Now we know that Neve Campbell will be playing Liz Shepherd, the one Shepherd sister who we know absolutely nothing about. Which means that her storyline, and her reasons for showing up in Seattle, are completely open-ended. She could be another doctor, a mother with nieces and nephews for MerDer, or a fugitive.
