Faking It Season 2 Recap: Zen and the Art of Pageantry

In “Faking It” Season 2 Episode 8 “Zen and the Art of Pageantry,” we witnessed such beautiful moments in the lives of Amy, Karma and Lauren. However, there was a shocking ending that would change the game between Amy, Karma and Liam. Read on to learn more about this episode.

Amy’s mom has always been a sucker for pageants, and having Lauren as her stepdaughter, she’s so thrilled because Lauren is into that kind of thing. However, Amy decided to give it a try to please her mom, and she did pretty well. The two had an awesome conversation that patched things up between them. Amy’s mom admitted to her that she never thought that they could get any closer because of Amy’s disinterest in pageants and other stuff that her mom likes. However, she really appreciated what Amy did and was proud of her.


As for Lauren, her dad was so supportive of her throughout the pageant, but we know how hard it is to accept the fact that she’s an intersex. But even though that’s the case, he’s still there for his daughter and supported her all the way.

Meanwhile, Karma decided to finally come clean to her parents that she’s actually straight. Her parents are hippie, while her brother is a globe-trotter. She’s nervous to come clean because she thinks that she might disappoint them because she’s not different at all — unlike them. Just when she was about to do so, Zen arrived. Still, she pushed through with her plan and admitted to them that she’s really straight. Her parents didn’t take it against her and even admitted that Zen wasn’t actually traveling all over the world.

Karma was so happy with her family’s reaction, and she thanked Liam and told him that she inspired her because of his honesty. Liam was so guilty when he heard this that he told Karma that he slept with someone while they were broken up. Karma just shrugged it off and said that he can’t take that against him unless he slept with someone she knows or he slept with Amy. Liam’s reaction gave him away, and Karma was so furious at this revelation.

How will Karma handle this? Share your thoughts by posting your comments below!
