Exclusive: Watch the New Clip From the Latest Episode of TNT’s ‘Animal Kingdom’


The Cody clan is up to no good—as usual.

In “Dead to Me,” the fourth episode of Animal Kingdom, steely matriarch Smurf puts her men to the test as they prepare for Pope’s birthday. Meanwhile, a still reeling J gets a few hints about why his late mother was estranged from the other side of the family.

If you haven’t been watching TNT’s “adrenaline-charged” crime drama, now’s a good time to start. Based on the 2010 Australian movie of the same name, Animal Kingdom tracks 17-year-old Joshua “J” Cody (played by Finn Cole) as he tries adapt to his grandmother “Smurf” (Ellen Barkin) and dangerously zany uncles in the wake of his mother’s overdose. As J soon finds out, though, his grandmother’s house is no time for baking cookies—Smurf and her boys are a criminal gang that pulls off armed robberies to stay alive. (You can catch up by watching the first three episodes online.)

Catch the full episode, “Dead to Me,” airing Tuesday, June 28 at 9 PM ET / 8PM Central on TNT.
