches a fireman pull a red coat out of the debris the morning after the fire at the lodge. Spencer and Toby later go back to look for clues. While they where searching, Spencer sees a figure who quickly gets away before they could catch him/her.
Melissa reveals to Spencer that she sent Jenna and Shana over to the lodge in order to find out who the girls were going to meet because they were suspicious that it may have been Alison, and that Wilden showed up and he started the fire.
- The lodge is named after the character Roger O. Thornhill, played by Cary Grant, in the 1959 Alfred Hitchcock film North by Northwest. This goes along with the overall North by Northwest theme of the episode, "A DAngerous GAme."
- As Red Coat, Alison pulled Hanna, Aria, Emily, and Mona out of the fire, so it is apparent that Red Coat did not intend for the fire to be started at the lodge, or for any of the girls to die.
- Melissa says Wilden was the person who set the lodge on fire. Template:PLLWiki
