Reeling from his family tragedy, Will (Tom Brittney) immerses himself in one of Geordie’s (Robson Green) cases, involving the murder of a young dandy at a dance hall. Tucked into the victim’s pocket is a library card from the school Geordie’s daughter Esme (Skye Lucia Degruttola) attends — and, far more disturbingly, a photo of Esme herself. The girl pleads ignorance, but Will senses that she’s hiding something important. Tessa Peake-Jones and Al Weaver also star.
A wish-granting comet — which evidently is a thing (who knew?) — makes its way to Middleton, adding to the excitement of graduation season, in the new episode “The Comet.” As her friends and neighbors reflect on what their fondest desire might be, Cassie (Catherine Bell) realizes she only wants what’s best for Sam (James Denton) when he gets a fantastic job offer after successfully pulling off a risky operation. Elsewhere, Grace (Bailee Madison) works on her valedictorian speech. Rhys Matthew Bond and Catherine Disher also star.
Dylan and Lizzie (Alan Cumming, Bojana Novakovic) have investigated some memorable cases together, but the new episode “After Hours” finds the sleuthing partners in an unsettling new milieu: the erotic underworld of New York City. It’s an environment that’s somewhat familiar to him from all his years of psychological studies, but she’s less comfortable as they investigate the murder of a high-powered PR rep. Elsewhere, Julian (Naveen Andrews) encounters a glamorous old flame. Drew Gehling, Molly Griggs and Reshma Shetty guest star.
Whether you regard it as a blistering family drama or a wicked black comedy, this completely addictive series about rich folk behaving badly returns for Season 2, after a first-season cliffhanger that saw ambitious but damaged Kendall Roy (Jeremy Strong) accidentally killing a waiter at his sister’s (Sarah Snook) wedding. That forces Kendall to abandon his attempt to lead a hostile takeover of his father’s (Brian Cox) global media empire as the new season opens. Kieran Culkin and Matthew Macfadyen also star.
