4. Haleb in the Woods – When Hanna and Caleb come home from school they are welcomed by a not so pleased Ashley. She had found Caleb’s backpack in the basement and pieced together that Hanna had Caleb staying without her knowledge. Ashley kicks Caleb out and he leaves, but she hadn’t expected Hanna to follow him out. With no where else to go Hanna and Caleb spent the night camping out in the woods. Caleb’s surpised by Hanna’s skills when it comes to camping and that caused the two to begin opening up with each other; Hanna mentioned her past weight problem and Caleb discussed foster care. Gaining comfort, trust and feeling more intimate while sharing stories the two share a passionate kiss which leads to them sharing their first night together. The next day Hanna comes home to change and is confronted by Ashley who had spent the night worring about her. Hanna snaps back at her though for being unsympathetic towards Caleb before once again storming off. Ashley realized she only had one choice; after a conversation between the two before dinner Ashley invited Caleb to stay in their guest room for the time being.
I just really enjoy watching the more intimate moments between characters. Not to also mention, Hanna and Caleb are my absolute favorite couple on the show and this was like the first moment were they connected on a more intimate level making this unbelievale sweet. And as much as I love the Haleb moment though the reason as to why this is so high on my list is becasue it was not only the first really real moment between Hanna and Caleb but it was also the first moment where Ashley realized how important Caleb is to Hanna. I mean Caleb ends up playing a large role in the Marin family, in a good way and this was the beginning of him not only being close with Hanna but also being more than just some boyfriend. He ends up being there for them during Ashley’s arrest, after the Dollhouse, and so much more. Hanna trusts Caleb wholeheatedly and Ashley trusts Hanna with Caleb and Caleb loves Hanna limitlessly.
