Animal Kingdom season 2 episode 3 spoilers: Smurf and J take a trip

Animal Kingdom season 2 episode 3On Animal Kingdom season 2 episode 3 airing on TNT next week, you’re going to have a chance to see a little bit of vulnerability. Smurf’s not someone who is kind and gentle, so with that her going to a wake probably doesn’t qualify for that, either. Yet, doesn’t there have to be something about this that circumvents traditional expectations? You have to hope so. If nothing else, maybe this does set the stage for some interesting drama for her and J to take on.

Beyond Smurf, all of the other characters are going to have their hands full dealing with everything from visits to Mexico to big decisions. Maybe it’s wrong to call all of these said decisions “life-changing,” but they could be depending on how they pan out.

Take a look at the synopsis below for more scoop.

Animal Kingdom season 2 episode 3 synopsis – “Smurf (Ellen Barkin) takes J (Finn Cole) to the desert for an old friend’s wake. Baz (Scott Speedman) visits Lucy (Carolina Guerra) in Mexico and Pope (Shawn Hatosy) bonds with Amy (Jennifer Landon) from the megachurch while babysitting Lena (Aamya Deva Keroles). Deran (Jake Weary) considers what he’ll risk to get a liquor license for the bar.”

Some other good news…

For those of you who are looking for some ratings news, Animal Kingdom is off to a rather great start! The premiere last week drew a 0.4 rating in the 18-49 demographic, which is even with the show’s season 1 average. The premiere was down by a tiny amount versus the season 1 premiere, but this level of consistency is great news and proof that the network’s promotional campaign worked. If Animal Kingdom does keep up this average all season, you can go ahead and write in a third season. In this modern age of DVR and of people streaming so much versus watching linear television, it’s increasingly tough to get consistent ratings year in and year out.

Hopefully, the story remains top-notch the rest of the way this season to keep people engrossed in the story.
