Ah, Paige McCullers (Lindsey Shaw), the personification of practical perfection in a wasteland of one-dimensional supporting lesbian characters. Over the course of four seasons on Pretty Little Liars she has grown from an insecure, aggressive, slightly terrifying competitor with self-destructive homophobic tendencies to a confident, assertive, slightly terrifying competitor just riding her rainbow chopper down Main Street with her girlfriend wrapped around her. So in honor of tonight’s Pretty Little Hoedown, we are counting down Paige McCullers’ 20 most McCullers moments.
20. Those bangs
You know when she went to the salon for that haircut, she was just like, “Whatever thing you can do to make me look the most severe, do that. Like how you would cut a girl’s hair if she had a hockey penalty named after her.”
19. Baptizing Emily Fields
“I baptize you in the name of heterosexuality, gold medals, and not wanting to kiss your face! Buried with Alison DiLaurentis in baptism and raised to walk in my shadow for always!”
18. Making the move at the exact wrong time
Like when Maya was getting murdered in her own backyard.
17. Karaoke is for lovers
Paige McCullers is a paradox. So of course season one Paige would totally take you on the best date ever — in the middle of the woods in the middle of the night so no one would see you there together.
16. Channeling Katniss Everdeen
If you’re going to threaten to kill anyone who hurts your girlfriend in the Hunger Games that are her every day life, you might as well dress the part.
