Graceland, Season 1, Episode 12: “Pawn”
Written by: Jeff Eastin
Directed by: Russell Lee Fine
Airs Thursdays at 10 pm (Et) on USA
On this week’s Graceland finale, Briggs continues acting shady, Johnny has his feelings hurt, Jakes chooses a side, Paige encourages Mike’s hunt for Briggs, and Jangles finally reveals himself and attacks.
Graceland‘s at its best when everyone in the house is working together against a common enemy; so, while it was entertaining watching the house nearly implode as dissension separated the team, getting not one but two scenes with the whole house (sans Briggs, at first) gathered is still a nice treat, as well as a return to the happy days at season’s beginning. With any ensemble cast, it’s difficult for shows to find a group of people that not only work well together, but also have excellent chemistry on screen. »

“Graceland’s” story of revenge came to a bloody conclusion on Thursday’s season finale. But the USA drama’s creator Jeff Eastin left some loose threads that he plans to pull on during its recently announced second season, debuting next summer. Note: Spoilers if you haven’t watched Thursday’s Season 1 finale, “Pawn.” On the season finale, Briggs (Daniel Sunjata) goes Awol in his search for Jangles (Vincent Laresca), the drug lord that got him hooked on heroin and killed the members of his first safe house, including the woman he loved. That leads him to Charlie (Vanessa Ferlito) and the mysterious Mexican agent. »

How will Briggs (Daniel Sunjata) get out of this one? USA Network's recently renewed Graceland concludes its freshman run with a finale that picks up after Briggs disappears for parts unknown. The season closer also marks the reveal of drug boss Jangles, which comes as the house divides between Briggs and Mike (Aaron Tveit). "There will definitely be some firm lines drawn at the end of this finale but at the same time, certain lines get blurred," creator/showrunner Jeff Eastin tells The Hollywood Reporter. "There is an interesting gray area that the characters go in. They start to realize

We’re not sure where Briggs (Daniel Sunjata) took off to at the end of last week’s episode of the recently renewed Graceland, but in this week’s season finale, Mike (Aaron Tveit) isn’t going to wait for an answer to come his way. He’s going to find Briggs himself.
The problem? His housemates are on the line, specifically Dale (Brandon Jay McLaren), who, as this exclusive sneak peek indicates, could be in major trouble for helping Briggs get away (if he is, indeed, on the run).
Take a look below and catch the finale tomorrow at 10 p. »

The CW is planning a spin-off of Supernatural. Generally, I like the idea of a spin-off but it’s my least favorite kind: a backdoor pilot spin-off focusing on an a character we haven’t met yet. That character that will be introduced in the 20th episode of the upcoming season. Isn’t there enough depth to the Supernatural universe to create a series around an established character? I liked Christian Campbell‘s character — and the idea of Christian Campbell in a TV series with no awkward facial hair. On a more exciting note, Felicia Day will return as lesbian nerd Charlie.
I thought they’d make a fun spin-off when the episode originally aired.

Mike grew suspicious that Paul Briggs was stealing drugs from their investigations this week on "Graceland." Especially after he learned that Paul was left by himself to process the largest haul of drugs they'd ever seen. So he followed him. He uncovered something perhaps even more shocking.
Peering around a door frame, he heard Paul addressing a group of people. "Hi, my name is Paul and I’m a heroin addict," he said.
SheKnows could only muster a "Whoa" in response to this big revelation. No wonder Paul knew that Charlie needed to get some more back in her system so she could be straight for her debrief. Charlie had risked her career by taking heroin to try and maintain her cover. Now, she risks addiction. And apparently, she's not the only one who may be battling it.

This week's "Graceland" revealed a shocking secret about Paul Briggs (Daniel Sunjata): The FBI agent is attending Narcotics Anonymous meetings as a result of his heroin addiction. Will Mike's (Aaron Tveit) discovery affect his ongoing investigation into Briggs, and will he use that knowledge to end Briggs' career?
The Huffington Post spoke to Sunjata to find out how the ending of "Hair of the Dog" will impact the characters going forward, and whether Briggs has more secrets up his sleeve.
Briggs is at the top of his game, and Mike has been placed in Graceland to investigate him, instead of being assigned to D.C. Is there any part of Briggs that suspects Mike's motives for being in the house?
Absolutely, because Briggs has a past -- that is one of the things that's teased out over the course of the first season. He's well aware of it, and he »

From show creator Jeff Eastin (White Collar), the USA Network drama series Graceland delves into the lives of an elusive group of undercover agents from the FBI, DEA and Us Customs, who live and operate under one roof. Johnny Tuturro (Manny Montana) is the fun-loving prankster of the house, Briggs' (Daniel Sunjata) right hand man and the heart of Graceland.

You've got to fake it to make it on USA's "Graceland," and in Thursday's episode, Briggs (Daniel Sunjata) and Charlie (Vanessa Ferlito) have to sell the euphoria of a heroin high to keep their cover -- in fact, their lives depend on it.
As HuffPost's exclusive preview clip illustrates, the secret to faking a high is to perfect the art of the "O-Mouth," which also happens to be the title of this week's episode. Check out the risque clip above, in which Mike (Aaron Tveit) catches his fellow FBI agents in a compromising position. (Or does he?)
Read the episode description for "O-Mouth" below.
While Mike gets deeper into Bello’s organization, Briggs and Charlie resume their former identities as a sexually-charged couple to get intel on a mysterious drug supplier called Odin.

Daniel Sunjata portrayed the playboy firefighter on FX's "Rescue Me" for seven seasons. And although he had done recurring stints on ABC's "Grey's Anatomy" and NBC's "Smash," the actor says starring on a series wasn't his plan. "I loved my time on 'Rescue Me,' but I didn't really want to do TV when it was over," the actor said during TheWrap's visit to the Fort Lauderdale, Fla. set of his new USA series "Graceland." Sunjata said that being a series regular on the show began to feel monotonous to him, leaving him »
