|Alec stalks Emma while she jogs.|
Ethan gets ready to face the judge while Emma waits for Mads during ballet rehearsal. Nisha sees Emma's journal and asks if she's in it, and when Emma says it was before she knew her, Nisha's like, " You mean when you were three?" Anyway, Nisha wants private lessons to improve her footwork for tennis. At home, Kristin and Ted give Emma the "bad boy" talk. Wait, does that even exist? Emma then sighs and gives that meaningless "Okay". (You know you've all done it)
|Kristin comforts Emma after her nightmare.|
In the morning, Emma and Sutton discuss why Emma had the same dream of drowning that Sutton had when she was a kid. They settle on having a psychic connection and conclude that maybe Emma and their mother suffered a traumatic event in the past and that's what the recurring nightmare is about. At school, Char rants on about how their friendship is failing and that "getting screwed-over by a sophomore" is not cool. Emma finds Ethan at the club and asks him to help her interpret her dream.
Justin wins the golf game with Ted and Alec and after he leaves, the men agree that Sutton must never find her mother. Nisha gets shown up by Mads at the ballet studio as Emma confronts Ted about Ethan's situation. Alec obviously wants Ethan to go to jail, and (there's a little bit of irony here as he says it) if it wasn't him, who could've broken into her house and stolen her laptop? Out of nowhere, Laurel confesses that she stole the laptop.
|Emma hugs Laurel|
At the Mercer house, Ethan arrives to hear Laurel's rehearsed apology about stealing the laptop. At the studio, the ballet teacher (what's his name?) turns Mads down cold even after her shirt is off. Nasty Nisha at it again: she snaps pictures of the two of them kissing. Then she visits Char and drops a bomb about Mad's affair with the ballet instructor. In the middle of nowhere, yet again, Emma is trying to interpret her dream when all of a sudden, she gets an epiphany . She wasn't drowning; she was trapped in a fire!

I'll be here next week to recapitulate the next episode of The Lying Game.
It's 5 hours 'till bedtime; I say watch, don't wait.
