Listen up, little liars!
We've already gifted our fellow fans with 14 mind-blowing secrets to get you pumped for Pretty Little Liars' sixth season, but now it's time to put the 'A' drama on pause, and focus on the real reason we tune in each and every week: the couples!
That's right y'all -- It's time for another edition of ETonline's PLL Romance Rundown where we fill you in on what's next for each of the liars' love lives. We called up executive producer Oliver Goldstick and he promised that each of our ladies and their respective sweethearts are in for some serious changes this season.
Aria: To say that season five was a rocky one for Aria (Lucy Hale) and Ezra (Ian Harding) would be a drastic understatement. In a devastating twist, the duo decided to part ways. It seemed like Aria had successfully moved on with new beau Andrew (Brandon W. Jones), but something tells us that we have not seen the end of Ezria.
"I think the universe is sending her some real mixed messages," Goldstick spilled. "Part of her knows that she and Ezra need to go their separate ways, but something happens in the beginning of [season] six A that brings them very close together again."
The EP continued, "This will be a challenge and they're both going to have to deal with it. It's a mixed message from the universe."
Hanna: Let's be honest: Caleb (Tyler Blackburn) is one of the most understanding and sweetest boyfriends on TV, and even though Hanna (Ashley Benson) knows how great her guy is, her recent run-in with 'A' is definitely going to affect their dynamic.
"Because of her trauma, she might not be able to appreciate how great Caleb is right away in [season] six," Goldstick said. Hey, we don't blame her. If we had been kidnapped and tortured by a crazy masked murderer, we think we might push some people away too.
"But I think that these two have something that is pretty damn special," he explained. "I think he's always been there to support her with every decision she makes, and I think he remains the perfect boyfriend in so many ways." Hooray for Haleb!
Emily: While 'A's dollhouse is most definitely going to strain some relationships, it's also going to bring others closer together -- especially for Emily (Shay Mitchell).
"She might just realize that she's now got a soul mate closer to her than she ever thought," Goldstick coyly teased. "And the dollhouse will have been a big factor in a shift of what Emily wants in a partner. Who and what she wants."
Better start shouting out your guesses, PLL fans. Do you think Goldstick is talking about Paily, Emison, or a brand-new duo?
Spencer: Much like Ezria, Spoby had a frustrating back-and-forth season five as Toby (Keegan Allen) tried to find the balance between dating a PLL and becoming Rosewood's newest police officer.
"Spencer (Troian Bellisario) will be challenged as well, but the great news is she's got an inside track at the Rosewood PD," the showrunner said. "So Spencer -- who has always led a lot of this mystery train -- holds the key because she was obviously the first one to see [Charles'] movie."
Goldstick made sure to warn all the Spoby fans out there that Spencer's Nancy Drew tendencies are going to become her main focus in season six A. "I would just say that her romance may get a little addled by the mystery of it all, but that doesn’t mean her romance goes away completely," he promised.
Alison: The littlest DiLaurentis had a pretty unromantic fifth season while she was dealing with that whole living-behind-bars-because-she-was-on-trial- for-murder thing. (Just your typical teenage struggles, right?) But now it's time for Alison's (Sasha Pieterse) love life to change.
"I think you're going to be excited that there's life after prison for Alison and that she doesn’t have to wear orange," Goldstick said. "Once she puts on a different color she may be attracted to somebody in Rosewood who you won't expect -- an unlikely person. And an unlikely person might find her very attractive."
Hmm... who could this mystery person be?!
Season six of Pretty Little Liars premieres Tuesday, June 2 at 8 p.m. on ABC Family.
