In the Pretty Little Liars Season 3 finale (Season 3, Episode 24: "A dAngerous gAme") Aria (Lucy Hale) and Ezra (Ian Harding) had their most definitive breakup yet. Aria declared that they both have to "move on." But will she actually try to date other people in Season 4? Based on new spoilers it sounds like the answer very well might be yes — and now we might even know who she's moving on with.

As we've previously noted, in Season 4 we're going to meet a hot martial arts instructor named Jake that one of the Liars will "take an interest" in. ET Online reports that this drool-worthy new guy will be played by Step Up Revolution hunk Ryan Guzman.
You only have to take one look at Ryan to realize no one that hot can show up in Rosewood and not have a spark with one of the Liars. Aria is the only single Liar right now, and that's not the only reason to think she'll be the one Ryan cozies up to.
"Its gunna be interesting teachin @lucyhale martial arts for our scenes," Ryan tweeted. "Let's see if I can get her to do a judo hip throw."
Ryan also noted yesterday (March 21) that he was at his "first" PLL table read. Since yesterday was the table read for Season 4, Episode 2, we can expect to see him to show up in that episode, which is reportedly called “Turn of the Shoe.”
So, he's hot, he shows up early in the season when Aria is probably still dealing with the break up, and he's teaching Aria martial arts (maybe she decides she needs to be able to defend herself. About time!). If that's not enough to have Ezria shippers worried, this should do the trick: Writer Bryan Holdman predicts Ezria fans will "hate" Jake despite his good looks.
Are you looking forward to this new hottie, or are you already prepared to loathe him for catching Aria's eye?
