Summary: Charlie comes clean about the bust that went wrong, Briggs follows suit.
The show is slowly becoming the new Burn Notice. It’s got a lot of twists and turns and it’s almost impossible to keep up.
It looks like DJ has a son and is looking to try and know about him, despite wanting to keep safe.
Briggs works Mike and tells him about how he was a heroine addict. Mike uses this information to try and get him help from Juan. It’s unclear if Juan believes him or not but it doesn’t look like he does.
Mike is getting more and more attached to Abby and it looks like he thinks that it will become a relationship, despite the fact that he’s been lying to her since day one. He wants to continue the relationship when he goes back to D.C. which he thinks is going to happen soon.
There is quite a twist at the end of the show and while a part of me believes it to be true, a part of me doesn’t. It might just be a ploy to try and get Bello but it’s hard to know.
Here’s the recap of the show:
