The Lying Game Season 2, Episode 3’s Biggest WTF Moments
Watching The Lying Game is like riding a roller coaster made of floppy-haired hunks and WTF bombs. The show is all kinds of brilliant (mostly because of Ethan's public drunkenness), but every now and then we finger-wag at the television in horror and confusion. We've rounded up the biggest head-scratchers from Season 2, Episode 3 for you to look back on! 1. Um, Bye Thayer? Thayer Rybak (Christian Alexander) is leaving on a jet plane, don't know when he'll be back again. Apparently, this dude is super sensitive; he's basically the Frodo of The Lying Game (nerd references), and seeing Ethan (Blair Redford) and Emma(Alexandra Chando) partake in a sexy hug was too much for her emotionally fragile little brain to handle. Yep, Thayer is moving to Los Angeles –– which may or may not mean he's been written off the show. Uhhhh, see you never?
2. Alec and Rebecca's Sex Scene Haunts Us OUR EYES.Alec (Adrian Pasdar) and Rebecca's love-making (that's what it's called when it's between middle-aged people) has made us never want to touch another human being again. It was like some perverted hybrid between an '80s Bonnie Tyler music video and the beginning of a soft-core porn. There was wind, candles, inexplicable roses, and extremely billowy white curtains that danced around Alec as he made sweet, murdery love to his wife. Basically, we are blind. Are you happy, ABC Family? Are you happy?
3. Mads Continues to Hook Up With Her Stepbrother, and It Continues to Be Weird Please excuse us while we heavy-breathe into this paper bag and try not to regurgitate our pizza. It was one thing when Mads (Alice Greczyn) and Jordan had drunk swimming pool sex before knowing they were related by marriage, but their semi-incestual hookups need to stop. Sure, they don't share the same skinny genes, but they're basically brother and sister. This is Marsha and Greg Brady all over again.
4. Does Phoenix Lack Underage Drinking Laws? Real talk: When did all kids in this show become drinkers? Not only does Ethan while away his days passed out in a lawn chair surrounded by beer, but Mads is constantly getting wasted on vino. But guys? It all makes so much sense. Apparently Phoenix has zero liquor laws. Did you see Mads and Laurel (Allie Gonino) waltz into that club? Not only did they fail to get carded, Mads hit up the bar like a seasoned vet. Pull yourself together, Arizona. Think of the children.
5. Ethan Remains Unshowered We'd like to take a moment to point out that Ethan spent most of this episode wearing an extremely dirty man tank (like, we've never seen anything more stained). At this point, we're worried that his trailer doesn't have water. Please shower, Ethan. For the love of patchouli, please shower. Also, shout out to the prop team for having Ethan sip on a mysterious red bottle of "Cola" –– not to be confused with the actual soda, "Coca-Cola."
