The previous episode began with a time jump into Janice’s past. In the past, we see her as a young woman with her little kids. We also witnessed Janice’s transformation into the badass Smurf and shot a black man to protect her kids. Luckily for Smurf, the black man’s corpse had a diary that enlisted all the criminals in the area, which gave Smurf a new purpose. At that moment, she intended to save her kid. But eventually, she became a savage who ran Oceanside with a deep thirst for power. However, we also saw Smurf’s lifestyle and the business that went around left a traumatic effect on the kids, especially the twins. Due to Pope’s condition, Smurf cared for him the most, while the twins craved attention.
Back to the present in Animal Kingdom Season 5, J And Pope successfully manage to take care of Livingood’s dead body without raising any suspicion. However, Derran gets stopped at The Drop by FBI Agents Perkins and Gonzales, who interrogated him about Livingood and Adrian.
