With Hardy all recovered from his stabbing by one of Joe's followers at the end of last series, he is reunited with FBI agent Mike Weston to investigate a new murder spree bearing a striking resemblance to Carroll's style.
Although Carroll supposedly perished at the end of last series, Ryan's suspicious he's not dead at all. Is he still alive or has one of his crazy followers taken on the task of co-ordinating murders?
Watch out for 90210's Jessica Stroup who's joining this series as Ryan's niece and fellow cop, and Homeland's Sam Underwood who might be a member of Carroll's violent sleeper cell.
