Alright team, I wrote a post a couple weeks back about how I had just finished binge watching Season 1 of Pretty Little Liars. I am now 3/4 of the way through Season 4 and I am freaking out.
I’m currently limited to 1 episode a day (you know, I probably shouldn’t watch 12 episodes each day while on vacation) and it’s not enough! I know I could finish the rest of the season in one sitting, but with the current episode limit the suspense is killing me.
I just don’t see how this can end happily for my OTP!! Ugh! I went from loving and smiling through every Ezria scene and then rewatching them on repeat in the days to follow to shaking my head and saying ‘no, no, no’ repeatedly each time they’re together on screen.
Now, just like my last post, I know that everyone who’s reading this has probably already seen the entirety of PLL Season 4 and probably the seasons that follow. But I am new to this and experiencing it for the first time. And right now it’s just too much.
A few weeks back I said to Kris and KG that I love Ezra so much that he can do no wrong and that I would forgive him if he was working for A. I just didn’t think it would actually happen! I was completely blindsided! I was too wrapped up in Aria and Ezra finding each other and being happy again. I never thought that he would play a bigger role. Given the fact that he is an ‘older guy’ and apparently has a thing for high school students (just a little creepy). I should have seen it coming. But I just did not. I was so blinded by my OTP and by how pretty Ian Harding is.
Now I know I will probably get a few answers in the remaining 6 episodes of the season but as of right now I can’t see this ending well. Ezra and Alison were apparently a thing. Ezra and Aria are now a thing. Ezra has kept this a secret for over a year. Ezra is working for A. That is what I know. I also know he isn’t A (I know A’s identity isn’t revealed yet for those who are caught up).
What I don’t know is why!! I just don’t understand why!?! Why now?!? Why in season 4 is Ezra suddenly working for A? I’m choosing to believe that him and Aria really are meant to be and he does love her and doesn’t want to hurt her. But that still doesn’t tell me why. Why did it take 3.5 seasons for this side of Ezra to come out?! What has changed? Is it something to do with Alison being alive? What does she have on him? Or is it something to do with Malcolm? Or did someone find out about him and Aria? Does he realize that Aria is never going to forgive him? Is he being blackmailed into it? What does he have to gain by doing this? I’m just so confused!!! The more I ramble and put my questions into words the more I hope I come up with some answers. But so far I’m not having any luck.
Now Spencer, Hanna and Emily are on to Fitz and Aria is spending nights at his cabin and I am so confused. How are they going to tell Aria? Will she believe them? I’m definitely thinking too much about this show for someone who is on vacation.
This will probably be at least slightly resolved by the end of the season, but what happens next? I don’t think this is the end of Ezra and Aria, their love can overcome anything, right?? This is just a speed bump – a pretty big speed bump. But this can’t be the end of them. Perhaps I’m just naive but I’m refusing to believe this is the end of my OTP.
I should be able to finish this season within the next week. But then I’ll be home and able to binge watch through the remaining episodes. I’ll keep everyone posted on my thoughts. I’m sure there’ll be something else for me to rant about coming up.
Thanks for reading! I’m now off to try this boisenberry pie and beer combo
