With less than 24 hours to go until season five of "Pretty Little Liars" airs, fans of the series are eagerly waiting to find out what is in store for some of their favorite characters when the show returns.
The previous season ended with Ezra being shot during a confrontation with "A" and from the looks of it, the Rosewood High English teacher knows who "A" is. In a trailer for the upcoming episode, Aria hints that Ezra might be able to help them track "A" when he recovers.
"The plan was to get Ali out of town tonight...But now that we know that 'A' is after Ezra …" Emily cuts her off and makes it clear that Ali is still a target. "I get that 'A' wants to shut Ezra up. But Ali is still a target. Can we think of another way to do this?"
"If Ezra," Aria begins, before correcting herself. "When Ezra pulls through he's going to tell us who 'A' is and this thing is finally going to over."
"A" is desperate to finish off Ezra once and for all, and because the Liars believe he will sneak into the hospital to do so, they leave Aria to guard her former boyfriend. With Aria at Ezra's bedside, the rest of the Liars devise a plan to trap "A," but they are shocked to find out who gets ensnared.
"Pretty Little Liars" creator and executive producer Marlene King earlier said in an interview that the identity of the person who shot Ezra will be revealed very early in the season and this is going to put Ezra's life even more in danger.
The Liars are going to have a tough time dealing with the return of Alison, and a lot of trust issues are sure to crop up. Alison's return is also going to affect Lucas, Paige, Noel Kahn, and everybody who was under her web.
"[Season 5], it's definitely a lot about Alison. It's a lot about her return to Rosewood and the dynamic that is shifting as she returns. She's a tornado in a lot of ways -- even when she doesn't want to be. It's just who she is," King told International Business Times US edition in a recent interview.
"The question is: Has she changed? Or hasn't she changed? Can the Liars -- or should they -- even trust her? It's a lot of Ali questions and having her back amongst the living and not in flashbacks. She's a real character and real person. She's not just one memory of how the girls perceived her or how the Pretty Little Liars perceived her. It's really exciting for us. We've had a lot of fun writing for Sasha [Pieterse] this year," she added.
"Pretty Little Liars" Season 5 will premiere on Tuesday June 10 on ABC Family.
