Ian Harding may have laughed when he discovered who “A” is on the Pretty Little Liars Season 2 finale (according to Lucy Hale [Aria]), but there won’t be many laughs for Ezria in the final episodes of the season.
In an interview with TVLine, Ian (Ezra Fitz) reveals that “some really juicy stuff...happens, especially in the last two episodes — so much that I almost don’t even want to talk about it because it’s just so good.”
Fortunately for us, he does talk about it, and we’ve rounded up some major spoilers from the interview here:
Byron closes in on Ezra. Ian says that Byron (Chad Lowe) will be “checking in” on Ezra, which will lead to an incredibly “tense” conversation between the two men in Aria’s life. But apparently something a little more complicated than “more of the same” happens when Byron does his checking. “Something happens and there’s a switch, so one of us decides to no longer keep up the facade [of hiding the relationship].” What kind of “switch” could this be? Maybe Byron mistakenly thinks Aria is secretly seeing someone else?
Ezria will never be at peace. “There will never be a moment — not until maybe the series is done for good — where they can relax.” Well, PLL wouldn’t really be the same if Ezria got hitched, moved to New Orleans, and sat around an apartment reading and rubbing each other’s feet all day, would it? But, Ian says, “things get a little more solidified in where they stand together, as a couple.
Speaking of New Orleans... Ezra isn’t turning down that job opportunity so fast, at least not just because Byron’s offer is less based on his teaching ability and more based on his departure from Rosewood. “[Ezra] still wants it because it’s a really good job. It will move his career eight years ahead of schedule,” says Ian. “This puts Aria off a little bit because she thinks it’s a no-brainer to turn it down, but Ezra is a little like, ‘Well...’” Maybe Ezra’s rumored absence has to do with him scoping out the Big Easy?
Okay, enough about love — what about “A”?! Unlike PLL producer Lisa Cochran-Neilan, who told Wetpaint Entertainment that the audience will be “screaming at their TVs” during the Season 2 finale, Ian says that “People will be pleasantly surprised.” He does admit that he was “kind of shocked,” though.
But perhaps most intriguing is Ian’s hint that finding out “A”’s identity is “not even the biggest part of the episode — which really says something. There must be something huge in this finale if revealing who ‘A’ is isn’t the biggest shocker.”
We agree, Ian! Are we the only ones who are actually getting legitimately nervous for the final episodes of PLL Season 2? But we also can’t wait!
