Good Behavior is a drama series which tells the story of a thief/con artist whose life is always one wrong turn, one bad decision from implosion - which is exactly how she likes it.
Out of prison early for good behavior, Letty Raines is trying to be a better person. But after she overhears a hitman being hired to kill a man's wife, Letty sets out to derail the job while entangling herself in a dangerous relationship.
Javier forces Letty to help carry out his next job by posing as his wife at an upscale resort. Letty befriends the target's wife as instructed, but when she tries to escape with the woman, her plan backfires, digging her into a much deeper hole.
Letty and Javier are in a race against time to tie up all the loose ends of the violent crime Javier committed, each blaming the other for the trouble they're in. Letty's parole officer, Christian, lays down the law: if Letty doesn't show up to her next check-in, he will send her back to prison.
Letty attempts legitimate "good behavior" when she goes back to her hometown to be close to her son, Jacob, and finds a clever workaround for the restraining order that has kept her one-thousand feet away from him. Meanwhile, while trying to protect her friend Tiffany from the truth about her husband, Letty's attempt at being good explodes in her face.
Desperate to escape the mess she inadvertently made in her hometown, Letty Raines rejoins Javier on the road. He's on the way to see his sister Ava, who has information about the mysterious phone calls Javier has been getting from his estranged family. Christian tracks Letty down to arrest her, but Letty turns the tables and pulls Christian into a scheme of her own making.
Letty Raines returns to her hometown armed with a new plan to take custody of her son, Jacob, with Javier's help. But Letty is confronted with the stark realities of motherhood when a day with her son turns into a crisis that could send her back to prison.
Letty and Javier attend the mysterious and explosive reunion of Javier's immediate family. Letty does her best to play the role of Javier's girlfriend while trying to find out as much as she can about Javier's past. But a tragic history unfolds right before her eyes as a newly protective Letty learns Javier's most closely-guarded secret.
Letty Raines reverses roles with her mother when she has to bail Estelle out of jail, raising the question of who is better able to raise Jacob. Meanwhile, Jacob's birth father, Sean, shows up uninvited to a major family event.
Sean's attempt at getting custody of Jacob causes Letty to falter in a weak moment that could drive a permanent wedge between her and Javier. Christian presents Letty with a legitimate opportunity to change her life.
