Hustle season 1 episodes list:
Mickey "Bricks" Stone has just been released from prison, having served a sentence for attacking his wife's boyfriend. An expert at the "long con," he assembles his old team of fellow hustlers to pull off one last con before he retires for good. His team is diverse, ranging from old hand Albert Stroller, to the alluring Stacie Monroe, and the jack-of-all-trades Ashley "3 Socks" Morgan. Their "mark" is a greedy business man and with the con all going to plan, short con player Danny Blue enters the picture to try and join the team and could jeopardize the score. With the police hot on their trail, will Mickey and his crew be able to pull off the con successfully, or will Danny bring it all crashing down? On thing is for sure - the con is on.
Danny makes a big mistake and blows a con, which makes Mickey question if Danny is right for his crew. Albert is viciously beaten after cheating in a card game and the team decide to wreak revenge the only way that they know how - by playing the long con. The stakes are higher than normal with Albert out of the picture. Can they pull off the con, or will the Mark, a ruthless and violent person, cause even more harm?
Mickey Bricks and his team of con artists decide to dabble in the world of art this week, when they set up an elaborate scam to swindle a greedy gallery owner, by faking an early Mondrian painting.
Mickey crosses paths with Victor Maher, ex-fraud squad officer, now head of security at a bank. Victor blackmails Mickey into doing something he normally wouldn't do.
Desperate for a lucrative con, the team decides to fleece a bitter, rich divorcee but Mickey's feelings for her begin to cloud the issue.
The crew picks a greedy fat-cat as their mark for a con using his two secret weaknesses- gambling and prostitutes- but the situation is complicated by a previous mark who seeks payback for them claiming to sell him the London Eye.
