How do they cope?… They set aside nights or afternoons for them to spend time together. For instances Friday night is always set aside for them to either go out together (dinner, live music, cinema, even karaoke) or to order take-out and slob out on the sofa together.
What’s wrong?… The arguments are mainly small things about dishes not being done or mess in the living. But really Hanna’s pregnancy and Paige telling that audience that she wants to spend her life with Spencer has caused Spencer to start thinking about the future, about marriage and kids, all of the stuff she’s suppose to want but doesn’t feel like she does and it’s freaking her out.
Paige tries to get close, but Spencer’s pushing. Why?… Spencer is starting to feel like her and Paige may have an expiration date on their relationship. That Paige is going to realise she wants all of that stuff (marriage, kids etc…) and will leave her. So she’s distancing herself to protect herself.
What does Paige do?… She can feel that something is wrong. Seriously wrong and she wants to fix it. So she tries to talk to Spencer, tries to find out what’s bothering her. But Spencer doesn’t want to talk.
One night they get into a huge argument, what happens?… They break up (again lol). Spencer ends the relationship and tells Paige to leave.
What is it about?… It’s starts about Paige not putting enough effort in around the house. She’s been having a bad day with her hip and spends the day relaxing, so when Spencer gets home from work there’s a mess in the living room and she just wants to order take out… Things get angry quickly, with Spencer accusing Paige of not caring enough and taking her for granted which Paige is offended by because she’s not doing it deliberately, she was just having a bad day… Things get really nasty when Paige (feeling under attack) mentions that it was Spencer’s stalker that injured her/ended her career and Spencer fires back that it was her friendship with Hanna which brought him into their lives… The fight ends up being about a lot of things But really it’s all about Spencer’s insecurities about the relationship.
Do they make up?… Yes of course they do. Unlike the last time Spencer ended things, Paige doesn’t just accept that it’s over and she fights for her girl.
What happens afterward?… Paige moves in with Shana for a bit (it would have been Hanna but it’s awkward because of the pregnancy) whilst she tries to fix her relationship with Spencer… Both of them use the time apart to work out what they really want.
Dude, Paige has so much swagger in that moment it’s unreal.
"Come on Emily. Take a walk on the wild side."
She just has so much confidence, something that up until that point we hadn’t really seen from Paige. And she’s being fun and silly and a little flirty. Just daring Emily to let loose and sing with abandon… It is so clear why Emily likes this girl and why Emily could and does fall in love with her.
Because this is the moment where Emily just completely falls for Paige, undoubtedly. I mean there were hints before that Emily felt a connection with Paige, but this is it. This is the moment they become something real.
Emily has been searching for Paige, her whole life she’s been waiting for this person. She didn’t know what she looked like, or what she sounded like, for a long time she didn’t even know that it would be a woman, but she’s known who she was looking for. And then suddenly there she is. Paige McCullers. This adorable, awkward, beautiful woman who is in so much pain but is still so perfect is standing right in front of her holding out a microphone saying come on, come and stand on this stage with me, sing with me, lets do something neither of us ever imagined doing. Lets start something epic.
Emily can’t say no to that because she can feel it, and she knows that no matter what happens after, this moment and this night is going to be with her forever.
It’s not hard to see why this happened…
Paige claimed a piece of Emily’s heart that night.
Thanks… Here you go….
