There are apparently many, many layers to Paul Briggs on "Graceland." Last week, Mike tracked him to a Narcotics Anonymous meeting and learned that he was a recovering heroin addict. This week, Paul explained to Mike that he was captured by the Kaza cartel and had heroin injected into him for a week, before he was just let go. It was supposed to be an embarrassment for the FBI, but Paul kept it on the down-low.
This week, there was another bombshell dropped at the end of the episode. Mike finally believed that Paul wasn't involved in selling drugs, and told his handler as much. But then, viewers were let in on a little secret.
A deal was set up for Bello to meet a new supplier, known as Odin. Only Odin was a no-show. At least, that's what the rest of the team believed. Paul disabled his communicator watch and revealed to Bello that he was Odin and he would be his new drug supplier. He even had a sample as a show of good faith.
Now it looks like Paul has been taking drugs from the various busts he and the team have been involved in and selling them. Or is the story even more complicated than that? Either way, it was a pretty bold move for Paul to make that move with his team so close.
Elizabeth Sanfilippo, writing for The Examiner, marveled at Paul's chameleon-like abilities. "He's one guy in the bar, another in the FBI house, and another out on the streets. The only question now is: how long is it going to take before Mike Warren realizes the truth?”
If this is the true Paul Briggs, Mike has a long way to go before he'd even be open to figuring it out. He practically worships Paul at this point. Find out how it plays out as "Graceland" continues on Thursdays at 10 p.m. ET on USA.
