Although on Sunday Animal Kingdom, the Codys recouped their house and some more from Pam, the atmosphere around the thieves’ den was anything but festive. While Pope, still walking around, saw an opportunity to do a good deed by doing a really, really bad thing, Craig and Renn seemed determined to win an unspoken contest to see which of them made worse picks. could make, and Deran gained a new enemy. even if an old one closed him in. And if you keep reading, we’ll cover all the details…
‘THE DEVIL WAS ONLY AN ANGEL WHO LOST HIS WAY’ | In the ’80s part of “Splinter,” Janine made the mistake of putting “Uncle Manny” in charge of Andrew and Julia while getting Max his share of their last job. By the time she returned from the meeting—which was extended by a romp with Billy, Deran’s future father—Manny had not left alone, but the children were nowhere to be seen. After searching the entire town, Janine returned to her caravan to find that they had set out in search of her; Andrew had been afraid that Max would hurt her the way he’d hurt Jake. When the youths got lost, they called their Aunt Birdie. And despite the argument between her and Janine, Pam assured her she could still call her if she needed to. Now I don’t know if that’s a wise friend, but it sure is a Good An.
Grumpy as hell, Craig invited a lot of Blaise and his underage friends for a rager at Cody’s. After J’s meeting with Lark – where they discovered they were the coolest heads in their respective families – the house was theirs again. But the bash turned out to be nowhere near as intense as Nick’s dad would have liked. The kids didn’t even want to use his hard drugs. (Imagine.) When Craig didn’t even throw all of Deran’s things into the pool, he took the entire crew to the beach, climbed into a dangerous spot and, when the police arrived, took a flying jump into the water . ocean. Which sounds bad – until you look how? walk spent the rest of the episode. When her usual drug supplier turned down her request to go back to work, she went looking for his baby-faced new dealers, knocked the shit out of one and anxious the shit of the other two. Like, damn it!
‘I CAN’T BELIEVE PEOPLE WANT TO GET DRINK IN A PLACE CALLED SON OF A BEACH’ | After Deran refused to be cut short on his drink order because the drink was going to Son of a Beach, he was visited by the owner of the new watering hole, Parker, unintimidated but still willing to pay the rest of the time. his order. When Deran took a hard pass, the man reached over the bar to get his bottles… at that point Deran threatened him with a knife. Parker pulled back and said, “Goodbye,” in a way that makes it clear it wouldn’t be hanging out for 10 or so. Later, Deran couldn’t believe how dead his bar was. Were the drink specials at Son of a Beach that great? It may not be only anyway, bartender Tommy admitted. “People say you and your brothers took care of Adrian.” As if that wasn’t enough, Tommy added, “It feels different since your mom’s gone.”
When J finally showed up to meet Pete, he wasn’t greeted with the good news that his partner in crime had found a buyer for all that coke, but was greeted by what could have easily been ambushed. Why, Pete wanted to know, was the DEA at his door? An agent Livengood? Ruh-roh. J emerged with his head still on his shoulders, but only because he was wise not to protest too much when Pete said he dumped the Coke. That, and Livengood wasn’t really interested in Pete, he noticed. “All this man seemed to care about… was Deran.” So, what did you think of “Splinter”? Will Pope kill for Cassandra? Is Parker really a new enemy for Deran… or a new love interest? And how long will it take for Renn to be killed? Press the comments.
