Lucy is alive! Kind of.
Though the third outing of Alcatraz didn't provide an answer as to whether Dr. Lucy Banerjee (Parminder Nagra) woke up from the coma she slipped into following the sniper shooting, we did get a glimpse into her 1960s past on the island. 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.

From the purveyor of mystery series that keep audiences scratching their heads — Alias and Rambaldi, Lost and the island, Felicity and her hair — J.J. Abrams has debuted another mystifying series, Alcatraz.
The new show focuses on the notorious San Francisco prison. It's 1963, and more than 300 guards and prisoners vanish into thin air. In each episode, one of these hardened criminals, called "the '63s," will reappear in 2012 without having aged. San Francisco cop Rebecca Madsen (Sarah Jones), Diego Soto (Lost alum Jorge Garcia) — an academic who's an expert on The Rock — federal Agent Emerson Hauser (Sam Neill) and his mysterious associate Lucy Banerjee (Parminder Nagra) team up to find them before they can enact their anachronistic justice.
