"The cool thing about this season is that, because Ali is alive, there are now five of us working together,” Lucy said, making our hearts soar. We love when our girls work together, and it makes us happy to hear that Ali will be a team player — at least for a bit. We’re eventually hoping for some Machiavellian-like power struggles between Spencer and Ali for the Team Liar leadership role. But, maybe that’s just us and our lust for power dynamic-driven drama?
At least in the short term, it seems there will be a honeymoon period for the Liars and their not-dead bestie. Spencer, Aria, Hanna, and Em are desperate to keep track of their friend this time. Lucy said: "Now that they know she’s alive, it's about grabbing onto her and not losing her again because they obviously know she disappeared for a reason — now they need to know what that reason is. On to the next mystery!" The “A” game is afoot!
It does seem that one Liars’ emotions surrounding Ali’s return will be more complex than the others’. We’re talking about Emily of course, who was kinda, maybe in love with Ali before her death. Will Ali’s return stir up some of those old feelings? It sounds possible, judging by the winter premiere’s episode synopsis: “Emily has trouble dealing with how she feels about Alison being alive.” Drama!
Do you think Alison will be part of the team in Season 4B? How will Emily react to her return? Sound off in the comments below!
