|“||Connor: It was nice hanging out with you.
Connor: Yeah, next time we ought to do this over burgers instead of books.
Aria: I'm sorry, I'm not interested like that.
— Aria rejecting Connor in "Under The Gun"
Coria is the friendship/hate pairing of Aria Montgomery and Connor. He never was mentioned in the series before his appearance in Under The Gun. He had a crush on Aria, but she doesn't have feelings for him.
At her house, Aria helps Connor with his English paper. They are interrupted by Mike, who seems surprised to see Connor there. He leaves without saying much, leading Connor to believe he's mad at him.
Connor and Aria finish with the paper. Aria walks him to the door, wishing him luck on his next lacrosse game. Before Connor leaves, he kisses Aria, who pushes him away and tells him she isn’t interested.
The next day at school, Mike storms up to Aria, annoyed that she hooked up with Connor last night. He tells Aria he just hear Connor talking about it in the locker room. Aria marches down the hall, past Mr. Fitz, and straight into the boy’s locker room and confronts Connor in front of his friends. Aria tries to set the record straight - that nothing happened between them last night, but Connor keeps pushing the rumor, and brings up her relationship with Mr. Fitz, calling her a slut and humiliating her in front of his friends. Then Mr. Fitz appears and tells Aria that she shouldn’t be in there. He heard the whole thing.
