'Pretty Little Liars' Star Ian Harding Teases Summer Finale Cliffhanger

How about a little "Pretty Little Liars"-related eye candy to get your day started off on the right track? Ian Harding has us covered, thanks to a recent conversation we had with the crushworthy gentleman during which he delighted us with info about the summer finale teasery and on-set antics.

"There's going to be some nutty secrets on the show," Ian said. "At first I found out that something happened and I thought, 'Oh, that's cool.' But then something immediately happens after and you go, 'Ohhh, wow. That's something real.' Things just got real, the ante has been upped."

We then told him that if he's saying the ante has been upped, for a show that's already cray-cray and full of drama all the time, that's sayin' something for the upcoming finale.

"Truly. Especially for the relationship that's already taboo. It's going to be a little bit more colorful," he said.

Speaking of taboo, Ian's co-star Lucy Hale recently revealed to us that her onscreen boyfriend and her onscreen mother (played by Holly Marie Combs) share in some overly flirty exchanges during table reads, a fact that we had to ask Ian to confirm or deny.

"Oh, nice. Overly flirtatious as in incredibly mean to each other, I suppose that's flirtation," he said. "Like outright verbal violence, yeah sure, I guess that's the case. We like jabbing at each other. I'll make a joke like 'Oh, are you going to curse me now?' because she did 'Charmed' for so many years and then she'll call me a child because I'm very new to this industry, so yeah."

When asked about the likelihood that we'll be seeing yet another cliffhanger on the upcoming summer finale, Ian said the odds are in our favor.

"Probably," he said. "Naturally, it would really be terrible if we were like, 'Oh everything is neat and tidy,' or 'This relationship is really cool,' that would be boring."

Finally we asked Ian to reveal which characters' storylines he most enjoys watching outside of his own, which had mixed results in revealing pure enjoyment and pure mischief on Ian's part.

"I hate watching myself so that's not a hard feat to undo. I really love watching Keegan [Allen], and I love the whole Troian [Bellisario]/ Keegan thing," he said. "I love making fun of Shay [Mitchell] as much as humanly possible. Shay and Paige's scenes are fantastic. Like I try to be on set for those even though I'm not called."

What do you think is in store for the liars in the upcoming finale?
