Grace (Mae Martin), however, wasn't alone in sporting a long-blonde wig and trench coat. Dot (Cheryl Hines), Cassie’s boss at the CIA was responsible for the whole Cassie-framing scheme. Did you notice how Cassie's framing required someone with sufficient clearance to allow her to access the CIA files she needed? This little detail is now clear.
Grace ended her life after being trapped on a ferriswheel with Cassie in 'No Exit. Dot attempted to bring Cassie into the office after Cassie had given her police statement. After Cassie started panicking, Dot changed her mind and said she would let Cassie clean her apartment. Sounds nice, right? Wrong. Dot had Cassie's desire for a shower in mind and used this to guide Cassie to an area that was not manned by agents.

Cassie realized that Dot wore the same perfume as the View-Master and she began to piece the pieces together. It was too late. Cassie attempted to flee, but Dot held her hostage and confessed to the plan. Dot was selling CIA secrets since years. This side hustle had caused a lot to be lost. Dot was getting caught up in her crimes and needed a girl to fall for them, particularly one who was also a blonde CIA agents. Dot had just seconds to shoot Cassie, when Cassie's only move was to set off her apartment's alarm. Dot was distracted and put her gun down. Cassie ran straight into Dot's arms.
Dot wanted to be apprehended, but instead of doing so, the agents grabbed Dot's boss. That was Benjamin McRae's great move. Benjamin realized Dot was breaking protocol when he saw it. He then discovered who Dot really was. He sent the agents. Cassie was the one who saved the agency from more chaos and came out on top.
Yes, they did. They were both stabbed but were able leave the hospital with only minor injuries.

Megan Perez (Rosie Perez), was able, thanks to Cassie to make a deal to Shane Matthews (Griffin Matthews). Megan was placed under witness protection along with her family in exchange for sharing everything she knew to the CIA. Megan and her family are with her, although we don't know where she is. She may still be able repair the damage she did to her family's reputation after having an affair with Margaret Cho and selling North Korean government secrets.
You would think that figuring out her doppelgänger situation and taking down a treacherous agent would be end-of-episode material. You would be mistaken. Cassie ran from Dot and called her brother Davey (T.R. Knight) husband. What is the new situation? Davey was never able to board the plane as he claimed and is now missing.
Cassie was only concerned about Davey's location for a short time before Jenny, the AA podcaster (Jessie Ennis), intervened to save the day. Jenny informed Cassie that Davey stopped by her home to bid farewell. He began acting strangely before he could go.
The high-flying heroine ran to another woman's home only to be caught in another woman’s trap. Remember Buckley (Colin Woodell), aka Feliks? He stalked Cassie through Season 1, and nearly killed her in the final. After his arrest, he began a relationship to Jenny who was looking for hot prison girls. Is that not a little bit crazy? That's Jenny. Feliks helped Jenny become obsessed with Cassie to help her be more like her. Jenny realized that it was easier to kill Cassie the more Jenny learned about her.

Cassie is a leap to face two murderous women within a single day. It did however allow Cassie to face a fundamental truth about her own self. All throughout this season, Cassie has been fighting with herself — literally. Many scenes from her mind palace revolved around Cassie fighting with herself -- literally. Cassie stopped fighting with Jenny while she tried to reach an agreement. Cassie realized she wasn't one of the women she thought she was, but all of them.
Cassie stated, "You're correct about me," in the final, while trying to distract Jenny, as Davey, a newly awakened Davey, crept behind. "I cannot lie anymore. This is me. I am a sad, depressed, alcoholic and narcissistic thrill-seeker. It's not something I like. It's who I fucking AM, okay? It is enough.
For actual growth, you will need points to Cassie. Who also receives points? Davey. Davey. Jenny was listening to Cassie's self-hating monologue while Davey hit Jenny with a pan. They were relieved to learn that the unsettling murderer would almost certainly end up in jail.
Season 2 was a success despite all the close calls. Cassie and Shane attended Annie Zosia Mamet and Max (Deniz Akdeniz), Las Vegas weddings. Cassie managed to maintain her part-time CIA job. Even better, she was able to talk things out with Benjamin. Both decided to not talk about their relationship and instead to be bosses and subordinates. Season 1 was a season that Cassie promised she would make a change. Season 2 is a proof that Cassie has made measurable progress.
