In Plain Sight - The Anti-Social Network

After spending six-months at home with her baby girl Mary (Mary McCormack) returns from maternity leave to find Delia (Tangie Ambrose) has temporarily taken over Mary's desk in her absence and there's a government shrink (Ali Marsh) anxiously waiting to discuss the shooting from last season's finale just hours before Mary went into labor.

Marshall (Frederick Weller) has his hands full with his latest witness, a young college student (Joseph Fuhr) who witnesses the son (Michael Grant Terry) of a wealthy and influential businessman kill one of his secret fraternity brothers. Although he's willing to go into his protection, his mother (Rebecca Wisocky), a scientist at the university, cares more about finishing her work protecting her life or that of her son.

The young computer programmer can not only testify to the murder but he's also in possession names of several of the secret organization's wealthy and renown former members involvement in illegal gambling. An attack on Marshall's life allows Mary to sniff out a mole (J. Grant Albrecht) for the Regents inside Witsec.

The show starts off its final season strong with an episode involving a dysfunctional relationship between a mother and a son that hits Mary close to home. It's nice to see Rachel Boston has returned as Marshall's love interest as well. No doubt we'll be getting plenty of Mary juggling her role as mother with her demanding job, something the first episode back does pretty well, even after Jinx (Lesley Ann Warren) leaves for Miami to help a struggling Brandi (Nichole Hiltz).
