Get More: Exclusive, First Look, Video

Time to pick a side, Lying Game fans: Team Ethan or Team Thayer?

This Tuesday’s installment of the ABC Family drama (9/8c) pits Emma’s two loves against each other — and we have your exclusive first look at their long-overdue throwdown.

Looking for a fight, Thayer begins to verbally poke Ethan after their mutual ladylove chooses to stay with him rather than go back to her ex — an action we can’t quite wrap our heads around since, as stated above, he got the girl. That said, Ethan’s fine with the taunting because it essentially gives him the go-ahead to deck his frenemy.

Watch the guys go at it below, then hit the comments with your thoughts: Who’s better for Emma?

  • Thayer for Emma! And Ethan for Sutton

  • How about neither one of them? They were both in love with/sleeping with her twin sister. That’s a little creepy and it makes Emma seem like their second choice. Also, I don’t trust Thayer. I have a feeling he might turn out to be a bad guy.

  • Team Ethan for sure!!! Thayer is super needy and needs to go away. Emma still loves Ethan.. she will go back to him eventually, I hope :)

    • I think she will after the talk she had with Kristen, unless Sutton does something before Emma decides/

  • OMG some of these team Ethan arguments make me laugh.

    Sure Thayer is acting like a douche in this clip but he’s worried about losing Emma. Her technically lost Sutton to Ethan and Emma/Ethan were in love at some point so he has something to be worried about. But like Ethan is always a douche to Emma. He prefers Sutton to her and I think anyone who says differently is watching a show that’s not The Lying Game.

    Yes Thayer slept with Sutton and at one point had feelings for her, but once he decided he wanted Emma he didn’t switch back and forth. He wanted Emma so he stayed with Emma’s side. Ethan can’t do that. He loves Emma but he kisses Sutton, he’s a little in love with Sutton but he kisses Emma. He can’t make up his mind and if they do put him back together with Emma (which god I hope they don’t) he’s just going to be confusing and hurt her.

    And I don’t get why people think Thayer can’t be trusted. He’s done nothing but show he can, unlike Ethan who kissed Sutton (technically cheating) while he was with Emma.

    The relationship Emma and Thayer have is pure because they are both there for each other in a mutual way. Emma was there for him when Alec was arrested and Thayer’s been there for Emma through almost everything – even when she was a little selfish and even when he left they got back together right away.

    In case you couldn’t tell I’m #teamThayer. Because of the fact that yes, he did sleep with Sutton, but there hasn’t been any danger of him wanting to go back to her since he got to know Emma, they have chemistry but they also have a lasting friendship that strengthens their relationship and makes then honest and comfortable with each other.

    One of my favorite scenes was when Thayer found her at the bus stop and asked her to stay in LA. Not even because of all the cute stuff but because of one line, “Did you come back for me or because you need my help?” and she answered so honestly, I was super worried she’d said the wrong thing – but I was also happy that her “Both.” acknowledged that yeah she wanted him like relationship wise but also that she needed his help.

    They have an awesome relationship okay?

  • Team Thayer, Emma and Thayer are perfect for each other. Thayer has always been the for her whenever she needed him. He doesn’t go back and forth with the twins like Ethan. Ethan says he love Emma but everytine they get into a conflict he leaves. And is always found somewhere with Sutton. Thayer and Emma when they fight they work it out. I believe that Thayer is truly in love with Emma.

  • Team Ethan!!!! I’m not sure why but I’ve always gotten a creeper vibe from Thayer. Maybe it’s because of the character he played on GH lol As the season goes on I keep expecting something dark and twisted to be revealed about him.

  • Maybe it’s just me but I am over Ethan cheating on Emma… and I think people are holding that against him way too much. I dont’ condone it not at all but I also not naive to think that each time he was with Sutton you can tell Ethan’s heart was not in it.. Just because you are physically with Someone doesn’t mean you are “With them” Now I am not saying Ethan wasn’t wrong with what he did of course he was. But people act like this is the worst thing he could ever do and he can’t come back from it.. this is a teen drama show he probably could get past it. and honestly I don’t care because at least he got his head stuck out of his head about Sutton… That is what started this to begin with he thought Sutton could change and he found out she couldnt so he was done with her and that is not going back and forth that following your heart to the person who has always HAD it and that was Emma and I am for one am cant wait For Ethan to actually fight for Emma.. That is what Thayer is afraid, he wants Ethan to back down but guess what he doesnt.

    Also Thayer is an ass, what kind of guy brags about having sex with a girl he supposely cares about… Thayer doesn’t give a crap about Emma… if he did he wouldnt have said that comment to begin with Thayer is just as a jerk about the twins that people say Ethan is… difference is Thayer is hiding behind a good guy facade so people wont think he is an ass for it. The dude gets freaking jealous at the mention of Ethan name and he stands there gloating about sleeping with her as though she is some prize to be won yeah he is really classy guy… I am so glad Emma decided to stay with a guy like who seems to care about is getting the right TWIN to like him which is what Thayer was all about along.. Sutton rejects him so he goes after her twin sister.. pathetic if you ask me.

    • Sutton isn’t just Emma’s twin, she’s a borderline sociopath who’s basically declared war on Emma and has done horrible things to her and the people she cares about. If Ethan cared about Emma at all, he wouldn’t get within a thousand miles of her. There’s no bigger slap in the face than getting with her worst enemy who means her harm. Ethan had a chance to prove he cared about Emma by acknowledging their breakup was his fault and trying to prove himself to her. Instead, he blames her, uses her when he needs her and fawns all over Sutton, excusing her and encouraging her. The show’s doing a pretty good job of letting us know that Ethan loves Sutton no matter what and really doesn’t care about Emma at all.

  • TEAM ETHAN! THAYER NEEDS TO LEAVE THE SHOW ASAP & I DONT REALLY CARE WHAT ANYONE ELSE HAS TO SAY ABOUT THAT!

  • Team Thayer! Unless he’s going to keep being a jerk…then Emma needs to find a new guy.

  • Am i the only one after yesterdays episode who kind of wants to see where this thing between Laurel en Ethan is going to? they have a really nice chemistry i think.

    Comment by Stacy – February 20, 2013 03:53 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Thayer is clean and concise. He’s crazy about Emma and knows Sutton is no-good. Meanwhile Ethan is all conflicted. One second he’s into Emma, and everyone is all: “he still has feelings for Sutton”. Then he’s into Sutton and everyone is all: “he still has feelings for Emma.” Plus, we know that when he was given the option between REAL Sutton, (you know when she isn’t acting like a raving witch) and real Emma, he picked Sutton. But, then again they have been pointing out how much Emma is actually like Sutton. Sutton slept with Thayer and didn’t mean it. I think Thayer is perfect for Emma, but I don’t think Emma is over Ethan. So it’s totally unfair to Thayer for Emma to pull a Sutton and sleep with Thayer for the wrong reasons. I mean, when you think about it, it seems like Thayer is only there to be used by the Mercer twins. Poor guy.

  • Team Ethan. Thayer seems to have some childhood baggage with Alec which has not surfaced. Thayer is also pretty whiny. Ethan is an open book.
