The Pretty Little Liars winter premiere is coming to Freeform on April 18, but for the sake of this article, we’re talking specifically Holden’s return.
Remember Holden? It’s understandable if it takes a moment or two for the name to ring a bell, largely because it’s been so long since you had a chance to see the character turn up on the show. He’s someone who did have a close bond to Aria, and he was valuable for a time in her working to keep her relationship with Ezra a secret for as long as humanly possible.
Interestingly, his return in the upcoming April 25 episode is going to revolve around her relationship with Ezra once more … but in a completely different way. The synopsis below for the hour offers up a few clues on what’s coming:
“Emily butts heads with teenager Addison, who appears to be a new version of high school Ali, and who may be connected to a familiar foe. Spencer confronts her mother about keeping family secrets. Aria confides in Holden about her relationship with Ezra, while Spencer turns to Detective Furey for help. And Jenna stirs up even more trouble when she returns to Rosewood with some insight into Noel Kahn and recent events.”
Seeing Holden’s return at this point is mostly a nice little way for the show to go even more full-circle, since you are bringing back a character who was previously important to the show. That’s why it’s also nice to see Jenna once more, even if she’s far from a benevolent character. We’re still someone what spinning mentally, meanwhile, at the mere mention of one Noel Kahn given what sort of role that he had the last time he turned up on the show. Let’s just say that heads rolled … a little cheesy? Probably, but we’re going with it anyway because it’s funny. This show does inspire that sort of stuff.
Beyond all of this, the biggest thing that you should take away from this synopsis is Spencer confronting her mother, especially given some of what she knows now about her actual family history, and what was kept from her for the longest time.
