We’re not sure how long Aria (Lucy Hale) and Ezra (Ian Harding) will carry on with this whole “not being in love” charade, but it looks like their resolve may be slipping in the upcoming hoedown dance episode (sorry, Jake). Check out this Twitter tease from Pretty Little Liars writer Maya Goldsmith

“Look who is reaching out,” tweeted Maya, along with a pic of Ezra literally reaching out to touch Aria. We knew these two couldn’t stay apart forever! It’s hard to judge how Aria is reacting to Ezra’s advance -- it could be joyful relief that their separation is over or it could be conflicted anger that Ezra is making a move while she is dating someone else. It could go either way.  

You know what makes this tease even more awesome, though? Cowboy hats! Well, technically, Aria’s the only one wearing one, but from what we know about this line-dancing scene, we bet she’s surrounded by at least a dozen extras in similar get-ups. The pic seems to be from the upcoming dance scene we’ve heard so much about, which means Aria’s current BF, Jake (Ryan Guzman), is also in the house. We wonder how he feels about Ezra’s effort to reconnect? Could this have anything to do with the “intense” Jake/Ezra scenes Marlene King was talking about? Should we prepare ourselves for a country and western dance off for Aria’s heart? Because that would be awesome.

What do you think is going on between Ezra and Aria in this scene? And where might Jake be? Let us know your theories in the comments below!
