But will Sutton & Thayer be able to stop the wedding in time? Only one more week till the epic finale!

Rebecca (Charisma Capenter) has spent the past few weeks manipulating the fair people of Phoenix, and on the Feb. 27 episode of The Lying Game, she finally got the ultimate prize: a ring from Alec (Adrian Pasdar)! But is he really the guy she has her heart set on?


Sutton (Alexandra Chando) and Thayer (Christian Alexander) got their snoop on this week, and thanks to a loose-lipped housekeeper — who should totally be fired, by the way — they found out Rebecca keeps a photo of her “true love” inside her locket. And whose picture do you think they found when they finally cracked that puppy open? Ted (Andy Buckley)!

Without even knowing about the locket, Kristin (Helen Slater) confronted Ted about his relationship with Rebecca, which led to a shocking revelation: Remember that mysterious phone call he got while operating on Justin’s (Randy Wayne) mom? It was actually the fertility specialist calling to let him know he and Kristen couldn’t have any kids! It was a sad moment — but I’d be more sad if I actually believed him!

In other disastrous couple news, Ethan (Blair Redford) and Emma tried to make sexy times, but a last-minute confession — he told her he kissed Sutton at the ranch — put Emma’s V-Card swiping on ice. Better luck next time, cowboy!

Meanwhile, Laurel’s (Allie Gonino) big Coachella debut hit a slight snag — OK, fine, a huge snag — when car troubles prevented her and Baz (Adam Brooks) from actually reaching the festival. Their consolation prize was a gig at an old folks’ home, but they also got to a little couple-y bonding, so it wasn’t a total loss.

Next week is the epic spring finale, and I’m kind of freaking out about it.

A few things to ponder: If Rebecca loves Ted, why is she marrying Alec? Do you think Sutton and Thayer will be able to stop the wedding? Was Ted telling Kristin the truth about the phone call? And who REALLY killed Derek? Hit up the comments section with your thoughts!
