'Lying Game' recap: Mental Hell Day
In California, Dr. Hughes has locked up Sutton overnight. Convinced -- by the fairly solid proof that Sutton is carrying Emma's license -- Hughes threatens Sutton with drugs and sleazeball orderlies until Sutton relents and lies that she's Emma. Somewhere along the way, though, Sutton wises up and realizes she can flirt at least one sleazy orderly into letting her out of her room for a field trip to Annie's room. Once she gets there, though, Annie reveals she was told repeatedly that she killed Emma in the Fillmore fire. Nothing Sutton says will convince her, and Sutton ends up being dragged out of the room kicking and screaming. Dr. Hughes calls a police escort and banishes a handcuffed "Emma" into the night -- and back to Las Vegas. Lest you worry about the advances of Emma's pervy foster brother Travis, he's found his way to the Mercers' house to engage in all sorts of blackmail, intimidation, and sexual harassment with Emma.
Also, Laurel decides to go all the way with Justin. She thinks "Sutton" is covering for her, but that part kind of gets lost in the shuffle. As such, a frantic Kristin and Ted engage the tracking software on Laurel's cell phone and find her spooning with Justin in a sleeping bag amid a candlelit, wine-soaked squatter sex den. As they say, you never forget your first time!
