It was nice to get our recommended dose of Spoby love in last night’s Pretty Little Liars noir-inspired episode even if it was only from the Spoby inside of Spencer’s (Troian Bellisario) pill-popping head. But how are the real-life Spoby doing? Executive producer Joseph Dougherty weighs in...

“They're still a very solid couple, but what you see in the black-and-white episode is Spencer being concerned that they're still keeping secrets from each other and that this is something they still need to process,” Joseph told TV Guide. “They're both not asking the other certain questions and that usually doesn't work in relationships. It usually comes to a head when one says, ‘There's something you're not telling me.’ They love each other, but I don't know that they think each one is telling the truth.”

Er, we actually don’t like the sound of that very much. To be honest, we’ve been waiting for this ‘ship to crash and burn since we heard of Keegan Allen’s absence from filming to star in an Off-Broadway NYC production. Unfortunately, Keegan’s burgeoning stage career presumably means no Toby for a few episodes. Are those the eps coming up? And, if so, is Toby’s absence a result of a Spoby breakup, or is it just one of his trips out of Rosewood generally explained with a throwaway comment or an after-the-fact reunion explanation? Again, we need our doses of Spoby love especially during the long, dark winter months!

Do you think Spoby will ever learn to completely trust one another? Is there a breakup in their near future? Sound off in the comments below!
