As we gear up for Animal Kingdom season 6 on TNT, it seems only natural that we gear up for a major death. If the spoiler-filled teaser (below) for Animal Kingdom’s sixth and final season published by TNT is any indicator, the crime drama will end on a high note. In fact, there are quite a few bangs. We also get a glimpse of the horror that erupts when Craig and Renn’s son Nick is kidnapped, as well as the extent to which Tyrant vet Moran Atias’ Detective Thompson would go to catch Pope in the murder of Catherine.
It’s easy to presume that not everyone will make it out of the series alive, whether because of speculation based on the source material or because the rules of the jungle would require that the Cody boys’ reckless lifestyle would catch up with them. Smurf, the matriarch of Animal Kingdom, was murdered in Season 4 of the show, which stunned fans. and her death is still remembered as the series’ most pivotal moment. They’ve demonstrated that no one is safe.
Who will die in Animal Kingdom season 6?
When you play with fire for too long, you’re sure to get burned, and the eldest Cody is actually on the verge of a cataclysmic fall. will we see another Cody fall? So, in the final season 6, will at least one Cody die? That appears to be a foregone conclusion, primarily because they will continue to put themselves at risk. However, the death that would touch us the hardest emotionally is Pope’s (Shawn Hatosy), and it’s probable that the writers may accentuate this. He’s the guy who would have had a different existence if he’d been born in a different place at a different time; so much of who he stems from trauma and the training he received under Smurf’s tutelage. It has put a sheen on him that will be difficult to remove in the end. He’s making an effort, but with Catherine Blackwell’s (Daniella Alonso) body uncovered, it may be too late. When the authorities uncovered Cath’s body in Animal Kingdom Season 5 Episode 13, a real skeleton from Pope’s past resurfaced.
The fifth season of Animal Kingdom ended on a big cliffhanger, with the police (eventually) uncovering the body of Catherine, the now-deceased wife of Baz (the Smurf’s adopted son). Pope assassinated Cath in Season 1 on orders from Smurf, who suspected Cath was planning to inform the feds. Pope’s guilt over killing Cath has played an important role in his story. As a result, the cops will most likely try to put together Cath’s murder to bring them all down. We see Deran, J, and Craig behind Pope, but they’re far enough away from the flames that they don’t appear to be in danger of being consumed.
Craig’s death may be the most devastating in many ways, given that he is a new father with a lot to live for; nonetheless, he continues to make poor decisions, and we don’t think he’s very good at pivoting in the field. It’s actually more difficult to see him dying than Deran or J. We’ll say this about J, Cody’s nephew and the family’s outcast if he survives, he’s undoubtedly the character who will wreak the greatest havoc in the long run. He has the best criminal intellect, but he lacks the ability to execute as well as the others.
