The Lying Game Review: Runaway Bride

by at . Comments

After last week's shocking ending, it should come as no surprise that Theresa was a no show at her wedding. The real question on "Bride and Go Seek" was this: did she run or did someone take her?

I think we're all betting on that latter one. As Dan pointed out when he read Theresa's vows to Ethan, those words didn't seem written by a person who couldn't commit.

Will There Be a Wedding?

Even though the whole town may think that Dan is in denial and has gone off his rocker, everyone involved with the twins mystery knows better. Theresa got too involved in solving the Derek Roger's murder and someone went after her. Whoever did it was really damn thorough, too, cleaning out her apartment, car and leaving the ring. 

I know I used the term "whoever" because even though the ending brought us to Ted at Derek's grave facing Emma who found his missing hospital badge, it still doesn't all add up. Or does it? Is it too easy to assume that Ted wanted to protect the secret so first he bribed Derek and then he attacked Theresa? Also, doesn't Ted not even know there is a twin?

Last week, Theresa addressed the person with a shocked and disbelieving "you?!" before the credits rolled. If it were Alec, I think she would've said Alec. Then this week the footsteps left by the grave were from a man and a woman. But since Dan attacked Alec and the investigation got shut down, just how many sets of footprints were there? More than one man? Or more than one woman perhaps?

I know some of you readers were tossing around the idea of Jordan being the killer. I gotta say that I'm just not getting that vibe. He came clean to Mads too quickly this week. He seems scared of Rebecca. He made the call from Flagstaff but obviously it's because Rebecca was framing Alec. There are still so many questions here.

Did anyone else think that Thayer seemed awkwardly suspicious this week? Do you chalk it up to his insecurity that Emma may still have feelings for Ethan or do you think something's there? Right now my money is on Ted, Rebecca or maybe even Thayer as the wild card. I think Alec is off the hook.

There were some sweet moments this week, mostly involving Laurel and Emma. 

You're my half sister Emma. Despite it all, if you and Sutton hadn't been asking those questions we never would've found each other. | permalink

I also found Alec comforting Kristen to be kinda sweet. Isn't it weird that Alec went from public enemy number-one to maybe being kind of a good guy? Crazy how things can change when you get more to the story. Call me greedy, but I still need more answers! How about you guys? Hit the comments!

After the second episode, I thought Thayer killed Derek and after this episode, I'm more convinced than ever. He's been too suspicious and ever since he got back together with Emma he's gotten worse.

Thayer is really starting to creep me out. He seems to want to control Emma & not want her to speak to anyone else. He always tries to speak for her now even with Mads & Laurel. Something is just not right with Thayer. It was an odd conversation between Alec & Thayer when Alec told him he was doing it & had done everything for him? Am I the only one who thought that?
