The second season picks up 24 hours after the storm and Elka's arrest on hiding stolen property. While in jail, Elka reveals that her late husband was involved with a crime family after she recognizes a fellow inmate named Diane. But that wasn't the only revelation coming from Elka, for it turned out that she also had a tryst with Rick, the neighbor and The Plain Dealer columnist who tried to seduce Melanie in the first season. Because of these events, Elka could face more legal problems, prompting her lawyer to suggest that she be declared incompetent so she won't stand trial, which proved to be a disaster because her lawyer became a chick magnet for Melanie, Joy and Victoria. After her fiancee Max broke up with her, he decided to date and marry another woman, but Elka fought back and both Elka and Max became a couple again. However, Max's son is running for political office and Elka mentioned that dating Max could affect his chances because he doesn't want the publicity. Elka has also started drinking as well. Elka was later cleared of all charges, but her romantic problems would take on a lot more problems when Max decided to leave for Florida, resulting in her dating another guy named Fred, who then asked her to marry him. But on the day of the wedding, Elka learned that her dead husband was alive.
