The Juicy Scoop

When we last saw Jax, she was reeling from a grueling trial and a scandalous affair that left her world upside down.

Just as she’s starting to pick up the pieces, life throws her a curveball: one of her closest friends drops a bombshell confession—she’s killed her husband.

Cue the dramatic music!

Her friend claims it was self-defense, but of course, nothing is ever that simple in TV land.

Enter the hard-nosed prosecutor who’s not buying the self-defense story for a second.

Jax, ever the determined defender, ropes in an ambitious defense attorney to take the lead.

But as tensions rise, Jax finds herself juggling the biggest case of her career, her rocky marriage, and her ever-dwindling sanity.

Will she triumph against all odds, or will the pressure make her crack?
