The government is watching you. Cameras are everywhere. “Reasonable Doubt” opened with Vanessa Watkins who used to be a former prosecuting attorney for New York. Her husband Jeremy had been missing at sea & Vanessa is arrested for his murder. She claims that she found Jeremy's blood on the deck of their boat & saw his body floating in the water.
The NYPD had not yet recovered Jeremy's body from the sea. Vanessa sneaks out of the police station & goes on the run. John & Harold want to get to her before the police do even though they believe she might be guilty.
Detective Joss Carter & her partner go on the search for Vanessa. She was last seen on camera purchasing a bus ticket to get out of town. She looks straight at the camera & steals the cell phone of an elderly male. John & Samantha follow Vanessa to a man named Reginald whom she prosecuted & sent to jail.
Carter worked with Vanessa a few years before & tells Harold that detective Cameron wants her arrested badly. John & Samantha leave the premises as the police chase Vanessa up to the roof of a building. Carter gets to her first & Vanessa jumps over the edge dropping 300 feet. She disappears again. Jeremy owed the mob $5 million dollars.
Carter & John always look over their shoulders because cameras watch them on every street corner. They question if detective Cameron is “HR” who are the ruthless NYPD bosses connected with the mob. Last year, “HR” tried to frame detective Fusco into working for them.
Samantha goes undercover in a book club that is arranged by Vanessa's best friend Nicole. It turns out she was having an affair with Jeremy. John finds Vanessa & figures out that she tried to framed another man for killing Jeremy.
Is Vanessa the real victim? Was she framed for killing her husband Jeremy? Why was Jeremy having an affair with Vanessa's best friend? How did $20 million dollars disappear from Jeremy's bank account?
