Forget Noel Kahn — the real threat to Ezria’s relationship may be none other than Aria’s mom, Ella!
Aria’s (Lucy Hale) forbidden relationship with English teacher Ezra (Ian Harding) has always had obstacles to face on Pretty Little Liars, but it might just be hitting its most bizarre hurdle yet — her mom, Ella (Holly Marie Combs!) “Byron recognizes Ezra is a very enigmatic person, and perhaps his wife has taken a shine to him,” Chad Lowe tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively.
Chad continues: “He needs to have a ‘how come and what for’ with Ezra to make sure he understands that Ella is a married woman.”
Keep in mind, though, it’s possible this is all one big misunderstanding. Mixed signals are kind of running rampant in the Montgomery home these days.
“Clearly, Byron may be missing the point altogether,” Chad admits.
So is there any chance for a happy ending in Byron and Ella’s future? Chad certainly hopes so, but it sounds like we’ll have to wait a while to find out for sure.
“I want them together, I can tell you that officially,” Chad says. “That will be an exciting discovery in season two, figuring out whether it’s going to work for them.”
And even though I’m personally pulling for them to end up together, Chad admits he’s still not sure how most viewers feel.
“I’ve never been quite sure what direction everyone hopes it’ll go in,” he says. “I wonder if it’s not 50/50 down the middle. People are trying to decide whether they want to root for them together or apart.”
How do YOU feel about Byron and Ella? Are you hoping they work it out, or does she deserve someone who, you know, didn’t cheat on her?
