Shay Mitchell Teases New Romance for Emily in PLL Season 7 (EXCLUSIVE)

Between losing her father and donating her eggs for a quick buck only to have them stolen by an anonymous psycho, it’s safe to say Emily Fields’ life post time jump has been woe central. While her friends juggle sizzling romances and exciting career opportunities, the down-on-her-luck bartender remains broke, lonely, and scared. Thus, when Alloy Entertainment caught up with Shay Mitchell at Freeform’s 2016 upfront presentation in New York City, we led off with most important question of all: Where’s the love for Em?

“Right? That’s what I was upset about!” Shay exclaimed, agreeing with our team. Judging by the actress’s immediate and honest response, it appears fans aren’t the only ones concerned about her character’s latest round of suffering. As though having to deal with yet another sadistic tormentor wasn’t stressful enough, she was almost squashed by a monster truck and found herself running into Sara Freakin’ Harvey all over Rosewood. The poor girl can’t seem to catch a break!

However, before you shed any more tears over Emily’s miserable existence just know better days lie ahead for our beloved swimmer. “I do think Emily will find some love — some type of love — this season,” Shay hinted ever so coyly. “With who? I can’t tell ya — you gotta stay tuned. But, um, yea, I think she’s going to have a little bit more upswing in the love department.”

Obviously, we weren’t about to let Shay off the hook that easily, especially after she had shared such a promising teaser. We pressed her for more details and even dropped Alison DiLaurentis’ name into mix. PLL’s season-six finale showed Emily standing by her friend’s side in her time of need while Ali’s duplicitous husband, Dr. Elliot Rollins, was busy betraying her — that has to mean something, right?

“I think whatever happens for those girls is going to be great,” Shay confessed. “You know, everyone is like ‘Emison endgame,’ and I can jump on that bandwagon.”
