Lie To Me Series Finale

8:30pm – Tuesday, August 25 on TV 3

After an explosive season this week sees Lie To Me going out with a bang when the Lightman Group is asked to help identify those responsible for a terrorist bombing. Lie To Me concludes its first season on Tuesday, August 25th at 8:30pm on 3.

This week’s season finale titled “Sacrifice” will see both Jennifer Beals (The L Word) and Mekhi Phifer (ER), who have both already appeared on the series, joining Tim Roth’s Cal Lightman as his ex-wife and an FBI agent, respectively.

Roth had acted with Beals previously in the film Four Rooms and he says he really enjoyed working with her again.

“There was a very interesting banter back and forth between the two of us, based not just on what was written but really on our sense of humour. It was very refreshing. It was a fascinating time to join up with her again,” Roth tells Zap2It.

Asked whether there is a chance Beals’ Zoe Landau will become a recurring character, Roth reveals, “I would hope so. I think she’s fantastic. I think there’s room to really expand on that character and expand on their relationship.”

As well as the addition of Beals, this week’s finale sees the welcome return of Mekhi Phifer.

Phifer stars as an FBI agent who originally debuted on the series when his character, Agent Ben Reynolds, came to the Lightman Group asking for help in catching a serial rapist. Agent Reynolds now returns to Lie To Me to help with the terrorist case in the season finale.

Roth explains that having an FBI agent affiliated with the agency opens doors for the Lightman Group. “We don’t have to struggle to access tapes or access sources for a case,” he says.

But will this help the agency deal with this week’s terrorist bombing? Find out when both Jennifer Beals and Mekhi Phifer guest star in Lie To Me, concluding its first season on Tuesday, August 25th at 8:30pm on 3.
