Panicked and with no idea of what happened, Cassie decides to clean up the crime scene and then catch a flight from Bangkok back to New York City, where she’s greeted by FBI agents. 

As the story transpires, Cassie suffers intermittent flashbacks and hallucinations, all while she wonders who the killer could be.  

Season two reportedly finds Cassie living a sober life in Los Angeles while moonlighting as a CIA asset in her spare time. But things change when an overseas assignment leads her to inadvertently witness a murder, and thus, becoming entangled in another international intrigue.     

Ubach will play Carol Atkinson, also known as Black Market Carol, a well-groomed flight attendant, with an icy personality who is not a fan of Cassie.
