Nicole Wasn't The Only Ex Of Ezra's To Threaten His Relationship With Aria...
Hands up if you remember Jackie!
We first learned of Jackie when Aria found a photo of her and Ezra together in Season 2.
We were totally shocked to see Jackie wearing an engagement ring and we couldn't believe that Ezra hadn't mentioned her to Aria before!
Later on, Aria confronted Ezra and we learned that they had been engaged, but that Jackie had called it off!
Ezra assured Aria that she was his present and that what had happened with Jackie was a long time ago.
We thought that was the end of it, but Jackie made a return in Season 2 when she started teaching at Hollis.
We weren't exactly overjoyed to see her...
One day on campus, Jackie saw Ezra and Aria share a kiss.
And she did NOT look happy about it!
And then in Touched By An 'A'-ngel, Aria saw Ezra and Jackie acting all flirty together.
Which she wasn't pleased about (and neither were we to be honest)!
When Ezra came over to Aria afterwards, she couldn't help but act cold towards him.
She was totally in the right!
So then Ezra tried to assure Aria that Jackie wasn't a threat...
But Aria told Ezra that Jackie was so obviously interested in him and that he wouldn't know a threat if "it sat in his lap and made him a gin and tonic."
Best. Line. Ever.
Ezra tried to tell Aria that even if Jackie did have feelings for him, he didn't have feelings for her...
But THEN Jackie interrupted and asked Ezra if he would get her something.
Once Ezra had left, Jackie told Aria that college would be a good experience for her as it would really help her "grow"...
And that one day, Aria would look back and realize just how naive she was. UGH.
Aria was NOT amused.
And neither were we.
In Over My Dead Body, Aria went to meet Ezra at Hollis with some coffee...
But found that Jackie had already beaten her to it!
She overheard Jackie hitting on Ezra.
And even though Ezra told Jackie that he was seeing someone, he never actually said that he wouldn't want to be with Jackie if he was single.
Later, 'A' showed Aria that Jackie had plagiarized the paper that she was writing.
And 'A' forced Aria to use it to get Jackie to leave Hollis!
And even though Aria hated Jackie, she hated having to blackmail her!
But Jackie was not an easy person to blackmail!
After she got over her initial shock, she went to Aria's house and told Aria that if she ever told anyone about her paper, she would make Ezria's relationship known to the public, which resulted in Aria breaking up with Ezra!!
Later on in the season, Jackie found Aria in Ezra's office and so she asked her if she had forgotten about their deal.
And as Aria was trying to tell Jackie that she and Ezra had broken up, Ezra walked in!
Once Jackie had left, Aria told Ezra that the only reason she had broken up with him was because Jackie had forced her to do it.
So the next time Jackie tried to talk to Ezra, he told her to get out of his office and to never try to hurt Aria again.
Did Jackie annoy you as much as she annoyed us?
