Back From the Dead: The Most Shocking Resurrections From the 2011-2012 TV Season

Everyone loves a good twist, and there’s often no plot device more jolting than the revelation that a character who was thought to be dead is actually alive. Or at least sort of alive. Depending on the supernatural nature of the show, characters can return in ghost form — or as zombies or vampires. Amnesiacs-who-have-only-recently-remembered-their-pasts is another popular back-from-the-dead trope for shows grounded in the TV version of reality (Downton Abbey, we’re lookin' at you). The 2011-2012 TV season was full of such surprising revelations. Check out the most shocking returns of this year... from beyond the grave.
