The "American Horror Story: Asylum" star will play Danny Castellano's (Chris Messina) much talked about ex-wife Christina, a well-traveled war photographer who broke his heart when she cheated on him.
She'll make an unexpected return to his life after receiving the letter Morgan (Ike Barinholtz) mailed to her without telling Danny. She's willing to settle down this time if Danny's willing to give her a second chance.
