Caleb Rivers (Tyler Blackburn) makes his triumphant return to Rosewood on Season 5, Episode 5 (“Miss Me x 100”), and he's sporting a brand new, post-Ravenswood style.
As you can see in the photo above, Caleb has chopped his locks, grown some facial hair, and upped his wardrobe game with a cool layered look that highlights a grunge-inspired jacket. Caleb has always had a little bit of the bad boy (with a heart of gold, duh) style going on, but he's clearly taken that to the max this season.
We can't say we're surprised. After all, Caleb's just returned from a town where the supernatural was real and his life was constantly on the line in a way that made "A" look like child's play. As Tyler Blackburn explained to us, Caleb has been changed by his experience; he's "tortured inside" now, and the haircut is the physical manifestation of his internal angst. Hey, he's a teen — drastically changing your style to match your mood is what teens do!
So, we get why Caleb looks so different, but is the style switch-up a good thing?
Here at Wetpaint Entertainment, we're loving it. We'll miss Caleb's longer 'do, but this new look feels older and edgier. Caleb was always super hot, but somehow the new style makes him even hotter. Hanna's a lucky girl — if she decides to take him back.
