The photo above shows Sydney in Episode 3, and she does seem to be all smiles around Emily, so we're not ruling out that they have a connection. However, in the photo to the left, from Episode 5, we see Sydney with Paige, no Em in sight.
Perhaps even more tellingly, in this photo from Episode 5 we see Em and Ali holding hands while watching something shocking. We kind of have a hard time seeing Emily fall for someone else while both Ali and Paige are in the picture, but we totally could see Paige turning to the hot newbie for comfort now that Ali is back in Em's life.
Of course, we could also be interpreting these photos totally wrong. All we really know is this new girl is bound to cause trouble. Doesn't everyone?
Are you excited to meet Sydney? Let us know in the comments below!
