Just when you thought he was out ...
The Mob Doctor's pilot episode ended with a literal bang when mob boss Paul Moretti (Michael Rapaport) was gunned down by former mob leader Constantine Alexander (William Forsythe) right in front of Grace (Jordana Spiro). But the end of last week's episode revealed that Moretti didn't actually die.
"I think Moretti being alive changes things drastically for Constantine and what he's trying to do," Rapaport says in the exclusive video below. "Moretti wants power, Moretti wants money. ... He wants the throne."
The Mob Doctor's Grace Devlin (Jordana Spiro) and Brett Robinson (Zach Gilford) face all the obstacles a typical couple in their position would — working long hours, getting to know one another's families, and navigating the awkwardness of dating your boss. Oh, and then there's the whole issue of Grace secretly working for the Chicago mafia.
"I think [Brett] is sort of an escape for her from her whole background and where she grew up, and obviously from the mob," Gilford tells TVGuide.com. "But he's not totally different. He's not a pushover. He challenges her ... and I think he finds her strength and rebelliousness kind of attractive and appealing."
