Parental sighting! We know it’s rare in Rosewood, but we’ll see an adult showing concern and taking actual action in Tuesday’s episode of PLL. The adult in question is Emily’s mom, whom we see in this minute-long video walking with her daughter through the halls of Rosewood High. It seems Pam has a parent-teacher conference with one of Em’s teachers — the kind who doesn’t know how to use Skype.
While at school, Pam spots the Liars giving Emily a meaningful look (code for: Team Liar meeting!), and decides to invite them all over for dinner — especially Alison. Emily points out that Ali was just over, but Pam responds: “I know, but we didn’t really get a chance to talk. And with everything’s Alison’s been through, I just wanted her to know that, if she needs an ear that’s attached to an adult, I’m here for her.”
This is actually totally reasonable and sweet, the kind of action you’d expect any empathetic adult might take. Are we going to have to reconsider Mama Marin’s spot as Best Rosewood Parental? We may have to if Pam keeps this sort of thing up...
