Biography

Ezra Fitz, born as Ezra Fitzgerald, comes from an extremely wealthy family from which he is almost entirely estranged, having both rejected his existing and future inheritance, and changed his last name from Fitzgerald to Fitz. In the summer after high school graduation, he had a girlfriend named Maggie who got pregnant, but his mother paid Maggie to leave town and have an abortion. She had the baby which Ezra believed was his son, Malcolm and Ezra didn't find out about it until the child was 7 years old. Due to a DNA test Ezra finds out that Malcolm is not his child, and that Maggie lied to him about his paternity.

He is well liked by his fellow faculty members and by his students, especially Aria Montgomery, whom he has a romantic relationship with. He resigned from Rosewood High to avoid being arrested for dating his student, and was teaching at Hollis, until Byron Montgomery got him fired after finding out his daughter was with him. He then became a substitute teacher at Rosewood High school, then became a full-time teacher again. Aria regretfully ended their relationship because it was becoming too complicated.

In season 4, Aria and Ezra get back together while Aria was still dating Jake. Aria tells Ezra he's "the one" and always has been and breaks up with Jake. She's not ready to tell her friends yet, so they keep it a secret, only for the girls to spy them together at the end of Shadow Play. It was revealed in "Free Fall" that he had a brief relationship with Alison DiLaurentis and has been tracking her and The Liars in order to write a "true crime novel" and figure out who 'A' is. A heartbroken Aria then cuts all ties with him, despite Ezra's protests that he loves her.

In A is for Answers, Ezra gets non-fatally shot in New York by someone dressed as 'A', is later revealed to be Shana. After Erza recovers, Aria finaly realizes from Ezra's heroism that he does love her and they make up. In Welcome to the Dollhouse Ezra helps Caleb and Toby attempt to track down the liars after they are kidnapped by A while being escorted to prison, and successfully rescue them.

In Season 7, Ezra reunites with Aria after the time jump. Their reunion is halted when Ezra is suspected by the Liars of being Charlotte's Killer, but are eventually convinced he is innocent. Afterwards, Ezra decides to propose to Aria, who accepts. However, their relationship is strained again when Ezra's old girlfriend, Nicole Gordon, returns and Ezra pays attention to her. After some arguments, Ezra agrees to leave Nicole behind and resumes focusing on planning his wedding with Aria.

Meet the Parents

Ella Montgomery met Ezra early on in the series, when they run into each other at the movies. She takes a liking to him right away, noting how "young" and "handsome" he is. The two become colleagues and friends when Ella starts working at Rosewood High, meeting for the second time in a supply closet during a severe storm. She tries to set him up with Aria's old babysitter, Simone, and later, they go to a book signing together (along with other faculty members). Byron worries there is something going on between them, but it's all in his head. Byron first meets Ezra during student-teacher conferences. Their first encounter was not what Ezra hoped it would be. Instead, Byron grills him about his taste in literature and awkwardly marks his territory when it comes to his wife. When Aria tells him he's misread the situation, Byron invites Ezra out for a drink. They go, and get along fine, though it's quite awkward, and makes Ezra think hard about his future with Aria. Byron mentions that teaching at the college level would allow Ezra more time for his writing. He later helps Ezra get a job at Hollis College and invites him to the Montgomery home for a faculty mixer.During the second season, Ezra continues to have contact with Aria's parents. He is invited to an intimate dinner party at their home along with Mr. and Mrs. Partha and Jason DiLaurentis. Later, Ella spots him with Spencer Hastings in his car and gets the wrong impression. When Ezra shows up to the police station at Aria's request, Ella stops him, giving him the chance to walk away. He says he's in love with "her," which Ella takes to mean Spencer.

After the mid-season hiatus, Byron visits Ezra in his office. They are friendly and make plans to combine their classes and have dinner and drinks. Ezra sympathizes with Byron having to deal with all the issues that arose following Aria's arrest. The next day, Ezra stands in the Montgomery's living room and confesses his love for their daughter. They are shocked to learn exactly how long their relationship has been going on and are clearly angry. Byron confronts Ezra in his apartment the next day without Ella's knowledge. What starts out as a business-like conversation turns angry and defensive and ends with Byron threatening to call the police. When they see Ezra dining alone at a restaurant in town, the Montgomery family finds someplace else to eat.

In order to prevent Ezra from ever seeing Aria again, Byron recommends him for a job in New Orleans. When Ella gets wind of this, she heads over to Ezra's apartment, to find him and Aria eating dinner and discussing their future. She agrees to listen to what they have to say and try to understand their relationship. However, despite her supposed open-mindedness, Ella goes to Ezra's office to tell him she is not an ally in this situation. Byron also pays Ezra a visit, at Ezra's behest, hoping he has chosen to take the position, but Ezra assertively informs him he won't be going anywhere, leaving Byron at a loss for words.

Quotes

Ezra: Holy crap.

Ezra: Mr. Sperling. Do you have something to add to the conversation, aside from phlegm?

Ezra: You're lucky—my cooking's always better the next day! I make really good leftovers.
[Aria laughs]
Ezra: Don't laugh. No, seriously—the pesto will get up your nose, we'll need the Jaws of Life in here.

Ezra [to Aria]: If A knows, I'm thinking B and C and everybody else knows.

Ezra [to Aria, about Noel]: Even though this doesn't look right, it has always felt right. And I will not let him change this into something that feels wrong.

Ezra [to Aria]: Here I was hoping you'd be at the potter's wheel, so I could wrap my arms around you and hum "Unchained Melody."

Ezra [to Ella and Byron]: I'm in love with your daughter. I love Aria.

Ezra: Life isn't always romantic. Sometimes, it's realistic.

Aria: French food? Wow, you must really like me.
Ezra: Aria, it's French, vegan food. I must really love you.

Ezra [to Aria]: This is our first dance. I want to see you.

Ezra [to his mother]: It’s astounding that you can do things like this and still not understand why I want nothing to do with this family.
