Pretty Little Liars Burning Question: Can Ezria Survive?

Tonight on Pretty Little Liars, Aria (Lucy Hale) learns the truth about Ezra (Ian Harding). After everything they’ve been through and all of the love they have for another, will their relationship be able to survive this epic betrayal? We speculate below.

Yes, if Ezra has a good explanation.

We’re still not sold on the whole Ezra is “A” thing. We think there’s an asterisk in there somewhere, at least, we really hope so. Otherwise, we’re never going to be able to re-watch PLL without cringing during romantic Ezria scenes. If Ezra has a good explanation he’s an FBI agent, Ali has his baby held hostage, he’s been Pavlovian-trained by the government to stalk on command then we think there’s a good chance Ezria will survive. If not because of the immense affection these two sillies obviously have for one another, then for the fact that neither would ever find someone else who could understand the insanity that is the “A” game.

No, Ezra lied to Aria for too long.

Ezra lied to and manipulated Aria. For a long time. While they were in an intimate relationship. That’s a lot to come back from, even if Ezra has a logical explanation for his behavior. We totally wouldn’t blame Aria for turning and running in the opposite direction. These two love one another, but sometimes, love isn’t enough. You need trust, too. Without it, these two will never survive. And would you be able to trust Ezra after finding a secret cabin basement lair with giant pictures of your allegedly dead friend? We’re not sure we could.

Who cares, Nick Roux is coming on the show!

OK, fine. We care. but have you seen the photos of Aria cuddled up with the adorable Nick Roux (or, more accurately, whomever character he will be playing)? Maybe it’s the picturesque setting, but we haven’t seen Aria so seemingly carefree and full of light like that in a long time. If Ezria needs to be over, Aria could do a heck of a lot worse on her choice of rebound.

Do you think Ezria is over for good? Sound off in the comments below!
