When it comes to Pretty Little Liars' relationships, love is always a whirlwind just short of a tornado. Who is breaking up and who is staying together in Season 5?
Wednesday's Wetpaint had the latest scoop: Spencer (Troian Bellisario and Toby (Keegan Allen), a.k.a. "Spoby," are rumored to still be together in Season 5. According to a behind-the-scenes Instagram video of the couple snuggling in bed together, it seems like they may last a few rounds.
Still, their relationship could be fragile based on what Bellisario admitted:
"I think Spencer's never far from the dark side, and I think her whole character is based on a lot of fragility and darkness and I think that no matter what happens to her, she'll always carry that."
As for Paige (Lindsey Shaw) and Emily (Shay Mitchell), aka "Paily," that relationship seemed to have kicked the bucket. Paige betrayed Emily when she tipped off the police about Ali's whereabouts. And with Ali (Sasha Pieterse) returning, from the dead - that's sure to set off some sparks.
Says PLL writer Joseph Dougherty:
"I think Paige is threatened. She's taken actions which in the writer's room, I agree with, and everyone thinks that I'm cranking," he told Alloy Entertainment.
Mitchell gave a glimmer of hope though: "For the Paige and Emily fans, I would say to hold tight. Nothing's ever said and done."
Moving on to "Haleb," Caleb (Tyler Blackburn) and Hanna (Ashley Benson). Well, first thing to know is that Caleb returns in Season 5 from his spin-off Ravenswood. Executive Producer Oliver Goldstick teases in The Hollywood Reporter on March 12 that, "it's a lovely reunion." Well, that's pretty vague considering that Hanna is now involved with Travis and Detective Holbrok. So, what gives?
As for Ezra (Ian Harding) and Aria (Lucy Hale) or "Ezria," they might not be all sunshine and rainbows now... but, there is a silver lining. Ezra did take a bullet for the liars in the Season 4 finale. Trust has to be rebuilt but Harding thinks there's a chance:
The actor revealed E! Online on March 25: "They're going to have to clearly like regain trust, but I don't think it's the end. Emphasis on 'think,'" Harding said. "I think the love that they have is just so insanely strong, and it's why such a cerebral, intellectual guy as Ezra decided to say, 'No, screw you law enforcement, I'm gonna go for this.' I don't think that can just simply end because I think Ezra is a good person. He's just driven by this obsession."
As for "Emison," aka Emily and Alison, who knows? Dougherty calls the Paige / Emily / Ali dynamic "arguably ... the most interesting triangle of the season."
Finally "Mina" aka Mona (Janel Parrish) and Mike (Cody Allen Christian), was a sweet romantic surprise! That is until Mona broke it off. Who knows what Season 5 will hold?
There have heard rumors from PLL writer Bryan Holdman tweeting that someone's getting a hungry, desperate kiss?!?!
And speaking of romances, what about this real life bromance?
