Graceland - 2.02 - Connects - Preview
Best Scene - As far as most plot intense, Briggs's conversation with the Caza leader. As far as character growth, either Jakes or Charlie's big scene
Best Quote - Johnny: "You want a hug?"
Best Reason to Watch - character development
Biggest Shock - Charlie
Least Shocking - Jakes, but it doesn't make it any less painful
Best Character Interaction - Johnny and Jakes
Biggest Risk - Briggs goes to meet with the Caza cartel leadership by himself to get answers about the hit on Mike. I know Briggs thinks he's invincible but this is not a good plan.
Best Death Stare - Charlie and she wields it liberally this episode.
Weirdest Line Possibly in the History of TV - "Now I'm frisking goats." What?
Most Angsty - Charlie, who has a major scene with Briggs
Biggest Douche - Mike. Still.
Biggest Disappointment / Most Likely to be Labeled Eye Candy - Paige. They have her undressed several times this episode and we still get no character motivation or growth for her. Right now she's as useless as Zeke and this was her big episode.
Least Sympathetic - Charlie: "You're fine. You've been stabbed 5 times. You'll live. Sonya, give this man a tampon and uh, I don't know…hold his hand."
Worst Subplot - the freaking tape. Until it becomes an issue for Briggs, I don't care what's going on with it.
Most Surprising Subplot - Kelly, who could be great character growth or a predictable plot device
The "Oh Poor Baby" Award - Jakes, who gets hit hard this episode
Best New Character - Caza cartel boss
Most Disgusting - Gum sharing. Yuck!
"I'd like to do more background." "You've got this face. What more do you need?"
"I'm starting to realize that there's no such as a do-over. Not for you, me, or anybody."
"Is the door still on its hinges?" "More or less."
"Jangles, Cortes, whatever his name is, he didn't kill Juan. I did."
"…listen to me okay? As your friend, huh? You've got to let this go. It's going to drag you down. Trust me; I know."
"Oh, oh, we're talking about trust now. Really? You?......."
"Remember, Francis looks hungry." "Zelanski's hungry."
"What? When did this happen?" "Probably when none of you were looking."
"What the hell is this?" "A messed up sense of humor."
"Yeah, I pretty much keep to myself. I don't really talk much you know. They say your heart will tell you when the time is right. I've been listening to mine but so far, crickets."
"You got a plan? Well that's a first…."
"…your man held a gun to my head, hooked me on heroin, forced me to give up my friends and then killed them." "There was that."
"You're wasting yourself with Finch. You know that right?" "My mom said it takes all kinds." "She was an idiot too."
