What Is Cal Doing in Sullivan’s Crossing?


As we delve three episodes deep into the intriguing world of Sullivan’s Crossing, the enigmatic Cal, portrayed by the ever-charismatic Chad Michael Murray, remains a bit of a mystery. Beyond his strikingly impressive mane, all we’ve gleaned is that he’s on the run from something. The question that lingers, however, is what exactly?

In a sneak peek from the forthcoming episode, we witness Cal and Maggie sharing a moment of awe as they bear witness to the enduring love story of Frank and Edna, a testament to what true partnership can be.

Firstly, it’s abundantly clear that Frank and Edna exemplify relationship goals par excellence. Their bond is nothing short of inspiring.


Secondly, signs are burgeoning that Cal and Maggie are swiftly falling under each other’s spell, entangled in a burgeoning romance.

Lastly, we receive confirmation that Cal hails from the bustling streets of New York—a detail astutely deduced by Maggie upon glimpsing his license plate. This revelation raises intriguing possibilities. Is he a doctor? Perhaps a detective?

While this disclosure doesn’t shed an abundance of light on Cal’s past, if we were to indulge in a touch of television speculation, one might posit that he might have been an artist navigating the vast expanse of the urban art scene.

In an insightful interview with Parade, Murray tantalizingly hinted at what lies ahead for his character. Cal, it seems, assumes the role of an unwavering pillar of support in Maggie’s life. He stands firm, a beacon of consistency, an anchor amidst life’s unpredictable currents.

Yet, Cal’s own history has been etched with trials as formidable as one might imagine. A turbulent past, laden with scars that demand mending before he can embark on a journey of true healing and growth, lies at the heart of his narrative. Brace yourselves for a tapestry of revelations that promise to intrigue and astonish.

As an aside, let’s hope none of these revelations involve Cal bidding farewell to his glorious mane of hair. We’re on board for the ride, as long as the locks remain intact!

For those eager to embark on this captivating journey, catch Sullivan’s Crossing airing at 8 p.m. ET on The CW. The unfolding narrative promises to be nothing short of enthralling.
