Hopefully Fox picks up Alcatraz for a second season because the two-hour season finale left viewers with plenty of new questions — and one possible major death.
In the season ender, Rebecca (Sarah Jones) finally came face-to-face with her grandfather, Tommy (David Hoflin), who is apparently one of the lieutenants on the side of the '63s faction who work for the Warden (Jonny Coyne). The other side is lead by Harlan (Steven Grayhm), and possibly Matt Craven's mysterious man (whom we'll call MM throughout the story since he has no name) behind the door. What are their ultimate goals? Still not completely clear, but we do have a new theory. Why were they divided? Somebody broke a promise.

Nothing gets my critical pulse racing more than when a show I already love switches around the formula, telling a story from a different angle or in a different style. That happened several times during November sweeps, which is why these are my three favorite episodes of the last month.
Without a Trace, "A Day in the Life" (Nov. 17): A brilliant hour from one of TV's most reliably excellent crime procedurals, this episode was told from the perspective not of our FBI heroes but of two parents (excellently played by Matt Craven and Laurie Metcalf) trapped in what to them seemed a nightmare but to the viewers seemed merely business as usual. When their teenage son fails to come home one night, they watch from the outside in confusion and growing despair as the missing-persons team collects evidence, constructs a time line a
