'Snowfall' season 3 episode 6 preview: DEA cracks down on Reed's new partner in search of missing agent Soledad
Franklin's father tries to tell him in the promo of the upcoming episode titled 'Confessions' that Franklin shouldn't blindly trust someone like Reed because someone who is on the government's side will, at any given point, throw away their sources for the success of their operations
In 'Snowfall' season 3 episode 6 we will see Franklin Saint (Damson Idris) and Reed Thompson (Carter Hudson) begin to grow suspicious of each other. One of the main reasons for this could be the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) cracking down on Reed aka undercover CIA agent Teddy McDonald's operation in Los Angeles after one of their agents goes missing.
This is the very agent, Soledad (Adriana DeGirolami), who was working with Reed, hoping to one day bring down the entire Columbian cartel. She was shot down by Gustavo Zapata (Sergio Peris-Mencheta), who was suspicious of her presence at Reed's place and Reed, who did not want to ruin his operation, gets rid of her body. Of course, no one at the DEA is aware she is dead and in their attempt find the reason behind her disappearance, put pressure on Reed's new partner, his ex-wife.
Franklin's father, Alton Saint (Kevin Carroll), who is not really on great terms with his son, tries to tell him in the promo of the upcoming episode titled 'Confessions' that Franklin shouldn't blindly trust someone like Reed because someone who is on the government's side will, at any given point in time, throw away their sources for the success of their operations.
Not in so many words, but he tries to explain why Reed is someone to beware of, despite how useful Franklin is to him at this point in time. While Franklin has been aware of Reed's connection to the government since he got Franklin out of prison in the season 2 finale, Reed himself became aware of Franklin's knowledge a while later.
While Reed does need Franklin to move the bricks of pure cocaine he gets from Columbia to this side of the border, he is also suspicious of Franklin and it seems from the promo that this partnership may not really last long enough if the two of them do not work through the ever-growing rift.
Apart from this, Franklin will also be getting in touch with Avi Drexler (Alon Aboutboul), a man he left hanging in Mexico because he tried to con Franklin out of his black money, which he wanted to use to open an offshore account.
This time, however, Franklin goes in guns blazing, literally! From the promo, it looks like Franklin is ready to even pull the trigger at Avi to get what he wants, but what exactly does he want? We will have to see in 'Snowfall' season 3 episode 6.
Episode 6 will air on FX at 10 p.m. Wednesday, August 14.
