The Lying Game Review: Sleeping With The Enemy

One huge answer and still so many questions! In " To Lie For " the identity of Theresa's (and possibly Derek's) killer was finally revealed. Was it who you expected? Find out after the jump! There's another Sutton and her name's Emma.  | permalink C'mon Alec, that's the understatement of the century. It's also the most overdue confession...ever! Poor Dan really lost it this week and I don't blame him one bit. To no one's surprise, the autopsy report revealed that Theresa didn't die in the pool and was killed by blunt force trauma to the head. Hmm, same as Derek. There was also the evidence of limestone under her nails, which placed her at the quarry at the time of death. Read More... //

The Lying Game Season 2 Review “To Lie For”

So this is it, the revelations we were offered in this week’s The Lying Game, ‘To Lie For’, will have to sate us for an undetermined amount of time, with this spring finale the last in currently scheduled episodes for the show. Before we get into the review, go and show your support before ABC Family put it on the shelf permanently. Now, what did we discover in this mind-blowing finale? The identity of Theresa’s killer, for one, but it might not be the same guy who killed Derek back in season one. Then there’s Jordan’s little admission to Mads, so are we to believe there’s three separate murderers hanging around, or could they cross over a little more than we’re thinking right now. Could Derek have been the brother Jordon killed? It’s doubtful, but we’ll have to wait and see how it plays out. Anyway, back to Theresa’s attacker – was it who you thought it was? READ MORE...

The Lying Game Season 2 Review “The Grave Truth”

We were left with another doozy of a cliffhanger on last week’s The Lying Game and now, in ‘The Grave Truth’, we’re finally offered some answers. This is the penultimate instalment before next week’s spring finale, after all, so it’s not so surprising that we’re getting into the juicy details. First of all, there’s the question mark hanging over Ted’s innocence, and he comes out of this week’s episode looking more pathetic than ever, but a lot less guilty. As Alec to Dan at the police station, you can hardly believe Ted to be a cold-blooded killer, and he now belongs on the big pile of discarded suspects. Confronted by Sutton at the graveyard, though, he tells his daughter the truth about the adoption, but not about the twins. He’s never known that he had two daughters, and he’s out for blood now that he knows his former BFF is responsible. READ MORE...

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 of this week's episode my head is spinning with a whole new set of questions! Let's break it all down. Read More... //

The Lying Game Review: Runaway Bride

After l ast 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 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, the vows didn't seem written by a person who couldn't commit. 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? Read More... //

The Lying Game Season 2 Review “Bride and Go Seek”

We were left with a doozy of a cliffhanger on last week’s  The Lying Game  and now, in ‘Bride and Go Seek’, we’re treated to the fallout . Theresa, wherever she is, doesn’t turn up for the wedding and public opinion switches straight to the most obvious explanation. Dan isn’t buying it, however, and despite the empty apartment, car and abandoned wedding ring , he’s convinced that whoever killed Derek has gone after his fiancé for getting too close to the case. By the end of the episode, we’re no closer to finding out who is behind all of this, but the evidence is certainly pointing towards Ted as the culprit. Then again, we all know by now that the person the show wants us to think of is probably the least likely to be guilty. Alec, for example, has never looked more innocent, and has essentially switched places with former family man, Ted. Emma is still in denial about her father’s true nature, and cracks  begin to show in her relationships while she attempts to cover for him. READ MORE...

The Lying Game Review: You and Me, We're Everything

Emma Becker is in trouble and for once it has nothing to do with finding her birth mom and pretending to be her twin sister. In " Regrets Only " we find out that Emma finally cashed in her v-card to Thayer.  The whole problem is she may not be 100% invested in Thayer. It seems like nobody is invested in their designated partner these days on The Lying Game . Well nobody except for Theresa and Dan, the almost newlyweds. But after that last scene with Theresa in the graveyard it doesn't look like anyone is headed to the altar tomorrow. Who abducted or attacked Theresa? Well that's a whole other question.   Read More... //

The Lying Game Season 2 Review “Regrets Only”

There was a little doubt about what happened between Emma and Thayer at the end of last week’s The Lying Game , but here we find out that they did indeed do the dirty. This means that Emma has cashed in her v-card to someone other than Ethan, and this can only mean more heartbreak  lurking around the corner. Now that they’ve slept together, Emma isn’t entirely sure that she’s actually in love with Thayer, so her rather rash decision to jump  in the sack with him could mean trouble for everyone. Contrary to most people’s opinions of the twin girls, I’ve never really liked Emma at all, so I’d actually prefer either of the two boys to be with Sutton. Sadly, she’s all alone again after some of her secrets have come out. Will these girls ever just pick someone to  be in a relationship with? Or are we destined to watch them ponder the same question over and over again? READ MORE...

The Lying Game Review: CinderEmma

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. This week it was time for Emma to get in some face time with Mommy Dearest Rebecca. 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 Emma. 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. Read More... //

The Lying Game Season 2 Review “Catch Her in the Lie”

CinderEmma’s on a mission to take down her evil twin sister  in this week’s  The Lying Game , ‘Catch Her in the Lie’, after some good detective work finally led her to the truth about Sutton and Rebecca. Now that Laurel’s on her side, too, she’s taken her power back, and Sutton isn’t too happy about this sudden turn of events. The previous episode was all about big revelations, and this one is about the fallout that keeping so many secrets is bound cause. At this moment in time, nobody trusts Sutton and everybody trusts Emma, meaning that the girl who’s had her life stolen is well and truly on the outs. This doesn’t seem entirely fair, but then I guess that’s what you get when you keep your birth mother a secret from your own sister. To be fair, she actually put forward the idea of bringing Emma in on the big master plan , but Rebecca – ever the control freak – shot her down immediately. READ MORE...
