Revenge (ABC) Return: How long has this been off? Since February? Jesus. Revenge is making up for lost time with a drama-amped episode full of backstabbing, face-slapping, mattress-smacking, and Emily VanCamp and Madeline Stowe OVERACTING! THEIR! ASSES! OFF! Best primetime soap opera in years—don’t even bother with the Dallas remake, TNT.
Law & Order: Special Victims Unit (NBC) Chloe Sevigny Alert: In her first TV role since the demise of Big Love, Chloe Sevigny guests as a woman who’s attacked and abducted from her home as her husband looks on helplessly via Skype—but is she really a victim, or the villain? Even if Ice-T doesn’t know the answer to that, the rest of us do. There’s also a few Sevigny-in-lingerie scenes … you’ve been warned.
