Things got pretty tangled during the mid-season finale of Ravenswood. We found out that Original Caleb and Original Miranda, two of the first victims of The Curse in 1918, were in love and married.
Does that mean our Caleb (Tyler Blackburn) and Miranda (Nicole Gale Anderson) will fall in love, too? And more importantly, what does this mean for Caleb and Hanna (Ashley Benson)? Showrunner Marlene King recently weighed in on the Team Haleb vs. Team Mirleb shipper debate.
“Can I be team OriginalMirleb and Haleb?” Marlene asked on Twitter last night, after a fan sent the shipper ultimatum her way. We don’t know Marlene — you tell us. We have to admit: Original Caleb and Original Miranda were pretty darn cute with their handwritten vows and their big hats. But, so were Caleb and Hanna, who used their phone convo in the midseason finale to plan an evening of take-out and teddy bear-like cuddling. However, then the interaction between Caleb and Miranda muddled things…
In past episodes, Miranda has admitted “an attachment” to Caleb, but in “Scared to Death,” Caleb seemed to return the sentiment. When he was temporarily dead and able to touch Miranda, he put his hand on her cheek and told her, “I can’t explain it, but it feels right being here with you.” Yikes! We love Miranda, but remember the teddy bears, Caleb?!
Given that Caleb will be back in Rosewood for the Pretty Little Liars winter premiere, and that Hanna will be visiting Ravenswood in Season 1, Episode 10, we’re not giving up hope that these two are still endgame — it’s just hard to argue with destiny.
Who do you ship? Do you think Caleb has developed feelings for Miranda, or was it just the head wound talking? Sound off in the comments below!
Catch the winter premiere of Ravenswood on January 7, 2014 at 9 p.m. ET following Pretty Little Liars on ABC Family.
