We’ve not seen the last of new girl Sydney Driscoll (Chloe Bridges) on Pretty Little Liars. The newest swim team member will be back in Season 5, Episode 8 (if not before then), and with a boyfriend in tow. Who’s the lucky Rosewood High guy in question?

“SPOILER: Sydney, the newest member of the Rosewood swim team, gets a boyfriend in #PLL 5x08,” the official PLL Twitter handle tweeted yesterday, piquing our interest.


Though the tweet didn’t mention who Syd’s romantic partner might be, we’re more than happy to speculate on that point. Of course, our most hopeful of guesses is reserved for Noel Kahn (Brant Daugherty). We’ve always loved having Brant make an appearance on PLL, but we’ve been even more eager to learn about his character since we discovered that he’d been helping Ali during her life-on-the-run disappearance. The character also got two shout-outs in the second episode of the season. Coincidence, or will Noel be back in the Liars’ lives sometime soon?

Another possibility is Lucas (Brendan Robinson). Hanna’s former BFF and ex-“A” team minion, Lucas has been lurking in the background of Season 5 as part of Mona’s Army. Might he be the new guy in Sydney’s life? We did get the same adorably awkward vibe from Syd as we have from Lucas in seasons past. These two would make a pretty cute match.

Who do you think Sydney’s new boyfriend is? Share your theories in the comments below!
