“Everything they go through definitely deepens their relationship and the one thing that Toby really can’t stand is lies,” Troian said. “There was a lot of lying with Spencer getting deeper and deeper into her Adderall addiction and a lot of hiding. He really hates that. I think that’s why she came clean. She was forced to. She didn’t come out and say, ‘Hey, I’m struggling with this,’ so he got really upset. I think that’s why he left at the end of last season.”
Of course, the lying isn’t over, is it? Spencer is not telling Toby the truth about the circumstances surrounding Ali’s disappearance and return — and Toby knows enough about the “A” game that he might be able to figure out that Spence is keeping things from him. Regardless of whether Toby figures it out himself, the truth has to come out eventually. These two have been through so much together, and still manage to love one another. But will love be enough? Will this lie be the dealbreaker? We hope not!
