'The Fix': More plot twists in episode 2 leave fans hankering for more of ABC's new legal drama

On Monday night, ABC aired the second episode of its new legal drama series, 'The Fix'. The series revolves around Maya Travis (Robin Tunney), a former L.A. district attorney. Travis resigns from her post as D.A. and moves to a ranch in Washington after she fails to prosecute movie star Sevvy Johnson (Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje) for a double murder. Eight years after she moves to a ranch in Washington, Johnson is once again suspected for another murder, and Travis is requested to come back to the DA’s office for a chance at redemption. 


When the second episode aired Monday, we witnessed more cliffhangers and red herrings. Apart from that, we saw a shocking turn of events after Ben Mitchell dies by suicide. Travis claimed Ezra Wolf was the one responsible for Mitchell's death because of his false assumptions that stated Mitchell was the one who killed Jessica Meyer.

We also saw Travis share Meyer's recording of each time she was harmed by Johnson and a new suspect at the end of the episode - a woman who Johnson seems to be dating. We don't know anything else about her as yet.

Also, in the second episode, when the agents are searching for evidence in Johnson's house, one agent finds something is hidden in Johnson's youngest daughters doll house. When Travis goes inside and checks it out, she finds a huge sum of money and car keys.

After first speculating that it belonged to Johnson, and that he was trying to escape, they finally discover it belonged to Meyer and she was planning to escape. After further investigation they find out that it was Ben Mitchell who had given her the money and the car keys to help her escape.

With all the plot twists and cliffhangers the second episode had to offer on Monday, fans revealed how much they love the show and that they want more of the legal drama series. "Loved the new episode of #TheFix so much! I‘m so hooked already. Can’t wait for more! @RealRobinTunney you never cease to amaze me and you have no idea how happy I am to see you back on screen. Love you so much! @thefixabc," wrote a fan. 


While another added, "Just watched E1& E2 of #TheFix I Am Hooked @thefixabc Powerful performances by Robin Tunney and Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje [and] peppered with unexpected twists [and] a few red herrings kept me riveted." 

Apart from talking about how much they love the legal drama series, fans speculated that Johnson might be innocent after all, and some tried to predict who might end up being Meyer's murderer. "Okaaaayy, but, I think Sevvy is innocent. Anyone else? #TheFix," said a fan. Another wrote, "An hour in and i already think Robin Givens [who plays Julianne Johnson, Sevvy's first wife] killed all of them. Really hope i’m wrong. #TheFix."


Fans are even talking about how Marcia Clark might be reliving her OJ Simpson murder trial through 'The Fix'. "I don't give a damn what Marcia Clark says, she is definitely reliving the O.J. Simpson trial through this new picture #TheFix," said a fan. While another added, "Ok #TheFix is looking like an #OJSimpson plot. I mean a guy who looks like a double for #RobKardashianSr. @MarciaClarkESQ it’s just too much of a coincidence. IJS but the show is good so far." 

'The Fix' airs every Monday on ABC. Check your local listings for more information.
