Here's a description of Pat Allanson's story by Linda Stasi of the New York Post:
The story begins right after divorcee Pat hooks up with and marries a younger man, Tom Allanson (Ryan McPartlin), who'd just left his wife and child for the sexed-up Pat.
Because Tom's father, Walter (Victor Garber), is the richest lawyer in their small Southern town, larcenous, lascivious Pat figures she's finally hit the big time and is determined to live like Scarlett O'Hara.
Pat, who seemingly doesn't have a good or kind bone in her body, right off gets into it with Tom's father and then goads the younger Allanson into violence against the mean older man, going so far as to say that the elder Allanson tried to rape her.
During a summer holiday town picnic, Pat drags Tom into their truck to have sex in the parking lot, and then Tom goes to his parents' house, even though his father said publicly that he wants to kill the son, and ends up killing his father and his mother. But no money's forthcoming, so in a very short time, Tom's loving grandparents who helped Tom and Pat buy their dream plantation, get horribly sick (arsenic), and one of them even dies -- leaving Pat as the obvious culprit.
And according to Ms. Stasi, that's just the beginning!
