The Fix begins with Maya Travis (Robin Tunney) waking up to an expose about to be revealed on the news; reminding everyone that 8 years prior when she worked the case, she had plenty of controversies then too. Maya immediately calls Riv (Marc Blucas), who is still dealing with Buck Neal (Robert Wisdom); a random stranger claiming the desire to buy some horses. Buck gets a chance to explore the office, his eye catches a video recorder on the desk.

Sevvy Johnson (Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje) visits Jessica Meyer’s (Taylor Kalupa) grave, expressing how much he misses her; but is rudely interrupted by paparazzi. He hands Sevvy a tracker that they use to track famous people.

Maya arrives at the office, asking CJ (Merrin Dungey) what she found. CJ believes she is able to fill on part of the gap missing in Jessica’s timeline, possible witness to her state of mind the night before the murder. Matthew Collier (Adam Rayner) learns the expose is probably Ezra Wolf (Scott Cohen) making noise because she busted his alibi.

Meanwhile, Loni Kampoor (Mouzam Makkar) is secretly taking photos of Ezra and some men leaving a warehouse; she pays the janitor money to learn how often Ezra goes there. Ezra returns to his office and when Area Ahn (Abraham Lim) is unable to find a current photo of Maya; Ezra calls Buck, who tells him he is working on it.

Maya is called into Alan Wiest (Breckin Meyer) office, where he introduces her to Ken Sanders (Rick Holmes), the PR consultant. She is not interested in the help as she feels she is one piece of evidence away from nailing Sevvy Johnson.

Sevvy goes to see his son, Gabriel Johnson (Alex Saxon) after learning he got into a fight. He lets Gabe know he can come home anytime as they are now living in the city; Gabe says there is no way he is moving home. Julianne “Jules” Johnson (Robin Givens) reminds Sevvy he needs to give his son some space but he gets frustrated that Gabe won’t talk to him. She tells him the more he holds on, the harder than will break free as no one wants to be controlled. Sevvy leaves, knowing he placed a tracker on his son.

Maya and CJ walk to The House of Pies, where they see footage of Jessica meet with Julianne Johnson!

Buck shakes hands with Riv, still talking about buying a thoroughbred; he walks back through the barn when Riv holds a gun to his head. Riv learns he is really Buck Neal, who says footage on his “girl” is worth a lot right now. CJ issues her a warning when Riv sends her the photo, as things are going to get much rougher. They knock on Jules’ door, who slams it in their face; Maya tells CJ it is time to do some digging.

While looking at the footage Buck obtained, Ezra feels Maya should have just started on the farm; but has no second thoughts on what they are doing.

Jules calls Sevvy demanding to know why Maya Travis was just knocking at her door. He promises to find out, but hangs up when he sees that Gabe went to Star Johnson’s (Chasten Harmon) place; not even taking Sevvy’s call.

The legal team is in the middle of a meeting when Wiest walks in, wanting to know if Maya and Matthew are lovers, showing them the expose on the news. Both adamantly deny have any involvement with each other, but Loni shows the link and there is no denying the people in bed look extremely similar to Maya and Michael. Maya calls Riv, who said he didn’t watch the video because whatever she did is in her past. He reminds her that he loves her and has her back no matter what. Michael says Effy (Daniella Alonso) is fine. The tech team calls it a “deep fake” and are becoming more and more common. He has to go prepare a statement over the scandalous news.

Gabe wants Star to tell him the truth about their dad, Sevvy. She reveals that he used to hit her mom but Gabe isn’t sure if he did with his mom as he was very young; both feel guilty about introducing Jessica to Sevvy. A very drunk Gabe says he couldn’t have known but he helped him; that is all Star gets out of him before he passes out.

Mayor Stephanie Russo (Constance Marie) walks into Wiest’s office, saying they need to talk about Maya Travis’ tape which is everywhere. She feels Maya’s credibility is shot and he has to fire her. He insists Maya hasn’t done anything wrong but she wants to make one up and let her go. She casually mentions that she thinks Matthew Collier is planning to put his hat in the ring for elections, causing Wiest to pause.

Sevvy meets with Ezra, informing him that Maya showed up at Jules’ house. He tries to reassure him that things are about to get better. Together they sit down with Matthew holding a press conference about the deep fake video that has popped up in the media. In the midst of the conference, a message is sent to the tabloids, making it seem like Matthew and Maya met at a hotel approximately a year earlier. The mixed tape is completely fake but the photos are real. At this point, Ezra tells Sevvy if they are able to cast reasonable doubt there really is no case.

Maya insists she was there for a horse conference but she didn’t see Matthew. West admits he was 100% on her coming back but he was a bit naive. She has more baggage than LAX and the office cannot handle it. Matthew barges in, saying Maya Travis is the only one who can take down Sevvy Johnson; Wiest tell Matthew the decision has been made and they could quit in solidarity if they choose.

Maya and Matthew were apparently in Seattle at the same time, or at least he thought he saw her. She wishes she had said goodbye, but Matthew thinks he can convince them to keep Maya on; if she is willing to stay.

Ezra runs into Loni, who feels he is disgusting. When pressed, Loni blurts out that they have footage of Julianne meeting with Jessica the night before she was murdered. They don’t know what the meeting was about as Julianne stone-walled them. Ezra leaves, pleased with what he learns.

Star confronts Gabe about what he said in his drunkard stupor and he reveals the night they learned the cops were coming, he took a bag for their dad and buried; he has no idea what is in the bag but Star says they need to go find out.

Sevvy sits in his home theater when his phone vibrates, informing him that Gabe is on the move. Ezra has drinks with Jules; where she admits Maya was there but she has no idea until he mentions the House of Pies. She admits that she met with Jessica there a few times on how to co-parent the children and didn’t reveal it because she didn’t want to be involved in the trial. He advises her to make sure her alibi holds up when the cops discover this new evidence and she was the last one to see Jessica alive.

Maya is all set for her interview on the Southland morning show; hosted by Effy Collier. Effy jumping right in it about being busy being a prosecutor but also sleeping with her husband. Maya thanks her for allowing her to set the record straight and all this stuff is from a cheap Lifetime movie. She admits had they ran into each other it would have been great to catch up as when they were doing the first trial; her and Matthew were in the trenches together and people love to assume when a man and woman work together they automatically are having an affair. Maya brings out how these rumors are so sexist. The trial is a battle and she is coming out swinging. She will smile when they arrest Sevvy and it will be a real smile.

Ezra is not impressed with how Maya was able to turn it around and fires his IT guy. Riv comes off the elevator and sucker punches Ezra in the face before quickly leaving. His staff tells Ezra he had that one coming. After the interview, Effy tells Maya that she knows her and Matthew spent the night together and it will never happen again.

Madam Mayor calls Wiest saying they should not fire Maya, so he calls to get Maya on the phone. Star and Gabe arrive at the campground where they used to go as kids and he shows her the spot. He digs into the ground and is able to retrieve that bag. The siblings look at each other as inside the bag are photos of Jessica, men’s running shoes covered in sand; they feel they need to take it to the police but Sevvy shows up and asks them not to.

Sevvy insists this is not what they think, as the family is not a lie and their love for each other is not a lie. Gabe feels he can’t trust his memories any more than he can trust his dad. Sevvy threatens him that if he doesn’t give him the bag he will regret it. He attacks Gabe, but Star steals the bag as Gabe whacks him over the head with a shovel. Gabe is devastated that Star poured fuel on the bag and burned all the evidence; saying that is her dad and couldn’t do it.

Maya returns home and finds Jules at her doorstep while Loni mocks Ezra about his black eye, feeling he deserved it. Loni reveals that she knows about his gambling addiction and his law firm is on the brink of bankruptcy. What will Sevvy do when he learns it is his money that is only keeping the doors open? Loni tells him that this is over and she is out!!

Jules wants everything she said off the record; if she is put on the stand she will deny speaking to her. Julianne and Jessica have been meeting for months, and Sevvy would never change as he abused both of them. She says Jessica was all set to move out, until the night before her murder because she believed Sevvy changed. She accuses Jules of being jealous and wanting to get rid of her. She is not saying Sevvy killed her and never will.

When Maya demands the real reason, Jules reveals that Ezra came to see her about her last meal with Jessica and now she knows they are looking for a fall guy and she has no intention of it being her. She quickly leaves the house as Maya smiles, seeing Riv getting dropped off at her place. He reminds her that she never needs to explain and he stopped by Ezra’s house and punched him. Maya rushes over Julianne’s car, learning that Ezra knew about the dinner meeting because Maya had it on tape.

Maya returns to her office, telling Matthew they have a mole in their office and until they find out who it is; they are to remain on lock down causing Loni to fret.
