Thirty-eight years ago, Frank Jergens' good side showed itself while he was robbing a bank. During the heist, he turned on the dirty cops who were helping him pull it off. After 38 years in the pen, Jergens is released to Mary and WitSec, but not before making friends and connections on the inside.
Mary is very concerned about Frank's friend, Ray, who is indebted to two criminals who are eager to collect. And the more that Mary engages with Frank, the more she is reminded of her father. When Frank's friend Ray shows up at his door in dire straights, Frank must decide whether life on the outside is as good as it's cracked up to be.
Meanwhile, Mary gets into trouble with WitSec administrators when they find out she's been abusing U.S. Marshal services to track down her sister. Marshall also has his hands full with an ex-writer who is falling apart with her life under protection. Once a promising writer, she now works in a copy store. Marshall goes the distance to get her a new job, but it might not be enough to calm her manic depression.
