9 pm Alcatraz (Fox) | Time slot premiere: The team races against time to catch reappeared Alcatraz inmate Kit Nelson, a terrifying child abductor who always returns his victims home – after he’s killed them.

9 pm Hart of Dixie (The CW) | When Zoe discovers that she is a legacy to the Bluebell Belles, Lemon makes it her mission in life to shut her out by putting her through a humiliating initiation; Lavon, with Wade’s help, jumps back into the dating scene; George plots to stop a huge chainstore from building near Bluebell.

9 pm The Lying Game (ABC Family) | On the night of the country club’s Black and White Ball, jealousy and lies start to take their toll on Emma and Ethan; Laurel and Ted reel after they discover the motive behind Justin’s actions; Rebecca and Mads counsel each other on matters of the heart.

10 pm Castle (ABC) | When a famous dog trainer is killed, the investigation keeps coming back to charismatic reality-TV star and tabloid darling Kay Cappuccio (played by Hilarie Burton, White Collar). Smallville‘s Justin Hartley also guest-stars, as Kay’s boyfriend.

10 pm Lost Girl (Syfy) | In “Where There’s a Will, There’s a Fae,” Bo’s involvement in the Fae world deepens as she helps out a Will-o-the-Wisp in need. So, the pun-tastic episode title works on multiple levels; I give it an 8.5.
