'Lie to Me' Finale: Lightman Has the 'Sex Talk' With His DaughterWell, we all have our little blind spots. And usually, these blind spots relate to our friends or loved ones. Dr. Cal Lightman (Tim Roth) is an expert at uncovering the truth and decoding the body language of others. But it turns out that he's not so good at this when it comes to his own daughter.

On the season finale of 'Lie to Me' (Mon., 9PM ET on Fox), Lightman arrives home to find his teenager daughter Emily (Hayley McFarland) messing around with a boy upstairs. Cal is outraged, and forces the young man (played by Carter Jenkins) to leave. Emily is pretty upset herself, and says this to her father: "It's just sex, dad!" Which really doesn't improve the situation.

Ria and Eli Get Awkwardly Romantic on 'Lie to Me'Office romances! They're always a bad idea. But thank God, no office-related fooling around takes place on 'Lie to Me' (Mon., 9PM ET on Fox). What a relief.

[Spoiler alert.]

Thus far, Ria (Monica Raymund) and Eli (Brendan Hines) have wisely refrained from engaging in a workplace romance. This shows considerable restraint on their part: especially since Eli has been flirting with Ria since their first meeting, some three seasons ago. On tonight's episode, the pair still avoid fooling around in the office ... they just wait until they're drunk in a bar after work. And then they start passionately -- and randomly -- making out. See, that totally solves the problem. No worries!

Turning Kidnappers Against Each Other on 'Lie to Me'Dr. Cal Lightman (Tim Roth) is a genius-level psychologist, and an expert at uncovering the lies of others. But this doesn't mean that he's not willing to tell a few lies himself -- when necessary. On the new 'Lie to Me' (Mon., 9PM ET on Fox), Cal tells a fib. He has a good reason for doing it, though. He does it in order to save another man's life.

[Spoiler alert.]

DEA agent Dave Burns (Max Martini) is kidnapped by drug dealers. The head kidnapper suspects that Dave caused the death of his father. To make matters more interesting, Dave is also the boyfriend of Dr. Gillian Foster (Kelli Williams) -- the woman that Cal Lightman is pretty much in love with. Obviously, Cal is still going to try to save David; but it makes it a little more poignant that he's risking his life for the man who is sleeping with his secret crush.

'Lie to Me' - Dr. Lightman's Daughter Is in DangerWhat's the worst thing that you can threaten another person with? Probably it's when you threaten the life of their child. And that's what happens on 'Lie to Me' (Mon., 9PM ET on Fox).

[Spoiler alert.]

Dr. Cal Lightman (Tim Roth) is dealing with the aftermath of a case from the past. Lightman sent a killer to his death for murdering an 8-year-old child. But now, it seems as though the same killer is still on the loose -- which would mean that Cal captured the wrong guy. Did Cal unwittingly prosecute an innocent man?

To make matters worse, it looks like the child-murderer is after Cal's daughter Emily (played by Hayley McFarland). At this point, Dr. Lightman gets a terrifying call over the phone: " ... Do you know where you daughter is?" It might be the worst message that a father could receive.

The Boss's Daughter on 'Lie to Me'Teen romances are always a little tricky. But they're especially tricky when one of the parties involved isn't actually a teenager. And it's even worse when one of the parties in question is -- well -- the boss's daughter.

And that's the situation on 'Lie to Me' (Mon., 8PM ET on Fox). Emily Lightman (Hayley McFarland) has something of a crush on Eli Loker (Brendan Hines). Unfortunately, Eli is an adult, and Emily is a teenager.

To make matters worse, Emily suddenly kisses Eli while they're having a conversation about a concert. And to make matters even worse, Eli's boss is Dr. Cal Lightman (Tim Roth), an expert in lies and deceit. When Cal finds out that Eli has kissed his daughter -- Cal punches him. And he punches him right in the stomach (or the groin; it's a little hard to tell). Ouch! Don't mess with the boss's daughter!

After the injury, the cop is completely paralyzed -- and can only communicate by blinking his eyes. Lightman interprets the dying man's reactions to his questions -- and manages to solve the crime.

Lie To Me, Tim Roth'Lie to Me' returns with the second half of season 2on June 7, 8PM ET on Fox. Is the truth really written all over our faces, as the show's tagline suggests? Yeah, it really is, especially if you're Cal Lightman eagle-eyeing some poor soul for pursed lips or nervous twitches. Oh, to be on the receiving end of that piercing stare.

I recently spoke with Tim Roth, who stars as Lightman, and learned that "the stare" actually originated from an interesting connection in his earlier years. Read on to find out more and learn what Roth had to say about my son's impression of Lightman.

Review: Lie to Me - Tractor Man

Lightman (Tim Roth, L) and Agent Reynolds (Mekhi Phifer, R) take charge when a disgruntled farmer tries to attack Washington, D.C. in the LIE TO ME episode 'Tractor Man.'
(S02E10) "...everybody does it because it feels all right, and it's more polite, but a lie's still a lie even when it's white..." - Loker

With the fall TV season slowly winding down, it was a pleasant surprise when Fox announced that Lie To Me's fall finale would air practically halfway into December. Now that the episode has come and gone and the TV schedules are becoming more and more barren over the coming weeks, I'm already wishing that Fox would just make up their minds and figure out when the final twelve episodes of the season will start airing. While "Tractor Man" wasn't Cal and the gang's strongest outing, it was still a solid reminder why Lie To Me has become so much more than just another crime procedural.

It looks like 'Fringe' isn't the only Fox series dealing with an alternate reality this season.

According to Variety, the network's detective drama 'Lie to Me' will feature almost the entire cast of 'The Shield' in an upcoming episode. While 'Shield' lead Michael Chiklis is not involved, no fewer than seven other regulars from the critically acclaimed FX series, which ended last November after seven seasons, will guest star in the episode.
