‘PLL’: Shooting Ezra Was Smart — But Please Don’t Kill Him Off

Wed, March 19, 2014 10:16am EDT by 28 Comments

Last night’s ‘Pretty Little Liars’ finale packed four years of mystery into one hour, but the most shocking moment was the cliffhanger when Ezra got shot. Dare I say, shooting Mr. Fitz was smart? I think it was. But, please don’t kill him off — we need our Ezra!

The Pretty Little Liars Season 4 finale went out with a bang — literally! Alison (Sasha Pietersetold all, and I’m while still processing the near half decade of revelations, I’m really stuck on the fact that Ezra (Ian Harding) was shot, presumably by a masked “A.” Keep reading to find out why I think this cliffhanger will keep fans hanging for more Ezra in Season 5, and watch our EXCLUSIVE interview with Ian below!

It Was Smart To Shoot Ezra — But Please Don’t Kill Him Off!

It’s still hard to believe that Ezra was actually shot at the end of the March 18 Season 4 finale, but I think it was a good idea to shoot Mr. Fitz — just as long as he doesn’t get killed of Pretty Little Liars!

Ezra has been beyond sketchy all season long, to say the least, from following the girls to hiding out in his creepy cabin — and scaring us to death by thinking he was going to bring death upon Aria (Lucy Hale) — and, of course, by convincing the liars (and viewers) that he was “A!” Although we found out near the end of Season 4 that Ezra’s antics were all in the name of literature, his creep factor still hit a high point.

At the end of last night’s episode, the girls were being chased by a masked assailant who we’ve got to assume is “A,” but then who knows in this show (keep reading to see why “A” could still be Ezra). Once they got up to the roof, they were greeted by Ezra, and their lives were put in danger. Ultimately, Hanna (Ashley Benson) grabbed the bad guy’s gun, but when he jumped across to another rooftop, the girls realized that they were not all safe. Ezra was left with a gun wound.

This came as a huge surprise for viewers, but I think it did more than add shock value. It added sympathy value.

After an entire season of hating on Ezra, the girls are now super concerned about him (rightfully so), as he was left laying, possibly dying, in Aria’s crying arms. In a way, Ezra getting shot could serve as his punishment for an entire season of frightening Mr. Fitz — but again, I will retract that statement if he doesn’t survive!

Ezra Will Probably Survive And Make It To The Next Season

Viewers were left hanging on for Ezra’s dear life, and now we have to wait until the Season 5 premiere on June 10 to find out if he lives on! Cross our fingers, hope to die — eh, maybe we shouldn’t say that, since “A” is lurking somewhere.

However, we have some pretty good intel that Ezra will survive, as he EXCLUSIVELY told us at the series’ red carpet finale event on March 18 in NYC, “Especially after tonight, a lot of going to be called into question.” He said after tonight — that means there should be more Mr. Fitz after the finale!

If Ezra Lives, Could He Still Be ‘A’?

Right now, I just hope that Ezra makes it out alive so I can’t even process that there’s still a chance that he could be “A,” but this is liars’ land, after all, and weirder things have happened.

HollywoodLife.com spoke EXCLUSIVELY with the entire Pretty Little Liars cast last night at the show’s big red carpet finale event, and Ian Harding (Ezra) told us that there’s still a chance. “I don’t know. They could pull something last minute in whatever season we end this on.” Ian added EXCLUSIVELY, “I can jump out and be like, ‘Ha! The whole time, gotcha!’ So there’s always that possibility. I don’t really know. I have a lot of questions and I think there are going to be a lot of questions that come with this finale so I truly don’t know.”

As we reported before last night’s episode, the executive producers clued us in on Ezra’s fate as “A,” and last night, series creator Marlene King also solidified this possibility, EXCLUSIVELY pointing out that the show is called Pretty Little Liars, thus resulting in everyone having major secrets — and Ezra being “A” might just be one of them.

HollywoodLifers, do you think that there’s still a chance that Ezra might be “A?” And will you be sad if he is killed of the show?

Ezra is definitely still alive. Marlene had said earlier this season that she couldn’t imagine the show without him. And so many people have already fell in love with him over the seasons. I think that if he really does get killed off many people will be so mad and it will start so much chaos. I don’t think Marlene would really “kill” him off. Like I said she did say that she couldn’t imagine the show without him in it so what does that make you think? I hope this helped out a lot.

Poor Ezra! I cried upon seeing him at death’s door.
Theory: When Melissa was whispering to her father, she told him she killed the girl that was in Ali’s grave.
It make sense, because she was pissed at her for interfering with Ian!

What about Alison’s brother? She was always mean to her mother and she still doted on her. Could he be jealous enough? The clinic where he supposedly went to rehab had been closed for 2 years. Why would he lie?

The girl in the other grave could be Ali’s twin? I know they said they werent gonna do it but it makes sense since twins have identical DNA! & why would they keep the girl who died instead of Ali a secret if it wasnt someone important. Because it’s obviously someone we dont know but who is important. If it was a random girl named Beth or something why would they keep it a secret?

SO I have a theory, Mrs d had a twin who was tobys mum, she took revenge on Alison for throwing the fire starter in his house, she hit Ali went back to the hospital realised what she had done and jumped off the building. Now Toby is taking revenge and looking for Ali, he killed Mrs d because she didn’t save his mum. A bit far fetched and the jumping of tobys mum probably doesn’t go with the timing but still PLL could make anything happen. Also toby may have recruited the others as they hated Ali and want their videos back.

Toby wasnt available for filming as the actor was in a play thus the whole he went to London story line when he could have picked up a phone. No real reason for no Jenna or garret flashback as the whole idea was that alison was going around talking to all her A suspects however she had already dealt with Jenna And i think her talking to Ian was suppose to cover her for all the NAT club so it was kinda pointless or they simply didnt have time in the ep

I really hope Ezra survives otherwise I will cry but honestly I don’t think they will, before he gets shots he says ‘i know who you are” and “the police are here” so if he knows who A is he can’t survive unless he has memory loss or somthing but fingers crosses he lives.

I’ve heard that Ian Harding has signed another contract for the 5th season, so hopefully we’ll get him back in June :) He must stay alive, otherwise Aria will be totally ‘shot down’ with all the drama in her life, so! Let’s pray for it :P
