After putting her foot down about Caleb (recurring guest star TYLER BLACKBURN) with her friends, Hanna begins to feel that she is getting the cold shoulder from them. Aria, Emily and Spencer seem to be up to something, but she can't quite seem to figure out what it is. But what Hanna may take as the cold shoulder, could really be just a case of guilty consciences from her friends. And if her best friends avoiding her weren't enough, Kate's (recurring guest star NATALIE HALL, All My Children) first day at Rosewood High is looming. Now that her evil stepsister is invading Hanna's space, she needs her friends more than ever. Meanwhile, Emily hopes that her mother's visit to Rosewood will be a good opportunity to re-introduce her to Maya (recurring guest star BIANCA LAWSON) and have a better outcome this time.
