“Tainted Love” is one way of describing Letty & Javier’s relationship in TNT’s breakout hit Good Behavior. The classic song teases season two which promises to be as action filled as the first. Behavior is the story of Letty (Downton Abbey’s Michelle Dockery), a con artist whose life has been a series of bad decisions, drug use and petty crimes leading to losing custody of her son Jacob (Nyles Steele). While breaking into hotel rooms to steal liquor, Letty over hears hit man Javier (Juan Diego Botto) contracting to kill a man’s wife. Letty sets out to stop the murder putting her on a collision course with the charming killer, including a game of cat and mouse that leads to a dangerous and seductive relationship. Season one ends with Letty regaining custody of Jacob after turning in, killer for hire, Javier. Letty helps Javier escape, the three drive off into the sunset to live happily ever after.
Season two picks up shortly after, with Letty having patched things up with her mother, Javier, and regaining custody of her son. The trio disappear, set up house and new identities. Hilarity ensues as normalcy continues to elude them. They discover that normality requires compromises, secrets and lies as something more dangerous than the FBI catches up with them. The past!
“Good Behavior” airs on Sundays on TNT.
