Recap of The Righteous Gemstones Season 2 Episode 8

‘The Righteous Gemstones’ begins with a flashback montage that transports the audience to Memphis in 1993. Junior (Eric Roberts) tries to persuade his father that pro wrestling has changed dramatically and that any promotion that isn’t one of the big ones is doomed to fail. He even appears to persuade Glendon to hand over the proverbial baton and liquidate the gaming activities to him. Glendon, on the other hand, forces Junior to bind himself at gunpoint and flees with the money after the fire sale. He later approaches Eli, as we know, intending to launder the money through his church.

The four motorcycle-riding attackers have not yet divulged anything to the police. Martin tries to break their quiet with money, but it fails. “Baby” tries to sell his wares at a nursing home. After that, he sees his sister, who advises him to go and reunite with Harmon, who appears to live nearby. Harmon as an adult is played by Macaulay Culkin. He seemed to be doing fine. He is married with children and lives in one of those enormous mansions that exude a sense of affluence. Harmon offers to forgive his father on the condition that “Baby” Billy allow him to punch him once. Billy, “Baby,” grudgingly accepts and is knocked off his feet.

Eli expresses his gratitude to his family members at the Gemstone compound, including Gideon for his recklessness and courage in apprehending the attackers, Judy for singing to him while he was on life support, and Kelvin (Adam DeVine) and Keefe for staying with him and assisting him in getting back on his feet. Jesse feels left out, but is strangely unconcerned about it. Seeing his father in that hospital bed appears to have given him perspective on what is important in life.

Amber, ever ambitious, is disappointed for both of them and appears to blame her husband of not being driven enough. Later, Eli and Jesse talk, and the former eventually admits that Jesse has kept things going in his absence. Meanwhile, Kelvin confronts Torsten and successfully drags the big cross upright. Before departing with the other muscle-bound males, Torsten informs out that Kelvin did not have to accomplish any of this. After all, he owns the house.

The End of The Righteous Gemstones Season 2 Episode 8: Who Is Responsible for the Gemstone Attacks?

Even though Eli assures his children that if Junior and his children get along, he knows that certain things need to be resolved and heads to Memphis. Eli attacks the man while surrounded by Junior’s professional wrestlers. Junior, he suspects, has come after him because of Glendon. Thaniel Block is found to have paid a visit to Junior in order to conduct an interview on Eli. That peaked Junior’s interest, and he went in search of the Gemstone family patriarch.

Junior has no intention of looking for his father. This is acceptable given that Glendon pointed a gun at him during their previous encounter. Junior finds Eli’s admission that his own father shot Glendon and that the latter is now buried beneath a theme park more acceptable than Glendon fleeing to Bolivia with the money. The Gemstones are the ultimate of dysfunctionality in our opinion; the Marshes are in a completely different league.

Soon after, the big reveal occurs. Junior is not to blame for the attacks. The chances of him lying are nearly nil. He has absolutely no incentive to lie right now. Eli has pledged to forgive him for his actions in the attacks. Even if he didn’t, the meeting occurs on Junior’s area. As a member of the Dixie mafia, he could have made Eli disappear if he truly wanted to. This implies that the attacks were carried out by someone else.

The attackers are freed from police custody in the episode’s last scene. They are obviously well-funded and committed to their cause. The Lissons are the most likely suspects, based on the process of elimination. They believe Amber and Jesse will be unable to contribute $10 million to Zion’s Landing until Eli is alive. The attack on Amber and Jesse was most likely intended to be a deception. While shooting at the bus, the attackers purposefully missed them.
