Graceland spoilers: Mike vs. Briggs; things get scary
Lies, lies and more lies, plus murder, confessions and so much more. We've got teasers and spoilers galore from the next two episodes of Graceland Season 2.
When I was offered the chance to watch the next two episodes of the current season, I jumped at it. The first season of this show blew my mind, but they've already taken Season 2 to another level and I was dying to see what happened next. Here's a taste of what you can expect from "The Head of the Pig" and "Home."
Briggs and Mike
If you've been watching, then you already know that tensions are running high within the family unit known as Graceland. But when Briggs starts to suspect some heinous things about Mike, it sends him gunning for his former protégé. I won't say if Briggs is right or wrong about his suspicions, nor will I say whether or not things get resolved between them. I will, however, promise that this conflict leads to at least two scenes that should leave you gasping in shock.
Briggs and Charlie
These two have been our little lovebirds all season, but you'll soon find out why Charlie suddenly took off and left the house in the middle of the night. There are still some sexy moments and some sweet moments to come between them, but their relationship is far from simple in the next two episodes. Between Charlie's bank job and the stuff that's going on with Briggs and Mike, Charlie will find herself stretched thin. All I can say is that Charlie and Briggs' story has more than a few shocks in it.
Mike and Paige
After watching Mike actually cremate a woman's body and then lie to Paige about her whereabouts, I really didn't think there was anything I could see from them that could be more stunning than that. But there is so much more to come from both of them. If you think Mike has the upper hand, then let's just say you might be in for a little shocker. She's not as easy to fool as Mike might have thought.
Johnny and Lucia
Johnny, Johnny, Johnny. He hasn't been making the best decisions this season, has he? Following Lucia to Mexico was part of his job, but stopping off at his mother's place to protect Lucia was not. He's a guy stuck in that classic struggle of a cop trying to figure out what to do when he falls in love while trying to break into a case. Johnny's journey takes a number of ups and downs, so don't be surprised if he pops back up after you think he's blown his shot to do something right.
You'll notice that I didn't pair Jakes' name with anyone in particular. That's because the poor guy ends up helping everyone. From Johnny in Mexico to Briggs back home, Jakes is the one everyone turns to when they need a hand. What sucks is that Jakes' willingness to help also gets him close to getting in trouble himself.
While there are many individual conflicts within the group, the one that I found most disturbing was the conflict within the "family" itself. Even when someone within the group tries to get them all together like old times, it goes downhill real fast. After what happens in these episodes, I have to wonder if the family dynamics will ever be the same heading towards the finale.
If those teasers have got you on the edge of your seat in anticipation, be sure to catch the next two episodes of Graceland. "The Head of the Pig" airs on Wednesday and "Home" airs on Aug. 27, both at 10 p.m. on USA.
