Oh, hell no! The General Hospital relish wars will escalate next month when Tracy Quartermaine — the witch-on-wheels played by Jane Elliot — learns that her nephew and arch-rival, A.J. Quartermaine (Sean Kanan), has been booked on The Chew to show off his Pickle-Lila recipe.
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.
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."

Ted King and Jay Pickett, General Hospital
Due to Ted King's emergency throat surgery this month, General Hospital was forced to temporarily recast the role of Mafia boss Lorenzo Alcazar. King's last airdate is March 22. Port Charles star Jay Pickett — who played paramedic-turned-vampire Frank Scanlon — then steps into Lorenzo's Gucci loafers for three episodes on March 23, 24 and 27. GH viewers can expect King to reprise his role (with a noticeably raspy voice) on March 28.
It's not uncustomary for GH to recast a front-burner hunk on medical leave. Last year Chris Beetem (ex-Jordan, As the World Turns) played Nikolas while Tyler Christopher recovered from a broken arm. For the talented Pickett, this temp job was a golden opportunity.

Life is looking good for General Hospital's Tyler Christopher, who plays brooding prince Nikolas Cassadine. Per his official website, the Daytime Emmy nominee has landed a role in Secrets of a Small Town, an ABC drama pilot created by GH co-head writer Charles Pratt Jr. Guess it helps to have friends in high places! Pratt's modern-day Peyton Place is a mystery yarn about a sleepy-seeming hamlet that's rocked by a cheerleader's murder. But before fans freak out — "Is Tyler leaving us?!" — let's wait and see if Secrets actually gets ABC's greenlight after the pilot is made. C'mon now, breathe.
On the personal front, the word is that Tyler recently resumed dating GH costar Natalia Livingston (Emily
