Waiting is the worst, right Pretty Little Liars fans? The Season 3 winter season doesn't start up again until January 8, 2013, but at least the cast and crew has been nice enough to spill some very interesting spoilers to ease the pain of the break.
So if you want to know more about what's next, we've gathered all of the juiciest spoilers about what's coming up for leading lady Aria Montgomery (Lucy Hale) right here.

Aria in trouble: One theme we keep hearing over and over is that poor Aria will definitely be targeted this season. Things will get "bad" for her — and when we say bad, we mean her near-death experience in the Halloween episode (Season 3, Episode 13: “This Is a Dark Ride”) is "just the beginning."
Who attacked her? Speaking of, we will get an idea about who attacked her in the 3B premiere (Season 3, Episode 14: “She’s Better Now”).
A vision of a friend. You know how Aria is the only Little Liar Alison (Sasha Pieterse) hasn't appeared to in a vision? That's going to change, and you can see a snippet of the meeting in the preview for the season.
Ezria update: Okay, and what about Ezra (Ian Harding) and his secret son? Well, for one thing, Lucy Hale has referred to Maggie's son as the child "you think is [Ezra's] son." Could it turn out the info Aria is keeping from Ezra — that he has a kid — is wrong? Either way, it sounds like the child will factor into the Aria/Ezra relationship, because Lucy Hale also hinted "they’re sort of trying to figure out what is best not only for them as individuals but he now has someone to take care of."
Also worth noting: Ezra is in the finale. No big surprise there, but it might be a good sign for Ezria.
More Fitz family: Speaking of Ezra and his potentially expanding family, we might meet his father, his mom is back, and so is his hottie brother Wesley (Gregg Sulkin) — and Wes brings new trouble. There are also hints that Wes might get a love interest. Could it be Aria, or would that be too weird?
What about Byron? Speaking of family, what about Aria's dad and his mysterious connection to the night Ali disappeared, which Garrett (Yani Gellman) revealed in the Halloween episode?
We don't know a ton about how that will play out, but we do know that the meeting was not a red herring; it will definitely impact the plot. And in this sneak peek of the season premiere, we can see that Aria is super defensive about her dad's potential involvement in what happened to Ali. Could that put her at odds with the other Little Liars?
