On last week’s premiere episode Ray’s life was thrown into absolute turmoil when his father Mickey unexpectedly got out of prison five years early, killed a priest, and arrived in LA, vowing to take revenge on Ray for framing him.
Meanwhile, Ray’s mentor, Ezra Goldman (Elliott Gould), and his law partner, Lee Drexler (Peter Jacobson), needed Ray to find a way to get a “straight” action star out of a scandal with a transsexual. Ray had to also protect a beautiful singer from a stalker, but the case leds to tension between him and his wife, Abby (Paula Malcomson). Did you watch last week’s series premiere episode?

On tonight’s show Ray activates a plan to send his father Mickey back to prison. His father Mickey, played by Jon Voight, has other plans though and spends time with Ray’s wife Abby, played by Paula Malcomson and their kids. It is a serious betrayal that will have lasting implications.
