Will Trent Season 2 Episode 2 main cast members

Will Trent Season 2, Episode 2 was full of twists and turns that ended with Will trying to unpack new details about a new character.  

Season 2's debut episode was too much to handle for fans of the series since it tragically ended with Cricket Dawson's death. He became the victim of an explosion at the impound lot under the Georgia Bureau Investigation. 

As a result, Will confronted serial killer James Ulser after he learned that the bombing was connected to criminals who were already in prison. 

Will Trent Season 2, Episode 2 premiered on ABC on February 27.
