the lying game
Sadly, the game is over for one of our favorite ABC Family shows. After less than two full seasons, ‘The Lying Game’ is putting its lies to bed — for good. After two seasons of lies, betrayal and twin shenanigans, The Lying Game has been cancelled. The teen drama will not return for a third…
Plus, Charisma weighs in on the ‘Veronica Mars’ movie and more! Watch our interview below. When we last saw Charisma Carpenter on The Lying Game‘s spring finale, her shady character was allegedly pushing Alec Rybak through a skylight. So when Rebecca’s portrayer paid a visit to HollywoodLife.com‘s New York office recently, I had to grill her. “We never saw her!”…
The midseason finale introduced the strongest potential suspect yet — and by ‘introduced,’ I mean the murderer was right under the twins’ noses all along!
Just when I thought I had The Lying Game all figured out, the March 12 spring finale proved there’s no telling what’s going to happen next in Phoenix. Though we still don’t have a definitive answer about who killed Derek and Theresa, a surprising — and seemingly guilty — party emerged as a new suspect this week. Are you ready? It’s kind of a doozy…
Which Phoenix resident could be going down in flames tonight? Charisma has the answer.
Lying Game fans, it’s all come down to this: The March 12 spring finale is here at last, and Charisma Carpenter assures us the biggest surprises — and Rebecca’s lowest moments — have yet to be seen. “She’s unravelling,” Charisma tells HollywoodLife.com of the monstrous mom. “She’s running out of allies, everyone is feeling alienated by her, and I have no idea what’s going to happen next.”
Which guy will Emma choose to be with? Watch HollywoodLife.com’s exclusive first look at the spring finale and weigh in! As if Emma (Alexandra Chando) didn’t already have enough on her plate, trying to figure out who killed Theresa and Derek, the secret twin will face another challenge on the March 12 spring finale of…
Plus, the police find a body! Who killed Theresa?
Does Rebecca (Charisma Carpenter) have any allies left? Because after watching the March 5 episode of The Lying Game, I’m thinking she might finally be all alone in her plans to win back Ted (Andy Buckley). Not only did Sutton (Alexandra Chando) officially move over to the side of good, but Thayer (Christian Alexander) also stopped accusing his dad — for once — and considered that Becky might actually be behind Derek and Theresa’s deaths. And we all know there’s no tougher nut to crack than Thayer.
The show’s executive producer promises an ’emotional’ roller coaster, with a cliffhanger that will leave you ‘screaming.’
With only one more episode left until The Lying Game‘s mid-season finale March 12, Emma (Alexandra Chando) is running out of people she can trust. So HollywoodLife.com went to the one person we know we can trust — the show’s executive producer Chuck Pratt Jr. — to get some of our burning questions answered, and to find out what we can expect from the final two episodes of the run.
As Rebecca’s lies get more twisted, the wicked wife is quickly losing allies! Is she about to crack?
Dan and Theresa’s wedding went off without a hitch on the Feb. 26 episode of The Lying Game — and by that, I mean absolutely no one got hitched. The bride remained M.I.A., and a full-scale investigation was launched; but the most shocking discovery was the one Emma (Alexandra Chando) made about her dad. In the episode’s final moments, Emma confronted Ted (Andy Buckley) at the grave where Theresa went missing, and she was holding the hospital I.D. card he left behind!
It was kiss-and-tell week on ‘The Lying Game,’ and pretty soon there won’t be any couples left!
Has Rebecca’s (Charisma Carpenter) wicked little plan finally come to fruition? The Feb. 19 episode of The Lying Game marked the official demise of the Mercers’ marriage after Alec (Adrian Pasdar) was caught kissing Kristen (Helen Slater) at the club — which, of course, Rebecca couldn’t wait to bring to Ted’s (Andy Buckley) attention. And in other unsurprising news, it wasn’t long before Ted and Rebecca found themselves in a little lip lock of their own!

With Laurel (Allie Gonino) finally in on the big secret, Emma (Alexandra Chando) and the boys plotted to expose Sutton and Rebecca (Charisma Carpenter) on the Feb. 12 episode of The Lying Game. Their plan went down at the flip-side formal, and just to make things extra complicated, Ethan (Blair Redford) took Emma as his date instead of Sutton! Let the madness begin.
But will Laurel help Emma take down Sutton & Rebecca, or will she reject her for lying for so long?
Rebecca (Charisma Carpenter) and Sutton (Alexandra Chando) have done a pretty good job of keeping their secrets to themselves — until tonight, that is. Not only did Emma learn the truth about her paternity on the Feb. 5 episode of The Lying Game, but her discovery inspired a game-changing confession that brought Laurel (Allie Gonino) into the fold. In a nutshell, this show just got even more complicated.
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 HollywoodLife.com 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.”
Plus, a major twist in Alec’s murder investigation leaves everyone scared for the future.
After a night of uninhibited passion, Ethan (Blair Redford) told Sutton (Alexandra Chando) those magical words every girl dreams of hearing from the guy she loves: “Sorry, this was a mistake. It’ll never happen again.” Oh, Ethan — you’re such a romantic! Of course, this is The Lying Game we’re talking about, so there were plenty more awkward moments to come.
Plus, is Alec really innocent after all? This is madness.
The twins’ love lives got even more complicated on the Jan. 15 episode of The Lying Game, as Emma (Alexandra Chando) gave Sutton her blessing to pursue Ethan (Blair Redford). Like she really needed it. Meanwhile, Emma finally gave into her feelings for Thayer (Christian Alexander), which sent Ethan into a jealous/drunken stupor — and straight into Sutton’s bed.
