The Lying Game Review: Plan E
This was one of the best episodes of The Lying Game I've seen in awhile. When it comes to mystery shows on ABC Family. we often find ourselves with more questions than answers.
However, "Much Ado About Everything" not only gave us the stuff we wanted to see, but provided a few gems we had no idea we were even missing. For instance, Kristin once had feeling for Alec. Man, is this crew incestuous!
It turns out that the Kristin's old journal that Rebecca gave to Sutton was not only very informative but very real. For a minute I wondered if Rebecca had faked any of it, but after we saw Kristin's instant recognition at the dinner table it's safe to say that journal was definitely hers.
I'm sure every new mother has doubts when they get scared, especially if they adopt one kid and then are suddenly pregnant with another. That journal was obviously meant to be very private and never to be seen by anyone.
Unfortunately, Sutton has always felt like things were off within her family. I thought she felt that way with the whole family, but I never realized it was more directed towards Kristin. She must've sensed that things were off from Kristin's end, too. I can't believe that Kristin had feelings for Alec! Now it doesn't feel so weird that Alec is married to the woman with whom Ted had an affair. I mean, I know it's weird, but now it doesn't seem so one-sided. Ted and Rebecca, Alec and Kristin... it's like playing swap the spouse.
I understand part of Sutton's anger, but on the other hand I'm not even sure what she's trying to achieve. Does she still want to break up her parents? That's what it seems like now more than ever. However, why is she still so intent on keeping Emma a secret if she isn't bothering to cover her tracks all that well?
Emma is the one who is more careful to keep the twins stories straight when they keep changing lives as opposed to Sutton who is just careless. If Sutton wants Emma to go away, she should work a little harder at hiding the differences between them. Someone was bound to catch on sooner than later. Specifically, maybe a little sister who always wanted to be party of her bitchy older sister's world?
This was always my life. You were just pretending to be a part of it. | permalink
Sutton can really be such a bitch! I'm glad that Emma has Thayer on her side, especially while Mads is getting all Cruel Intentions with her new stepbrother. Incest is not best, sweetheart. Jordan became a whole lot more interesting, though, when Rebecca threatened to out his secret. Now I really want some Jordan background! Do you think maybe he killed Derek for Rebecca? Whatever the case, I don't think it was Alec anymore.
Now that Emma knows the truth what exactly is her plan? She's clued in Laurel so what will Laurel help her in doing? Does anyone feel bad for Sutton? Hit the comments!
Also a heartfelt congratulations to Theresa and Dan!
