With the return of Friday Night Lights less than three weeks away, various fan sites and news sources alike have been quick to post spoilers and speculation about what fans can expect to see in the sophomore season.
One interesting rumor involves the troubled Lyla Garrity (Minka Kelly) and her possible reconciliation with one of the other principal characters on the show - as well as her renewed interest in her Christian faith.
However, a lot remains up in the air. There's the spoiler we reported earlier (she could be doing a lot more than reconciling, we hear), and fans hoping for Lyla to get back together with Jason (Scott Porter) may end up disappointed.
There are, however, reports that Lyla Garrity and Tim Riggins (Taylor Kitsch) will repair their fractured friendship with the help of the church.According to the Chicago Tribune, the struggling Lyla Garrity will soon join an evangelical church and Tim, whose main interests are football and partying, will be attending at least one of the services with Lyla.
A source close to the show told the Tribune that while viewers will have to wait and see if Lyla and Tim become close again, it is certain that Lyla helps Tim "find God, at least for a moment in time."
During the summer press tour, Friday Night Lights producer Jason Katims explained the rationale behind Lyla Garrity's faith.
"She's been through so much. She's seeking answers. She just found this thing that makes a lot of sense to her and has given her some direction," Katims said. "She felt really lost and betrayed by her father and her family's been torn asunder, and all this stuff."
