In one of the most powerful scenes on A&E’s new drama “The Returned,” a woman named Helen Goddard (played by the incomparable Michelle Forbes, “The Killing”) comes back from the dead and seeks out a man of the cloth for answers. When Pastor Leon (Carl Lumbly, “Alias”) says he believes in everlasting life and references the Biblical story of Lazarus to support his argument, Helen’s disillusionment grows. “The finality is for a reason, Pastor, don’t you think?” Helen asks. “To just go on and on, that would be excruciating.
