Graceland - 1.06 - Hair of the Dog - Preview

If last episode was the set-up, this episode is the payoff in several areas. As Mike goes farther under with Bello, Charlie tries to recover from shooting up. Unfortunately she's also called in by her boss to answer questions about the Quinn fiasco. Still shaky and obviously coming down from a high, Briggs tells her that the FBI will figure it out if she goes. Charlie counters that if she skips it, the Bureau will order a drug test so she's screwed either way. Desperate to save her job, Charlie resorts to a dangerous game.

She's not the only one. Mike convinces Bello to rip off one of the most treacherous cartels by stealing $20 million in drugs. Enlisting Johnny's help because of his Navy experience, Mike creates a brilliant plan to tie both of his missions together with the hope of returning to D.C. soon. Of course when Bello changes the plan, Mike is forced to make another hard decision which could end up breaking his cover and leaves a life in danger.

Graceland has a strange ebb and flow with pacing which makes it challenging to know what to expect from one week to another. It excels most in fast-paced, tension-filled episodes where the stakes are high. Luckily, this is such an episode, so much so that it vies with Pizza Box as my favorite episode so far. While the dramatic scenes pack the biggest punch, there's a good mix of additional character background and the FBI's investigation of Briggs intensifies. Paige has almost nothing to do and Jakes is still MIA, but the focus on Johnny really works well. I also like the continuity between the events of last week and Abby remains a positive addition, although I am still suspicious of her. All in all, this is a very successful episode, a sample of Graceland at its best so far.

About The SpoilerTV Daily Newsreel

Every day 100's of items are submitted to us and we don't always have the time to make separate posts for the news and/or there is so much that it would quickly push all other items off the homepage.

So a result we've come up with the idea of the Newsreel, which will feature smaller shows and news items as they happen.

There will be a new Newsreel each day, and as news is added we will update the post and and push it back to the top of the site so that you can see that new items have been added. A tweet of the item will also be sent to our @SpoilerTV account.

New Items will be listed at the top of the article.

This will allow us to provide more news on more shows in a much more timely fashion
About Movie News Roundup

Rather that creating lots of new posts as new info is released and fragmenting the commentary, we thought it would be a good idea for the upcoming major movies to create a single post for each major movies that will collate all the info as it's posted.

New items will be added to the top of the list as well as the post being re-posted back to the top of the homepage when a new item is added. We will additionally send out a fresh tweet alerting you of the new information.

This will allow you to bookmark this page so that you can return to it whenever you like. It will also help consolidate all the discussion on this movie in a central place and make it less likely that you'll miss some key information.
