For the second episode of the season, the team will be delving into the world of illegal racing after a Marine staff sergeant's body is found in a junkyard. Obviously, that's not all because we always have to introduce a little drama as well.

While the investigation is going on, Tennant (Vanessa Lachey) thinks that Alex (Kai Holman) is hiding something from her, and Whistler (Tori Anderson) is anxious about introducing Lucy (Yasmine al-Bustami) to her coworkers.
