Sarah Michelle Gellar of Buffy the Vampire Slayer notoriety is Bridget Kelly, a recovering drug addict and former stripper who witnessed a gruesome Mafia-style killing.  After testifying against the mobsters in court, Kelly was a marked woman; to escape her killers she fled to New York City, hoping to start life anew.

In New York Bridget reunited with her affluent identical twin sister, Siobhan Martin (also portrayed by Gellar).  When a freak accident resulted in Siobhan's (supposed) death, Bridget decided to adopt her sister's identity and all it entails.  That includes maintaining relations with her sister's husband, Andrew Martin (Ioan Gruffudd) a shady hedge fund manager.

Kelly is able to temporarily evade her assassins, but Siobhan's seemingly picturesque life includes dark secrets.  Best friend Gemma (Tara Summers) is oblivious to Siobhan's affair with her husband, writer Henry Butler (Kristoffer Polaha) and Bridget struggles to preserve the multilayered facade.  Meanwhile FBI agent Victor Machado (Nestor Carbonell) investigates Kelly's disappearance from an uncomfortably close distance.

Throughout these events Bridget seeks a confidant, and finds him while attending drug rehab.  Malcolm Ward (Mike Colter) is initially the only individual aware of Kelly's dual persona, and his closeness to Bridget eventually results in a violent kidnapping.
