Plot Synopsis

Executive produced by Shonda Rhimes and based on the novel by Kate Atkinson, THE CATCH is a thriller that centers on the strong, successful Alice Vaughan, a fraud investigator who's about to be the victim of fraud by her fiance, Benjamin. Alice is LA's top private investigator and the type of woman you don't want to mess with. Having built Anderson/Vaughan Investigations from the ground up with her best friend and business partner, Valerie Anderson, they investigate some of the most elaborate cases around the world, alongside their elite team of private investigators: Danny Yoon, a mischievous and irreverent PI who is not afraid to break the law when necessary to solve a case; and their newest member, Sophie Novak, who serves as their in-house counsel and brilliant hacker. Alice is on the top of her game, but when Benjamin cons her out of millions and disappears, she suddenly becomes the victim and goes on a private mission for payback, stopping at nothing to catch her man. However, she is not the only one chasing Ben. FBI Agent Jules Dao has been following his criminal activity across Europe and now is closer than ever to capturing him and hopes to elicit Alice's help in taking him down. Meanwhile, the elusive Ben has slipped back into the dangerous and sexy world of international crime with his long-time partners, mastermind Margot Bishop and Reggie Lennox. Season 2 of THE CATCH premiered on Thursday, March 9, 2017 at 10pm ET/PT on ABC. At the beginning of the second season, Benjamin has gone from committing the ultimate betrayal to performing the ultimate sacrifice, when he turned himself in to the FBI to save Alice from wrongful imprisonment. Now in jail, 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? The season opener, "The New Deal," features guest stars T.R. Knight and Gina Torres.
On Thursday, May 11, 2017 at 10pm ET/PT, ABC premiered the Season 2 finale of THE CATCH. In the season ender, "The Mockingbird," while Alice and Ben are forced to face their pasts, a shocking betrayal could change everything.
