When we heard the news that Tyler Blackburn was returning to Pretty Little Liars as a series regular in Season 5, we immediately thought of what this would mean for Haleb. Would Hanna leave Travis for Caleb when he comes back to town? Or will Hanna make him work for her love? It’s still unclear on what Hanna and Caleb’s relationship status is heading into Season 5, but executive producer Oliver Goldstick recently shed some light on the complicated situation.
“It’s a lovely reunion,” he told The Hollywood Reporter. OK, so we know that’s extremely vague, but it does tell us one thing: there are no hard feelings between the former couple. When we last saw Hanna and Caleb together, the blonde left Ravenswood with some closure. Caleb didn’t cheat on her with Miranda; instead, forces beyond his control was forcing him to stay in the creepy little town. Their goodbye, while heartbreaking, was definitive. And more importantly, it put the ball in Hanna’s court.
So what’s going to happen when Caleb returns to Rosewood and sees Hanna hanging around Travis? We’re hoping Caleb fights for Hanna the same way she fought for him when she thought there was something going on between him and Miranda. As much as we enjoy watching Hanna and Travis’ chemistry grow, she belongs with Caleb. After all, he defeated a deadly curse and still returned for her!
