Are you as eager to see the showdown between Pretty Little Liars’ Alison DiLaurentis (Sasha Pieterse) and Paige McCullers (Lindsey Shaw) as we are? The two characters hate one another, perhaps justifiably so. Ali was a total biatch to Paige before she faked her death, and Paige recently tattled to the police about Ali’s whereabouts. Basically, when these two meet, cities may crumble. When will this epic event go down?
According to showrunner Marlene King’s tweet, the first “Paige/Alison face off” is being filmed right now, which means the scene will fall in the 100th episode — aka Season 5, Episode 5 — which is totally fitting. The installment is sure to be full of dramatic moments, and this one stands to be mega-explosive. Not only do these two have past incidents as a bone of contention, but they could get territorial over Emily. Until recently, Paige and Ems were in a serious relationship, which Emily ended when Paige went behind her back to tell the police Alison was still alive.
The relationship between Emily and Alison is a bit more complicated. Emily had a crush on her best friend before she disappeared, but it is less clear how Ali felt in return. The two shared a kiss once, but Alison later called it “practice for the real thing,” breaking Emily’s heart. Notably, Alison has since implied that Emily is the Liar she trusts most of all.
Whatever goes down between Paige and Alison when they meet again, all of this subtext will come with it. Basically, we can’t wait.
