Spoby has been pretty solid this season on Pretty Little Liars — especially compared to most of the other couples on this show! But is all that about to change? According to E! Online, a charismatic new character is coming to town, and he will be spending a lot of time with our favorite brainiac, Spencer Hastings (Troian Bellisario)…

Here are the deets: The Normal Heart’s Will Bradley has been cast as a painter named Johnny Raymond. Artist boy is described as “cute, edgy, and charismatic.” (Basically, he’s a triple threat.) Johnny is set to appear in Season 5, Episode 15 — aka we won’t see him until 2015 —and is rumored to appear in at least three episodes. How will he be spending most of that time? In the proximity of one Spencer Hastings.




Yikes! This guy sounds totally cool, but we love Spoby together. Will something happen to break these two apart before Episode 15? Or will the Spoby spark just have fizzled? We find the latter hard to believe have you seen Spencer and Toby together?!

Of course, it's possible this new guy will have a purely platonic relationship with Spencer. But come on — it's rare for a hot guy to show up in Rosewood without at least flirting with a Liar.

Aside from the potential romantic consequences of this character coming to Rosewood, we’re interested in the possible “A” Team connotations. Few people pop up on the Liars’ radar without having some affiliation with the central mystery of the series. Will Johnny be an exception? If not, might he be connected to Ali, “A”, or one of the recent murders? With a name like Johnny Raymond, he has to be up to something, right? Never trust a man with two names!

How do you feel about a potential new love interest for Spencer? Do you think Johnny Raymond will be related to the “A” game? Sound off in the comments below!
