Do you have your tissues ready, Pretty Little Liars fans? Because it sounds like you'll need them for the Season 3 winter season.

Recently, PLL showrunner Marlene King tweeted, "Did I tell you that @IANMHARDING's performance in 317 made me cry. Stellar!"

Assuming Marlene wasn't shedding tears over Ian Harding's general awesomeness, it sounds like there's some sob-worthy Ezra moments coming up in Season 3, Episode 17: “Out of the Frying Pan, Into the Inferno.”

Does that mean more trouble for Ezra and Aria (Lucy Hale)? Maybe. But it could also be related to his ex, Maggie. Perhaps Episode 17 is when he finally finds out about his secret son.

We know Gregg Sulkin, who plays Ezra's brother Wesley, is back for Episodes 18 and 19, and apparently "mom" is a factor for Ezria in Episode 20. Could Ezra's family be rallying around him to help him deal with discovering he has a child? Or maybe there's some Fitz(gerald) family drama, and that's what leads to whatever made Marlene cry...

What do you think?
