Big Love Finale

Last night's "Big Love" finale goes down as one of the better series enders in recent memory. But lost in the hoopla about the surprise ending is the simple fact that we totally should have seen spoiler alert! Bill Henrickson's murder coming.

The reason? His mother was played by Grace Zabriskie.

Zabriskie, of course, came to cultish TV prominence on "Twin Peaks" as Sarah Palmer, the twitchy mom of Laura, the high school student whose mysterious killing sets the entire series in motion. That's murdered TV child No. 1.

Later in the 1990s, she turned up in a handful of "Seinfeld" episodes as Mrs. Ross, the visibly smoldering mother of George Constanza's fianceé, Susan. Her daughter's twisted fate on that landmark sitcom? Death by wedding invitation an improbable result of licking envelope glue that Costanza fully knew to be ancient and potentially harmful. Murdered virtual kid No. 2.
