Forbidden romance at a prison never looked so sweet.
In this week's episode of Alcatraz we learned that Hauser (Sam Neill) and Lucy (Parminder Nagra), known then as Lucille, did know each other prior to the great disappearance of 1963. Hauser previously worked for the SFPD prior to his time on the island, transporting prisoners to Alcatraz.
Hauser delivered the newest occupant to Alcatraz: Paxton Petty, a war vet tried for bombing the city. Lucille initially turned down Hauser's offer of a ride back to the mainland, but Paxton's case brought them together. She showed up at his station so he could ask her out to dinner, and that's where he likely made the promise to his new friend to find out where Paxton's fourth and final bomb was planted. Their past relationship is just one of the new mysteries that Alcatraz introduced this week. Let's take a look at the others:
Finally, an Alcatraz guard has returned!
In this week's episode of Alcatraz, prison guard Guy Hastings (True Blood's Jim Parrack) appeared in the present day with one mission: Hunt down Tommy Madsen (David Hoflin).

That's just one of the new mysteries that Alcatraz introduced this week. Let's take a look at the others:

Not only was she a psychologist, but she planned to reform the prisoners of Alcatraz with... memory-erasing experiments?! That's just one of the new mysteries that Alcatraz introduced this week. Let's take a look at the others:
Alcatraz's second outing didn't offer up as many new mysteries as the series premiere, but the few that were dished out were enough to whet our appetites for more.
Instead, the episode featured Hauser (Sam Neill), Rebecca (Sarah Jones) and Diego (Jorge Garcia) on the hunt for notorious child killer Kit Nelson (Fringe's Michael Eklund), who happens to be one of the missing '63s, a group of prisoners who mysterious disappeared from Alcatraz island in 1963.
Parminder Nagra's reaction to Alcatraz premiere: "Already? You're killing me off?"
Kit's eventual capture did bring up a few new questions, though. Let's take a look at the new mysteries Alcatraz introduced this week:
Despite being shot by a sniper in the two-hour series premiere of Alcatraz, Dr. Lucy Banerjee will not mysteriously disappear from J.J. Abrams' new Fox drama — which is, of course, a relief to her portrayer, Parminder Nagra.
"When I was told that was happening, I was like...
