The spring finale brought the dramz HARD CORE. Bam! Kristen finds out Alec slept with Rebecca. Bam! Sutton and Ethan find out Alec killed Lucas. Bam! Mads and Thayer secretly let the police search their house. Bam! They find the murder weapon. Bam! Alec and Rebecca get married. Bam! Alec gets arrested. Bam! REBECCA IS THE TWINS' MOM! AND SUTTON KNEW IT! AND THEY WERE WORKING TOGETHER (scheme TBA). Bam! See you in the summer season, bitches!
It was pretty easy this week to tell the twins apart. I mean, mad snaps to Alexandra Chando for making me looove Emma and haaaaate Sutton. That being said, the styling also helps us tell them apart:
Emma: straight hair, looks sad and/or hopeful. Sutton: curly hair, looks mischievious and/or bitchy.
Let's play a game. Guess the twin! Here we have straight hair, confused facial expression, and quasi-sensible running attire...
It's Emma "Elizabeth Wakefield" Becker! Not much to say about her outfit other than - where was that hidden in Sutton's Magic Closet? I can't picture Sutton running, let alone wearing a pair of practical shorts. Sutton would never wears shorts that loose-fitting.
How freaked out would you be to look over your shoulder from hugging your Mom to see this lurking outside of your window?
And what is that, exactly? Oh, just Sutton "Jessica Wakefield" Mercer, wearing shoulderpads that a football player would be like, "Those are a bit much."
I feel like pointing out the argyle and gold accents on her red belt. Not because I like them but just because it would be crazy to try and pretend like that belt's not happening right now.
That is a lot of belt. To give a girl credit, she makes it work. Here's the head-to-toe:
The checked shirt is cute, and unusual enough not to fight against the cray-cray belt. PS, her boots?
Seriously, though, someone who's never seen this show before could tune in to Sutton wearing this outfit and know right away who's the good twin and who's the bad twin.
I mean, this is like Catwoman meets Joan Collins on Dynasty meets Erica Kane in the 80s. Her shoulders are as wide as the entire rest of her body. This is not a lady you want to cross. When Sutton hand-picks an outfit for you? You take it, no questions asked.
Yes, I mostly just used this picture for the rare shot of the Magic Closet. Sutton in her natural habitat.
Aaaand you can totally tell this is Sutton dressing Emma, not Emma choosing her own outfit:
I'm usually a fan of these sort of Chanel style suits, but in this instance, the colour is kind of meh, and the skirt is way too short. Sorry, Ems!
Let to her own devices, Emma chooses this modest, kind of Duchess Kate style red top:
And, unlike her sister's shoulderpadderiffic ensemble, Emma goes with a simple trench for her trip to visit Ethan:
At this point in the show, I had a moment where I was like, "Which twin is that?" But then I saw the straight hair and the non-HBIC outfit and knew it had to be Emma. You can also usually tell from her sincere facial expressions.
Sutton goes from bitchface to smirk and nothing in between. I'm pretty sure Sutton's working hard to avoid needing too much Botox in her middle years, while Emma doesn't think twice about what her face does.
Oh, and also, Emma wore a fuschia trench to Alec and Rebecca's wedding. You'd think that would be a weird choice... until we get to Mads (wait for that in the next part).
We didn't see her dress very much (due to the trench) but from what I can see, it's hella cute. Kind of boho feeling, with a drop-waist and a classic neckline. That's a little bit of Emma showing through her Sutton disguise.
Guess the twin!
I know, this one's easy. Curly hair, psycho bitchface. Obvs it's Sutton. Wonder where she gets that bitchface from?
Oh, hey there, Bridezilla.
Is there any way that Rebecca can be Sutton's mother, but not Emma's? No?
