Plus: One twin hits the sheets with the guy she loves, while a marriage continues to fall apart.

With Laurel (Allie Gonino) finally in on the big secret, Emma (Alexandra Chando) and the boys plotted to expose Sutton and Rebecca (Charisma Carpenter) on the Feb. 12 episode of The Lying Game. Their plan went down at the flip-side formal, and just to make things extra complicated, Ethan (Blair Redford) took Emma as his date instead of Sutton! Let the madness begin.

Thayer (Christian Alexander) was able to stall Sutton by hijacking her limo, but apparently all those muscles are just for show, because she had him on the ground in no time — and not in a good way. Jordan (Ryan Rottman) also pulled some shenanigans of his own, taking Laurel to the formal as a “cover” for really wanting to be there with Mads (Alice Greczyn).

But the kids weren’t the only ones getting their drama on this week. While reminiscing about old times, Kristin (Helen Slater) and Alec (Adrian Pasdar) came this close to kissing on the mouth, while Rebecca and Ted (Andy Buckley) enjoyed a flirty little dance at the formal.

As for the ongoing murder investigation, a butt-load of money — $20,000 to be exact — was found at Derek’s house, leading the kiddies to suspect that Rebecca may have been paying him to keep quiet about something. But as soon as Emma found out the amount, she suddenly put all the pieces together: Kristin had said there was $20K missing from her bank account, which meant Derek had been blackmailing Ted, not Rebecca.

So if Emma’s logic is right — which, to be fair, it’s usually not — then Ted is actually the one who killed Derek! Emma celebrated her little victory by ripping Thayer’s clothes off and letting him to go town on her.

What did you think of this week’s episode? Do you believe Ted killed Derek? And did you get the uh-oh feeling when Mads and Ethan were chatting by the pool? Drop me a comment with your thoughts and theories!
