There’s been much talk about Ezria's future on Pretty Little Liars since the reveal that Ezra (Ian Harding) dated Ali and has been investigating the Liars for a book. But there’s at least one fan who thinks they might be able to pull through this in Season 5 — Ian Harding. What did he tell E! Online about the quality of Ezria’s love for one another?
"They're going to have to clearly like regain trust, but I don't think it's the end. Emphasis on 'think,'" Ian said. "I think the love that they have is just so insanely strong, and it's why such a cerebral, intellectual guy as Ezra decided to say, 'No, screw you law enforcement, I'm gonna go for this.' I don't think that can just simply end because I think Ezra is a good person. He's just driven by this obsession."
Well, that’s quite the support of their love. But what does Lucy Hale (Aria) have to say about all of this?: "I feel like Aria's a hopeless romantic," Lucy explained. "I want to say that hopefully she'll come around and be with him, but at the end of season four, things are up in the air. It's almost like how much more can they take, you know? So I don't know. If she's strong enough to get back with him, I would hope so, but we'll see."
Sounds like both actors are hesitantly hopeful about their characters’ romantic future together. We suppose we’re the same way — though our hope has more to do with Ezra’s (and the show’s) ability to convince us that he deserves to be with Aria after all of his duplicitousness and general creeping. That being said, we’re not necessarily ready to write Ezria off completely, and it seems neither is Ian nor Lucy.
Do you think Ezria has a chance? Do you want them to? Sound off in the comments below!
