Plus, do you think Alec really killed Derek? The proof is in the texts.

With Ethan (Blair Redford) behind bars and a killer on the loose, tensions were running high on the Feb. 20 episode of The Lying Game — and Sutton (Alexandra Chando) decided to use the chaos as an opportunity to screw with Emma.

Pretending to be her sister, Sutton paid a visit to Ethan — who clearly hasn’t learned how to tell the difference between the twins — and told him that “she” slept with Thayer (Christian Alexander) while he was away.

To make matters even bitchier, Sutton later lied to Emma and told her she slept with Ethan while they were away at his ranch!

Meanwhile, Rebecca (Charisma Carpenter) began to grow suspicious of Alec (Adrian Pasdar), especially when someone texted her a picture of Alec literally attacking Derek (Ben Elliott) with a crow bar at the scene of his murder. (It looks like Phoenix has an “A” of its very own!) Alec was so shaken by this that he told the judge to drop the entire case on grounds of “insufficient evidence.”

Laurel (Allie Gonino) and Baz (Adam Brooks) also got their flirt on when they learned their band was accepted as an alternate performer at Coachella! I won’t even discuss how crazy that is — I’ll just enjoy how adorable these two are together. While I love Randy Wayne, you can’t deny Laurel and Baz work so much better together.

Let’s figure this out, shall we? Do you think Alec really killed Derek? Is Rebecca working against him? And how much do you hate Sutton now? See you in the comments section!
