Does crime pay? And if so, for whom? Those questions are paramount to Sunday’s Season 6 — and series — finale of TNT’s Animal Kingdom (at 9/8c).
Though Smurf’s sons think that nephew J has made arrangements to split the late queenpin’s estate with them after they break Pope out of jail, Julia’s boy appears to have other plans. His, as revealed in the penultimate episode (recapped here), run more along the lines of, “I totally screw you guys over and make off with all the loot with my hot new girlfriend before you even notice that your backs have fresh stab marks in ’em.”
Will J get away with betraying his uncles? If so, he’d be the first. And he would have to survive one hell of a fight first. While counting down the seconds until the premiere of the ominously titled “FUBAR,” check out the below first-look photos from the finale — including one that includes the most extreme of makeovers.
The Wheels On the Bus Go Round and Round…
… until, all of a sudden, they don’t. As you may have seen in this sneak-peek video, the transfer of Pope from one prison to another doesn’t go quite as smoothly as the authorities hoped that it would.
‘You Want a Piece of Me?’
Regular viewers will know this particular expression well. It’s Pope’s tried-and-true “So help me, if you come any closer, that step is gonna be the last one you ever take!” look.
Just Another Day at the Office
Look at ’em. Craig and Deran are as cool as cucumbers. You’d never guess in a million years that they were in the midst of a jailbreak while dismantling their mother’s criminal empire, would you?
Though in the August 21 episode’s 1990s flashbacks, Smurf clinched her Worst Mother of the Year title by kicking out Julia, the teen and twin brother Pope appear to have been reunited in the finale.
An Unbreakable Blonde
Wow. So it finally happens. In the series’ finale, Flashback Smurf at last adopts the platinum locks that, along with animal prints and an overuse of the word “baby,” were the hallmark of Ellen Barkin’s version of the character.
