On the heels of finding Ian's body and a suicide note in which he admits to killing Alison, the girls try to get closure. But "A" spurs Emily to take a closer look at the note, and Emily realizes that "A" formed the note through the texts that "A" sent the girls, making Ian's confession false. She tells Emily, Spencer and Aria the news and they are shocked.
Spencer tells her parents that they must have an official funeral for Ian so Melissa can find closure with Ian's death. The Little Liars attend to support the Hastings family. At the funeral, Aria gets disappointed when she and Ezra are still unable to go public with their relationship.
Meanwhile, Jason has a vulnerable moment with Aria at the funeral in which he admits that he blacked out the night that Ali disappeared and when he woke up found a note in his pocket saying, "I know what you did." He believed that he may have accidentally killed Ali but Ian's alleged confession proves that he didn't.
Later, "A" sends the girls to the cemetery and projects the video of Ali with Ian up onto the Mausoleum wall. But this time, the video reveals more! The girls see that Ali got up and walked away from the confrontation that they thought was Ian killing Ali.
