Ezria may be on the outs come Pretty Little Liars Season 4, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t plenty of dirt to dig up on these two and their complicated love lives. What is in store for our favorite literature lovers — together and apart — in the upcoming season? Read on to find out!
Season Premiere Sightings
PLL showrunner Marlene King promised that we would be seeing plenty of Ezria in Season 4, and she wasn’t lying if Season 4, Episode 1: “‘A’ Is For A-L-I-V-E” is anything to go by. Not only will these two be running into one another in the classroom as Mr. Fitz is back at Rosewood High, but also at the local coffee shop. Poor, Aria! Rosewood seems like a terrible town to break up in.
Aria’s Hot New Love Interest
Luckily, Aria has a hot new love interest to mend her broken heart. Maybe you’ve heard talk of the new martial arts instructor in town? He goes by the name of Jake, and he’s apparently already in some danger. No mind, though. He has Aria to keep him safe. She has tons of experience when it comes to evading Rosewoodian danger.
Ezra’s New Love Interest?
There has been speculation around the Interweb that Rumer Willis’ new character, Zoe, will be Ezra’s new love interest. Don’t worry, Ezrians! The rumor (pun!) is unfounded. Zoe, the organizer of an international charity, will be coming to Rosewood, but not to steal Aria’s ex - though, she does seem to have some connection to our Mr. Fitz. We’re going to keep a steady eye on this one.
Ezria’s Stairwell Meet-Up
We do love clandestine stairwell meetups between these two (PLL pilot and Season 3 finale kisses anyone?), and it looks like we may be in store for another one in Season 4, Episode 6: “Under the Gun.” Check out this snapshot from the ep that shows a seated Aria and standing Ezra conversing in the stairwell. Is it just us or does Aria look like she needs some advice? And what is that Ezra is clutching in his hand?
Season 4, Episode 7 Screentime
Well, whatever goes down in that stairwell, it can’t have been too bad considering Ezria will be getting some screentime in the following ep, Season 4, Episode 7: “Crash and Burn, Girl.” No promises of romance from scriptwriter Bryan Holdman, but we’ll take anything we can get! Maybe this has something to do with Aria’s baby bro, Mike Montgomery, who will be poking around in this part of the season.
Season 4 Sex Scene?
Marlene is a total Ezria shipper and, though she hasn’t confirmed that there will be another Ezria sex scene, she did give a tentative “yes” to the question. The affirmation came with a disclaimer: “That's not a promise. Just a wish for now.” But, we have pretty high hopes that it will happen. Fingers crossed that it will come in Season 4!
“Shocking Developments” for Ezra
Though Ezra and Aria will be apart at the beginning of Season 4, that doesn’t mean Mr. Fitz won’t be getting any juicy storylines of his own. Apparently, Ezra is in for some “shocking developments” that will make our “eyebrows...fall off.” That is a pretty bold statement from Bryan Holdman considering the kinds of shenanigans pulled on a regular basis on this show. After three seasons, our eyebrows are not easily caught unawares.
Ezria Can Never Be Replaced
And when the Ezria angst becomes too much for us, we can always revisit Marlene’s aw-worthy tweet that “No one could ever replace Ezria.” Let’s face it: she’s the biggest Ezria shipper of them all, so there’s always hope for these two lovebugs.
