Animal Kingdom Season 4 Episode 13 Review: Smurf

One for all and all for one. The Codys are here to stay.

Animal Kingdom Season 4 Episode 13 was an emotionally charged finale with plenty of surprises.

And it looks like Angela is here to stay.

In the end, Angela good by J even if she has ulterior motives. J is probably quite aware of it, but he's got a secret tool in his pocket in the form of Frankie.

Pope had no use for J and wanted him out of the house, but Angela convinced him otherwise. And by the time the finale was over, Pope understood that the Codys survival rested on J's shoulders.

It was surprising J shared the information about Smurf's will with Pope, but he had to do something. He has nowhere to go and wouldn't know what to do with himself without his uncles.

So, he made a

Animal Kingdom Season 4 Episode 12 Review: Ghosts

What just happened? My mind is blown. That's what happened.

As expected, Smurf made her last stand at Jed's farm on Animal Kingdom Season 4 Episode 12, but how it all went down was completely shocking.

Smurf is one crafty lady!

While I fully believe she expected to die at the hands of Jed and his sons, she quickly came up with a Plan B when Pope saved her.

Her screaming diatribe at the boys was jaw-dropping. I seriously couldn't believe what she was doing.

She knew Pope wasn't going to kill her, and she had no intention of killing Pope. Shooting him was just a warning to let them all know she was serious.

And she knew that J would handle business, and he did.

She put Pope in a position to make it look

Animal Kingdom: Shawn Hatosy on the Complicated Nature of Pope and the Emotions Surrounding "Julia"

Pope Cody is an Animal Kingdom favorite. He's complicated and dark and does some pretty bad things, but fans can't help but love him.

He's played to perfection by actor Shawn Hatosy who also played with our emotions when he made his directorial debut with Animal Kingdom Season 3 Episode 11.

Shawn takes another turn at directing, this time with Animal Kingdom Season 4 Episode 11, "Julia," which we only can imagine will take our emotions to new heights.

We had a chance to talk with Shawn about his character, what directing this episode means to him, and the future of the Cody family.

TV Fanatic: Congratulations on your Animal Kingdom Season 5 renewal. The fans are happy. I'm sure you guys are, too.

Shawn Hatosy: Yeah, I'm thrilled. Are you kidding?!

This is the second time you've directed an episode of Animal Kingdom, and like the first it's quite intense. What can you tell

Animal Kingdom Director Shawn Hatosy Breaks Down Angela's Confession, Deran's Plans and [Spoiler]'s Death

Animal Kingdom handed Shawn Hatosy a doozy of an episode for his second directorial effort. In Tuesday’s “Julia,” an action-packed hour that Pope’s portrayer framed with a sly, painterly artfulness, Deran schemed to get Adrian out of the country while he still had a pulse, Frankie approached J with a job, and after dragging Angela to a Nar-Anon meeting, Pope heard from her own lips that she’d been playing him since she showed up at the Codys’. The confession stung like hell, yet Pope was still grateful, because “nobody tells me the truth.” He also realized how

Animal Kingdom Season 4 Episode 11 Review: Julia

My heart broke into a million pieces. And I cried.

I blame Shawn Hatosy (who directed this episode) and the Animal Kingdom writers for that.

But I mostly blame Leila George and Grant Harvey for bringing so much chemistry and life to their portrayals of young Smurf and Colin that I couldn't help but fall in love with the couple.

Smurf and Colin should have lasted forever.

As soon as Manny walked through the kitchen doors on Animal Kingdom Season 4 Episode 11, I knew we were being set up for something bad.

And we knew Colin's death was inevitible. But, damn, I wish it wasn't so.

Related: Animal Kingdom: Shawn Hatosy on the Complicated Nature of Pope and the Emotions Surrounding "Julia"

You have to wonder if Smurf is carrying around loads of guilt for her part in Colin's death.

If she hadn't tried to get the boys back together, there

We knew this moment was coming, but that sure doesn’t make it any easier to watch. In this exclusive sneak peek at Tuesday’s Shawn Hatosy-directed episode of Animal Kingdom (9/8c, TNT), Deran breaks it to boyfriend Adrian that Smurf knows he’s been talking to the cops. In other words, he’s a dead man surfing.

It doesn’t matter that Adrian hasn’t revealed any Cody family secrets, either. The fact that he could is more than enough to put him six feet under. “How do you think we’ve been able to get away with

Animal Kingdom: Shawn Hatosy Directs, But Will Pope Lead?

Michael Ahr Aug 3, 2019

Shawn Hatosy, who plays Pope on TNT’s gangster drama Animal Kingdom, takes to the director’s chair for this week’s emotional episode.
