“@SleepintheGardn I love our new pet. Can we name it Toby? Oops... Did I say that? Yes. Yes I did. #Spandrew4Life,” Brandon cheekily captioned the snapshot of he and Troian with their arms around one another and holding a stuffed rodent. OK, that’s actually kind of funny. It’d be easier to worry about Andrew as a potential threat to Spoby if he wasn’t so gosh darn charming. Not to mention he has known Spence for nigh near forever and seems to genuinely care about her. And, let’s face it, he’s definitely seen her at her worst.
And we’re not the only ones who love Andrew=! Earlier this week, Troian shared the aforementioned hug picture with the caption: “#Spoby fans. Don't be jealous. @brandonwjones is back and I'm loving it.” Hard to argue with such unabashed sentiment. We’re totally looking forward to his return in Season 5, Episode 4, too.
So, what does this mean for Spoby? Probably nothing. Thus far, Spencer has never demonstrated that her feelings for Andrew are anything more than friendly. (Though she has been known to use his obvious affections for her to get something she wants. Poor, Andrew.) From what we’ve seen of Spoby in Season 5 so far, the couple seems surprisingly strong considering they spent so much of the end of Season 4 apart.
