Graceland - Goodbye High

The constant gray area of Mike‘s (Aaron Tveit) life continues to get more complicated as he learns Briggs‘ (Daniel Sunjata) secret isn’t that he’s stealing heroin from current shipments but that he is a former addict who was forced on the drug years ago when an undercover operation went very wrong – something Mike chooses to keep from his Graceland teammates but does include in his report to Badillo (Pedro Pascal). He also has to deal with the more contentious relationship with Bello (Gbenga Akinnagbe) after the fiasco with the drug torpedo, and the nagging of both Paige (Serinda Swan) and Tuturro (Manny Montana) who try to convince Mike it’s time to break-up with Abby (Jenn Proske).

Unwilling to let the Odin case go, Charlie (Vanessa Ferlito) hits the streets looking for information only to find no two reports of what the man looks like or how he moves his drugs match. Killing two birds with one stone, Briggs suggest trying to introduce Bello, who has been forced to stretch his supply after loosing the torpedo, to Odin and try to take both down at once. However, the truth is far more complicated when Briggs tells Bello that he is the mysterious Odin.

It will be interesting to see how the Briggs as Odin storyline plays out, whether it is simply just Briggs using a shadowy figure for his own ends to get the bust or, like much of his life, if there’s a little truth hidden in the layer of lies. Although the team rallies behind Charlie when she comes clean, Paige is wary of having an addict who she may be forced to rely on in the house. The episode also gives us a little more background on Jakes‘ (Brandon Jay McLaren) estranged ex-wife (Ciera Payton) and the son who he has never gotten to know. His situation dovetails nicely into Mike’s love life as Jakes’ gives him the advice not to throw away his relationship with Abby.
