The Lying Game - A Kiss Before Lying

As Sutton (Alexandra Chando) reclaims her life Emma (Chando) grows restless tutoring Ethan (Blair Redford) at the cabin, and things get really interesting when Alec (Adrian Pasdar) and Rebecca (Charisma Carpenter) arrive for their long-delayed honeymoon. Forced to head to a cheap motel she learns Sutton is hiding a secret about her time in the same hotel and finally decides to leave the lies behind and jump a bus to Los Angeles to be with Thayer (Christian Alexander). However, when she arrives unannounced to find Thayer alone with his new half-naked blonde surfer friend (Kasey Stevens) she realizes she may have made a very big mistake.

Sutton begins pushing Rebecca’s agenda by torpedoing Ted (Andy Buckley) and Kristin’s (Helen Slater) latest therapy session, offers Laurel (Allie Gonino) condescending advice about Jordan (Ryan Rottman), and works on a speech for Ted’s big night that would go over all of his mistakes, the affair, and announce to the world that he is actually Sutton’s biological father. However, even the normally bitchy Sutton finds it difficult to publicly humiliate the mother who raised her to please the mother who abandoned her.

Despite telling Laurel, and herself, that she has no plans to get romantically involved with Jordan, Mads (Alice Greczyn) moves in with Alec, Rebecca, and Jordan and immediately gives into her feelings for him. And despite her best efforts to hide their relationship, her father is able to quickly deduce what is happening when he returns from his somewhat awkward honeymoon. As the show moves forward to Sutton’s big tennis tournament several lies begin bubbling close to the surface as an irate Rebecca, disappointed by her daughter’s failure to kill Ted and Kristin’s marriage pushes forward by trying to drive a wedge between daughter and step-mother and Emma discovers that maybe she didn’t make such a big mistake going to Los Angeles after all.
