The story arc of our young drug-dealing friend, played with such nuance by Damson Idris, couldn’t go on much longer without him discovering that there are real consequences to his entrepreneurial street activities in 1980s crack cocaine LA.
After Franklin is released from prison, his eyes are open. He knows that his friend Reed Thompsom aka Teddy is probably with the government, and is wondering if that means he’s on the hook as well.
The season finale didn’t leave us with much closure on Lucia and Gustavo, so we’re hoping their stories are greatly expanded in the new season.
In Season 3, there’s a new cook on the streets who is messing with Franklin’s business. Now that he’s grown older and wiser, how will he handle these encroachments on his turf?
