TV show description:
This crime thriller explores the tensions on the U.S. – Mexico border. When an American judge known for her anti-immigration views is found dead on the bridge that connects El Paso and Juarez, Sonya Cross (Diane Kruger) from the El Paso Police Department must work with her Mexican counterpart from Chihuahua State Police, Marco Ruiz (Demian Bichir). Their goal is to catch a serial killer operating on both sides of the border.
Marco understands the slippery politics of Mexican law enforcement. While his police force slowly succumbs to the pressures and demands of the cartel, he’s one of the last good men in the department. He’s charming, but also cunning as he will do whatever it takes to get what he needs.
This doesn’t sit well with Sonya, who has Asperger’s and strictly follows rules — as well as protocol. Her candid and off-putting personality fuels an unforgiving drive for truth.
The case quickly pulls them both into a string of murders on the border, a scene already consumed by illegal immigration, drug trafficking, violence and prostitution.
Episode #26 — Jubilex
Marco’s loyalty is put to the ultimate test while Sonya attempts to tie up loose ends. Eleanor yearns for closure. Frye and Adriana land an insider source.
First aired: October 1, 2014.
