ABC, Sundays Starting September 30th at 9 p.m.

The first season ended with a crash-and-burn, as Madeline Stowe's bitch goddess Victoria Grayson apparently met her doom in a plane wreck. Or diiid she? (Have you never seen a prime-time soap before? Do arch-villainesses ever die offscreen?) Extremely welcome development for the second season: Emily VanCamp's Emily Thorne finds her long-lost mother, played by none other than Jennifer Jason Leigh. It's inspired casting, as Leigh is sure to bring a touch of that Single White Female mojo.
