Pretty Little Liars dropped a huge bomb on us last season with the information that Alison (Sasha Pieterse) and Ezra (Ian Harding) had briefly dated before she disappeared. Ezra ended the relationship as soon as he discovered Ali’s true age, but is there still something between these two characters? Ian doesn’t seem to think so. What did he tell The Wrap about Ezra and Ali’s relationship?

Ian said he thinks the romantic relationships between Ali and Ezra is totally over, but admits that his character’s fate is in the hands of the Pretty Little Liars writers: “I think he’s good on that,” Ian said in regards to Ali and Ezra’s brief romance. “I don’t know. Who knows? The writers could have something different in store — you know, we are at their mercy — but I think that that was a total mistake, too. He thought that she was somebody else, that she was older, something like that. She came off very much like that, and then afterwards he realized: Whoa, this is bad. And so he put the kabosh on it.”

We agree with Ian’s sentiment, and doubt the writers will take his character down that path again, especially if Ezria is, in fact, endgame. Though we may have our issues with Ezra’s character, we don’t think he was ever in love with Ali, nor did we think he would endanger his chance at getting back together with Aria — the person he really loves — by exploring anything romantic with Ali again.

Do you think anything romantic could ever happen between Ezra and Ali again? Sound off in the comments below!
