Snowfall Season 5 Recap

Following the fifth season, which saw Franklin caged with a voracious tiger and killers sitting in the grass like nasty hippies on LSD, this season may take us anywhere.

At the start of the fifth season, Franklin had a new girlfriend, the strangely stoic Veronique, and the two were expecting a child. Veronique has been separated from Franklin since the Season 5 premiere when he was kidnapped by one of his adversaries and had to flee a drive-by shooting ordered by him.

She has reservations about his ability to protect her and their child. Isn’t that innocent adolescent, now the child of a crack-cocaine kingpin, a recurring character in the show’s final season?   As unlikely as it may seem, infant powder could be mistaken for daddy’s powder.

“Franklin’s army has been wiped out,” states the plot summary for Season Five’s penultimate episode. Teddy is making future plans. “The family has broken down.” This episode explores the decision by Franklin’s uncle Jerome and his wife Louie to leave Franklin’s empire and create their own.

Cissy, Franklin’s mother, creates an assassination attempt on the man accused of murdering Franklin’s father—perpetually disheveled and discredited CIA operative Tedd McDonald—as well as Teddy’s fear of Franklin following a near-fatal drive-by shooting.

At the conclusion of Season 5, Franklin’s whole universe is destroyed, which could result in Season 6 focused on Franklin’s transition to a new reality.
