The Lying Game Review: Answers Galore!

by at . Comments

In the words of fangirls everywhere: OMG! To be honest, I was a little frustrated for the majority of tonight's The Lying Game, "Black and White and Green All Over." But that ending just blew my mind!

While it was satisfying to finally have Ted and Justin confront each other, I still felt like there was so much we weren't getting. Mainly, what call could have made Ted leave the surgery? What was so important that he risked a patient's life? Then, as the rest of the episode unfolded, I started to piece together what that phone call could've been about.

The Lying Game Dance

The extra clue about the phone call came unexpectedly from Kristen. She mentioned that it was a frustrating time and they were trying to get pregnant. Ah-ha! Sutton and Laurel are less than a year apart, so it is more than possible that Annie could have been in labor. Or maybe it was even a year before and Ted was first finding out about the pregnancy.

I'm pretty sure we all agree at this point that Ted is probably the twins' biological father, right? If it's not him, it's Alec, but I'm leaning way more towards Ted. I feel like I need to rewatch the first half of season one in order to piece this all together, but tonight opened a lot more doors.

Emma, Sutton and Annie Hobbs in the same room at the same time having a conversation was amazing. It's the moment so many of us have been waiting for. Then, Annie dropped the bomb that she is NOT in fact their biological mother and that she stole Emma. So what's her connection to Ted and Alec, particularly Alec? She pretty much shuddered at the mention of his name.

Obviously Alec and Ted were protecting the birth mother. Ted apparently had history with someone named Annie, Rebecca Sewell was originally named Annie and she mentioned having a past with Ted. Plus, there is more than a slight resemblance between Alexandra Chando and Charisma Carpenter. 

Lastly, we have the confrontation between the Annies at the end. Obviously they know each other and obviously Rebecca/Annie does not like Annie Hobbs. Everything is starting to finally piece together!

Of course, as Chando mentioned in our interview, we will get answers, but new questions will arise from there. If my aforementioned theory is true, it would explain many things, including why all the parents stopped being friends. After all, Rebecca/Annie is Char's aunt, so I'd imagine Phyllis's issues could stem a lot from this incident. 

One thing I still really want to know is who wants Sutton dead and why? Also, would you forgive Justin if you were Laurel? Such a crazy episode and I was almost going to write it off as another wild goose chase resulting in no answers. 

What are your theories? Hit the comments! One thing is for sure, I cannot wait until next week and until we find out who "the snake" is!

I dont know if my message can get to the writers of the show but DONT KILL OFF SUTTON. I want to seee sutton's character progress. I want to see her try to change and Emma and Sutton be actually sisters. In Vampire Diaries, teh beginning season one brother was bad and the other good but now people love both of them. I want it to be something like that here. Sutton doesnt wait around to be saved by somebody and she doesnt go around complaining about her problems she takes care of them. That is refreshing from characters that go around and whine to their boyfriends saying they cant do this anymore(EMMA). Dont get me wrong I like Emma I also like Sutton though. I think she has some really good qualities and of course some bad ones

Well if you want to be technical about it Ethan wasn't really Sutton's boyfriend. She already had one. She was cheating on him with Ethan. She treated him like crap. He was good enough to have sex with but not good enough to actually be with.

I agree with the review. Sutton is so much fun. Sutton is shaping up to be a fun anti-villain. Maybe in the fullness of time Justin could be forgiven. Ethan's brother is the one who made Sutton crash probably. I used to think it was Derek but I don't think he could make himself do it. Rebecca and Alec are both playing the same game. Rebecca is the obvious choice for the twins' mother.

I like Emma being Sutton way better than Sutton being Sutton she is such a bi**h. This episode clarified alot of questions for me. I think I could forgive Justin for the whole using Laurel to get Ted but not for the douchebag break up, Kristin was right to step in between Justin and Laurel. Kristen was the biggest surprise of this episode. She not only stood up to protect Laurel but she also stood up to Ted.

Ah. So i think Rebecca sewell is their mother ,but thats just to easy. I think ted is the dad because it shouldnt be Alec since thayer and sutton slept together that would just be such a turn off so i dont think the writers would do that. Unless thayer and mads arent Alecs biological kids, which would start to make the show a little unbelievable. I personally wann know why sutton is th way she is like a little history. We got info on why she didnt like ryan but why she so mean to everyone and its not just because shes entitleted because eveyone is except ethan and Emma. Although i gotta say i do like sutton it makes things interesting you really dont know what she wants.

Emma and Ethan were adorable. I love them as a couple. :) I hope he doesn't get hurt, looks a bit like it in the promo. :( And God, what is wrong with Sutton? Hitting on your sister's boyfriend and then on your best friend's, too? She is so shady.

Well like tanner 1511 i also believe rebecca/annie is their mother, i mean who wouldnt think that? Sutton is kind of bipolar. i really cant tell if shes lying sometimes but then i know she is. its like she wants her twin sister to be there but she wants her gone as well. Im deffinatly thinking derek is the one because he fits the description from like last weeks episode when sutton said annie hobbs had seen a tall, dark haired, white male. So he came to mind. Also theres deff something extra not coming out from the Justin and Ted situation. Whats the phone call about? Seriously.
