|At the end of last season, the lives of more
than a dozen characters hung in the balance, with Jake in a midair
fall; Matt wrongfully imprisoned for murder; and Kimberly poised to
blow up the remaining resident; of L.A.'s coolest address.
The fourth-season opener should reveal their fates ... and then some. With set-side secrecy at a maximum, the only things we can guarantee are that Anne-Marie Johnson signs on as Matt's lawyer and James Handy, who's played tough guys on NYPD Blue and Beverly Hills 90210, changes pace to return as the accused killer's father.
