Long time grifters Sam and Rachel love two things: each other and the grift. On the run from the mob, the two lovers move from one con to the next, winning some and losing others, but always finding a way to survive.
Season Three begins with Episode 13, The Rule of Thirds by Matt Phillips. This is Tijuana. Rachel’s tending bar and Sam’s doing errands for a wannabe cartel enforcer. They’re looking for their next mark. When Billy Jake, a dorky rich kid and ambitious documentary filmmaker, approaches Rachel about doing a doc on Mexican strippers, she convinces him there’s a better story to tell. Does he want to penetrate a cartel? She’s got the keys to the kingdom.
Southern Cal author Lawrence Maddox penned Episode 14, The Down and Out. Sam and Rachel take on Hollywood, playing the same writer/producer team they did when they conned a movie star a couple years back. This time their mark is a shady MD with Tinsel Town dreams and dangerous associates who use the homeless for medical fraud. While Rachel is stalked on a studio lot by a vengeful PI, Sam finds himself stranded on the streets without ID, money, or shoes. It’s a beat-the-clock trek through the wilds of L.A. as Sam uses his street smarts to escape his pursuers. Can Sam get to Rachel in time, or will he end up another faceless victim among the down and out?
Episode 15, Travel Money by Jonathan Brown, follows Sam and Rachel in northern California as they try to score that little bit of cash—travel money—to get you to the next gig. But you can’t live on travel money. And roping a mark will be no easy feat, especially a savvy one. It’s even tougher when a blast from the grifters’ past arrives in the form of a hitter for the Philly mob. If they can just complete the score and avoid some revenge, they’ll finally have toes in sand, cocktails in hands and won’t have to concern themselves with travel money anymore.
