Toby (Keegan Allen) is always jetting out of town for one reason or another — carpentry trips, impromptu vacations in London, etc. — and it sounds like the habit will continue into the fifth season. Pretty Little Liars writer Bryan Holdman has just confirmed that Toby will not appear in Season 5, Episode 7.

“Sorry, I have to say it is NO,” Bryan tweeted yesterday in response to a fan question on whether the Tobester would appear in the episode. This isn’t so unexpected, as only the core four appear in every episode, but it always chills the heart to know that Pretty Eyes won’t be in a particular installment. Of course, it doesn’t necessarily mean Toby will be out of town. He might just be off-screen. And if Spoby is the Pretty Little Liars couple that will be spiraling in Season 5, then that could explain his absence. Single Toby tends to get less screen time than Spoby Toby.

Toby may not be in Episode 7, but he better be in Episode 5 — aka the 100th episode. One of our items on the list of “Five Scenes We Need to See in the 100th Episode” is a Rosewood gathering. Basically, we want an excuse for all of our beloved characters to appear in the ep, and a party seems the best solution. Either way, though, Toby better make an appearance. He has been in Pretty Little Liars since the pilot, and we couldn’t imagine the show without him.

Do you think Spoby will spiral in Season 5? Are you as adamant as we are about Toby appearing in the 100th episode? Sound off in the comments below!
