Luke Roberts (Black Sails) is back as hostage negotiator Eric Beaumont, and this time, it’s extremely personal. Season 2 starts with a bang as Eric is forced to complete three ransom demands to save his daughter after she’s kidnapped. Who’s responsible? Fans of season 1 can probably already guess. That’s right, Damian Delaine (24’s Carlo Rota) is back with a vengeance!
