Lucy Hale: Aria Still Loves Ezra — Plus, Major Summer Finale Clues!

Aria (Lucy Hale) stepped back into Ezra’s (Ian Harding) life in last night’s episode of Pretty Little Liars Season 4, Episode 11: “Bring Down the Hoe, but is she planning to stay? Lucy talked to TV Guide about Aria’s choice to let Ezra back in, and what’s in store for her character in the epic summer finale.

"Ezra is dealing with a lot and he starts to reach out to her for help with what he's going through," Lucy said. "When Ezra reaches out she's like, 'Oh s—t, I'm still in love with you.'"

Yay! Lucy didn’t go into the details of what Ezria’s relationship might look like moving forward, but she did address the fact that a major obstacle to the Ezria relationship has been removed: “Now [Maggie], who ruined her relationship, might be leaving, so she sees the light at the end of the tunnel."

What about poor Jake? Well, we wouldn’t count him out, given that we know he’s sticking around well into the winter season, but we’re not sure if we’d place any money on Jake sticking around for the long haul, either. Luce addressed the dilemma Aria has in having to choose between Ezra and Jake: "For the first time, [Aria] likes a guy other than Ezra and wants to make it work," Lucy said. "But I think Aria always senses it's just not the same. There's always that one person.” Aw. She must know Ezria is endgame.

But Aria has bigger things to worry about than her love life! Stakes are high in next week’s summer finale (Season 4, Episode 12: “Now You See Me, Now You Don’t”), which will see the Liars traveling to Ravenswood to follow an “A” clue. While there, they catch a magic show — but everything doesn’t go according to plan: “Aria may go missing [after] she's lured into this magic trick.” Yikes!

While Aria is pulling a disappearing act in the ep, it sounds like Red Coat will be pulling a re-appearing one. Lucy said, "We reveal who Red Coat is.” This has us a bit confused, as Janel Parrish (Mona) said Red Coat would be revealed in the Halloween special. Eh. We suppose we aren’t picky as long as we get a real answer sooner rather than later.

What do you think the next step for Ezria? Were you surprised to hear that Aria still loves Ezra? And what do you think will go down in Ravenswood in the summer finale? Sound off in the comments below!
