What’s On This Week
SUNDAY, SEPT. 30
9 P.M. | ABC
Last season ended with a terrific cliffhanger—or rope-dangler. Edie (Nicollette Sheridan) hanged herself after being rejected by Carlos (Ricardo Antonio Chavira). Did she live? The first episode of season 4 answers that question and introduces Dana Delany. She’s Katherine Mayfair, a former neighbor who returns to Wisteria Lane full of memories and, strangely, accompanied by a daughter who remembers nothing and isn’t allowed in the attic: the usual enjoyable hint of awful Gothic doings.

9 P.M. | SHOWTIME
Serial killer Dexter Morgan’s new crisis is due to the fact, shall we say, that he’s a man of many parts—buried parts. Keith Carradine turns up, dry as a bone, as an FBI investigator. Not to be missed.
