I'm Your Boogie Man - I like that this show somehow knows I'm guest-recapping, and gives me a playbill before the show even starts, telling me the entire backstory with character names and descriptions of who the characters are, written down with enough time...

Best Laid Plans

Best Laid Plans - Malloy gives Janet's cousin a job at the whorehouse -- sleeping with her in the process -- and Janet gets so upset about it that Malloy gives in and agrees that they can have a baby. We find out Jada kicked Donovan out of the house because he called her the "n" word. The Feds are investigating the kidnapping of a little girl whose daddy was killed on 9/11, just like Paige's husband.

Mockingbird

Mockingbird - This week, Paige screws up an arrest, sending an agent to the hospital, and the rest of the FBI on a wild goose chase after their perp. Lisa gets a tip that Poor Dead Fed Bert Summers was placing bets with Malloy's guys, and she sends Roy to investigate. Meanwhile, Donovan is beginning to suspect Roy, although he's not exactly sure what he suspects him of. And Malloy gets his panties in a knot over a college baseball player and throws a hissyfit when the owner of a minor-league team won't let the kid try out. Because no one in Richmond knows who Malloy is, or cares.

Boom, Swagger, Boom

Boom, Swagger, Boom - Malloy has a source who's selling him information about people in the Witness Protection Program. Turns out his source is a U.S. Marshal...and the U.S. Marshal's former partner in crime was the Poor Dead Fed, Bert Summers. Roy goes nuts when he finds out his former partner and bestest friend was dirtier than dirty, but he manages not to blow his cover, and also doesn't tell Lisa. On the other side of the law, Jennifer's having problems with her kids, Lisa's a promiscuous boozehound who may or may not have slept with a serial rapist, and Amiel has rage issues.

Undercover Angel

Undercover Angel - Paige goes undercover to bust a judge who forces women to sleep with him in order to get their children out of foster care. On the other side of the law, Malloy blackmails a woman into letting Mrs. Malloy into the Daughters of Virginia, and also has a man's finger chopped off. Jessica might be losing her mind, but she feels like he's getting a wee bit more believable.

Take The Money And Run

Take The Money And Run - Malloy and the Feds both get tipped off about a big drug shipment coming in to the docks, and there's a whole lot of running around and stealing money and triple-crossing people. In the end, two of Malloy's guys get whacked thanks to the Machinations of the FBI, which makes Undercover Roy sad, but, as Lisa told him, this is what happens when you join the Mafia. Also: Malloy -- still not that threatening -- kidnaps a boy with whom his wife really bonds. Then she gets all up in Malloy's grill about his not wanting children. Plus: whores!

Pilot

Pilot - Leslie Hope is sort of bad-ass, as a hard-drinking FBI big wig, but she has a femullet, and that's just wrong. The other Leslie in the cast, Leslie Bibb, is an incredibly annoying FBI rookie who has a total vendetta because her husband was killed on September 11th and she wants to "get the bad guys," like they wouldn't have kicked her out of the Bureau for being all unable to be objective and whatnot right off the bat. David Paymer, meanwhile, is terribly miscast as a really, really non-threatening Mob boss who sort of knocks people off, but really looks like he'd rather be reading a good book. But nothing really happens. No, really.
