Are Spencer & Caleb Dating on ‘Pretty Little Liars’?
Spencer and Caleb made things official in Season 6, Episode 13 "The Gloves Are On" when Spencer confessed her feelings for Caleb to Hanna, one-half of the beloved ship Haleb, and found comfort in Caleb's lips at the end of the episode.
I know why fans are upset. According to the Gretchen Weiners' School of Feminism, what Spencer and Caleb did on that couch was so not cool -- except, it totally was cool. Instead of acting on her feelings which she totally had the right to doshe went to Hanna first. Spencer told Hanna how she felt. That's what I love about "Pretty Little Liars. It's never stooped to petty relationship drama. It's always been a show about a group of young women rising above the sh-t that the patriarchy throws at them.
If Hanna really didn't want Spencer to be with Caleb, she could have told her.
