EXCLUSIVE: Lucy Hale Teases 'Dark Path' for Aria in Final 'Pretty Little Liars' Episodes

By
Will or won’t we get an Ezria wedding during the final nine episodes of Pretty Little Liars?!
It definitely seems like Aria and Ezra are still on track to say "I do"– but Lucy Hale tells ET there are dark days ahead for Miss Aria.
“She might get her happy ending but Aria definitely has quite a dark path to do down in these last ten episodes,” the 27-year-old teased at at Freeform’s 2017 upfront presentation in New York on Wednesday.
And get this -- that was Lucy’s idea!
“It was like the first time I went to the writers and was like ‘please give Aria something cool to end with’ and they listened,” she explained. “I got to do things I’ve never done before on this show and not only that but things that I’ve never done before in acting period.”
“You’ll see what I’m talking about in a couple episodes but it was very fun, so, I felt very satisfied when we finished with my character,” added Hale.
But if you’re thinking this means trouble Ezria -- think again. Hale was quick to add, “And then, yeah there is a happy ending.”
As for the highly-anticipated A.D. reveal – Hale is certain viewers will get the answers they want.
“It’s good, I think everyone is going to like it,” she teased. “We’ve had such an amazing run, like, let’s go out with a bang!”
Pretty Little Liars airs Tuesdays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on Freeform.
Keegan Allen also dropped some hints about A.D.’s identity to ET this week. Check out the video below to see what he said about the show’s “crazy” ending and if 'Spoby' will ever smooch again.
