Hustle, Series 6 Episode 2 of 6

Duration: 1 hour

Albert has decided it's time for a break so he's off to Sin City to try his luck at the casinos, leaving the crew to fend for themselves in his absence. At the airport, as they are seeing Albert off, the team are greeted by a familiar face, 'Liability' Finch, a bumbling, ex-grifter mate of Ash's from back in the day.

Finch seems to be in a spot of bother with a certain Head of Customs, Clifford Davis. Davis rightly believes that Finch is behind the theft of a valuable 'Van Gogh'. Unfortunately for Finch, when he stole it, things didn't quite go to plan and the painting is now stuck in a locker in a Brazilian airport. To make matters worse, the Russian art collector who paid Finch to steal the painting has threatened to break his legs if he doesn't deliver the Van Gogh in the next few days. Finch needs the team's help, but Mickey refuses; he's called 'Liability' Finch for a reason - he may be a great friend, but he's a hapless thief.

However, Davis is soon on the crew's case and he tells them how he plans to recover the stolen masterpiece and charge Finch in the process. Not only that but he demands Mickey and his team help set Finch up or else he'll take them down as well. Davis has Mickey backed into a corner, threatening the most vulnerable members of the team, Sean and Emma, but Mickey is reluctant to back down.

Mickey tells the team they need to lie low for a while and keep out of trouble, while it all blows over, but Sean ignores the boss and tries to help Finch, landing himself in hot water as well. Mickey is faced with a tough choice; help Davis take Finch down or let Sean go to jail. Will Mickey grass up a fellow grifter to save Sean's bacon?
