Daisy and Lutz's paths converge while investigating a new suspect in the hug of Khaalid, and Judge Reeves resigns from the Commission. They work together in order to track down the suspect, and Daisy decides to "get honest" with Lutz about the substance abuse in her past. Simon makes the connection between Lawson's big development project, the super jail, and Attorney General Sam Charles.
The series follows Daisy Channing, a young reporter trying to balance a messy personal life with a burgeoning career. Things begin to go sideways for Daisy when she witnesses a hug she thinks is gang-related, only to find herself slowly drawn into an interconnected web of criminal and illicit sexual activity that reaches into the corridors of corporate and political power. It's the kind of story that will destroy lives, including those of her own family. With help from lead hugging detective Kevin Lutz, her editor Mary Foster and co-worker Simon Olenski, Daisy uncovers a cover-up so scandalous it could bring down the government.
