The Lying Game 's Alec Ryback is looking increasingly suspicious, but will his shady behavior cause his daughter Mads to turn against him?
"She doesn't trust her dad [but] she really does want her family to get along," Alice Greczyn , who plays Mads, tells TVGuide.com. "She's playing the ostrich role, burying her head in the sand [because] she doesn't have enough [yet!] proof to make waves otherwise."
When the ABC Family series left off, Sutton Mercer ( Alexandra Chando ) returned home from searching out her and twin Emma's birth mom but was soon attacked and then suddenly went missing. Who could be behind her disappearance? Well, Alec ( Adrian Pasdar ) is one of the few people aware that the twins even exist and also paid a lot of money to keep Sutton and Emma's real mother, Annie Hobbs , quiet. And to complicate matters further, another woman named Annie, also from Alec and Ted Mercer's past, returns on the very same night that Sutton went missing. Is there a connection? That remains to be seen.
" Charisma Carpenter 's character comes on as Annie but then it's quickly established that she now goes by Rebecca -- It's meant to be confusing." Greczyn says. "She becomes a love interest for Alec."
And while Alec gets closer to Rebecca, so does Mads, who goes to her for advice about her own new love interest. "When they introduce Ryan [ Misha Crosby ], she expresses to Rebecca that she's a little bit hesitant to fall in love again because she's still guarded from Eduardo," Greczyn says. "She eventually does take a risk because he's awfully charming." And luckily for Mads, this time around her stern district attorney father is somewhat open to the relationship. Greczyn adds, "There was a scene with me and Adrian that they cut, but where he's supportive of her dating Ryan. He comes off as such a villain, but I do think Alec loves Mads."
What secrets do you think Alec is hiding?
