Graceland” Season 3 Episode 6 “Sidewinder” aired last Thursday, July 30, 2015, at 10:00 p.m. on USA Network. In this episode, Agent Catherine “Charlie” DeMarco (Vanessa Ferlito) took ICE Agent Dale “DJ” Jakes (Brandon Jay McLaren) to Miami as her supplier friend in a bid to get closer to Germaine Marsden (Russ Bain). Meanwhile,  FBI Agent Paul Briggs (Daniel Sunjata) positioned DEA Agent Paige Arkin (Serinda Swan) closer to Toros Berberian (Val Lauren), and FBI Agent Mike Warren (Aaron Tveit) and FBI Agent Johnny Tuturro (Manny Montana) set up an arrest so that Gusti “Vin” Kadek Pendit  (Mahedi Rakib) would come to trust Mike enough to tell him who wanted the sarin gas Mike found in his car trunk.  Read on to learn more about this episode.

The episode began with FBI Agent Mike Warren (Aaron Tveit) formulating a plan with FBI Agent Paul Briggs (Daniel Sunjata). They need to know how to get Gusti “Vin” Kadek Pendit  (Mahedi Rakib) to tell them who he was going to give the sarin gas in his car trunk to. Mike correctly guessed that Gusti was only a “middleman.”

During breakfast, ICE Agent Dale “DJ” Jakes (Brandon Jay McLaren) offered to go and help FBI Agent Catherine “Charlie” DeMarco (Vanessa Ferlito) in Florida as Mike. He recruited FBI Agent Johnny Tuturro (Manny Montana) to help him, was going to be busy that day.

Afterwards, Briggs went to Ari Adamian (Rhys Coiro), who had just been told by Toros Berberian (Val Lauren) that he was now Ari’s boss. Then, they ended up meeting up with DEA Agent Paige Arkin (Serinda Swan) at Clear Lines while trying to straighten things out. Vince Magarian (Tyler Cravens), the manager whom Paige had replaced, had lost a Sarkissian crate. Later that night, Paige managed to get the crate, which in turn, earned Toros’ trust.

Meanwhile, Mike, Gusti, and his wife, Madison Feigl (Katherine Crawford), a junkie, were all arrested by Johnny posting as a police officer. While in jail, Mike managed to pop a pill and learned that Madison and Gusti were together in a marriage of convenience. Afterwards, they got Gusti to watch Mike not giving him up during an interrogation. It was even though Mike was being charged for being on the run for an armored car robbery in Las Vegas. Because of that, Gusti decided that Mike was trustworthy enough to be let in on whom he was expecting a call from. Later that night, Mike called Briggs and told him that he would be staying the night at Gusti’s as it was important that they knew whom Gusti was dealing with. All he knew was that he was going to come into a lot of money for delivering the crate.

In Florida, DJ managed to secure a deal for Charlie after killing an alligator that would have eaten one of the Windgate brothers.

Later that night, while Ari and Toros were discussing matters, Paige, who had brought an FBI translator with her in the surveillance van, interrupted things after realizing that Toros was going to kill Briggs. They then flirted and kissed, and while “playing rough”, Paige broke Toros’ nose.

Back at Graceland, Charlie called for a house meeting. She had discovered that, after doing inventory, that twenty of her pills had gone missing. However, everyone in the house knew who had taken them, unfortunately.

Meanwhile, on top of the roof of Gusti’s building, Madison breathed some of the pills she was smoking into Mike as she had realized at the police station that Mike was also a junkie.

And that was all for the recap on “Graceland” Season 3 Episode 6 “Sidewinder”.  For more recaps on “Graceland” and other television shows, keep on following Movie News Guide (MNG).
