Pretty Little Liars Season 1 Flashback: Paige Kisses Emily
It's hard to believe, but Pretty Little Liars has been around for four and a half seasons. That's a lot of episodes packed full of thrills, chills, and unbeatable romance. Every week on Flashback Friday we like to look back at a memorable moment from seasons past. Today, we're going to take a walk down memory lane with Emily (Shay Mitchell) and Paige (Lindsey Shaw).
We're rewinding all the way back to Season 1, Episode 17: "The New Normal," when Paige kissed Emily for the first time. It was quite a surprise!
If you've blocked it out, the beginning of Paige and Emily's relationship was nowhere near as endearing or healthy as their romance has become. In fact, Paige was still closeted at the time, and at first took her conflicted, pained feelings for Emily out by bullying her.
In Season 1, Episode 17, we met Paige's awful homophobe of a father, and suddenly her attitude started to make more sense. And then, when she planted her lips on Emily's everything came together, and suddenly she was a fascinating, tragic character, instead of just a bully.
