The Lying Game s02e10 Episode Script

To Lie For

A few months ago I discovered I had a twin sister.
And then she asked me to take her place, keep the secret, find our real mother and try to stay alive.
Put yourself in my shoes.
How long could you keep up the lying game? Theresa is missing.
Give me one night tonight.
You are my brother! And you lied right to my face.
Everything okay? Dan threw him out.
You're always welcome to stay on the couch.
Ah! I just want to know where I stand.
You're going to a hotel with Alec? That's none of your business.
What makes you think that's what I want? I kissed you.
One-half for you, the other half I'm saving for Emma.
What does she have over you? Let's just say I have Rebecca's trust.
So, yesterday, I saw Rebecca in her bedroom locking this box in a cabinet.
You would do anything to protect me, wouldn't you? Anything.
Theresa! Dan, you know you can't go there.
Get away from me! Get the hell away from me! Hey, hey, come on, man! Hey, we can take your car.
You can take your car and meet 'em there.
I just need to see I just need to be with her.
There's nothing else you can do.
Like hell there isn't.
Look at you people.
With all your secrets, your lies.
Someone here did this.
I'm gonna find out who it is.
And when I do, I swear to God! Hey, man, you're blowing it.
We're gonna do this, we're gonna do it right, but we're gonna do it by the book.
Hey, let's just go.
You have my word.
Let's just go.
- Emma - I have to.
Emma, come on.
Emma I'm so sorry.
I feel that this is awful.
Yeah, it is.
Yeah, and look, the fundraiser's this weekend, but something's come up.
I don't know how appropriate it would be for me No, don't cancel.
Just find another keynote speaker.
Listen, I got to jump.
Take it easy, big guy.
If it's any consolation, I know just how you feel.
You really know how I feel, Alec? Because I just said good-bye to the only woman I'll ever love.
And, well, look at that.
I can't even feel this.
Listen, Dan, if you need if you need some time No, no.
I don't I don't need time.
I need the truth.
And I need the facts.
The fact is is Rebecca's the killer.
See, that's a theory.
What I don't know is what you told Theresa.
I'm betting whatever it was, is what got her killed.
Listen Whoa! Hey, hey.
You're gonna tell me right now what happened to her, or I swear to God I will kill you right here in this hallway.
I know, I know, I know you're upset.
It's okay.
Okay, all right, there is something we've been keeping from you.
Ethan myself Theresa, and the twins.
What are you talking about, twins? There's another Sutton, and her name's Emma.
See ya, Thayer.
Well, this changes everything.
Back in my room, before the sirens, I asked you for the truth.
I I don't even remember.
Yeah, you do.
You were avoiding it then, and you're avoiding it now.
You cannot get Ethan out of your head.
I felt it since we slept together.
Right away, you started to pull back.
And now, tonight, at the pool, it's all about Ethan again.
Yeah, just, I'm really confused.
I have it's just thoughts.
I just have all this stuff in my head, and I haven't worked it out yet.
I don't believe you.
I think you already have.
Thayer, that's not fair.
No, no, not fair is you keeping this from me.
Being with me, getting what I thought was closer, when all you've been doing is thinking about him! I told you, I haven't worked it out yet.
Well, you need to, Emma.
It's a clear-cut choice.
It's him or it's me.
When you figure it out, let me know.
I'm sorry.
Didn't tell you about Ted.
And I know every second I didn't say anything could've made a difference.
I kept it from you a whole night.
A lot longer than that, little brother.
A lot longer than that.
I'd say you been lying to me since the two of them have, what? Switched places.
That's right.
I know all about 'em.
Who told you? Who cares who told me?! The point is you should have said something the second that you knew about it! Your my brother.
- I'm, I'm sorry.
- What?! I don't know what else to say! I'm sorry! Let me tell you something.
You got to make a choice.
You either choose family or you choose those twins.
Because you've had it both ways for far too long.
I wasn't sure where you'd end up tonight.
How's Dan? Did you see him? Yeah.
He's bad.
I just came by to pick up my stuff.
Look, Thayer said some stuff about how I'm not being honest with him, or with you or myself.
He gave me an ultimatum.
Stop right there.
But no, I'm I'm choosing you, Ethan.
I it's always been you.
Emma, it's too late.
What do you mean, it's too late? I've been lying to my brother for months.
I kept the secret, and now his fiancée is dead.
That's got nothing to do with Thayer.
It's because of my feelings for you.
That's not true.
Ethan, you can't do this.
Do what? Be honest? Emma, I fell in love with you, and both our lives went to hell.
Not because of us Yes, it was because of us.
We played along with the lie.
We became the lie.
I, I don't know what you're saying.
I think you do.
I think you knew this day was coming.
Please don't say it.
I won't.
So, when do you stop: when the balls run our or when you're not angry anymore? I'm just think that talking the gentle flapping of lips might be a little less taxing.
Hey! Sorry.
Okay, I sense this is about Thayer.
Or Ethan? Both.
It's about how I'm not being fair to them or anyone.
And Theresa, what happened.
And about how when this all comes out, and I'm pretty sure it will really soon, I'm gonna lose everything.
When you say "everything" I mean everything.
Especially Kristin.
I mean, of all the lies that I have told, the worst have been to her, and she's so innocent in all of this.
It's gonna hit her the hardest, Laurel.
Our mom is strong and smart.
Yeah, and she's been lied to by everyone, including her daughters.
A strong, smart woman would walk away from that.
What? I was trying to think of something funny and witty to say, but I can't think of anything.
Yeah, 'cause you know it's possible.
I'm gonna go take a shower.
Don't worry.
I'll get the balls.
All one million of them.
I didn't think you were coming back here.
Sleep seems to be a complete waste of time, and I guess I just figure that you would be off with, uh, some twin or another.
I am done with all of that.
I'm choosing family.
Then I need to know everything about Rebecca Sewell Rybak and who's been working with her.
You know that she's the mother of the twins? And you know how Sutton and Rebecca connected.
Yes, and they've been working together in secret, the whole Ted connection.
I've got all that.
Jordan was apparently doing stuff for her, but it was in the past.
He's definitely on our side now.
All right.
It doesn't matter how suspicious Rebecca looks.
If we don't have any proof, she will walk.
- Yeah? - This just came in.
Preliminary autopsy report.
"The cause of death: blunt-force trauma injuries, injury to the head area.
Probable weapon used: rusted metal object, fragments of green paint detected.
No water found in the lungs.
Time of death approximately "Limestone"? Limestone? Underneath her nails and remnants on her clothing.
Let's go.
I started all this.
If would have just told you I found Emma - from the beginning - Or if I would've told Kristin you were mine when I brought you home.
Look, honey, you can try and rewrite history all you want.
- It doesn't change anything.
- But if Rebecca is involved I don't care if Rebecca did or didn't do it.
I'll let Dan and the police figure that out, honey.
I have got to tell Kristin.
I can still save this family.
But she'll find out that I've been working with Rebecca all this time.
And what about Emma? Everyone who's on to this has accepted Emma, and they see her as you, and I know.
She's the more improved version.
I get that a lot.
Please, just look at it from Mom's point of view.
How many more lies can she take? If we dump this on her right now, it will blow up in our faces.
And then if that happens, she may never forgive us and then we're all rejected.
We can't take that chance.
We just need more time, Dad, for me and for Emma.
Promise me, Dad.
Hello, Emma.
I'm really not going to have this conversation.
Okay, then I'll talk and you listen.
I know you know the truth and that I've been working with Sutton.
And I think you know my motive also: to reunite our family, Ted and Sutton and you.
I told you.
I don't care.
But you need to know how much I love you, how I've always loved you.
And I never, never wanted you separated from Sutton.
I wanted you together in-in a nice home with a nice family, and if I had known that Alec was gonna split you up, I would've stopped it.
You have to believe me.
You know what? I want to believe you.
So much.
But you came to town, and you destroyed a family.
- You did nothing but tear us apart.
- I didn't handle it right.
Yeah, you sure as hell didn't.
Emma? You know what, no.
I have to ask you something, and I've been wanting to ask it ever since I found out you were my mother.
Did you even look at us before you let Alec take us away? Yes, I did.
And I held you, one in each arm.
You looked up at me, both of you, with your big, beautiful eyes and you were so quiet and so full of love.
And then I kissed you, each of you, and, um And you gave us away.
I gave you away.
Emma, I wasn't capable enough to care for you.
Oh, but you care now? I have cared for you every single day since I gave you up.
This has been a terrible struggle for me.
A struggle? Yes.
You want to know a struggle, Mom? Try foster care.
Try six different homes, a dozen schools.
You know, I didn't even know what a hug felt like until I got here.
I'm so sorry.
- No.
- Baby, I'm so sorry! I am, too.
So, we're 3.
1 miles from the cemetery.
Uh tire tracks, footprints all around, obviously.
Heel prints, high heel prints over here, over here.
There's evidence that, uh, Theresa's hands were were bound.
Struck from behind? Potential murder weapons everywhere.
Whatever it was, she most likely took it with her.
She? I got it from here, Danny.
Nice work.
- Are you okay, man? - No.
She died she died right here.
She died right here.
Can't take it.
I didn't know if I should have hugged her or slapped her.
You didn't believe her, did you? I don't know.
Emma, are you insane? You cannot go soft like this.
She's our mother.
I I want to believe that at some point, she loved us.
Well, of course she did.
I've felt the same things you're feeling, and that's when I fell under her spell, and now it's happening to you.
Just, it's hard.
Believe me, I know.
I mean, to think that our mother is a killer We just need to both be strong right now.
I'm realizing something.
Do I have anything to do with it? Everything.
When I was bouncing around from home to home, all I ever did was run away, and just being you and living your life, it's taught me to stand up for myself.
And stay? And stay.
- I DVR'd this.
- These are live images from the abandoned Taconic quarry where Scottsdale PD has established a perimeter.
We're awaiting confirmation, but sources tell us this is where noted defense attorney Theresa Lopez was killed.
I wonder what's in that bag.
I don't know.
It's too small to see.
Well, can't Thayer like, blow it up on his computer? You'd lose too much resolution.
Okay, we need somebody to tell us what's in that bag so I can tell them if it somehow points to Rebecca.
Who's gonna tell us that? The police? We're kids.
The don't really care about us.
I'm not talking about the police.
I'm talking about him.
I don't want to push my way into anything.
Maybe we can just go together.
I can't.
Ethan doesn't want anything to do with me, and for a good reason.
You should just go to him.
Are you sure? Yeah, I'll stay here.
Be careful.
Wish me luck.
So that's it then? You're just gonna hand Ethan over on a silver platter? Laurel, stop.
Ethan and I are done.
For good, forever.
We are not getting back together.
It is done.
- It's okay.
- No, it's not okay.
What about Thayer? Have you talked to him? He's totally MIA, and I haven't called because I have no idea what to say to him.
I I'm not sure how he's gonna take it.
Accordingly, Mrs.
Mercer expects to keep physical custody of both daughters, as well as the house, the cabin at the lake, Fine.
Whatever you want.
You know what I want? To know what happened to that $20,000.
I don't even care anymore.
I just don't want to spend the rest of my life wondering.
Can you give us a minute, please? The truth is, Kristin, I love you.
I've loved you since the day I met you in ninth grade, with your cheerleader skirt, your horn-rimmed glasses.
- Ted - And I have never stopped loving you.
No matter what my mistakes, there hasn't been one day when I haven't loved you.
And I know for the rest of my life, there won't be! And there's nothing that I want to do more right now than to come clean about everything, not just the money.
What else is there? - I can't.
- Please? I can't! Right now I can't.
I made a promise, - and I owe it to our daughters to keep it.
- Our daughters? - Yes! - What do they have to do with this? - Kristin, please.
- You know what? Just forget it.
This is just too much.
I don't know which one you are or what the hell you're doing here, but you got five minutes, and then I want you off my property.
Look, Emma and I Stop, stop.
I'm not gonna talk about Emma right now.
No, you're right.
This isn't about her.
All the lies started with me.
And if I could take all of them back, I would.
I lost so much along the way, including you.
Sutton, I I can't do this, okay? You don't have to do anything.
It's me.
I want to help.
I saw the news and the crime scene.
What did they find? Come on, please.
I spent all that time with Rebecca.
I can at least tell you whether or not something Let me try and make this up to you.
What was in that plastic bag? It was a a necklace.
It's like a little broken heart.
What? Did it look like this? It's a match.
Rebecca had two of them.
She gave one to Sutton.
She must have lost the other at the quarry.
Now I want my warrant.
You got it, Dan.
Go get her.
Pack a bag fast.
Upstairs Harry, all clear down here.
Search warrant.
The house is clear.
I know.
She's gone.
Damn it! Come on Sutton, think! You spent all that time with Rebecca.
You must know where she is! Okay, stop.
We should just let her go.
What? Why? After all this? Because if she gets caught, she's gonna be the one to tell.
Is that really how you want our mother to hear the truth about who you are? It's Rebecca.
Look at you two.
You're so beautiful.
God, this is so far from how I imagined we'd Where are you? I can't Sutton, we were so close to having everything that we dreamed of until it went so wrong.
Yeah, 'cause you killed two people.
No, I didn't.
I'm being framed! - By who? - I don't know! But I had nothing to do with Derek or Theresa's murder! You have to believe me! But that necklace It was meant for you.
I had it in a locked in, in a drawer in my bedroom.
I was saving it for you.
Why would I? Look, just where are you? I do not want you in danger.
I don't know who's behind this or why they're trying to pin it on me, but Please, girls.
I can't believe I'm leaving you again.
I've spent so long trying to find you and get you back.
You have to believe me that I love you so much.
So much! I gotta go.
Thank God you're here.
I wasn't sure you'd come.
Yeah, me neither.
I just want to tell you that I'm so sorry about all this.
You know, we'll just have to start over and start new lives.
Together? Well, of course.
I mean, leaving Ted and my girls, it's devastating enough.
I can't imagine doing this on my own.
What's in this for me? Why the hell would I go with you? Well, because if you don't, then I'll just make a call and make sure that you're sent away for what you've done.
I've got Mads and Alec on my side.
I'll take my chances with the accessory charge.
I'm not talking about what you've done for me.
I'm talking about what you did to your brother in Los Angeles.
You ready? Yeah.
Let's go.
I told Theresa that I didn't want to wear a suit to our wedding.
And here I am sporting one to her memorial.
I think this is, this is good, what Alec's doing.
Making this charity thing a tribute for Theresa, naming that clinic after her.
See, Alec doesn't, he doesn't do good things for no reason.
I'm sure he feels responsible.
We all do.
Well, I'm not going for Alec.
I'm going for Theresa.
Sutton, you look beautiful.
It's a sad occasion.
I just want to be there for Dan and Ethan.
What about you? Are you going for Alec? Are you guys together? No, no, we're not.
I don't know what we are, actually.
I mean, I could lie, say I'm done with him, that what happened was a crazy mistake, but I'm trying to set an example for you and Laurel; total honesty.
Of course.
So if there's ever anything you want to tell me There is, actually.
I I, honestly, there is something I want to tell you.
I just I love you Mom.
Honey, I love you, too.
I'm sorry.
I forgot.
There's something I need to do.
I'll meet you there.
Dad, what are you doing here? I came to tell Sutton that I can't keep my promise any longer.
That I have to tell Kristin everything.
And I told him that he can't.
Not yet.
Sutton, I know that you are scared, but we have to have learned by now, - these lies are getting us nowhere.
- He's right.
I can't keep doing this either.
You know I love Kristin as if she were my own.
And even if she hates me for everything that I've done, every minute that I am lying to her, I it just feels like it's breaking my heart.
So here's what we're gonna do: We're gonna go to this thing together tonight, Then, afterwards, I will get Kristin alone and I will introduce you as Emma.
No, that's, that's not that's not my place.
Can you just give us a second, please? Okay.
Okay, look, I'm gonna go into hiding until you tell me to come forward.
Whenever if ever Kristin wants to meet me, you'll just, you'll let me know.
Please, Emma, things with Kristin and me have gotten got so ugly, she might throw me out.
She might she might want you instead.
Sutton, come on.
This is your family.
It always was.
He was always your boyfriend.
I wish that were true.
Well, either way, this isn't just about a boy anymore.
You're gonna need this dress.
Let me get this for you.
Right? - Excuse me.
- Yeah.
What happened? Where's Emma? We switched back.
For the last time.
Uh sorry.
This is? It's Sutton.
Um, listen, I just want to thank you for stepping up and helping us crack the case against Rebecca, even though it meant turning against your own mother.
Of course.
I but Kristin's my mother.
But whether or not we find Rebecca, I'll always remember what you did.
Where's Jordan? - Gone.
- Gone how? I haven't seen him since last night, and I think he may have taken off with Rebecca.
Look, honey, I know our life has been a little crazy ever since Rebecca entered the picture, but, uh now that she's gone, I think things are gonna get much simpler.
So you're happy she just took off? Well, no.
I mean, as a D.
I wish she had stuck around.
I would've liked to have prosecuted her.
Convicted her.
Punished her for what she did to us.
But as a dad, yes.
I'm glad she's gone.
I want my family back.
I want Thayer back.
So you haven't given up on him? Honey, I love T.
No matter what's happened, he's always gonna be my boy.
You all right? I've been better.
I should've called or come sooner.
I just It's fine.
Kind of got my answer.
Thayer, I'm I'm so sorry.
I know I've been really unfair to you, and I owe you an explanation.
Why don't you shut that door? Alec, thank you.
Um thank you for honoring Theresa tonight.
I really appreciate that.
Uh, but mostly I want to thank I want to thank Theresa for loving me, and for agreeing to marry me, and showing me what it means to live a life of purpose.
Her passion is, ultimately, what got her killed, but it's also the legacy that she has left behind.
- And - Excuse me, sir, sorry.
- A lady asked me to give this to you.
- Sure.
This clinic will allow her work to go on forever.
And for that, I thank you all.
Hello, Alec.
Thanks for the call.
But I decided I couldn't run away after all.
You here to turn yourself in? Quite the opposite.
I figured it out.
All this time, I thought it was Ted.
And it was him I was trying to protect.
But now I know who the real killer is.
And I know you do, too.
Where have you been? I thought we all thought - That I ran off with Rebecca? - But you didn't.
You're here.
She wanted me to.
She threatened that if I didn't, she would turn me in for everything she has on me.
So what are you gonna do? Run away? I'm gonna face up to it.
I'm gonna turn myself in.
But not till tomorrow.
Tonight, I thought maybe you and I could ride up to Howl Peak? Hmm? Just the two of us? Mm.
Mm? I know it sounds crazy and stupid.
Sometimes crazy and stupid is good.
My car's the other way.
We can get you out of here.
I can hide you.
No more hiding.
But what are they gonna do to you? Ship me back to L.
? I don't know.
- It doesn't matter.
It's over.
- No! Jordan, no.
Forget you ever saw me.
Forget you ever knew me.
Jordan Lyle? Don't, please.
He didn't do anything.
Currently of Scottsdale? - Yes, sir.
That's me.
- Turn around, please.
Just go back to the party, Mads.
Jordan Lyle, you're under arrest for murder.
Murder? He had nothing to do with Theresa.
He didn't murder Derek Look, he's not talking about them! Mads, he's talking about my brother.
About what Dan said to you earlier Let me guess: you don't agree with him.
He meant it when he thanked you.
It's been a crazy ride.
I put you through a lot.
We put each other through a lot.
Anyway, no matter what happens, I'm going to work really hard to prove that I'm a good person.
No matter what happens? Ted's telling Kristin everything tonight.
And I just have this sick feeling that they'll choose Emma over me.
It's possible.
Yeah, um the way I deceived everyone, it's more than possible.
But something else could happen.
They could forgive you.
What are you saying? I'm saying that I forgive you.
You engineered it all.
Everything that's happened.
And it all went down like clockwork.
You know, you got a pretty vivid imagination for a cold-blooded killer.
But this blows it, doesn't it? You wanted me on the run, to spend my life as a fugitive, so they'd never look for the real killer.
Honey, come on.
We've been down this road before, haven't we? Not this road.
Isn't it amazing how far we'll go to protect the ones we love? Kristin I'm ready to tell you what I couldn't tell you before.
I talked to the girls there's something that you should know.
Something you should have known months, even years, ago.
It's about Sutton, and you should really Oh my God, Alec.
I just, I wanted to talk about it.
I I couldn't just let it go.
Yeah, don't worry about it.
But I am worried about it.
After tonight, I have no idea what my life will look like.
If I stay here, or or leave But I I just, I don't want things to end badly between us.
I still want to be friends.
Okay? I think you should go now.
- Thayer - I mean it.
Could we please just talk about it You need to go.
Go! Now.
I'm s I'm sorry.
