Here’s a quick recap!
In the previous episode, Janice made a time jump to her past. We see Janice as a young mother with her children in the past. Janice became a badass Smurf when we witnessed her shoot a black man to defend her children. Smurf was fortunate that the corpse of the black man had a diary in which he listed all the criminals in the region, giving him a new purpose. She was determined to save her child at that point. She became a savage and ran Oceanside with a thirst for power. We also saw that Smurf’s lifestyle, and the business that went round, had a devastating effect on the children, especially the twins. Pope’s condition meant that Smurf was the one who cared the most for Pope, while the twins longed for attention.
In Animal Kingdom Season 5, J and Pope manage to care for Livingood’s body without any suspicion. The Drop FBI Agents Perkins & Gonzales stop Derran and interrogate him about Adrian and Livingood. Deran is cool and confident, and the officers don’t seem to believe that the Codys were involved.
After dealing with the cops the Codys learn that Chadwick isn’t ready to let them go. Pope expresses concern about Craig’s insatiable urges and concerns about Nick meeting Craig in this state. Pope also finds the coke that Pete and the cartel robbed in Pete’s car. Peter claims he flushed the coke earlier. The Codys will finally be seen in action in Animal Kingdom Season 5.
