Hayes Morrison (Agent Carter‘s Hayley Atwell) is about to carry out a prison break — not with weapons, but with words.

In the first two minutes of the series premiere, the former first daughter, who made headlines for cocaine possession, decides to make a pivotal deal with the drama’s proverbial devil: her rival, Conner Wallace (Eddie Cahill). Conner has a job offer in mind that’ll free her and keep her away from tabloid coverage, one that makes her the leader of a team of lawyers investigating possible wrongful incarcerations. 

Watch the exclusive clip above. Conviction premieres Monday, Oct. 3 at 10 p.m. ET on ABC.
