In the one-minute teaser for the upcoming second season, things in the Chicago lawyer circuit aren't looking too good as attorneys are being targeted by unhappy clients and begin dying under suspicious circumstances -- and worst yet, sometimes in cold blood.
"I don't know what's going on in the world anymore," Diane Lockhart (Christine Baranski) says, as she struggles to make sense of it all. "It feels like death is everywhere."
Sure enough, it's about to get worse for Diane and company, many of whom have -- as the trailer suggests -- become more and more conscientious of their surroundings, increasingly nervous about their clients and wary of their safety.
But the race against time to stop the anti-lawyer sentiment reaches a boiling point: Marissa Gold (Sarah Steele) opens up an envelope with a typed-out letter and a threat, "Kill All Lawyers," in blood-red letters and a mysterious white-powdered substance that pours down her lap and into Maia Rindell's (Rose Leslie) hands.
