'The Fix' spoilers for episode 3 include Sevvy Johnson possibly finding an alibi, while Travis hunts down the mystery woman
By the looks of both the teasers, it is safe to say this episode will be gripping, here's what we will get to see when the third episode airs on Monday night
Last Monday, ABC released the second episode of their new legal drama, 'The Fix,' revolving around Maya Travis (Robin Tunney) a former district attorney who resigned from her post after she failed to prosecute movie star Sevvy Johnson (Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje). Eight years after Johnson is suspected for the murder of his girlfriend Jessica Meyer (Taylor Kalupa), Travis is called back at the DA's office for a chance at redemption.
Before we head on to the preview for the 3rd episode, here is a short recap of the important scenes that happened last Monday. We witnessed Ben Mitchell commit suicide, and Travis claimed in a press conference that Ezra Wolf the defense attorney is the one responsible for his death due to his false assumptions.
We also saw that while the agents were searching Johnson's house they found a bag in his youngest daughter's dollhouse. The bag consisted of a large sum of money and car keys that were Meyer's. Which hinted that she was planning an escape. Finally, we got to know that Johnson has a mystery girlfriend who is the new suspect in the murder case of Jessica Meyer.
Looking at the trailer released, here's potentially what we will get to see when the third episode airs on Monday night. The second episode ended with Johnson visiting his mystery girlfriend. That cliffhanger might lead to episode 3. In a sneak peek that was uploaded to the Twitter by 'The Fix', it is revealed C.J. Bernstein (Merrin Dungey), a senior investigator for the DA's office, finds out that Johnson has a new "sidekick", and claims, "Once a cheater always a cheater."
Bernstein reveals she's followed up at all the hotels Johnson has been at, and a guy who works in the kitchen gave her the old receipts that belonged to the room the mystery woman stayed in. With these details up her sleeve, Travis and Bernstein headout to meet the other woman so they can find out more information about her and if she does have any connection with Meyer's murder. By the looks of that, we would probably get to know more about the other woman when the episode airs, and hopefully, it would satisfy our curiosity about her.
In the second episode, we also witnessed that Loni Kampour (Mouzam Makkar) claimed that Travis was not the right person for the job. In the very same sneak peek, we see that Kampour suddenly has a change of heart and walks into Travis' office, telling her she might be the right person for the job, after all. But it is still not clear if Kampour is repentant for leaking the information about Johnson's house raid to Wolf or if she is just tricking Travis to gain more information, so she can warn Wolf.

We saw that Gabriel Johnson (Alex Saxon), Sevvy Johnson's stepson from his first wife who was murdered, trusted every word his stepfather said. But in another teaser, we see Gabriel and Sevvy have a fallout where he tells his stepdad he does not believe him anymore. What could have Gabriel found out? The teaser also reveals Sevvy goes back to his ex-wife Julia Johnson (Robin Givens) for help.
There can surely be no episode without Wolf (Scott Cohen) making an appearance. In the teaser, he talks to Sevvy about an alibi who can help them out. This might be the main cliffhanger that we need to look out for in the episode. Apart from that, the teaser also showcases that Travis finds something regarding the murder case and tells Wolf she is going to prove Sevvy murdered Meyer and he is going down with him as well.
By the looks of both the teasers, it is safe to say this episode will be gripping. Expect the usual red herrings and cliffhangers like we witnessed in the first two episodes. 'The Fix' airs every Monday on ABC. Check your local listings for more information.
