The Lying Game Review: Cruel Intentions
Wow, that Rebecca really scares the crap out of me!
If people were unconvinced of how evil she was before, all you needed to do was catch the final scene in "A Kiss Before Lying" when she almost mowed down her own daughter for disobeying her.
What could've pissed Rebecca off enough to frighten Sutton so and show her a notebook where Kristin confessed to wanting to give her up?
Oh, just Sutton deciding last minute NOT to expose the fact that Ted is the biological father of the twins to an entire event full of people!
Rebecca is up there with Mommy Dearest. I can't believe I momentarily felt bad for her up at the cabin during her creepy honeymoon. I mean, was that shower scene a rip off of Pretty Little Liars nod to Psycho or what? Actually, I suppose nothing is a rip off when the shows come from the same writer, creator and parent company. After all, they have a lot of the same vibes.
Either way, that was one of the creepier honeymoons I've ever seen. If Alec is telling the truth when he says he wouldn't be doing all this stuff for Rebecca if he thought she framed him, then what the heck is really going on? Alec totally thinks Rebecca framed him! With this couple it's like sleeping with the enemy. They want to take each other down. I guess we just have to assume that Alec has something a lot more complicated up his sleeve.
Rebecca's cruel intentions are just a little more upfront. Exposing Ted and ruining Kristin at an event honoring him? That's cold. I guess Sutton felt some last-second guilt staring at Kristin after hearing that story in therapy. Deep down, Sutton probably just has some angst about her adoption and feeling loved and that's why she rebels. Despite the fact that the Mercers seem like loving parents, that couldn't have been easy.
Do you think that Kristin really had a diary that said she wanted to give up Sutton? Rebecca is a really cruel person as we all know, but that's not exactly why I've been dying to use the title "Cruel Intentions" for weeks now. This following quote from Laurel about sums it up:
I'd say...have fun kissing your stepsister, creep. | permalink
Okay, the minute I found out that Mads was macking it to her brand new stepbrother obviously my first thought was "ew." But now that they're continuing their little dalliance, all I can think about is Sebastian and Kathryn from Cruel Intentions. Was anyone else thinking the same thing?
I still wish we could get the full story from the past. Like did Ted know Rebecca was pregnant? How much does Ted know about the adoption? Why did Alec or whoever force her to give up the babies?
