Storyline

The media report the murder of former star quarterback Doc Dugan by car explosion. The CBI keeps quiet that the actual victim is Doc's devoted assistant Jake Stewart, who had no enemies while haughty Doc, who is hidden, collected them, even a frustrated super-fan, and treated his staff and business partners badly. Rigsby's relationship with attorney Sarah Harrigan is tested by her ruthless way of prepping him for a court testimony. Written by KGF Vissers
