Needing all the help she can get, Jax brings in an ambitious defense attorney to lead the case, but things get tense very quickly. Can Jax defend her friend, save her marriage and protect her energy while being catapulted into the biggest case of her career? Or will she lose it all?

1. Will Jax and Lewis Work It Out?

Last season things were not looking good for Lewis (McKinley Freeman) but he really showed up for Jax, especially in those final few episodes. We’re hoping they’ll solidify things in Season 2!

2. Morris Chestnut Steps Into The Courtroom

We didn’t have lawyer Morris Chestnut on our 2024 bingo card but we’re happy to see it. We’re looking forward to seeing him suit up all season long.  Kerry Washington and Raamla Mohamed get props for pulling our favorite ’90’s eye candy for this show every season. Michael Ealy and Sean Patrick Thomas kept us coming back last time and this time we’re all about Morris!

3. Emayatzy Be ACTING!!!

We’ve been fans of Emayatzy Corinealdi for a minute but we loved watching her in the driver’s seat in this role. She kept things super spicy and didn’t always get it right (why do women fall for Michael Ealy every time?!) but she showed up and showed out when it mattered and we can’t wait to see what Season 2 has in store.
