“The Bridge” Season 2 Premiere Episode 1 “Yankee” was aired on July 9, 2014. It was directed by Keith Gordon and written by Elwood Reid.”Yankee” started off with the aftermath of a gruesome massacre inside a family home. Attorney Monte Flagg (Lyle Lovett) found himself in the middle of the crime scene along with severed body parts in a pool of blood. Then Monte saw a mystery woman, who smiled at him with a bloody machete in her hands.
The episode also began with the current status of Marco (Demián Bichir). Marco continued for the death of his son, Guz Ruiz (Carlos Pratts), in the hands of Kevin Hastings/David Tate (Eric Lange). His wife, Alma (Catalina Sandino Moreno), left Marco with his two remaining children after their divorce. Alma and Kevin had their way on taking revenge to Marco: Alma slept with Guz’s murderer, while Kevin/David killed Guz because he blamed him for killing his wife and son.
It seemed that Marco’s new status as the man who cannot lose anything maybe the next target in the crimes. Marco almost got killed when an undentified policeman tried to shoot him during one of their raids. The new Mexican president wanted to lessen the connection to the United States. He acquired Abelardo Pintado (Manuel Uriza) as the new prosecutor to handle corruption in the Mexican police.
On the other hand, Sonya (Diane Kruger) returned to the place where an ailing Jim Dobbs (Brad William Henke) currently resides. She also had the chance to meet Jack Dobbs (Nathan Phillips), Jim’s brother. Sonya still wanted to know the reason why Jim killed her sister, which surprised Jack.
Sonya also took the chance to take their “relationship” to the next level. Unfortunately, their relationship would took a toll on Sonya’s connection with her boss, Hank (Lt. Hank Wade). Sonya was informed by Hank that Eva (Stephanie Sigman) was not safe anymore in the ranch. They discovered the new information when they found a Chihuahua PD officer near the vicinity. Hank took Eva to be taken cared of by Bob (Jon Gries), who owns a women’s shelter in the desert.
Daniel Frye (Matthew Lillard) continued to probe about the death of a woman who hid millions of dollars inside her home. His investigations led him to several family members of the Quintana family. Daniel then shared this information with his Juarez-born colleague, Adriana (Emily Rios). Both Daniel and Adriana also struggled with their personal problems. Adriana couldn’t find his missing sister, while Daniel sought the help of an AA mentor to overcome his drinking problems.
