Emily and Paige have been rocky on Pretty Little Liars since they realized their futures may not intertwine. But what does that mean for Season 4B? And how will Alison’s return affect the couple? Here’s a roundup of everything we know so far about Paily, Season 4B.

Emily struggles with her feelings for Ali

One of the most relevant, interesting, and immediate results of Ali’s return from the dead, is how Emily will react to her bestie’s not-deadness. Before Ali died, Emily had a hardcore crush on her some may even say she was in love with the blonde mean girl. Will Ali come between Paily? It’s hard to say, but the episode synopsis for the winter premiere tells us: “Emily has trouble dealing with how she feels about Alison being alive.” Drama!

Episode 19 has “some great Paily moments”

We’re really excited for black-and-white noir-inspired Season 4, Episode 19 (“Shadow Play”), partly because we’ve been promised some epic Paily scenes. According to writer Joseph Dougherty, “There are some great Paily moments in there. I think there are unexpected moments, and without digging too big a hole for myself, I think a lot of the Paily fans are going to be very satisfied by what we’re doing.” Sounds promising!

Paily scene in Episode 21

Whatever goes down between Paily in Season 4B, they will still be hanging out come Episode 21. PLL writer Jonell Lennon posted a lovely pic of Paily eating lunch together at Rosewood High. “Wonder what these two are talking about. #Paily #421,” tweeted Jonell. The photo doesn’t give us much to go on plot-wise, but at least we know Paily will have plot well into the season.
