So How Do You Feel About Spencer and Caleb on Pretty Little Liars?

Spaleb spoiler alert!

Last week, it seemed like Pretty Little Liars was setting up a complicated, slow burn romance between Spencer and her best friend Hanna's ex, Caleb. So we weren’t prepared at all this week, for Hanna to ask Spencer about it point-blank, much less give them her blessing (sort of). And we sure weren’t prepared for Spencer and Caleb to get together in the same episode! Good Lorde, it should be criminal for two people to hold hands like that. Sigh.

We're not sure how to feel about Spaleb because on one hand, Hanna and Caleb, and Spencer and Toby were truly relationship goals. We mean, both couples have been through hell and back. They may have lost each other a few times, but they always managed to find their way back to each other. Until now. Maybe.

On the other hand, Hanna seems really happy with her fiancé and new life. Of course it would be a little weird for one of her best friends to date her first love, and there's Toby, who is still in the dark and has gotten closer to Caleb in the last five years. But they're all grown-ups now and can hopefully deal with this new development maturely.

When you think about it, Spencer and Caleb make sense too. They're both book smart and street smart. They're co-presidents of the no-judgment club. They complement each other: Caleb knows how to calm down a stressed Spencer (with eggs and burnt toast, apparently), while Spencer has no problem sharing her home, her precious time, and her darkest secrets with Caleb. Even her sister has noticed and grilled her about it, even when there was no definite it yet, while her mom clearly likes Caleb and trusts him enough to recruit him for her senatorial campaign.


Also, Spencer and Caleb's meet cute part deux is too adorable. Running into each other in Madrid, sneaking into a park with some sangria, and watching the sunrise? Stuff our dreams are made of!

Okay, so it feels like we're cheating on Spoby and Haleb for swooning over Spaleb—this is getting confusing—but can you blame us? Five years is a long time, and a lot really happened in the five-year jump. Who knew that Spencer and Caleb had that kind of chemistry? They also have a whole lot of history, oh, they could be the greatest team that the world has ever seen. (Haha!)


But in all seriousness, we're excited to see what happens between Spencer and Caleb. It could be nothing, it could be something temporary, it could be something really special—it's all up to the writers of the show and the reaction from fans. Which brings us back to you: what do you think of Spaleb? Spill your feels in the comment section below or tweet us @candymagdotcom!

If you know me, and know me well, I am not the biggest fan of idyllic lifestyles. With a Type A personality, I act immediately upon whatever challenge that needs to be addressed. I actually enjoy keeping my mind preoccupied: doing university work in my favourite cafe then running errands around town, grocery shopping here, updating my accounts there, photocopying documents on the way down the street - all just in time before having a glass of champagne at the bar with my friends come evening.

And so, you could imagine my bewilderment when the next challenge to be faced was an extensive self-quarantine protocol. I didn’t know what to do when my greatest responsibility in this situation was to do nothing at all. My first few attempts to combat my consternation were very much rooted in distraction and imagination. My distractions involved conducting research, writing songs, calling family and friends, filming videos, and eating chocolate! My imaginations and fantasies were centred on travelling, shopping, even clubbing (which I rarely do) for when they find a cure to COVID-19. I did anything and everything that could be considered constructive in order to pass the time, mainly hoping I could just undertake the basic human necessities to survive - that is, eat and sleep the day through - until the next day comes, until the world is closer to becoming a better place, until quarantine ends, until my flight follows through, until I see my family and friends again.

Days in self-isolation and suspended flights turned to weeks and turned to months. By the third extension here in Spain where I study Fashion Business, I had to tell myself this shall be my new normal now, that I was blessed to be healthy, that I was tired of merely existing and missed what it was like to actually live - even if just within four walls. Little by little, I began to find significance in the simple occurrences of the day: the soft glare of the rising sun beaming golden streaks through my bedroom window upon waking up, the fragrance of freshly washed bed sheets that I had painstakingly hung to fit a relatively small clothes rack without crumpling them, the crunch and tanginess of warm toasted bread topped with raspberry marmalade, the buzzing sound of a phone call from home just waiting to be answered, to the caress of a fuzzy sweater to keep warm at night. I realised, “What pleasures to be enjoyed in the pause of slow living!” Through this continued pause, which I loathed at first, I began to appreciate each moment of the day rather than wish it would pass more swiftly, moments I had overlooked so often before the lockdown. I started to find that the challenge of self-isolation was never to pause both the regular routines of life as well as the positive emotions that came with these - as initially, I thought it meant to pause all happiness, so as to withstand a time of endurance in hopes for a better tomorrow, much like a form of delaying gratification. Life is just too fragile these days to delay gratification any further.

Life has paused, but it has not stopped. Believe that like any punctuation mark in a sentence, the pause will provide the right timing of things to take place. Till then, let us not waste our time waiting. Instead, we could be in the moment, seek substance in simplicity (that is, in what we already have), And enjoy the pleasure in pause. “Practice the Pause. When in doubt, pause. When angry, pause. When tired, pause. When stressed, pause. And when you pause, pray.”

They say time heals all wounds, but it has been ages - is heartbreak exempted?

I have forgotten when was the last time we shared a smile - the last time when I saw the glow in your eyes and the last time when you whispered an I love you to me. I have forgotten when, but here I am - writing to you again.

I do not know if you will read this or you will just add this one to my proses and poems that you left unread, but you see, I am still hoping. I am mailing the pain of us to the gods out there - hoping they can take the pain away. I should have gotten over you, but instead of forgetting and accepting our ending, I am writing about us in tissue sheets, carving about us on trees, telling about us on the back of my journals, hoping that a thousand or a million write ups about us, can make me forget about what happened.

I am writing, waiting for the point where I can no longer write anymore, for I have none to tell - but when? I have nothing in me anymore, but the memories of us - and no matter how hard I try put those to its own grave, the memories grow back like lilies in the swamp - painful and beautiful at the same time.

No matter how hard I try to silence those and put it at the back of my mind, those ring back, playing like the favorite song we used to listen. They say heartbreaks turn into poetry and that is what happening to us - but poetry should be dulcet and dreamy, why does ours sound like pain and agony? They say time heals all wounds, but it has been ages - is heartbreak exempted? Darling, I guess not.
