I hope you were taking detailed notes while The Lying Game season one was airing, because ten months later, things have picked up for season two almost exactly where they left off. In this premiere, ‘The Revengers’, Alec has been arrested for murder, Sutton and Emma are at each other’s throats, and Ethan and Thayer are still warring over which twin is in their arms.
As I mentioned, it’s a good job the ‘previously on’ snippet was so detailed, because there’s no way we would have remembered all of the twists and turns from season one without it. Recounting the princess vs. pauper tale we’ve already gone through, now we get to enjoy the show with the knowledge that Rebecca is, in fact, the girls’ birth mother. I wasn’t quite clear on this, but does the news mean that Ted is actually their biological father? In the pool scene Rebecca describes the four of them as the family she should have had, so maybe Sutton wasn’t raised by two completely unrelated parents after all.
