She reveals that the aunt she lives with is a Haitian Voodoo priestess whose father was brought back from the dead as a zombie and enslaved. One of the girls in attendance, Fanny (Louise Labèque), is intrigued by the revelation. She hopes that Mélissa’s living relative will help her address an erotic obsession.

THE BAKER AND THE BEAUTY 9 p.m. on ABC. Daniel (Victor Rasuk) is a family-oriented baker unaccustomed to being in the public eye. Noa (Nathalie Kelley) is a model, entrepreneur and actress whose every move is tabloid fodder. They met by chance and hit it off in the debut episode of this series, which premiered in April, but have struggled to merge their very dissimilar lives ever since. Vengeful exes, familial strife, Noa’s controlling manager and a meddling journalist have all contributed to their ongoing difficulties. In last week’s episode, it looked like many of the major conflicts had been resolved, but Noa decided to end the budding relationship anyway after seeing all the trouble it had caused. The two-hour finale tonight leaves plenty of time for the erstwhile couple to experience more highs and lows.
