“It’s complicated” might as well be the tagline for this series. No one on the show seems to know how to explain, well, anything, and that kind of makes sense: Ravenswood is one crazy place. And since tonight was the season finale, Ravenswood is (somehow) even crazier than usual. Or as Caleb would tell us, “it’s complicated.”
Hanna returns to Ravenswood for a surprise visit. Why didn’t she call Caleb? Because she likes surprises, duh. Caleb broke up with her, so the real reason she came was to beat up Miranda who she thinks is The Other Woman. When Caleb breaks the news to her that Miranda is dead, and better yet, that he can still see Miranda, she is bewildered. Maybe you don’t like surprises as much as you thought, Hanna! What makes the scene creepy– because this is Ravenswood, after all– is that halfway through the conversation between Hanna and Caleb, Miranda appears. “She thinks you’re crazy,” she tells Caleb. He takes the cue: “You know, for a while, I thought that I might be crazy, but I’m not.” Real convincing, Caleb.
This is hard for Hanna to hear. She was the one who told Caleb to stay in Ravenswood and take care of Miranda. Then she thought he was in love with Miranda. And now she finds out Miranda is dead. At this point, she’s back to liking Miranda and the urge to beat her up has subsided. Instead, she talks to Miranda, meaning she sits in an empty room and rambles on to seemingly no one. She explains why she thought Caleb was in love with the now-ghost, and Miranda hears this and gets excited. Miranda’s affection for Caleb is tough to watch because it’s not like she’s actively trying to take Caleb from Hanna– she likes Hanna and seems to want them to be together. I feel bad for her, but also am Team Hanna and Caleb Forever, so I don’t feel too bad.
