Four fun facts about the “Faking It” mid-season finale

on

Somewhere in the middle of the Faking It midseason finale, I started counting how many times I said, “OH MY GOD.”  Then, somewhere near the end, I stopped counting because I said it like 50 times in a row.  Without giving away too much, here’s some clues about what to expect.

1.  All the conflicts of the season thus far come to a head in this episode. Theo’s secret comes out, which affects Lauren in touching and unexpected ways. Shane is forced to finally decide between his good and bad wolves. And most importantly, Amy forces Karma to choose whether their friendship has a shot in hell going forward.

2. In addition to being the most plot and feeling-heavy episode of the season, it also directly seeks to please its lesbian viewers. Watching it, I felt catered to, if not pandered to. And you know what? I could get used to that. There are not one, but two celesbian guest stars, one of whom is an old-school favorite and the other of whom won her way into our hearts recently. (I would tell you who they are but it is SO MUCH MORE FUN to torture you.) There is also an appearance by none other than Xander Harris (Nicholas Brendon), who has always been lesbian-adjacent.

3. Reagan says “eight minutes and 29 seconds.” Why? What is she referring to? The length of the song she wrote about Reamy? The amount of time before a bomb goes off? The combined time it takes both of them to orgasm? COULD BE ANYTHING.

4. Ever since the mid-season teaser trailer, we have speculated about who Karma is hovering over here.

Is it real life or fantasy? And if it is a fantasy, whose is it? Well, you’re about to find out.

The mid-season finale of Faking It airs Tuesday at 10:30/9:30 central time and my recap, which will feature lots of jokes at Xander Harris’ expense, will go up the next day.
