See it's an awkward situation (4)
I believe the answer is:
I believe this clue is a double definition.
'see' is the first definition.
(to spot is to notice or catch sight of)
'an awkward situation' is the second definition.
(I've seen this before)
'it's' acts as a link.
(Other definitions for spot that I've seen before include "20 [MARK]" , "clock" , "Notice - fictional puppy" , "moral flaw" , "Small round mark" .)
