Like most ‘Pretty Little Liars’ fans, I still don’t know how I feel about the summer finale’s big reveAl.
Ezra is now EzrA?! He’s the one pulling all the strings? Who framed Hanna’s mom for murder?!
Welcome to deniAl. DeniAl is defined as how one copes with the possibility of Ezra being ‘A’ and has 9 stages culminating in AcceptAnce.
Stage 3: DISBELIEF.
I tried re-watching those last few moments over and over, each time hoping that my eyes were playing tricks on me. Poor, sweet, sometimes bland, English teacher Ezra can’t be ‘A,’ he just can’t be! He wears VESTS for goodness sake!
Stage 6: CARDIO. (This involved a very exhausting effort to run away from what I had just seen.)
Maybe, if I run fast enough, time will go backwards and I can just pretend I never saw Ezra in ‘A”s lair.
After repeating the stages of deniAl multiple times, there is even more denial in the form of…
Stage 9: AcceptAnce.
LOOK. AT. THIS. FACE.
How could this face be evil? How could the romance of Ezria become so tainted?
And so, deniAl must become AcceptAnce. Ezra may (or may not – I still have hope) be evil with a capital ‘A,’ but he’s still got the face. (Thank you, Ian Harding, for your beautiful face.) I choose to be both horrified and smitten.
