Pretty Little Liars creator, Marlene King told Zap2It that, though our Liar couples have certainly gone through the ringer (and surely there’s more to come), at least two couples (plural) will survive through this season’s finale.
“We promised you guys some good news, too, so here it is: After all the torment of Season 3B, we can tell you that more than one established couple will survive the season intact. ‘Yes. There are couples that survive — couples, plural,’ says King. ‘There’s an S on the end of that.’”
But before the finale, we know that Spencer (Troian Bellisario) will find out about Toby (Keegan Allen), and Aria (Lucy Hale) will still be dealing with Ezra’s (Ian Harding) baby secret – which, by the way, will unfold before season 3′s end, says writer and executive producer, Oliver Goldstick.
“First of all, we can confirm that it won’t be long before Ezra finds out about his six-year-old son, and while he won’t be particularly angry at Aria for keeping it from him, the introduction of the little boy will become a major obstacle in their relationship.
“‘I can’t say Aria’s going to [reveal it], but it’s going to happen, and it’s going to be a tectonic shift in their relationship,’ Goldstick says. ‘We try to handle it in this grounded way. Ezra is profoundly affected by this. It’s enormous, and it’s life changing, and he’s going to have to reevaluate everything, including his relationship with Aria….
‘Look, he’s in love with this girl. We’ve done our best to make it believable that a 23-year-old would be interested in her; she’s more sophisticated than your average high school girl. We try to make it credible that they’d have something to talk about…. But she’s going to feel out of place here. Ezra’s going through something that’s really out of her league. How to comfort him, how to discuss this, what role should she play, where does she fit into this equation. She’s suddenly an outsider in this equation. She doesn’t really have a place in this nuclear family.’”
Add in the return of Ezra’s baby brother, Wesley (Gregg Sulkin), and I’m sure we’ll end up with one confused Aria. Will she stick it out with Ezra, or will she really start to question if she’s ready for all this grown-up stuff?
