The Lizzie Borden Chronicles Season 1 Episode 2 “Patron of the Arts” airs on Saturday April 12th at 10pm on Lifetime. In tonight’s episode, Lizzie (Christina Ricci) and sister Emma (Clea DuVall) break out of their Victorian comfort zone at a debauched bohemian party in New York City. En route home, Lizzie saves a street prostitute (Kimberly-Sue Murray) from a vicious beating, then gives the scared young woman refuge in her own house. But her charity incurs the wrath of notorious local gangster, Mr. Flowers (Jonathan Banks). A surprise visit by a dashing New York playwright (Frank Chiesurin) is an amusing distraction as he plies his charm to convince Lizzie to finance his latest work. Pinkerton agent Siringo (Cole Hauser) turns up fresh evidence that further incriminates Lizzie, while a sordid encounter between the hooker and the writer leads Lizzie to mediate the problem in her unique way.

Show Summary: The Lizzie Borden Chronicles delivers an intense and fictionalized account of actual events and people surrounding Lizzie’s life after her controversial acquittal of the horrific double murder of her father and stepmother in 1892, when the exonerated figure lives a life awash in newfound celebrity. But when numerous people close to Lizzie – ranging from her half-brother to Broadway luminaries and the head of the criminal underworld — start to mysteriously die under brutal and strange circumstances, legendary Pinkerton detective Charlie Siringo (Cole Hauser, Good Will Hunting) becomes determined to prove her involvement in their ultimate demise. Emmy nominee John Heard (The Sopranos) will portray William Almy, the business partner of Lizzie’s murdered father Andrew, while Lizzie’s half-brother William will be played by Andrew Howard (Hatfields & McCoys).
