Last Episode's Recap: http://www.examiner.com/article/graceland-1x11-happy-endings
Summary: A Graceland member is taken hostages by a brutal Caza enforcer named Jangles.
This is definitely one of the hottest shows of the summer and I would expect that USA will be hoping this show can be staple for it’s Summer lineup, since now that Burn Notice has finish it’s run.
We learned a lot about the characters in the short amount of time the show’s been on the air.
We get to the truth of why Briggs wants Jangles so bad. It’s not because Jangles got him addicted to heroin, but because Jangles killed Lisa.
Briggs was able to clear his name entirely, including the cloud over his head about him being Odin. It’s a wonder if he really was Odin or was just playing the part or working with the guy the FBI thinks is Odin.
Mike gets offered a job in D.C. like he wanted, but will he stay there? What’s going to happen with his relationship with Paige, no doubt that they have been growing closer especially over the last few episodes.
While it’s not the best cliff hanger, it does certainly offer the question of what is it that Briggs wants to tell Mike. My guess is that it has something to do with the tape and how it was given to the police. Though, with Briggs, it really could be anything.
Show is done for the season and won’t be retuning to probably June/July next year.
