Animal Kingdom Poll: Who Shot Baz?

Talk about going out with a bang! TNT’s Animal Kingdom concluded its superlative Season 2 on Tuesday with the surprise shooting of Scott Speedman’s Baz and one hell of a cliffhanger: “Whodunit?” we’re now left to ask ourselves until Season 3.

As unstable as Pope is — and as eager as he is to replace deadbeat Baz as Lena’s father — you could always make a case for him being the guilty party. But, considering that Baz had just forgiven him for murdering babymama Catherine, the chances of Pope having opened fire seem more like “none” than “slim.”
