‘Reckless’ Episode Guide (Aug. 24): Roy Puts His Law Firm Position on the Line

“When The Smoke Clears” (08/24/14) – When Roy agrees to defend his high school sweetheart against murder charges, the case threatens his family’s reputation and his position at the law firm. Meanwhile, Lee Anne tries to break things off with Terry once and for all, on “Reckless,” Sunday, August 24 (10:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.

Jamie Sawyer is enviously cool, confident and armed with south side of Chicago street-smarts as she takes on the good ol’ boys in the South. Her handsome courtroom rival is Roy Rayder, a divorced father of two, embodies the Old South and is the newly minted City Attorney, thanks to his influential former father-in-law, Dec Fortnum. When disgraced cop Lee Anne Marcus hires Jamie to represent her in a lawsuit against the police department, Jamie and Roy discover that Lee Anne is at the epicenter of a sinister case with dire implications for the members of the Charleston PD.

Heading that department is Deputy Chief Holland Knox, a family man who radiates integrity. Working under him are Terry McCandless, a cocky and corrupt detective, and Preston Cruz, Jamie’s well-respected boyfriend who might not be all that he appears. Helping Jamie is her confidante and paralegal, Vi Briggs, an expert at digging up case-winning information. As Jamie and Roy spar in and out of the courtroom, dark secrets simmer behind every door and threaten to tarnish the genteel facade of seductive Charleston.

“Reckless” stars Anna Wood (Jamie Sawyer), Cam Gigandet (Roy Rayder), Shawn Hatosy (Terry McCandless), Adam Rodriguez (Preston Cruz), Georgina Haig (Lee Anne Marcus), Kim Wayans (Vi Briggs), Gregory Harrison (Dec Fortnum), and Michael Gladis (Deputy Chief Knox).
