In the Pretty Little Liars winter premiere, Ezra (Ian Harding) revealed his Lair 2.0, complete with mysterious basement. When giving Aria the tour of the cabin, he mentioned he was watching it for a friend who is out of town. You better bet that comment got our spidey sense a-tingling. Who does Ezra’s lair belong to?
Our first thought was that the cabin belongs to Dr. Wren. Not only does he probably have enough money to splurge on a random cabin right next to the town he lives in, but we know for a fact he was out of town because of the package we saw Shana mailing to him in London. We’ve never seen Wren and Ezra interact, but that could be part of their “A” Team plan. Could Ezra have been the one Wren was talking to on the phone in Season 4, Episode 11? In the same episode, Mona accused Wren of having allegiances to someone other than she initially assumed. We think Wren and Ezra are “A” Team buddies.
If it’s not Wren who owns the cabin, it could be his ex-fiance and current London roomie, Melissa. She also has the funds to purchase said cabin and has always been weirdly mysterious. We’ve never seen her hang with Ezra before, either, but they’re around the same age. Ezra mentioned that the cabin belongs specifically to a college buddy. We assumed the friend was male, but she doesn’t have to be. Could Ezra and Melissa have met while they were in college. They didn’t attend the same school, but that doesn’t mean they didn’t have mutual friends, or meet through some kind of extracurricular or study abroad program.
You know who else is out of town? Jason DiLaurentis! Out of our three potential cabin-owners, his absence from Rosewood was the only one mentioned. Coincidence? Never! Now that we think about it, we could totally see Jason and Ezra being friends, though, awkward that they both liked Aria at the same time. If Ezra and Jason are friends, might that mean Ezra is trying to help his college friend find his sister? We rather like that explanation of Ezra’s Ali-stalking habit. Alternatively, might Ezra and Ali have met through Jason before Ezra met any of the other Liars? We’re not sure how this might tie in with Ezra as “A,” but it could be another piece to the puzzle.
