Season OneEdit

In "It Doesn't Just Happen in Rosewood Anymore", Analeigh seems to be the most unaffected of the girls by Olivia's disappearance. When the subject is brought up, she seems unfazed, and also passive about the fact that Olivia has been missing for a month. She is shown to be close with Jamie McIntyre and Selena Rose by the start of the series. She is also friends with Liana Greene, who is not a member of Olivia's former clique. Liana, like Analeigh, is popular as well. Before discovering Olivia's body, Analeigh thinks she has left something in her car, as goes back to get it. While she is missing, the girls discover Olivia's body, with Analeigh being the last to see her.
