Who saw that proposal on Pretty Little Liars and freaked out like we did?!
If you missed last night’s episode, it was Ezra (Ian Harding) who got down on one knee for Aria (Lucy Hale) in the final moments of the episode, answering all our questions about which Liar was going to get that proposal. While we have to wait two weeks for Aria’s answer, we at least get some satisfaction over seeing her ring, thanks to ET.
Speaking with showrunner I. Marlene King, she dished on why it was Ezria, the proposal and more. Check it:
On why it was Ezra and Aria: “Well, we’re not saying that in the future that others also might not have their moment. We plotted this out when we first started this year, and we just thought because they were the first couple, we thought they should be the first to get engaged.”
On the two as a couple: “I think there’s just sort of that forbidden love that is just so appealing. Lucy and Ian have such great chemistry and I think they’re just so much fun to watch. As they’ve grown in this show, and their characters have grown up, it’s sort of just one of those relationships that’s undeniable, I would say.”
On the gorgeous ring: “It actually was something that we spent a lot of time on because we wanted it to be a ring that we really felt like Ezra Fitz would pick out for Aria Montgomery. [We wanted] something that felt unique to her — something that wasn’t necessarily a ring that just anybody would wear. It felt special and like something that Aria would really appreciate. And Cameron [Dale], our [head costume designer,] — even though it’s a prop — spent a lot of time with us showing us many, many different rings. It’s just so beautiful.”
On the other couples: “I will still say that season seven is the most romantic of all of our seasons and there’s many, many happy endings waiting for our characters and fans. We just have to wait and continue on in this winding path as we move forward. There’s still much romance to be had.”
