Now the show's characters will be forced to move on, and we see that first hand with new photos of Tom's wife, Elizabeth Keen (Megan Boone).
In a batch of photos from the midseason premiere, entitled "Ruin," Liz is shown grieving her husband's death. She's seen despondent at home, mourning at his grave and in tears while talking to Tom's mother, Susan “Scottie” Hargrave (Famke Janssen).
There's also an intriguing night time scene with Liz in the wilderness and armed with a flare gun that will surely be suspenseful.
The episode is said to focus solely on Liz's grief, in what will be a departure from the show's typical format.
