Get ready to pick your jaws up off the floor, dolls! The first Pretty Little Liars Season 5 promo has been unveiled (courtesy of E! Online) and — Holy Rosewood! — it’s ultra gripping! Not only are we made privy to some dangerous situations, but it also appears as though there’s plenty of deadly drama on the horizon.
As you probably remember all too well, Season 4 ended with a mysterious masked psycho shooting Ezra (Ian Harding) on an NYC rooftop and leaving him for dead. “I know who you are,” Ezra stated right before being blasted with a bullet. So who’s the culprit? Well that’s exactly what the PLL premiere (“Escape from New York“) promises to explore when the beloved ABC Family series returns this summer.
PLL episode 5×01 begins moments after the finale left off, with Ezra being rushed to the hospital after collapsing onto the ground. The harrowing sneak peek teases a new hashtag, #WhoShotEzra, and shows the girls racing against time to figure out this latest mystery. Poor Aria (Lucy Hale), who has been left devastated beyond belief, will be spending lots of time by his bedside. (She even holds his hands for extra comfort!) Unfortunately, things are looking bleak for ol’ Fitzy. “A” is lurking around the hospital, and the end of the promo shows him flat-lining as Aria screams for help.
“Once Ezra tells us who A is, it will all be over,” Emily (Shay Mitchell) calmly tells someone. The scene then flashes to Ezra removing his oxygen mask and trying to whisper something into Aria’s ear. “What is it?” she worryingly asks.
And that’s not all! Viewers also get several glimpses of Alison DiLaurentis (Sasha Pieterse). In one of them, she and Mona Vanderwaal (Janel Parrish) have convened inside a mausoleum — you know, the one in which Ali is supposedly buried — and Mona rips apart a rose. Judging by the way the camera lingers on the name on the epitaph, it appears as though we’ll find out which poor soul has actually been laid to rest there. The other footage shows Ali and her besties being surrounded and attacked by a huge group of people in black hoodies and skeleton masks. Uh oh. It looks like A is assembling an army…and these villains are thicker than thieves.
