At this point, it’s really hard to be altogether surprised that there are relationship troubles between characters on “Pretty Little Liars.” Ultimately, these are as common as the sky being blue or grass being green. Even when you think that characters are going to start enjoying their time together without any problems, something comes up that really puts a rupture into everything.
Ultimately, we are going to see one of these potential ruptures coming between Aria and Ezra on “The Bin of Sin,” the upcoming 17th episode of the series that is taking place on Tuesday, January 17. The name itself is certainly creepy, and the synopsis below suggests that Lucy Hale’s character could be the one causing some damage to her relationship in the form of a secret:
“Suspecting that Alison/”A” is out to frame her for Mona’s murder, Hanna is not willing to just sit by and let it happen. When Caleb and her friends try to come up with a safe plan to get Hanna off the hook, it isn’t good enough for her. Taking her fate into her own hands, Hanna strikes out alone to clear her name … Meanwhile, relationships are tested when Aria comes clean to Ezra and Spencer’s shady actions continue to put Toby in a bind at work.”
One thing that is probably important to point out here about this synopsis is that we don’t feel like the show is necessarily trying to directly insinuate that Ali is “A” based on this synopsis. This is supposed to be slanted more from the perspective of the Liars than us as viewers. Their actions are in part dictated by their feelings about Sasha Pieterse’s character … who may be out of prison by the time this episode airs. How terrible are these police as suspects? Even in trying to make them smarter, it still has not worked.
