On Pretty Little Liars Season 4, Episode 16 ("Close Encounters"), we saw Ezra get more than a little angry at a blonde woman in a car. He later claimed to Aria that the woman was Maggie's lawyer, and he's attempting to get access to see Malcolm. Could this story be true?
When we first heard Ezra's explanation for his behavior we scoffed. It seemed like an obvious lie to cover up some shady, potentially "A" related wrongdoing. But in a sneak peek for tomorrow's Season 4, Episode 17 (“Bite Your Tongue”), Ezra actually does see Maggie, who is back in town to finish up moving. More importantly, he gets upset when he learns she has left Malcolm in Seattle, and blurts out, "So, what are you saying, Maggie? That I’m not going to have a connection to Malcolm unless it’s through an attorney?"
Suddenly, Ezra's story seems to have some validity to it. So, what's going on here? Hopefully we'll learn more on Tuesday, but until then, here are some theories about whether or not Ezra was telling the truth.
Yes — that was Maggie's lawyer. The Pretty Little Liars writers are known for throwing out red herrings. Maybe Ezra really was meeting with Maggie's lawyer, and the rage we saw was just frustration at a tough situation, not something darker.
It was a lie, but based in truth. The best lies have some truth to them. It's very possible (we'd say even likely) that the woman in the car wasn't the lawyer — but that Ezra is using a lawyer to try to get to Malcolm. After all, the best lies are based in truth, so if he really is in a legal battle with Maggie, that would be an obvious cover for his other, less savory, activities, too.
It's all a lie. On the other hand, we don't see that much in this sneak peek. For all we know, this might be the first time Ezra has mentioned a lawyer. Aria enters the room right as he's saying that line, so it's possible he brought it up just so that she'd overhear it, making his lie seem more plausible.
