Snowfall season 5 spoilers: Damson Idris on lingering Alton mystery

What happened to Franklin Saint’s father Alton? In the first two episodes of Snowfall season 5 earlier this week, it was indicated strongly that Teddy killed him. That’s been the prevailing theory ever since the end of season 1 and at this point, we don’t have any reason to think that this isn’t the case.

Now, of course the question becomes when Franklin is going to get all of the answers. It’s going to be a big part of the rest of the season presumably, and it may be setting the stage for a pretty darn epic war.

Speaking as a part of a new interview with GQ, here is some of what Damson Idris had to say about what’s going on with Franklin, plus how the fate of Alton could play a big role in the state of things to come:

“The uncertainty of the demise of his father still lingers on his head, the chess played between himself and Teddy [Carter Hudson] is at its fullest, and there’s definitely a huge static and fracture within the families…”

We know that Teddy will probably do his best to jerk Franklin around, trying to keep him focused on the primary mission rather than anything separate from it. Even still, though, we know that in the world of television, things that are secret very rarely tend to stay that way for a long period of time.
