“It’s not the end of the Fitz and Montgomery relationship,” Hale assures us. “There’s a little question about where he’s gone, is he gone for good? Because in the books he goes away and when he goes away, he goes away for good … but it’s not the end of it.”
It’s good to hear that Mr. Fitz will be back because Aria’s home life isn’t getting an easier.
“[The Montgomery family] is pretty much broken at this point … Everyone expected my dad to leave, but my mom goes away,” Hale says. “I’m trying to spend time with my dad, with my mom and take care of my brother and try to keep a sane head for myself.”
But the Tuesday (July 27) episode of “Liars” is not focusing much on Mr. Fitz or the Montgomery family. Instead, Alison’s memorial is front and center — and the introduction of Ali’s brother Jason (Parker Bagley).
“It’s supposed to be a happy day, remembering our memories and remembering her,” says Hale. “But her brother comes and is a completely different person from what we remember him as … He takes the whole memorial by the reins. There’s a lot of great stuff between him and Spencer (Troian Bellisario) that is sort-of a little questionable.”
Hale also teases the return of Officer Wilden (Bryce Johnson), who is giving hard looks at the girls, “especially Emily.” “He doesn’t let us get off very easily. He’s back with a force,” Hale tells us.
And in response to fan Biankha‘s question, Hale says her favorite episode is “the Homecoming episode.”
“I loved the outfits and I loved the set. We don’t always get to come together, the whole cast, because we have our own separate storylines,” Hale explains. “In this one, literally probably every character was in that episode so that was really fun for me.”
“Pretty Little Liars” airs Tuesday nights at 8 p.m. ET on ABC Family.
