Animal Kingdom Into the Black Season 4 Episode 6 review

We have all been dreading the time Adrian’s secret about talking to the police comes out, and “Into the Black” showed the revelation is almost here. I’m not sure if Adrian is going to make it out alive, but it will be interesting to see what Deran decides to do to keep Adrian safe.

I was provided a free screener of “Into the Black” for review. The opinions are my own.

For fans of Deran and Adrian’s relationship, this week’s episode was quite intense. It opened with Smurf being told someone close to the family was talking to the police. Smurf doesn’t like snitches and she immediately went into high alert mode. She asked Joshua to find the snitch, telling him it was part of being the boss in the family.

I don’t know about you, but I think I’m with Joshua when it comes to who might be leaking information about the Codys to the cops. Even though Adrian has been helping the police with busting a drug operation, he won’t say anything to bring harm to Deran and his family. However, Angela, on the other hand, has a lot of reasons to go against the Codys considering her history. Joshua suspects her. And I don’t trust her one bit.

Nothing much happened during “Into the Black,” except for the Deran and Adrian stuff. You could see Deran’s mind going into overdrive as he began putting the pieces together. He knew Adrian’s in trouble with the cops, but he couldn’t simply kill him. For a moment I thought Deran was going to strangle Adrian in the bathroom, but thankfully that didn’t happen.

After shooting Colby, we now know Deran is capable of murdering someone to keep Adrian safe. However, does Deran have the strength to stand against his entire family to protect the man he loves? Oh, the drama! I love it!

I want Adrian to tell Deran the truth as soon as possible so the two can figure out what to do about their current predicament together. Let’s see what happens.

Some thoughts and questions:

  • What is Mia up to?
  • I wouldn’t be surprised if Frankie finds a way to get back at Craig for breaking into her storage facility.
  • Do you think Adrian can come out of all his troubles alive?
  • Seeing a young Smurf making a job personal made a lot of sense. All the power to her!
  • I don’t think Renn feels comfortable with the attention Craig is giving her.
  • Deran is a murderer now. But he did it out of love. So, I don’t know how to feel about it yet.

What did you think of “Into the Black”? Let us know.
