We have our first sneak peek into the Season 5 premiere of Pretty Little Liars, and we are loving the cool, tense NYC atmosphere happening in the season-opener (aptly titled “EscApe From New York”). In the 30-second video, the Liars argue about which should be the priority: helping Ali (Sasha Pieterse) escape or keeping Ezra (Ian Harding) safe. Which will they choose? Check it out!

“The plan was to get Ali out of town tonight, but now that we know ‘A’’s after Ezra?” Aria (Lucy Hale) says to the other Liars — including Ali, who is standing right there — on a darkened NYC street.

Emily (Shay Mitchell) is totally Team Ali: “I get that ‘A’ wants to shut Ezra up, OK, but Ali is still a target. Can we think of another way to do this?” Spencer (Troian Bellisario) is at a loss for words and plan, which is never a good sign.

Aria is totally Team Ezra: “If Ezra...when Ezra pulls through, he’s going to tell us who ‘A’ is and this thing is finally going to be over.” Something tells us it’s not going to be that easy, Aria darling.

Meanwhile, Hanna (Ashley Benson) continues her late Season 4 streak of being a clever detective novel protagonist and calls the police: “Um, hi,” she says into her phone as the others listen in. “The guy who just got shot at Bank and Hudson is Ezra Fitz. Yeah, I think you should send a cop to the hospital because I saw what happened and I don’t think this was a random thing.” Now, they just need to get out of NYC.


Do you think the Liars will be able to get Ali out of NYC? Will Hanna’s plan to protect Fitz work? Share your theories in the comments below!
