In the Pretty Little Liars season 3 mid-season finale, we learned the chilling truth that Toby Cavanaugh (Keegan Allen) is part of the "A" Team that Mona (Janel Parrish) told Spencer (Troian Bellisario) about in the season 2 finale. The fact that we can't stop picturing Toby in an "A" hoodie isn't the only thing that doesn't bode well for Spoby fans.
Come season 3B, Spencer will be given a new love interest in Andrew Campbell, to be played by Brandon W Jones (CSI) - who we may not have seen yet in the TV series, but he's a pretty prominent character in the books.
Fans of the PLL book series know that Andrew is one of Spencer’s classmates who eventually competes with her to become class president (he wins, and she becomes his VP), and class valedictorian. They eventually start dating.
In the books, Andrew was a big love interest for Spencer (Troian Bellisario) and was described as a competitive spirit who Spencer once suspected of being “A.”
Well, we know how that turned out with Toby. But do you think showrunner Marlene King and the PLL writers will follow that same storyline with Andrew on the show? We'll have to wait and see, but in the meantime, Spoby fans want to know if there's any hope at all for their favorite PLL couple. Is it all just pointless? PLL writer, Andy Reaser answered a fan over Twitter who asked just that.
"hope is never pointless."
Are you still hoping for Spoby to work out? Brandon is set to make his PLL appearance as Andrew in episode 15 of season 3, "Mona-Mania", so be sure to keep your eyes peeled for this new Rosewood "hottie".
