Following three months of hiatus since the show aired its last episode in January, the CBS legal drama Shark returns tonight with the much-awaited episode "Bar Fight."  For the remaining episodes of the second season, Shark will once again shift to a new timeslot.  Effective tonight, the network will be moving the series to Tuesdays at 9pm, which also applies for its next three broadcasts.

When we last saw Shark, Sebastian Stark (James Woods) saw a dark secret surface after a bullet with his name on it killed friend and former law partner Paul Faber (Joe Spano).  In attempt to put the man responsible behind bars, Stark confessed to conniving in the cover-up of a murder 12 years ago.  The question is will he lose his license for testifying?

Warning: May contain spoilers.

On tonight's episode, Stark goes in front of the panel to determine if he will face a formal disbarment hearing and learns that indeed he will.  He pleads mercy on the court after admitting his wrongdoings, much to Julie's (Danielle Panabaker) dismay.  In attempt to redeem himself, Stark builds a case against an underworld kingpin as part of a covert deal initiated by the State Attorney General's office. But things take an unexpected turn when Stark gets a letter form the Attorney General that is in support of Stark's disbarment rather than his reinstatement.

Joining the main ensemble in tonight's installment is Paula Marshall, actress who is credited for shows like Nip/Tuck and Out of Practice.  She'll be gracing the series in a recurring role as a prosecutor working with Stark.

Jonathan Banks will also be reprising his role as a former client of Sebastian's whom he recently convicted for murder by admitting his own role in covering up the 1996 slaying.

Shark also stars Jeri Ryan, Henry Simmons, Sophina Brown, Sarah Carter, and Kevin Alejandro.
