'Snowfall' Season 5 was off to an explosive start last week and Episode 3 titled 'Lions' picked up right where the action left off. The focus though moved towards Jerome Saint (Amin Joseph) and Aunt Louie (Angela Lewis) as they strike a deal with Skully (De'Aundre Bonds). However, it was the bossman attitude from Franklin Saint (Damson Idris) that left the audience spellbound.

The final minutes see Jerome and Louie meeting with Franklin and the latter rebutted saying that Teddy (Carter Hudson) was right about his aunt and unc taking matters into their own hands. He also states that he has to move the product the way CIA wants it and outs it bluntly across that he's the man they report to. The acting earned Idris some rave reviews.
