Graceland Season 1 “Bagman” Review

What gives, Graceland? Is Briggs really breaking bad? Previously on Graceland, the episode concluded with either: (1) the revelation of Briggs as a drug dealer by the name of Odin or (2) Briggs thinking on his feet and calling an audible when the real Odin didn’t show up for the meeting with Bello. If you suspected the former heading into this week’s episode, I’d say your hunch was pretty accurate.

Whatever Briggs endgame is, there is no doubt that the man is quick on his feet and for the moment, he seems to have a pretty good headstart on the rookie sent to the Graceland team to investigate him. In this week’s episode, Bello demanded another meeting with Odin. Thanks to a dressing room, a secret passageway and a backroom, Bellow was able to evade the Graceland team tracking him. Briggs found himself *this close* to being caught and quickly found a way out of his pickle of a situation by attacking Mike from behind and putting a pretty mean sleeper hold on him. Briggs fired off a bullet in a random direction and when Johnny and Charlie arrived, he pretended as though he too had just arrived on the scene and helped wake Mike up. Nice job at pretending you weren’t the guy that just strangled your colleague to the point of unconsciousness, Briggs.
