Kelsey Grammer's Golden Globe-winning Chicago mayor is back with a vengeance in the second season of Starz's drama Boss.

"Nothing empowers him more than having big problems and solving them," Kane's hotshot new young adviser Ian Todd (Glee's Jonathan Groff) tells Kane's imprisoned daughter.

Meanwhile, the duplicitous Kitty (Kathleen Robertson) -- who left Kane's fold in the Season 1 finale -- isn't keeping quiet about the numerous skeletons in her old boss' closet and buddies up to Troy Garity's dedicated reporter.
