Pretty Little Liars is over now but there are still many unanswered questions and moments fans return to, wondering how it even happened. The show is filled with skilled manipulators and liars. One of the most skilled would have to be Aria Montgomery. She lied about being unfaithful, secret romances, ed the A-team and did some blackmailing of her own. Whether it was the writers making an odd choice about where to take her epic romance with ex-teacher, now husband Ezra Fitz, or a hypocritical decision or simply her lack of resolve in certain matters, there are times when this fan-favorite appears to not make any sense to the audience.
This makes her one of the most dramatic and deliciously complicated characters of the show. Given her prior experiences it should be no surprise that at least one of the Liars decided to get some self-defense under their belt. Aria finally got herself some lessons at the beginning of season 4 under the instruction of Jake, who she started dating, seemingly ending her martial arts career.
By season 4 Aria had been blackmailed, drugged, attacked, even locked in a box with a body about to be pushed out of a train. Mid-college application panic Aria discovers that she has sent in an application to a college that has Jackie on the admissions board. Despite the warnings from Emily, Aria wrote and sent in a scathing letter to Jackie about Ezra robbing her of her high-school experience. Aria finds out that Holden is seriously into Tang Soo Do a Korean martial art , competing in tournaments and training. On its own, no problem.
Since the doctor decided not to operate the AAA is likely to be small and at low risk of rupture. Finally, these two are out in the open and taking this job would effectively nuke their relationship, yet Aria gives him the go ahead. Given the ramifications of teacher-student relationships and the ever-constant threat of A, throwing Ezra back into the frying pan is a huge risk.
While in Radley, Mona tells her that Toby is still alive. Desperate, she s the team and takes Malcolm, leaving him at the carnival for a panicked Aria to find. When Spencer reveals her identity by sending Hanna a photo for Malcolm to identify her, the secret is out. Ironically, when the situation is reversed years later Spencer does not show Aria the same immediate forgiveness. After Mona and Mike meet in a counseling discussion group they both find they have a lot in common and begin a romantic relationship.
Mona steadily earns forgiveness from the Liars across the seasons, but clearly being this close makes Aria deeply uncomfortable. Over the seasons it is no secret that Aria has an unfortunate habit of kissing all the wrong people. Aria had been missing Ezra and clearly, Wesley had a lot in common with both Ezra and Aria. The two got on well and Wesley became a reminder of Ezra and the easier moments before the Malcolm bomb dropped.
Whilst Wesley definitely initiated the kiss, Aria still went along with it for a moment before realizing exactly what she was doing and the consequences if she continued. Jason ends up being innocent of some of the things her friends accuse but even beginning this strange dynamic, which ended up leading to a kiss, while she was still with Ezra was self-destructive and uncharacteristic for someone so untrusting.
In fact, discovering this outside romantic threat is exactly what prompted Ezra to reveal his relationship with Aria to her parents. Naturally, this did not go as hoped, further divided her parents and sneaking around once again. Clearly, her feelings for Ezra were as strong as ever, and the fantasy of popular guy Noel that Aria had at the age of fifteen, was clearly not everything she dreamed.
Aria was already beyond her years and just experienced a mature, like-minded relationship. To then back-peddle into something that made her visibly unhappy was simply frustrating. She clearly still had feelings and the relationship had no clear ending, simply changing when Aria forgave Ezra who was then blackmailed by Noel.
This revealed his rather slimy characteristics and made him the new suspect one for the role of A. Aria has a single session with Jake, only a little while after her separation from Ezra and kisses him in the middle of her very first defense class. It seemed like Aria might have needed some single-time this season, but she traded up to instantly begin a new romantic entanglement.
This was once again a short on-off romance but often there was simply no shared interest. Eventually, the chemistry that fuelled the relationship was over-shadowed by her romance with Ezra and the relationship ended when she chose Ezra. Let alone the drama with Zach while he was engaged to Ella Montgomery. Aria is definitely aware that her interactions with Ezra so far have been hurting Liam. Not coming forward about crimes has almost ruined the Liars multiple times, and they even devise a plan to tell the police about Shana and eventually confesses to Ezra. It was clear self-defense but she said nothing.
This could potentially be the next blackmail arranged by A and could be much worse if she doesn't turn herself in and explain the situation. Surprisingly the police did not connect the girls to the crime. Aria and all the Liars have been falsely accused and framed multiple times. Lying has become natural to Aria, that much is clear, but a lie like this has consequences for her, for the case and for someone innocent. Still, she owned up and recanted her statement, facing her mistake. Aria is not the first Liar to trade up for the A-team in desperation for a loved one, but she had no plan to tell the girls, unlike Spencer.
It was a desperate situation and Aria, with everything on the line did what she thought she had to. This event was a catalyst to their break-up and Ezra changing his entire plan. Changing his last name to Fitz and changing his college plan to Hollis. Needing to find out more Aria snooped, stalked and met with the ex.
In desperation to hear a different answer, she seeks multiple opinions before telling Ezra. While others would likely do the same, this couple has weathered storms that would break pretty much anyone else. Of all the secrets to keep, this is probably her biggest. This is completely shattered when she sees her father having a relationship with his college student, Meredith. Her father asks her to keep this private and, to keep the family together, she agrees.
This is a huge breach of trust for her mother and leaves the mess even bigger than it would have been had Aria or her father came clean. After her father had a relationship with a student himself, Aria got into her own teacher-student relationship. Ezra initially tried to stop the relationship once he realized his error but Aria pushed forward with her feelings until she eventually succeeded and the two began their forbidden relationship. Aria is a highly intelligent person and pursuing those feelings given the stakes seems unlikely. It is revealed he knew who she was when they started dating, approaching her, knowing she was under-age and having ly dated Alison.
Aside from being way out of character for Ezra, Aria actually takes Ezra back. Realistically, jumping in front of a bullet or not, no one would ever step back into a relationship built on that much betrayal. Is there anything else about Aria from Pretty Little Liars that doesn't make sense?
