Well, last week Alicia (Julianna Margulies) and Peter (Chris Noth) survived the family party and the clash of their respective mothers, and the unexpected unveiling of the secret that Alicia had demanded a divorce. And now Peter heads to court – not to get divorced, but, in the show’s penultimate episode, to defend himself, once again, against charges of ethics violations and criminal wrongdoing.

SEASON PREMIERE: This show is one of the more underrated shows on TV, especially in the horror genre. The new season begins with our heroic group of monster fighters spread far and wide, and under attack not only on various continents, but within themselves. Eva Green stars – and Patti LuPone returns, this season as a regular.
