I can't imagine that there's anyone better than you.
Jason to Aria in "The Wrath of Kahn"


Jaria is the couple and friendship name for the short-lived romantic relationship and current friendship between Jason DiLaurentis and Aria Montgomery. In the earlier seasons, Aria was in a romantic relationship with Ezra Fitz, but Jason continued to pursue her unaware of this fact. They also had chemistry between them, especially on Jason's part.

Relationship

Their relationship was obscure throughout Season 1, however, shortly after Jason returned to Rosewood in Season 2, he began flirting with Aria. Later on in the series, Jason started to treat Aria as a confidante as well. He also stuck up for her when Noel attempted to intimidate her. Some time later, he tried to kiss her, but she stopped him and admitted that she was not available. When Ezra found out about their kiss, he asked Aria to keep a distance with Jason because he was afraid of losing her, so their relationship was cold for a while.

In Season 5, Aria and Jason seem to be close again and they have a conversation about Alison at the Apple Rose Grille. In the following seasons Aria seems to worry about Jason, and she feels very powerless seeing Jason unconscious because of being drugged by Charlotte. In the time jump, the two had both a fling and a minor relationship, which ended since Aria wanted to pursue her career in the city, and Jason wanted to travel the world. Despite that, they remained friends, counting on each other when they needed help.

While making casual conversation with Ezra, Jason asks if Ezra had Aria... as a student, and Ezra eventually stammers a yes.

  • Jason confessed to Aria in "Blind Dates" that he greatly admired that she dared to be different and did what no one expected her to do, since he was the opposite.

  • Jason stuck up for Aria when Noel attempted to intimidate her in "Never Letting Go".
  • Aria had two dreams about Jason in "Picture This" and at the end of the episode, the two had their first kiss together.
  • In "Touched by an 'A'-ngel", Emily reveals to Aria that Jason took pictures of her sleeping. Jason denies it and says that Alison took them, and since Aria thinks it's true he says the same to Ezra when he worries because he thinks Jason is a danger to her, and Ezra apparently thinks Aria is right about him.
    • However, in Season 4 we can see that one of Ezra's notes about Alison's book says "Aria recently learned that Jason was taking voyeuristic pictures of her", which could mean that Ezra thinks that he did take them.
  • Aria and Jason meet for the first time after the time jump in "Original G'A'ngsters", when he returned from a charity trip to Ethiopia and asked Aria for help with Alison and Mary.
  • Jason and Aria were in a romantic relationship during the time jump.

    • We found out through a flashback in "The Wrath of Kahn" that the relationship happened a year before Season 6B when Aria had just graduated (or was about to graduate) and Jason had just returned from a trip to Ethiopia and was doing a training program.

    • In another flashback of "The Wrath of Kahn", we discover that Jason and Aria broke up because he offered Aria to go to Ethiopia with him but that same day she accepted a job offer from the company with which Ezra was associated with the intention of cross paths with him again.
      • Although in the last flashback it is implied that Jason and Aria ended up on bad terms, we can assume that they later fixed their problems since when they met in "Original G'A'ngsters" we can appreciate that Jason and Aria maintained their friendship.
      • In "Charlotte's Web", when the girls point out that Aria should stay in Rosewood while Charlotte's case is solved, she says that "This wasn't an easy job to get, I can't lose it" which could be a reference to Aria having to lose Jason to get the job.
    • We can assume they both kept in touch after breaking up, because in "Original G'A'ngsters", when Jason and Aria met again, he knew that she had been in a relationship with Liam and he assumed he was her fiancé.
  • In Season 7, Jason and Aria treat each other like good friends and count on each other when they need help. A clear example is when in "Original G'A'ngsters" Jason asks Aria for help to take care of Alison and in "The Wrath of Kahn" when Aria asks Jason for help to go to the courthouse and ask for the reports of Mary's second daughter.
  • They were mistaken for, and later pretended to be, fiancés in "The Wrath of Kahn".

Jason{In another one of Aria's dreams}: Where were we?


Jason: The truth is I do care about your brother but I also care about you. And I wanted to tell you in the off-chance that you might feel the same way.
(He leans down to her and they kiss)


Aria: Thank you for not calling the Police.
Jason: Don't worry about it.


Jason: Look, I said some things after the funeral that I probably should have kept to myself.
Aria: I thought that you'd felt better knowing that...
Jason: So did I, but I don't want people getting the wrong idea, you know?
Aria: I won't say a word, and plus the way you handled things with my brother, I kinda owe you one.


Jason: Look, from now on I need to figure out how to be happy and I'd like to do that here. Um... can I drop you somewhere?
Aria: Yeah, I could use the ride.


Aria (About Jason): I'm just trying to be civil Spence, he lost his sister. Who knows what he is thinking.
Spencer: Well, apparently you do.


Aria (After Jason falls down an elevator in What Becomes of the Broken-Hearted): Is Jason okay?


Jason: You look great.


Aria: You haven't... Told anyone about us... Have you?
Jason: No.
Aria: I haven't told Ali or Ezra or anyone.
Jason: Then let's keep it our secret.


Clerk: You are lucky to have a fiancé who cares so much.
Jason (pretending to be Aria's fiancé in "The Wrath of Kahn"): Yeah, she is really special.


Jason: I can't imagine that there's anyone better than you.
