Liam will NOT be the gay character revealed on season three of 90210. This much is known.
So, where will that leave the rough-edged ladies' man, whose relationship with Naomi rarely got fully on track last season and who has a clear connection with Annie? Asked about his future with the latter, Matt Lanter teased to TV Guide this week:
"We'll get romantic in the first couple of episodes. We share a kiss."
As exciting as that sounds for Liam/Annie supporters, be warned: the pair won't exactly embark on a happy relationship.
"It gets complicated very fast. There will be a love triangle involving Liam, Annie and Liam's half-brother Charlie (guest star Evan Ross)," Lanter said.The actor went more in depth regarding this new character, adding:
"Charlie and Liam are estranged. His half-brother hasn't been in his life so they don't have a good relationship. Throw a girl into the mix and it's that much worse."
Why might Annie find a spark with Charlie? Lanter says he's older, more educated and, perhaps most importantly, loves theater.
"Annie's into that," said Lanter. "They have that connection. They can read plays and Shakespeare together, and that's something Liam doesn't have - something more worldly, cultured."
90210 moves to Mondays and premieres its third season on September 13. Check out photos from the season premiere NOW.
