Pretty Little Liars

What Does Keegan Allen’s New Beard Mean For Toby on Pretty Little Liars?

Last week, Pretty Little Liars star Keegan Allen (Toby Cavanaugh) made a shocking red carpet appearance. Not because of anything he said or did, but because of the crazy new beard he was sporting. Since Keegan is currently filming PLL Season 3’s winter season, what does the new facial hair mean for Toby?

The last time we saw Toby, he was wearing his black hoodie as part of the “A” team. As far as we know, the only person who knows Toby is working for the enemy is the enemy itself: Mona (Janel Parrish), and whoever else is on the “A” team. Is Keegan’s beard a sign that he’s stopped pretending to be the good guy that Spencer (Troian Bellisario) and everyone else in Rosewood thinks he is?

We know that one of the Liars will find out about Toby’s secret identity in Season 3, Episode 16: "Misery Loves Company," which means that Spencer won’t be far behind. If everyone finds out about Toby, he may go underground again and go off the grid. Off the grid, he may not have access to an electric shaver, and he may not even care.

Then again, there’s always the possibility that Toby just loses his mind. We know that he saw a therapist after his affair with Jenna (Tammin Sursok) (that’s how Alison [Sasha Pieterse] found out about it, through medical records), and that he was considered a loner who spied on everyone before Ali died. Plus, well, he’s on the “A” team with Mona, who is sneaking out of a mental hospital every night. Seems pretty likely that Toby could go nuts, and subsequently, stop shaving.

What are your theories about Keegan’s new beard? Share them in the comments below!

Don’t miss the next new episode of PLL, the Halloween special, on Tuesday, October 23 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC Family.
