In a chat with THR following Tuesday’s episode, Blackburn says of the Hanna-Caleb romance: “They are pretty strong this whole season, miraculously so, even though they’re dealing with a lot.”
[Warning: Spoilers from Tuesday's "Dead to Me."]
Did Caleb meet his biological father?
That’s one of the looming questions introduced in the latest episode of Pretty Little Liars. “He definitely has mixed emotions,” Tyler Blackburn tells The Hollywood Reporter about his character’s mindset at the end of “Dead to Me,” adding, “He’s rejecting the idea because it opens some doors for him being hurt. When Hanna says that, it’s like opening old wounds.”The season stays pretty dramatic and dark.”
In the fifth installment of THR’s weekly postmortem with Pretty Little Liars cast and producers, Blackburn discusses lingering family questions, Caleb’s team-up with Paige and the state of his relationship with Hanna.
The Hollywood Reporter: What did you find people responding to from last night’s episode?
Tyler Blackburn: They were surprised to see Emily (Shay Mitchell) possibly the one who could have killed Alison (Sasha Pieterse), people definitely thought Uncle Jamie was Caleb’s dad and Wesley (Gregg Sulkin) and Aria’s (Lucy Hale) maybe romance. Obviously “Spoby” is now broken, that was a big topic of conversation.
