You can totally tell that Spencer, Hanna, and Emily are just dying to meet Aria’s new boyfriend, Jake (Ryan Guzman), but are trying to give their friend space to figure out what she wants from the post-Ezra relationship. But this phase won't last forever, right? Will the other Liars eventually have the chance to meet Aria’s new love interest? Ryan says...

Yes! To the question of whether he would have scenes with Troian, Ashley, and Shay, Ryan answered, “In the future eps I do.”

Whoa. That’s pretty good news for Jake, who wormed his way into our hearts just a little bit more last night when he patiently listened to Aria’s retelling of the Ezria affair. The fact that he didn’t immediately go running in the opposite direction gave him some serious points in our book. We’ve been speculating about how long Jake might be sticking around for, and this reveal ups Jake’s chances of becoming a long-term fixture in the PLL universe considerably.

Ryan’s answer also lends further weight to our thought that Jake, Aria, Paige, and Spencer might have a scene together. The four actors behind the characters recently created a silly Vine together during a late-night shoot. We would never have thought of this particular combination of characters together, and would love to know what they could possibly be up to...

Are you glad to hear Ryan will have scenes with the other Liars? Do you think one of those scenes will include Aria, Spencer, and Paige? Let us know in the comments below!
