‘The Lying Game’ Recap: Has Emma Given Up On Ethan For Good?

Plus, is Alec really innocent after all? This is madness.

The twins’ love lives got even more complicated on the Jan. 15 episode of The Lying Game, as Emma (Alexandra Chando) gave Sutton her blessing to pursue Ethan (Blair Redford). Like she really needed it. Meanwhile, Emma finally gave into her feelings for Thayer (Christian Alexander), which sent Ethan into a jealous/drunken stupor — and straight into Sutton’s bed.

Mads (Alice Greczyn) paid a visit to Alec (Adrian Pasdar) in prison, and somehow he was able to convince her he was merely “holding” the tire iron in the infamous photo, rather than using it to kill Derek. Even crazier, he might be telling the truth! Tyler and Theresa tracked down the woman who planted the tire iron in Alec’s bag, though she has no idea who paid her. Oh well.

Later, during a fit of bitch-fueled rage, Mads called Thayer out for not even really being Alec’s son. As it turns out, Thayer’s biological dad left him and his mom when he was a kid; then when he returned years later, Thayer chose to stay with Alec and Mads.

Just checking, is Laurel (Allie Gonino) the only character without some kind of wacky familial background? They should retitle this show The Paternity Game.

Speaking of Laurel, she got to perform at Jordan’s (Ryan Rottman) party, which was really just a ruse for him to get closer to her. There were a lot of ruses going on this week, actually.

As for Ted and Kristen’s marriage? Don’t hold your breath. Therapy was a disaster, as expected, and Rebecca (Charisma Carpenter) was lurking in the shadows, ready to pick up the pieces. She’s so good at picking up pieces.

What did you think of this week’s episode? Is Alec really innocent, or is he just really clever? And do you approve of the Emma/Thayer, Sutton/Ethan pairings? Drop me a comment with your personal review!

I love Emma and Thayer being together becuase I love his character and I dont like it when people hurt him on the show and hurt him badly. You can tell they have feelings for each other because their first kiss is not a shy little peck it is a real emotional one. I can tell that Thayer really loves Emma and he has been trustful, helpful, honest, respectful, caring and brave for Emma for all of season 1 and season 2 which no one else ever was for Emma. I mean when Emma and Thayer were not dating and Emma was also alone at their party he invited Ethan over just for her so she wouldnt be lonely even though he could give her company. Also like Thayer said he has loved Emma since the day he first met her. Thayer deserves way better than Emma but I like them together because that is better than Emma and Ethan. I really dont like Ethan. I LIKE THAYER

I think u meant Dan and Teresa.
i guess the therapy wasn’t really a disaster, it was just that Rebecca is screwing things up at a much faster level than they can try to fix.

I think that Emma and Ethan should be together. But also Emma should go back to her friends in Arizona to finish school and then come back

Sutton cares for no one but herself. She may have feelings for Ethan, but she’ll always put herself first. And as for Rebecca…still not sure if she genuinely cares about the twins or is just using them to get what she wants.

i dont know how alec got such a gulity looking snap shoot if he is innocent. i can believe emma chose thayer nut i guess the two people who make the mistakes really can live happy together telling each other lies. and also i can’t believe sutton is such a cunt towards her sister. i thought that was the one person she actually did care about.
