Pretty Little Liars’ Emily (Shay Mitchell) has not had an easy love life. Objects of her affection Alison and Maya both ended up dead and current girlfriend Paige (Lindsey Shaw) was kidnapped and held at gunpoint. A half season later,  Paige has managed to continue to evade death and Paily is going strong. Will there be a declaration of Emily’s love in the future? PLL showrunner Marlene King says...

“Watch 401,” Marlene tweeted yesterday in response to a fan question on the subject.

Now, we don’t want to jump to conclusions, but that seems like a confirmation that an “I love you” will be uttered in the season premiere. Either that or Paily breaks up so messily that we could never imagine the words ever being exchanged...but we like to stay positive.

We hope that the former is the case. Emily has had such a tough time of it, and Paige really proved herself in Season 3, overcoming her PTSD to search for “A.” Plus, with Ezria broken up for now and Haleb dealing with their collective betrayal of Caleb’s dad, we need a little love in Rosewood right now.

Do you want to see Emily tell Paige she loves her? Let us know in the comments below!
