Regret Me Not

Still shaken by her mother's confession that she loved a man other than her father, Dani doesn't understand why Angela wouldn't try to find her lost love, so she asks Nico to track him down. After her mother suffers a minor heart attack, Dani becomes even more determined to reunite her mother and Eddie Marconi. But Dr. Gunner thinks that Angela's heart attack is actually a wakeup call for Dani, not Angela, because Dani is the one who's avoiding resolving the issues around her own lost love.

TK's search for a sponsor seems like a bust until he runs into his old hero and friend, Cojo Liberty, at an AA meeting. At first Cojo is reluctant to take on TK this early in his own process, but their connection is so strong that Cojo eventually agrees. But as happy as he is to have Cojo as his sponsor, TK is still not exactly giving in to the process. Will TK's stubbornness make Cojo walk?

Nico and the Hawks management hit a snag trying to sell the team when they discover that Pittman secretly sold the stadium, parking lot and practice facilities to undisclosed third parties at half its value. Without the stadium, no one will buy the Hawks. As the acting GM, Matt is upset that Nico didn't tell him about the issue, especially since he heard about it from Noelle, who is back in town and interested in picking up where they left off. With the new star quarterback Rex Evans suddenly flying off the handle at games and messing up plays left and right, Matt wonders if he can bail water fast enough to save this sinking ship. Maybe a little diversion from the very smart and attractive Noelle wouldn't be such a bad thing...

About Necessary Roughness

Dr. Dani Santino (Callie Thorne) thought she had it all figured out: she had a beautiful home, a successful husband, two great teenaged kids, and a satisfying career as a psychotherapist. But when she caught her husband cheating, Dani's perfect world began to unravel, and she was forced to find a way to keep her family, her finances, and her sanity intact. Then a romantic encounter with Matt (Marc Blucas), the handsome trainer of the local pro football team, the New York Hawks, leads to the chance for Dani to demonstrate her special brand of "tough love" therapy. Before she can say "Hail Mary," Dani has taken on the team's unpredictable star wide receiver, Terrence "TK" King (Mehcad Brooks), as a patient and has become the most sought-after therapist for pro athletes and other high-profile personalities on Long Island. Even with the ups and downs of being a newly divorced single parent and being employed by a demanding organization with its very own "Fixer"—the mysterious Nico (Scott Cohen)—Dani begins to find her footing.

As football season ramps up once again, Dr. Dani has a whole new batch of issues to tackle, both personally and professionally. Now that she's more deeply invested in the Hawks players' welfare—and in a new relationship with Matt—the pressure is definitely on to hold it all together, all while trying to keep her kids on track. It's a whole new season...and a whole new set of crazy.
