Enlightened Season 2: Spoilers for January Episodes

enlightened-hboLast season on Enlightened, Amy Jellicoe was screaming into the wind. As loud and as passionate as she may have been regarding changing the environment at Abaddonn, it seemed like those around her either couldn’t hear cries for justice or didn’t want to indulge her. However, going into the second season, Amy has increased motivation to bring down the company she held so dear for so long and along with Tyler and a kind reporter willing to listen, she just might be able to do so.

Listed below are the dates, times, episode titles, episode descriptions, and replay information for the first three episodes of the second season of Enlightened.

SUNDAY, JAN. 13 (9:30-10:00 p.m. ET/PT) – “The Key”
Looking for “the key” to ruin Abaddonn and “free” its employees, Amy (Laura Dern) orchestrates a meeting with Jeff Flender (Dermot Mulroney), a charming whistle-blowing journalist, sharing incriminating e-mails she printed out at work with Tyler’s (Mike White) IT password. Though he doesn’t find a story in the e-mails, Jeff encourages Amy to dig deeper and find more explosive evidence that could help bring down the company.

When several top execs can’t log onto their accounts, Abaddonn’s breach of security is exposed, leaving Tyler scrambling to find a solution that won’t lead investigators to him or Amy.

To cope, Levi escapes with a pair of fellow malcontents, Travis (Christopher Abbott) and Danielle (Ashley Hinshaw), for a night of drugs, alcohol and debauchery at a nearby hotel.
