Emerald City - Everybody Lies

The final scene of "Everybody Lies" is the most interesting of the entire episode as Dorothy's (Adria Arjona) journey to find the Wizard (Vincent D'Onofrio) comes to an end. Before we get there, however, there's trouble for Dorothy and her new friends. Delivered into the clutches of West (Ana Ularu), Dorothy is caged and tortured by the witch who, despite her ability to read memories, is completely incapable of seeing the truth of Dorothy's journey and the events concerning the witch's death. Eventually helped by Tip (Jordan Loughran), Dorothy manages to escape and walk right into the Wizard's private chambers carrying a loaded gun without a single guard offering even the most token effort of resistance.

While we have to wait for at least another episode for Dorothy to get the answers she seeks, her former companions have their own troubles. Tip is trapped working for the flighty West. The cyborg Jack (Gerran Howell) is forced into the service of the spoiled Lady Ev (Stefanie Martini), who is willing to let the whole world burn to spite the Wizard. And after discovering a bit more about his past, Lucas (Oliver Jackson-Cohen) decides to turn himself in.
