courtney thorne smith gi 'Two and a Half Men': Courtney Thorne Smith returns as LyndseyAfter a ten-episode arc as Alan’s (Jon Cryer) love interest, “Ally McBeal’s” Courtney Thorne-Smith is returning to “Two and a Half Men” once again. EW reports that Thorne-Smith will be reprising her role as Lyndsey McElroy in the Sheen-free Season 9, in a recurring capacity.

Though details of her character’s return are under wraps, as is to be expected with this highly anticipated season, we can be sure to see some hijinks — after all, the last time we saw Lyndsey, in a January episode, Alan accused her of having a secret relationship with Charlie.

We can’t wait to see how she reacts to Charlie’s untimely death… and to his replacement, Walden (Ashton Kutcher).
