Pretty Little Liars Season 5 Premiere Spoiler: Is Ezra Dead?

Warning! This article contains spoilers for the Pretty Little Liars Season 5 premiere (Season 5, Episode 1, "EscApe From New York"). Click away now if you don't want to know!

The Pretty Little Liars Season 4 finale ended with Ezra Fitz's (Ian Harding) life in the balance, thanks to a near-fatal shot from "A", and "A" minion, or some other trigger happy person in black. Whether or not you like or trust Ezra at all after the revelation of his stalkerish reporter backstory, his fate is pretty significant, especially because he claimed to know who the shooter was before he went down.

So, does Aria's (Lucy Hale) former boyfriend make it through the Season 5 premiere, or is he dead?

Oh, who are we kidding? Of course Ezra lives! Did you really think the show would kill him off?

That said, it was touch and go there for a while, and he's still not in great shape. Ezra's wounds were pretty severe, and it didn't help that his shooter followed him to the hospital (by hitching a ride on the ambulance) and did their best to shut him up for good. Fortunately, despite having a close call, in the end he pulled through. We think it's pretty safe to say he's going to be OK, though he might be stuck in the hospital for a while.

Are you glad Ezra's alive, or were you hoping he'd die? Let us know in the comments below!
