At the end of Ravenswood’s mid-season finale (Season 1, Episode 5: “Scared to Death”), we discovered Olivia’s boyfriend Dillon was up to no good with evil ghost girl Max. But what exactly are they up to?

TVLine recently chatted with executive producer Oliver Goldstick about Dilllon’s mysterious motives, and he shed some light on the enigmatic Ravenswood resident. “You’ll find out why he talks to that little girl — he’s got a good reason, too,” he said. “He is a mortal, he’s not an evil being. But he basically has access to something else and you’ll find out why.”

He obviously has access to the Other Side, right? How else would he be able to communicate with Max? We know Dillon has a “connection to the past,” so it’s possible that he had a past life similar to Caleb and Miranda’s.

While we’re not sure what Dillon’s motives are — is he trying to make sure the curse goes according to plan? — we do know that he’ll be getting closer to Olivia when Season 1 returns in January 2014. Perhaps Dillon knows the truth about what happened to Luke and Olivia's father.  According to Oliver, "the legacy of the curse, where it comes from, how it’s going to impact their lives now and what happened to Luke and Olivia’s father because of it" will be the focus of the winter season. 

Now we need more Ravenswood ASAP! 

Catch the Ravenswood winter premiere on Tuesday, January 7, 2014 at 9 p.m. ET on ABC Family.
