At the end of the most recent episode of Pretty Little Liars (Season 4, Episode 21 — “She’s Come Undone”), Aria left Rosewood in a blaze of tears, but where did she go? In this sneak peek from next week’s episode (Season 4 Episode 22 — “Cover For Me”), it looks like Aria is passing the time up in Syracuse University… with another boy.

The sneak peek offers the first look at Riley (guest star Nick Roux), an aspiring musician who Aria meets at her university visit, and he’s putting the moves on Aria already. In fact, he’s already got Aria playing hookie on her college visit. Who needs a university tour when there’s a super cute musician who wants to take you to get pancakes? We can’t think of a better way to nurse a hangover, Aria!

Seeing as Aria’s true love just confessed to exploiting her and her friends for the sake of his book, we think she’s allowed to see other guys. Plus, Riley is the artsy type — and more importantly, he’s her age!

Watch the sneak peek below and hit the comments with your reactions!
