As Rebecca’s lies get more twisted, the wicked wife is quickly losing allies! Is she about to crack?

Dan and Theresa’s wedding went off without a hitch on the Feb. 26 episode of The Lying Game — and by that, I mean absolutely no one got hitched. The bride remained M.I.A., and a full-scale investigation was launched; but the most shocking discovery was the one Emma (Alexandra Chando) made about her dad. In the episode’s final moments, Emma confronted Ted (Andy Buckley) at the grave where Theresa went missing, and she was holding the hospital I.D. card he left behind!

In what could be considered an equally surprising turn of events, Sutton came clean to Emma about her dealings with Rebecca (Charisma Carpenter) — and I mean all of her dealings. So for the first time since the pilot, the twins are finally on the same page. But how long will their truce last?

Of course, Sutton wasn’t the only one of Rebecca’s minions who turned on her this week; Jordan (Ryan Rottman) also came clean to Mads (Alice Greczyn) about Rebecca using him to spy on her, as well as Alec using him to spy on Rebecca. Basically, he’s caught in a Mr. and Mrs. Smith-style situation, and he claims he’s doing it all for Mads. But do we believe him? I want to believe him, because his pool scenes have made this show even more pleasing to watch, but this show has also taught me not to trust a pretty face.

Back to Alec, he continued to shake things up in the Mercer household this week. Before fleeing to the graveyard to cover his tracks, Ted confronted Kristen (Helen Slater) about her relationship with Alec, and it ended in a broken vase — and a broken family. If only Laurel (Allie Gonino) had her violin handy, she could have provided some depressing, and very fitting, background tunes.

What did you think of this week’s Lying Game? Do you think Ted is really responsible for Theresa’s disappearance? And is Sutton really crossing back over to the good side? Drop a comment with your best theories below!
