The Lying Game Review: Sympathy for the Devil?

by at . Comments

This is the first episode of The Lying Game where we've been treated to legitimate interaction between the twins. Moreover, "Pleased to Meet Me" dropped the most answers we've ever received.

Let's start at the top: Sutton is alive. She doesn't remember anything about the car crash except that there was a guy who grabbed her from the backseat. Makes sense, she was in a car accident with a nice sized bump on her head. I wouldn't expect her to recall much.

I think we're all on the same page about who was in the backseat of the car, right? Derek. Annie said she saw a young guy with dark hair and after that scene with Emma last week, Derek is definitely the guilty party. I guess it's a good thing her allegedly whacko birth mother was tailing her.

As I stated before, this is the most we've seen Sutton and Emma share the screen since the show first aired. I enjoyed it. Now, here's my latest theory. Let me know what you think...

Alec had Derek steal the computer to get intel on Sutton. He used the information on there to have Derek set it up to look like a "Lying Game." I'm not sure if I'm getting my wires crossed, but I'm pretty sure all of the past Lying Games were documented on the computer. They were definitely chronicled in the books.

Perfect cover up, huh Alec? Derek is obviously that dumb and desperate to agree to be an accomplice to an attack and possible murder. What on earth is so wrong with Alec that he was going to have his Goddaughter offed??? That guy has more than a few screws loose. 

Annie obviously woke up and freaked out when she saw Sutton gone and either assumed she left her or that she was going to have her re-committed. Alec doesn't realize that Sutton's alive but I'm sure it's only a matter of time.

So... which guy did Rebecca mess around with? Ted or Alec or both? And what do you guys think of Mads' potential new guy? How about Laurel's singing voice?

Dang! Laurel has got a great set of pipes! I loved the look she was rocking, too. I want to give a huge shoutout to reader "Meghan" for correctly guessing the cause of Justin's mother's death. Ted was the doctor on call and something distracted him. Now I just wonder what that could be.

Poor Laurel, she's been lied to and used, but I don't think I'm crazy in thinking that Justin really did grow to love her. So many bombs were dropped this week, I can't wait to hear what you all thought!

I feel sorry for Emma. I've seen the promo for next week's episode where Sutton kisses Ethan again. What is her deal? She has her life back and God knows what Emma should do now. I really would have liked Emma and Sutton living together with Sutton's family, but I don't trust Sutton and I think she wants Emma out of her life.

Honestly, in my opinion, Allie Gonino makes the show! I think she's the best actress in the bunch and she just nails every scene she's in. I'm totally buying what she's selling. Other than that, it was a decent episode.

Jessica would always try and make everyone think she was the 'good' one when really that couldn't have been furthest from the truth. And Jess was so much the scheming twin and always getting into trouble. Anyway, when Emma was walking away, it looked like she was skipping town? (Sad!!) And did you see scenes for the next, ugh, Sutton kisses Ethan again!!! So ANNOYING!!! And ever since Sutton's been back I feel Emma has lost air time.

Probably because this way Sutton can hang out with Ethan, while Emma must "hide." Also, Sutton and Emma think that their killer will kill the both of them if he knows they're both alive. When Sutton went in the water, the killer assumed Sutton dead, at least as far we know. This episode left me feeling not great. I cannot believe Emma is back to being Emma and the life that she grew to love has been taken from her by her evil twin. Oh my gosh, this show reminds me of Sweet Valley Twins, and High because Jessica was so much like Sutton in that, she was always trying to one up her (Liz-her twin) or get back at Liz (Emma).

Great. Allie Gonino is a good singer and actor. Sutton's cut being 3 days old will be hard to explain (I know it was waved off). Ted's going to mention it to Alek maybe. It was obvious that the new guy was getting the tickets for Mads. I liked that Emma hugged Sutton right away. It'll be fun to see Sutton with her life back.

Did I just walk in on my own funeral? Because if so, I've gotta say the turnout kinda sucks.
