Incredible sunlight through the clouds in Danshui (淡水鎮), Taipei County.
In Plain Sight follows a kind of show that has been made very popular on USA. It follows Burn Notice and Psych. It’s half comedy, half drama. Dramedy. The stories follow Mary Shannon, an officer for the US Marshals Witness Protection. Actually, Psych is all comedy, but you get the idea. It kind of reminds me of Saving Grace on TNT.
On July 21st, In Plain Sight was renewed for a second 16 episode season. That pretty good news.
They have to relocate and protect witnesses to federal cases. In this episode, Brandy’s problems come crashing into Mary’s life. There is a case of mistaken identity and the US Marshals are looking for Mary.
Brandy hides the truth from everyone but her family and things don’t end as well as they could have. This was the first part of the season finale. It was a pretty riveting show.
Warning: Spoilers ahead.

Mary thinks that her family will be the death of her. She is being followed. Jinx is at the audition for the play. She’s doing well. However, she locks herself out of the theater.
Mary sees Jinx walking around in a dance outfit. She kind of looks like a hooker. Her tail leaves her. Mary walks in and finds her mom singing. Her mom freaks out on her and leaves in a fluster, accusing Mary of ruining everything.
As Mary walks out, she gets a call from another federal agent in New Jersey. He asks her about her sister. Before she can make sense of this, she is attacked by two men, who try to abduct her. She manages to fight them off, but they used chloroform. She’s out cold. The men take her away. Some homeless man sees them.

Mary is chained to a pole. She wakes up. She has got a gun, but she can’t do anything. The men bring in Chuck. Chuck tells them that Mary isn’t Brandy. They kidnapped the wrong Shannon. Chuck still has Brandy’s disposable phone number. The kidnapper is named Spanky. He tells Brandy that he’s got Mary and Chuck. He shoots and kills Chuck. He wants the drugs. He tells her to meet her. Brandy gets ready to leave, but O’Conner arrives. He wants to talk. He’s a bit rough with her.
Bobby D, Stan and Marshall run the license plate number that Mary had on her to-do list. The car was reported stolen a few days ago. They found the car. They got a partial from a cup and plan on going to the address.
O’Conner released info that Chuck was abducted with an unidentified female US Marshal. Spanky is informed that a US Marshal was kidnapped. O’Conner just signed Mary’s death warrant. Spanky tells his goon to cut up Mary and dispose of the body. The goon wants to rape Mary first. He makes a mistake. She knocks him in the head and shoots him a couple of times. Another goon comes down, but Mary fires on him. The goon uses a shotgun ten times before Mary hears some more shots. Stan and Marshall take her to the precinct.
