In 'Insolubilia,' the Lyon residence became a battlefield, with Dot, aka Nadine, cleverly evading another kidnapping attempt. Clever traps and quick thinking led to a violent but stopped home invasion by Gator and his crew.
Among the chaos, Dot's husband Wayne suffers an electrocution, sending him to his hospital and the mess in their home.
Simultaneously, Sheriff Roy Tillman, unaware of Lyon’s plight, faces his own demons and engages in a dangerous fight, resulting in the setting up of a man for the crimes of the mysterious Ole Munch.

“The Tiger” is ready to explore more into the complex relationships and betrayals. With the Lyon residence now a heap of ashes and secrets about to be revealed, Dot may find herself cornered, leading to either risky moves or unexpected alliances.
The aftermath of Wayne's injury could unravel more about Dot's mysterious past, potentially shifting the dynamics of their relationship. Roy Tillman's growing brutality and control over his militia hint at a more menacing approach to strengthening his power.
This could lead to a direct confrontation with the forces slowly encircling him, including the determined FBI agents Meyer and Joaquin. The mysterious Ole Munch, with his unpredictable actions, continues to be an unpredictable factor, possibly aligning with or against any of the main players in unforeseen ways.
