I am proud to present the first #WCW showdown for Talk Nerdy With Us and in honor of last night’s Pretty Little Liars episode I bring you The Battle of the Exes: Maya versus Paige.
Let me introduce to you, Maya St. Germain (RIP), a transfer student to Rosewood High and Emily’s first girlfriend who helped her come to terms with her sexuality.
We always knew Maya was a badass from the moment she got to Rosewood. Anyone remember her offering our innocent Emily some recreational marijuana? Fast forward to Maya being shipped off to rehab for drugs. Paige didn’t do them drugs!
Paige however did try to drown our girl…
After Maya’s stint in rehab she returned, only for Emily to find that she was still using and instead of trying to battle her addiction, she ran away and abandoned Emily. We all know that Paige McCullers never backed down from a fight she stuck by Emily despite all the crAzy drama (I’m still hoping she comes back, don’t ruin my dream).
When Paige comes to terms with her sexuality she takes Emily out on a date where she helps the swimmer break out of her shell and get on stage to sing karaoke. We see those heart eyes Paige.
When Maya returns to Rosewood and learns that Emily’s mom has gotten better about having a gay daughter Maya seems to be understanding and supportive until they go to dinner and Maya decides to make everyone feel uncomfortable with some snide comments.
We can’t forget Maya’s website though, essentially her online diary where she posted videos and confessionals about her relationship with Emily and how much she loved her. Deep down we know she was a good person.
Here’s the one that seals the deal, Paige’s constant presence in Emily’s life as they fight A and she doesn’t let her do it alone either, despite how much Emily tried to shield her from it. All she wanted to do was protect her girl, we can’t blame her for that. In my book, Paige and Emily are end game.
So who do you think was best for Emily? Maya ‘badass’ St. Germain or Paige ‘hearteyes’ McCullers. Vote below and tweet us your answer!
