'Raising Hope' Season 2 finale: Let us never speak of this again

"Raising Hope" has built up enough goodwill over its two seasons that the occasional misstep can be forgiven. Like the one the show took with its two-part season finale, which concluded Tuesday (April 17).On one hand, you can respect the show going back to its early episodes and reminding us that the adorable Hope is the product of Jimmy's spectacularly unlucky one-night stand with a serial killer girl with a troubled past. And it's not hard to see references to "Seinfeld" and "The Simpsons," two of the greatest comedies of the past quarter-century, in the episode.But the references are to two of those shows' more reviled episodes: the "Seinfeld" series finale, with its parade of past guest stars testifying against the principal characters, and "The Principal and the Pauper," which introduced the people of Springfield to one Armin Tamzarian.

'Raising Hope': Nancy Grace Presides Over A Shocking Twist

While most shows save their big shocking moments for their season finales, " Raising Hope " (Tue., 9:30 p.m. ET on Fox) dropped a bombshell on their viewers in the penultimate episode. And they did so by creating a show within the show Nancy Grace hosts "Inside Probe," taking a look into the serial killer Lucy Carlisle AKA Hope's mom. Through several hilarious interviews and on-the-scene interviews, the full story is revealed, but Grace saves one nugget for the closing credits. Lucy wasn't executed after all. Hope's mother is alive, which throws absolutely everything in the show up in the air. You bet it's to be continued in next week's season finale. TV Line talked with Marth Plimpton who said she enjoyed Grace's walk through their world, interacting with the wacky denizens of their town. She also promised even more familiar faces from the season will be back for the finale, "which is really cool." The good news for fans is that "Raising Hope" has already been renewed for a third season, so no matter how this situation plays out next week, there's a whole new year to see if and how Lucy messes up the strange dynamic that's settled into the family these past two years since Hope was born. Check out the season finale of "Raising Hope," next Tuesday at 9:30 p.m. ET on Fox. TV Replay scours the vast television landscape to find the most interesting, amusing, and, on a good day, amazing moments, and delivers them right to your browser. http://feeds.huffingtonpost.com/~r/HP/Entertainment/~3/We4VycTOzXM/raising-hope-nancy-grace-shocking-twist-video_n_1417031.html
