'The Lying Game' Winter Premiere Recap: Emma Receives A Threatening Letter

Mon, January 2, 2012 10:05pm EST by 2 Comments

Emma & Ethan’s relationship was tested as more secrets emerged on the Jan. 2 winter premiere.

Picking up immediately where the summer finale left off, the Jan. 2 winter premiere of The Lying Game set the stage for a dramatic — and ridiculously confusing — second half of the season. For starters, Emma’s (Alexandra Chando) mystery party crasher turned out not to be the Annie Hobbs we were all expecting, but rather Annie “Rebecca” Sewell (Charisma Carpenter), who also happens to be Char’s (Kirsten Prout) aunt.

So why did Rebecca come back to Phoenix? Why did she change her name from Annie? And how is she connected to Annie Hobbs? None of these questions were answered in the premiere, but we do know Rebecca’s got a hell of a past with Alec (Adrian Pasdar) and Ted (Andy Buckley.) In fact, unless I’m completely insane, I think I even saw a little spark between Rebecca and Alec.

I’d also like to take a moment to express my love for Char’s mom, Phyllis (Sydney Barrosse). What a crazy lady! She was none too pleased to see Rebecca back in town, and she gave her the most Real Housewives-esque greeting I have ever seen. She was drunk, she was glamorous, and she totally called her a bitch under her breath. Ladies and gentlemen, I am Team Phyllis.

Creepy Justin (Randy Wayne) got even creepier this week after Laurel (Allie Gonino) revealed that she lost his mother’s bracelet. This launched Justin into a tearful speech about how his mother was wearing it the day she died, and as much as I’d love to sympathize with him, there’s just something about Justin I still don’t trust.

And what about that looming question we had at the end of the summer finale: Is Sutton dead? We didn’t exactly get our answer, but we do know that her car was found at the bottom of the lake — and neither she nor her mysterious passenger were inside.

Adding to the mystery of it all, Emma received a horrifying note at the end of the episode: “Keep on being Sutton… or you’re next.”

It’s theory time: Is Sutton alive, and if so, where is she? What’s Rebecca’s connection to Annie? And, of course, who sent Emma that chilling threat?

Ok I have to say that everything that happens that is soo spine tickling, has me thinking that this ties back to Alec. He is just so in Sutton’s life. Not to forget Emma’s life to.
