“I agree with your mother and we’ll have you listed as Emma Alexandra Mercer. Sutton deserves the same choice as you since you’re both twins and our daughters.” Ted stated.
“That sounds nice. I’d love to have a new birth certificate with my new name but I think we’ll have to get my records from my previous schools in order for me to enroll at Sutton’s school. I need to tell Sutton about everything that happened as well as my name change since she is my twin sister. I know that Sutton will be happy for me.” Emma informed her parents.
It had been four weeks ever since tragedy had struck at the country club with Alec’s fall and he had been on life support while the doctors desperately tried to save his life. Kristin had accepted Emma since she was Ted’s daughter as well as Sutton’s twin but she still had trouble dealing with the fact that Rebecca was their mother. Emma was doing well except with the idea that she was still considered a foster child in the Las Vegas system but all that was about to change. “Is this Emma Becker?” a strange voice asked.
Emma Becker and Sutton Mercer (Alexandra Chando) are the identical twin daughters of former lovers Ted Mercer (Andy Buckley) and Annie Rebecca Sewell (Charisma Carpenter) conceived out of an affair their parents had 17 years prior to the series. Before the beginning of the show, the only person who knew about the girls was Alec Ryback (Adrian Pasdar), Ted’s best friend and the man responsible for splitting his daughters up out of love for his wife Kristin (Helen Slater), who has no idea he’s Sutton’s biological father and that there are twins.
