Duval's sister (and Pritchard's daughter), Helen is dating Wally, a parole officer with whom she was linked while they were both in high school. Pritchard's disdain for Wally hasn't changed since then, but Pritchard can't let his previous history with Wally be discovered by Helen. Much to the chagrin of Pritchard and Duval, they discover Wally is being coerced by a prisoner to carry out an elaborate prison break, and must team up with Wally to stop the prisoner from carrying out his grand plans. Meanwhile, Alexa speaks out to Mary about her distrust of Pritchard, and Otto mourns the anniversary of his parents' death.

Seventy-five-year-old Jimmy Pritchard is a shell of his former self. A drinker, a womanizer and a father who always put work before family, Pritchard was forced to resign as L.A. County Sheriff for corrupt conduct more than a decade ago. Now, some 15 unkind years later, he is killed when he stumbles upon a robbery at the home of FBI Agent Duval Pritchard, one of his three children.
But death is surprisingly short for Jimmy, who is brought back to life by billionaire tech-genius twins Mary Goodwin and her brother, Otto, founders of the social networking empire, Lookinglass. Resurrected as a younger version of himself, with physical abilities of which he never dreamed, a re-animated Pritchard is given a second chance at life. What will he do with it? Will he seek vengeance against those who killed him? Will he try to repair the damage he did to his family? Will he embrace a new sense of purpose or fall prey to old temptations?
