Amy Jellicoe might finally be achieving her goal of bringing change to Abaddonn. Last season on Enlightened, the former corporate executive had all the intentions in the world and no one to help her put them into action, but with the help of ace reporter Jeff and Tyler, who has only recently come around to the idea of taking the Abaddonn brass down, change looks to be within grasp. Amy will finally get to be the hero that she already envisions herself in her head, but will her journey toward glory be cut short once someone finds out the real source of the security breach?
Listed below are the dates, times, episode titles, episode descriptions, and repeat airings for four upcoming episodes of Enlightened.
