Pretty Little Liars’ Alison DiLaurentis (Sasha Pieterse) has always been a mysterious character, and that mysteriousness extends to her sexuality. She once kissed Emily, but later cruelly said it was just for practice. Was that kiss another part of Ali’s manipulations or did she feel something more than friendship for Emily? PLL showrunner Marlene King weighed in on Ali’s sexuality during her recent Reddit AMA...
When asked by one Reddit user if Ali was straight, Marlene responded: “That's such a great question. We've had a lot of conversation about that in the writer's room. It's a question that we've asked ourselves a lot this season. And the answer to that question will come this season.”
Sounds good to us! We also have questions about Ali’s sexuality — it’s another aspect of Ali’s identity that could be a lie, and we need to figure this girl out. We’re guessing the subject might come up in the exploration of the Ali/Emily/Paige love triangle that’s been teased to take place in Season 5. Also on the docket for Ali’s storyline this season: a rumored kiss with Caleb. With Ali, we’re never sure why she does things: does she kiss Emily and maybe Caleb because she feels an attraction to them, does she do it as a way to manipulate them and others, or is it a combination of both? We can’t wait to explore these questions in Season 5!
