The first two episodes of ‘Animal Kingdom’ Season 6 have been pretty interesting and they were the perfect balance of intense situations and brilliant flashback sequences. On the other hand, the way the Cody Boys have been behaving this time around is also really interesting.

In Episode 3, it’s all about the Cody Boys doing what they do best: planning to do something big. A lot of things are going on in this episode and it’s pretty hard to keep up. However, that doesn’t mean that it’s less thrilling. In fact, it’s the most wee-paced episode in all of the episodes we have seen so far. So, the Cody boys are getting busy with their own things. Pope has built a skating rim for himself that he doesn’t want anyone else to use. Meanwhile, Craig is still in that moment of life where he is still struggling from the time when he was a drug addict. He is trying hard to be sober, but things might get out of hand. Meanwhile, Craig and Josh are getting busy with their own respective works. The best thing about ‘Animal Kingdom’ is that even though a scene might not look that important to the viewer, it is shot so well that you are keenly invested in it.

Even though much of the time is given to Pope’s story, every other character has been given ample screen time. However, it’s actually Pope’s story that everyone is deeply investing in. Pope has always been Smurf’s favorite child and we see in this episode how she always kept him under her spell. But the most shocking thing to come out from this episode was how she almost had Julia on her side as well.

Yes, you heard it right. She gave her the bait of a car that she always wanted and Julia took the car from her even if it was stolen. This is how we get to know that Julia also liked to have all luxurious things and understood what Smurf did. Even though Andrew was not convinced about that, Julia believed that Smurf might be right in doing what she does.

All in all, Episode 3 of ‘Animal Kingdom’ Season 6 is the perfect one to take the story ahead. Things are getting intense for all the Cody boys and we are absolutely ready to see what happens next.
