— Andrew to The Liars
Andrew makes his first appearance in this episode as he sits with Spencer and other Decathlon members, where he informs them that Mona will be a new member. When Mona joins them, she informs them that she is running for team captain against Spencer. The Decathlon team votes (Andrew votes for Spencer) and it ends in a tie so they decide to have a quiz-off. After the meeting, Andrew talks to Spencer about Mona. He gives her a pep talk about how she should put on her Hastings face and beat Mona.
At the quiz-off, Andrew, being secretary of the Decathlon team, reads Spencer and Mona the questions as the girls try to answer them to the best of their abilities in 10 seconds.
When Mona wins, the team goes to The Brew for a party where Andrew sees Spencer looking down because of the loss. Andrew tells her that they could go to the faculty adviser to shut the whole thing down because of what Mona did to Spencer in the past. Spencer doesn't want to win that way, though, so Andrew pats her arm to let her know that it'll be okay.
Andrew and Spencer are arguing because Spencer hasn't been showing up to the Decathlon team's practices. Spencer had studied on her own but Andrew says that it is a team effort. When Spencer asks him if she is still a part of the team, he explains that she isn't because the team took a vote and removed her. Spencer challenges him to a quiz-off and says that if she wins, then she would get Andrew's vote to be voted back onto the team. If either one of them got an answer wrong, they had to take a piece of their clothes off. Eventually, the quiz off escalates as Spencer has taken off her jacket and Andrew is in his boxers. Andrew gets a question wrong and takes off his shirt. Spencer gets a question wrong and then hesitates for a second because she does not want to take her shirt off, so she just takes her bra off without removing her shirt.At the Decathlon meet, Andrew is studying with Mona when he sees Spencer walk in. He approaches her because she got kicked off the team and he doesn't want her to get in trouble. Spencer tells him that she isn't here to see him and walks over to Mona. When Spencer attacks Mona, Andrew helps pull her off.
Later, Spencer and Andrew are in Spencer's room, studying. Andrew notices all of Spencer's ribbons that she has won in riding to which Spencer responds that she has got everything in there but the horse. Spencer then asks Andrew for how long did he study for the test to which Andrew replies that he studied for about 7 hours. Spencer admits to Andrew that she didn't invite him over to study, surprising Andrew. She tells that she's been watching how he has been participating in so many extra curricular activities besides studying and asks him share his secret. Andrew is confused as to what Spencer means and so Spencer clarifies that needs some of his "study aid", "the kind with the childproof cap" to stay awake at night. Andrew tells her that he has a legit prescription for his drugs, but Spencer convinces him to give her some of it. Andrew tells Spencer that he knew something was up since Spencer never trusts anyone's notes but her own. Spencer is confused as to why Andrew came to her house in the first place if he knew something was amiss. Andrew admits to Spencer that he is disappointed since he thought Spencer broke up with Toby and invited him over because she was interested in him and leaves
Having replanted the Hastings’ yard, Andrew and Spencer walk into the shed where Andrew asks if they could take a break for a while, “I’d be good with either a bottle of water or snack, or you making out with me”. Laughing, Spencer tells him she’s still with the carpenter and an unfazed Andrew tells her it was worth a shot. Going to grab the mulch, Spencer gasps when she sees a dead possum. Andrew walks over and tells her to stay back, while he picks up a knocked over bucket of Rodenticide and tells her the animal was poisoned.
Having cooked Andrew dinner as a thank-you for helping with the garden, Spencer rejects Andrew’s attempts to help her clean up. Upset about her phone call to Hanna, Andrew asks if Spencer wants to talk about it, but she just tells him her friend is an idiot. As Spencer slices her hand open with a knife, Andrew rushes over, asking if she needs him to get anything, she tells him she doesn’t and walks over to the kitchen cabinet to patch herself up.
Walking out of the Math test at the end of class, Andrew calls out to Aria. As Aria stops and turns to face him, she asks him what’s up, and Andrew comments that “what’s up” is that he saw her reading his test answers, “copying them down”. Aria apologises before explaining that she couldn’t focus at all and she froze. Andrew listens as Aria mentions that she got a conditional acceptance to Savannah College of Art and Design, and if she doesn’t make honour roll this semester they could completely withdraw her acceptance. Aria again apologises, saying that she panicked, and it’s then that Andrew tells her to slow down, “I’m not mad”. Aria questions that he’s not, and Andrew assures her he isn’t, before suggesting that if she needs a tutor. When Aria says she doesn’t, she’s just got a lot going on, Andrew starts turning to walk away, saying that “if you’d rather get caught cheating…” Grabbing Andrew’s arm, Aria tells him to wait, and when Andrew faces her, she questions if tomorrow is okay.
In the Montgomery’s living room, Andrew asks Aria if she’d prefer to revise “factors and equilibriums or the French and Indian War”. When Aria doesn’t give him an answer, he calls out her name, and gaining it, Andrew listens as Aria mentions that she’s a little out of it as she didn’t get much sleep the previous night. Sitting back in the couch, Andrew asks if there’s anything wrong, to which Aria tells him no, she’s fine. Reaching for a textbook, Aria mentions that she should probably choose what she’s worst at, and smiling, Andrew comments that he takes it math and science “aren’t Fitz’s strong suit”. Aria questions him, and when Andrew explains that she could always ask Ezra for help, “assuming you’re still together”, Aria tells him that they should just stick to the books. Leaning in, Andrew notes that there are two types of physical quantity, “they are”…, Andrew leaves it to Aria to fill in the blank, but as Aria’s cell phone beeps, she leans forward to read the text message, ignoring Andrew’s question, “vector and scalar, that it correct”. Apologising, Aria puts her phone back down, but as Andrew goes to say something, it again beeps with an incoming text. Quickly grabbing the cell from the coffee table, Andrew asks Aria whether her phone is a vector or scalar. Aria guesses it’s a scalar, to which Andrew nods, “and if your phone were to sail through the sky accelerating at a rate of three miles per hour per second…”, and Aria assumes her cell would then be a vector. Chuffing, Andrew looks at Aria’s phone and seeing two texts from Hanna about Mike, Andrew comments that it looks as though someone’s worried about her brother. As Aria ignores the messages, the pair get back to studying.
Andrew and Aria laugh as Andrew checks the time on his cell phone. Aria questions if he’ll get there on time, and saying that he’s got about an hour til batting practice, Andrew asks if Aria wants to move onto Spanish. Listening as Aria lists off his school activities, Andrew comments that as compared is her exciting life his must seem really…, cutting in, Aria says it sounds functional, healthy, to which Andrew mentions, “planned”. Andrew and Aria smile at one another, and as there’s a knock on the front door, Andrew watches as Aria gets up to answer it. Emily’s at the door, and after telling Aria that she needs to speak with her about Mike, Emily greets Andrew when Aria looks towards him.
Reading a textbook as Aria and Emily walk back inside the house, Andrew listens as Aria asks if they can borrow his car. Emily adds that it will be just for a little bit, and picking up his keys, Andrew asks if either of them drive stick.
Andrew, Aria and Emily tail Mike, and as Aria indicates that Mike is turning left, Andrew questions whether Aria often follows her brother places. Aria comments that she doesn’t usually, and when Andrew questions that Aria has no idea where they’re going, Aria says she’s sure it’s close. Looking back and forth between Aria and the road, Andrew asks, “what exactly is going on with Mike?”, and from the backseat, Emily comments, drugs. When Andrew questions her, “drugs?”, Emily says they think Mike could be dabbling in stimulants and amphetamines. As Andrew again questions there theory about Mike, “really?”, Aria confirms what Emily said. Andrew pulls up outside Jonah’s Diner, and when Aria thanks him for the ride, Andrew wonders if he should go inside with the girls. Telling him no, Aria mentions that they’ve got it from here. Asking how Aria and Emily are getting home, Andrew listens as Emily says that Spencer can give them a ride, and Aria adds that if Andrew leaves now he can still make the end of his batting practice.
Stepping out of the shadows at the dumpsters for Jonah’s Diner, Andrew tells Cyrus to back away from Spencer, Aria and Emily, “now”. Noticing Andrew with a baseball bat, Cyrus laughs, before starting up his motorcycle. After Cyrus has ridden off, Andrew asks the girls if they’re okay.
Hearing something crash, Andrew pops his head back inside to see what is going on.
In the woods, Andrew watches as Mike stashes a foil packet in a hollowed out tree branch.
Walking out of Lucky Leons Cupcakes, Andrew listens as Aria questions what Mike put inside the tree, but Andrew says that he doesn’t know, “I started to climb up then I heard something and I thought he was coming back so I took off”. As they sit down at one of the outside tables, Andrew suggests that he could go back, but Aria tells him that it’s okay, and he did the right thing. Andrew then tells Aria that her instincts were right, “he’s definitely up to something”, and the foil packet Mike hid is in the woods behind Mona’s house, “I know which tree it is, I could show you”. When Aria tells Andrew that if he could just describe it, she can take it from here, Andrew says that Aria shouldn’t go alone, “seriously”. Adding that he doesn’t think Aria should be alone in the house with Mike either, Andrew listens as Aria tells him she won’t be, her dad gets back later. Aria assures Andrew that she’s fine, and asking if she’s sure, Andrew mentions that Aria should know that he’s here if she needs him.
From the Montgomery’s front door, Andrew calls out to Aria, asking if she’s home. Aria calls back, saying that she’s ‘up here’. Hearing a crash, Andrew rushes into Mike’s bedroom, finding Aria on the ground, “what happened?” Asking if Aria’s okay, Andrew listens as Aria says that she was standing on the weight bench and it broke. Picking up a nut and bolt, Andrew comment, “that’s weird”, and when Aria questions him, Andrew explains that the nut and bolt don’t match, “if your brother had been on this the weights would have crushed his skull”.
Checking Aria’s ankle, Andrew asks if it hurts when he presses down on it, to which Aria tells him it does a little. Saying that he doesn’t think it’s broken, Andrew tells Aria that she may have a sprain, before asking what she was doing up on the weight bench. As he’s strapping Aria’s ankle, Andrew listens as Aria mentions that she was just grabbing something from the dart board, before Andrew comments that this is why they need to hang out more, “I’m basically a human step ladder”. Continuing to strap Aria’s ankle, Andrew notes that for such a petite girl she brings a lot of chaos. Going on, Andrew rambles that it’s not as though he minds chasing down angry bikers with a baseball bat, “’cause, I mean, I don’t, I like problems”, before he lists the kinds of problems he likes, “math equations, jigsaw puzzles, complicated girls”, and saying that they don’t scare him, Andrew mentions that what does scare him is the swelling on Aria’s ankle, and she might need to get a doctor to look at it. Looking up to Aria, Andrew notices that she’s crying, and scooting over to her, he offers Aria his sleeve to wipe her tears, telling her to go to town. Aria shakes her head, wiping her tears, and as the two share a look, Andrew leans in to kiss her, a kiss Aria reciprocates.
Across the street from the Vanderwaal residence, Andrew stands watching, and after having seen Spencer, Aria and Emily enter, he turns and walks away.
At The Brew, Andrew calls out to Aria who has just walked in, before saying that he didn’t want her getting the wrong idea. When Aria questions him about what, Andrew explains that he’s been thinking and he realises that he made a really bad impression when he said what he did about Mona. Aria tells him that everything about Mona was complicated, to which Andrew says that when he said what he did about her, he saw the look that crossed Aria’s face, “and it wasn’t the way I wanna see you look at me. Ever”. As Aria says that it’s just her face, and sometimes it does things without checking with her first, Andrew tells her that it sounded like he was saying that Mona deserved what happened to her, and he doesn’t believe that. Listening as Aria says that nobody does, Andrew says that it was bothering him, and he just wanted to make sure they were clear on this, to which Aria says they’re clear. After saying that if Aria needs him for anything, “cramming for an exam, or driving out to some roadhouse”, Andrew questions that she has him on speed dial. Aria tells him right, and saying that he feels better, Andrew kisses her on the cheek. Noticing the look on Aria’s face as he pulls back, Andrew comments that he guesses he surprised her face again, to which Aria says that it’s okay, and she’ll call him. Saying okay, Andrew walks from the establishment.
During Alison's ongoing trial, Andrew slides into the seat next to Aria as she listens to Lesli's testimony and holds her hand.The next day at school, while Aria is working on the yearbook, Andrew walks into the classroom. He asks Aria why she failed to call him the previous night, but she shrugs it off, saying that she had family stuff to deal with. Andrew wants to know if the family stuff is actully about Mike. Aria admits that it is: Alison's trial is starting to mess with Mike's head and so she has asked Ezra to take Mike away for a couple of days. Andrew is surprised that Aria went to Ezra for help instead of come to him since he thought that her and Ezra were over for good. Aria assures him that though they are definitely broken up, Mike bonded with Ezra after Mona's memorial. Andrew, a little hurt, states that he can bond with Mike too, "you don't need a teaching degree for that." Aria tries to reassure him that she and Ezra are just friends, it's just that Ezra's got a cabin up in the Poconos, and so her parents are comfortable with him taking Mike up there. Contemptuously, Andrew comments that Ezra has "got Mom and Pop on his side, too." Aria tries to make him understand that it's not a competition between him and Ezra, she and Ezra happen to have a lot of history. Andrew states that he has offered to help Aria the same way that Ezra has but he thinks that Aria doesn’t seem to hear him when he says that he’s there for her. Ella tells Aria to get back to work. Aria comforts him, saying that she does hear him and gives him a kiss. Later, that night, when Aria is unable to reach Ezra or Mike on the phone, as a last resort, she calls Andrew to ask him to go and check on Mike but Andrew doesn't answer her calls.
The next day, as Aria sits by the stairwell in the courthouse, waiting for the jury's verdict, Andrew walks up to her. Aria asks him why he didn't pick up her calls the previous night and Andrew claims that he was busy completing his yearbook page and his phone must have died. Andrew wants to know why Aria is sitting on the stairs, to which she replies "it's either here or the parking lot." Aria confesses that she hates waiting and so Andrew offers to join her and she accepts. As they sit together, Andrew asks for Aria's help on his yearbook page. Aria reads through his page and smiling, comments "I know you're a nice guy and all, but I didn't know you were an award-winning Pathfinder scout." Andrew admits that he was one for twelve years and says "You never know when those skills are gonna come in handy."
He is currently on the run from the police as he is the prime suspect for kidnapping The Liars since Tanner and her team discover the van used to kidnap the girls, what is supposed to be Andrew's diary filled with notes about the girls and camera equipment at a farm owned by Andrew's uncle.
