Con man Benjamin Jones broke the cardinal role of the confidence game in THE CATCH: don’t fall in love with your mark. He and his partners intended to con top private investigator Alice Vaughan, but Ben fell in love with the woman he pretended he was going to marry.
At the end of THE CATCH’s first season, Ben made the ultimate sacrifice and turned himself in to save Alice from going to prison for a crime she didn’t committ (and a crime *he* actually committed). When the show returns for its second season this spring, “Ben is forced to reckon with his criminal
past, while the team at Anderson Vaughan Investigations must come to terms with getting in bed with the bad guys. How will Alice and Ben game the system — and each other — to stay together and overcome their less-than- legal pasts?”
It’s clear from the preview below that Ben wants to reunite with Alice when he gets out of prison for art theft and it looks like he’ll get his chance sooner than he thought when the FBI recruits him as a consultant to help take down other criminals.
THE CATCH returns for its second season on March 9 at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
