After living in Iceland in the year following her friend's disappearance, Aria Montgomery returned to Rosewood in the series premiere.
She's no longer tight with her old friends, but A's mysterious messages bring them together again. Aria's family also has many secrets of its own, as she's close to her mother, but her father had an affair that Aria knows all about.
Within the first few minutes of viewers meeting Aria, she's making out with an older man that turns out to be her high school teacher. Nice!
Aria: What do we do know? We just wait until A paints the town red in our DNA?
Hanna: One drop here, one spot there, and kaboom; we're all sharing a jail cell with Ali.
Spencer: You are like the queen of not helping!
We're your friends; we're not your punching bags.Aria(to Spencer)
