Dream On

Tyler Paxton, a young pro skateboarder at the helm of a multi-million dollar empire, hasn't been himself lately. Though usually energetic and upbeat, Tyler's moods have changed, and he's been experiencing anxiety, paranoia, and recurring nightmares that have left him afraid to fall asleep — and desperate for Dani's help.

As it turns out, TK is facing a frightening situation of his own: he has a stalker. And when he shows up at his house late one night, TK gets the most terrifying news of all: he may be the father of her 5-year-old son. A DNA test will soon prove whether Charisse's paternity claim is valid, but with TK growing fond of the kid, it's unclear how he will handle the news.

Meanwhile, as Matt and Laura revive their former relationship, Dani and Ray do some rekindling of their own. When their paths cross at their high school reunion, one thing leads to another and Dani and Ray soon find themselves reliving their high school romance. While Ray, eager to win Dani back, swears he's the same man she fell in love with all those years ago, there's just one problem: Dani might not be the same woman.

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.
