Here’s the official synopsis: 

After his cousin, Lanie Cooper (Simone Missick, “All Rise”), commits suicide, journalist Stewart Cooper (Dorian Missick, “Luke Cage”) begins to unravel a web of shaming, lies, and secrets. Following the leads, he discovers the involvement of the police, his cousin’s ex, and the man she had an affair with – her church pastor, Kenneth Little (Michael Beach, Aquaman). Driven by his own emotional turmoil, he turns the tables on them all to avenge his cousin’s demise.

This isn’t the first time we get to see the couple, who have been married for eight years, sharing the screen. 

When All Rise became the first TV show to debut an episode that was shot entirely remotely during the COVID-19 crisis, Dorian stepped in to help his wife pull off the seemingly impossible task.

“My husband is an actor and in this episode, he’s playing a version of himself. He’s playing a DJ which he also does in real life. He’s a phenomenal DJ and he has been doing IG Live sets raising money for essential workers and keeping people motivated. We get to see him as DJ Tailwind, the omnipresent narrator through the episode. For him to be able to do it on the show was really great,” she told theGrio at the time.
