Graceland, Daniel Sunjata

Jeff Daly/USA Network

When Graceland's Briggs (Daniel Sunjata) breaks bad, can he ever come back to what he used to be?

Graceland is about to get darker than it ever has (and that's saying something when the main character was pronounced dead and brought back in the season premiere!). This week's intense episode, "Sidewinder," finds Briggs helping Paige (Serinda Swan) in her undercover operation, and things get...well, let's just go with "stressful." But that's definitely an understatement.

The team's infiltration of the Armenian Mafia continues, but when the whole op gets compromised, Briggs is forced to make a choice that he may regret. E! News has an exclusive first look at the high-stakes episode right now, and it's not for the faint of heart.

Press play on the exclusive video above now to watch the sneak peek!

Well, we do not want to be Vince right about now. After he angrily threatens to go to US Customs and expose the whole operation, he's clearly not long for this world. But before he gets shot in the head, Briggs takes control of the situation, and burns the dude's face off on an plane engine! Yikes. 

It's clear that Briggs is going to be pushed to the edge in this week's episode...but will he ever be able to come back once this undercover gig ends? Or will he be changed forever?

Graceland airs Thursdays at 10 p.m. on USA Network.

(E! and USA Network are both part of the NBCUniversal family.)
