FX’s tense drama THE BRIDGE returns for its second season with the continuing saga of Detectives Sonya Cross (Diane Kruger) and Marco Ruiz (Demian Bichir) as they seek to stop the killing of young woman in Juarez, Mexico, whether it be by one man “El Diablo” or a coordinated culture of police corruption and depravity amongst a select few who view these girls as disposable commodities. Also left unresolved from the first season is whether Marco will actually go forward on his vendetta against the man who killed his son.
Simultaneously, there is the fates of Charlotte Millwright (Annabeth Gish) and her faithful farm hand Cesar (Alejandro Patino), who inherited a tunnel between the U.S. and Mexico, which Fausto Galvin (Ramon Franco), the Mexican drug cartel leader, considers his business investment and property for his exclusive use in smuggling drugs over the border. But there may be a bit of a tug of war for that business opportunity with the appearance of Monte P. Flagman (Lyle Lovett) who may have his own designs on the tunnel and the drug enterprise.
Also pursuing life on the sidelines and looking for an angle to exploit to further their careers are Daniel Frye (Matthew Lillard) and Adrianna Mendez (Emily Rios), who are certain that there is a much bigger story to be uncovered with the disappearing girls of Juarez.
With so many lives unknowingly intertwined, yet all following the same threads to perhaps the same end point, things are about to get a lot more heated and intense and dangerous for everyone.
During a special premiere, the cast of THE BRIDGE took a few minutes to preview where their varied characters’ stories pick back up as well as introducing a few new characters who join the fight against drug trafficking and human slavery in both El Paso and Juarez, Mexico. [Read more…]
