Plot Synopsis

THE LIZZIE BORDEN CHRONICLES is an eight-episode limited series that delivers a fictionalized account of actual events and people surrounding Lizzie Borden'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 William to Broadway luminaries and the head of the criminal underworld -- start to mysteriously die under brutal and strange circumstances, legendary Pinkerton detective Charlie Siringo becomes determined to prove her involvement in their ultimate demise. Christina Ricci and Clea DuVall reprise their roles from the Lifetime Original Movie LIZZIE BORDEN TOOK AN AX, which premiered on Saturday, January 25, 2014, drawing an audience of 4.39 million people.
On Sunday, May 24, 2015 at 10pm ET/PT, Lifetime premiered the season finale of THE LIZZIE BORDEN CHRONICLES. In the season ender, "Capsize," Lizzie races to Boston, where Emma has taken refuge in the luxurious home of Adele Trotwood and family, with whom she has a very special connection. Stunned to find a vastly different Emma than the cherished sister she knew, Lizzie unwittingly leads Bat Masterson and Tom Horn directly into their path. However, the Trotwood family proves to be more than your average Boston Brahmins, posing an unexpected challenge to Bat and Tom. Trying to ease tensions, Emma makes an impetuous sacrifice. Lizzie plumbs the depths of her cunning to set out to ambush the gunslingers, and somehow pull the sister she dearly loves back from the abyss.
