Why Is Garrett Tracking Maya Campbell?

In the second season, Garrett’s relationship with Maya comes to light. In the past, Garrett was forced to cut ties with Maya. He is removed from the case in which Maya is working as an informant. As a result, Maya is forced to navigate the threats of the underworld alone and struggles to space from the midst of criminals.
