While the "A" team hasn't been easy on Aria (Lucy Hale) over the course of Pretty Little Liars, they haven't been all that hard on her, either, at least not compared to the other Liars. But a new tweet from PLL writer Andy Reaser confirms that's going to change in a big way.

We already knew Aria will be targeted during the Season 3 winter season.

Recently, a fan asked Andy, "How bad will Aria get tortured? Like Emily torture, or less?" — referring, of course, to the fact that "A" has relentlessly targeted Emily (Shay Mitchell) in the past.

Andy's reply was simple, but foreboding: "Bad."

What do you think: Will the "A" team use Ariza's knowledge of Ezra's (Ian Harding) secret kid against her? How else might our girl be tortured? Share your theories in the comments below!
