The Lying Game Review: The Lying Gang
Last week's concluding scene on The Lying Game left us with a lot of questions for Ted Mercer. Mainly: why was Ted visiting Derek Rogers grave?
In "The Grave Truth," we got more answers than we could've bargained for. Then again, after the ending scene, my head is spinning with a whole new set of questions! Let's break it all down.
Emma (posing as Sutton) confronted Ted at Derek's grave. She wouldn't give him his hospital badge back without getting some answers first. I have to say she really has some balls considering Ted was one of the main suspects of The Lying Game Season 2.
Alec had a great point when he stopped Dan from choking Ted out at the police station: Ted may make a lot of mistakes, but look at the guy, he's not the killer. Ted was practically crapping his pants!
With Ted's confession that he is Sutton's birth father and Rebecca is her mother, he swore those were all the secrets. Like Emma, I genuinely believed him and believed that he didn't kill Derek or know about the twins. Now that Sutton revealed her twin to Ted, which was a great moment, it was time to rally and get everyone on the same page.
The friends were all on the same page and Laurel got the twins on board together early on. Well, the friends were almost all on the same page; Thayer was conveniently left out, something that has become more common in the past few weeks. Why do you think this is? Do you think everyone else is getting the same shady vibe that we the viewers are? What about that comment last week that everything Alec has done, he's done for Thayer? Also didn't that figure who stole from Rebecca's house have the same body as Thayer?
I know that all signs point to Rebecca, but it would just be too easy if Rebecca we're the killer. Too convenient. There's also the question of whether the same person killed both Derek and Theresa. That's right, Theresa is no longer with us. This was highly suspected, but now confirmed since we saw her lifeless body floating in the country club pool. Her body and her cell phone were both planted in a public place.
Where do we go from here? All the reveals this week made me even more excited for next week's The Lying Game spring finale! My favorite quote of the episode definitely went to Sutton when referring to Alec:
No offense guys, but at some point you're going to have to stop being surprised by things that man did in the mid-90s. | permalink
So true Sutton, so true. I wonder if Alec's love Kristen will be able to forgive him when she finds out about the twins? What did everyone else think of all the reveals? Excited for the spring finale?
