With only two episodes left in Eye Candy‘s freshman season, time is running out for leading lady Lindy to expose the Flirtual killer and track down her sister — but first, a little boy drama.
Following last week’s reveal that Tommy and the cyber crimes unit concealed crucial information from her, Lindy is understandably keeping her distance in Monday’s episode (MTV, 10/9c), and star Victoria Justice tells TVLine it’ll be quite some time before her character is ready to trust anyone.
Scroll down for all of Justice’s thoughts on Eye Candy‘s penultimate hour, as well as her take on the Jake/Tommy fan war and a hint at what we can expect from the March 16 finale.
TVLINE | Lindy and Tommy’s relationship — their friendship, whatever it was — seems beyond repair. Can they ever get it back?
Their relationship is definitely fractured. The trust is completely gone. She doesn’t trust him or the cyber crimes unit, and rightfully so. She’s angry that they withheld information about her sister, which is the most important thing she’s searching for in her life. There’s a resentment now that’s not going to go away in the next episode; she’s going to have to work through it over time.
TVLINE | As much as I appreciated her storming off, I’m going to miss Lindy being part of that machine.
I did love having Lindy involved with the cyber crimes unit, especially because she and Tommy were able to save so many people, but that last twist really shook things up. And I actually love that Lindy isn’t afraid to speak her mind. You do her wrong and she’s out of there.
TVLINE | The hunt for her sister has been on hold for a bit, but now it seems like it’s back to being Lindy’s main focus. Is that accurate?
Yes, you’re definitely going to see that storyline become a much bigger part of these final two episodes. It becomes Lindy’s main focus again, and she’s getting some clues that are finally leading her in an interesting direction. I honestly don’t think people are going to see what’s coming at all.
TVLINE | When it comes to the guys on the show, specifically Tommy and Jake, do you have a preferred match for Lindy?
Tommy and Lindy definitely got off to a rough start; they’re both Type-A personalities who like to take charge. But I also like that they have a good cop/bad cop relationship. They’re both attracted to each other, which is understandable, because Casey Diedrick is very attractive and one of the nicest guys ever. I like the juxtaposition of the two. As far as Jake and Lindy go, I also like that relationship because Jake is one of the first guys since Ben’s death who she’s really taken a liking to. He goes out of his way to make her feel special and he’s good looking — and he’s a lawyer. I honestly can’t say if I’m Team Jindy or Tindy.
TVLINE | There are a lot of balls up in the air right now. Will the finale give fans closure, or only more questions?
You’ll definitely get some resolution. You’ll find out who the Flirtual killer is, and the way that unfolds is super sunspenseful and crazy. You’ll be on the edge of your seat, I promise. And there are other aspects we have to leave you hanging with. If we get a Season 2, we can’t wrap everything up too neatly. So you’ll be satisfied in some ways, thirsting for more in others.
