THE LYING GAME “Double Dibs” Review


THE LYING GAME “Double Dibs” Episode 3 – Last week on THE LYING GAME I was enthralled with Emma’s ability to take over Sutton’s life, even if there were a few bumps along the road. I did wonder how her family and friends could not notice the change in her. That is even a bigger question this week. More time has passed, although it seems like only a couple days, and Emma is acting more like herself than Sutton. Now, I wouldn’t expect anyone to figure out Emma is an imposter, but shouldn’t they be more concerned about the huge change in “Sutton’s” personality? Is it possible that because she is so much more enjoyable and pleasant to be around, that they are willing to look the other way?

What was even more intriguing about this episode of The Lying Game though was the backstory about the girls’ adoption. With every new piece of information that Sutton finds, the story gets even seedier. What we know now is an “adoption broker” brokered adoptions of both girls but paid a woman to pretend to be their mother and sign the documents. Sutton ended up with her family and all was well. Unfortunately, Emma was taken back by yet another unknown woman pretending to be the birth mother. So many questions. Why would someone take Emma back just to have her end up in a foster home? Who currently wants to keep these secrets? I think Alec is one of them.

Let’s talk about Alec some more. He hires someone to break in and steal Sutton’s laptop. Sutton is his god daughter! Then he plants the laptop in Ethan’s car. Aside from their recent fisticuffs, what does he have against Ethan? Is it the fact that he was helping Sutton in her search for her real parents? I know that Alec knows a lot about that unseemly adoption process.

In nonmysterious news, it looks like Laurel will not be winning any popularity contests at school now that she stole Char’s new love interest, Justin. I am not really sure that you can steal something that was never yours, but I am also pretty sure Char won’t see it that way. We also have an inappropriate relationship alert with Madeline and her ballet teacher. It seems to be the new rage in teenage shows these days.

What did you think about this episode of The Lying Game? What aspect of the show do you like best, Emma’s role play or the mystery surrounding their birth? Who broke into Thayer’s apartment and used his laptop if no one knows Sutton is in town? We know at least two people know Sutton is in town, the fake birth mother and the fake adoptive father. Could one of them have had something to do with it? Tell me what you think down below!
