Graceland - B-Positive

Graceland‘s Third Season opens ten days after last season’s finale with Mike Warren (Aaron Tveit) officially dead to the world while recuperating in a hospital under an assumed name, Paige (Serinda Swan) continues to be wracked by guilt over her rash choice to send Sid (Carmine Giovinazzo) to kill her friend and colleague, and Johnny (Manny Montana) stuck in a no-win situation with Carlito (Erik Valdez) and the cartel. Although all of these storylines will be touched on none will be fully solved leaving that thread dangling to be dealt with over the rest of the season.

Graceland - Home

Neither the return of Johnny (Manny Montana) and Jakes (Brandon Jay McLaren) from Mexico nor the Sauce Night in their honor can scrub clean the stench of failure, suspicion, and secrets permeating Graceland. Despite finally selling Carlito’s father on the plane scheme to smuggle the cartel’s drugs over the border, Johnny is sick to his stomach for lying and leaving Lucia (Jamie Gray Hyder) behind. With the LAPD shutting down the human trafficking ring and killing Mike’s only connection to the Solano Cartel (Jon Sklaroff), all of Mike‘s (Aaron Tveit) hard work goes up in smoke and Paige (Serinda Swan) is left with unanswered questions and suspicions about what really happened to the scared young girl (Marina Shtelen) she promised to get out alive.

Mike‘s (Aaron Tveit) obsession with taking down the Solano Cartel spreads to the other members of Graceland as Agent Warren decides to put Briggs (Daniel Sunjata) in undercover with the cartel’s inside man Sid Markham (Carmine Giovinazzo) on the gang task force, and Johnny‘s (Manny Montana) attempt to reconnect wit Lucia (Jamie Gray Hyder) nearly gets him killed when he walks into angry guns dealers looking for the missing Carlito which forces the agent to make an even more dangerous decision. Paige (Serinda Swan), continuing the stake-out the human trafficking ring Mike can’t afford to close, goes a step too far in preventing another sale of the girls by beating the latest buyer senseless.
