Animal Kingdom’ Season 6 is slowly and steadily inching toward its end and we have a feeling that some of the former players might make an entry in the game to make things a bit problematic for the Cody Family. The last week’s episode saw Pope (Shawn Hatosy) getting attacked by a group of prison inmates and ignoring the fact that he is really vulnerable there. Even though his brothers have contacted some allies inside to prison to take care of him, Pope pushes them away by saying that he doesn’t them.

Meanwhile, the other members of the Cody Family – Deran (Jake Weary), Craig (Ben Robson), and L (Finn Cole) – are planning to do something to get Pope out of the prison. Things are looking bleak for the Codys because their enemies know that they are not as formidable as they were when Pope was out. So, they need someone really special to do their work and Deran has someone in his mind. With only three episodes remaining, viewers are going to see a major character return to the show and its none other than Billy. Yes, Deran’s father is returning for the sixth and final edition.

In the promo released for Episode 11, titled ‘Hit & Run’, we see the Codys trying to execute a prison-break scenario and it seems they would need every bit of help that they possibly can. We see Deran sitting inside a restaurant and meeting his father after a long time. Deran has told his father about a job that he would need to do for them and Billy asks, “Well, what’s the plan?” However, it seems that there will be some argument between the father-son duo because the clip ended with Billy telling his son to “wake up”. It’s unclear why he said that, but it might be related to the plan they make to get Pope out of the prison.

For the uninitiated, Billy, played by the supremely talented Denis Leary, appeared in Season 3 of the TNT drama and disappeared after robbing Daren's safe in his bar. However, he returned in the Season 4 finale and was a changed man. He became sober and repaid the money he took from Deran. A young Billy, played by Anthony Konechny, appears in Season 5.

Billy was one of the most integral parts of the show and it will be interesting to see how he helps his son and the other Codys in this dangerous situation. Nevertheless, the next set of episodes will be really intense and some familiar faces might make a comeback in the remaining three episodes.
