In the next episode of the second season of MTV’s “Faking It,” Karma (Katie Stevens) and Amy (Rita Volk) find themselves once again pretending to be a couple to attend a fundraiser set by Karma’s mother.
The official synopsis of the episode is “Karma and Amy attend Karma’s mom’s fundraiser while pretending to be a couple, but will Shane and Liam spill their secret?”
CarterMatt reports that the two women are faking it once again as Karma needs to please her mother who is a strong supporter of LGBT rights. Unlike before, however, Amy and Karma discuss more rules in order to convince people of their relationship better.
So, what could be the logic behind Karma’s decision to involve her friend into another ruse? CarterMatt in the same report writes, “Maybe Karma wants those feelings to come back subconsciously. We know what we saw that at the end of season 2A, and for the most part, this has not been picked up as a major story thread just yet in the second half of the season. Hopefully, it will be in due time.”
In the last GLAAD Media Awards, After Ellen interview Rita Volk and executive producer Carter Covington talked about the fate of Karma and Amy’s relationship, which has been dubbed by fans as Karmy or Army. Volk said, “That’s gonna start on a rough patch. When we left the last season, Karma was like, ‘I’m over it, and everything is OK’…and Amy doesn’t quite believe her.”
Covington added, “We’re gonna see their relationship deepen, but also get challenged. It’s gonna be, for Amy, an intense, volatile, emotional ride.”
“Faking It” stars Katie Stevens, Rita Volk, Gregg Sulkin, Bailey De Young, and Michael Willett. Created by Julia Wolov and Dana Min Goodman and produced by Carter Covington, the second season of the single-camera romantic comedy has a total of 20 episodes.
Episode 16 entitled “Faking It… Again” will be on October 5, at 9:30/8:30c on MTV.
