Johnny goes undercover to stop a gang war; Jakes and Charlie set out to take over Germaine’s business; and Mike begins to piece together Briggs’ plan.
Think it’s possible to sum up the first two seasons of USA Network’s “Graceland” in thirty seconds or less? Co-stars Aaron Tveit and Daniel Sunjata were given the challenge by Entertainment Weekly; and although a lot was glossed over, they did a fairly good job at highlighting their characters’ journeys. Check out Aaron’s solo 30-second take above, and Daniel’s below the cut along with their combined summary.
With a newfound sense of sobriety, Mike also has clear eyes — and that means observing a scheme that Briggs may or may not be up to. Of course, that inherent distrust did have its consequences, when Paige was ultimately forced to, well, use force to save herself. Could it have all been avoided if Briggs had told the truth? What about Mike and Johnny upholding their part of the plan, even if they were unaware on their involvement? In a job where “their lies are their lives,” maybe it’s best if the Graceland team started telling each other the truth to accomplish their goals… but will we see them working together once again?
Ari rises through the ranks of the Armenian mob; Briggs dodges new suspicions from his housemates; and Charlie and Jakes are one step closer to taking down Germaine.
After a prolonged downward spiral following his deathbed experience, Mike Warren finally hit his bottom in the eighth episode of “Graceland” S3. All it took was getting captured by a couple of meth heads, accidentally shooting a colleague, stealing said colleague’s painkillers, and some perfectly placed, well-timed flyers for a rehab center featuring – what else? – the red birds Mike has been looking for all season. (It also involved incredible acting by Aaron Tveit, who adlibbed much of the detox scene.) Will the sobriety hold, or will Mike fall into another vice? By the end of the episode, it seems he may already have something else to obsess over….
Mike questions Briggs’ motivations in the Sarkissian case; and Charlie devises a new plan to catch Germaine.
Once again, in this week’s episode of “Graceland,” the housemates banded together for a common cause; only this time, it involved an intervention of their own agent. Let’s just say that Mike wasn’t exactly keen on his coworkers (and, arguably, family) confronting him about his drug usage — but, at the very least, Charlie was able to break through to him. Will her encouragement stick with Mike? How much further must he fall before he’s able to pick himself back up? (Speaking of Charlie, Vanessa Ferlito – along with Aaron Tveit – delivered some beautiful acting in this ep.) HD screen caps from the episode – entitled “Bon Voyage” – have been added to the gallery.
As Charlie and Jakes close in on Germaine, Mike’s drug addiction reaches a breaking point when he and Gusti are caught in a dangerous situation.
While planning a “shakedown” of Gusti in “Graceland” S3E06 episode, “Sidewinder,” Mike ran into a little trouble himself when he started feeling (shall we say) deprived. By his side, Johnny also made the discovery that Gusti’s wife also suffers from addiction — a detail that Mike took into his own hands. Over 500 HD screen caps from the episode have been added to the gallery.
Plans take a turn for the worse when Charlie attempts to pull Amber from Florida; and in an effort to aid Briggs, Paige sets up a bust to pull the plug on the Sarkissian organization. However, things are not always as they seem.
