TV show description:
A spin-off of Pretty Little Liars, this dramatic series takes place in Ravenswood, a Pennsylvania town which has suffered under a deadly curse for generations. Five strangers suddenly find their lives interconnected and need to uncover into the town’s mysterious and terrible history before it’s too late for them.
Caleb Rivers (Tyler Blackburn) is a street-smart “bad boy” and foster kid who recently moved from nearby Rosewood. He has a checkered past that includes computer hacking. Before moving, he broke up with his girlfriend, Hannah.
Miranda Collins (Nicole Gale Anderson) is also a foster kid. Feisty and fiercely independent, she relies on her wits to cover her emotional scars. Caleb learns that she can be a fierce and loyal friend if you can break through her tough exterior.
Raymond Collins (Steven Cabral) is Miranda’s uncle and only living relative. Handsome and guarded, he owns a local funeral home and may know more about the town’s dark history than he shares. Raymond is cold and unwelcoming when he first encounters Miranda.
Remy Beaumont (Britne Oldford) is a girl who can fit in anywhere — but doesn’t belong to any one crowd. She’s both inquisitive and determined to find out the truth about what’s going on. Her parents, Simon (Henry Simmons) and Terry Beaumont (Sophina Brown), are distrustful of out-of-towners. Terry serves in the military and recently returned home.
Olivia and Luke Matheson are twins. Olivia (Merritt Patterson) used to be a carefree and happy spirit. A former prom queen, she’s now struggling after the murder of her father. Her friends have turned their backs and she’s questioning what’s important and what no longer matters.
Formerly a popular kid, Luke (Brett Dier) is a brooding lone wolf with an old soul. He’s slow to trust but once his trust is earned, he’s extremely loyal.
Episode #10 — My Haunted Heart
Caleb finally has to clue Hanna in to some of what has been happening in Ravenswood when she shows up demanding to speak to Miranda about “stealing” him away. Luke and Olivia finally learn what really happened to their father and who was responsible. With the walls closing in around him, Dillon makes a drastic move. When Remy goes missing, the rest of “The Five” are desperate to rescue her, leading to an intense showdown with everyone’s lives in peril.
First aired: February 4, 2014.
