According to Entertainment Weekly, Marsh will debut in the second season’s fifth episode. He's a charming Brit that formerly ran scams with Lightman back in the day; now he's atop the FBI and Scotland Yard watch lists.

After a two decade-long estrangement, Ray - who once went to prison in order to take the fall for Lightman - returns to collect what he's owed. Cue suspenseful music!
