We haven’t had nearly enough opportunities to witness jealous Ezra (Ian Harding), but with Aria (Lucy Hale) about town kissing martial arts instructors, it’s only a matter of time before we see a green-eyed Mr. Fitz, and we can’t wait! Perhaps it will come in sceneage between Ezra and Aria’s latest oh-so-kissable crush, Jake (Ryan Guzman) How did Pretty Little Liars showrunner Marlene King describe upcoming scenes between Ezra and Jake?

Marlene tweeted yesterday that scenes between Ian and Ryan were “intense.” That one-word descriptor pretty much made our day because a) it appears to mean we will be getting multiple scenes between the men in Aria’s life and b) it implies Ezra is not as cool as he’d like everyone to think about Aria’s newfound romantic freedom. We mean, we kind of assumed on that second point, but it doesn’t hurt to get a little reminder that Ezria love is still alive and strong (if a bit quashed for a season or so).
We think Ezra and Jake have plenty of reasons to be “intense” in their interactions with one another. Aria obviously still have feelings for Mr. Fitz, but that doesn’t mean she won’t be developing real feelings for her hottie martial arts instructor either. We’re not sure in what context Ryan will be shedding his shirt later this season, but it sounds like Jake is going to be in Aria’s life for a while.
What do you think Ezra will think of Jake (and vice versa)? Are you anticipating their scenes together as much as we are? Let us know in the comments below!
