Caught by the FBI, Ethan is brought back to Phoenix to face charges for murder, where he sits in jail. As Emma continues to search for evidence that can help Ethan's case, she clashes with Ted and Kristin over her unwavering support of a murder suspect. Alec's (recurring guest star ADRIAN PASDAR) relationship with the victim prevents him from taking the case himself so he assigns a star
prosecutor from his firm, prompting Dan (recurring guest star TYLER CHRISTOPHER) to reach out to an ex-girlfriend who is now a successful defense attorney. Meanwhile, encouraged by their time together in hiding, Sutton has her own plans for Ethan. Recurring guest star GIL BIRMINGHAM appears as Ben Whitehorse.
