The Lying Game: The Almost of Ethan and Emma

Oh Ethan and Emma. Alexandra Chando and Blair Redford are just too charismatic for this show. Monday night, I essentially watched their scenes and fast forward through everything else. Tell me honestly - did I really miss anything?

So. It opens with Ethan avoiding her. Because that's the only way they don't immediately untangle the web of nasty Sutton has wove.

Then they DO talk face to face, and as predicted, it takes 90 seconds for them to figure out the evil person with the perfect powers of impersonation screwed with their minds. Again.

So they get back together. Yay! Hearts and rainbows. Except Ethan doesn't divulge that when he was with Sutton, despite not having tapped-that, he did kiss that.

Okay. Then my favorite scene of the night. Emma's "will you have sex with me?" scene. This was the moment in which I decided both Alexandra Chando and Blair Redford are better than the writing they're being given. She doesn't say anything all that interesting. But the way she says it is so damn cute. She's embarrassed. She's awkward. And he makes her all-the-way say it. It was regular adorafest.

So then there's five minutes of of sexy fun time. But really, there was no way Ethan wouldn't confess about Sutton before taking the ole V-card from Emma. (Although - there was no way he'd make out with Sutton in the first place, but the powers that be forced that one down on him...)

The end of this scene is really irritating. Because Emma says, "As much as you deny it, and as close as we get, as much as you tell me that you love me, there's always going to be a part of you that wishes that you could be with her." and then HE says, "What do you want me to say?" and it's all wrong. First. He could be with her. Sutton her. Emma's point should be more along the lines of I can't trust you because obviously you just take whichever of us is around at the time. That's the problem here. And then his line shouldn't be like "GAR! What do you want?" it should be like "I stopped it before it went too far because she isn't you." But no. They want to play the will they/won't they with Emma and Ethan and that means screwing with their characterizations.

Anyway. That's that. I guess at this moment they are once again broken up. It's too bad because the fewer scenes they have as a couple, the fewer scenes I'm actually going to bother to watch. As the mutant enemy would say, "Grr. Argh."
