The Catch Season 2 – Family Way

the-catch-tv-seriesDanny and Margot got horizontal. Tommy was taken away by the Feds. Reece and Ben are duped by the Diplomat-kid-diamond smuggler Jessie when Reece was cut with a knife coated in puffer fish poisonous venom.

Alice and Ben hold each other at gunpoint then make a truce when they focus on getting their hands on three million dollars courtesy of Margot. She realises its suddenly really complicated. Alice tells her Reece is going to die if she doesn’t give Ben three million dollars and Tommy needs the money too.

Reece is being his usual self and making deals with Jessie even though he’s enduring a slow death by venom. Margot agrees to come up with the cash. Agent Diaz drove the Diplomat home and realised she wasn’t the smuggler and Jessie can be arrested now he doesn’t have Diplomatic immunity. The Feds charge Tommy for murdering the Kincaids. Nick turns up with Val and breaks the bad news to Alice.

Ben comes back to the house and finds Reece looking well again, with Jessie and his sidekick Umi. Reece gives the cash to Jessie and the deal is on. Alice finds her apartment broken into and smashed up. Tommy is there with a gun. He’s not in jail, and he’s been drinking. He demands to know where the money is. Tommy got out, and had called Ethan; a big time friend of the Mayor who owns most of the real estate downtown. Alice tells Val about it and says she’s pretending not to know about it so she doesn’t owe Ethan any favours.

Danny and Sophie are awkward after he slept with Margot. Tommy turns up at the office and Sophie’s furious with him. Agent Diaz turns up at Ben’s and points out that they work for her. She tells them to reopen the restaurant and sign for the giant bluefin with diamonds inside, and then she’ll swoop in. Back at the restaurant, the fish arrives and Ben cuts it open. The diamonds are gone.

At a meeting, Margot is playing footsie under the table, making Danny squirm. A stolen handbag carried by Margot’s mystery assassin is the focus of their next case.

Danny and Margot get frisky but Ben arrives, furious that Margot stole the diamonds. Danny hides in the shower and overhears their discussion about how Ben ruined Margot’s life.

Tasker calls Alice and changes the terms of their arrangement now that Tommy’s a liability, out on bail. Ethan turns up to see Alice, and it’s awkward, she tells him Tommy’s in trouble and asks if Ethan still has friends at the SEC.

Sophie has a weird connection with The Hammer. They’re at a Hotel tracking down the stolen handbag-carrying assassin. They call Val and manage to get into the Hotel room and discover whomever is in it has been tracking Margot for a long time, given the extensive photos on her room’s wall. She hears them in the room and escapes on a motorcycle. When Val tells Margot they’ve found her would be killer; Alice goes to meet with Tasker to negotiate Tommy’s freedom, and Tommy warns her he’ll have bodyguards and weapons. He waits in her office.

Ben and Reece tell Agent Diaz the diamonds were stolen. They don’t tell her it was Margot. Diaz comes up with a plan to lure Jessie into the open and find out if he stole the diamonds by pretending to be concerned about his Mom. Ben takes photos of them and shows them to Umi, Jessie’s partner. Double cross.

Ben shows Jessie photos of Reece and Umi, then they play them off each other. Alice goes to the meet but Tasker shows up with an entourage. Tasker gets a phone call from his business Manager – all their assets are frozen and under review by the SEC. Alice gets a confession to the murder of the Kincaids and Nick swoops in with the FBI. Diaz asks who stole the diamonds.

Alice meets with Ethan and returns the bail money he paid, and asks him not to contact Tommy again. He asks if she’s happy, and says its all he ever wanted.

Umi takes Reece to the restaurant to get the diamonds and Jessie arrives with Ben just as Umi discovers that the fish is empty. Agent Diaz rushes in after Jessie admits he’s running the operation and the FBI arrest them both.

Nick arrives at Alice’s office to collect the millions Tommy took from the Cartel. It’s gone.  Tommy left a note for Alice, saying he’s sorry, but she turns up at the airport just in time. He says he can’t change, and takes the money, and she tells him not to call or ever come back.

Alice’s Team recreated the photo wall seen at the mystery woman’s Hotel room. Danny remembers hearing Margot talk about ‘the Rectory’ and they decide to set a trap, and they plan to make her go to the vault to steal the money, so they can arrest her.

Val, Danny, Margot and Alice storm into the vault just as the mystery woman is poised to steal the cash. Margot asks what do you want. The woman takes off her headscarf and asks if Margot recognises her.

The mystery woman is Margot’s daughter.

We saw that coming, too.

Try harder next week, The Catch.
