“Fairly Legal” returned for its second season last Friday (March 16) and with it brought a lot of changes for Kate Reid and cohorts. The firm is in financial trouble, there’s a smarmy new partner to deal with, Justin laid a huge confession on Kate and then her boat blew up. Rough week.

The show is back Friday, March 23 with “Start Me Up” and Zap2it has an exclusive sneak peek clip (above), where Lauren is getting a new client – a fashion designer who wants his former employee to adhere to her non-compete agreement. The only problem is, said former employee is a client of Ben Grogan, the new partner at Reed and Reed. Uh oh.

In other news, Kate is asked by Justin to mediate an agreement between the FBI and a local hospital. We imagine working with him will be just aces for Kate.

“Fairly Legal” airs Friday nights at 9 p.m. ET/PT on USA. Be sure to tune in to Character Chatter during this week’s episode – Virginia Williams (Lauren) will be chatting live with fans!
