Episode Summary

EDIT
Wiseguy (1)
AIRED:
Vinnie Terranova (Ken Wahl) is freshly released from Newark State Penitentary after serving an 18-month stint to establish his cover as a small-time hoodlum. He meets with his real boss, FBI field supervisor Frank McPike (Jonathan Banks) and his coach and mentor, Stan Dermott and warns them he's not ready for his first assignment and wants down time. Dermott is killed by mob boss Dave Steelgrave and Vinnie demands to be put in to finish the investigation. He uses his ingenuity and his fists to get a foothold in the Steelgrave crime family. But it will take a while to finish this job as his new 'boss', Sonny Steelgrave (Ray Sharkey), becomes as much a friend as an assignment.moreless
