Lie to Me Finale: End of the Line for Lightman and Reynolds


The second-season finale of Lie to Me doesn't play as your typical cliffhanger, but it does bring about some big changes for the show. Chief among them: The departure of Mekhi Phifer's FBI agent Ben Reynolds from the series.


Executive producers and Season 3 showrunners Alex Cary and David Graziano made the decision to broaden their stories and character development.
