Good Will Haunting Necessary Roughness

Dani thinks that Carl Webber is trying to send her a message—not from the Great Beyond but through the flash drive he mailed to her right before he committed suicide. The problem is that whatever is on the drive is encrypted, so Dani turns to Nico for help decoding it. Nico reluctantly agrees. He definitely wants to know exactly what Carl was up to, however he doesn’t want to drag Dani any further into this mess than she already is. But she’s not letting go of that drive. Carl sent it to her for a reason; she owes it to him to figure out why.

When a video of TK and Sheera having relations in the hotel room on the night TK was supposed to be alone during the pre-game curfew goes viral, Coach Wiznewski goes mental.

Connor, not wanting his client’s value in the non-football marketplace to diminish, springs into action. His first stop is Coach Wiz, who has some complicated demands of his own. It’s going to take some high-level maneuverings before the trade deadline by Connor to fix this mess, which already has TK on edge. Sheera, however is not disturbed by the leaked video and seems to be enjoying her time in the spotlight perhaps a little too much…

So far, Troy and Paloma’s unholy alliance is proving to be a mutually beneficial one, that is until Paloma sees Troy getting cozy with another sexy assistant.

Now she has to decide whether the promised promotion is worth it.

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.
