Still seeing people say Emily was reluctant to go to Stanford. Most Paige criticisms I can rebut because I know what the argument is, but this one I have literally no idea where they are getting it from.
"I wanna go. I wanna be with you. I really love you."
Even 409 is a stretch because Emily is guilty of putting off her conversation with Paige.
In 404, Emily tells pair the doctor she can’t swim for a while. Then she starts to say something, which is believed to be the “what if” talk, but stops herself and asks Paige for a kiss instead.
It doesn’t play out on screen until 409 with the gift, but Paige has been trying to stay optimistic for Emily while Emily continues to walk through the hell A has created.
Yeah, the gift didn’t work exactly like Emily would have liked but the coach was still willing to train her.
