For being the protagonist of the show, Aria (Lucy Hale) sometimes seems to get off easy on Pretty Little Liars. We're not saying we'd want to trade lives with her, but compared to the other Liars she hasn't suffered nearly as much — especially not at the hands of "A".

Will this Liar's luck finally run out in the Season 3 winter season? A new tweet from PLL writer Andy Reaser hints at the answer.

A fan recently asked Andy how much torture Aria will undergo in the winter season, wondering especially if she might undergo trials somewhere at the level of what Emily (Shay Mitchell) has been put through.

Andy replied, "No one will ever be able to say Aria gets off easy again."

Whoa! Bold statement, Andy. It sounds like the writers are definitely planning to put Aria through the wringer come the winter. We know Aria now has a huge secret — knowing about Ezra's son. We wonder if the "A" team will find a way to use that against her (assuming Aria's problems are "A" related at all).

Are you excited to see Aria's plotline next season, or would you prefer she not suffer too much?

Don’t miss the next new episode of PLL, the Halloween special, on Tuesday, October 23 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC Family.
