After the dramatic Pretty Little Liars Season 3 summer finale (Season 3, Episode 12: “The Lady Killer”), Emily (Shay Mitchell) and Paige (Lindsey Shaw) fans are wondering what will happen to their ship next.
Fortunately, Wetpaint Entertainment recently took part in a conference call with showrunner Marlene King, and she teased what's coming up for this tumultuous relationship.

Marlene warned that the season contains "equal drama for every [couple]," so you can't expect smooth sailing for Paige and Emily. However, it sounds like this time around their drama will have less to do with murder mysteries and "A," and more to do with the everyday struggles of being in a relationship.
"They have some great, sort of very grounded drama," Marlene explained. "What it's like to be a couple, and learning to trust ... Their relationship was, in some parts, based on original missteps. They just have real drama and issues to overcome that are natural to any kind of new relationship."
Well, Paige did kinda try to to drown Emily that one time, and then Emily's friend did accuse Paige of being evil, so we can see why they might have some trust issues. But from what we've seen of these two girls, we're pretty sure they'll both fight hard to make their relationship work.
