Well this is not an episode for Snell haters. I laughed for a full two minutes  after the Snell scene. I thank God there was glare from a late afternoon window so I didn't have to get the full effect.

Wendy is one cool cookie. 

She's been shaping up to be a real force. The creative decision to get the whole family "in on it" was a smart move because it opens up a lot more for her than to just be "wife keeping secrets". 

Not really a Rachel fan and don't care for her smugness to Marty. She kind of made her own bed. 

I'm of course very much rooting for the Byrds to get away with it, so I hope they find a way to foil the FBI investigation. I'm just not seeing Rachel as a strong CI. 

Ugh - if I hear the dad spew the "you're a Langmore" nonsense one more time. 

I love the kids plotting and scheming. Again, it would be easy to go with 'brat teenagers rebelling'.

Loved Ruth's little plot to get the marina AND Wendy's scheme for the foundation paid off! 

Honestly, having a hotel, mall, etc., built up around the casino is a fairly straightforward plan that seems low risk and high profit. I'd be spinning wheels to eliminate the Snells. Even if it's something that takes a few years to come to fruition.

I think Marty might have miscalculated in not commending Ruth for the storage unit. She gave him quite the look when she walked out of the office.

In the age of binge watching, I know it's difficult sometimes to keep straight what happened on which episode, especially when watching a bunch of them over a short course of time. With that in mind, please be careful to only discuss the current (and/or former, if it relates) episode in each episode thread so as not to spoil other posters who haven't seen future episodes. Thanks! Please PM me with any questions.

As soon as Wendy remarked at dinner with the Snells that it was delicious, I knew they were eating the buck their kid shot.  I could've done without the boy taking out an innocent animal who was minding his own business eating some grass.  I'm not a fan of hunters, hunting season, and hunting scenes.  Wendy was weak-willed when it came to her son going inside the house and not out hunting.  I know they had to further the story, but...

I am glad that Ruth finally heard me yelling at my screen to let the bobcats go!

Ugh, seriously... the Snells. They need to fall in a lake.. I've really had enough of them, they are tiresome. Ruth's dad can go with them. I don't really care for this druggie, strung-out Rachel that came back. She wasn't like that at all the previous season. Marty blowing off Ruth is going to bite him in the ass.

This. Frankly, when she stole the money last season, I assumed she was either gone for good or she was going to be found using the money to build a nicer business somewhere else and the cartel would find her and use her head to scare Marty with. This plot didn't work.

Did we know Rachel was an addict in Season 1?  Or she was recovering...stole the $$ and relapsed?? Her drug addiction seemed to come from no where (for me anyway).

I do not like the FBI guy.  He may have started off on the "right" side but he's become almost as corrupt and amoral as the Byrds & the hilly-billy mafia he's chasing.  I keep wondering if/when he will spin so far off his script that he gets taken off the case.

FBI Agent is ruining the show for me.  I'm righthere with every other character and all of the storylines, but every time he comes on the screen I remember I'm watching actors on a show and he's always going to be the guy who kills little boys in the 20's.

He started off just being an asshole, but he quickly evolves into a cartoonish evil villian.
