His first appearance on the show will be in the May 22 episode, which also happens to be the season 3 finale. He’s also expected to return for season 4! We are so here for this.
More details about his character are being kept under wraps. Could Tyler be playing the other man Jane has been in love with? The narrator has alluded to this mysterious man and said we would meet him one day. Maybe it will sooner rather than later!
