As Pretty Little Liars fans prepare to bid farewell to the series, it appears Marlene King has a few more surprises up her sleeve. Just three weeks before the show's return, Freeform has released new photos from the spring premiere, and they include a face the Liars haven’t seen in a while.
In the first of the show’s final 10 episodes, fans will witness Aria’s reunion with her long lost friend Holden Strauss.
When we last saw Holden in Season 3, he was risking his life (and defying his parents’ wishes) to compete in Korean martial arts. Ugh, teenagers. We can only assume that he's matured since then—I mean, look at that jawline.
Aside from showing us Holden’s matured face, one photo shows Ezra greeting Aria with a kiss on the cheek as Holden stands uncomfortably by her side. Aria's one-time fake boyfriend meets her fiancé who used to be her English teacher? Talk about awkward.
Holden has a lot of catching up and even more explaining to do. Knowing that this is just the first of many throwback cameos taking place in the series' last episodes, we can't wait for “Playtime,” airing Tuesday, April 18 at 8/7c on Freeform!
