Ray Donovan centers on L.A.’s best professional fixer (Schreiber). It’s up to Ray to make the biggest problems of the city’s celebrities, superstar athletes, and business moguls disappear. In the fifth season, Ray must attend a court-ordered anger management program, following a bar fight. Meanwhile, as Terry (Marsan) and Maureen’s (Buck) wedding looms, Mickey (Voight), Bunchy (Mihok), and Daryll (Hall) get ready for it. Eventually, Ray is drawn deeper into Sam Winslow’s (Sarandon) web.
