Lucy Hale Talks Ezra & New Love Liam on PLL (6B Spoilers)

The second half of Pretty Little Liars season six will be rough for Ezria fans.  In the November special of PLL “Five Years Forward”, Lucy Hale revealed that her character Aria is in love with Liam.  Lucy has now given even more details about Aria’s love life in season 6B.  Seems like Aria will be torn between her new love Liam and her former love Ezra.

When we start PLL season 6B, it will seem like Aria has moved on.  Aria is “very happy and in love” with her new boyfriend Liam, Lucy Hale told People.

However, that doesn’t mean Aria’s feelings for Ezra are completely gone.  “That's what happens, you break up with the person you love, you go in different directions, and so I don't really know what their contact was in those five years. I want to say they probably didn't talk at all, because there is a scene in an episode back where she realizes he's back in town and you can tell there's still that butterflies-in-her-stomach feeling,” Lucy said.

And even if Aria and Ezra aren’t dating, they will still have a lot of interaction with each other.  However, their relationship has evolved.  “It's sort of a different kind of a relationship.  You've never seen them have a mature friendship like this, and they start working with each other.”

Are you excited to see Aria with someone new or are you waiting for Aria to get back together with Ezra?

Liars and Their Significant Others During the 5 Year Time Jump:

Aria went to Georgia and majored in photography, but she rediscovered her love for writing. She transferred to Boston and changed majors to writing. Aria eventually started working for a publisher. Despite appearing to move on from the torture inflicted by "A", Aria is still in denial and isn't fully over what happened to her in the past. Aria hides behind her work and her relationships.

Hanna studied fashion at FIT in New York and interned for Zac Posen. In Europe, she met her current boss Claudia Greco, who she now works for as an assistant.

Spencer went to Georgetown. With "A" gone, she finally got to focus on academics and she got involved in politics. After graduating from Georgetown, she started working on Capitol Hill for a lobbyist. However, she's essentially a glorified coffee gopher. When PLL returns, Spencer will be living in the Hastings barn. Spencer will also be helping her mom run for a seat in the Senate.

PLL 5 Years Forward Sneak Peek: Ashley Benson Picked Theme Song “Secret”

“Secret” by The Pierces is the perfect theme song for Pretty Little Liars.  In fact, it’s so perfect that people often assume the song was written for the show.  In this sneak peek for the PLL "5 Years Forward" special, we find out how "Secret" was chosen as the show's theme song.

Actress Ashley Benson (Hanna) was the one who suggested using “Secret” as the theme song for PLL.  Troian Bellisario (Spencer) remembers Ashley Benson playing the song on her cell phone and asking PLL showrunner Marlene King to use it as the theme song.

Thanks to Ashley Benson, Pretty Little Liars has the perfect theme song.  When PLL returns for the second half of season 6, it will have a new opening title sequence to go with the theme song.  Sasha Pieterse (Alison) joins the other actresses in the intro.  Also, all the girls will do the “shhh” that Lucy Hale (Aria) did in previous seasons.  Check out the new opening sequence and get a behind-the-scenes look at the girls filming the new PLL intro.

PLL 5 Years Forward Special Sneak Peek: How PLL Moms Escaped the Basement

The summer finale of PLL “Game Over, Charles” left fans with a lot of unanswered questions.  One question fans had was what happened to the PLL moms.  We saw “A” trap them in the DiLaurentis basement, but we never saw them rescued.  Fans joked that the moms were forgotten and still trapped in the basement.

In this sneak peek of the Pretty Little Liars special “5 Years Forward” the actresses who play the PLL moms give their theories on how the moms escaped the basement after “A” trapped them.

Actress Lesley Fera, Veronica Hastings on PLL, joked that they lived off Mr. DiLaurentis’s scotch for a while.  Her theory is that Mr. DiLaurentis eventually came down to do the laundry and rescued them.

Pretty Little Liars “5 Years Forward” airs tonight, November 24th at 8pm/7c on ABC Family.

PLL 5 Years Forward Sneak Peek: New Big Bad

PLL actresses Lucy Hale, Troian Bellisario, Ashley Benson and Shay Mitchell talk about the new Big Bad in this sneak peek of the Pretty Little Liars “Five Years Forward” special episode.

The Liars come back to Rosewood when Alison asks them to help Charlotte, but an event occurs that forces the girls to stay in Rosewood.

The Liars start getting messages again.  They know the new messages aren’t from Charlotte.  Actress Troian Bellisario (Spencer) explains that this time the messages feel different.  It’s not about exposing secrets this time.  It is paranoia, blackmail and life-threatening situations.

Actor Keegan Allen (Toby) agrees.  It’s no longer a manipulation game.  It’s now more dark and twisted.

Moving forward, the Liars aren’t victims.  They are ready to fight back against the new Big Bad in this life-or-death situation.

Watch the PLL special “5 Years Forward” tonight, November 24th at 8pm/7c.

Shay Mitchell & Lucy Hale Talk About Their First Cars

PLL actresses Shay Mitchell (Emily) and Lucy Hale (Aria) talk about their first cars in this OTF/“On The Fly” ABC Family video.

Shay Mitchell’s first car was a blue/purple Volkswagen Golf.  Her parents gave it to her when she turned 16.  They even put a huge bow on the car.  Shay used to call the car her “little blueberry”.

Lucy Hale’s first car was a Prius.  She got her license at 18 instead of 16 because she was scared of all the crazy drivers in Los Angeles.  That car was her first major purchase.
