Mr Inbetween Plot: What is it about?

Ray shoesmith, the protagonist of the show, is a sleeper hitman or one might say an assassin. His work portfolio ranges from kidnapping, extortion, intimidation till even murder. Ray, however, is not resentful of his career choice. Ray does not enjoy his job but does not even regret what he does. He feels that some people need to understand that they will go six feet under whether they like it or not, and he just makes them realize it through his work.

When not working as a hitman and taking orders from his boss, Ray takes care of his daughter. Among others close to him is his disabled brother and his best friend, Gary. These three are probably the only ones he cares about and trusts them with his life. Ray also has a blooming romance with a medic Ally who sometimes does not understands the sudden fits of anger that Ray faces. Season one was all about ray taking care of his daughter and his disabled brother along with earning a living through his antics.

Unless some drastic change comes, season 2 is expected to be a continuation and will showcase Ray’s dual life and how he balances it.
