After a season of progress under the care of Dani, TK faced a major setback in last season's finale of "Necessary Roughness" (Wed., 10 p.m. ET on USA). In fact, he faced an assassin's bullet. But did anyone really think he would die? That mystery was solved quickly, as TK was revealed to be alive, but not necessarily well, in the show's Season 2 premiere.
Six weeks later, TK was of course ready to clear himself, and the team was more than ready to welcome him back with open arms. But at a promotional event, Dani was proven right -- when is she not right? -- as TK suffered from post-traumatic stress disorder. In his PTSD-deluded state, he thought he saw the gunman in the crowd and drew his own gun.
That could have been a horrific disaster, so thankfully Nico was on hand to keep TK from firing into a crowd of Hawk's fans. That would have probably ended his career right there. As it is, he seems to have taken a few steps back after last season's progress, but that's the nature of scripted TV: Forward momentum must happen as slowly as possible.
Dani and Matt continued to canoodle, while Marshall Pittman finally got some screen time, and a face to go along with it. His divorce is likely to shake things up for the whole team, creating even more drama for both TK and Dani to contend with.
"Necessary Roughness" continues Wednesdays at 10 p.m. ET on USA.
