“As on-screen threats against the teen murder witness intensify, could Rusty’s days come to an end on the TNT drama’s August 19 summer finale?
“Rusty is in a lot of jeopardy,” confirms executive producer James Duff. “There’s a major turn in his story as we kick it up a notch in terms of what this boy must suffer.
