So it looks like the season finale is going to be the original season premiere.
For those that don't know, there was a cut cliffhanger
from the first season finale that featured Lucy's return. It was cut before the episode originally aired, but was included in the extended cut of the finale on the DVD.
Back in September 2011, Greg Garcia discussed the season premiere that would have been
had the cliffhanger not been cut:
The idea was going to be at the beginning of the season I was going to do an episode which basically said that she survived the execution, they’ve been hiding her and now she wants the baby back, but at the end of the first episode this year I was going to kill her again.
The only reason we didn’t do it was that we were kind of thinking that over the summer we’d get some new viewers and then to do the whole thing in the first episode where we introduce this woman only to kill her again it was like maybe that’s a bad idea, maybe we should do a bread and butter episode of what this show is really like. So as much as I kind of dug the idea, we decided not to do it.
I remember reading in another interview (that I cannot find now) is that the reason she was no longer in prison was that she had technically served her sentence for her crime (even though it didn't kill her), so she couldn't be re-sentenced for it. She was then to kill again in the premiere which would've resulted in her second, and final, electrocution.
I wonder if the story will play out as it was originally planned to, or if they're going to keep Lucy around in a recurring role next season, which could be interesting...
Because I had seen the extended episode previously and had read this interview last year, I had a feeling that tonight's episode was leading up to Lucy still being alive when Virginia started saying that she knows how the story ends. Otherwise the reveal would've been just as awesome as the cut cliffhanger. :(
