Pretty Little Liars Season 4: Who Should Hanna Date Next?
Right now, one of the only stable aspects of Hanna’s (Ashley Benson) life is her relationship with boyfriend, Caleb. Unfortunately, as any spoiler-reader knows, the future is uncertain for the seemingly solid Pretty Little Liarsromance with Caleb’s departure to Ravenswoodimminent. PLL producer Oliver Goldstick recently said that all of the Liars would be getting new romantic prospects in Season 4. Who might Hanna’s be?
Aria’s younger brother, Mike (Cody Allen Christian), will be making a return appearance in Season 4, Episode 5: “Gamma Zeta Die, and we can’t wait. Not only because there’s still so much we don’t know about Mike, but because Mike and Hanna were an item in the book series. The television show often strays from the plot of the books, but we wonder if this might be one storyline they explore now that Hanna’s main love interest is leaving town. We might have thought this coupling was a tad strange before, but Mike is looking all grown up now and we think this pairing would not only create some interesting drama for Hanna and Mike, but also a new dynamic for Hanna and Aria.
It’s no secret that Lucas (Brendan Robinson) has always had a thing for Hanna, going out of his way to make sure the blond beauty is happy even if it is not with him. Hanna has always been a good friend to Lucas, but she has never seen him as something more than that. We wonder if, with Caleb gone, that might change for her. Way back in Season 1, we thought there was a possibility that this romance would happen (remember when “A” made Hanna dance with Lucas in Season 1, Episode 14: “Careful What U Wish 4”?). Maybe - three seasons later — it will.
Gas Station Guy
PLL recently put out a casting call for Travis “a high school-aged gas station employee who possesses a ‘reserved and rugged’ quality and a ‘solid and moral’ center.” With all of the Liars set to have new romantic prospects in their future, this Travis could be interested in any of the Liars. With Caleb set to leave for Ravenswood soon in the filming schedule, we can’t help but notice how well the timing of Travis’ introduction meshes with Hanna’s heartbreak. Plus, now that Luke Kleintank has just been cast in the "rugged" role, we can totally see how Travis and Hanna would make a swoon-worthy couple — but watch out Hanna! He's harboring a dirty little secret.
We try to forget that uber awkward kiss Hanna and Wren shared in Season 3, but it definitely happened. We get that Hanna was missing Caleb at this point and felt close to Wren as they both tried to help Mona, but we were surprised by Wren’s reaction. He seemed genuinely interested in pursuing something with Hanna. With Hanna on the market again, we wonder if Dr. Kingston will throw his hat back in the ring.
Ashley Benson jumped on the Hanna/Emily bandwagon. During the Season 4 premiere, the PLLer was asked this question from a Twitter follower: “Caleb is leaving Rosewood, Paige too can now Emily (Shay Mitchell) and Hanna be together?” Ash’s response? “haaaa yes!!!!!” These two are already super close and it’s always easier dating someone who knows the “A” secret. Could Emily and Hanna’s friendship turn romantic?
Do you think one of these guys (and girl) will be Hanna’s next love interest? Are there any prospects we’re missing? Sound off in the comments below!
