Emaya fans might have some satisfaction in Pretty Little Liars Season 3 after all. Though no one is rising from the dead just yet, Shay Mitchell (Emily) told us that Emily will be having some serious trouble moving on from Maya (Bianca Lawson).
During Wetpaint Entertainment’s recent visit to the PLL set, Shay addressed a popular concern among fans: Will Emily jump into another relationship too soon? Not to worry! “Emily isn’t really wanting to jump right back into that whole dating thing again,” says Shay.
But what about Paige (Lindsey Shaw), who made a surprise appearance in Emily’s life late in Season 2? “Yes, her and Paige had something before and they were dating for a little bit. But she’s lost her girlfriend,” says Shay, “and so what I think she needs is just emotional support from a friend more so than from a girlfriend or somebody that wants a relationship. So I think Emily's like treading the waters very carefully right now.”
We’d also heard some uncomfortable rumors that Emily might be attracted to boys again, but Shay assured us that, “as far as right now is concerned, no.”
For now, Emily will be dealing with a different kind of grief. “It’s also important to show that life does go on. So [Emaya fans] have to understand that as well, but Maya is definitely a very special character.”
What do you think, Emaya fans? Are you satisfied with these answers?
