What will happen to your favorite L.A. Complex characters in the remaining half of the season? We don’t know for sure, but we can make a few guesses! Voila our predictions for Season 2, using the uber-sophisticated traffic light system. Here’s the key:
This happens and we switch back to Bachelor reruns.
This isn’t too farfetched… but surprise us, already!
This might run the show into the ground but we’d buy box sets for the whole family and watch it on repeat.
The King of California ended Season 1 by battering his boyfriend Tariq after they were caught kissing. Tariq signs an agreement never to discuss his relationship with the closeted rap star and books the first flight back to Toronto. Kal proceeds to give up his “king bling” necklace and alienate nearly everyone around him… except for his recently reunited ex-con father, Walter. We last saw Daddy Walter offering his son salvation in the form of a woman, Donna.
Despite a horrible audition, Abby lands a guest role on the hit Christian TV show Saying Grace. After breaking up with Nick because their relationship is moving too fast, Abby almost immediately moves in with co-stars Brandon and Laura, who invite her into a threesome. Abby and Brandon admit to each other that they have real feelings, but so does Laura… who wants Abby all to herself.
The Lux’s resident aspiring comic began Season 2 with a hot girlfriend a new job. Of course, nothing comes easily for Nick. He discovers that he must compete with Sabrina, his most recent fling, for the writer position. Sabrina terrorizes Nick for the viewing pleasure of others, and our favorite nerd can only win the upper hand by joining his boss on coke-lined adventures to the local brothel.
If we were writing the show? Nick would become a staff writer on Raquel’s upcoming Celebrity Halfway House, where he would finally meet a girl he could be on level ground with (and whose name might just be Katie???).
Desperately clinging to the coattails of a career, Raquel spent the majority of Season 1 using half the show’s characters for her own personal gain. Not that she ever gained too much. This season, Raquel has suffered an unwanted pregnancy, a bad breakup, a DUI, and a lawsuit from Cactibear II—the career-ending movie that fired her.
This Critical Unit star was last seen setting fire to his house. Connor begs Raquel to be his girlfriend, but quickly receives an offer from B-list celebrity Jennifer Bell to be her contracted beau in an effort to boost their careers. But this fake relationship becomes real after Raquel’s continued downward spiral leads her to some harsh words that convince Connor to pack his bags for good.
Beth & Simon
New characters Beth and Simon Pirelli made their debut as a brother and sister living out of their car after being abandoned by their father. Precocious Simon has dreams of the silver screen, but all Beth can see are dollar signs. Against Simon’s wishes, Beth continues using lies to ferret her brother through cracks in the industry machine. Though Beth already has admirers back at the Lux, she was last spotted having an affair with a married man.
