The One About Toby and Stuff (2021 Thoughts Added)

Warning: This post contains Pretty Little Liars spoilers. If you haven’t watched the whole show, then proceed with caution.

A little note: In August 2014, I started watching Pretty Little Liars. That November, I started blogging about it until it ended in 2017. I haven’t watched it since, but people are still reading my posts in 2021. So, I’ve decided to add thoughts and comments based on the feelings and opinions I have in 2021. Because you’re reading this now, I want to thank you! Tbh, after the disappointment of the series finale, I felt like I wasted time writing these posts. Because you’re reading this, it doesn’t feel like a waste anymore. So, thanks!

(Unless otherwise noted, parenthesis indicate thoughts from 2021)

I take it back! I am NOT okay with Spaleb! Nope! Not at all! Did you see Toby’s face when Caleb told him? No! Okay? No! It was close to the same face he made in the hotel with Spencer. Ya know? When she was talking to him about how she felt when he let her cry outside his apartment! Then, he looked at the ring he would have given that chick before he found out about Spencer and Caleb! Officer Toby didn’t propose as he planned! Why do you suppose that is? It couldn’t be because he’s still in love Spencer, could it be? I mean, he did have a glimmer of hope on his torn face when he asked Spencer if she would be returning to DC. Ugh! My heart guys! It hurts right now! I love Toby so much!

^This is the face^

Let me tell you why the look on Toby’s face hurt me so much more than the look on Hanna’s face. It’s because Hanna is engaged to Jordan, who by the way, is a total sweetheart! And yeah, I get it, Toby was on the verge of being engaged, but I don’t know… there’s something different about Toby. Hanna, I guess, I don’t know…. Before she went off on Spencer for being with Caleb, she seemed like she could have been happy for them. Toby though, his immediate response was heartbreak. He couldn’t even look at Caleb when he wasn’t telling him it was okay. Hannah pretty much looked Spencer dead in the eye when she told her it was okay. Now, don’t get me wrong. I do believe Hannah loves Caleb as much as Toby loves Spencer. I also think Hannah might be able to deal with Spaleb a little better than Toby can. (I don’t remember why I thought this, but I don’t disagree now. So…)

Let’s talk about that morning-after scene though! Was it me, or even in the happiness and bliss of the moment, did Spencer seem to be a little bit remorseful? To me, she seemed a bit hesitant, like she could have been feeling regret. I mean, I do like Caleb and Spencer together for a short time and they do seem to like each other. But I think Spencer loves Toby and Hanna more than she likes Caleb. It wouldn’t surprise me if Toby ends up working with the girls again to beat this “big bad.” Or if Spencer goes to him one night when she needs to talk and something happens with them. The same scenario could take place with Hannah and Caleb! A girl can dream, right? A girl can hope for her OTP’s to get back together?


Okay, now let’s talk about this “big bad!” How creepy was that final scene? Like, for real! He took off a LITERAL face mask! Not like the ceramic ones Charlotte and her minions wore, but a flesh-like mask! CREEP-Y! skin crawls This “big bad” is out for serious blood! He’s not playing any games! His text message was serious when he said he’s hiding in plain sight! CREEPY! skin crawls again I don’t know if I can handle this! I…. Ugh! I am CREEPED OUT! And, in case you didn’t notice, his glasses are the same as Leslie Stone’s!


Last, but not least, Byron…. Creepy or not? If you say not, then I will question your sanity. Like more than anyone already questions the sanity of Pretty Little Liars fan! Byron is so freaking CREEPY! I’ve kind of always thought so! I don’t care that he dated his student. They were both legal adults. I do care that he cheated on his wife, made his daughter lie, and gave his daughter hell for dating a teacher. She did learn it from him. There’s also something creepy about a man who has so much hatred for a girl his daughter’s age—any scene he’s had with Alison! (Byron still creeps me out. He and Peter and Kenneth. Like even more than the twenty-something dudes dating teenagers.)

Thanks for reading! Let me know if you need anything! Like seriously. I’m here for you!
