Get ready, Hamptons, there’s a studly ex-con coming your way. If you were heartbroken when Declan Porter (Connor Paolo) died tragically in the Season 2 finale, leaving Charlotte Grayson (Christa Allen) all kinds of depressed, it’s time to cheer up and let her hook up with the new bad boy in town. Season 3 is looking up for the youngest Grayson.

Remember when we told you that Nolan (Gabriel Mann) would be visited by an old pal from the slammer in an upcoming episode? Newcomer Henri Esteve is playing Nolan’s home arrest buddy, Javier, and we’re looking out for sparks between him and Charlotte down the road.

“He’s a bit of a bad boy that comes on and links Charlotte to Nolan,” Christa teases to TV Guide. Hmm, so not only is she getting a bad boy love interest, but it sounds like Charlotte might be gaining a friend in our favorite recovering tech geek.

With Javier’s street smarts from the wrong side of the tracks and his prison attitude, we are pretty positive that if Victoria (Madeleine Stowe) finds out about Char’s new beau, she’ll freak out and have some choice words for her rebellious daughter. But, then again, when doesn’t she have something to say?

What do you think about Charlotte’s new love interest? Why do you think she’s getting close to Nolan? Hit the comments and let us know!
