[Season 1 !Season 2 ]
This starts with a flashback. A con-man (Jeffrey Donovan - Blair Witch 2 ) meets a stripper in her workplace, and the two of them hit it off.
The main story is a follow-up to the previous Season's climax. Donovan and the stripper are now living as man and wife. They pack their valuables, including the stripper's teenage son and a million dollars cash that they stole from a mobster.
The mobster is a prime mover in a Romany crime syndicate. His mother ( Isabella Rossellini ) gets imprisoned on suspicion of murder.
This is reminiscent of The Riches (2007), a TV series about a family of con artists who posed as a family of rich lawyers in order to escape their past with a tribe of Irish-American travellers.
Charlie the con-man (Jeffrey Donovan - Blair Witch 2 ) still has psychic powers, but with the exception of a Lewton Bus at the start of the episode they really do not play a role in the story. With his voice-over about his problems, it could just be an incredibly boring episode of Burn Notice.
The mobster is now sleeping on the con-man's couch. His mother ( Isabella Rossellini ) is no longer imprisoned on suspicion of murder. She has gotten her grandaughter married off to the dead man's son and heir. The good news is that the arranged marriage is between people of the same age. The bad news is that they are teenagers, and the girl is violently opposed to the idea of having a career as matriarch of a massively profitable enterprise. She would rather fame than fortune, probably as an Internet social influencer.
The con-man's sister takes his son, her nephew, under her wing. She teaches him a short-con trick, how to short-change a bartender. Of course, there are a couple of things that do not make sense about this. Firstly, the con works because she is a pretty girl who can flirt with the victim. Obviously this would not be a good technique for a teenage boy to use. Secondly, the con-woman has a unique facial tattoo that makes her very memorable and easy for the police or anyone else to visually identify. Talk about drawing attention to yourself!
The ex-stripper is still obsessed with her dead lesbian lover. She has nightmares about her.
The mobster and the robber (David Zayas - Skyline ) go into business together. And since the con-man brought them together, albeit inadvertently, they are willing to bring him in as a junior partner.
Charlie the con-man (Jeffrey Donovan - Blair Witch 2 ) still has visions. This week they are of a raven - like in Game of Thrones . It is an ancient symbol of death, but in this show it just moves the plot along.
Rita Marks ( Isabella Rossellini ) has to help her grand-daughter secretly keep her virginity on her wedding night.
The episode starts with a flashback to Charlie's childhood. He had to look after his younger sister, running street-magic shows for the paying public while their mother was off cheating to win money in card games. Young Charlie had a vision of the raven, and his mother may have been able to have visions as well. She is also the focus of Charlie's guilt.
The main story focuses on Charlie the adult (Jeffrey Donovan - Blair Witch 2 ). He has joined his wife and her doctor at a psychic summer-camp. The boss-man has convinced the women that he is genuine, but Charlie wants to believe that the man is a fake. Well, Charlie is a fake with real powers so it is possible the boss-man is the same. But will Charlie let someone help him sort his life out?
The gangsters have problems while running their strip mall. Their new illegal phone bank has messed up the legitimate tenants' phone lines. The pawnbroker (Jim Beaver - Supernatural ) is particularly unhappy. Since he is a racist white man and they are men of colour it will not end well.
Charlie the con-man (Jeffrey Donovan - Blair Witch 2 ) is not having visions any more. However, he gets the opportunity to join a big con team.
The mobster wants to get back into the Romany crime syndicate. His mother ( Isabella Rossellini ) puts in a good word for him, but she has her own agenda.
The mobster and his partner discover what the pawnbroker (Jim Beaver - Supernatural ) was up to. It involves crates of russian-made automatic weapons, and a Latino biker gang.
Charlie the con-man (Jeffrey Donovan - Blair Witch 2 ) is not having visions any more. However, his wife has an unsettling dream that may indicate precognitive abilities.
Charlie is now working the big leagues, with his own hotel conventions.
Fonzo the mobster meets with the syndicate in order to get back into the loop. He and his partner have to finish their deal with the biker gang.
Charlie the con-man (Jeffrey Donovan - Blair Witch 2 ) is juggling his family life with his career in the big leagues, and spends a lot of time away at his own hotel conventions.
Paz, the guy who thinks he has real psychic powers of his own, has a full-on breakdown. Just like Charlie, he is no longer seeing his so-called visions. Does this mean that the Doctor has cured him? Or were the visions real, and he has been cursed? Also, will Charlie get his own powers back?
Fonzo the gangster has his perfect family together again. However, it is only a matter of time before he discovers that he has been betrayed.
Charlie the con-man (Jeffrey Donovan - Blair Witch 2 ) has flashbacks to his childhood. He had a vision about being abducted, and later his jail-bird mother told him she had the same dream. Can he make peace with her ghost?
Fonzo the gangster plans to sell out his rivals and save himself. However, his operational security is not as good as he thinks. Something is bound to go wrong, and innocent people may suffer.
