Exclusive First Look: Charisma Carpenter Plays a Sexy Lying Game With Adrian Pasdar

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.

“She comes on as a foxy lady and stirs up some trouble,” series lead Alexandra Chando told TVLine’s Inside Line earlier this month. “She definitely has a past with Alec and Ted (played by Andy Buckley), and that’s revealed as soon as she sees both of them.”
