‘Shades of Blue’ Episode Guide (March 5): Harlee Covers Up Her Murder

“Unforgiven” Season 2 Premiere (03/05/17) – Harlee Santos (Jennifer Lopez) takes drastic measures to cover up the murder of her abusive ex, Miguel. Lieutenant Matt Wozniak (Ray Liotta) makes a deal with FBI Agent Robert Stahl (Warren Kole) to keep himself and his crew out of jail but soon discovers Stahl has led him into an impossible trap.

As the crew deals with the fall-out from the failed heist, Tess (Drea DeMatteo) struggles to keep her painful gunshot wound under wraps.

Guest starring in this episode are Anna Gunn, Margaret Colin, Ritchie Coster and Leslie Silva.

Harlee Santos (Jennifer Lopez) is a charismatic single mother and resourceful detective at the heart of a tight-knit crew of Brooklyn detectives, led by enigmatic Lt. Matt Wozniak (Ray Liotta) who often leads the team to step outside the limitations of the law in order to effectively protect their precinct and their own.

Harlee navigates her fractured relationship with Wozniak as she struggles to conceal her deepest secret: She killed her daughter’s father. Following his discovery that Harlee collaborated with the FBI, Wozniak is confronted with a gut-wrenching dilemma of his own. The crew is under tight scrutiny from Stahl (Warren Kole) and the FBI as well as from Internal Affairs, in the form of a gregarious detective, Verco (guest star Dov Davidoff), who investigates the disappearance of one of their own. Meanwhile, a former member of their crew, Julia Ayres (guest star Anna Gunn) runs for mayor and her complex relationship with Harlee and Wozniak comes to the fore. Neither Harlee nor Wozniak anticipates that Ayres’ corrupt connections will trap them in a dangerous war with the Mafia.

The cast includes Drea de Matteo (“Sopranos,” “Sons of Anarchy”), Dayo Okeniyi (“Terminator: Genisys,” “Hunger Games”), Vincent Laresca (“The Aviator,” “Fast and Furious Tokyo Drift”), Hampton Fluker (“Aquarius,” “The Blind Side”), Sarah Jeffery (“Rogue,” “Wayward Pines”) and Gino Anthony Pesi (“Dallas,” “The Vampire Diaries”). Anna Gunn (“Breaking Bad,” “Gracepoint”) is a recurring guest star.
