Danny McBride’s sense of humor is multi-layered. The obvious kind makes you chuckle right away, whereas the subtle kind makes you think. The second season of ‘The Righteous Gemstones’ concludes with a bang. The identity of those responsible for the Gemstone family’s attacks are ultimately revealed. “Baby” Billy (Walton Goggins) returns as the Gemstones and the Lissons celebrate the establishment of Zion’s Landing. Joe Jonas makes another unexpected cameo in the final episode of the show. Here’s all you need to know about ‘The Righteous Gemstones’ second season finale. WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD.

Recap of the Season 2 Finale of The Righteous Gemstones

‘I Will Tell of All Your Deeds,’ season 2 episode 9, opens with revealing many mysteries that have emerged over the season. Lyle (Eric André) and Lindy (Jessica Lowe) are revealed to be the masterminds behind the Gemstone attacks. The first scene of the episode depicts what occurred in Thaniel Block’s (Jason Schwartzman) rented house prior to the arrival of the Gemstone siblings in episode 2.

Thaniel and Lyle met to explore their collaboration. Lyle was the one who told Thaniel about Makawon Butterfield. However, Thaniel desired a bigger fish, and no fish is bigger in America’s murky pond of religion than Eli (John Goodman). Lyle and Lindy had already approached Jesse (McBride) and Amber (Cassidy Freeman) and requested them to join them on Zion’s Landing.

Lyle was being harmed by Thaniel’s investigation. Thaniel rejected Lyle’s concerns, even threatening to publish about Thaniel’s church if he didn’t provide him with information on Eli or other influential pastors. Lyle attempted to appease Thaniel by selling off four pastors from his own church, but Thaniel turned down the offer. When Lyle emerged from the house, the same pastors were waiting for him in the car. He informed them that Thaniel had discovered their transgressions.

What happened next is a perfect example of the cascading effect. Instead of weapons, one of them had packed grenades. Doug, another, pulled the pin on a concussion grenade, which detonated inside the automobile. Thaniel rushed out and shot him, killing the first. He threw a pin-less bursting grenade, and the resulting explosion blew Doug up on the tree. Both are no longer alive.

Thaniel ran inside while shooting and was struck by a ricocheting bullet. Chet, one of the two remaining men who arrived with Lyle, was the one with the torch in episode 2. Lyle burns them alive along with the cottage, believing that the Gemstones may have seen them and not wanting to leave any proof.

Things are moving forward now that Eli has granted his assent to Zion’s Landing. A celebration is planned for the same site in Florida where the hotel is due to open. “Baby” Billy appears, clearly determined to be the father of his and Tiffany’s child. Tiffany gives birth in the middle of a toilet. However, the baby becomes trapped inside the toilet bowl, and “Baby” Billy is forced to pull it out. He begs Tiffany’s forgiveness, and the two reunite.

Season 2 of The Righteous Gemstones is coming to an end. Are Lyle and Lindy Lissons still alive? Who informed the Cycle Ninjas of their location?

Yes, Lyle and Lindy Lissons are no longer alive. Lyle and Lindy appear to have a terrible and abusive connection with Lyle’s father. Lyle suspected that Jesse and Eli had a similar relationship. Jesse discovers at the party that Lyle has been giving information to Thaniel after Chet’s wife arrives, demanding to know where her husband is.

Lyle tries to tell Jesse the truth, disclosing that he was responsible for the attacks on his family. He appears to sincerely believe that Jesse is capable of accepting his father’s death if it advances his own aspirations. Jesse Gemstone has a lot of flaws, yet he really wants to lead the Gemstone Ministries. But he is not that awful.

Meanwhile, Junior informs Eli that the weapons used to attack him match those sold in Texas. Finally, it is revealed that Lyle and Lindy devised the scheme together. After shooting BJ in the leg and forcing the rest of the Gemstone family to walk into the ocean, they manage to flee. Martin, on the other hand, keeps an eye on them. The cycle ninjas, to whom Lyle owes a large sum of money, are notified that the Lissons have arrived in Alaska.

After Lyle betrays her and throws her out of their cottage in a box, Lindy is shot to death by the cycle ninjas. Lyle tries to flee in his underwear, and the cycle ninjas let him go, probably knowing what is going to happen. He is frozen to death on the icy landscape, and as the episode concludes, his body is destroyed and eaten by a group of wolves.

What Becomes of Zion’s Landing?

The Lissons planned to establish Zion’s Landing, a Christian timeshare resort, on Florida’s beautiful beaches. They enticed Jesse and Amber with promises of more income, influence, and glitz. Jesse realized he couldn’t put $10 million into the project because all he owned belonged to the church. After surviving the attack, Eli chose to fund Zion’s Landing in order to reconcile with his eldest son.

The Lissonses, however, are no longer alive. The season 2 finale reveals that the Gemstone family has entirely taken over the project and incorporated it into their ever-expanding empire. Eli is an excellent pastor, but he is an even greater businessman. He recognizes that, regardless of its origin, the concept of a faith-based resort has merit and resolves to remain invested in it.

Who Are the Ninjas of the Cycle?

Jesse refers to the assailants on motorcycles as “cycling ninjas.” The Lissonses run an orphanage, which is revealed in the season 2 finale. Lyle believes he has power over them, but he is proven mistaken. He dispatched them to track out Eli. However, they mistook the Gemstone patriarch for being on the bus and instead shot at Jesse and Amber. Even though they were able to shoot Eli, he lived.

When Lyle refuses to pay, the teenage hooligans brandish their weapons at him. Lyle is still unconcerned about the threat until one of the cycle ninjas shoots on the ground near him. Lyle, afraid, agrees to pay. But, as we all know, he never does and instead flees to Alaska.
