The Glades

THE GLADES “Islandia” Season 3 Episode 9 airs Sunday August 5 9/8C on A&E.

Episode Synopsis: The body of an $80-million Florida state lottery winner is found murdered on a remote island in Islandia, and Jim and Jennifer must unravel a personal vendetta spanning over a decade between the victim and the island’s only resident. Miranda pulls Callie away from her studies to have some fun at a medical sales mixer, but Jim starts to find Callie harder and harder to reach in Atlanta.

Show Summary: It’s Season 3 of the hit A&E original scripted drama series The Glades, starring Matt Passmore, Kiele Sanchez, Carlos Gomez and Michelle Hurd. Passmore stars as Jim Longworth, an attractive and brilliant Chicago homicide detective with a reputation for being difficult. When his captain wrongfully accuses him of sleeping with his wife and shoots him, he is exiled and forced to relocate. He lands in the sleepy, middle-of-nowhere town of Palm Glade, outside of the Florida Everglades, where sunshine and golf are plentiful and crime is seemingly at a minimum.

But Longworth soon finds out this town isn’t quite as idyllic as he originally thought, when murders keep piling up. Each case pulls Longworth off the golf course and reluctantly into his element as one of the sharpest homicide detectives to wear a badge.

Season 3 starts after Callie decides to stay in Palm Glade to be with Jim and their relationship is immediately put to the test when it proves more difficult to find work then she had imagined. Despite their love and support, big decisions weigh on them as they roll up their sleeves to make the day to day business of coming together as a couple work, creating new challenges that will test their commitment.

Meanwhile, the Palm Glade substation gets shaken up when the FDLE sends Jennifer Starke, the beautiful, dynamic FDLE Bureau Chief to evaluate the substation’s track record of success and high rate of arrest, hoping to create a blueprint for the rest of the department. After a series of initial interviews, it becomes clear to Jennifer that their success is due to Longworth’s unorthodox style of investigation.

In order to accomplish her goal, the Bureau Chief decides to take a more hands on approach in her evaluation, creating an interesting tension between the striking Bureau Chief and our lone wolf Detective Longworth.
