Animal Kingdom Season 2 Premiere Review & Discussion

Animal Kingdom Season 2 Premiere Review & Discussion

TNT’s Animal Kingdom returns for season 2 with an explosive premiere that changes everything for the Cody crime family.
After pulling off a heist that seemed out of its league and successfully turning the tables on police, the Cody family’s criminal enterprise appeared to be in a very healthy and prosperous place at the end of Animal Kingdom season 1. However, the same couldn’t necessarily by said for the family itself. Rising tensions within the Cody clan permeated the show’s first season, and in season 2, it appears those tensions will go from a simmer to a boil.
Coming into tonight’s premiere, ‘Eat What You Kill’, we had several burning questions about where the series and the story might be headed next, but we were almost certain factions would form within the family as it inevitably began to fracture. So far, sides haven’t necessarily solidified, but cracks in the foundation of the Cody family are definitely starting to show.
Perhaps the most noticeable brewing conflict is between Baz (Scott Speedman) and Pope (Shawn Hatosy) following the disappearance of Catherine (Daniella Alonso), the mother of Baz’s child. But Baz’s new life as a single parent isn’t the only thing bothering him in tonight’s season premiere after a risky heist goes very wrong on Smurf’s (Ellen Barkin) watch, prompting the boys to rethink the entire operation, which, in turn, brings us back to main question at hand: Is it time for a change in leadership?

Feel free to begin a discussion of ‘Eat What You Kill’ in the comments section. We will have a full review soon. 

Animal Kingdom season 2 continues with ‘Karma’ on Tuesday, June 6 @9pm on TNT.
