** Both "The Lady Killer" and "Taking This One To The Grave" begin in the aftermath of a crime; in the former Hanna is in tears as she and the others see someone taken in an ambulance, in the latter all the Liars (except Spencer) are outside a house that's a crime scene and receive a message from A saying "It's all your fault." [[spoiler: The patient is Caleb, who took a bullet rescuing Emily from Nate. In the latter case the "it" is Mona's savage murder in her own home; Spencer isn't on the scene because she was arrested for killing Bethany Young.]]

* HowWeGotHere: "Unbridled" begins with Spencer heading through a forest at night in a wedding dress; she falls over, gets up and suddenly stops as a sharp sound is heard, before we go back 48 hours. [[spoiler: Spencer and the other three are taking part in a fashion show and modelling wedding dresses - she heads out to follow someone before it's her turn to take the catwalk, and she catches her veil in a beartrap. But it doesn't mean she doesn't wind up suffering...]]

As they stand outside afterwards, they're in the exact same location and positions that they were when they got the first group message from "A."]]

** There's a ShoutOut in Season 3: Emily takes a job at the RearWindow Brewery. Also, in "How the A Stole Christmas," the way in which Toby keeps a look out for Hanna and Spencer is a homage to Rear Window.

** Also played straight; most of the men on the show are plenty attractive enough to keep up with the women (which is to be expected, this being made by [[Series/GossipGirl Alloy]] [[TheLyingGame Entertainment]] and all).

* {{Determinator}}: Spencer. Despite so many of her theories about Alison's killer or A's identity turning out to be wrong she keeps on relentlessly pursuing every lead. Jenna once said that Spencer reminded her of a hungry terrier. * DistressedDamsel: As it's in the horror genre, the show frequently puts its heroines in dangerous situations. However,as the show progresses, the girls learn to take active roles in dangerous situations. For example, in the third season alone, Aria struggles to free herself when [[spoiler:locked in a box with a corpse]] and partly succeeds. When Emily finds herself stranded in the woods with a flat tire, she chases the mysterious hooded figure responsible, rather than running from it. When Aria finds herself drugged and locked in her room, she breaks a hand mirror and wraps one of the shards in cloth to make a shiv. When Emily and Hanna are locked in the Kahn cabin, Emily takes initiative and breaks the window, allowing them to escape.
