holly marie combs chad lowe lucy hale 'Pretty Little Liars': Ella dating, making out with Byron?In the first half of “Pretty Little Liars” first season, we saw Ella (Holly Marie Combs) and Byron Montgomery (Chad Lowe) split apart because of Byron’s infidelity. When the show returns, a reconciliation may be in the cards — but not before Ella has some fun of her own.

“She was definitely playing the field a little bit,” Lucy Hale, Ella’s on-screen daughter, reveals to Zap2it. “Younger guys, it was really weird for Aria. Lots of awkwardness.”

“I think Byron and Ella are still kind of working out their stuff, they haven’t quite decided what to do yet,” Combs says, “It’s a work in progress.”

Part of that progress is, apparently, some displays of affection.

“In the episodes we’re doing now, they’re working very hard to patch things up. And there may or may not be a little making out involved,” teases Lowe.

“There may or may not be a little making out later today … on the set, that is! On the set!” Lowe laughs. The episode the show is currently shooting is episode 15 (the fifth one back after the hiatus), titled “If At First You Don’t Succeed, Lie, Lie, Again.”

“Byron’s working very hard to try to rebuild his family. He’s doing his very best to make amends for the mistakes he made,” Lowe continues. “He does have a good heart and he’s doing the very best he can to repair and make amends for the severe mistake he made.”

What do you think, “Liars” fans? Do you want to see Ella and Byron work things out? “Pretty Little Liars” returns Jan. 3, 2011 on ABC Family.
