‘Pretty Little Liars’ returns Jan. 2 at 8 p.m. on ABC Family, and we got all the scoop straight from the liars’ mouths!
Hold onto your “A,” kids! The winter premiere of Pretty Little Liars is just three days away, but because I know how much you all hate waiting, I put together a list of the five biggest things you’ll have to look forward to on Jan. 2.
1. Ezria’s big reveal: When Aria (Lucy Hale) and Ezra (Ian Harding) finally come clean about their extracurricular affair on the winter premiere, they learn they’re going to have to roll with the punches — literally. “Their relationship has always been sort of a roller coaster,” Lucy admitted to us Nov. 11 at Cosmopolitan‘s “Kisses For The Troops” event in NYC. “It’s going to continue to be like that for a while.”
2. “Spoby” drama: Fans of Spencer (Troian Bellisario) and Toby’s (Keegan Allen) relationship will have plenty to look forward to on the winter premiere — but that might not necessarily be a good thing. ”‘A”s’ main goal with Spencer is to destroy her love,” Troian told us Dec. 4 at ABC Family’s Winter Wonderland event in NYC. “It’s a really awful situation.”
3. Emily fights back: “A” once called Emily (Shay Mitchel) the “weakest link” of the group, but after the winter premiere, that nickname will need a serious update. “She is a lot stronger,” Shay told us Dec. 4 at ABC Family’s Winter Wonderland event in NYC. ”When we saw her in the first half of season two, Emily was definitely getting attacked more than any of the other girls. In this second half, she’s taking a stand. She gains a lot of confidence.”
4. Hanna’s new (old) enemy: The girls have collected quite a few nemeses thus far, but Hanna (Ashley Benson) is about to be revisited by a particularly bitchy one. When I talked to her Dec. 4 at ABC Family’s Winter Wonderland event in NYC, Ashley told me the character in question — who will be revealed on the winter premiere — is going to cause “plenty of trouble” for Hanna this season.
5. “A” gets “creepier” than ever: With “A’s” big reveal just months away, you can expect the second half of season two to be the show’s most intense part yet — and the fun begins on the winter premiere. “‘A’ is sort of creepier than before, if that’s possible,” Lucy told me Dec. 4 at ABC Family’s Winter Wonerland event in NYC. Seriously, prepare to have your “A” creeped off.
OK, that’s all I can say for now. I don’t want to give everything away! So watch the premiere at 8 p.m. on Jan. 2, and check out ABC Family’s official site for more show details.
