Bar. Possibly not That Same Bar, because there's jazz. Jakes rolls up to the bar and sees a tattoo on a man sitting next to him. He asks who did it, then clarifies that he means the tattoo under the one that's visible, and the man says it's was his gang initiation tattoo; Jakes says he has one as well. They shoot the shit about gang life; the other guy says he got shot twice in the chest, woke up in an El Paso hospital and fell in love with his nurse. That's how he got out of the life.
Jakes orders a Higgins Barrow whiskey, then buys one for his new buddy after buddy says that's his favorite whiskey, too—and my brother, who has never seen this show before, points out that the guy Jakes is sitting next to is obviously the man in Jakes's baby mama's life, since there was a bottle of Higgins Barrow sitting in plain sight in Cassandra's house, and she's a nurse.
Graceland. Briggs is doing the dishes when Charlie comes into that spectacular kitchen. He's mad at her and she pokes at him until he unloads the reason: the others in the house would now have to answer honestly if the bureau ever asks if Charlie's done heroin. Briggs is a lot more comfortable living with secrets than, you know, the other secret agents in the house.
Jakes and his new best friend chat. Best Friend says he and the nurse moved here, and he's raising her son. The man says Daniel's smart, like his mom, and Jakes has obviously targeted this guy, looking for information about his son. He asks if the guy has a picture. He shows it. Jakes fishes for details about Daniel's father; Best Friend says the father never comes up in Cassandra's conversation. Jakes offers to buy him another drink, but Best Friend begs off and goes home. Jakes haz a sad.
FBI headquarters. Mike meets Juan and tells him about Briggs attending the NA meeting. He says Briggs needs help and tells Juan about what happened to Briggs, Caza and all. Juan is skeptical, but Mike declares that Briggs is a great agent, he saved Mike's life, and he deserves help. Juan agrees and tells Mike to write it up. Mike's all, so do I get to go back to DC now?
Graceland. Jakes wanders into Mike's bedroom and picks up the photo Mike's granddad took. He brings up the subject of Abby and tells Mike his advice: he should stay with the girl. Jakes, sad and honest with whiskey, explains that the housemates all see Graceland differently—to Briggs it's his castle, to Charlie it's a family. To him it's just a house, so advises Mike not to let four walls get in the way of a relationship that might be meaningful.
