Is Ali Still the Queen of Mean?

Alison DiLaurentis used to rule the halls of Rosewood High as the Queen of Mean, making enemies wherever she went.  Ali now claims she wants to change.  Can she really change her ways?

Ali seems sincere when she says she wants to make amends for everything she’s done.  And she was devastated to read the hateful messages people left online when she went missing.  She took a huge step in apologizing to Paige for everything she did to her.  Unfortunately, in “Miss Me x 100” there were some signs that changing is going to be a struggle for Ali.

The Ali versus Mona catfight:  

Mona threw the first punch and got what she wanted with the recording of Ali slapping her.  Clearly, Mona manipulated the situation to her advantage.  She’ll do anything to get rid of Ali.  And Ali did try to end the fight by saying that they don’t have to do this.   

However, Ali was pretty quick with her threat to destroy Mona and make her “Loser Mona” again.  Even though Mona tortured and tormented Hanna, Aria, Spencer, and Emily, those girls didn’t really do much to Mona in retaliation.  Maybe old habits are harder to break than Ali thinks.

Ali’s Romantic Interest in Emily (Emison):

Ali said Emily’s feelings for her weren’t one-sided.  Contrary to what she said in the past, kissing Emily wasn’t just practice for the real thing with boys.  And she and Emily seem to be interested in starting up a relationship.

However, the timing of Ali’s interest is a little bit suspicious.  It’s only after Emily is getting ready to meet up with Paige, and Alison is not invited to join them, that Ali decides to tell Emily that she is interested in her.  And Ali reaches out to Emily again, after her friends are furious at her for lying to them about the details of the Mona confrontation. 

This sort of feels like what Ali did to Emily a few years ago, when Ali would toy with Emily’s feelings just to have power and control over her friends.

Do you think Ali has really changed for the better or do you think Emily is heading for heartbreak soon?
