The show is going to try and make Alison rude behavior to Paige seem like jealously about Emily and maybe it is a little bit that comment alison made about how emily has real memories with paige did kinda stick with me but I dont know I just feel like alison being rude to paige was more then just jealously like maybe alison doesnt like that paige wont fall for her bull crap or something I dont know I just think it was more then just jealously that made Alison act that way towards Paige
You know, I honestly have mixed feelings. On one hand, I think the majority of it is jealousy, but I absolutely concede there’s probably something else to it too.
I was just gif’ing the scene where Paige says “you were unforgettable” and Alison says “thank you” and I think that speaks volumes. Alison’s entire mission in life was to be unforgettable and she never understood that being unforgettable isn’t always a good thing. There are people like Mother Theresa who are unforgettable and that’s important and great. There are people like Hitler who were also unforgettable and that is obviously not good.
And I’m not sure Alison was ever able to differentiate. I think she just wanted to be unforgettable. She didn’t want to be forgotten by her friends or her family or Rosewood. She didn’t care how she was, just that she wanted to be. I think she genuinely thought it was a compliment or something good when Paige said that and when Paige says that wasn’t a compliment, for me, I saw Alison almost internally recoil at that because she had no idea.
I also think Alison sees a girl who used to hate herself but has overcome that hatred and I do think Alison is really jealous of that. I think that’s why I always have a slight bit of sympathy for Alison because I do think she is full of self-loathing and to hate yourself that much, it makes you do things you later regret.
So I’m really torn >.<
