This can’t end well. When USA’s Graceland picks up for its second season June 11, undercover federal agents Paul Briggs (Daniel Sunjata), Johnny Tuturro (Manny Montana) and Charlie DeMarco (Vanessa Ferlito) are up to their old game, ambushing baddies and keeping their California beachfront community on the up-and-up.
This time, their target is Leon, a crooked fisherman Briggs tries to befriend—with seafood, and top-grade weapons.
Down at the docks near Graceland’s home base, Briggs hops on board Leon’s boat to entice him with a cooler of snapper—and a hidden arsenal of firearms.
“I got you the M1A Claymores, baby. The real deal,” Briggs says, encouraging Leon to spill what he knows about the Caza drug cartel’s latest movements. As his high-energy preview from the June 11 season 2 premiere shows, Briggs may have once had connections to Caza, but his allegiance now is to his fellow agents, who are staking out Leon’s boat as Briggs tries to distract him.
“I guess you’re not the only one who falls for Briggs’ charm,” Johnny tells Charlie as they overhear their colleague’s small talk over their walkie-talkies. Once Leon flashes Briggs a cooler full of cash as payment, the feds know the deal is nearly done. “They’re wrapping it up—look lively, people. Move on my word. Leon’s got a knife,” Johnny tells the crew.
Later, Johnny considers resorting to desperate measures when Briggs fails to keep up his end of the bargain. “If he’s not out in one [minute], you’re going in,” Johnny tells a nearby sniper.
