‘Pretty Little Liars’ spoilers: A directorial debut and shirtless Toby

For those of you wanting some more of what is happening on the “Pretty Little Liars” set Thursday, know this — the show is already hard at work at the episodes for the winter half of the season to premiere in January, and in particular, this is going to be one of the most significant episodes yet.

What’s going on? The crew is currently shooting the 16th episode of season 3, and it just so happens to be the directorial debut of showrunner Marlene King — who has also penned a number of episodes over the course of the show’s run including the summer finale coming up on August 28.

Just to give you a taste of what is going to be coming up specifically in this episode, King gave us the following tiny tease on Twitter:

“Mama didn’t get much sleep but she’s excited about day 2 of epi 316! First scene up, shirtless Toby!”

With shirtless Toby generally comes a “Spoby” scene, so it’s possible this could bode well for the future of the couple, even if he and Spencer have been a little bit separated as of late due to all of the “A Team” drama (coupled with Troian Bellisario’s character trying her best to actually find the time to study). Still, Toby is considered a suspect to be Maya’s killer, as he is featured as one of the people to watch on the ABC Family show’s website.

Before we get to this episode, we certainly have plenty of content to go through — including two more episodes this summer, the Halloween special, and then two more installments in the winter before we come to King’s debut.

Are you excited for this episode?┬áIf you want to check out some more scoop when it comes to Paige (and whether or not she is a suspect for the “ultimate betrayal”), be sure and read our story here.
