Cody Christian Talks Motives Behind Mike’s Recent Actions on “Pretty Little Liars” – Read the Q&A!

Mike Montgomery (Cody Christian) gets even more creepy on tonight’s Pretty Little Liarsand CS4U has the scoop on what you can expect from the brand-new episode!

In “Out, Damned Spot,” college pressure mounts while the Liars try to keep tabs on Mike (Christian).

Senior high school students focus on their future college careers and feel the high pressures that come along with it, and Aria (Lucy Hale) , Emily (Shay Mitchell), Hanna (Ashley Benson) and Spencer (Troian Bellisario) are no different. With a grade contingent acceptance, Aria needs to buckle down to improve her grades and looks to Andrew (Brandon Jones) for some tutoring help. Also having college acceptance anxiety, Spencer decides to take a break and help Jonny (Will Bradley) with a new project. Hanna is doing just fine on her college acceptances but finds out that she has been turned down for financial aid and turns to her dad to help.

Meanwhile, Aria and the girls concerns about Mike increase after an incident at the school blood drive.

CS4U recently caught up with Cody find out some PLL scoop. In the Q&A, Cody talk about the motivations behind Mike’s recent actions, the secret bag that he was leaving behind in last week’s episode, his relationship with Aria, and when we will find out what Mike’s been up to. Read the highlights below.

Pretty Little Liars airs tonight at 8PM ET/PT on ABC Family.

What can you tell us about the movitations behind Mike’s recent actions?

Cody: I think what’s motivating Mike is what’s been motivating The Liars from Season One — and that’s to find answers.  That’s the extent of it all.  He wants to know why and what happened.  He wants answers about Mona.

Can you tell us more about that secret bag Mike was leaving behind? What was going through your mind when you were filming that scene?

Cody: “There was a close-up shot of the bag and I think the audience saw there were some sour candies in there, which are actually my favorite.  I love sour gummies.  I’m a huge fan of Sour Patch Kids.  The real question is, it’s interesting to see how people interpret it because it’s – it almost read as disappointment on Mike’s face — and that could be led to assume, was he waiting for somebody?  Was he intending to meet somewhere there at the dock?  Was he just out there taking a stroll?  That’s the question in the air right now.  Fortunately, we will get those answers very soon in the episodes to come!”

Will Mike’s character, or even the viewers, be getting those answers sooner rather than later?

Cody: Absolutely!  I stand behind saying that.  The answers will be given to the audience very, very soon.  I know that there’s been times where cast members have said “soon” and then a season has gone by before something has actually happened [laughs]. But I can tell you, in regards to Mike and what’s going on with him now, the audience will receive answers very soon rather than later.

How will this darker side of Mike be affecting his relationship with his sister, Aria, in the coming weeks?

Cody: “This is something that the past has already answered previous times before.  I think we’re going to see an instance, maybe of the past repeating itself, history repeating itself in Rosewood.  Mike and Aria have always been best friends and they’ve had each other’s backs – and at the same time, we’ve also seen them at each other’s throats. At this point, Mike’s done taking orders from people.  He’s done being told what to do and he’s going to do whatever he feels is necessary to get the answers that he wants.  He’s going to do that at no one’s mercy, so that might cause some tension between Aria and Mike. But at the end of the day, I don’t think it’s anything they’re not going to be able to get through.  They’re family and they would do anything for each other.
