Christmas has come early, Pretty Little Liars fans! Ironically, with more details about the much-talked-about PLL Christmas special. It seems that it’s still on the docket for Season 5, and that it may include one fan favorite — Ezra (Ian Harding) — in only a pair of Santa boxers.
Pretty Little Liars executive producer Marlene King confirmed that there will be a Christmas special instead of a Halloween special in Season 5: “I’m so excited,” she told TV Line. “I’ve been trying to make a Christmas episode for four years, so I’m thrilled.” So are we, Marlene. So are we. And we’re even more thrilled when we hear of the one detail Marlene and Co. seem set on.
“I’m trying to find a way to get Ezra Fitz into Santa boxers. Ian said he’d actually wear them if I could make it happen,” Marlene teased. Um, yes please. As we’ve mentioned before, Ezra’s road to redemption is going to be a long one — seeing him shirtless in holiday-themed underwear couldn’t hurt the situation. You need to play to your strengths, amirite?
This tease also makes us happy because it proves that not only will Ezra survive the gunshot wound he sustained in the Season 4 finale, but he will still be around come the holiday season. Sure, we knew he survived and we assumed he would be on Pretty Little Liars to stay, but there’s nothing like the promise of Santa boxers to put the mind at ease.
Are you as excited about the Christmas special as Marlene is? Are you on board the Ezra-in-Santa-boxers bandwagon? Sound off in the comments below!
