Everyone, and we do mean everyone, on Pretty Little Liars has dated numerous people. It was high school after all. Even our favorite couples — that we will ship ’til the end of time — broke up once or twice. A relationship is a lot to handle when you’re also trying to get into college, solve numerous murders, figure out who’s stalking/blackmailing you, and trying not to be killed yourself.
But, despite the men and women who have come and gone, our four favorite girls will always have that one special person that means the world to them. This is the first person that they said ‘I love you’ to, the person they would kill for and… the person they first had sex with. Take a look back at each time one of your four favorite girls lost her virginity on PLL:
Hanna with Caleb, S1E19 (“A Person of Interest”) — Remember Hanna’s ex-boyfriend, Sean? The two were like the perfect, blond(e), all-American couple of Rosewood High. But Hanna kept trying to get in his pants, and Sean, being uber religious, was not having it. There was even that really heartbreaking scene when Hanna tries to seduce him at Noel Kahn’s party, and Sean calls her desperate. So sad! But, in walks Caleb. He was the new, mysterious bad boy in town. He had a troubled past, nowhere to live, and an unexplained skill for computers. Obviously, Hanna had to know more! After getting him on his feet, the two become quite close and, eventually, develop a relationship that we’re still rooting for. Hanna never seemed like the type of girl who could rough it in the woods, but with Caleb, anything is possible! The two share a special night under the stars.
Emily with Maya, S2E18 (“A Kiss Before Lying”) — As much as the public’s either #TeamPaily or #TeamEmison, no one can forget that Emily had a spark with Maya. After all, Emily shared a lot of… firsts with her.
When they initially met, Maya convinced her to smoke weed for the first time. And, even though Emily kissed Alison, Maya is the first girl she kissed that made her want to go public. And, Maya was her first official girlfriend! So, it’s no surprise that the time finally came for Maya to meet Emily’s mom, Pam — who was already struggling with her daughter’s newfound sexuality. Let’s just say that the dinner did not go well. Even though Maya finds a way to make it up to Pam and ask for a second chance, she needs to do that with Emily as well. Maya decorates her bedroom in a sea of lights, making it look as if it’s under water. Emily forgives her, they say ‘I love you,’ then move to the bed… and Emily experiences another first with Maya. #RIP
Aria with Ezra, S2E24 (“If These Dolls Could Talk”) — Aria’s relationship with Ezra is one we love to hate. Their chemistry and passionate is practically tangible — not to mention the whole ‘forbidden love’ thing. We ship them so much that we’re almost willing to ignore the fact that their relationship is wildly inappropriate. Unfortunately, people in Rosewood just can’t turn a blind eye like we can. Aria’s parents are considering sending her to boarding school, and Byron, Aria’s dad, is working behind the scenes to have Ezra fired from Hollis. Although Ezra is willing to let it go and move away, Aria is having absolutely none of it. She threatens to expose her dad’s previous affair with his graduate student, which would destroy his career. Needless to say, she gets her way. She rushes to Ezra’s apartment to tell him the good news and the two celebrate… by breaking in the bed. On the next episode, the girls all convene at Ezra’s apartment while he’s away; while Hanna’s bouncing on the bed, Aria says, “Do you mind? That’s kind of sacred ground.” #Ezria4E
Spencer with Toby, S3E12 (“The Lady Killer”) — At this point in the game, the Liars have fought more bad guys in Rosewood than you’d ever find in a Tarantino flick. But back on Season 3, the girls were going up against ‘The A-Team.’ As if one ‘A’ weren’t bad enough! Not to mention, the girls all have their own personal drama going on. Aria is grappling with the fact that Ezra may be the father of Maggie’s son, Emily is trying to uncover who killed Maya and Hanna is emotionally wrecked because Caleb has been shot. As for Spencer? Well, Toby is back in town after he split to take a job, although really he just needed some space from Spencer. They both apologize and make up…in a BIG way. For the first time, Spencer and Toby tumble in the sheets and say ‘I love you.’ With her relationship back in tact and better than ever, Spencer is blissful. Too bad she doesn’t know that her beloved Toby is a member of ‘The A-Team!’
In worse times, here are eight moments in which one of the PLL girls were hospitalized:
On S1, E11: 'Moments Later'
After receiving yet another text from 'A,' the Liars attend Mona's 'glamping' birthday party in hopes of finally capturing their tormentor. Although they don't succeed, Hanna comes close when she identifies 'A.' She texts the girls to meet her in the parking lot, but by the time they arrive, Hanna was run down by a car! Needless to say, this landed her a trip to the Rosewood Community Hospital.
While heavily medicated, Hanna hallucinates that Alison has visited her bedside. Now we know that Ali was actually there keeping a watchful eye on her BFF.

On S2, E8: 'Save the Date'
Back on Season 2, Emily had a pretty promising swim career ahead of her. So much so, that a scout from Danby University comes to watch her big meet. As if that weren't stressful enough, her dad shows up and surprises her, too! Now, not only is she nervous about impressing her dad and the scout, but she's worried that they'll meet and discover that Emily forged a letter of intent from the Danby scout! Emily cracks under the pressure and is hospitalized with an ulcer.

On S2, E25: 'unmAsked'
The Season 2 finale of PLL is easily one of the most shocking of the series. With an upcoming masquerade ball, 'A' isn't the only one that'll be in disguise. Dressed in gorgeous gowns and exquisite masks, the girls are on the hunt. While Hanna, Emily and Aria discover Black Swan, Spencer pieces together that Mona is 'A.' Unfortunately she figures it out just a moment too late. Mona knocks Spencer unconscious with a flashlight and shoves her into a car. Spencer wakes up to Mona's reckless driving but manages to stop the car. The other girls show up and, before you know it, Spencer and Mona are fighting on the edge of the cliff where Mona takes a tumble. While we're sure she was hospitalized for her injuries, she was committed to Radley Sanitarium for her personality disorder and… murderous tendencies.

On S3, E22: 'When Will the Circle Be Broken?'
After discovering what she thinks is Toby's dead body in the woods, Spencer has a breakdown. She is found wandering by a hiker and is completely catatonic. She can't say who she is or what she was doing in the woods, so she is committed to Radley Sanitarium under the name 'Jane Doe.' After a 72-hour evaluation and discussions with some of the nurses, Spencer discovers that Radley may have hurt people more than help them.

On S6, E2: 'Songs of Innocence'
After spending a month trapped and tortured in 'A''s Dollhouse, the Liars are finally rescued. But surviving such a harrowing experience doesn't happen without incurring a few cuts, bruises and a whopping dose of PTSD. They all spend some much needed quality time in Rosewood Community Hospital.
On S6, E15: 'Do Not Disturb'
In one of the stranger plot lines of Season 6, Emily's beloved father has died and left her money for college. She has not only dropped out of school, but has blown all of the money on who knows what. To right this wrong, she decides to donate her eggs for a handsome fee. The procedure goes smoothly, but when she awakes in the hospital expecting to see Alison, she sees Sara Harvey instead! And even worse, Emily sees Sara placing something in her IV. Emily screams bloody murder and Alison rushes in, insisting that Emily was just hallucinating from the drugs. But, we've been down this road before… We know better.
On S6, E18: 'Burn This'
Now a tech multi-millionaire, Lucas has graciously offered to let Hanna stay in his high-tech loft while he’s out of town. During her stay, she hosts her bridal shower, which totally blows up because no one knows anything about her relationship with Jordan. Speaking of blowing up, 'A' hacks into the loft's system and makes the fireplace erupt just as Aria is inching towards it. She burns her arm pretty badly and is rushed to the hospital. Thank goodness she makes it out with her eyebrows!
On S6, E19: 'Did You Miss Me?'
Despite her questionable romantic history with older men, Alison finds no problem with eloping with her boyfriend, who also happens to be her murdered sister’s therapist. During their honeymoon at a quaint B&B, she takes a tumble down the stairs, landing her in the hospital. Then, while recovering at home, she begins to hallucinate that Wilden and her dead mother are haunting her. Unbeknownst that her precious husband is behind both her fall, and hallucinations, she commits herself to Welby State Psychiatric Hospital (a.k.a. the new Radley).
