ABC's BODY OF PROOF Season Three Premieres Today
Hold on to your hats! ABC's Body Of Proof enters its third season today, February 5, 2013 10:00-11:00 p.m., ET,, creatively revamped to deliver even more exciting episodes and with two new cast members complementing the ever brilliant, always driven neurosurgeon-turned-Medical-Examiner Dr. Megan Hunt in her quest to find justice for the dead and prevent harm to the living.
Twenty years ago Megan had her heart broken. Not that she would ever admit it. As a surgical resident in New York City, she stitched up a wounded young cop named Tommy Sullivan who had been shot during a drug bust, and a passionate love affair ensued. It ended just as tempestuously when he cheated on her. Reeling from this betrayal, Megan returned to Philadelphia, vowing never to be hurt again. She Built a highly successful career and an equally successful marriage... Or so she thought. She never appreciated how the demands of her career were taking a toll on her personal life until her husband divorced her and she lost custody of their then 7-year-old daughter, Lacey. Adding to this trauma, Megan then suffered a car accident that left her with a condition called paresthesia, characterized by random attacks of numbness and cramping of her hands. Tragically this condition failed to manifest itself until Megan's first trip back to the operating room; she lost control of her instruments and her patient died on the table. Megan's life as a neurosurgeon was over.
Two years into her new life as a Medical Examiner, Megan has rechanneled her genius and personal tenacity into solving the medical mysteries of the dead and uncovering who was responsible and why. Along the way she has tried to repair some of the emotional damage she caused to her daughter and to others close to her. She may never be done, but she has arrived at a place and a state of relative peace. And then Tommy Sullivan walks back into her life.
After a long career in New York City Detective, Tommy Sullivan has relocated to Philadelphia, where he and his new partner, Detective Adam Lucas, have drawn the unenviable job of teaming with Megan to solve homicide cases. Needless to say Megan is stunned by Tommy's reappearance, wants nothing to do him, and immediately suspects he has somehow engineered his new post to rekindle their relationship. Is she right? Does he have a prayer? Their personal history will uncomfortably animate every investigation they're forced to work on together.
Starting with an action-packed two-part episode, Season Three will grab audiences with higher stakes and bigger thrills and chills, as Megan, Tommy and their respective colleagues work to chase down killers before they kill again. And with each passing case, as the tension between Megan and Tommy evolves into mutual respect and even hints at their old personal attraction, Megan will start to wonder if she should risk opening herself up to this man again. The answer will come as they tackle the biggest case of Megan's career -- indeed the biggest mystery of Megan's entire life: Did her father really commit suicide, or was he murdered?
