Lucy Hale: We're Gonna Blow Fans' Minds
To say this season of Pretty Little Liars is killing it would be an understatement.
From the PLL's plotting to A's unraveling agenda, not a single moment has been wasted as every week brings us closer and closer to unveiling the blackmailer's identity.
Amid all the intrigue, Rosewood's hormones have continued to run rampant thanks to the return of Maya, Toby's truck lovin' and the never ending Ezria saga. Last week's major setback in Aria's lovelife was just one of the topics Lucy Hale touched upon when we chatted at ABC's TCA party.
Insider.com: You know that last week's episode sent Ezria fans into a deep, deep depression, right?
Lucy Hale: [laughs]. I know, I know. But wait until you see what we have coming up. Just wait.
Insider: Do you think Aria regrets telling her parents?
Lucy: No! It was about time! It took huge balls, excuse my language [laughs], on Ezra's part. He needed to man up. Obviously it completely backfired, but I'm glad it went there.
Insider: So you're still Team Ezra -- we don't have to worry about Holden, right?
Lucy: Well ... Holden is going to play a big part in Aria's storyline for the next couple of episodes – obviously Ezria is always up and down, which is what makes it so fantastic. Right now we're down, but there's lots of good stuff coming up. One of my favorite scenes that Ian [Harding] and I have ever shot is coming up.
Insider: What makes it one of your favorite scenes, ever?
Lucy: What I love about them so much is their chemistry. And I don't know how Ian and I have so much chemistry – the fans call it eye sex, and so it's just that. The scene is all about that eye connection.
Insider: Another big reveal is coming later this season when A's identity is revealed -- what did you think when Marlene told you that was going to happen?
Lucy: Finally! [laughs] With a million exclamation points! This is the moment that the series has been building to since day one and to give people that answer they've been waiting for will feel so good. As an actor, it'll be so interesting to see where the series goes from that point. We start filming season three in a few months, so I don't even know what to expect.
Insider: What would you tell fans to expect from that finale? A million cliffhangers?
Lucy: I mean … it's Pretty Little Liars. Of course there are! I'm so proud of this season -- every episode raises the bar. And the finale is unbelievable. It's literally going to blow your minds.
Pretty Little Liars airs Mondays at 8 p.m. on ABC Family.
