The Hook - Episode 10

The Hook – Poker Face Podcast Episode 10

The tenth episode of Poker Face was titled The Hook and was the tenth episode of the show’s first season. Charlie’s time on the run appears to be at an end as she’s made a new proposal. In this podcast Gerry and Iain look at family ties.

This week, Charlie is located and acquired by Cliff (Benjamin Bratt), who returns her for a meeting with Sterling Frost Sr (Ron Perlman) at an Atlantic City casino run by Beatrix Hasp (Rhea Perlman) and the Hasp family.

When Frost is gunned down and Charlie set up as the patsy, she leans on Agent Luca Clarke (Simon Helberg) and pays a visit to her sister Emily (Clea DuVall) in an effort to escape the attentions of Hasp and the Five Families.

This is the only season 1 episode directed by Janicza Bravo. The writing credit goes to creator Rian Johnson, his second of the season.
