Listen up, Emison fans (and cover your ears, Paily shippers). There may be a future for Emily (Shay Mitchell) and Alison (Sasha Pieterse) on Pretty Little Liars. However, just how big that hope is depends on who you ask.

In a chat with E! Online, Sasha offered up some of her insights into Ali’s mind, and she seems to think Emily’s feelings aren’t as one-sided as we’ve been led to believe (up until very recently). “I think she really does love Emily and feels close to her and still feels that connection,” Sasha speculates. “And I honestly do feel that Alison had real feelings for her.”

However, Shay doesn’t think Ali’s quite as genuine as Sasha does. “I think Ali was playing,” she says, though she believes Emily’s feelings were certainly very real and aren’t gone. “For Emily, 100 percent it’s real, and I don’t think it ever went away, even when she was supposed to be dead for a little while.”

As for whether viewers will get to see more Emison in action, Shay and Sasha either don’t know or aren’t telling. “That’s a [creators’] question,” Shay hedges. “But I’m excited to see where Emily and Ali’s relationship goes, especially knowing where it left off.”

That would certainly please Emison shippers, whose presence Shay’s very clearly aware of. “I’m very excited for #Emison,” she adds. “Gotta use my hashtags right!”
