"Copper," BBC America's Civil War-era detective drama, concluded its marvelous first season Sunday (Oct. 21) with a poignant and robust finale. "A Vast and Fiendish Plot" provided just enough answers to satisfy viewers -- while raising plenty of new questions to tantalize us until it returns for Season 2.

Or maybe she just doesn't want to jeopardize her luxurious lifestyle -- Mrs. Haverford, after all, equates poverty with "tragedy." And now we are really concerned about her relationship with John Wilkes Booth -- will she be part of the plot to assassinate Lincoln?

2. Robert Morehouse (Kyle Schmid) is a hero. »
