Sarah finds herself needing to get close to Danny "Cheat" Chetowski (Clayne Crawford, The Glades), a rough man with a taste for drugs, hookers, and throwing money around. When she goes home with him in an attempt to bug his place, things go horribly sideways, with Grace and Leni trying to piece together what happened in the hopes of finding Sarah alive.
At the center of it all is a group of four friends, one of whom is Cheat. The four are former Marines who had been stationed in Afghanistan, and who now run a private security outfit called Excelsior Intelligence. The obvious head of the pack is Ethan Kelly (Cole Hauser), a calm and calculating man, who is the brains of the operation. Ray (Alec Newman) is the muscle, Spud (Brendan Fletcher) is the tech genius behind the laptop, and last of all is Cheat, the man of action. In order to gain new business for Excelsior, they have to show companies where their security holes are and Cheat is not afraid to get his hands a bit dirty.
As Grace and Leni begin heavily investigating the friends, while searching desperately for Sarah, they begin to uncover layer upon layer of ugliness and intrigue and these four buddies aren't all they seem. Fearing the worst for Sarah, but still hoping to get to her in time, Grace once again decides to go back undercover in the hopes of finding out what actually happened that fateful night at Cheat's apartment. In doing so, she places herself in the cross hairs once again, and as she discovers the truth behind all that happened, she may find herself hung out to dry, once again, by her employers.
To complicate matters much further, Grace's errant mother Vivian (Clare Higgins) has once again waltzed back into her life. At first, it seemed like a good idea for her to be there for Evie (Sarah Jeffery), Grace's teen-aged daughter, but Vivian knows much more about partying and drinking than she does about parenting and soon, Evie and Grace are at odds.
At the heart of the season is Grace, fighting to manage her obligations as a parent, with those of being a handler and an undercover agent. She lives for the thrill of the hunt, but she fiercely loves her daughter as well. Can she straddle the line? The final episode leaves us hanging with quite a cliffhanger, unlike the previous season, which wrapped up with a number of important players being dead in the water, both literally and figuratively.
As far as special features go, there are 17 short featurettes on things like the cast, the sets, the story and more. They are only a couple of minutes long each and there is some overlap between some of them, but it's definitely more than last season had to offer.
I really didn't like Rogue: The Complete First Season much at all. I felt like it was chock full of gratuitous and tacky sex scenes, just because it was a premium channel (DirecTV) show and it just didn't drive me to see what happened next. This season, I binge-watched the 10 episode season in two days , because it was that good. It's not the best cop show out there, but they've really upped their game with even more fantastic actors, nail-biting action and plotline twists and turns aplenty. I enjoyed how the story unfolded, with the viewer learning things as Grace learned them, and things that were said in the first couple of episodes would suddenly make perfect sense towards the end. If you gave Rogue a chance before and weren't too impressed, or even if you didn't, go back for another bite at the apple. While it definitely helps if you saw last season, because a few familiar faces make the rounds, it isn't absolutely necessary. I really enjoyed this season and can't wait to see what happens to Grace next!
