Eye Candy Finale: EP Explains Lindy's Big Move, Teases Season 2 Twist

Eye Candy Finale

The first season of MTV’s twisted thriller Eye Candy reached its explosive conclusion Monday, but as it turns out, bringing the Flirtual killer to justice is merely the beginning of Lindy’s journey.

Following Jake’s arrest, Lindy made herself scarce, without exchanging proper goodbyes with any of her friends in New York — including Tommy. As for Lindy’s sister, not only is Sara alive, but footage from Jake’s tablet suggests she faked her kidnapping in order to “keep Lindy safe.” (Um… what?)

TVLine took our burning questions to Eye Candy executive producer Christian Taylor, who was more than happy to explain Lindy’s motivations — and offer up a major hint at what a second season would have in store for fans.

Ready? Let’s do this…

TVLINE | In R.L. Stine’s book, the killer is one of Lindy’s roommates. Why didn’t you follow that in the show and make it Sophia?
The book was really more of a [starting point] for us, and after I developed the story, I departed from the book and kind of reinvented a lot of it. When I started developing the show with the writers, anybody could have been the killer, so we just had to decide what would be the most interesting or most extreme option.

Eye Candy FinaleTVLINE | And of course it was the guy with the accent.
[Laughs] Yes! We just really wanted to surprise people.

TVLINE | I’m glad Lindy and Tommy got some closure with that chat they had online. In your own words, where does that relationship stand now?
They’re definitely still at odds. There’s an olive branch that’s been extended to him, and it’s one of my favorite scenes when he says, “I’m sorry” to her at the end. It’s really moving. I’m excited to explore their relationship if we get a second season. Will they ever get together? I don’t know.

TVLINE | Well, you did give fans a little payoff with that make-out scene at the Airbnb.
You know, the fans really wanted them to kiss, so I gave them a kiss — even if it wasn’t a real kiss.

TVLINE | I don’t know, it was a pretty good kiss.
You know what’s funny? I think they kiss a lot better than Jake and Lindy kiss, which was really lucky. You never know what the chemistry is going to be like when you’re casting, but Casey [Diedrick] is great and Victoria [Justice] is lovely. It all worked.

TVLINE | Did you show us Jake’s backstory in the hopes of us sympathizing with him a little?
[Laughs] Well, I think sympathizing with a mass murderer is a hard thing to do. So I wasn’t trying to do that, but I wanted the backstory to maybe give a little insight into the mind of a psycho and to show what triggers him. That was the reason for going into his past.

TVLINE | And then there was that Sara twist. “Lindy will be safe” is going to haunt me forever. What does it mean?!
[Laughs] I’m not going to tell you anything! No, there’s going to be a big conspiracy that we’ll explore next season about why her sister did that. And I’ll say one thing: It will be linked to their father.

  4. Staci says:

    Please a second season!!! :)

  5. kayla marie says:

    PLEASE LET THERE BE A SEASON 2! YOU HAVE MY FULL ATTENTION! I’M ABSOLUTELY IN LOVE WITH THIS SHOW. :)

  6. This series is the best television show I have ever experienced. The meaning and passion is a referral to the real world today. I would enjoy seeing a second season. Every episode made me more FOMO than the last. I honestly enjoy your show “EYE CANDY” the most

  7. OMG that was one of the best thriller shows ever!! I hope the creators make at least 3 seasons!

  8. alistaircrane says:

    I wanted Sofia to be the killer like in the book. :-/

  9. Jessica says:

    Season 1 totally has me wanting more. Please bring a season 2 ASAP!! Absolutely love this show.

  10. I don’t no about everyone else but I personally love the show it is so awsome because I never thought that Jake would be the killer but me and my mom think that Jake isn’t the only killer maby he could just be working with the killer. But any ways I would just like to say I am a big fan of the show and Victoria because she inspires me because when I grow up I want to be a singer and a dancer and I want to right my own songs and I really want to learn how to play the guitar,piano,trombone,and violin and I no it’s kind of weard that a 10year old is telling you all of this oh and in the show lindy besides Jake has a great taste in men Ben,and tommy are super cute and don’t get me ring if Jake wasn’t such a meany he wouldn’t be so bad so there that’s all I got to say oh by the way in the movie Victoria looks really pretty.

  11. Ashley says:

    There better be a season 2!!!

  12. Eder Lopez says:

    I think that this has been one of the Best shows so far MTV has put out there recently. Most of this shows are ehh same story blah blah. I think that Teen Wolf is a pretty good show but hands down Eye Candy has by far been the best show of these recent times. There definitely needs to be more seasons of this show! I cannot wait to see them! For sure tho keep Victoria and Casey as the main people. Don’t kill their characters by putting other people or killing them in the show. The show would not be the same without them. but yesss BY FAR BEST SHOW I’VE EXPIRIENCED IN A WHILE. EYE CANDY SEASON 2 PLEASEE!!!!!!

  16. Ashley says:

    Loved the show. I wasn’t expecting to, watched it on a whim, and now I’m crazy about it. I hope that MTV gives it a second season.

  17. Hailey R says:

    If there isn’t a season 2… I’ll just keep endlessly wondering what life is. That’s how special this show is. Me and my bestfriend watched t every Monday, all we needed were blankets and some kind of mini snack. We would totally forget about our phones.

  18. Beedon says:

    I loved it, hope there will be season 2. And I also want Tommy and Lindy together.

  19. Ashley says:

    Renew the show! Best & freshest show MTV has right now, would be a huge mistake to not have a Season 2. Dying to figure out more about what’s going on with Lindy’s sister & of course see Tommy/Lindy (Tindy) happen!

  20. lauren ratcliffe says:

    I think it was good that Tommy and lindy chated over the computer like they were taling to each other but I think he shouldvof told her he liked her and I think they should of kissed

  29. gabriela says:

    This show was very addicting! Fell in love with the characters. Hope for season 2

  30. I got hooked right away, it’s a great show and I can’t wait for it’s return. I want Tommy Lindy to get together!! Awesome show “Eye Candy”!!!!! Please return asap, there is so much more to see and I do hope it does return!!!!

  31. Larena Navarro says:

    SEASON 2!!!!! I absolutely LOVE this show I got hooked the first episode! MTV would be dumb not to give it a second season. Every minute of this SHOW had me on my toes. Ugh. I need more !!!😄 It would haunt me never knowing what happened to Sarah !

  32. Ally Hidalgo says:

    I was very certain Jake was the virtual killer from the very beginning because of how he had just met her and he just shows up at her place. I love how the writers gave him a good back story of his past. I do however believe that there is probably more than just one killer out there in the show. Something about the Live Chat scene with Tommy and Lindy and that little side smirk and the way Jake looked at Tommy made me feel like Tommy is hiding something and there is more to him then we know. It may just be my imagination but I am so EXCITED for season 2!! :D

  33. Margarita says:

    I really enjoyed watching the show!! And I cant wait to watch season 2. Hope Lindy and Tommy will date. I wanna see them together!

  34. Rachel says:

    this show has been too much too gone too fast! I absolutely adore the characters and the cast and the show had me wrapped up in the flirtual killer drama since the first episode! The season finale was nothing short of jaw dropping awesomeness, but I’m going to miss it so much! I already don’t know what to do with my Monday nights… Hoping for Season 2 and some answers!!

  35. Ramon says:

    I really enjoyed this season, especially the season finale, so I hope they do a second season!!!

  36. Kari says:

    The season finale was really good. I hope there is a season 2 I really want to know why Sara did what she did.

  37. katy says:

    I loved Eye Candy.I was also surprised that Sarah had not actually been kidnapped. That was a really good twist.I am very sorry for Tommy,because I think Lindy and Tommy very well fit together. I’m really hoping make will be season 2.This was my favorite show.Please make will be season 2!!!
    Tommy and Lindy perfect couple forever!

  38. Essie says:

    This show has become one of my favorites. The season finale was awesome. I can’t wait for season 2 if there is going to be one! It has to be.

  39. erica guevara says:

    Eye candy is the best i love how they put it together and mysterious this show is!!! Please second season there should be cuz this show did not suck at all.

  40. Alyssa says:

    Oh my gosh! This season finale had me on the edge of my seat! My jaw dropped at the ending of the show! Will there be more?! This CAN’T possibly be the end????

  41. Robb7 says:

    Great show — needs a 2nd season to iron out the details and answer some real questions!

  42. Ange says:

  47. jm says:

    Some Open Questions:
    – How did Lindy contact George?
    – Who was working with Jake at the cyber crime unit?
    – Who take care of Jake after his parent´s deaths?
    – Did Sarah and Jake know each other?
    – How did Tommy enter on the captains office?
    – If Jake had someone working with him at the police station, may he be able to escape?
    – Does Connor still have his job?
    – Has anyone thought that the black cop was going to kill George (or put him in jeopardy)?

    About the show, i did love it. Noone is safe and i like it. Only George has not been put under a death thread. I dont like Tommy, so for me i dont care about this selfish character. I would have love that he bite the dust in the finale… or at least something. He is presumptuous

  48. Rayrenis says:

    I love it , please we need a second season but right now im in love with tommy OMG! Can’t wait 😍😍😍😍😍😍😍
