Everyone has their favorite Spoby moment, even Pretty Little Liars showrunner Marlene King. She may be the puppet master behind the whole thing, but that doesn’t mean she doesn’t ship Spoby like the rest of us. What did she say was her favorite Spoby scene?

“Scrabble. First kiss. Motel sex,” she tweeted in response to a fan question. Is it just us, or is that the most brilliantly concise timeline of the Spoby romance ever? Marlene really is a genius.

And, might we say, excellent picks? How great was it when Toby beat Spence’s word total in that Scrabble scene? (And who didn’t check out Toby’s abs along with Spence?) In the same ep, we get Spoby’s first kiss, a scene that includes Toby’s excellent line: “To be honest, it was really fun to kick your ass at Scrabble.” Word game flirting is the best!

The motel sex scene from the Season 3 finale called back perfectly to the Scrabble stakeout when these two first realized they had feelings for one another. It was a nice throwback to Season 1, while still feeling natural with what was going on in Season 3. With all of the Spoby drama that happens on this show, it’s nice to know we’ll always have that sketchy motel.

Which Spoby scene is your favorite? Let us know in the comments below!
