Could Emily and Ezra be teaming up when Pretty Little Liars returns for its winter season? This behind-the-scenes pic from Season 5B seems to suggest that Shay Mitchell and Ian Harding will be spending some one-on-one time together this season. Is Ezra helping Emily with her college applications? Or are they teaming up to hunt down “A”?


Of course, these two could also be working against Ali. After all, they both have reasons to not trust her. Ezra and Ali had a confrontation in the most recent episode of PLL (Season 5, Episode 10), in which Ezra told Ali that her actions affect other people, mainly the Liars. Not to mention he’s probably still upset over her lying about her age. And Emily ended her friendship with Ali in the same episode, when Ali went rogue and identified Cyrus as her kidnapper, even though she promised Em she wouldn’t.

So Emily and Ezra both have motives to work against Ali. So is Ezra busting out his spy equipment to keep tabs on Ali? Now, that would be an interesting twist! Or are Emily and Ezra simply in a throwaway scene we’ll barely remember the next day? We’ll have to see!

Catch this episode of Pretty Little Liars on Tuesday, August 19 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC Family.
