Snap Out Of It

Paloma has been giving Dani a hard time about her empty social calendar, particularly the lack of dates on it. She manages to convince Dani to come to a V3 Girls’ Night Out, where Sam Conte—a very attractive V3 agent from the west coast—hits on Dani. But Dani claims she’s too busy to think about dating right now. She’s trying to figure out why motivational speaker, writer and TV personality Nolan Powers has been acting so strangely, including telling Dani he’s considering suicide and disappearing without telling his concerned fiancée where he is.

Complicating matters is the fact that despite his very traumatic childhood, Powers rejects Dani’s offer to help. His whole credo is built around the concept that people don’t need therapy. All they need to do is to “snap out of it.” Instead of believing Dani that something is seriously wrong with Powers, Connor takes Powers’ word that there’s nothing more going on with him than some severe migraines. But when Powers winds up in a police station in Trenton after trying to burn down his childhood home, Connor can no longer deny that Dani is right.

TK and his new lady friend, model and fellow V3 client Sheera, have not only moved past a one-night stand into dating territory, but also they’ve decided to partner up on TK’s business idea to create a women’s lingerie company for buxom women. After Sheera goes around TK to pitch the idea to Connor on her own, TK “fires” her. The only trouble is that Connor loves the proposal and thinks it will work better as a partnership. Whether TK wants to be or not, he’s now formally “in bed” with Sheera.

It becomes clear that Nico has worked out a deal with the feds: they’ll wipe his slate clean with Marshall Pittman if he helps them dig around V3’s accounts. However, in order to hand over the second set of books his hacker has uncovered, Nico wants a serious favor in return.

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.
