The Catch has finally premiered and we can't wait to find out what's next for Alice (Mireille Enos) and Ben (Peter Krause) in their high stakes game of cat and mouse. Here is the series premiere recap of Episode 1 "The Pilot" that aired on Thursday, March 24, 2016. In "The Pilot," Alice Vaughan is LA’s top private investigator and the type of woman you don’t want to mess with. Having built Anderson/Vaughan Investigations from the ground up with her best friend and business partner, Valerie Anderson (Rose Rollins), they investigate some of the most elaborate cases around the world, alongside their elite team of private investigators: Danny Yoon (Jay Hayden), a mischievous and irreverent PI who is not afraid to break the law when necessary to solve a case; and their newest member, Sophie Novak (Elvy Yost), who serves as their in-house counsel and brilliant hacker.
Alice is on the top of her game, but when her fiancé, Benjamin Jones, cons her out of millions and disappears, she suddenly becomes the victim and goes on a private mission for payback, stopping at nothing to catch her man. However, she is not the only one chasing Ben. FBI Agent Jules Dao (Jacky Ido) has been following his criminal activity across Europe and now is closer than ever to capturing him and hopes to elicit Alice’s help in taking him down. Meanwhile, the elusive Ben has slipped back into the dangerous and sexy world of international crime with his long-time partners, mastermind Margot Bishop (Sonya Walger) and Reggie Lennox (Alimi Ballard).
