We’ll admit it: we can’t wait for the Sept. 14 premiere of The CW’s “Life Unexpected.” In 2006, “Everwood” left a hole in our hearts, and the family-centric “LUX” is just the remedy. We’ve gotten our hands on some photos from the first few episodes of Season 2, and we can’t help but speculate.
Of course, Arielle Kebbel is taking a trip to Portland, and now that we’ve seen the first shots of her as Baze’s new bartender, Paige, we’re thinking that sparks are bound to fly. She’s definitely not Dean’s mousy wife from “Gilmore Girls” anymore! Maybe she’s just what Baze (Kristoffer Polaha) needs to take his mind off of Cate (Shiri Appleby)?
She’s not the only new girl in town. Who’s the feisty red-head played by Amy Price-Francis? Her name is Kelly, and she’s already making us nervous. In these shots, Ryan (Kerr Smith) is reading her book, which is titled “You CAN’T Have it All.” Uh, thanks for the words of encouragement.
Episode 2 is titled “Parents Unemployed.” Hmm. With Paige manning the bar, is Baze left with some free time on his hands? He’s spending some time shooting hoops with Lux (Britt Robertson). It’s good to see that he recovered from whatever lands him in the hospital in the premiere.
In Episode 3, “Criminal Incriminated,” Lux is experiencing every high school girl’s worst nightmare: both mom and dad hanging out at school. From the looks on their faces, we’re guessing this is one parent-teacher conference we wouldn’t want to sit in on.
Let’s hear it, Zappers: What do you hope happens in Season 2 of “Life Unexpected”? (Other than through-the-roof ratings and a full season pick up, of course.)
