Can we talk about how alike Spencer and Ezra are in every aspect of life?
1.) They come from totally messed up families. Ezra can completely understand Spencer’s hardships as her parents divorce because his parents separated badly, too. (Once upon a long time ago he helped Aria a bit through the same thing.) Plus, like how Spencer’s parents ignored her a lot because she was a shadow to Melissa’s achievements, it seems like Ezra’s parents didn’t really know how to love him either, only pushing him towards living the Upper East Side society life even though he wanted something simpler. (And you know you have a bad relationship with your family when you practically disown them.)
2.) Speaking of Aria, they both love her unconditionally and want to protect her from all the harms in life. (Spencer always wants to make Aria feel better and has especially been wanting to protect her from heartbreak lately, and Ezra went overboard trying to find out who A is to put an end to it all.) Seriously, I’m waiting for them to get in a fight over one person spending more time with Aria than the other. These two would kick butt for Aria (remember 2x10 when Spencer barged into Ezra’s car to gather help for Aria, in which Ezra raced to Jason’s house?), which means Spezria.
3.) They both have obsessive personalities to find out the truth. From Ezra’s spyware to find out A and Spencer just hunting down all of her A suspects, these two would be a great, slightly intimidating team.
4.) They’re both smart. (Except for their multiple stupid mistakes, but those just bring them closer.)
5.) CAN WE JUST TAKE A MOMENT AND NOTICE HOW EZRA OPENED UP TO SPENCER ABOUT HIS SCREWED UP FAMILY AND SPENCER TOLD HIM ABOUT HER SISTER LIKE THAT IS SOME MAJOR TRUST RIGHT THERE. IF I WAS IN THAT SITUATION I WOULDN’T EVEN EXPLAIN WHY I WANTED THE CAMERAS BUT SPENCER DID. Plus, remember how Ezra was the first person Spencer told about UPenn? Well, Spencer was the first person Ezra told about his original intentions behind writing. TRUE. FRIENDSHIP.
Basically Spencer and Ezra are like twins, except they’re actually BFFS with similar personalities that make them connect on a personal level, who trust each other and can find comfort in each other and share an undying love for Aria which makes great Spezria. Seriously, more scenes with these two, please, specifically of them being detectives. And while you’re at it, some Spezria, too.
(Also, I just really want Spencer to mention the slip in front of Ezra. Because they really did talk about Aria but Spencer chose not to embarrass him.)
