Poor Aria Montgomery. Not only is she hounded day and night by crazy A and not only does she have to risk catching her mom mid-smooch upon entering class, but it also seems like she can’t catch a break when it comes to her on-again off-again romance with Ezra Fitz. It seemed like the two had finally reached a solid point in their relationship — what, with Ella giving her blessing and Aria meeting Ezra’s mom Dianne and brother Wesley. However, per usual, it seems like the sparks between the two lovebirds is going to take a turn for the worse when Pretty Little Liars Season 3 returns. Here’s what Lucy Hale herself recently revealed to E! Online:
Noelle: Dying for some PLL scoop, preferably of the Ezria variety!
E! Online: Lucy Hale, why don’t you take this one? “What’s so interesting about Aria and Ezra’s relationship is that Ezra up to this point has been flawless, kind of like the perfect boyfriend,” she told us at the Nylon party. “And I think it’s so interesting that now Ezra has this secret and it’s getting deeper. And once we dig in this [season], it gets more intense. Ezra will be gone for a little bit and people are going to be so angry. They’re going to be so mad.”
Hmm. What does Lucy mean when she says that Ezra has a secret? The only secret we know involving Ezra is that he fathered a child (Malcolm) with Maggie but doesn’t know anything about it. Aria, on the other hand, knows all about Malcolm and Mags — in fact, she met them both upon going undercover in a first grade classroom yet failed to tell Ez about her little misadventure. Nevertheless, we have been suspicious of Ezra’s recent cash flow — especially since Jason DiLaurentis wrote out a hefty check to a mystery character on the show.
Prediction time! What do you think Ezra is hiding from Aria? And do you Aria knowing about Malcolm and not telling Ezra will put a damper on their romance? Post your theories in the comments!
