You cannot contain the hotness of Mike Montgomery! He’s also looking hunky in this promo photo from what looks like the same scene. In it, he appears to be brushing off older sister Aria — something he’s always done and that often endears us to his character. He’s one of the only characters who calls Aria out on her self-indulgence, and it’s kind of awesome. Basically, he’s the Jeremy Gilbert of this show. (That was a Vampire Diaries reference.)
There’s no doubting that Mike’s hotness is on the rise — but we think it may have as much to do with some of his character’s emotional moment as his finely-tuned physique. (OK, maybe like 75 percent finely-tuned physique, 25 percent character moments.) He pretty much stole the midseason premiere with his breakdown about Mona — how no one really knew her, how she was not nice, but clever and how there will never be anyone else like her. He had Aria and us crying. In conclusion, we’re glad to know that Mike will be showing his handsome face (and killer bod) more this season.
