Barry Berkman, a Marine turned hitman, is sent by his handler, Monroe Fuches, to Los Angeles to perform a hit for Chechen mob boss Goran Pazar, who wants him to kill Ryan Madison, an aspiring actor having an affair with Goran’s wife. Barry tracks the target to an acting class taught by famed coach and author Gene Cousineau. Ryan convinces Barry to perform a scene with him and, despite how poorly it goes, invites him to a bar with the other students where Barry becomes smitten with actress Sally Reed. Barry drives a drunk Ryan home and finds Gene, who tells Barry that he is a terrible actor. An impassioned Barry tells Gene that he is a hitman but wants a different life. Gene, believing the confession is an improvised performance, is impressed enough to give Barry another shot at his class. Barry decides to follow through on Ryan's hit, only to find Ryan already dead and the Chechens prepared to shoot him, too. Barry guns them down and flees the scene. At a nearby diner, he learns the waitress is an actress, and tells her he is also an actor.
22"Chapter Two: Use It"Bill HaderAlec Berg & Bill HaderApril 1, 2018 (2018-04-01)0.641[7]
LAPD detectives investigate the murders of Ryan and the mobster and discover the mobsters’ lipstick camera, only to be repeatedly stumped at how it works. Barry and Fuches are kidnapped by the Chechens, and Fuches is tortured via tooth-filing until Barry reluctantly agrees to carry out one last hit on an informant. Gene informs his class that Ryan has been murdered. Gene's students plan an on-stage memorial service for Ryan, where all members will perform a piece in his honor. Sally asks Barry to perform a scene from Doubt, the last piece she and Ryan performed together in the class. At the service, Gene has Ryan's father show up, who delivers an impassioned speech. The speech causes Barry significant distress because he has never before seen the grief and pain he has inflicted on people who knew Barry's victims. At the last minute Barry declines to perform the Doubt piece because he does not like its theme on pedophilia. Barry walks Sally home at which time she expresses her desire to have sex with him. To Sally's surprise Barry declines her advances and rushes off. From afar, a Chechen takes photos of Sally.

Detectives Moss and Loach learn of Ryan Madison's connection to Pazar and question Gene and his students. Barry helps Sally prepare for an audition, where Sally learns the lead actress is a former friend she had worked with on a failed TV series. Sally is devastated by the other actress' success and cries during her audition. Barry prepares to take out Paco but is interrupted by a phone call from Sally, who vents about her problems and begs him to come over. Barry misses his chance to kill Paco with a sniper rifle, and is forced to break into his house and strangle him to death. Barry then goes to Sally's house, where they have sex and Barry daydreams about a happy life with her.

Sally prepares for an audition with her agent; she rejects his sexual advances, and he claims he was only joking. At the audition, Sally is told by the casting assistant that her agent does not represent her and is sent home; devastated, Sally cries in her car. Detective Moss meets with Gene at a restaurant, expecting pertinent information about the case; realizing it is actually a date, she stays anyway. Police techs manage to unlock the lipstick camera, revealing footage of a tall, unrecognizable figure who, unbeknownst to them, is Barry. At a party, Barry presents Sally with a new laptop as a gift, but she is offended by the gesture. Barry invites Chris, who brings two other rowdy Marines, Vaughn and Taylor. Barry sees Sally flirting with another man and tells him to back off, angering Sally. Taylor finds Barry's intel on the stash house raid, and tells Barry he wants in.
55"Chapter Five: Do Your Job"Hiro MuraiBen SmithApril 22, 2018 (2018-04-22)0.643[10]
Sally suggests to Barry that they should take a break from each other. Detective Moss returns to the acting class and re-interviews three men, including Barry, who could match the photo of the tall, unrecognizable figure from the lipstick camera. Barry provides an alibi with the help of Fuches, who tells him to kill Taylor once the raid is done; Barry reluctantly agrees. The acting class discusses the morality of Macbeth and Barry tells the class, "I've killed people. I should just go blow my brains out?" referring to his time as a Marine. Gene replies, "If you kill outside of war, you're a fucking psycho. Then you're irredeemable." That night, Barry and Taylor successfully raid the stash house, killing several men, with Taylor doing most of the killing as well as saving Barry's life. The next morning, Barry meets with Fuches, who is happy to see Barry alive. Taylor soon joins, revealing Barry did not follow Fuches' advice.

After spending the night with Gene, Detective Moss tells him their relationship crosses a line, as she is investigating his class. At Taylor's apartment, Barry tells him he could take over Barry’s job and work for Fuches, but Taylor tells Barry he should just kill Fuches. Without Barry’s knowledge, Taylor stuffs money stolen from the stash house into Barry’s backpack. At acting class, Barry finds the money and hides it in the bathroom ceiling. Vacha arrives at the class and follows Sally to her car, but bumps into Moss. Vacha runs and Moss eventually kills him in a shootout. Moss shows other officers the cash hidden in the bathroom.

77"Chapter Seven: Loud, Fast, and Keep Going"Alec BergLiz SarnoffMay 6, 2018 (2018-05-06)0.636[12]
Barry and Chris, the only survivors, escape the airfield and return to Los Angeles. Going immediately to rehearsal, Barry gives poor line delivery and is berated by Sally and Gene. The Chechens receive a call from their Bolivian assassination target, Cristobal Sifuentes, who says that there was no need for violence as he would have gladly shared the stash house with them, and declares war on the Chechens. Pazar, furious with Fuches and believing Barry dead, orders NoHo Hank to kill Fuches. Moss learns that there were Marines involved with the hit on the Bolivians and realizes that Barry is her mystery suspect, despite coincidental evidence that convinces the police otherwise. Chris, visibly shaken, tells Barry that he intends to go to the police to clear his conscience. With no other options, Barry kills Chris and begins to suffer an emotional breakdown. Arriving late to the class’ Shakespeare night, Barry delivers his single line with such emotional intensity that the audience becomes captivated and Sally gets a confidence boost.
88"Chapter Eight: Know Your Truth"Alec BergAlec Berg & Bill HaderMay 13, 2018 (2018-05-13)0.548[13]

NoHo alerts Barry, who promptly kills Pazar and his gang, and forces Fuches out of Los Angeles. NoHo takes over leadership of the Chechens and organizes with the Bolivians. The LAPD discover Barry's massacre and conclude the Bolivians were responsible, closing the case and posthumously staining Ryan's reputation. Barry rejoins the acting class, and starts a relationship with Sally. A few weeks later, Gene invites Barry, Sally and Moss to his country home, where Moss becomes suspicious of Barry after learning he goes by his stage name "Barry Block". Her suspicion is further propelled when Gene tells Moss of the monologue Barry gave about being a hitman - and confirmed when she discovers a link between Barry, Chris, and Taylor on Facebook. Barry begs her not to pursue things further. When she refuses, Barry retrieves a hidden gun and shots ring out; it is unclear whether Moss survived. Barry returns to the still-sleeping Sally, and declares, yet again, that his criminal life is over.

NoHo blames the Burmese gang leader, leading the family to order NoHo to execute her. Upon visiting Barry, NoHo is spurned by Barry at first, but later tells Barry that he has no choice but to kill the gang leader or everything Barry has built in his new life will be destroyed. Meanwhile, Fuches is arrested in Cleveland after a botched job and his DNA samples raise a red flag to the LAPD who link him with the crime scene at Pazar's murder.
