Can she count on her former nemesis Serena Joy (Yvonne Strahovski) for help?

Serena’s menacing husband, Commander Fred Waterford (Joseph Fiennes), returns alongside June’s on-off lover Nick (Max Minghella), and viewers will be eager to know if the formidable Aunt Lydia (Ann Dowd) has survived Emily’s brutal attack…

A fantastically visceral and emotional opener.
