"Pretty Little Liars" is back with a brand new Season 5. In the last season's finale episode, Ezra was shot by "A" and the Liars were on the roof while all this happened. Now, Season 5, Episode 1 "EscApe from New York" picks things up from the finale.
Ezra took the bullet for Aria and the Liars. No matter what he did in the past, Aria and Ezra have been friends for a long time and deep down she knows that she loves him. Aria is not going to let things go without investigating the matter.
Ezra is going to live. However, the bullet injuries are quite severe. What is worse is that, the shooter also follows him to the hospital in order to make sure he is dead. Thankfully, he survives and will have to stay in the hospital for a few days or weeks.
Ali and other Liars try to find out and catch "A."
In the meantime, Detective Holbrook is working hard to find the location of the Liars and inform the Hastings family. Also, Holbrook is going to find out that Mrs. DiLaurentis is missing. Holbrook informs the Hastings family that CeCe has escaped.
In "Pretty Little Liars" Season 5, Episode 1, numerous "A" like people follow the Liars.
