Ah crap. Here we go. Paige analysis time.
“Maybe we already have.” Look at the look on Paige’s face in that fourth gif. The one where Emily is still speaking. She’s in disbelief. Why?
Emily. Who she wanted so badly to be with, but couldn’t because she was scared. She screwed up, bullying her. Then again being too afraid to be out. Then again trying to kiss her, and then again when Emily was drugged. Paige keep’s ‘messing up’ or so she thinks.
Then when they did get together, it was always Maya, always, in the background of Emily’s mind. The dead girlfriend she couldn’t compete with.
Then Shauna, and not telling Emily about her.
Plus, Nate or whatever the fuck his name was. A. All of these things in their way. Paige has been dreaming all this time, like last week when she talked about Stanford.
Now though… now Emily screwed up. Emily screwed up because she wants to be with her, and suddenly… Paige doesn’t have to dream anymore. Because all this time they haven’t been in ‘real life’ they’ve been in this weird limbo between horror movie and high school romance. It’s not real though.
“It was like a dream.”
But now Paige is waking up. She’s waking up and realizing that for once, waking up doesn’t mean getting her love yanked away from her. Emily did something COMPLETELY STUPID. Just for her.
What is Paige known for? Doing things that are COMPLETELY STUPID just for Emily. Remember how last week was a rehash of the ‘if i say I’m gay’ scene.
This. This season is them on stable ground. THEY ARE FINALLY EVEN. AND PAIGE KNOWS THIS NOW.
Its not a dream.
“Hey. Maybe we already have.”
Maybe we already have started a real life, says Paige McCullers. Maybe our real life together started happening before we noticed.
HEY WINDY! I get it now, why that writer said he doesn’t believe that Paige and Emily are soul mates. Because that takes away from their relationship. They had to work for what they have, just like any adult relationship. He probably doesn’t believe in soul mates. He probably believes that real love grows. Like their’s did.
