Preview: George Chuvalo delivers knockout punch in Private Eyes’ return

When we last left Shade and Angie, things had gotten a little weird with their personal relationship. As a matter of fact, Angie realized she had feelings for her partner and drove over to Shade’s house to tell him that. Unfortunately, just before she knocked on his front door, she spotted Mel and Shade getting intimate. Angie turned to Ken for solace.

After waiting close to a year for Private Eyes to return with new episodes on Sunday at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Global, where are Shade and Angie? Solving crimes of course! Here’s what Global’s episode synopsis says regarding “Kissing the Canvas.”

After being hired by a boxer to prove a fight was fixed, Shade’s sucker-punched when he meets the boxer’s manager: none other than his ex-manager who made off with all of Shade’s money! Angie brings in her mother Nora as a gambling advisor to help crack the case, hopefully before their client gets the knockout of her life.

And we’ve got more tidbits after watching a screener, written by James Thorpe and directed by James Genn:

Who is back for the second half of Season 2?
Zoe (Samantha Wan) and Detective Mazhari (Ennis Esmer) return, along with Jules (Jordyn Negri), Don (Barry Flatman), Becca (Nicole DeBoer), Mel (Bree Williamson) and Dr. Ken (Mark Ghanimé).

George Chuvalo guest-stars in Sunday’s instalment
The five-time Canadian heavyweight boxing champ who took Muhammad Ali the distance twice in the ring appears as himself.

A former Call Me Fitz co-star stops by
Peter MacNeill, a.k.a. Ken Fitzpatrick, shows up to play Shade’s old manager Murray Clavin. And Shade isn’t happy to see him. Also appearing in guest roles this week are Conrad Coates and Tony Nappo. Workin’ Moms Mimi Kuzyk reprises her gig as Angie’s mom, Nora.

Zoe and Maz are back at it …
… and quickly threatening for cutest/most awkward couple on primetime TV.

Private Eyes airs Sundays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Global.
