In this season of Animal Kingdom, Smurf is blamed when a perilous robbery backfires, which shocks the entire family. In the meantime Baz is struggling to be a single parent, and Deran is thinking ahead for the future.
When your characters are all addicts with disordered personalities, you have a fundamental narrative problem-and I think that's what I ran up against with Animal Kingdom. Sociopaths and narcissists do not change. Like, ever. They can't.
