Plus, which ‘lucky’ girl will Jordan finally settle on: Mads? Laurel? Both? Read on for the answer!

Jordan may spend most of his time hooking up with girls in pools on The Lying Game this season, but Ryan Rottman assures that his character is more than just a motorcycle-riding bad boy with flawless helmet hair. “He does have skeletons,” Ryan tells me. “And they’re definitely going to come out.”

Read on for my full Q&A with Jordan:

Let’s be honest, this show is insanely complicated? Did you play catch-up before you joined?

“When I first found out I got the part, I watched all 22 episodes in three days. It was funny because when I got there, I was like, ‘Oh my God, this is crazy! Thayer and Emma?!’ It was cool, because it made me become a fan.”

Speaking of hookups, should we expect more from Jordan and Mads? And what about Laurel?

“Things get pretty hot and heavy … and Jordan does go back forth between Mads and Laurel. You start to figure out why he’s seeing both of them, and what his plan is.”

I assume that plan includes more pool sex.

“[Laughs] That was my first day filming. I literally dove right in: ‘Hey, nice to meet you. I’m about to jump into the pool in my boxers and kiss you.'”

What about Jordan and Alec? Will that relationship become less dodgy?

“I was dodging him, but we live in the same house now. The relationship evolves to the point where he kind of ends up on my side, and we become much more cordial than we started out.”

Jordan’s not Rebecca’s real son. Will we learn more about their family history?

“Right, I’m not her real son. The more the season goes on, the more you learn about why Jordan’s out there, why they’re so close, and why he would even help her. He confides in her, and their relationship gets explored quite a bit.”

And, of course, there’s the whole twin mystery. Will Jordan keep digging into that, or leave it alone?

“He’ll keep digging into it. As the season goes on, you’ll figure out why he’s there and what he knows, and whether he might be in on the secret.”

What do you make of Ryan’s little hints? Do you think Jordan is in on Rebecca and Sutton’s scheme? Drop me a comment with your best theories, and check out ABC Family’s official Lying Game page for more show info.!
