The first episode of the second season was about a woman who was brutally murdered, in the second episode, a wealthy socialite was the victim, and in the third episode, in a storm drain, the police finds the remains of the woman.
In the final episode of Grace Season 2, not one but three bodies are discovered, and this gives an unexpected twist to the show. Also, in the last episode, Grace is seen with his love interest, Cleo. However, this love relationship can be in trouble as he receives a call that states that his wife, who disappeared ten years ago, might still be alive.
If Grace Season 3 follows the order of the books, the upcoming season might feature two brutal rapes.
