For those of you lamenting Ezria’s breakup, despair not! Yes, things may be rocky right now between Aria (Lucy Hale) and Ezra (Ian Harding) — and, by rocky, we mean Aria telling Ezra it is time to move on in the Season 3 finale — but Pretty Little Liars showrunner Marlene King’s recent tweet leaves the door open for an Ezria reunion in the future.

“There’s always hope,” Marlene told Twitter followers last night. By itself, this tweet may not be immensely confidence-building, but armed with the knowledge that Marlene “will always have a soft spot for Ezria,” we say it’s a safe bet that these two won’t be apart forever.

In the meantime, we might as well enjoy the angsty gazing across classrooms, the hidden messages of love Ezra leaves for Aria in his chalkboard scribblings, the shiny red apples Aria can’t help but place on Ezra’s desk. The possibilities are endless!

Alternatively, it might be fun to see Aria pursuing romance elsewhere. Rumor has it Step Up Revolution hunk Ryan Guzman will be playing a martial arts instructor who Ezria fans will hate. Could this be Aria’s new love interest?

Are you happy to hear that there’s hope for Ezria or are you over their romance? Let us know in the comments below!
