So much of Ravenswood is still shrouded in mystery, but here’s what we do know: Miranda is a 17-year-old foster kid described as “feisty, disarming, and unconventionally attractive.” You know what else she’s described as? Caleb’s freaking “kindred soul.” Sounds intense, we know (and like these two have a lot in common).
The plot synopsis for the Ravenswood pilot chooses a subtler turn of phrase, describing Miranda as Caleb’s “new pal” - albeit a new pal he decides to stay in Ravenswood post-PLL Halloween special to help out. And get this? Caleb meets Miranda’s family in the very first ep! (He didn’t meet Hanna’s mom for at least a few episodes.) According to the synopsis, Caleb begins to rethink his decision to stay in Ravenswood after meeting Miranda’s “cold and unwelcoming uncle Raymond.” Ouch. Maybe it is best to wait a few episodes before introducing the boy to the family.
In all seriousness, though, at this point, it seems that Caleb and Miranda are just fast friends and sleuthing partners who, “unnerved by what they witnessed the night of the party, and besieged by strange and supernatural occurrences… begin to investigate this bizarre town.” However, we’ve seen enough television to know how quickly romance can ensue between mystery-solving partners. Caleb and Miranda seem to just be friends… for now. After all, nothing encourages snuggling like hanging out in spooky cemeteries (just ask Buffy).
A huge piece of this romance puzzle is obviously Hanna who, as of right now, is in a committed, loving relationship with our guy Caleb. These two have no intentions of splitting up (in fact, Caleb is one his way to Ravenswood right now — longest hiatus bus ride ever — to help out Hanna), so their separation is going to be some intense romantic whiplash. We’ll have to wait to see how they leave things when Caleb makes his official PLL departure in Season 4, Episode 14: “Who’s in the Box” (aka the winter premiere). However Haleb does part ways, Marlene has said “the door is open” for Caleb’s return to Rosewood.
Do you think Caleb and Miranda will get together? How do you think Haleb will leaves things? Sound off in the comments below!
