Pretty Little Liars’ resident hacker Caleb (Tyler Blackburn) is set to depart for spin-off Ravenswood soon after Season 4B starts — but what does this mean for girlfriend Hanna (Ashley Benson)? Is there a chance Hanna could also make the move to Ravenswood? We speculate below.
Yes, Caleb is family
The most tragic aspect of Caleb’s departure is how solid Hanna and he are right now. He was her rock during the fiasco with her mother’s arrest for Wilden’s murder. Not only was he there to comfort her, but he actively tried to figure out what happened the night of Wilden’s murder, personally visited Hanna’s dad to make sure he would be there for his daughter, and even offered to sell his car for bail money. More than that, he was willing to call Hanna out when she was set to do something stupid (i.e. confess to the murder herself). Basically, Caleb has been Hanna’s family these past few months, and we would totally understand if she followed him to Ravenswood to help him with whatever he needs to do there. Besides, Rosewood is dangerous.
No, the Liars are family, too
But Caleb isn’t Hanna’s only family, of course. In addition to her actual blood relations (especially her mother, who was just released from jail and probably needs some mother/daughter time), Hanna has the Liars to think about. They are her family, too, and we can’t help but think that the only reason they have survived “A”’s onslaught so far is because they have stuck together. “A” has bonded these girls together in a very intense way, and we can’t imagine Hanna abandoning them to face “A” on their own — even if she has to let go of Caleb for now.
No, but she will visit — a lot
And “letting go” of Caleb doesn’t necessarily mean breaking up with him. After all, Tyler has said that Haleb will not break up when Caleb leaves. Hanna and Caleb have done the long-distance thing before — when he was living with his mom in California — and it worked out fine. They’ve been through so much together, it’s going to take a lot to break these two up. Plus, we know that Hanna and Emily will visit Ravenswood at some point in the near future. For now, maybe that’s enough.
Do you think Hanna will move to Ravenswood? Do you think she should? Sound off in the comments below!
