Is it hot in here? Or is it the returning action of The Lying Game?
Indeed, the mysterious ABC Family drama drops viewers back in to Phoenix on January 2, as Alexandra Chando told us in an exclusive interview that viewers can expect new twists and turns on the episode ahead, many of which were not included in the book series.
“Questions are answered," the star teased. "But new questions arise from there.”
The Lying Game Clip: "O Twin, Where Art Thou"
The winter season picks up right where The Lying Game left off this summer at Sutton’s birthday party. Look for Ethan, Thayer and Emma to try to locate the latter's twin, but Chando gave us one big reason why 2012 will be very different from 2011:
"This is the first time we won’t be privy to Sutton’s whereabouts.”
Other developments to come include Charisma Carpenter’s turn as Char’s Aunt Rebecca. »

The ABC Family series The Lying Game returns for the second half of Season 1 with Episode 1.11: O Twin, Where Art Tho? on Monday, January 2 at 8 Pm Et. Actress Charisma Carpenter, who plays Ann Rebecca Sewell on the series, recently held a conference call where she discussed the second half of The Lying Game's first season. Here's what she had to say.
Can you give us some insight into why Annie has been gone so long and her relationship with Phyllis?
Charisma Carpenter: Her relationship with Phyllis is sister. She's been gone so long because I think when she was there, she was in high school, and things did not go well for her. She was treated poorly, not well received. I think some very bad things happened to her and what they are exactly has not at this point been revealed to me. It's just touched on »
What is that under the Christmas true? It's a box full of love... or laughter... or entertaining drama.
That's right, readers, after weighing on on Best Show, Breakout Star, Best Villain and Funniest Show of 2011, our staff is back with a look at the year's top tandems. Read through the debate below and then chime in yourself:
Who Comprised The Best Couple Of 2011?
Matt Richenthal: Eric and Tami Taylor from Friday Night Lights. This is my answer for 2011 and would have been for 2010, 2009, 2008...
Eric Hochberger: Jaime and Cersei Lannister from Game of Thrones. Man, that's some good looking incest.
Carissa Pavlica: Emma and Ethan on The Lying Game. From the moment they met, their spirits were intertwined. He never thought she was her sister, and saw all of the unique and good qualities she had in an instant. They have a deep trust and it makes it incredibly easy to cheer them on. »

When The Lying Game returns to ABC Family next year, things are really going to be shaken up. Sure, there's the matter of Sutton disappearing, but there's also the return of a face from Ted (Andy Buckley) and Alec's (Adrian Pasdar) past that could reveal more secrets.
Charisma Carpenter -- you might've seen her recently on Supernatural, and you definitely remember her from Buffy and Angel -- is headed to the show as Rebecca "Annie" Sewell, Char's (Kirsten Prout) aunt who left Phoenix many years ago, and whose return will definitely ruffle some feathers. She recently talked to reporters about what to expect from Annie, including whether the fact that she looks very much like Alexandra Chando means anything -- could she be Sutton and Emma's actual parents? Highlights start in the next paragraph: »

The Lying Game Marathon to Air New Years Day
This past summer, ABC Family debuted The Lying Game, its second adaptation of a popular Sara Shepard book series. It didn't quite break through in the same way that the other adaptation, Pretty Little Liars, did, but for those of you either behind on the show or looking to add another show to your midseason schedule, it's not too late to hop on board.
Especially since ABC Family will be airing a marathon of the first 10 episodes of The Lying Game on New Years Day. Beginning at 9:00 Am, you'll be able to delve into the world of Emma and Sutton, twins separated at birth that have teamed up to find their birth mother. Along the way, they're confronted with the fact that Sutton's well-to-do, seemingly loving family may be hiding critical information and a whole host of secrets. The marathon concludes at 7:00 Pm, »

ABC Family’s addictive The Lying Game resumes its freshman run on Monday, Jan. 2 at 9/8c, and with it comes the addition of beloved Whedonverse alumna Charisma Carpenter as Char’s mysterious aunt Rebecca Sewell, whose sudden return to town rattles the über-secretive Ted and Alec — and TVLine has your exclusive first look at the lovely lady in action opposite Adrian Pasdar.
No word on what Rebecca’s agenda is — or whether her slight resemblance to Sutton and Emma could be a plot point — but expect to see her and Alec to take an interest in one another pretty early on. »

The Homeland producers promised us two things for the season finale: that we would have a sense of resolution and that new developments would leave us chomping at the bit for Season 2. Mission accomplished.
If good acting is as sexy to you as it is to me, you needed to sit on a towel by the end of Homeland Season 1. I’m still in shock that the Screen Actors Guild failed to recognize Claire Danes and Damian Lewis. At least the foreign press watched the show and came through with Golden Globe nominations. I hope that’s enough to get the Academy’s attention.
The only nominally lesbian thing I can pull out this week (dirty!) is that the smartest, most intuitive person on the show next to Carrie is Dana Brody, who a few weeks ago said she thinks she’s a lesbian because boys disgust her. »

Finally, the Brody family takes a vacation to one of my favorite childhood spots: Gettysburg. How could a day of history and happiness and hamburgers turn sinister? On Homeland, even a small town diner can be across the square from a master bomb maker.
This episode was devoid of Sapphic subtext, but if you ever had a shadow of a doubt that Claire Danes deserves an Emmy, this week settled the issue. Give her all the awards. While we're waiting for the nominations, let's enjoy the beatific smile of Morena Baccarin. Happy Jess makes us happy.

I like to sit down and find out for the first time what (more) »
