Episode Synopsis: Betrayal Episode 13 “…A better place.”- In the aftermath of Sara’s shooting, the two families are forced to confront decisions they’ve made, as well as look to the future, on the explosive season finale of “Betrayal,” SUNDAY, JANUARY 19 (10:01-11:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network.

Show Summary: A chance meeting between Sara (Hannah Ware), a professional photographer, and Jack (Stuart Townsend), a top attorney, leads to an instant and undeniable attraction. Sara’s husband, Drew (Chris Johnson), is a successful prosecutor with political aspirations, and the couple have a seven-year-old, Oliver. Unbeknownst to Sara, Jack is in-house counsel to a powerful but somewhat shady entrepreneur, Thatcher (James Cromwell), and is married to Thatcher’s daughter, Elaine (Wendy Moniz). Elaine, secure in her relationship with Jack, is a smart, determined woman attempting to make her Chicago café a success on her own terms, as well as be a good mother to the couples’ 16-year-old twins, Valerie (Elizabeth McLaughlin) and Victor (Braeden Lemasters). However Sara and Jack both realize something is missing in their marriages, and fight against the realization that they’ve met their soul mates in one another.

As Sara and Jack struggle with their feelings and their guilt about their families, Thatcher’s brother-in-law, Lou, is murdered, and all evidence points to Thatcher’s mentally challenged son, T.J. (Henry Thomas). Sara discovers she’s in the middle of a nightmare when she learns that Drew will be the prosecuting attorney in this high-profile murder case, which can secure his political future, and that Jack will be the lawyer for the defense. The lovers find themselves in an impossible situation – on opposite sides of a murder investigation.

“Betrayal” stars Hannah Ware (“Shame,” “Boss”) as Sara, Henry Thomas (“E.T.,” “Gangs of New York”) as T.J., Chris Johnson (“The Vampire Diaries”) as Drew, Wendy Moniz (“Guiding Light,” “The Guardian”) as Elaine, Elizabeth McLaughlin (“The Clique”) as Valerie, Braeden Lemasters (“Men of a Certain Age”) as Victor, with Stuart Townsend (“The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen”) as Jack and James Cromwell (“Babe,” “American Horror Story”) as Thatcher.

“Betrayal,” based on the hit Dutch series “Overspel,” was written by David Zabel (“ER,” “Detroit 1-8-7″) and directed by Patty Jenkins (“The Killing,” “Monster”), and is executive-produced by Zabel, Lisa Zwerling (“ER,” “FlashForward”), Alon Aranya (“Red Widow”) and Rob Golenberg (“Red Widow”). “Betrayal” is produced by ABC Studios.

    It’s Thatcher’s, so far As the show keeps going on I guess it’s gonna be gone no matter what we say. :( It seems like I have no luck with TV shows all I watch are getting cancelled.

  • Ashley

    Yes, please. I beg to please let it return!!!!! I am so heart broken and will be lost without it. PLEASE!!!

  • lmk

    Wtf? worst ending of a show ever! Why would Jack walk away from Sara at the end? It’s obvious she loves you, you idiot and you love her..even tho you’ve never said it! I choose to believe it’s Jack she’s meeting at the end but since the morons at abc will cancel the show we’ll never get to find out. Please let there be a season 2!

    • Tina

      Yes, I agree (Imk)… Please let it be Jack, but I think he walked away, cause of Oliver he’s little…idk, but I do think they are in love! For sure, come on Abc…do the right thing & bring it back, it’s a relaxing watch, all good!

  • lmk

    Yeah, I get that her son is young and I’m sure Jack feels responsible for Vic shooting her but the way he blew her off was awful. I felt as much pain and bewilderment as she did as he walked away.
    Obviously a great show when you get so caught up in the characters and the story. C’mon abc…Please bring it back!!!!!!

    • Jacqueline

      I love this show!!! Please don’t cancel . I really Believe SARa should be with her husband and son. She almost died because of jacks son, sometimes you Just got to walk away.

  • nadia

  • AnitaC24

    I’m with everyone, I want more. But, I think, the viewers were the ones betrayed by ABC!

  • Smiller

    I am sad that Betrayal ended. I thought it was a good show. Better than some of the other garbage that’s been on! I hope for Season 2!

  • Frankman

    I don’t care who it was in the end. Both are cheaters and cheaters deserve to lose in the end. And destined to be alone. I believe the show has nothing more to say.

  • Nem

    Yup great show, but again anything half decent requiring a bit of thought, and it’s cancelled

    • florence

      please dont cancell, love this show, hope it is jack at
      the end, dont think so, I think she is so hurt over jack, that she turns to some one else PLEASE PLEASE BRING IT BACK. flo

      • Linda

        Hope it’s Jack too, such a sad meting between them at the end.
        Where and how to go about petitioning for betrayal to return?
        Surely it won’t make any difference if ratings are low, abc will pull the plug on it! Love the show, it’s really good unlike Revenge… To much drama and unrealistic characters.

  • Zee

    There needs to be a 2nd season. Can’t leave us hanging … One of the very best shows on TV…. Cast is fabulous. Looked forward every week to watch this.

  • Jen

    LOVE this show and was so shocked that ABC was cancelling it. Please reconsider ABC. I have heard so many people raving about this this. Give it a Season 2 before making a rash decisions!

  • crystal yates

    I love this show please don’t cancel!

  • chris

    What else is there to do or tell… Thatcher is dead…there goes the whole show

  • Texasjenny

    It’s the journalist guy! C’mon!

  • JRG

    I am truly amazed that this show hasn’t done a lot better in the ratings! The quality of acting is superb. The script is outstanding and editing very good. I believe that the cast is one of the best that I’ve seen in a long time. I did like the story line because it was so romantic and touching. At first, I was not too interested in the actors that played Jack and Sara, but as the story continued, I thought they were excellent for the parts. Too bad that ABC is cancelling the show. Some other network should pick it up because it is quality programming and there isn’t too much of that on TV nowadays.

  • julia

    Love the show!! Will miss it on Sunday nights!!!!

  • ROSE

    I AGREE HOW CAN WE DO THAT TO PETITION TO HAVE MORE SHOW, LOVE THE SHOW AND ALL CAST.

  • Jennifer

    Really wish ABC would reconsider cancelling the show. I hated how they made it end and now no one will know who she met. Some may disagree but I really believe she should end up with Jack. It seemed like writers had them moreof a connection. It was a good show no matter what.

  • Judy

    let’s petition ABC! Anyone know how to get that started? I’m sure we can send emails to ABC and tweet the network. Any suggestions?

    • Jazzi

      Yes lets do it!!!!!

  • Tiff

    I know all too well, from past petitions, that ABC will not care what we viewers think or want. It’s all in their rating numbers and that’s it. If they scratched it, it’s not coming back, no matter how much we beg. I begged over 5 shows thus far and none came back. That aside, this was a great show. It dared you to look at your life and if you were living it the way you wanted to, or just going through the motions without any happiness. I was rooting for Jack at first. But by the end, I hoped it was Drew at that table. Because finally, Drew had looked at her with that same love in his eyes that she had been running to Jack for. What she had needed from Jack was finally there in Drew. And for me, that finalized everything.

  • Mary

    Please don’t cancel. This is a great show with great acting. It is one I look forward to al week and so do my friends. ABC think of a time or night change. This show is too good to be canceled.

  • Jazzi

    OMG they have to keep this show, please!!! They are tv series that have gone on for so many seasons like Revenge and Walking Dead and they are not as good as Betrayal is! I felt so many different emotions with this how, it was so good! But the last episode made me really mad -_- Like come on? If they really intended to cancel the ahow they should at least leave us with who she picked. WHICH HAS TO BE JACK!! What tHey have is too stormg, too romantic to just walk away from! Fan forever lol <3

  • Jasmine b.

    I looked forward to Sunday nights all because of this show. Now I feel like I have nothing to watch anymore. When I heard about it being canceled I was shocked because this is one of the only shows I’ve watched where I really get into the characters and their stories. Im really hoping that ABC will reconsider, and I also hope that was Drew at the table! I will really miss this show!!

  • Maureen

    Great show! Great cast! Looked forward to it every week. Good looking set of actors and full of suspense! Please……bring it back. Better than most shows out there…come on ABC……this is a class act show!

  • West Palm Beach

    The Songs of Chicago / Suzanne Dumond play at the end of episode 13. Who knows the real name of the singer ? I want to buy this music. Please let me know. Thank you.

  • kb

    I cannot believe this show is pulled! There was no closure – hate when ABC does that! This is the last time I watch a new series on that network.

  • no

    I feel so betrayed!

  • Carole

    This was a FANTASTIC season finale! Everyone can come to their own conclusion about whom Sara is meeting. My husband thinks its Drew and so do I but I really wish it were Jack. I think Jack let her go because of the guilt he felt for everything that happened. I would love for this show to return and Sara and Jack be brought back together again. This show has been my guilty pleasure!

  • dee

  • ~Parker~

    I totally agree. ABC people are stupid if they cancel this show. It is AWESOME!!! I would vote for a petition.

  • Nikki
