There’s no denying that whether it’s due to actual sparkage or her instinctual urge to maintain control over people who adore her, there’s a stronger connection between Alison Lauren DiLaurentis and Emily Fields than Ali and the other girls. Heather Hogan of AfterEllen fame stated it best when she pondered aloud about Emison’s relationship: “Is it love? Is it lust? Or is it just your standard “teenager rises from the grave and manipulates her lesbian friend into being her guard dog while she takes secret meetings in the woods wearing a wig and a mask of her own face”?” And although we don’t know for sure where these two ladies stand with one another and if Emily’s feelings for Alison’s are truly reciprocated, one thing remains clear: There’s a considerable lack of trust!
In fact, in a new preview trailer for Pretty Little Liars Season 5 Episode 12: “Taking This One to the Grave,” Alison snaps out of her self-absorbed daze when she realizes that Emily is not the same naive swimmer she knew long ago. The two ladies are hanging out in Em’s bedroom and having a heart-to-heart. Ali voices her concerns — namely, that the other Liars won’t permit Emily to remain friends with her — but Emily assures Alison that she can make her own decisions, thank you very much. But when Emily exits the room to brew Ali some chamomile tea, Alison starts goes through her bestie’s phone and discovers that the entire evening has been a ruse to distract her while Hanna and Spencer carry out a top-secret undercover mission.
“I’m A, right?” she demands. “I don’t know. Are you?” Emily retorts. Eavesdrop on their tense conversation in the Pretty Little Liars #FataleFinale clip below, then hit the comments telling us if you think Alison is the infamous Rosewood stalker!
