The Lying Game - Twinsense and Sensibility

Two dumb things this week: A dream reveals the location of the birthmother’s half-burned house, which also leads to her name. That’s a bit convenient. This episode bordered on magical realism and that’s not the genre of the show, as far as we are concerned.

Secondly, Emma doodles her mom’s name on the notepad in the kitchen that people use to leave Dr. Mercer his messages. Of course, her dad saw it, because Emma also left him a message from a patient who called. Emma did that dumb thing even though she was pretty sure that the male Mercer is hiding something and she shouldn’t tip her hand. We have trouble rooting for dumb characters. There is only room for one stupid character in our hearts, and that is Katniss Everdeen of The Hunger Games (who took about 100 pages longer than anyone else to figure out what was going on throughout the entire series).

Two awesome things this week: We found out that Nisha used to be Sutton’s best friend. We need more info on Sutton and her evil ways, and apparently so does Emma. The other awesome thing is, of course, Laurel, who is by far the prettiest and coolest character on this show. We love her deadpan humor, and taking the fall for Ethan saved him from weeks of ass-raping, a record that would prevent him from ever getting a good job, and life without Emma. We mean Sutton. Not really. Emma/Ethan is definitely going to happen. Anyway, the point is that we’d totally take a sister who would take the fall to keep our boyfriends out of jail. That’s loyalty, even if she was only repaying a favor.

We guess the episode title was cute too. But after an interesting premise, this show is starting to drag, and we don't know where it is headed. Plus, the dumbness. Will we watch next week? To quote another female dummy, "You betcha."

Episode Grade: C+


  1. Haha ya I know the doodling thing was really dumb...but whatever, I still love this show :) I'm guessing Emma/Ethan and Sutton/Thayer will happen, and I'm not complaining :)
    I love Laurel too. And I like Sutton's adoptive mom too :) What's up with Alec and Sutton's dad teaming up to stop her from finding her mother? I guess the point of this show is to find the real mom and get answers, like in PLL it's finding out who A is. So I hope the lying game doesn't drag and keeps giving us some answers they way pll does :)

  2. We're not crazy about any of the guys on this show. Mr. Mercer is at least interesting. They should be replaced as quickly as most of the guys on PLL. Sutton's adoptive mom is a sweetheart.

    Hopefully they solve this mystery and then give the twins something to do. It seems to be going pretty fast. Mr. Mercer is hiding the truth because he feels guilty about something he did that's related to their birthmother. Either he broke the law or just did something really unethical. Can't wait to see what it was.

  3. Ugh, it drove me insane to see how quickly Nisha swooped in and said "wow, Sutton screwing over a friend, who'd see that coming?" right after "Sutton" (Emma) told Char she set up Laurel with Justin. ( ) That reminds me of so many people I know it drove me insane, but that's really good writing/acting.

    also, loved that song during the scene so much I had to look it up and found out it's "A New Feeling" by Alphabet Botanical, hope they use them again this season.
