The Lying Game Review: CinderEmma

by at . Comments

After last week's intense suspicions, Emma has come clean to at least one person in the Mercer family. Now that Laurel knows the truth, "Catch Her in the Lie" was all about the next step in the plan.

Here, it was time for Emma to get in some face time with Mommy Dearest Rebecca.

Emma Pretends To Be Sutton

When we kicked off The Lying Game season 2, Sutton was the one with the plan. She and Rebecca were scheming behind everyone's backs, including Sutton's twin sister. Rebecca even told Sutton as much tonight when Sutton tossed out the idea of bringing Emma into the fold. Rebecca thinks she makes the plans. Oh, Rebecca, the tables have turned.

Thanks to that random nurse who remembered that Rebecca was Emma's mom and dropped the bomb, Emma is now officially clued in. Now she's recruiting members for her team. It's not too hard to convince people to be on Emma's side when in four months she's showed how different she is compared to 17 years of Sutton. Sutton is pissed because she knows she's on the outside now.

Mads shouldn't be worried about being left out and "voted off the island" when Sutton is in the picture. Sometimes I feel bad for Sutton and want someone on her side, but she shouldn't be so secretive and bitchy all the time. She almost had Ethan back, but once again lying screwed her. No wonder this show is called The Lying Game, that's all that happens! I will say that Sutton has obviously been scared into keeping quiet.

I'm fairly convinced at this point that Alec didn't kill Derek. But now Ted has come into the picture with the 20K in bank withdrawals just when Derek's mom surfaces with a bag full of money. Does Ted know about the twins? Why is it all so dangerous? Theresa knows the truth about the twins, does that put her in danger? 

Once again I'm left with more questions. Things I hope happen between this week and next: Ethan and Mads only bond and don't hook up. Thayer and Emma do hook up. That's about it. What'd you think of this week's episode of The Lying Game?

Ethan doesn't deserve Emma. Ethan belongs with Sutton or someone else. Themma makes a lot of sense. They are kindred souls.

What surprised me was when Sutton asked if Rebecca could include Emma in their plans. Wasn't Sutton the one always wishing she were an only child and always trying to connive some way to be rid of Emma? I'd want to feel sorry for Sutton being alone, except she deserves it after how she's treated everyone. It was one thing not to include Mads in the scheming, but a whole other thing to flat out lie to her. Bad, Emma. That's bad form. I'm glad Mads called her out on it. Gosh I hope Emma picks a boy and sticks with one. For at least the remainder of the season. We've got soapy drama with Ted-Kristen-Alec-Rebecca and now the quadrangle of Sutton-Ethan-Emma-Thayer plus who knows what with Mads-Jordan-maybe Ethan. I'm glad Ethan was there for both Mads and Laurel. Theresa and Dan are too cute. However, he needs to reconcile with the fact it would be against the law for her share what Alec told her.

Rebecca is a sociopath. She knows that Sutton is easier to manipulate because even though she had this seemingly amazing family, she still wanted her birth mother and her desperate search for the birth mother means that she'd do anything for her. Emma has been hardened by years in the foster care and she knows when she is being played. Rebecca is too good. The tables may have been turned on her now, it won't be for long.

Well it looks like Thayer and Emma hooked for sure in the previews. I'm disappointed. I have been rooting for Ethan this whole time so I'm sad to see Emma lose her virginity after a week of dating a guy. I don't think mads and Ethan will hook up. Rather they will help each other in their love life departments. I can't understand Rebecca and her reasoning to keep Emma out unless it is to wait till the end bec it is harder to manipulate Emma than it is sutton. Excited for next week! Especially if Ethan punches Thayer and then kisses Emma! Finally he is going to fight for what he wants!

Sutton: Trust me.
Rebecca: Well that's just it Sutton, sometimes I'm not sure if I can.

If anyone found out that you know about me and Sutton your life could be in danger.
