'Animal Kingdom' Season 6 Episode 7 Review: Blood is thicker than water in season's best episode yet
We all knew that Season 6 of ‘Animal Kingdom’ will be filled with a lot of action and drama. With only a handful of episodes remaining, things are getting intense with each passing episode. As of now, the final season has been everything that fans hoped for, but something was still missing and if you felt the same, then Episode 7 will surely make you feel satisfied. Until now, we have seen an action-packed season, but the latest episode had the perfect balance of action and emotions.
The episode started on a devastating note for the Codys when Craig (Ben Robson) got to know that his baby boy has been kidnapped and his wife has been beaten up by the kidnappers. Even when Craig had a fight with Deran (Jake Weary) in the previous episode, he went to him and asked for help. Both brothers worked in tandem to take the baby out of the dangerous situation. The way they helped each other makes viewers realize that blood is thicker than water and it is family that comes forward when someone is going through difficult situations.
The entire scene where Craig and Deran manage to take the baby away from the kidnappers is brilliantly shot. However, we did have our hearts in our mouths when Cole, the kidnapper, shot Deran in the chest. But the real magic happens when they return home. There are two instances that change the tone completely for good. First, the hug between Deran and Craig was such an amazing moment. Brothers having each other’s back always makes everything emotional. Second, the scene where Craig cries about what just happened with his child was so heart-touching and might be a turning point in the relationship between Craig and Renn.
On the other hand, Pope and Josh are also going through some life-changing situations. Pope went on a date with Amy and was having a good time when the new detective, who disguised herself as the mother of one of the skateboarders, spoiled everything. He was really angry at her. Meanwhile, Josh spent a whole day with Penny and got to know about her sister who looked like a drug addict. They shared a moment where J talked about his mother, Julia, who became a drug addict and killed herself.
Josh’s situation with Penny is a bit weird, but it’s intriguing. They seem to be in love with each other but Penny is scared that her husband would find out that she’s having a good time with someone else. Meanwhile, Josh is head over heels in love with Penny and wants to be with her. It’ll be interesting to see how their love story moves forward.
‘Incognito’ was undoubtedly the best episode of Season 6 till now. It was the perfect mix of action sequences and emotionally charged-up moments that made everything better, certainly taking the ongoing edition to a whole new level.
'Animal Kingdom' Season 6 returns to TNT with a new episode every Sunday at 9 pm EST.
