Aria sure has a lot on her plate this season of Pretty Little Liars, what with uncovering Ezra’s (Ian Harding) unknown son, being locked in a crate with Garrett Reynolds’ (Yani Gellman) dead body, and discovering her dad, Byron (Chad Lowe) just might have something to do with Alison’s murder.
Now, in the second half of this season, actress Lucy Hale says it’s all going to sink in for Aria.
“I think there’s a slow realization of the weight of the actual situation and she comes to terms with it,” says Hale. “I mean, she’s living at home. She lives with her dad. So she’s living at home with a [possible] monster, not knowing if he had anything to do with it or if he was framed in some way. It’s interesting how it all plays out, but it does play out.”
As for keeping the secret of Ezra’s son…Aria will start to really think about what that means for her, too.
“This happening to anyone is probably overwhelming, but for someone as young as Aria, it makes her [wonder] if this is what she really wants,” Hale says. “She really grows up in this second half of the season and it’s pretty cool.”
How do you think Byron is connected to Alison (Sasha Pieterse) and her death, and what choices will Aria make this season for her relationship with Ezra?
