Exclusive Mysteries of Laura Sneak Peek: Meet Laura's No-Nonsense New Boss

Callie Thorne is going to shake things up!

Liz Raftery

There's going to be some interesting office politics on Season 2 of The Mysteries of Laura.

Callie Thorne (Rescue Me) joins the cast in a recurring role as Captain Nancy Santiani, the no-nonsense new boss of the 2nd Precinct. Though she, like Laura (Debra Messing) is a single mom, they don't exactly bond off the bat.

And already, Santiani's new role also isn't sitting well with Jake (Josh Lucas), who took a demotion last season and is now Laura's partner - something that's sure to make Laura's love triangle with Jake and Tony (Neal Bledsoe) even more complicated. But Jake's position might not last for long, based on a conversation he has with Santiani, who's his new boss as well, in the Season 2 premiere.

Check out the exclusive clip below to see their exchange:

Mysteries of Laura returns Wednesday, Sept. 23 at 8/7c on NBC.
