Graceland Season 2 Review “The Line”

It is so good to have Graceland back.

After the series’ blockbuster first season, I wondered if the writers could continue to maintain the flawless balance of fun and intensity the series perfected last summer and then “The Line” happened. The episode itself was purposely disorienting. Mike has been away from the house for a year. He is living in DC, dating Haven‘s Emily Rose (excuse me, Vera) and facing the realities of the comfy, powerful desk job he wanted. Meanwhile, his friends back in Graceland are all still dealing with the trauma from the events from last season. Briggs has left his partying days behind and is haunted by nightmares of the horrible Jangles mess. He and Charlie are finding solace in each other, but their relationship is tainted by Briggs’ lies. Meanwhile, Dale is unnervingly happy (due to purchasing an apartment where he will be able to see his son). Most jarringly, there is no longer any sense of order to the house. Guns are allowed downstairs, Briggs has retreated to his fortress of solitude and the fraternizing with your fellow officers rule is being blatantly violated by the house’s “mom” and “dad” if you will.
