Next week’s episode of “Pretty Little Liars,” titled “Hot for Teacher,” is looking excellent based on these sneak-peek clips.

Above, Hanna shares some more screentime with Detective Hottie … er, Holbrook (guest star Sean Faris), who says he’s “up to [his] holster in all things CeCe Drake these days.” Hopefully that means we’ll see her again soon.

Below, Aria and Hanna wonder what’s up with Spencer because she’s so excited … so excited … so scared. Meanwhile, Hanna name-drops “Gabe,” and Aria wonders why Hanna is calling Det. Hottie by his first name. Um, you’re one to talk, Lolita.

In the third clip, Emily tries to get Shana to pass along an apology from Emily to Alison, but Shana isn’t really interested in anything Emily has to say.

Do you really think Shana is helping Alison? Her story seems to check out but it’s hard to trust her. However, we are cheered by the fact that Emily is at the hospital but not bawling her eyes out, so we’ll assume her dad is doing OK.

“Pretty Little Liars” airs Tuesday nights at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC Family.
