We’re still getting used to the fact that Toby (Keegan Allen) is on the “A” team, which means we’re analyzing his every look, movement, and action. In this sneak peek of the Pretty Little Liars Halloween episode (Season 3, Episode 13: “This Is a Dark Ride”, airing October 23), Toby rushes to save Noel (Brant Daugherty) from choking. Why does someone on the “A” team care so much about Noel’s well-being?
If anything, we would have thought that the “A” team deeply dislikes Noel. Mona (Janel Parrish) is a bonafide hoodie-wearing “A” team member, and Noel dumped her in Season 2. Plus, Noel is dating Toby’s step-sister Jenna (Tammin Sursok), which would put Toby in an awkward relationship with Noel, considering his own sexual history with her.
One thing that Noel and Jenna definitely have in common is their shared resentments against Alison (Sasha Pieterse). In the Season 2 Halloween episode (Season 2, Episode 13: ”The First Secret”), Noel invites Alison and the Liars to his big Halloween bash, but it might have just been because he had a crush on Aria. And when Noel started checking out Jenna on the dance floor, Ali was visibly upset.
As for Toby, we’ve gone over several reasons why the social outcast would have a major grudge against the Liars and Alison in particular. So it makes sense that these two would share common goals.
Toby’s sudden rescue makes us wonder if Noel is also on the “A” team. But with Noel probably comes Jenna. Could Toby and Jenna both really be on the same team of anything? Then again, if Jenna and Noel were the ones who framed Emily (Shay Mitchell) “that night,” then the “A” team might include all of them.
Tell us in the comments if you think Toby and Noel are part of the same alliance, and whether or not that alliance begins with “A.”
