After an ill-advised decision regarding an alluring patient who may or may not be struggling with a multiple personality disorder (Gretchen Mol), Chance finds himself in the crosshairs of her abusive spouse (Paul Adelstein), who also happens to be a ruthless police detective. She'll play Christina, Chance's ex-wife. "Perpetually irritated and quick to sense criticism, Christina is now an aspiring photographer with a dyslexic personal trainer boyfriend and an endlessly renewable resentment toward her former husband."
