It's been nearly a year since The Lying Game Season 1 finale, so we don't blame you if you forgot what exactly was going on with Sutton, Emma, Ethan and Co. when you last saw them. Here's a refresher course of where each character left off (prepare to be confused) and a little scoop about where they're headed when the ABC Family series returns on Tuesday, Jan. 8 at 9/8c.
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."

ABC Family's The Lying Game may be based on the book of the same name, but the similarities pretty much end there.
"People who have loved the book will still get the tone in the series, but it takes on a life of its own," executive producer Charles Pratt, Jr. (Melrose Place) tells TVGuide.com. "Everybody you see on this show is somehow tied into the mystery, which is probably our biggest departure."
Former Heroes star Adrian Pasdar has been cast on ABC Family's new series The Lying Game, TVGuide.com has learned exclusively.
The Lying Game — based on the books by Sara Shepard, who also authored Pretty Little Liars — introduces separated-at-birth twins Emma Becker and Sutton Mercer (both played by Alexandra Chando). It starts out like The Parent Trap: The sisters switch places so that Emma can experience the trappings of wealth while Sutton pursues the identity of their birth mother. But it gets much darker when Sutton doesn't show on the night the girls are supposed to reunite. Does Emma come clean or continue their deception?
