But who is keeping Inès (Nour Belkhiria) hostage in a dirty basement? Indefensible? The young woman only has an old mattress and a bucket at her disposal, and live images of her are broadcast in the dimly lit room.
Three suspects managed to attack the young criminal, but viewers will have to be patient, because the identity of the villain will not be known until the end of the third episode, on Wednesday.
The kidnapper tortures Inès in his own way and refuses to show himself. The lawyer, for her part, is visibly wasting away while the tension is total. Sometimes discouraged, sometimes angry, she tries to survive.
The person holding her against her will could be Shawn Godin (Pierre-Paul Alain), Inès’s client and one of the last people to see her before her disappearance. Godin, who was suffering from post-traumatic shock, killed one of his co-workers at the Olympic Park.
Unless it is the dangerous postman Jérémie Martel (Lucien Ratio), accused of sexual crimes in the first season of the fiction produced by Pixcom. He and Inès crossed paths just before she was kidnapped.
This whole affair could also be the work of singer Louna Rose’s (Roxane Bruneau) brooding admirer, Mylène Kirouac (Rebecca Vachon), who has now set her sights on Inès.
The truth is that, after having seen the four episodes this week, which marks the return of the judicial newspaper after the festive break, Inès will have important consequences if she manages to overcome it. Actress Nour Belkhiria also offers powerful scenes that confirm her great talent.
Worry in the office
At the office, everyone is worried about Inès, starting with André (Michel Laperrière), with whom she worked on the Shawn Godin case. This leads to touching moments, including one in which André shows himself as Inès’s father.
Everyone collaborates to find her, including her colleagues Léo (Sébastien Delorme) and Marie-Anne (Anne-Élisabeth Bossé), but also the investigator Maxime (Mathieu Baron) and the private detective Claude (Nathalie Madore). We will also meet Inès’s father, Lofti (Belkacem Lahbaïri), who, remember, has already lost a daughter…
Marie-Anne, for her part, remains worried about her recent miscarriage.
Child abuse and a new addition to the office
As life continues despite the disappearance of Inès, Léo must defend the pastor Martial Quintin (Benoit Brière), accused of mistreating his children. He and her wife Myriam Ferron (Ingrid Falaise) accuse each other of her, forcing the latter to be represented by her own lawyer.
To Léo’s surprise, it is Kim Nolin (Julie Trépanier), a former intern at the company, who defends M.me Ferron. We already know that at the end of this game with Léo, Mmy Nolin will join the firm Lapointe, MacDonald & Desjardins. Keep in mind that the children of the Quintin-Ferron couple will testify of the horror they experienced before Judge Hochu (Claire Gagnon), who will be shocked like us in our living rooms.
