With so many crime dramas on TV, you'd think murder would be a universal language. But FX's The Bridge (Wednesday, 10/9c), an unusually timely and troubling mystery series set on the volatile border between Texas (sleepy El Paso) and Mexico (dangerous, corrupt Juarez), uses grisly symbolism to remind us that not all victims are created equal.

"They are frat boys who need discipline," Locklear says. "She'd really like to get rid of them."
