When Baz and Andrew retrieve the computers, Andrew walks back inside to get Julia, and Julia gets caught in the halls as a lookout.

However, Julia – The vice-principal assured Smurf that she was welcome to come back and pursue her ability in more difficult classrooms. Unfortunately, after seeing her daughter with Baz, Janine lied, claiming Julia and her violent brother had been kicked out.
Deran learned from a regular bar guest called Trey that an obnoxious influence had lived next door to him in the present. Deran had a sneaking suspicion that Tommy had suggested Trey drop by and bring up the situation. When confronted, the Employee of the Month revealed that people had been discussing the Codys and wondering who would take care of things like this if they didn’t. In reaction, Deran paid the influencers an eerie calm visit, broke a bottle into one of their skulls, and told them to get the hell out of Dodge, lest they end up with a genuine problem.
Meanwhile, J, who had fallen in love with Pam’s granddaughter Lark. He is attempting to purchase additional homes and seeks guidance from his current lover, pressing Pope to do something with his empty lot. Pope, on the other hand, was as unlikely to be rushed as he was to enjoy a round of bologna.
Craig enjoyed some quality time with Nick and Renn with her cousins on the lookout. The new father was having a difficult time dealing with the fact that he could only visit his son when his ex agreed. Craig is irritated that he has to deal with Renn’s cousins and supervised visits while she manages her newest operation. Because she no longer trusts him alone with Nick. The fact that he had no backing from Deran only made matters worse. He couldn’t see why Craig couldn’t just help out at the bar and not drink, and he couldn’t understand why his brother was so angry that he’d have to spend a week away from the baby. Craig, on the other hand, blamed Deran for everything; he wished he’d rejected his younger brother’s counsel and taken the baby and left.
Another thing we witnessed in Season 5 was Gia (Karina Logue) betraying them, which is why the Codys were unwilling to work for her. Everything goes swimmingly until Gia reappears in their life. Gia visits the Codys’ residence and tells Andrew about a job she has for them. After what she did to them, J is irritated that she showed up at their house. J needs to let go of the past and focus on the future, according to Gia. She tells Andrew a few seconds later that a new female in town is ruining her business because she has some powerful contacts, and she wants the Cody lads to take care of it. Andrew and J both agree they’ll consider it. J enters Gia’s office a few moments later, telling her that they are ready to take the position. The Codys get together and devise a scheme to set fire to the lady’s shop and warehouse. The Codys appeared to be on board at first. But it was only after they’d stuffed a vehicle with goodies and blew up the warehouse that they realized it was Gia’s, not her competitor’s! Pope assured her that the building and rugs would be covered by insurance. Although Gia worries that her investors will be upset and will pursue the Codys, Andrew believes that he is capable of eliminating anyone.
The episode ends with flashbacks to 1992, Smurf observes Julia and Baz shirtless in the water swimming together, and she notices Pope observing them from afar. When Smurf sees Julia in the pool, he becomes envious and advises her to cover up around her brothers. She makes a remark about Julia’s appearance before lying and telling Julia that she has been expelled and that there is nothing she can do to protect her at the school, as though Julia is being punished.
‘Animal Kingdom’ Season 6 Episode 2 Recap
Andrew is told by Smurf to put away his skateboard, which she thinks is foolish, and prepare to meet with lawyers in order to keep him out of Juvie during the 1992 flashbacks in “Rise.” She informs Julia that she must remain at home to keep an eye on Deran and Craig, while Baz is gone doing something for her. Smurf paid her lawyer extra to spare Pope from seeing a doctor or serving time in juvenile jail. Despite this victory, Julia didn’t see her mother in the same light as her twin brother and Baz. Smurf, in her opinion, just cared about himself. Julia had discovered why their mother didn’t like him skating, she told Andrew. he breaks his surfboard and punches the basement safe till his hands bleed because Julia is furious that Pope didn’t have her back.

Instead of breaking his sobriety, Craig kicks him out and keeps the girls with him. Craig protested that he couldn’t stay where he was. Deran was unmoved, and he politely declined. Deran later told J that he was looking forward to Craig abandoning his commitment to Nick and falling off the waggon. Trey not only had a new hunk who looked like Clark Kent on hand, but he also offered him a great surfboard as a thank you for driving the influencers out of Oceanside.
When a representative from a rental investment firm arrives to inspect Pope’s property, Deran becomes enraged since he was unaware that J had placed it up for sale.
Pope had spent $18,000 on wood (more on that later), Deran ran into the lumber yard’s owner, the same guy who used to arrange amateur surf competitions as a kid and took payoffs from Smurf to guarantee that her youngest son lost. When Deran repeatedly tased the man, he claimed he was afraid of Smurf. Deran tells him he must now fear him. So, what did Pope do with all that lumber? It looked like he intended to turn his cherished property into his own personal skate park.
When J was meeting with potential attorneys, he seemed to notice that Penny, the assistant who paired clients with attorneys at one firm, was exceptionally youthful and attractive. When she joined him in a pub to add his signature to a spot on some paperwork that she’d overlooked, he appeared to notice it all over again. Despite the fact that Penny was married to a serviceman who was stationed overseas, she didn’t mind having a drink with J.
In other news, a guy named Vince showed up at Craig’s gym, claiming to be the owner of a bike repair shop down the street. One thing led to another, and they were quickly bonding over the challenges of staying sober while riding one other’s hogs. Deran hands J the itemized write-off, and J expresses his concern about Pope. It’s for the purpose of obtaining lumber. Craig wanted to swap residences, and Deran told J that he loved him more when he was high. At the end of the episode, In the parking lot, Pope is constructing a skate park. He goes skating and has a good time now that the ramp is finished.
