With Alison DiLaurentis (Sasha Pieterse) alive, those shipping Emily Fields (Shay Mitchell) and Paige McCullers (Lindsey Shaw) are shaking in their booties at the prospect of their beloved Paily breaking up so that Em and Ali can rekindle their old romance. But we are here to give you a little relief. What did showrunner Marlene King have to say about Paige’s future on the show?
Well, when a fan informed her that everyone wants Paige to be in Season 5 of the ABC Family series, invoking #TheShawMustGoOn, Marlene responded with some exciting news. “That’s the plan!” she said. Phew, at least Paige doesn’t seem to be going anywhere anytime soon.
In the Season 4 summer season, Paige and Emily had a mixed time, but overall they've come out of it strong. They were super stoked about the possibility of going to Stanford together, but with Emily's injury putting a stop to her swimming career, that dream seems dead in the water. That caused a rift as the girls started thinking about how hard it would be to stay to together if they ended up at different colleges, but they've decided not to let worry keep them apart. With a love this strong, even a not-so-dead former crush will be hard-pressed to come between them.
While we’re not sure how the dynamic between the Little Liars and their significant others will change now that Ali is back in the land of the living, our fingers are crossed for Paily to stay together forever — or at least through Season 5.
