Whose Team Are You On

While the Hawks players seem to be getting along better than usual, the Hawks WAGS (Wives and Girlfriends) are waging war. Trouble with the WAGS means trouble for the team, so after two of the wives face off in a public confrontation, Dani is quickly called in to help Shannon and Leanne work through their differences. While at first the former friends won't open up to Dani, when Shannon gets busted for shoplifting she turns to Dani for help. Now, Dani must help Shannon get to the bottom of her issues, ease the tension among the WAGS, and find a way to get the Hawks back on track.

While Dani takes the diplomatic route with the women, she doles out the tough love elsewhere. When Nico comes to Dani for advice, she sees a new side to her enigmatic employer, and counsels him to stop enabling his troubled young friend, who happens to be the daughter of Hawks owner Marshall Pittman. And when under the influence of painkillers after a football injury, Ray Jay reveals the truth about his friendship with TK, Dani realizes that it's time to lay down the law about professional boundaries. As difficult as it is, Dani knows she has to stand her ground with TK — even if it means risking losing her star patient.

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.
