What You Need To Know For The ‘Faking It’ Mid-Season Finale

Shane (Michael Willett) and Liam (Gregg Sulkin) are both in relationship hell. (MTV)

It doesn’t seem possible but we’re already coming up on the 10th episode of the second season of “Faking It.” 

The good news is that we’ll be getting ten more episodes in 2015 and the series, developed by Carter Covington and starring Rita Volk, Katie Stevens, Michael Willett, Gregg Sulkin and Bailey De Young, will be back with ten more episodes. Yay!

In the meantime, the mid-season finale is fast approaching and airs this Tuesday so here’s a helpful guide to keep all the drama in place as we see where things end up.

Secrets & Lies: The second season secret has been that Amy (Volk) and Liam (Sulkin) slept together in the first season. They’d all done a good job of hiding it from Karma (Stevens) even as others found out but Liam did the right thing and came clean at the end of the episode 8. Karma surprisingly wasn’t pissed at Amy mostly because she assumed Liam was the one responsible for it happening. Wrong! At the end of the last episode, she found out it was much Amy’s fault as Liam’s so Karma is back to being pissed. Is it worse being duped by a guy or your BFF? (Though I hope we see more of Regan, Amy’s latest GF. Love her!)

Shane is hopeful he'll get Duke back...but will Lauren (Bailey De Young) have Theo? (MTV)

A Gay Romance…Stalled?: Just as we were getting used to seeing Shane (Willett) dating Duke (Skyler Maxon), it was only a matter of time before we found out Duke wasn’t really that closeted — only in his business aspirations as an athlete seeking endorsements. And when he chose his endorsements (with a homophobic company), Shane was out, though he’s still hopeful they can get back together and work something out. I have to say I’m impressed that Shane didn’t go all drama queen and wants to work things out. Let’s hope the two guys can. They’re so cute together! But with Duke signing with Cluck-N-Go and having a beard for press, Shane may have an uphill battle.

Truth: Lauren (De Young) came clean with Theo (Keith Powers) about being intersex and while he told her he was fine with that and liked her, he also has something to tell her and got cut off when he tried. We last saw Lauren waiting for Theo to show up after school but, alas, he didn’t show. Did he flake or will she find out what he wanted to tell her? And what could that secret be?

Epic Finale: When I recently saw Covington at the Paley Center for Media’s LGBT Gala, he did tell me that this finale was pretty epic and everyone has big stuff happening to them. Honestly, the show has been solid this season so I suspect we’ll get to a good place with next week’s cliffhanger that will definitely keep us wanting more for the remaining Season 2 episodes.

“Faking It” airs Tuesdays at 10:30pm on MTV.
