'Lying Game' recap: Daddy Issues
Of course, sister Laurel figures out they have a secret relationship, and the episode ends with Sutton's parents finding him hanging around in her bedroom. Knowing the Mercers, they'll probably just be grateful that Sutton is finally opening up about her love life and give her like twenty hugs, and then kick Laurel in the shins for being a tattletale.
Emma spends the episode delivering sassy smackdowns to everybody's parents: Char's abusive mom for yelling at her about being a ballet failure, and Mads's dad Adrian Pasdar for being a general drunken creep. She also apologizes for punching Nisha once the video of the throwdown goes viral, which calms the waters considerably on that front. Nisha and Sutton have a similar awesomeness, it's increasingly clear.
