In a 30-second clip from Tuesday’s episode, as featured on TVLine.com, Emily approaches Paige in the locker room. It seems that Paige left school early because she “wasn’t feeling well.” Translation: Paige couldn’t stand to be in the same room as Alison.
“I know she’s your friend, but even being in the same room as her makes me feel sick,” Paige tells Em. Emily tells Paige that, by leaving school, Paige is allowing Ali to still have power over her. Paige agrees, which only makes Em more insistent.
“You’re one of the bravest people I know,” Emily tells Paige fiercely, “and I’m not going to let you forget that.” Cue Paige’s teary eyes — and ours, too.
Um, these two are kind of amazing together. After Paige’s betrayal of Emily’s trust at the end of Season 4, we were worried that these two might not be able to work things out, but, if the Paily scenes this season have told us anything, it’s that these two still have very strong feelings for one another. The question is: will Ali’s return, and her relationship with Emily, be enough to prevent Paily from acting on those feelings again?
Do you think Paige and Emily will get back together? Sounds off in the comments below!
