The Player Sneak Peek: Alex and Cassandra Are Runnin' and Gunnin'

Tonight on The Player (NBC, 10/9c), Alex and Cassandra barely look before they leap — off a tall building — upon being targeted by a helicopter gunman.

In the freshman drama’s third episode, The Player and The Dealer (played by Philip Winchester and Charity Wakefield) have traveled to Los Angeles to stop a sniper from enacting revenge for a drug cartel. As seen in the exclusive sneak peek above, Alex barely gets a bead on their target when a helicopter appears, hailing bullets on their rooftop.

Can the pair possibly elude gunfire as well as gain the upper hand? Press play to find out.

Elsewhere in the episode, Alex asks a friend to further investigate his ex-wife Ginny’s murder — but Mr. Johnson intervenes.
