Emily Fields (Shay Mitchell) and girlfriend Paige McCullers (Lindsey Shaw) are facing some confusing times ahead on Pretty Little Liars, especially now that Alison DiLaurentis has unexpectedly returned from the dead. But a recent tweet from showrunner Marlene King has us hoping that this isn’t the end for the fan-favorite couple.

Marlene gave Paily shippers an early Christmas  present with news that Pretty Little Liars fans will be getting a sex scene. Marlene simply responded “Yes” to the tweet: “Will Paily ever get a sex scene? Not fair considering Ezria got an office sex scene.” Well, it surely seems like these two aren’t ready to give up on their relationship just yet.

Things got rocky between Paige and Emily in Season 4A when the teenagers realized that they would probably be on different sides of the country for the next four years and possibly beyond. The two cooled things down for a bit, before Em realized that even though she couldn’t ensure what would happen in the future she knows that she wants to be with Paige now. Aww.

But it’s not all hearts and rainbows for the imminent future. Now that Ali is back from the dead, Emily “has trouble dealing with how she feels about Alison being alive,” according to the synopsis for the winter premiere. Emily had a serious crush on her former bestie. Now that she’s back, who knows what could happen. Is this Paily sex scene before Emily figures out how she feels about this whole situation or after? Our Paily-shipping hearts can’t take the suspense!

Are you excited to hear about the upcoming Paily sex scene? Do you think their relationship will survive Ali’s return? Sound off in the comments below!
