The Lying Game Review: Hide and Seek

by at . Comments

You’ve gotta love the crazy cliffhangers on The Lying Game. How badly would you be freaking out after receiving a threatening package from your potentially dead twin? That was the question facing Emma at the start of "When We Dead Awaken."

Emma wants to run to the police, but Ethan and Thayer realize this seems an awful lot like one of Sutton’s Lying Games. The tell tale sign? The wrapping of the package: white paper, black ribbon.

Hugs All Around

I have to say that their plan to pull Sutton out of hiding by making her insanely jealous is a pretty good one. Besides, Emma deserves to visit a college, considering she would actually appreciate a scholarship!

I’m kind of more curious as to what’s going on with Justin. That scene at the golf course with Ted was so tense you could slice it with a knife. Why suddenly break up with Laurel? Why do we still not know the deal with the bracelet?

Obviously, Justin didn’t want to split with Laurel. The same way Derek didn’t want to break up with Char. That whole conversation between Derek and Emma was awkward and telling. Derek absolutely, positively, 100% had an involvement in the car crash at the end of Season One.

I'm guessing Char's move to her dad's place won't be permanent. Char's mother no doubt needed rehab, but Aunt “Rebecca” was pushing a bit hard for custody of Char. Honestly, there are some ulterior motives here. Then again, on The Lying Game, when can you take anything at face value?

Now that Thayer figured out that Annie Hobbs is out of the psych ward, the gang seems much more worried. I don't blame them. 

Of course, I saved the best for last. Sutton’s alive. Where do you all think she's been?

I somehow didn't expect Sutton to walk in alive (probably because I've read the books and thought they were going in that direction). I really think Ted was the driver who hit Justin's parents' car and killed them
