Fantasy Island First Look: A Surprise Reunion Steams Up Elena's Holiday

Elena Roarke is about to be visited by a ghost — albeit a hot one — of Christmas past.

TVLine has an exclusive first look at the promo for Fox’s two-part Fantasy Island holiday special, premiering Thursday, Dec. 23 (8/7c), in which Elena is reunited with her ex-fiancé (played by CSI: NY‘s Eddie Cahill).

And how do we know who he is, you ask? Because Elena, when questioned about her erratic behavior, sings like a canary: “I’m just kidnapping my ex-fiancé from a Christmas movie!” No big.

The full-night event, appropriately titled “Welcome to the Snow Globe,” introduces Lindsey Kraft (Grace & Frankie) as a businesswoman whose “fantasy of a perfect Christmas and to meet ‘Mr. Right’ tests Roarke in unexpected ways,” according to the official logline. “Meanwhile, Mr. Jones faces his past, while a new Secret Santa tradition has Ruby and Javier looking to the future.”

Speaking of Ruby, she certainly appears to be opening herself up to new love, assuming that split-second shot under the fireworks is to be believed. As you’ve surely deduced by now, things aren’t always what they seem on this island.
