Good news! Our very first look at the second half of Season Two of Faking It is here! So is the premiere date — gird your loins for August 31st, ladies.
Although August 31st seems so far away that it might as well be Season Four of Orange is the New Black, it’s never too early to have feelings and make judgements about what’s in store for our favorite fake lesbian couple.
For example: I wish the scene with Amy going to a dance with a boy in a suit happened like three years ago instead of this season, because it’d be much more entertaining as a flashback! I’ve been writing about queer television long enough to say with authority that I will smash gravel into my eyeballs if Amy questioning whether or not she can truly withstand the irresistibly patriarchal pull of man-meat and devote herself fully to loving girls (such as her girlfriend!) lasts for more than the first two episodes. (For more of my thoughts on this topic, check out this recap.) Luckily, the preview does seem to be suggesting that this will be a brief deviation which’ll get “all cleared up” pretty quickly, and Amy will then devote herself to deciding who she wants to have lesbian sex with more, Karma or Regan! I’m obviously on Team Regan, but I cannot resist the siren song of a storyline about a straight best friend maybe falling for her lezzer bestie. Can’t wait to get the answer to these questions and many more (like why is Shane naked and why are Shane and Karma kissing?) in four months!
