Pretty Little Liars Crazy Fan Theory: Toby Has a Twin
On Pretty Little LiarsSeason 4, Episode 17 (“Bite Your Tongue”) we saw "A" shredding a bunch of documents from the dentist's office, one of which featured the name "C. Cavanaugh" — which many fans linked to the "Chris Cavanaugh" that was listed at the school for the blind's sign out book.
There are a lot of theories about who this mysterious character could be — if, indeed, it is an important character at all and not just a random name — and today we want to explore one of the most extreme concepts we've seen fans kicking around: That "Chris Cavanaugh" is Toby's twin.
Huh? you may be asking. Where does that come from? Well, there are a couple of factors:
The books. In the Pretty Little Liars books, Alison has a twin (who is the one who was actually killed and buried). The writers and actors have all said that they aren't going to make Ali have a twin on the show, which has led many fans to suspect a different character might end up having a twin, since the writers love to take elements from the books and use them in new ways for the show. So that's why the concept of a twin is popular.
The last name. So far, we've never heard of a Chris Cavanaugh on the show, but based on his last name, many fans think this person may be related to Toby. Perhaps a secret twin?
The body. As this Tumblr user points out, we've never gotten a full explanation for the time Spencer thought she found Toby's body in the woods. Maybe that really was someone who looked exactly like Toby, but was dead — his twin.
What do you think of this theory — is it possible, or totally crazy? Sound off in the comments below.
